Alwaght- US Senate quietly passed a bill on Wednesday paving the way for a $3.8 billion military aid to Israel, despite regime's blatant violations of international law and Palestinians' rights.

According to MintPress News, in an event largely overlooked by the US media, the Senate passed a bill on Wednesday that would provide Israel with $3.3 billion in military aid along with over $500 million for missile defense over the course of the next year. 

The number would amount to $23,000 per year for every family in Israel, according to a Friday report by Minnesota-based news website.

American senators passed a bill titled the “United States-Israel Security Assistance Authorization Act of 2018,” on Wednesday, paving the way for its likely approval by the US House of Representatives within the week.

The amount is a result of a memorandum of understanding on security assistance between Washington and Tel Aviv.

The funding involves an additional $550 million aid for Israeli missile systems and $1 billion for US weapons stockpiles in Israel.

US military aid to Israel has skyrocketed over the past several years while the regime’s forces are engaged in blatant human rights violations against Palestinians in Gaza and elsewhere.

Hailed as a “great friend to the Jewish people” by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, US President Donald Trump has boosted ties with Israel.

Over 157 Palestinians are killed and some 15,000 others injured since the outbreak of the protests on March 30.

The US president finally broke with decades of US policy by announcing that the embassy in Israel would be relocated from Tel Aviv to the holy city of Jerusalem al-Quds.

Trump made the move despite foreign leaders’ warnings that it could stoke further tensions in the region.

The Israeli regime, meanwhile, continues its atrocities and expansionist policies in the region.
