The Israeli daily Maariv claims that Tel Aviv has authorised Washington to store “enormous quantities” of weaponry in bases in Israel.
The newspaper claims that Israeli Defence Minister Benyamin Ben Eliezer has given the go-ahead for the first consignments to be delivered in the coming days and states that a US official, who remained anonymous, has confirmed the news, saying that the consignments are part of a strategic cooperation agreement with Israel.
Under this agreement, Israel places its bases at the disposal of the USA and shares logistic and intelligence information.
Tens of officers and soldiers from the US Armed Forces are currently at Israeli bases to receive the consignments of weapons, which according to one official, quoted by the newspaper, are “enormous, since Israel is the only country we can trust”.
