About half a billion dollars in US military construction for Israel followed its 1998 Wye River Memorandum with Palestine. Another half billion went for Israeli security measures. Palestine got smaller amounts.

Both sides agreed to terms. At issue was finalizing the September 1995 Interim Agreement on the West Bank and Gaza Strip (Oslo II).

Israel reneged like it always does. Palestine was blamed. Netanyahu was prime minister at the time.

Pincus omitted those inconvenient facts. Israeli construction was done in the Negev. IDF forces got three new bases. Supposedly it was to facilitate redeploying forces from West Bank locations. 

Israel's Nevatim air base was built at the time. It's one of Israel's largest. The Corps of Engineers constructed extensive facilities. Other ones were built earlier.

They included "underground hangers for Israeli fighter-bombers, facilities for handling nuclear weapons".command centers, training bases, intelligence facilities and simulators."

Washington provides Israel more aid than all other nations combined. It's very generous with US tax dollars for its imperial ally.

The Corps maintains three facilities in Israel. In the past two years, it built Nevatim hangers. They cost $30 million.

It also "supervised a $20 million project to build maintenance shops, hangers, and headquarters to support Israel's large Eitan" UAV program.

Site 911 will be built elsewhere. It appears to be one of the Corps' largest projects. Three underground floors will be roughly 41,000 feet each.

Two others below them will be smaller. They'll store equipment. Security is high. So is secrecy. Non-Israeli workers will only come from America, "Canada, Western Europe countries, Poland, Moldavia, Thailand, Philippines, Venezuela, Romania and China."

Palestinians are excluded. According to security considerations, the site "shall have one gate only for both entering and exiting the site."

"No exit or entrance to the site shall be allowed during work hours except for supply trucks."

Guards will only be Israeli citizens with air force experience. "The collection of information of any type whatsoever related to base activities is prohibited."

Israeli architectural firm Ada Karmi-Melamede is involved. Eventual site employees will be provided amenities.
