Representatives of the Israeli and Cypriot Ministries of Defense signed signed multiple Government to Government (GTG) agreements between both countries in Nicosia yesterday (Wednesday), which include the sale of personal protective equipment and tactical carrying systems for the use of the Cypriot National Guard.

The agreements will provide integrated soldier systems developed by "Source", which include personal protective equipment, carrying equipment, and dynamic weight distribution (DWD), which will significantly improve soldier effectiveness. It was also agreed that specially designed carrying systems, which include the TPP duty belt, developed by "Marom Dolphin", would be provided.

The unique tactical carrying system assists in weight distribution and allows the quick and easy attachment of larger backpacks or pouches.

During the visit, Israel’s Head of SIBAT – the MoD’s international defense cooperation directorate – met with the Director General of the Ministry of Defense of Cyprus, Mr. Andreas Louka. The two discussed the strengthening of the defense ministries' security cooperation.

Head of SIBAT, Brig. Gen. (res.) Yair Kulas: “The agreements that were signed today reflect our close relations with Cyprus and indicate the joint goal to protect soldiers’ lives.”
