The House voted to provide Israel with $1 billion dollars for its Iron Dome missile defense system.
After progressive Democrats removed the funding from the stopgap spending bills, the standalone bill was brought up to the floor.
Thursday’s funding vote was passed with 420-9 votes.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., spoke against the bill, saying it’s “absurd and unjustifiable,” according to The Associated Press. Tlaib is the daughter of Palestinian immigrant parents.
Others voted in favor of the bill. They said it will only provide money for Israel’s defense.
“Let me repeat: This funding, as the bill language clearly states, is limited to a system that is entirely defensive,” House Appropriations Chair Rosa DeLauro said, according to Politico.
The bill now heads to the Senate for a vote.
