Israel to Help Honduras Boost Military Capabilities

While so much of Israel's technology and military prowess comes from necessity - to protect herself and her people while existing in a region rife with enemies - the Jewish state is more than happy to share its innovations and experience with others. The Jerusalem Post's Julie Steigerwald reports on the agreement Israel has made with Honduras that will help strengthen the small Central American nation's military:

Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández has announced that he will present his nation's Congress with the deal signed with Israel that has the capability of strengthening the country's armed forces to a level that Honduras "likely never would have obtained" otherwise...

"I am presenting the National Congress with a very important agreement that is crucial for the growth of the Honduran nation - an agreement with the State of Israel," he was quoted as saying. "This will provide the basis of fortifying our armed forces with capabilities that we likely never would have obtained."

He added that the Honduran military will go about this by "using technology from the latest generation" of Israeli military innovation to boost its abilities...

The Honduran president made the announcement of the pact with Israel on Sunday during a military demonstration marking the 52-year anniversary of the establishment of the country's Second Airborne Infantry Battalion.
