Saudis after buying Israeli Iron Dome missiles
Saudi Arabia has reportedly been seeking to purchase Israel’s so-called Iron Dome missile system amid reports that the two regimes have a plan to normalize their relations and unite against Iran.
Basler Zeitung, a Swiss German-language newspaper published in the city of Basel, quoted a “European weapons dealer in the Saudi capital of Riyadh” as saying on Monday that the Saudis were seeking to buy Israeli military equipment, including the so-called Trophy Active Protection System (APS).
The vehicle-mounted system is capable of intercepting and destroying incoming missiles and rockets with a shotgun-like blast.
According to the report, Saudi military experts had even examined the Israeli anti-missile system in the United Arab Emirates’ capital, Abu Dhabi.
