Ofeq-5

Israel is likely to sell high resolution pictures of Kashmir to India:

Israel is favourably inclined towards providing India with high resolution pictures of Kashmir from its photo reconnaissance Ofeq-5 satellites.

Israeli officials have said sharp cuts in the Defence Ministry and the close strategic relations with New Dehli have led to a review of its policy of limiting the access of its photo reconnaissance satellite to itself, Middle East Newsline said in a report.

India had submitted a request to buy pictures, either delivered directly or via Israel, in exchange for a fixed fee during the September visit of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, according to the report.
