(Worthy News) – The U.S. government this week signed off on the sale of 300 Patriot missiles and related support equipment to Saudi Arabia in a deal valued at more than $3 billion, defense officials said Tuesday.

The Pentagon said the sale will replenish the “dwindling stock” of Saudi Arabia’s supply of Patriot Guidance Enhanced Missile-Tactical Ballistic Missiles (GEM-T) and improve its capability to meet current and future threats.

“These missiles are used to defend the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s borders against persistent Houthi cross-border unmanned aerial system and ballistic missiles attacks on civilian sites and critical infrastructure,” the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) said in a statement. “These attacks threaten the well-being of Saudi, international, and U.S. citizens (approximately 70,000) residing in the Kingdom.” [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
