The Jerusalem Post reports: “Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant and German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius signed on Thursday a deal for the sale of the Arrow-3 long range anti-ballistic missile system.
Gallant said that the sale of the system is the biggest agreement to date between the two states, and showed the level of their partnership.
