Israel will request $1 billion from the United States to resupply the Iron Dome system.
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham made the statement in a commentary.
“This week, the Pentagon will receive a request for a billion dollars from the Secretary of Defense to replenish and upgrade the Iron Dome,” Graham said.
He said the Iron Dome system performed “incredibly well” during the 11-day bombardment of Israel by Hamas terrorists.
The senator promised to do everything in his power to ensure that Israel receives the requested funding.
