Saudi Arabia Sought to Buy ’Israel’s’ Iron Dome System
The Swiss newspaper Basler Zeitung reported in early January that Saudi Arabia's government expressed interest in purchasing the apartheid entity's anti-missile Iron Dome system to stop attacks launched by Ansarullah revolutionaries in Yemen.
The prominent Basel-based daily wrote that a "European weapons dealer in the Saudi capital of Riyadh" said the Saudis are examining the purchase of "Israeli" military goods, including the "Israeli" Trophy Active Protection System [APS], which was developed by Rafael Advanced Systems and "Israel" Aerospace Industries' Elta Group.
The APS are installed on tanks to detect and neutralize incoming projectiles. Basler Zeitung wrote that Saudi military experts examined the "Israeli" military technology in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
But the Swiss paper reported that Saudi-"Israel" intelligence cooperation has registered "further progress," according to observers in Tel Aviv and Riyadh.
According to Middle East experts, the unifying security factor that has animated "Israel" and the kingdom to intensify military cooperation is the Iranian regime in the Middle East.
"Both want to hold back the regional ambitions of Iran," wrote Basler reporter Pierre Heumann, who is based in Tel-Aviv, of Saudi-"Israeli" military ties.
