Israel, Morocco sign security deal

On Wednesday Israel and Morocco signed a security agreement making it easier for Rabat to acquire high-tech exports from Israel’s defense industry, as the countries expand ties following their normalization deal last year.
The memorandum of understanding signed in Rabat by visiting Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz and Morocco’s minister in charge of defense administration, Abdellatif Loudiyi, was “unprecedented” for the Jewish state, an Israeli official said.
Israel has several security accords with allied nations, but the Morocco deal marks the first-of-its-kind agreement with a majority Arab nation, the official said, asking not to be named.
