Morocco, UAE, Bahrain eye Israeli missile security systems
UAE, Bahrain, and Morocco express interest in the Israeli Iron Dome, Arrow defense systems, and Green Pine radar system.
Israeli media reported that the United Arab Emirates, Morocco, and Bahrain have expressed interest in purchasing Israeli-made security systems, financial daily Globes reported Monday.
The report said that during Al-Naqab summit, the normalizing states expressed interest specifically in the Iron Dome and Arrow security systems and the Green Pine radar system, noting that this was not the first time the Gulf kingdoms have expressed interest in acquiring Israeli air security systems.
The Iron Dome is a mobile air defense missile system developed by RAFAEL, a company for advanced security systems. The system is designed to intercept short-range missiles and artillery shells.
It is worth noting that earlier the Israeli occupation failed to down Hassan UAV, which flew 70 km into occupied Palestine in over 40 minutes, the Israeli daily Calcalist reported.
"F-16 fighters, Apache helicopters, and the interceptor missiles from the Iron Dome all did not succeed in intercepting the Hassan UAV," the newspaper added.
Over the weekend, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced that his country was considering purchasing Israeli military weapons to "defend against a possible Russian strike."
"This is certainly one of the issues we are discussing, and for good reason," he told public broadcaster ARD when asked whether Germany might buy a system such as "Israel's" Iron Dome.
