Israel could sign deal to buy three submarines from Germany

A deal to buy three submarines from Germany that is the subject of a possible state commission of inquiry could be signed in the coming week.
According to a report by Walla News, the ministerial committee that oversees defense procurement met on Sunday to discuss the deal for three Dolphin-class submarines that had initially been approved by Berlin in 2017.

The committee discussed the agreement as well as the budget regarding their purchase, the report said. The cost of the submarines is estimated to be €1.5 billion, a third of the cost being funded by the German government.
