Israel’s defense ministry recently announced a historic agreement with Finland, a new NATO member, bolstering the latter’s defense capabilities.

The arms deal, valued at 317 million euros ($340 million USD), involves the sale of Israel’s cutting-edge David’s Sling air defense system.

Developed jointly by Israeli and American companies, this advanced system is designed to intercept a wide array of threats, including ballistic and cruise missiles, aircraft, and drones.

Described by the Israeli defense ministry as a “historic agreement,” the deal with Finland underscores the global demand for state-of-the-art defense technologies.

Finland, a newly minted NATO member, has swiftly moved to enhance its defense capabilities by opting for the Israeli system, which offers protection against aircraft, rockets, and missiles.
