Netanyahu: Israel está limitado en su asistencia a Ucrania por los acuerdos con Rusia sobre Siria

A few years ago, the Hebrew country reached an agreement with Moscow to resist Iran’s attempts to “open a third front” against the nation from Syria, explained the Israeli prime minister.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday that his country is limited in providing assistance to Ukraine due to agreements it has with Russia on Syria.

The statements were made during a conference joint press meeting with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, about the results of a meeting they held in Berlin.

“I have to say bluntly and frankly that we have a difficult situation in Israel,” the politician answered a question about the prospects of expanding assistance to kyiv.

Addressing the issue, Netanyahu explained that a few years ago Israel reached an agreement with Russia to resist Iran’s attempts to “open a third front” against the country from the Arab nation. According to him, the agreement stipulated that the states would not shoot down each other’s planes, so the pilots of both countries “fly at a minimum distance from each other in the skies of Syria.”

A day earlier, the US portal Axios reported that Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant and Foreign Minister Eli Cohen approved export licenses for the possible sale of anti-drone jamming systems from Hebrew companies Elbit and Rafael that could help Ukraine counter attacks russians.

The publication specifies that so far no decisions have been made on the supply of these systems, but the availability of licenses allows this possibility.

An anonymous source told the outlet that one of the reasons Israel approved the licenses would have been to see how its defense systems against Iranian drones allegedly used by Russia against Ukraine work. However, from Tehran they have dismissed as “unfounded” the reports on the supply of this type of aircraft to Moscow in the midst of the military operation it is carrying out.
