Anti-UAV Israeli radars land in Ukraine
The Israeli occupation has given anti-UAV radars to Ukraine through aid from Lithuania, with three out of 16 arriving in the country.
Ukraine received last week a radar system produced by the Israeli occupation's RADA Electronic Industries company, the Haaretz newspaper reported Monday, citing the Lithuanian Blue/Yellow pro-Ukraine volunteer organization.
The Israeli newspaper revealed that the first three ieMHR radars were deployed on the battlefield.
Rada's systems are used by the Israeli occupation forces to identify and classify aircraft and rockets, and they are connected to the early alarm system that alerts settlers within a threatened area.
The system warns against short-range aerial threats, including missiles, rockets, mortars, aircraft, and drones.
The system was purchased for Ukraine with donations, "especially ones made by Lithuanian citizens," the Israeli newspaper said.

The Israeli occupation has long been accused of supplying arms to Ukraine via third countries, and revelations are made all the time regarding the issue.
A Russian intelligence source told Al Mayadeen in December 2022 that the Israeli occupation was donating money to buy Ukraine weapons from third countries.
"Tel Aviv" is using third countries to conceal its bias toward Ukraine, the source noted, highlighting that "Israel" was giving Ukraine non-lethal aid, but several Israeli armored vehicles have been detected in Ukraine.
The occupation, according to a Haaretz report issued in November, spent millions of dollars to appease its Western partners by procuring undisclosed strategic materials for Ukraine after "Tel Aviv" faced pressure to send the arms to Kiev via a third country.
Reportedly, the United States is the party that pressured the occupation, which had to go against its proclaimed stance to only send humanitarian assistance to Ukraine.
Israeli occupation media reported in mid-September that an Israeli arms manufacturer was supplying anti-UAV systems to Ukraine via Poland, with the sales conducted through Warsaw to circumvent "Tel Aviv's" refusal to sell advanced arms to Ukraine.
The firm reportedly informed the Israeli Ministry of Security that it was selling arms to Poland, though it claimed not to know the latter was then giving the weapons to Kiev to use against Russia.
Moreover, Israeli occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in February that "Israel" would consider the possibility of supplying arms to Ukraine and thinking about the issue of providing Kiev with the Iron Dome anti-air system.
"The issue of arms supplies was considered and rejected by the previous Israeli government. I will study this issue and answer this matter in the most adequate manner," Netanyahu said in an interview for France’s LCI TV during a state visit to France.
Asked whether "Israel" is considering providing Kiev with its Iron Dome anti-air system, Netanyahu said, "Yes, I’m thinking about it. That’s all I can say."
"I can’t make any promises. We have to see what options are available and also take into account" "Israel's" interests in the region, he added.
