The United States Central Command (CENTCOM) has announced sending over forty thousand food rations to residents of northern Gaza while simultaneously, international media reported on America’s approval for transferring billions of dollars worth of bombs and fighter jets to Israel.

Reuters, citing informed sources, reported that the United States has recently granted licenses for the transfer of billions of dollars worth of bombs and fighter jets to Israel.

According to the report, these new arms packages include over 1,800 MK-84 2,000-pound bombs and 50,000 MK-82 500-pound bombs.

However, Reuters emphasized that the White House and the Israeli Embassy in Washington refrained from commenting on this agreement.

While in recent days, the Biden administration has criticized Israel’s continued attacks on Gaza, one of Israel’s longtime allies in military aid has been the United States.

Furthermore, CENTCOM stated in a release that two C-17 aircraft of the United States Air Force, in an operation involving specialist troops in airlift assistance, delivered over 46,000 food rations to tens of thousands of residents in northern Gaza on Friday, March 29th.

Previously, the United States sent thousands of food rations to non-combatants residing in Gaza to alleviate hunger.

Notably, this decision by the United States to transfer military arms to Israel comes after the visit of Yair Lapid, the Israeli Defense Minister, to Washington.

This comes amidst ongoing criticism faced by the United States for its support of the Netanyahu government.

Reports indicate that in the recent Israeli attacks on the Gaza Strip, 62 Palestinians have lost their lives, bringing the total death toll since the start of the attacks in October to 32,552 Palestinians killed and 74,980 others injured.
