Berlin: Germany will sell two destroyers to Israel for one billion euros (USD 1.3 billion), a report said.
The torpedo-carrying war vessels will be used to protect Israeli pipelines, the Bild daily reported today 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.
