Spain has refused to allow a ship transporting armaments to Israel to dock at a Spanish port, according to Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Albares.

The ship is apparently loaded with 27 tonnes of explosive material from India and may have avoided approaching Israel via the Red Sea, where Yemen’s Houthis rule.

“This is the first time we have done this because it is the first time we have detected a ship carrying a shipment of arms to Israel that wants to call at a Spanish port,” Albares told reporters

“This will be a consistent policy with any ship carrying arms to Israel that wants to call at Spanish ports. The foreign ministry will systematically reject such stopovers for one obvious reason. The Middle East does not need more weapons, it needs more peace,” he added.

India is the largest buyer of Israeli armaments, with some being utilized in problematic areas of eastern and central India, as well as disputed Kashmir.

Over the last ten years, India is said to have imported $2.9 billion in military equipment from Israel.

The sales include combat drones, missiles, radars, and other surveillance systems. India and Israel normalized diplomatic relations in 1992, but Tel Aviv’s military exports to New Delhi date back to the 1960s.

Israel supplied armaments to India during wars with China and Pakistan.

Elbit Systems, one of Israel’s leading defense corporations, decided in 2018 to collaborate with Indian conglomerate Adani Group to manufacture Hermes 900 drones at a plant in southern India, which will be exported back to Israel for its own usage.
