It was previously reported that, Israel has sold 200 markava to two different countries.
One of them was European. Other one was speculated to be Morocco.

Now Morocco alone buying 200?

Yes; The reason is that US did Postponed the delivery Of M1A2M abrams for morocco due to poland ordering them and the war in Ukraine; plus The merkava will replace M-60 paton which constitutes most of the moroccan armor force.

The T-72M1CZs will replace the M-48 tanks in the Moroccan Sahara , the M1A2 SEP V3 was not postponed (it will be delivered the begining of the next year) , the Merkava will operate along with the Abrams in the eastern region while the modernized T-72s are going to be placed in the berm wall , the M60A3TTS is still in service (modernized) and will support our premiere units facing Algeria in different regions (mainly the eastern and southern ones)
