Israel stands with the Ukrainian people. 🇮🇱 🇺🇦
Amid Russia’s active use of UAVs from Iran, who is the strategic opponent of Israel in the Middle East, and the message of possible purchase of Iranian rockets by Moscow, Ukraine has stated that it would ask Israel for an immediate supply of air defence systems.
Earlier, Benny Hanz, the Minister of Defence of Israel, announced that his country would not provide Ukraine with weapons to counteract the Russian invasion; however, he said, they could send Ukraine systems of early warning about rocket or drone attacks.
