Israel and Azerbaijan sign weapons deal | Al Akhbar English
Israel has signed a $1.6 billion deal to sell drones, anti-aircraft weapons, and missile defense systems to Azerbaijan, risking further conflict with Iran.
The deal will provide further evidence to Tehran that Baku is becoming a key ally for Israel in the region.
Israel has repeatedly threatened to attack Iran in recent weeks claiming it is seeking nuclear weapons, a claim Tehran has denied.
A report in The Times of London two weeks ago claimed that Baku was a key base for Israeli Mossad intelligence agents looking to spy on Iran.
