(Worthy News)-- The US State Department approved a massive sale of bombs and missiles worth $1.897 billion, pending final congressional authorization. The procurement package includes bunker buster munitions and its timing suggests the Americans are seeking to alleviate Israeli concerns over the developing deal with Iran, YNet News reported.
The colossal weapons deal is believed to also be intended to prevent vocal opposition by Israel and its allies to the commitments made by President Barack Obama at Camp David to arming Gulf states.
The weapons deal will also significantly increase the Israeli Air Force's precision munitions cache, with hundreds of GPS and laser-guided bombs and missiles included in the package. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.ynetnews.com/Ext/Comp/ArticleLayout/CdaArticlePrintPreview/0,2506,L-4659768,00.html" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
