Iran threat: Israel and USA sign armaments deal worth billions

According to its own statements, Israel has agreed on an arms deal worth billions with the United States. It has signed an agreement with the US government to buy twelve Lockheed Martin CH-53K helicopters and two Boeing KC-46 tankers, the Department of Defense said on Friday. The value is estimated at around 2.7 billion euros. The first helicopters are expected in 2026.

According to a report in the New York Times, Israel recently asked the US to accelerate the delivery of tanker planes. These could be decisive for an attack on the nuclear facilities of the Israeli archenemy Iran, it said. However, the US has said it is unlikely that the first of the aircraft will be ready before the end of 2024.
