Documents obtained by Haaretz, some of them originating in the huge Paradise Papers leak by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) and the German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung in 2017, reveal that the deal involved total payments of about 3 billion shekels (6 million according to the current exchange rate).The documents note that at least part of this sum was paid for in cash, and they name UAE leaders as being connected to one of the companies involved in the transaction.While the United States gathers such information in the region, it does not necessarily share all of it with the UAE, says Karasik.The need for information concerning, Libya, Yemen and Iran is what has led the Emirates to invest huge sums in the acquisition of reconnaissance aircraft, he notes.The fact that there are no diplomatic ties between Israel and the UAE and other Persian Gulf countries has not prevented the shared interests of the countries in the region to forge an extensive unofficial relationship, including in business, military and political spheres.In the case of Israel and the Gulf states, one main shared interest is their mutual enemy: Iran.

In a phone interview, Karasik explains that the reason for the Emirates’ investment in surveillance planes stems from a desire to develop the capability to gather intelligence independently.UAE as ‘end user’ An examination by Haaretz of hundreds of documents and email correspondence leaked from the Appleby law firm, in what became known as the Paradise Papers, reveals that the UAE’s military wanted to create a similar apparatus for surveillance aircraft, and the deal began to coalesce about a decade ago.The papers describe the complex structure established for acquiring and refitting the two planes: At the top is the so-called “end user” – the United Arab Emirates Armed Forces.The sight of the surveillance plane that recently began trial flights marks the last stages of a secret mega deal that began about a decade ago, and whose connection to Israel was unknown until now.A Haaretz investigation reveals that the person behind the supply of the planes is Israeli businessman and entrepreneur Matanya “Mati” Kochavi.
