Germany to sell two destroyers to Israel

Germany will sell two destroyers to Israel for one billion euros ($1.3 billion), the Bild daily reported Saturday.

The torpedo-carrying war vessels will be used to protect Israeli pipelines, the paper said, without citing a source.

The report said Israel's national security adviser, Yossi Cohen, was in Berlin last week.

A German government spokeswoman reached by AFP confirmed Cohen's visit but declined to elaborate.
