Israel looks with concern to a new Egyptian navy

UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The Israeli newspaper Maariv said that the Israeli military is very concerned about Egypt receiving two submarines from Germany because this would pose a serious challenge to the Israeli army in the future.

According to a report by the Israeli Army Radio on Tuesday morning, the new German submarines sold to Egypt will challenge the Israeli navy in the future and lead to an imbalance in the military balance.

Former Israeli Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi attacked Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, saying that this is very dangerous and harms Israel’s security and will frustrate Israeli superiority in the Red Sea.

He pointed out that all this is behind the back of the Israeli defense establishment, and will be set up a commission of inquiry into what appears to be the most serious corruption scandal in the history of the state, where the Israeli Prime Minister did not intervene to stop the submarine deal to Egypt.

Two years ago, two Egyptian submarines of the “Type 209” took over Egypt as part of a deal with Berlin that included four modern submarines.
