Israel orders tens of thousands of 155mm artillery shells from Elbit | Defense News - 4 Aug. 2023 |

Israel has ordered tens of thousands of 155mm artillery shells through a $60 million contract with Elbit Systems amid tension on the country's northern border.

The government and the company this week announced the deal for the M107-A3 projectiles for the Israel Defense Forces' artillery corps. The order follows a move by the U.S. to withdraw 300,000 shells stored in the country to transfer them to Ukraine, according to a January report in The New York Times. Israel had an agreement with the U.S. under which the former could use the ammunition for military campaigns.

Skipping congressional review, Blinken okays emergency sale of M107 shells to Israel | TOI |

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has approved the potential sale to Israel of M107 155mm projectiles and related equipment for $147.5 million and skipped its review by the Congress, the Pentagon says today.

Blinken determined that an emergency exists that requires the immediate sale to Israel, thereby waiving the congressional review requirements, according to the Pentagon.
