US giant Intel announced Monday it would buy Israeli car tech firm Mobileye for more than $15 billion (14 billion euros), the largest cross-border tech deal in the Jewish state's history.
Mobileye makes advanced driver assistance for car manufacturers, and has already collaborated with Intel and BMW to develop self-driving cars.
For Israel, it will be seen as a sign of the self-styled "Startup Nation" coming of age, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hailing the deal.
