U.S. to Sell Israel Munitions

(November 1999)


The United States government has approved the sale of 700 Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) bombs to the Israeli Air Force for $45 million. This marks the first time that Israel has been allowed to purchase the JDAM. The bombs, which are produced by Boeing in St. Louis, are used by specially-mounted F-15 and F-16 fighter planes and are considered the most advanced of their type in the world.
