Back in June, the Palestinian SAMA News Agency revealed that U.S. arms, left behind during the Biden administration’s surrender to the Taliban, had made their way to Gaza. This revelation was reported three months before the horrendous Hamas attack on Israel over the weekend.

The aftermath of this attack has been devastating, leaving more than 250 Israelis and foreigners dead, over a thousand injured, and dozens of Israelis being captured and returned to Gaza.

In 2021, Joe Biden supplied the Taliban with over $80 billion worth of U.S. weapons and supplies during his administration’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Joe Biden supplied the Taliban and their Islamist allies with billions of dollars worth of U.S. weapons, armored vehicles, helicopters, ammunition, and piles of cash.

Instead of destroying the equipment before leaving Afghanistan, Joe Biden essentially handed over nearly $85 billion worth of U.S. military equipment to the Taliban.

Later, the Taliban released videos showcasing the arsenal of weapons given to them by Joe Biden, as well as a room filled with stacks of $100 bills that were left.

In June, a senior commander of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) told Newsweek that American weapons, abandoned in Afghanistan, have been observed in the hands of Palestinian factions operating within the Gaza Strip.

The IDF commander also mentioned the reported flow of arms from Ukraine to Iran.

The Middle East Monitor reported:

US arms left in Afghanistan have been smuggled to the Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip, Sama News Agency reported on Friday.

The local Palestinian news agency disclosed that Newsweek reported an unnamed senior Israeli military official confirming: “Some of the small weapons seized in Afghanistan had been spotted in the hands of Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip.”

The Israeli military official raised concerns about the “dangers” of sending advanced US and Western arms, sent to Ukraine, to: “Israel’s enemies in the region, including in Iran.”

According to Sama News Agency, Washington affirmed it would take “pre-emptive measures” to undermine moving arms to the Middle East.

The Israeli military official said that the paramilitary forces taking part in the Russian-Ukrainian war are monitoring the arms sent to Ukraine, such as the anti-missile system, Javelin.

He claimed that the military groups fighting in Russia are eager to move the arms they seized during the war to Iran due to the strong relations between the two countries, while the groups fighting in Ukraine seek to smuggle weapons for money.

Ironically, in 2007, then-Senator Joe Biden issued a cautionary message at the Madison County Historical Society in Winterset, Iowa, regarding the consequences of abandoning weapons in a hasty withdrawal from the Afghan War.

He cautioned, “And you leave those billions of dollars of weapons behind, I promise they’re going to be used against your grandchild and mine some day.”

And yet, that is precisely what he did in 2021.
