The United States House of Representatives will today (Thursday) discuss providing assistance to fund the Iron Dome - this, after the section was removed from U.S. budget law, following opposition from Democratic members of Congress.



A few hours before the vote, members of Congress announced that they would oppose $ 1 billion in aid to Israel for the purpose of equipping batteries and Iron Dome interceptors.

Following the opposition, this section was removed from the Budget Law and was supposed to be incorporated into the Defense Budget Law which will be put to the vote only in a few months.

Last night, Democrats resubmitted the proposal, which would go to an unusual vote.
