Israel Selling Sophistacted Rockets To South Korea To Protect Them From North Korea
Israel has sold South Korea 67 Spike rockets to defend the country against North Korea, which shelled its neighbor last year, killing four.
The sale advances Israel’s position as one of the world’s leading defense exporters, and Jerusalem is looking for more purchasers to replace losses suffered by worsening relations with Turkey. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced Tuesday it is suspending military trade with Israel. Rafael said the 15-mile rockets can hit hidden targets. The rockets will bolster South Koreas defenses, which rely largely on marines, self-propelled guns and other weapons on the islands.
