Last year Spain banned two export operations of defense material to Israel, specifically, ten guns for the development of rifles and 17 firing ranges for tanks, under the criterion of “peacekeeping, security and regional stability”. This is stated in the report ‘Spanish statistics on the export of defense material, other material and dual-use products and technologies’ for the year 2017, to which Europa Press had access.
