US House approves 'strategic partner' status for Israel

Published: 03.06.14, 01:32 / Israel News

The US House of Representatives approved a bill Wednesday that changes Israel's status into one of a "strategic partner" of the United States.


The new status will provide Israel with various security benefits, among them priority in receiving American weapons surpluses. Unlike the bill's original draft, the final version does not include automatic granting of tourist visa to the US to Israeli citizens.


The bill, that passed the House with a great majority, will now go to the Senate for a final confirmation. (Yitzhak Benhorin)
