AIPAC Applauds Administration and Congress for Approving Additional Iron Dome Funds

AIPAC commends the Obama Administration and Congress for quickly approving critical additional funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system. Demonstrating its strong bipartisan solidarity with Israel, Congress approved $225 million in additional funding, acting expeditiously on a request from the Israeli government that was submitted by the Administration. 

Since the conflict began, Hamas has fired over 3,000 rockets against the Jewish state. By intercepting these rockets, the Iron Dome system has saved countless lives and prevented untold damage.
