Joe Biden just dealt a big blow to Israel.

According to a new report, the Biden administration has put a hold on a shipment of US-manufactured ammo to Israel.

Fox News reported:

The Biden administration has put a hold on a shipment of U.S.-manufactured ammunition to Israel for the first time since the deadly Oct. 7 Hamas terror attack, according to a report.

Two Israeli officials told Axios that the weapons shipment was stopped last week, leaving officials within the Israeli government scrambling to understand why.

When asked about the report, a spokesperson for the White House National Security Council told Fox News Digital that it has supported Israel’s defense since the Oct. 7 attack.

“The United States has surged billions of dollars in security assistance to Israel since the October 7 attacks, passed the largest ever supplemental appropriation for emergency assistance to Israel, led an unprecedented coalition to defend Israel against Iranian attacks, and will continue to do what is necessary to ensure Israel can defend itself from the threats it faces,” the statement said.

This comes as Biden as Biden is facing growing criticism.

Newsmax reported:

However, Biden is facing criticism over his support of Israel’s actions in Gaza, and the administration asked in February that the Israeli military show proof that U.S.-made weapons are being used in accordance with international law. Israel signed a letter of its assurances in March.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has insisted several times in recent days that he plans to order the invasion of Rafah, even if Israel and Hamas can reach a deal for a cease-fire and the release of hostages Hamas is still holding in Gaza.

According to CNN, the pause is only for one shipment.

CNN reported:

The Biden administration paused a shipment of US-made ammunition to Israel, according to a source familiar with the matter, who did not disclose why the decision was made. The hold is not connected to a potential Israeli operation in Rafah and doesn’t affect other shipments moving forward, the source said.

Asked about the paused shipment, a National Security Council spokesperson cited ongoing security assistance to Israel.
