The US military plans to double the amount of military equipment it has stockpiled in Israel under a recent agreement with Tel Aviv.
“The deal will double the value of military equipment kept on Israeli soil from 400 million to 800 million dollars,” a Pentagon spokesman, Major Shawn Turner told AFP.
He ruled out the notion that Iran’s nuclear issue was a major factor for the agreement and said that the US Congress initially authorized the expansion in 2007.
