Netanyahu: Submarines needed to ensure Israel can destroy those threatening it

Israel’s military must be strong enough to be able to annihilate anyone who threatens to annihilate the Jewish state, and for that reason is arming itself with weapons such as the F-35 stealth fighters and submarines, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday.

Netanyahu’s comment, made during a ceremony at the graveside of David and Paula Ben-Gurion in Sde Boker making the 43th anniversary of the first prime minister’s death, came just a week before the first two F-35s are set to arrive, and some three weeks after conflict-of-interest allegations emerged involving Netanyahu’s personal lawyer, David Shimron, and the German firm contracted to build Israel new submarines.
