According to a source, there are doubts in the State Department about Israel’s compliance with international law in the use of US weapons

The State Department is divided over whether Israel is using American-provided weapons in accordance with international law as Secretary of State Antony Blinken faces a deadline to make a determination to Congress. These assurances were required under a national security memorandum issued by President Biden. Human rights groups accuse Israel of war crimes during the Gaza conflict, and some US officials are concerned about complicity. The State Department is preparing a report for Congress on the issue. Biden recently signed an aid package for Israel, but concerns remain about Israel’s adherence to human rights laws. The State Department’s annual report raised concerns about war crimes in the conflict between Hamas and Israel. Defense Secretary Austin stated there is no evidence of genocide by Israel, a claim Blinken has called “meritless.”
