Israel reshuffled its top defense officials following U.S. complaints about Israeli arms-export practices. Israeli officials said Tuesday that Defense Ministry Director General Amos Yaron and the ministry’s security chief, Yehiel Horev, no longer would handle talks on arms exports with Washington, as Pentagon counterparts had accused them of being unreliable. The Defense Ministry had been under heavy U.S. pressure in recent months over exports to China and other Asian nations, amid charges that these contravene restrictions imposed by Washington.
