U.S. shipped 989 munitions containers to Israel week before Gaza invasion

Australian Herald 10th April, 2009

In the dying days of the Bush administration, and a week before Israel launched an aerial bombing campaign, followed by a land invasion of the Gaza Strip, the U.S. military shipped 989 containers of munitions to Israel.

Each container was 20-feet long with a total estimated net weight of 14,000 tonnes. The shipment reportedly reached Israel last month at Ashod, 40 kiometres north of Gaza. The huge arsenal of munitions will replenish those expended in the Gaza War.

According to Amnesty International in the UK, the shipment included white phosphorous.

Unless my math is faulty, we shipped to Apartheid Israel about 14 MILLION tons of high quality weapons for their pre-planned Gaza invasion.

Or about nine pounds of WP, ammo and explosives for each Gazan.
