‘Here are the missiles!’ US Congress passes emergency funding for Israel’s Iron Dome — RT USA

Congress overwhelmingly approved an emergency measure on Friday to grant $225 million in additional revenue to Israel for the country’s Iron Dome missile defense system.Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid D-Nevada received unanimous consent from his colleagues Friday morning when he asked them to consider approving the measure, The Hill reported. An attempt one day earlier by the Senate to approve funding for the system had failed.Friday evening the House of Representatives also overwhelmingly passed the additional funding by a vote of 395-8. The packagewill put nearly a quarter of a billion dollars towards Israel’s missile defense system, which is jointly built by US defense giant Raytheon, as the country continues its campaign against Hamas in Gaza.“They’re running out of Iron Dome missiles to protect themselves,” Sen. Lindsey Graham R-South Carolina said at the hearing, according to The Hill. “We are with you. Here are the missiles.”“We are with the Israelis, because if they don’t have the Iron Dome, they can’t defend themselves,” added Sen. John McCain R-Arizona.
