Joe Biden's administration has approved the sale of precision weapons to Israel in the amount of $ 735 million, the Washington Post reported.

According to the publication, the decision worried some Democrats in the House of Representatives who are involved in discussions about the US government's support for the Israeli government, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Congress was officially notified of the sale on May 5, almost a week before the escalation of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict began.

Calling for an immediate ceasefire, the US administration said Israel has a right to defend itself against Hamas, a position previously supported by a majority in Congress. But a new generation of House Democrats wants to know more about the new sale and its timing, offering to use it as leverage.
