JERUSALEM  — The government officially approved plans to buy American-made F-35 stealth fighter jets on Thursday.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's office said that the purchase would significantly strengthen Israel's military, but gave no other details.

Israel is planning on buying 20 of the warplanes for nearly $3 billion and will begin receiving the jets by 2015.
