The U.S. House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly Thursday, with Israel providing $ 1 billion to support its Iron Dome missile defense system, a majority of progressive Democrats opposed after two days of debate.

The move was passed by 9 to 420 votes (eight Democrats and one Republican). With this referendum, the move was sent to the Senate, where the leaders have not yet decided when to vote.

Grants were first included in legislation to address the upcoming government strike and possible debt crisis in October. But objections from some Democrats led to the removal of the item from the spending bill.

“The passage of this bill reflects the great unity in Congress regarding the security of Israel,” House Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi told parliament.
