Report: Anti-Iran Arms for Israel, Saudi Arabia and UAE

Ahead of his arrival in Israel Sunday, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel of the United States will act to complete a $10 billion defense package for Israel, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, according to a Thursday evening report by the New York Times.

Under the deal, the U.S. would supply missiles, aircraft and troop transports, as the newspaper put it, "to counter any future threat from Iran."
