Once again, the United States proves that it is a partner in the crimes committed against humanity by the Israeli occupation forces in Gaza.
A US defense official said on Thursday that Washington has allowed the Zionist entity to tap a local US arms stockpile in the past week to resupply it with grenades and mortar rounds.
The munitions were located inside the Zionist entity as part of a program managed by the US military and called War Reserves Stock Allies-Israel (WRSA-I), which stores munitions locally for US use that Israel can also access in emergency situations.
However, Tel Aviv did not site an emergency when it made its latest request about 10 days ago, the defense official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
The United States allowed Israel to access the strategic stockpile anyway to resupply itself with 40mm grenades and 120mm mortar rounds to deplete older stocks that would eventually need to be refreshed.
“They didn’t ask for it from there but we gave it to them so we could rotate our stocks,” the official said.
Additional Israeli requests for U.S.-manufactured ammunition were also being processed in the United States, the official said, without offering further details on quantities or costs of ammunition already supplied or requested.
Israeli embassy in Washington declined comment about the resupply request, including whether it asked for the ammunition because of its offensive in Gaza.

WW~Notes: In addition to every U.S. alphabet agency arming up – now we know where the rest of the ammunition stockpiles are going – straight to the illegal, zionist country of IS-RA-HELL. No wonder Americans can’t get ammunition for their own weapons. Unbelievable!
