BEIJING, Aug. 16 (Xinhuanet) — Israel’s Defense Minister Ehud Barak has approved in principle the purchase of 20 U.S.-built radar-evading stealth fighters.

The jets are worth a total of 2.75 billion U.S. dollars.

The F-35 warplanes are expected to be delivered between 2015 to 2017. Israeli leaders suggest the planes would not be used for any preventive action, but rather to bolster the country’s deterrence.
