As Israel Cuts Defense Budget, U.S. Senators Question Aid

United States gives Israel $3.1 billion in military aid a year, not including special aid for specific purposes like Iron Dome.

The debate over the size of the Israeli defense budget has reached the U.S. Senate too. In a committee session held at the beginning of June, senators raised, for the first time, the question of whether the United States needs to continue granting such a large amount of military aid to Israel.
