Are Israeli arms sales hiding behind “agriculture” in South Sudan?

New revelations about an Israeli general accused of arms trafficking cast further doubt on his claims that he is merely helping Africans with agricultural projects.

Last December, the US government imposed sanctions on Israel Ziv, a retired Israeli general whom it accuses of supplying weapons to fuel South Sudan’s civil war.

According to the US Treasury Department, Ziv used an agricultural company “as a cover for the sale of approximately $150 million worth of weapons to the government, including rifles, grenade launchers and shoulder-fired rockets.”

He also reportedly “planned to organize attacks by mercenaries on South Sudanese oil fields and infrastructure, in an effort to create a problem that only his company and affiliates could solve.”
