‘Israel, Azerbaijan set to sign 1.6-billion-dollar arms deal’

Press TV – February 26, 2012

Israeli military officials say the Tel Aviv regime plans to sign a major arms deal worth USD 1.6 billion with Azerbaijan.

The officials said on Sunday Israel Aerospace Industries will sell “drones, anti-aircraft and missile defense systems worth USD 1.6 billion” to Azerbaijan.

Meanwhile, Israeli media said Angolan Finance Minister Carlos Alberto Lopes has traveled to Israel to sign a military agreement.

Reports say the Israeli-Angolan deal is worth about USD one billion.

The latest report on the Israeli military agreements comes a couple of days after Israeli officials said on February 16 the Tel Aviv regime had reached a “USD one billion preliminary” agreement with Italy to buy 30 Italian military training jets.

    • From the empirical evidence it would appear that Azerbaijan is Israel’s proxy, not that of the US. Note that it is Mossad that is running ops out of Azerbaijan, not the CIA.

      As usual Israel is profiting immensely from the resale of US and US financed military technology, a hidden form of tribute paid by America to the absolute advantage of its masters in Israel.
