    Several liberal US Democratic legislators have backed a resolution against the sale of $735m in arms to Israel, saying the Biden administration should not be “rubber-stamping” weapons transfers to the Israeli government as it bombs the Gaza Strip.

    On Wednesday, Congresswoman Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez led a group of Democratic Party legislators in introducing a resolution to block the recently announced sale of precision-guided munitions to Israel.

    Pressure is mounting from within Biden’s party for a more robust response to end the bombardment.
