U.S. $38B military aid package to Israel sends a message

UStoday
WASHINGTON — The United States agreed Wednesday to provide Israel a record $38 billion in new military aid over the next decade. The pact is a sign of
the two nations' close alliance despite major differences over Iran's nuclear program and other policies.
The agreement, which equates to $3.8 billion a year, is the largest bilateral military aid package ever and includes $5 billion for missile defense, additional F-35 joint strike fighters and increased mobility for its ground forces.
The aid package “is just the most recent reflection of my steadfast commitment to the security of the state of Israel,” President Obama said in a statement.
