The US-Israeli ‘partnership’ never changes.
The Biden administration, which is formally less supportive towards Tel Aviv than the previous one, is going to provide Israel with $9bn in weapons.
On January 8, the Israeli ministerial committee a $9bn arms deal with the United States under which Tel Aviv will receive F-35 and F-16 fighters, new troop-carrying helicopters, thousands of bombs and munitions as well as four Boeing KC-46 aerial refueling tankers.
The Israeli approval of the deal was delayed for a notable tame as there is a minor problem. While the funding for all these weapons will come from the $3.8 billion of military aid that the United States gives to Israel each year, the payment will have to come up front. Thus, at least formally, Tel Aviv will have to spend some money of this efforts. This situation is for sure unacceptable for the ‘only democracy in the Middle East’.
Nonetheless, it seems that the contradictions have been solved and Israeli media reported that US banks will provide major loans to Israel if it’s need some to use US-donated money to obtain US weapons.
