Israeli officials are expressing their concerns regarding a $110 billion arms deal Trump just entered into with Saudi Arabia over the weekend.
Pointing out that Saudi Arabia is a “hostile country” to Israel, Yuval Steinitz, a senior cabinet member and confidant to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, said that the arms deal was “definitely something that should trouble us.”
Calling for the U.S. and Middle Eastern nations to come together in the fight to “stamp out extremism,” Trump signed the massive arms agreement n Riyadh on Saturday and Sunday.
The President is expected to lay the groundwork for a possible peace deal with the Palestinians on his two-day trip in Israel.
Trump has said that brokering a peace agreement between the Israelis and the Palestinians would be the “ultimate deal.” He has not provided any details about his plans, but senior adviser Jared Kushner and business lawyer Jason Greenblatt are in charge of the logistics.
The Palestinians attempted to push for an Israeli settlement freeze, but that was rejected by the Trump administration.
