After the 1982 war in Beirut, which was fought by the Palestinian revolution, the Arabs alerted the importance and feasibility of the Israeli (American-made) Phantoms and the Arabs’ rushing to America. MiGs) Russian.
The Arabs were interested in buying American-made Phantoms after they had proven successful in the extermination of the Palestinians in Lebanon, and the matter did not stop there. The Palestinian people continued, as a testing ground for American weapons, with Israeli hands. The Apache helicopter in the assassination of Palestinian resistance men and Israeli-made Apache helicopters killed dozens of resistance men and resistance leaders.
And here the bell rang again among the Arabs, meaning that the American Apache helicopters had proven their success, so an Arab Gulf state submitted to America a request to purchase 150 of them, after the success that these aircraft made in Gaza and the West Bank, meaning that the Arab countries were watching the success of the Apache helicopters, which are Zoned for wars; To destroy the various tanks and armor, and its missiles are cheap, meaning that the Apache missile has a price of 40 thousand dollars, and the Apache helicopters carry about 16 missiles of this type, which is called (Do Veer).
And after the outbreak of the Al-Aqsa Intifada also, Israel launched a very strong propaganda campaign for its Merkava tanks and said: It is the most fortified tank in the world, and is indestructible with any weapon. Based on this propaganda, Turkey has purchased 200 Israeli (Merkava) tanks, and after This confronted the Palestinian resistance men in Rafah, to this tank, with a high-explosive device, and it was completely destroyed, and the world saw this tank as scattered and smashed body parts in the Palestinian city of Rafah.
As soon as Turkey saw this scene, it made a decision, to withdraw from the deal, and decided not to buy this tank.
I believe that the Merkava tank met a black fate in the Gaza Strip or in southern Lebanon at the hands of (Hezbollah) forces when it carried out the tank massacre.
These experiences, carried out by Hamas, the Palestinian resistance in Gaza, and Hezbollah in Lebanon, were not a model for the Arabs to emulate. The Palestinian resistance in Gaza and Hezbollah, in Lebanon, that Arab victory is very possible if there is a will, but the only will the Arabs have is normalization with Israel, and technical, cultural, sports and military exchange.
And may God have mercy on the late Egyptian President Sadat, when he told the Secretary of State of America, Kissinger, I will be able to destroy the Israeli forces, which entered through the gap (the Duffer Swar) in Sinai within hours, and Kissinger told him that America will not allow you to do this, and to see The world on television screens American weapons, which are destructive on the battlefield, so Sadat withdrew from the plan to destroy the Israeli forces in the (Dvar Swar).
