Israeli Aerospace Industries received $22 million this year in a deal with Morocco, Haaretz has learned. This comes amid foreign reports that Israel would sell Harop loitering munitions, known as kamikaze drones, to Morocco. IAI replied that it cannot comment on sales in Africa.

Last month the Defense News weekly published reports, based on sources in Morocco, that Israel intends to sell the country these drones as part of the normalization between the two countries. The Africa Intelligence website reported in September that Israel and Morocco are planning a joint venture of kamikaze drone manufacturing in Morocco.
