Israel and Cyprus signed a defense export agreement in which the Israeli Ministry of Defense will provide the Cypriot Ministry of Defense with personal protective and carrying systems for soldiers developed by the Israeli Shoresh company and a carrying system for soldiers developed by the Marom Dolphin company.
Head of Israel’s Directorate for International Defense Cooperation (SIBAT) Brig. Gen. (Res.) Yair Kulas signed on Wednesday in the Ministry of Defense in Nicosia the GTG agreement for the sale of personal protective equipment and carrying systems to the Cypriot army, in the presence of Cypriot Minister of Defense Charalambos Petrides, and the Chief of Staff of the Cyprus Army Demokritos Zervakis.
The agreements will provide integrative systems, developed by Shoresh, which include personal protective equipment, carrying equipment and a Dynamic Weight Distribution (DWD) system, and a unique carrying system developed by Ma’arom Dolphin, which includes TPP combats belts that aid in weight distribution and allow quick and easy attachment for carrying heavy weights.
Defense Minister Benny Gantz welcomed the agreement that “reiterates the depth of our relationship with our friend Cyprus. We will continue to strengthen security relations and cooperation for the security of the two countries and to maintain stability throughout the region.”
Kulas added that the signed agreements “express the good relations with Cyprus and indicate the common need regarding the importance of protecting the lives of soldiers.”
