JNS.org Germany has reportedly agreed to sell Israel two advanced guided missile navy destroyers as part of a 1 billion euro ($1.3 billion) defense pact between the countries.

According to the German daily Bild, Yossi Cohen, the head of the Israeli Prime Minister’s National Security Council, visited Berlin last week to finalize the deal. A German government spokesman confirmed the visit, but did not describe the nature of the trip.

Israel will apparently use the torpedo-equipped destroyers to protect its vast offshore natural gas fields.
