Military aid for Israel removed from US bill

On Tuesday Democratic lawmakers removed $1 billion in military funding for Israel from legislation to fund the US government after objections from House of Representative's liberals, setting the stage for a potential fight over the matter later this year.
Some House Democrats objected to a provision in a stopgap spending bill to provide the additional funding so Israel can replenish its “Iron Dome” missile-defense system.
The US company Raytheon produces many Iron Dome components.
