Israel is trying to strengthen its F-35 navy before Donald Trump leaves

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Kants has announced his intention to purchase a third battalion of US F-35 pirate fighters from the United States.

Kants said he hopes to end the deal before Jan. 20, before leaving the White House as outgoing US President Donald Trump.

“We have no doubt to strengthen our fleet with the F-35s, they currently have two battalions … we will buy a third battalion … this is what I asked the Americans,” local media quoted Kantz as saying.

The Trump administration has been in talks with Israel and Washington to discuss how to maintain its military dominance in the Middle East since approving the F-35 deal with the United Arab Emirates last year.
