he US might sell Israel special arms and munitions to aid in the case of a strike in Iran, an unnamed senior military source told Israel’s Army Radio Tuesday night.
According to the report, although the two countries did not agree on specific red lines regarding Iran’s nuclear program during meetings in Washington, the US understands Israel’s position and is considering selling it weapons that could be used to attack Iranian nuclear facilities, including bunker-busting bombs and fueling planes.
The Iranian issue was the central topic of conversation at AIPAC’s annual Policy Conference in Washington.
US President Barack Obama said he would prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear bomb, and US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said the US would use force if diplomacy fails. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told a crowd of over 10,000 people that Israel has the right to defend itself, by itself.
