New US-Israel 10-year military aid deal said to be ‘very close’

WASHINGTON — A new decade-long US defense package to Israel worth billions is "very close" to completion, a senior Israeli official in Washington told The Jerusalem Post on Monday.

Speaking after high-level defense meetings between the two governments, the official said that Israel hopes to wrap up negotiations as quickly as possible— and brushed off reports that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his aides are waiting until after the US presidential elections to close the deal.
