Israel Signs $400m Deal to Sell Greece Anti-Tank Spike Missiles
Israel signed a NIS 1.44 billion ($400 million) deal to sell Spike anti-tank missiles to Greece, Israel's Defense Ministry said on Monday, April 10, just days after reaching a similar-sized deal to provide air defenses to newly-inducted NATO member Finland.
The Spike is a guided anti-tank missile used by many EU and NATO countries produced by Israeli state-owned defense contractor Rafael.
"The Spike missiles will strengthen the Greek army's portfolio of operational tools and we expect further expansion through strategic collaborations in the near future," said Rafael CEO Yoav Har-Even.
Israel's defense minister said the agreement reinforces ties between the countries. (JPost / VFI News)
