 US decides to sell F-35 fighter jets to UAE


  • The United States has decided to sell F-35 fighter jets to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

  • According to the Arab News Agency, the White House informed Congress about the sale of the aircraft to the United Arab Emirates, in which the White House told the head of the Congressional Foreign Affairs Committee that the United States would sell 50 F-35 aircraft to the United Arab Emirates.
  • Elliott Engel, a Democratic congressman who heads the Foreign Affairs Committee, questioned the US government's decision, saying the move would change the military balance in the Gulf and affect Israel's military superiority.
  • The head of the Foreign Affairs Committee called on Congress to take a closer look at the sale of aircraft as the F-35 is a game changer at the spy level and the sale of aircraft in a hurry is not in anyone's interest. Ensure that Israel's standard military superiority is maintained.
