      Israel May Buy German Boats to Protect Natural-Gas Rigs


      Israel is considering buying boats from Germany to protect drilling platforms for natural gas off its Mediterranean coast. The purchase was one of the topics on Thursday's agenda when Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon met his counterpart, Ursula von der Leyen, in Berlin.

      The Yisrael Hayom daily reported, Friday, that Israel wants to acquire four boats to protect the rigs. The final decision from which country apparently has not been made.
