Statement: US to deliver eight F-16 aircraft to Egypt

The United States will deliver eight F-16 Block 52 aircraft to Egypt within the next two days, the US embassy in Cairo said in a statement on Thursday.

The statement said the U.S. would deliver four more F-16s to Egypt this fall. In late March, US President Barack Obama lifted a hold on a supply of arms to Cairo, authorising deliveries of US weapons valued at over $1.3 billion.
