The State Department has approved Israel’s request to buy 990M gallons of military aviation petroleum via a potential $3B foreign military sale transaction.

Israel asked to purchase JP-8 fuel for the country’s operational aircraft maintenance efforts along with diesel fuel and unleaded gas for ground vehicles, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said Monday.

DSCA does not expect the proposed sale to have adverse effects on U.S. defense readiness.

The Defense Logistics Agency’s energy organization will conduct a competitive bid process for U.S. vendors interested in supplying the petroleum products through the FMS deal.
