Israeli authorities announced on February 11 that they had uncovered a crime group that illegally traded in advanced weapon systems.

In a joint statement, Israeli authorities said that 20 citizens, some of whom are veterans of the defense industry, were interrogated for developing, manufacturing, testing and illegally selling loitering munitions for an unnamed country in Asia.

The suspects developed loitering munitions for the foreign country in secret. In return, they received money and other benefits.

Israel’s internal security service, Shin Bet, the Police’s International Crime Investigations Unit, the Director of Security of the Defense Establishment, and the State Attorney’s Office Economic Division all participated in the investigation.

The investigation uncovered information regarding the way the foreign country worked with the Israelis suspects. The information included technics used to blur any traces leading to the deals or the transfer of money.

“This affair illustrates the potential damage to the security of the state inherent in business deals between Israeli citizens and foreign elements in contravention of the law, including the concern that this technology could find its way to countries hostile to Israel,” the joint statement reads.

The rest of the investigation details are still classified. Israeli authorities may share more information soon. The case exposes serious security issues with Tel Aviv’s military sector.

The landless are by definition also stateless and have no loyalty to anyone, their creed is money and that is the only thing they are faithful to.

Freemon Sandlewould

So why not tell us for what country in Asia these weapons were destined???? hmmm?

Leif Oskar Zetterstrøm

Can be Yemen, Lebanon or Iran. Those countries belong to Asia.

Alekai Mordechai

Its Myanmar.

Arch Bungle

Because it’s China and the Americans don’t want to hear that their mistress in the middle east is also serving US IP to Xi Jin Ping.

Eyesore

What the hell is a ‘loitering’ missile? Designed for bars & nightclubs were people ‘hang-out’ or wat? Ahaha

Garga

Oh don’t worry about some hand-made tech with off-the-shelf components falling into the hands of countries hostile to your regime. You are gifting your latest military tech weekly to them.
Ever wondered what happens to the high percentage of your projectiles which don’t reach their targets? Here’s a hint: It gets dissected, redesigned, improved and mass produced. So, thank you?

I conducted such “test” myself couple of dozens of times starting from sugar and going up. Any buyers!? I even guarantee it doesn’t blow up in your faces if you don’t stand near the “test site”.

tzatz

Stupid story … if a country was interested in buying they’d fork out the ???

Even Myanmar has the fund’s necessary to do business … hello?

Garga … boasting like the braggart Iran slug that he is …. ?

‘I feel it coming’ … the Weeknd

John Wallace

dipshit. Have a nice day.

Garga

Teehee! Got on your nerves, have I? :))

Az tan lee leharegee’a et ha’atsabim shelekha! I might have just the thing… ;)

tzatz

Ver geharget

Garga

Oohh! It seems I’ve got on your nerves alright!

Are you man enough to do it yourself?

tzatz

The buzzing over yer head … won’t be mosquitoes …

It’s nothing personal … it’s your ilk that will be killed / dying … you’re meaningless … eh?

Probably one of the stans, maybe azerbajan, turkministan, kazakstan.

John Wallace

As they say ” Never trust a Jew ” especially if there is a penny or more involved.

Arch Bungle

The ‘unnamed’ Asian country is probably China collecting stuff to reverse engineer.
The jews are selling their stolen intellectual property to their future masters …

Alekai Mordechai

China makes these sort of drones themselves,

Its Myanmar who paid for these drones.

Arch Bungle

Could be. But why wouldn’t they get it from China or straight from the Thai army who are their buddies?

Could be north korea …

Could even be a terrorist group …

Alekai Mordechai

I cannot agree with the last sentence.

Very unlikely!

Arch Bungle

Here’s my reasoning:

1. If it was a state actor, the israeli ‘government’ would be aware of it, and would have protected the arms racket from being uncovered. governments communicate with each other above the level of criminal institutions.

2. Production of formal military weapons by illegal means is more likely to be for sale to other criminal institutions, rather than governments.

They will rot in jail for a long time, game over for them.

Alekai Mordechai

Not really! They will be bailed out.

<>

No Alekai. They are charged with hurting the national security of Israel (and our allies) and assisting a hostile country for money, they will get 20-25 years (after Shin bet will squeeze every bit of information from them) plus will be banned to leave Israel for life (same with Mordechi vanunu). We don’t play games and they knew the risks of betraying their country, now they are finished.

Ewan

What country? you don’t have a country to betray, only stolen land, fake Joo

Alekai Mordechai

The alleged Asian country isn’t hostile to israel.

A rudimentary munition won’t alter anyone’s security.

Alekai Mordechai

These drones were destined for Myanmar probably.

Ewan

LoL ZioPigs shooting themselves in the foot!
It’s no longer a habit , but a National Pasttime.

Hos Ng

Nationalise banks and corporations
Free palestine. Thats what the dancing child burners/snipers have instore… At best.
