Biden administration ‘ignoring US laws’ on arms transfers to Israel: Ex-senior official

Josh Paul resigned from a senior position at the US State Department back in October to protest the US position vis-à-vis Israel’s war in Gaza. In an interview with FRANCE 24, he said he did so because of the scale and scope of the conflict. “It was clear (…) that this would be far beyond anything we had seen before,” he declared. Paul also said that the Biden administration “is ignoring American laws that apply to arms transfers and to security assistance” and noted a “lack of appetite” at the State Department to address Israeli human rights violations.
