’Israeli’ Iron Dome to Gulf States!
The Sky news reported on Wednesday that several Gulf nations are currently in negotiations to purchase the "Israeli"-made Iron Dome missile war system, Sky News reported.
The report said that member nations of the Gulf Cooperation Council want to defend themselves against a growing "Iranian arsenal of missiles."
A senior Gulf government official was quoted as saying that "If Netanyahu were not making less of a mess of things and was more like [Egypt's] Anwar Sadat, then we would be happy to buy the missiles straight from "Israel"."
The official was apparently referring to is the Gulf states' intention to buy the systems through American contractors who co-developed them, rather than directly from Tel Aviv.
The report also quotes Bahrain's Foreign Minister Khalid bin Mohammed al -Khalifa, who said during a visit to London that "The "Israelis" have their small Iron Dome. We'll have a much bigger one in the GCC."
The GCC includes Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain and Oman.
The Iron Dome was developed by the "Israeli" Rafael Advanced Systems, and the first system became operational in March 2011.
