Since early 2000s, generally no.

As a policy, Israel coordinates the export of security technology with the USA, which sees exports to China unfavorably.

This is the situation since the 2000 cancellation, by American requirement, of the Falcon deal, which greatly angered the Chinese government.

Since then, security export from Israel to China is generally prohibited (Hebrew source).

However, detailed information about security exports is hard to find. It's possible that some deals are done after all, but probably not at large scale.
