It was not possible to obtain immediate comment from the Moroccan authorities, regarding what was reported by the channel, until 13:30 (GMT).

The channel quoted an (unnamed) Israeli army spokesman as saying: “We are cooperating with a different group of foreign countries and armies while conducting exercises, high-level meetings, and joint research.”

However, the spokesman added, “We will not discuss cooperation with a specific country,” without details of the military training, even if Morocco is a participant in it.

In 2020, Morocco signed an agreement with Israel to resume relations between them, to join 3 other Arab countries that signed in the same year agreements to normalize relations with Tel Aviv, namely the UAE, Bahrain, and Sudan.

Out of 22 Arab countries, 6 have declared official relations with Israel, namely Egypt, Jordan, the UAE, Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco.
