Four Republican U.S. Senators have introduced legislation to provide for congressional oversight of proposed changes to arms sales to Israel. The move comes after the Biden Administration unilaterally paused a shipment of weapons to Israel in May without consulting Congress, causing concern about the U.S.' commitment to its allies. The Senators emphasized the need for stronger congressional oversight to ensure that the U.S. stands firmly in support of Israel, especially as it faces increased threats from terrorist groups and the Iranian regime. The text of the legislation can be found here.
