ISRAEL REPORTS DROP IN ARMS SALES BUT EXPORTS OF SPY TECH NEARLY DOUBLE

Middle East Eye on 22 June reported that Israel’s controversial surveillance technology accounted for around 14% of 2019 total arms sales, almost double the figure from 2018. Israel’s defence exports amounted to $7.2 billion in 2019, down from $7.5 billion in 2018 and $9.2 billion in 2017. At 17%, radar and electronic warfare systems made up the largest chunk of exports, followed by rockets and air-defence systems at 15%. Exports of drones  amounted to about 8% of Israel’s arms sales, while cyber and intelligence systems were 7%.
