The US Army will install $800m worth of military equipment in Israel and allow Israeli soldiers to use the US ordnance in the case of a military emergency.

Both nations signed a contract in December 2009 and are discussing on the type and amount of US weapons and ammunition that will be stored in Israel.

In 1990, the US stockpiled $100m worth of military equipment in Israel and has once again begun storing weapons within the territory of key allies, starting with South Korea.
