Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has announced his opposition to the $10 billion in emergency U.S. aid to Israel proposed by President Joe Biden, citing concerns about the scale of Palestinian civilian deaths and displacement. The aid package has been met with mixed reactions from both sides of the aisle, with some arguing for its necessity and others raising concerns about potential misuse of the funds. Sanders has made it clear that he does not believe the U.S. should be appropriating such a large sum of money to the Netanyahu government as the Senate prepares to vote on the bill this week.
