Biden will oppose efforts by the US House of Representatives to force arms shipments to Israel

Washington (ANTARA) – US President Joe Biden will oppose attempts by the US House of Representatives to force him to send weapons to Israel following his decision to suspend deliveries if Israel continues its attack on the southern city of Rafah of the Gaza Strip.

In response to the delay, some Republican members of the US House of Representatives previously introduced a bill (RUU) that would force the US government to lift the postponement of arms deliveries. President Biden has promised to veto the bill.

“The bill would undermine the President’s efforts to implement an effective foreign policy,” the White House Office of Management and Budget said Tuesday (5/14).

“If the president receives the text of the bill, he will certainly veto it,” the statement continues.

Members of the US House of Representatives will discuss the Israeli Security Assistance Act in the coming days, one of the contents of which criticizes Biden’s decision to suspend the provision of aid to Israel.

The bill would also withhold budget distribution by the State Department, Defense Department and National Security Council until aid is delivered.

“We must ensure that the president is held accountable for his shameful intimidation tactics that threaten the security of our allies and the Israeli people by strengthening Hamas,” said the leader of the Republican faction in the US Congress, Steve Scalise.

The White House said the bill represents a misguided reaction to the Biden administration’s deliberate shift away from policy on Israel.

There are also concerns that the bill violates the president’s constitutional authority and has unintended effects, such as prohibiting the government from adjusting its military aid budget to help Israel, the statement said.
