Israel’s Iron Dome to Get $225 Million Under U.S. Bill

The U.S. House and Senate approved $225 million in emergency spending for Israel’s Iron Dome missile-defense system, sending a message of support for Israel as fighting surged in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.

House and Senate passage yesterday cleared the measure for President Barack Obama’s signature, as lawmakers worked to finish legislative business before leaving Washington for a five-week recess. The Senate passed the measure by voice vote, and the House approved it 395 to 8.
