In Israel, German Leader Gives Nod For Saudi Arms Deal; ‘Ready To Sell Eurofighter Jets’

Germany is ready to allow sales of Eurofighter jets to Saudi Arabia. The German Foreign Minister made the big announcement during her Israel visit. This is a big U-turn by Berlin, which has been blocking arms deals with Saudi Arabia for years. The Eurofighter jet has been jointly built by Germany, Britain, Italy, and Spain. Each country has the power to veto any deal related to Eurofighter jets. The exact reason behind Germany’s change of heart is not clear as of now. Experts believe the West could use the deal to pressure Saudi Arabia to act against the Houthis.
