In a statement made by the White House, it was reported that $ 14.3 billion of the additional funding of 105 billion dollars was requested within the scope of assistance to Israel.

It was noted that $4 billion of this amount will be used to reinforce the Iron Dome and David's Sling air and missile defense systems, and $1.2 billion will be transferred for the development of the Iron Beam air defense system.

In the statement, it was stated that the majority of the additional funding requested from Congress, amounting to 61 billion dollars, is within the scope of US military aid to Ukraine.

According to the statement, some of the additional funding will be used to increase security measures on the US-Mexico border, and the Biden administration has requested over $9 billion for humanitarian aid, including the crisis in the Gaza Strip.

US President Biden had announced that he would submit an "emergency budget" request to Congress to support partners, including Israel and Ukraine, within the framework of US national security needs.

It remains unclear when the funding request will be approved, as the Republican majority in the House of Representatives, the lower house of the US Congress, has failed to elect a new president.

The House of Representatives failed to elect a new speaker in the third vote held today after Speaker Kevin McCarhty was removed from office at the beginning of the month.
