Washington has asked Israel to review the details of a deal struck last week between Moscow and Jerusalem for the purchase of fifty drones, Israel Radio reported. The United States requested to know which elements are included in the drones, and whether Israel has conditioned the deal on Russia pledging not to sale the drones to a third party. The Foreign Ministry and Defense Ministry were at odds regarding fulfillment of the deal. The Defense Ministry specifically was against the deal, but the two ministries agreed that financially it would be best to find a formula that was palatable to both the Defense Ministry and the US, Israel Radio reported.
