The cooperation between India and Israel has deepened under the current regime. This is reflected by the volume of arms import by India, along with growing security cooperation. The alarming news of the spyware, Pegasus, being used to snoop upon human rights defenders in India was another instance of the closeness of the Israeli State as well as defence and surveillance companies to India's State apparatus.
This report, a collaborative work between BDS India, People's Dispatch and NewsClick.in, gives an overview of the arms trade as well as security cooperation between India and Israel. It also shows how Israeli defence industry profits from the occupation, apartheid and colonialism against Palestinian people, and India's purchase of these arms—around 50% of the total weapons export of Israel—finances this illegal occupation. In turn, this collaboration fuels the militarisation of Kashmir as well as other parts of India, creating the logic of 'perpetual insecurity'.
