January 27, 1999 - JTA

The U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency reportedly believes that Israel illegally shared sensitive American laser technology with China, according to The Washington Times.

Citing a Pentagon intelligence report, the newspaper reported that U.S. contractors in Israel told the Defense Department's investigative unit they saw Chinese technicians working with an Israeli company involved in the Tactical High-Energy Laser Project. Israel has repeatedly rejected past charges that it illegally transferred American technology to the Chinese.
