Israel has submitted written assurances as required by the US State Department stating its use of American-supplied weapons is violating humanitarian laws in Gaza, Reuters reports, citing a US official

Israel had to submit written assurances before Sunday. By early May, the State Department will assess whether Israel's assurances are credible and report to the US Congress.

Israel was required to provide such assurances after US President Joe Biden issued a new US national security memorandum, stating that the sale of weapons to US allies would depend on a credible commitment from the state to act during wartime in accordance with international law while respecting human rights, reducing the risk of harm to civilian populations, and ensuring the possibility of humanitarian assistance.
