Ya’alon: Details of US defense package for Israel to be completed ‘within weeks’

The US – Israel Memorandum of Understanding, which will set out the American defense package for Israel during the the next decade, will likely be complete "in the coming weeks," Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said on Monday.

He spoke onboard the USS Carney, an American destroyer taking place in the Juniper Corbra 2016 joint ballistic missile defense drill, at Haifa’s naval base.

During his visit to meet with US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter, in October 2015, the two "summarized the capabilities that will be available to Israel to safeguard our qualitative edge, which is so important, as well as our deterrence and contribution to regional stability."
