The report, written by Barbara Opall-Rome, the magazine's Israel correspondent, said that an agreement reached between Washington and Jerusalem last month will bring the value of the military gear to $800 million.

In September 2000 the government of Israel requested a possible sale of eight AH-64D Apache attack helicopters, 10 AN/APG-78 AH-64D Longbow FCR, configuration of 70 M272 Hellfire missile launchers to M299 Hellfire missile launchers, spare and repair parts, communications equipment, support equipment, tools and test sets, chaff dispensers, publications and technical documentation, personnel training and training equipment, US government and contractor technical support and other related elements of logistics support. The estimated cost was $509 million.
