The U.S. Defense Department is selling Israel jet fuel “to keep peace and security in the region,” the Pentagon said. Last Friday’s statement announcing the sale did not say when Israel requested the fuel, valued at up to $210 million. “The proposed sale of the JP-8 aviation fuel will enable Israel to maintain the operational capability of its aircraft inventory,” the Pentagon said in the notice of such sales that it’s required to give Congress, according to a Reuters report.
