On the same day as Israeli forces carried out a hugely controversial and horrific killing of seven international aid workers for food charity World Central Kitchen in Gaza, the Biden administration approved yet another transfer of thousands of bombs to Israel, new reporting reveals, undermining U.S. officials’ public statements lamenting the workers’ killings.

The Washington Post reported Thursday that sources within the Biden administration say officials rubber stamped the bomb sale on Monday. A State Department official told the outlet that it was approved before the aid worker killing, but officials have not reversed the approval, despite having the ability to do so at any time before the shipment is delivered.

The sale reportedly includes several thousand bombs, including over 1,000 MK-82 500-pound bombs, over 1,000 small-diameter bombs, and fuses for MK-80 bombs, a category of “general purpose” bombs that can include munitions of up to 2,000 pounds.
