shiitenews misile systemWashington and Tel-Aviv have discussed the development of the Israeli missile systems. Officials from the Defense Policy Advisory Group met in Tel Aviv this week to discuss the US support for an Israeli multi-layered missile system as well as other regional developments, UPI reported on Friday.

US Undersecretary of Defense for Policy James Miller and top Israeli Defense Ministry officials, including director-general Udi Shani and the head of the Diplomatic-Security Bureau, Amos Gilad, attended the meeting.

Israel wants to ensure that the US regularly budgets for the missile systems that the Israeli regime plans to purchase during the next years.

In recent months, the Obama administration has granted Israel financial aid to help it purchase more batteries for the Iron Dome missile system.

The US Congress also approved an aid package of about $1 billion to improve the Israeli missile systems.

This comes as the US government has been forced to make major cuts in its own military spending on account of its dire financial situation.

The contribution to the Israeli missile system, sourced from US taxpayer money, is in addition to the approximately $3 billion, which Washington grants Tel Aviv annually.

Israel is the top recipient of US military aid.
