US offers to help Israel and Arab states strengthen air defenses against Iran

The Pentagon is reportedly working with Israel and several Arab states to integrate air defenses to thwart threats from Iran, as part of bipartisan legislation proposed to Congress on Thursday.

The bill is the latest attempt by the United States to boost defense cooperation between Israel and the wider Middle East after normalizing relations with several Arab states. Once hostile to Israel, these governments have moved closer to the majority Jewish state. The proposal is intended to spur them to better coordinate in the region, congressional aides said.
