Israel says it will purchase 14 additional next-generation F-35 fighter jets for approximately $3 billion.

Israel’s defense ministry said Sunday the deal adds to the fleet of 19 U.S-made jets it already purchased in 2010. The recent signing with Lockheed Martin Corp. includes an option for 17 more in the future. The first such planes are to arrive in Israel in late 2016.
