Israel Defence & Security Report Q1 2014 - New Report Available

New Defense research report from Business Monitor International is now available from Fast Market Research

[USPRwire, Wed Dec 18 2013] BMI's Q114 Israel Defence & Security report examines recent defence and procurement developments. A number of recent events have occurred which will affect these.

The election in Iran of President Hassan Rouhani, and a corresponding significant easing of tensions with the United States, mean that the likelihood of the US supporting any strike against the Islamic Republic's covert nuclear weapons programme is looking less likely. Rouhani has moved quickly to strike a conciliatory tone with Israel and with other Jews around the world by disavowing anti-Semitic comments made by his predecessor.

Talks between Israel and the Palestinians commenced on 29th July 2013 and have proceeded in fits and starts, making little progress. As of 25th September 2013, both Israel and the Palestinians agreed to intensify their negotiations under US auspices. In late October 2013, Israel freed a batch of 26 Palestinian prisoners in a bid to restart the negotiations which the Palestinian delegation withdrew from on 14th November 2013.

In September 2013, it was reported that the Israeli government was preparing to commence the privatisation of defence firm IMI. This will see up to one third of its workforce (around 950 employees) retire and several of its sites in Israel being sold.

In terms of defence procurement, exports and imports, in October 2013 Elbit Systems was selected to provide helmets to equip the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning-II Joint Strike Fighter. Meanwhile, Israel Aircraft Industries has been awarded a contract to supply three fast patrol boats to the Israeli Navy.
