Steinitz calls for discussion of Barak's F-35 jet deal

Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz on Sunday called for a Knesset discussion into a deal approved by Defense Minister Ehud Barak last week, under which Israel will buy 20 F-35 fighter jets from the US for an estimated $2.75 billion.
Steinitz said at a government meeting that a deal for such a large sum warrants a government discussion.
