Save lives. Ceasefire Now!

WashingtonWin Without War Executive Director Sara Haghdoosti released the following statement responding to reports of a Biden administration decision to delay some weapons sales to Israel in reaction to its invasion of Rafah:

“Reports that the Biden administration is delaying the sale of at least two types of bombs to the Israeli government, in reaction to its disastrous conduct of the war in Gaza, are highly welcome. That conduct is again on international display in Rafah this week, where the Israeli military has begun an invasion that, as we at Win Without War have previously warned, could lead to further horrific war crimes. 

“Now that this news has leaked, senior administration officials must publicly confirm this policy shift. If President Biden is taking the overdue but necessary step to condition weapons sales in line with U.S. law and policy and to force changes in Israeli government strategy, he cannot leave his intentions open to miscommunication or spin from those, including Prime Minister Netanyahu, who are continuing this conflict for their own political benefit. The White House must leave no stone unturned in its effort to stop the Israeli government’s offensive on Rafah — the hundreds of thousands displaced there do not have more time.”
