US to Transfer Funds to Israel to Develop Iron Dome


A sub-committee of the American Senate approved on Tuesday night of an amendment of the 2015 national budget to include financial aid or roughly 621.6 million dollars, to be transferred to the Israeli government in order to further develop the Iron Dome missile defense system.

The legislation is expected to pass a vote in the Senate and join together with a similar proposal made in the House of Representatives.
