'Israel' main issue is Iran-Russia alliance: Israeli media
Speaking to Israeli Channel 13, Former Minister Haim Ramon warns of the alliance taking shape between Iran and Russia and says has "huge repercussions."
Israeli media reported on Sunday that "Israel's" prominent problem is the alliance that is taking shape between Iran and Russia.
"Israel's main problem today is the alliance that is taking shape between Iran and Russia. This has huge repercussions, and this is what should worry us," Former minister Haim Ramon told Israeli Channel 13.
"Putin seems to be busy with talks with Iranian officials, and this is what preoccupies him these days, and this is the central problem, the alliance that has emerged between Iran and Russia, and this is what should worry us, perhaps more than what is happening in Syria," Ramon added, considering that "this has huge repercussions."
In a related context, the former Israeli minister touched on the threat posed by the resistance in Lebanon and Syria to the Israeli occupation, fearing that close cooperation between Iran and Russia would contribute to the resistance's acquisition of advanced air defense systems, "that could constitute a major shift in the balance of power."
"We will not allow Iran to provide Hezbollah with weapons of this kind, because this changes the reality, and this matter must be prevented at almost any cost," Ramon said.
Russia has become Iran's main ally on all levels
"We must understand that Russia has become the main ally of Iran on all levels, even on the nuclear level," Ramon said last week, adding that "Any verification process would be sufficient to indicate that if this was, indeed, how things were, then we are definitely siding with Ukraine."
Ramon stressed that siding with Ukraine does not inherently mean that "Tel Aviv" would be supplying them with whatever arms they may need, "but definitely in terms of advocacy and any aid we can give without crossing the line."
Earlier, the Israeli Haaretz newspaper reported that the Israeli occupation spent millions of dollars to appease its western partners by procuring undisclosed strategic materials for Ukraine after "Tel Aviv" faced pressure to send 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.
On another note, the Ukrainian armed forces were found to be using the Israeli-made Gaia Amir Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle in the Kherson region of Russia as reported by both Ukrainian and Israeli media two weeks ago.
Photos and videos of the MRAP in use were published on various social media platforms, proving that the Israeli occupation has been supplying Kiev with weapons under the table.
It is noteworthy that, earlier, press reports stated that "Israel" may reconsider its stance on military assistance to Ukraine because of "threat from Iran."
Until now, the Israeli occupation government has been indicating its refusal to provide Kiev with weapons and equipment that the latter had requested, according to a policy adopted by the Israeli military and security institutions, in coordination with the political establishment.
Despite this, the Israeli media confirmed that "an Israeli security industries company sold the Ukrainian army anti-drone systems capable of intercepting and jamming combat drones," revealing that "these systems are being sold via Poland to circumvent Tel Aviv's refusal to sell advanced arms to Ukraine."
