Axios: "Israel" considering increasing military supplies to Ukraine
The Israeli government is discussing a request made by the Biden administration to send weapons to Ukraine.
So far, "Israel" has refused Ukrainian requests for advanced weaponry to be delivered, but the Israeli government is signaling it is gradually becoming more open to supplying Ukraine with non-lethal military equipment.
Last week, the Biden administration asked "Israel" to consider increasing military supplies to Ukraine, according to Axios.
The Israeli occupation sent the head of the Ministry of Security's political-military bureau, Dror Shalon, to the US Ramstein Air Base in Germany for talks on sending weapons to Ukraine.
The US government had made it clear that Washington understands the occupation's situation with Russia but hopes that it can do more to provide military supplies to Ukraine. The message was apparently delivered during an earlier meeting last week between US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, and his Israeli counterpart Eyal Hulata.
Axios reports that a senior Israeli official said "Israel" is indeed considering increasing military supplies to Ukraine, and is likely to do so in the future. They stressed, however, that the Israeli government will only provide non-lethal equipment. A Ukrainian official said Kiev is hoping "Israel" will provide it with licenses from the Israeli Ministry of Security for communications gear and anti-drone systems.
