The Israeli Defense Ministry is increasing the number of countries for which arms exporters will not be required to receive a special license for marketing non-classified weaponry and defense equipment.
(Haaretz/Al Ray) Until recently, there were 39 countries for which Israeli arms exporters were exempted from having a license from the Defense Export Control Agency to sell weapons, security equipment systems or defense-related information that was defined as not classified. The recent decision by the (Defense) Ministry and its director general, Maj. Gen. (res.) Dan Harel, significantly increases the number of countries for which no DECA license is required.
Ministry officials did not say which countries are on the list of those exempt from the requirement, and explained that the purpose of the decision is to increase and encourage security exports from the State of Israel.
