The vote was to take place a day after 12 Security Council envoys visited Egypt’s part of the Rafah border crossing with Gaza, the only point where limited humanitarian aid and fuel has been able to enter. The United States did not send any representatives on the trip.

US President Joe Biden, who has faced intense criticism for his support of Israel’s response to the October 7 attacks, said at a White House ceremony for the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah on Monday that his commitment to Israel remains “unwavering” .

Biden said, “Friends, if there were no Israel, not a single Jew in the world would be safe.” He also noted his complicated relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whom he said was in a “difficult position.”

State Department spokesman Matthew Miller told reporters on Monday that Israel is not an exception to US policy that any country receiving its weapons must follow the laws of war, as Washington used the emergency procedure to seek congressional review. About 14,000 tank shells were sold to Israel without.

“We are monitoring everything that happens in this conflict,” Miller said. “We are engaged in negotiations with the Israeli government.”

As the war has intensified, how and where Israel uses weapons from the US has come under greater scrutiny, even though US officials say they do not impose conditions on military aid to Israel or some of it. There are no plans to consider stopping.
