Gaza, MINA – The Israeli occupation government and Morocco concluded an arms deal, according to which Morocco bought “Harop” suicide drones, and the deal amounted to $22 million.

On Tuesday, the Hebrew newspaper Haaretz quoted sources in the Israeli Aerospace Industries as saying that it “cannot discuss deals in Africa.”

The Vienna-based Defense News website quoted Moroccan sources as saying that this deal comes within the framework of normalizing relations with Israel.

And last September, the Africa Intelligence website reported that the Israeli occupation and Morocco are planning to set up a joint factory for suicide drones in Morocco.

The “Harop” suicide plane, produced by the Israeli Aerospace Industries, has a length of 2.5 meters and a wingspan of three meters.
