German Economy Ministry approves sale of submarine to Israel

1 Min Read

BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany's Economy Ministry said on Wednesday that Germany's security council, which examines arms exports to non-NATO states, had approved the export of a submarine to Israel.

Israel already operates German-built submarines, manufactured by ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems. The vessels are considered by Israel to be a vanguard against foes like Iran.
