WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Congressman Brian Mast (FL-21) released the following statement in response to reports that President Biden had halted the transfer of ammunition to Israel. 

“Joe Biden is sanctioning our biggest ally in all but name. The White House is doing this while actively working to rebuild the infrastructure in Gaza that Hamas will use to launch another attack on Israel,” said Congressman Mast. “Making Israel a sitting duck for Hamas and Iran — who both have also shown a willingness to attack U.S. troops — is not in the interests of America’s national security.” 

Congressman Mast chairs the Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Oversight and Accountability.
