Israel’s military is the most powerful in the Middle East while its air force ranks second to none globally, according to a new study conducted by military experts for the publication Business Insider.

The publication ranked the 15 strongest armies in the region while noting the size of the countries’ respective defense budgets as well as the latest geopolitical tumult and its impact on military strength.

“A close defense relationship with the US and an energetic domestic defense industry give Israel a qualitative edge over all of the region's other militaries,” the report stated.
