(Worthy News) – A group of bipartisan US lawmakers from both houses of Congress introduced legislation on Thursday aimed at integrating the air defense systems of Israel and neighboring Arab states.
Motivations include bolstering defense cooperation between Israel and Arab nations and thwarting threats from Iran and its proxies, the Haaretz newspaper reported.
The Deterring Enemy Forces and Enabling National Defense Act would authorize the US Defense Department to cooperate with Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, and the entire Gulf Cooperation Council and requires the Pentagon to submit a strategy for an integrated air and missile defense system within six months.
An integrated defense system would protect relevant countries from “cruise and ballistic missiles, manned and unmanned aerial systems, and rocket attacks from Iran,” according to the wording of the bill. [ Source: Israel Hayom (Read More…) ]
