DOD releases arms to Israel, official says | Upsetment | Scoop.it

The Department of Defense has released arms to Israel from a weapons stockpile maintained within the borders of the close U.S. ally, a defense official confirmed Wednesday."

 

"...the United States elected to supply 120mm mortar shells and 40mm grenades from the stockpile because the arms were approaching the date they would require replacement, he said. Israel regularly buys such ammunition when the United States rotates its stocks, he said, and the United States would meanwhile send new ammunition to refresh the stockpile."
