US Blocks Israel’s Sale of Aging F-16 Fighters to Croatia – Reports

The Croatian government announced in March it was in talks with Israel to buy a batch of old F-16 fighters from Israel to the tune of $485.6 million.
The US administration has stated it does not approve of Israel’s move to sell American-made F-16 fighter jets to Croatia, Channel 10 news reported quoting unnamed Israeli officials.

Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic and Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu announced the agreement in January and Croatia’s top defence body gave its response two months later.
