More than two months after the United Arab Emirates signed a US-brokered agreement at the White house to normalize relations with the Tel Aviv regime, Abu Dhabi's crown prince and de facto ruler of the Persian Gulf country is now interested in purchasing Israeli Iron Dome missile system.


Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan has expressed his great enthusiasm to acquire the system, which is developed by Rafael Advanced Defense Systems and Israel Aerospace Industries, Arabic-language New al-Khalij news website reported on Thursday.

The report added that bin Zayed believes the Pentagon will support the UAE’s efforts to procure the military hardware, given the fact that the Raytheon Company is the major partner in co-production of key components for the Iron Dome's Tamir intercepting missile.

New al-Khalij went on to say that Emirati military officials consider Iron Dome missile system to be very effective and successful, but added that one of its downsides is that its launchers are all located at the same site.

Therefore, any sale of Iron Dome to the UAE will be preceded by inquiries about its technical specifications and capabilities, and a review will also be conducted to ensure that the system meets the Persian Gulf state’s needs.

The report highlighted that the UAE is currently examining the I-Dome version of the Iron Dome system, which apparently has greater maneuverability and manufacturer officials intend to integrate a battlefield management system (BMS) into it.

UAE launches tourist visas for Israelis

Moreover, the UAE launched tourist visas for Israelis on Thursday, in the latest move following the normalization of ties between Abu Dhabi and Tel Aviv.

The Emirati Foreign Ministry “announced the activation of tourist entry visas through airlines and travel and tourism offices for Israeli passport holders,” the UAE’s official WAM news agency reported.

The UAE and Israel are hoping for rapid dividends from the US-brokered normalization deal signed in September as their economies are hard hit by the coronavirus pandemic.

They have already signed treaties on direct flights and visa-free travel, along with accords on investment protection, science and technology.

On September 15, United States President Donald Trump hosted a White House ceremony, where Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu signed normalization agreements with Emirati Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Bahrain’s Foreign Minister Abdullatif al-Zayani.

All you need is a few missiles to hit the desalination plants.

UAE can spend trillions but it won't save them.

Iron Dome had a 85% success rate against bottle rockets from Gaza.

This must be pain full for those who day dream about Iranian missiles hitting Arab houses and Mecca.
:lol:LMAO, Are you joking? this is one of the funniest comments ever! and at the same time sad comment (for ummaists of today). And you're promoting this as big happy news? :lol:

Why is this so funny? when analyzing your words, you're saying and from how I see it with the current pace of the process of zionism-hugging by wahabis, that devout hajis like you will feel as if they're crypto-jews while doing the hajj :lol: being "protected" by a "Huge Iron Kippah system" waving above their (zionist friendly or lets just frankly say zionist) holy land.

I thought Ababil birds would protect the holy places? what's happening? what's the next project? Zionist settlers checking passports of hajis to prevent Iranian infiltrators visiting mecca and medina? :lol: that would be so painfull for us Iranians (causing stomach pain from laughing among many Iranians)

It is not about saving just bolstering air-defense systems it has other capable systems but just keep adding

This is their baby. They might sell it but certainly not in the configuration they use it !
Iron dome is outdated nowadays they are working on a new one. I think they are more then happy to sell it but not sure if the UAE wants it until it does inspection it's performance may not be so good which means Iron dome could have been more media then performance all along. It can perform but according to rumors not as much as others example like current UAE defense systems but Israel is definitely open to selling

I don't think Israelis will sell to UAE.
You don't think right?
Wait till you see it.

A new block of the Iron dome is already underway that will incorporate Laser defense against missiles,.... Ensuring high probability of protection. Don't Panic, its already a reality.

Lol @poverty stricken. You're ashamed or insecure of showing the flag of your (post-ottoman/post-british) country. :lol: Ssurely in long term and even maybe today your country will be worse off than Iran and that without being sanctioned!

From 193 countries in the world, Iran ranks 26th (GDP Nominal), 25th (GDP PPP) and differs in HDI ranking only 6 places from US puppet Kuwait (oil swimmingpool). Iran is the 5th in the world by calculated resource value (2019), it tells you something about the future of Iran.

Ad to that that Iran at the moment is the most sanctioned country ever on earth and history of earth, having 6 times more sanctions than North Korea and having experienced a huge 8 year war till 32 years ago.

anyone with smallest military knowledge can tell you Iron Dome is useless in UAE there potential enemies are too far from them to hit them with unguided rackets there potential enemies have highly maneuverable short range ballistic missiles armed with decoy warheads which Iron Dome can't intercept because that is not its job that the job for Patriot and THAAD systems and their Israeli counterparts, but still its good short range air defense system , for those who do not know why, i will say this, its like hitting a ballistic missile with Tor-M2 or Pantsir air defense systems.

Iron Dome had a 85% success rate against bottle rockets from Gaza.
* The overwhelming majority or rockets shot by Iron Dome are supersonic Grad rockets.
* U can fire several Iron Dome interceptors at same target increasing probability (for example in Tel Aviv area Iron Dome showed 100% success against Fajar-5 rockets).
* Iron Dome can work against drones and cruise missiles.
* Iron Dome interceptors are many times cheaper than all other counterparts.

It is sad yes. The Iranian government claiming to be Muslims when they actually back groups that are directing their attacks towards Muslim civilians and MECCA

So when Arab nations start buying defense system from Israel because of Iran and its backed groups in Yemen , don't get pissed off at them , rather at your own government
