IDF Equipment Sold via the Internet

Equipment from the Israel Defense Forces has been auctioned and sold on the eBay website, the largest online auction site.

Some Israeli sellers have auctioned off "Galil" and "Uzi" rifle sights, tank batteries, night-vision goggles, and tank turrets with adjustable scopes. The items were specifically described as Israeli Army equipment.

The IDF Spokesman said in response: "The IDF does not sell weapons or military equipment to private individuals. The unit that handles the sale of excess military equipment does not recognize the Web site, nor does it work with it. The IDF is not authorized to deal with civilians, so the matter must be handled by the police."
