On October 6 US state department proposed the sale of weapons and ammunition’s to Saudi Arabia which are concluded to be the part of the $110 Billion deal made earlier this year in May when US president Donald Trump visited the Middle East. Saudi Arabia has concerns regarding the threats of Ballistic missile in the region. Iran’s Ballistic missile tests in the area are seen as potential terrorist attacks so the Saudi Arabia kingdom has signed a deal to make itself capable of facing such situation in the future.

According to a press release from the Pentagon’s defence Security Corporate Agency, the recent sale included 44 THAAD anti-missile defence system, 360 interceptor missiles, 7 THAAD radars, 16 mobile fire control and communication stations at an estimated price of $15 billion. The sale also included 4 trucks, generators, electrical power units, communication equipment, test and training equipment, tools and personal training equipment. The THAAD system, abbreviated as terminal high altitude area defence is exo-atmospheric and has hit-to-kill capability which is very useful and ace equipment to counterfeit the ballistic missiles.

It is one of the most capable defensive missile battery in the US arsenal and has advanced radar system which can defend incoming mission attacks successfully. The weapons are supplied by Lockheed Martin and Raytheon. The US defence department has stated that the sale of weapons to Saudi Arabia would help provide a balance to the unstable environment around the Gulf region and also help the US to firm its allied grip and enlarge the forces in the region. Also the Saudi Arabia Monarch, King Salman visited President Vladimir Putin in Moscow last week regarding Oil and Syria.

There the King entered into a preliminary agreement to purchase Russia’s S-400 surface-to-air missile defence system. The sale is however not confirmed yet as the US congress has 30 days to object. The department also stated that this sale will boost up the US foreign policies and national security objectives as the country will help secure a friendly country.

The US had also supplied THAAD earlier to South Korea to defend against North Korea’ short-missiles. This however angered China which stated it is interfering. THAAD’s have also been supplied to other gulf countries like Qatar and UAE in response to the rising tension in the Middle East region. Many are stating this move by the US president as an act against global terrorism but also are concluding this as a move attempted by Trump to score political points at home as he has claimed that this will increase many thousand jobs for the countrymen.
