The US government has said Israel may have used American-supplied weapons in breach of international humanitarian law in its war in Gaza. The State Department says it is "reasonable to assess" that US-supplied arms were used in ways "inconsistent" with Israel's obligations. The report, ordered by the White House, was submitted to Congress on Friday. It says the US government doesn't have "complete information" to verify its assessment. However it says that given Israel's significant reliance on US-made weapons "it is reasonable to assess" that they had been used since October 7 "in instances inconsistent with its IHL obligations or with established best practices for mitigating civilian harm".
