US Senate panel OKs sale of helicopters to Iraq

Published: 01.27.14, 22:33 / Israel News

A US congressional panel has signed off on the sale of Apache helicopters to Iraq as it battles the growing threat from al-Qaida militants within its borders.

 

Sen. Bob Menendez, the Democratic chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and other lawmakers had been blocking the long-term transfer of the helicopters over concerns that the Iraqi government could use them for internal crackdowns instead of national defense. (AP)
