The United States House of Representatives rejected a USD 17.6 billion military aid package to the Israeli Occupation. The vote was 250 to 180, but failed to pass as it needed a two-third majority for passage. The bill was Republican-led.

Republicans emphasized their refusal to approve new funds for Ukraine, considering that American taxpayers are not responsible for funding a long war with unknown results.

Meanwhile, the Israeli Occupation continues its aggression on the Gaza Strip for the 124th day. The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza reported that the number of Palestinian martyrs has reached 27,585 since Oct. 7, 2023, with 66,978 injuries resulting from the aggression.
