As the conflict between Israel and Hamas rages on for the third day, with over 900 already reported dead and thousands wounded, a shocking report from Newsweek resurfaced indicating that American weapons seized by the Taliban are now being used by Palestinian terrorist cells.
The report came from an Israeli commander on the heels of attacks against the Biden administration for releasing $6 billion in funds to the Iranian government, which has repeatedly backed Hamas, using them as a proxy against Israel.
🚨BREAKING: Marjorie Taylor Greene is calling for the United States to work with Israel to track the serial numbers on any U.S. weapons that might have been used by Hamas against Israel to find out if they came from Afghanistan, Iran or Ukraine.

“A claim in a news report that American weapons seized in Afghanistan have ended up in the hands of Palestinian groups operating in the Gaza Strip has taken on renewed significance after Hamas, a Palestinian terrorist group, launched an attack on Israel on Saturday.
According to a Newsweek report published in June, an Israeli commander said some of the US. small arms seized in Afghanistan have already been observed in the hands of Palestinian groups operating in the Gaza Strip.
The report began recirculating on social media, amid accusations that the Biden administration funded Hamas’s terrorist attack on Israel by releasing $6 billion in frozen funds to Iran, the main backer of Hamas.”Advertisement
In addition to American weapons from Afghanistan falling into the hands of Hamas, the Israeli commander also voiced concerns that the deluge of weapons being sent to Ukraine could end up being filtered to the Gaza Strip.
The commander voiced concerns that weapons captured by the Russians could be transferred to Iran, who would go on to send them to Hamas and Hezbollah.
The commander’s concerns were in part verified after a Russian Il-76 transport aircraft was spotted dropping off nearly $100 million in cargo in Tehran, including western weapons such as US-made Javelins.
