The German Federal Security Council has approved the delivery of the fifth of six promised submarines to Israel, tools and service parts for small-caliber ammunition, sonar systems to India and 336 trucks to Algeria, Süddeutsche Zeitung Daily wrote on Friday, citing the Council's report to the parliamentary Economics Committee.

ThyssenKrupp had handed over the fourth submarine last September.

At its meeting, the Council, which takes its decisions on the basis of Germany's Military Weapons Control Act and the Export Act, also consented to the export of six sonar systems to India that can be used for the detection of submarines and torpedoes, the paper said.

India is also to receive tools and spare parts to produce small-caliber ammunition, according to the report. In addition, the Council also approved the delivery of 336 trucks to Algeria that, although reportedly unarmed, are considered as military vehicles because of their ability to drive through water and their blackout lighting.

Only the submarine export to Israel is considered as weapons export in the narrow sense of the term.
