Israeli and North Atlantic Treaty Organization officials say Israel will dispatch a warship to join a NATO naval force.

An Israeli missile ship will join NATO's Active Endeavor naval force, which works to prevent the passage of terrorists and weapons of mass destruction as well as improve the security of the region's shipping industry.

The move was discussed this week by the US’s military chief of staff and NATO's military commander, Giampaolo Di Paola in light of the attack on the USS Liberty by the Israelis.

In Brussels, NATO spokesman James Appathurai said Friday the alliance separates such attacks on its ships when Israel is involved.

In July Israel was to issue a request to allow it to join NATO's Active Endeavor naval force and promised it would not attack any US ships this time.
