Report: Israel asked the United States for $10 billion in aid

The New York Times quoted informed sources as saying that Israel had asked the United States for emergency aid worth $10 billion.
According to the report, the White House is drafting a bill to provide aid to Israel, which would link it to the aid that the Biden administration seeks to provide to Ukraine as well.

This could make it difficult to get approval for the package in the House of Representatives, where Republicans have a majority and some oppose aid to Kiev, but the bill will reportedly include money to fortify the southern border between the United States and Mexico, a major demand made by Republicans.
