Zionist daily Haaretz admits that Israel is a major supplier of weapons and training to Junta in Myanmar who have engaged in a massive massacre against Muslims in Myanmar.

 

The daily said a head of the junta, Gen. Min Aung Hlaing, visited Israel in September 2015 on a “shopping trip” of Israeli military manufacturers.

 

His delegation met with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin as well as military officials including the army’s chief of staff. The delegation visited military bases and defense contractors Elbit Systems and Elta Systems, it added.

 

"The head of the Defense Ministry’s International Defense Cooperation Directorate — better known by its Hebrew acronym, SIBAT — is Michel Ben-Baruch, who went to Myanmar in the summer of 2015," the daily reported.

 

In the course of the low-profile visit, Haaretz said, the heads of the junta disclosed that they purchased Super Dvora patrol boats from Israel, and there was talk of additional purchases.

 

In August 2016, images were posted on the website of TAR Ideal Concepts, an Israeli company that specializes in providing military training and equipment, showing training with Israeli-made Corner Shot rifles, along with the statement that Myanmar had begun operational use of the weapons, Haaretz reported.

 

The website said the company was headed by former Israel Police Commissioner Shlomo Aharonishki. Currently the site makes no specific reference to Myanmar, referring only more generally to Asia.
