According to reports, the Balakot strikes were carried out by a dozen Mirage-2000 aircraft equipped with Israeli-built SPICE-2000 bombs that can hit with pinpoint precision. Israeli envoy to India didn't confirm if SPICE-2000 bombs were used for Balakot strikes. Envoy said it doesn't matter who's in power, India's relationship with Israel won't change

Amid many questions raised on whether India really hit Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terror camps in Pakistan's Balakot, the Israeli envoy to India said that their bombs have a record precision rate.

While Ambassador Ron Malka said that he did not know which bombs were used for the Balakot strikes, he endorsed the technology and the making of Spice Bombs.

Speaking to India Today at an event to celebrate the 71st Independence Day of Israel, to a question on SPICE (Smart Precise Impact and Cost Effective) bombs that were used to target terror camps in Pakistan, the envoy said, "Your assumptions are yours on which kind of bombs were used. I cannot say anything about which bombs were used but we make good bombs with great precision".

According to reports, the strikes were carried out by a dozen Mirage-2000 aircraft equipped with Israeli-built SPICE-2000 bombs that can hit with pinpoint precision.

The envoy also emphasised that the world needs to unite to fight terrorism. "Terrorism is emerging in many parts of the world. It is a problem of the world. The world should be united and fight it together. We can defeat it. Israel and India have strong ties and friendship values. We share our experience and know-how with India so it can defend itself," Malka said on Wednesday.

Security and strategic cooperation with India is high on Israel's agenda. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was recently re-elected, was to visit India but due to scheduling issues and campaigning in India for the 2019 general elections, the visit got cancelled.

However, the envoy assured that India and Israel share a relationship that is beyond governments and that there would be a visit in the near future.

When asked about the Lok Sabha polls and change in government he said, "Relationship between the two countries is between nations so as I see it, it does not matter who wins or who is in power. I do not see any reason why it should change. It is a relationship between the two nations. The relationship is growing and growing, no matter who is in power."

"Hopefully, there will be a prime ministerial visit in the near future," Malka added.

Even as there has been a real increase in the momentum of cooperation between the two nations, Israel wants India to do more in the agricultural sector. The envoy, who is also an economist, said that the population and economy will stabilise in years to come so there is no need to fight.

"India knows exactly what it needs to do. There are some decisions that need to be taken by the current leadership. The leadership needs to take some brave decisions for the long term. We unleashed the private sector in a regulated manner which is now an engine for growth. India is on the right track," said the Israeli envoy.
