Israeli security agencies have rejected selling the Iron Dome and David's Sling Weapons System to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Israel Hayom and Maariv reported military analysts revealing on Friday.

According to Maariv, military analyst Alon Ben David said that the Israeli security agencies rejected the potentiality to sell developed technologies to its new partners, referring to the Arab countries that have signed Abraham Accords.

Meanwhile, Yoav Limor told Israel Hayom that Israel is afraid that selling this technology to the UAE means secrets could be passed to a third-party state.

"Mossad, which paved the way for the normalisations, has begged the security agencies to stop looking at these countries as 'Arabs'," Ben David explained.

According to Ben David, the Israeli Defence Ministry has retracted its decision not to sell defence systems to the UAE: "It has sold cyber technology but refrained from selling air defence systems."

Therefore, the UAE was obliged to buy South Korean defence systems with Russian technologies.

Ben David estimated that Israel lost $4.5 billion after rejecting military deals with the UAE, suggesting that Israel propose its defence systems to the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

The entire offer came from them first shoving it in peoples faces online while in truth both KSA and UAE has no need for iron dome nor asked for it as they have much better air defense systems to begin with.. all the talk was from israel herself to promote iron dome because it failed miserably in last may which was bad promo for iron dome and israeli tech in general.. the whole ploy was self-promotion

I hope they prefer HISAR. If there is no F-35, there will be other options.

I don't think is necessary...

They have deep 12-15 layered AD systems.. Anyone who follows anything military related knows there is not much apetite for iron dome after its poor performances.. KSA has better ADS then israel..

The entire thing was self-promotion and israeli defense company promo... If anything UAE wants other Israeli systems that are in development such as the laser one and they were talking about doing collab in that project and may have already started

The HİSAR system has a loong long way to go before it reaches Iron Dome system capacity.

What the UAE needs is not the Iron Dome system. What she needs is to stay away from foreign policy adventures beyond her capacity.

If you throw a stone into a lake of shit (i.e. Iran), shit will splash on you! If you are not ready for this, you will not throw that stone.

The amount of racism. Just wow.... Stop looking at them like "Arabs". Why? Are Arabs not be trusted. Is it wrong to look at them like Arabs when they are actually Arabs?

If the stone comes to you then you take on them.. We don't EVEN mind a direct war with Iran.. They are vintage..

We have numbers, tech and organistation they will be in defensive posture immediately...

If we roll out we could rip the entire region apart

Interesting, because just yesterday Israel announced it would share its laser technology with "partners in the ME"

Israel is moving towards laser interception as opposed to rocket.

I dont believe a word.

Israel would sell the system even to Iran if they pay enough.

If they dont sell the system, it's because the buyer reject the selling.
