Lockheed Martin Israel, the local division of the US aerospace giant that manufactures the F-35, says it is evaluating the impact of a Dutch court decision ruling that The Netherlands must stop delivering parts for the fighter jets used by Israel.

“We’re working closely with the F-35 Joint Program Office to evaluate the impacts the recent Dutch court ruling will have on our supply chain,” the company says.

“We stand ready to support the US government and allies as needed,” it adds.
