The Biden administration is planning a $320 million transfer of precision bombs for Israel, a major weapons deal that comes amid heightened concerns in Congress and among some U.S. officials about the rising civilian death toll during the Israeli military campaign in Gaza.
The administration sent formal notification on Oct. 31 to congressional leaders of the planned transfer of Spice Family Gliding Bomb Assemblies, a type of precision guided weapon fired by warplanes, according to correspondence viewed by The Wall Street Journal.
