(Dunya News) – British journalist Robert Fisk while unveiling the alliance between Israel and India has revealed that the Israeli-made Rafael Spice-2000 “smart bombs” were used by the Indian air force in its strike inside Pakistan.
“Like many Israeli boasts of hitting similar targets, the Indian adventure into Pakistan might owe more to the imagination than military success,” says Fisk in his article.
He says that India’s ruling party and Israel has a very strong alliance against Muslims.
“For months, Israel has been assiduously lining itself up alongside India’s nationalist BJP government in an unspoken – and politically dangerous – “anti-Islamist” coalition, an unofficial, unacknowledged alliance, while India itself has now become the largest weapons market for the Israeli arms trade,” asserted Fisk.
“The “300-400 terrorists” supposedly eliminated by the Israeli-manufactured and Israeli-supplied GPS-guided bombs may turn out to be little more than rocks and trees,” he taunted.
“India was Israel’s largest arms client in 2017, paying £530m for Israeli air defence, radar systems and ammunition, including air-to-ground missiles – most of them tested during Israel’s military offensives against Palestinians and targets in Syria. Israel itself is trying to explain away its continued sales of tanks, weapons and boats to the Myanmar military dictatorship,” elaborates the journalist in the article.
Robert Fisk also disclosed that at least 45 Indian commandos are given training in Israel.
