This bill looked to send an added $26.38 billion in unconditioned military "aid" to Israel, including offensive weapons. Despite some Members of Congress talking about the importance of humanitarian assistance within the bill, only about 1/3 of the amount ($9.2 billion) was allocated to that. However, the bill then prohibs any funding for the UN agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) — which is most well-equipped to distribute aid in the area. Overall, this military "aid" serves to escalate the already horrific humanitarian situation.
