Biden administration weighing $1B weapons deals for Israel: source

The Biden administration is considering supplying more than $1 billion in new weaponry to Israel, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

The request from Israel is recent and under initial review, and the deals have not been approved yet, the source said.

The Wall Street Journal first reported on the deals.

The deals include $700 million in 120 mm tank ammunition, $500 million in tactical vehicles and under $100 million in 120 mm mortar rounds, according to the newspaper.

They would need to be approved by congressional leaders and could take up to several years to be delivered, it added.

The Wall Street Journal had described the proposed weapons transfers as “among the largest to Israel” since it began its war against Hamas on Oct. 7.
