JNS.org – Israel exported $5.7 billion worth of defense products around the world in 2015, the Israeli Defense Ministry said on Wednesday.

“We are proud of the Israeli defense industry for its achievements in the global defense export market. After a challenging year, we succeeded, through joint and determined work, to maintain stability in the scope of signed contracts,” said Michael Ben-Baruch, head of the Israeli Defense Ministry’s “Sibat” department for defense exports.

The Defense Ministry signed dozens of contracts that helped stabilize “the scope of defense exports,” according to Sibat.
