During a meeting last week, Netanyahu reportedly expressed concerns over the recent decrease in US military support, requesting the reinstatement of US arms shipments to the levels seen immediately after the war began on October 7.

He argued that the reduction in aid benefits adversaries such as Iran and its proxies, including Hamas and Hezbollah, the Times of Israel reported.
