As Stand for Israel told you earlier today, even during the current restrictions in the Holy Land and worldwide, terrorism has not stopped. But neither have Israel’s American allies. Our friends at The Jerusalem Post report that Congress has passed American aid for Israel’s defense against terror attacks:

The US House of Representatives passed on Friday an aid package to Israel valued at $500 million designated for assistance to Israel in missile-defense, JNS reported.

The financial aid will mostly go towards the Iron Dome, David’s Sling and Arrow missile defense systems…

Apart from the missile defense systems, out of the total budget, $47.5 million will be allocated towards anti-tunnel technology cooperation, $4 million for new US-Israel collaboration on coronavirus research and $6 million for joint US-Israel cooperative programs in energy and water, according to JNS.

The bill will next head to the Senate, where it is expected to be amended.
