The Egyptian military denied on Tuesday claims that it had imported arms from Israel between 2008 and 2012.

The statement, posted on the official Facebook page of the Egyptian armed forces’ spokesperson, denied claims in Israeli newspaper Hareetz on Tuesday regarding arms deals between Israel and Egypt.

The spokesperson’s statement called on Egyptians not to trust the “false news” that is being published, stressing that all imports complied with existing arms procurement regulations.

On Tuesday, Hareetz claimed that over the last five years, Israel has exported military equipment, including hi-tech gear used in combat jets, to a number of Arab countries, according to a report released by the British government’s Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. The countries included Egypt, Algeria, Morocco, Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates.

Pakistan has also denied that its military purchased equipment from Israel.

Haaretz is not reliable
Do you trust Haaretz? It's not reliable. It's a leftist newspaper publishing lies very often. Do not trust it.
