'Israel' selling anti-UAV systems to Ukraine through Poland
The Israeli occupation is trying to avert tensions with Russia by selling weapons to Ukraine through Poland.
An Israeli arms manufacturer is supplying the anti-UAV systems to Ukraine via Poland, Israeli media said on Monday, citing a source in the arms firm, noting that the sales were 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 pretended not to know the latter was then giving the weapons to Kiev to use against Russia.
The anti-UAV systems enable their users to intercept and disrupt drones. Classified as "advanced defensive technology", the systems are not approved for sale to Kiev, though "Tel Aviv" did not seem to be interested in foiling the deal.
The Israeli occupation uses anti-drone systems around the Gaza separation wall, the Palestinian-Lebanese borders, and the Palestinian-Syrian borders, with "Israel" claimed to be one of the world's top developers and manufacturers of the technology with the involvement of various Israeli arms manufacturers, such as IAI, Elbit, and MCTECH.
Azerbaijan is among the countries that imported the Israeli anti-drone systems, using them against Armenia in the conflict over Nagorno-Karabakh. Even the United States uses Israeli technology for this purpose.
The Israeli occupation has refused to join the West's bid in arming Ukraine, arguing that it would harm its already sensitive ties with Russia.
However, due to "Israel's" support of Ukraine, tensions soared between "Tel Aviv" and Moscow, prompting the latter to close the "Jewish Agency for Israel's" work in Russia, giving rise to further tensions.
"Israel and Prime Minister Yair Lapid, who loves being against Russian President Vladimir Putin and believes this is good for him in the eyes of the West and the United States, turned the issue into a public policy issue," Israeli Channel 13 political affairs correspondent Moriah Wahlberg said.
"During a secret meeting, Lapid also asked for a bundle of political tools against Russia," Wahlberg revealed. "It is likely that Putin is not only angry with Lapid's statements, but rather the Israeli aid to Ukraine and the Israeli airstrikes in Syria."
Relations between "Israel" and Russia have witnessed tension in recent months, as the Russian Foreign Ministry summoned the Israeli ambassador to Russia, Alexander Ben Zvi, over a statement by Yair Lapid when he was foreign minister in April, when he condemned Russia's practices in Ukraine, describing them as "war crimes".
In addition to the Jewish Agency issue between "Israel" and Russia, a dual-citizen Israeli-Ukrainian by the name of Vladimir Kozlovsky was captured in the Lugansk People's Republic as he was fighting among the mercenaries siding with Ukraine. It is evident that his release will not take place easily in light of the lack of trust between "Israel" and Russia.
