Israel may purchase F-35s from Lockheed Martin

Israel is moving closer to buying F-35 joint strike fighters to add to its fleet of U.S.-made F-16 and F-15 fighter jets. Defense Minister Ehud Barak reportedly endorsed a plan Sunday to buy 20 of the next-generation combat jets from Lockheed Martin, although formal Israeli government approval won't come until September.
