Israel Intends to Purchase Latest Models of Jet Planes from France

Israel will purchase the latest model Mystere jet planes from France, Shimon Peress, director general of the Ministry of Defense, revealed here last night at a meeting devoted to the sale of internal defense bonds.

(In Washington it was reported today that plans are being advanced for the early shipment of U.S. military jet planes to Iraq under the grant-in-aid program. It was also reported that the U.S. is considering giving Saudi Arabia 90 jet fighter planes and $3,000,000 in cash in exchange for a five-year renewal of the Dhahran air-base lease.)
