Morocco buys Israeli-designed weapons

Israel Aerospace Industries' "Heron" UAVThe Israeli newspaper Maariv reported on its website on Monday that the Israeli Military Industries, a government-owned weapons manufacturer, sold Morocco drones over the past year through a French company. Maariv attributed the information to Moroccan media outlets that report on the military in the North African country.

The Moroccan army took delivery of three Heron unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) at the end of last April, via the French company Dassault Aviation, which acted as the mediator in the deal. The Farmorocco website and Aeronautica Y Astronautica magazine published a document which confirms that Morocco bought the Israeli-designed aircraft. The army also possesses four US-made UAVs.
