The Washington Post also reported that the White House was waiting for the House of Representatives approval, after Congress was officially notified of the proposed sale on May 5, citing three people familiar with the notification – a week before the current conflict with Hamas began.

The newspaper assured that while a large majority of Congress backs this position, a growing minority of Democrats, particularly in the House of Representatives, have raised concerns about supporting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and want to know more about the timing of the sale, as most of the international community rails against Israel´s attacks on Gaza.

‘Allowing this proposed sale of smart bombs to go through without putting pressure on Israel to agree to a ceasefire will only enable further carnage, after the Israeli military´s strikes have killed many civilians and ravaged the building that housed the Associated Press, a US company reporting on the facts in Gaza,¨ a Democratic lawmaker on the House Foreign Affairs Committee told the Post.

A spokesman for the House Foreign Affairs Committee confirmed to the Post that Congress was officially notified of the proposed sale on May 5, in which Boeing will provide Israel with the weapons.
