Germany has agreed to sell Israel two battleships in exchange for one billion euros, AFP reported on Saturday, citing a report in German daily Bild.


According to the report, the torpedo-laden destroyers are intended to provide protection for Israel's natural gas installations.


Bild reported that the head of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's National Security Council, Yossi Cohen, visited Berlin last week.


AFP reported that while a German government spokeswoman confirmed Cohen's visit, she declined to comment on the nature of his business in Berlin.
