- Israel Denies Arms Exports Linked to Myanmar’s Treatment of Rohingya Minority – Herb Keinon
Israel’s Foreign Ministry on Monday vigorously denied reports linking Israeli arms sales to Myanmar with accusations of war crimes by the government against the Rohingya Muslim minority.
According to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Israel sold two patrol boats to Myanmar in 2015 and were the only weaponry Israel has sold to the country since 2007. Over 93% of Myanmar’s weapons imports come from China, Russia, and Belarus. (Jerusalem Post)
