Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is trying to convince his right-wing coalition to support a 90-day settlement construction freeze in exchange for security incentives.
The Israeli security cabinet would have to give final approval. A vote could come as early as Wednesday.
According to sources familiar with the negotiations, the U.S would provide Israel with 20 F-35 fighter jets in exchange for a construction freeze. Israel was already planning to purchase the jets, but the U.S. has now agreed to provide them free of charge. A $3 billion gift that Israeli tax payers won't have to finance.
