State Department Refutes Report Of Unauthorized Arms Deliveries To Israel

(Washington, DC) -- The State Department refutes a report that says the White House was "caught off guard" when it learned Israel was getting supplies of ammunition from the Pentagon without its approval.
State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf commented on a report in the "Wall Street Journal" that said since the administration found out about the deliveries, it has tightened control of the arms transfers to Israel. Harf said during a press briefing that the U.S. is reviewing arms deliveries and says to her knowledge, there were no unauthorized arms transfers. She said U.S. policy on providing unprecedented military support to Israel has not changed.
