US State Department deputy spokesperson Marie Harf confirmed that aid to Israel and other US allies would not be transferred on time.

“The State Department’s ability to provide military assistance to Israel and other allies in the time frame that is expected and customary could be hindered, depending on the length of the shutdown,” Harf told reporters.

Israel several months ago expressed concern over the possibility of a cut in the U.S. defense aid, during a previous crisis between Democrats and Republicans regarding the debt crisis. 

However, during his visit to Israel last March, Obama made clear that despite a budget crunch in Washington there would be no interruption to funding of Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system

The planned U.S. budget for the coming year, which was announced by President Barack Obama on Wednesday, maintains and even increases the American defense aid to Israel, Channel 10 News reported.

According to the numbers published, the United States will provide Israel with $3.4 billion in defense aid, a record number, according to Channel 10.

The budget proposal submitted to Congress also includes a request for the addition of approximately $220 million to finance the Iron Dome anti-missile defense system, a request that was not included in last year’s budget proposal, but was added later on.

Israel expressed concern last month over the possibility of a cut in the U.S. defense aid, after another crisis erupted between Democrats and Republicans regarding the debt crisis.
