The United States has threatened to cut off arms supplies to Israel if it conducts a ground operation in Rafah. The Biden administration made this announcement despite being a staunch supporter of Israel’s aggression policy in Gaza. After that, rumors of cold relations between the two countries spread.

In the meantime, the relationship between Israel and Hezbollah is gaining momentum again. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his cabinet on Sunday that the US arms supply problem will be resolved very soon.

Last May, US President Joe Biden announced that if Rafah is attacked, he will freeze some weapons shipments, including artillery shells. He also suspended a bomb shipment to Gaza for fear of civilian deaths. In response to such a decision of the United States, Netanyahu countered, “If necessary… we will stand alone.” If necessary, we will fight with our nails.

At the Israeli weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday, Netanyahu said that the situation with arms supply will “improve dramatically”.

“For weeks, we have been appealing to our American friends to speed up arms shipments,” he added. We have done this time and time again. We discussed it in senior ranks and emphatically at all levels. We got all kinds of explanations, but we didn’t get one (arms supply) thing.

Netanyahu is optimistic that the situation will improve soon. At the same time they will understand the shipment of necessary weapons from the United States.

On October 7, the Palestinian armed independence organization Hamas killed 1,200 people by attacking Israel. They took at least 252 hostages to Gaza. In response, Israel has been carrying out indiscriminate killings across Gaza for the past 8 months. According to the Hamas-run health ministry in Gaza, more than 37,500 people have been killed in Hamala so far. At least 86 thousand people were injured.
