Israel Receives More Than Half of US Global Military Aid


Israel is looking to boost the amount of money the U.S. State Department sends it every year for military aid to as much as $5 billion, a number that would give it not only the largest chunk of U.S. defense aid money, but also more than triple the amount any other country receives in total aid from the U.S.

For the past two years, the U.S. has given Israel $3.1 billion in what it calls “foreign military financing.”
