Long-delayed Ukraine, Israel aid bill could hit US House floor soon

16/4/2024 5:53
        U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Mike Johnson is expected to decide this week on how he will handle President Joe Biden's long-delayed request for billions of dollars in security assistance for Ukraine, Israel and the Indo-Pacific.
        
        More than two months after it passed the Senate, the push for the $95 billion aid package, which includes $14 billion for Israel as well as $60 billion for Ukraine, gained new urgency after Iran's weekend missile and drone attack on Israel despite fierce opposition in the deeply divided Congress.
        
        Israel faced growing pressure from allies on Monday to show restraint and avoid an escalation of conflict in the Middle East as it considered how to respond.
        Johnson has so far declined to allow the Republican-controlled House to vote on the measure that the Senate passed with 70% bipartisan support in February.
