BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – The Qatari regime is raising billions of dollars to purchase Eurofighter Typhoon combat jets, the Reuters News Agency reported, citing two sources familiar with the deal.
According to the Reuters report, the deal to purchase these Typhoon combat jets will cost Qatar approximately $4 billion.
The financing for Qatar’s purchase of the British BAE Systems’ combat jets will be reportedly backed by export credit agencies.
“The new Typhoons will advance Qatar’s strategic efforts towards stability. The method and mechanism of payment has not been decided yet,” a Qatari official told Reuters.
This move by the Qatari regime comes just a few months after the Saudi King allegedly sent a letter to the French President Emmanuel Macron about preventing the small Gulf nation from purchasing the Russian S-400 systems.
