Jerusalem: Israel and Italy on Thursday signed a $750 million agreement to provide the Italian Air Force with two early warning aircraft.

The contract includes ground control stations and a "comprehensive logistical support package", Xinhua quoted the government-run Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) as saying.

Under an additional $182 million contract, the IAI will develop, manufacture and supply an observation satellite to Telespazio, a Rome-based provider of space systems services.
