DOHA/BERLIN - The United States is poised to sell $7 billion worth of Boeing Co fighter jets to Qatar and Kuwait after years of delays, and it may start notifying US lawmakers as early as next week, four US- and Gulf-based sources familiar with the matter told Reuters.

The sales had stalled amid concerns raised by Israel, Washington's closest Middle East ally, that equipment sent to Gulf Arab states would be used against it.

US officials have criticized Qatar for alleged ties to armed Islamist groups.
