Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu erred in rejecting US President Barack Obama’s offer of a 10-year defense aid package, the former head of Military Intelligence told Army Radio on Tuesday.
Israel wants $4b. to $4.5b. in aid in a new agreement to replace the current memorandum of understanding, or MOU, which expires in 2018.
US officials have given lower target figures of about $3.7b. They hope for a new agreement before Obama leaves office in January.
