Qatar is Buying 72 F-15 or $21B Worth of Fighter Jets From the US


Days after US Donald Trump accused them of allegedly supporting terrorism, Qatar has signed a $12 billion contract to buy F-15 war jets from the United States according to the reports by the defense ministry.   Apparently, the contract was signed in a meeting between US Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and Qatari Minister of State for Defense Affairs Khalid al-Attiyah according to the source as reported by Reuters. Bloomberg news said that the deal is set for a total of 36 fighter jets  produced by a Boeing subsidiary Mc Donnell Douglas.   An unnamed Qatari official was quoted as saying the US-Qatar relationships are "deep-rooted".   In November, the US approved the possible sale of 72 units F-15QA war jets to Qatar amounting to $21.1 billion. The deal come only weeks after a $110 billion arms deal was made between US and saudi Arabia, which the White House describes as the biggest in history.  Trump earlier made a remark that Qatar has “historically been a funder of terrorism at a very high level.” It was after the neighboring GCC countries severed ties with Doha.  As Kuwait tries to bridge the row between qatar and concerned Arab brothers, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan strongly back Qatar, dubbing the Saudi-led measures "inhumane and against Islamic values".  Qatar, an important exporter of natural gas, is a known American ally in the Middle East. It also hosts the largest US military base in the region. In fact, amid the growing tension between Qatar and other gulf states,  two combat US Navy ships have sailed into Doha for joint drills with the Qatari navy according to the report.
