'Israel' to consider supplying arms, Iron Dome to Ukraine: Netanyahu
The Israeli occupation PM says "Israel" is considering the possibility of providing Kiev with its Iron Dome anti-air system.
Israeli occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu indicated on Saturday that "Israel" will 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 his 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.
The occupation's Prime Minister said that "Israel’s contribution will probably be in other areas."
Elsewhere, he claimed that "Israel is currently providing humanitarian assistance to Ukraine. We accepted a large number of Ukrainian refugees."
"Thus, we provide a different kind of assistance," Netanyahu concluded.
It is worth noting that the Iron Dome air security system "was developed with funding help from Washington, and both governments have veto power over proposals to share it," according to The Washington Post.
On Tuesday, the Israeli occupation Prime Minister told CNN he was considering providing Kiev with military support, including supplying Ukraine with the Iron Dome technology.

"Well, I'm certainly looking into it," he said.
Netanyahu also validated statements that the US has transferred stockpiles of artillery stationed in "Israel" to Ukraine, saying, "The US just took a huge chunk of 'Israel's' munitions and passed it on to Ukraine."
'Israel' helping Ukraine behind the scenes: Israeli envoy in Berlin
In late January, the Israeli occupation ambassador to Berlin, Ron Prosor, said that "Israel" is helping Ukraine, but behind the scenes, German media reported.
"We help - albeit behind the scenes - and much more than is known," Prosor said in an interview for the German newspaper Morgenpost.
'Israel' donating weapons to Ukraine via third countries: Exclusive
However, a Russian intelligence source told Al Mayadeen in December that the Israeli occupation is donating money to buy Ukraine weapons from third countries.
The Russian source said "Tel Aviv" is using third countries to conceal its bias toward Ukraine, highlighting that several Israeli armored vehicles have been detected in Ukraine.
Haaretz also reported that "Israel" 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.
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.
It is noteworthy that senior Russian Security Council member, Dmitry Medvedev, warned in October "Israel" against providing weapons to Ukraine, threatening that any move to boost Kiev's arsenal would severely damage bilateral relations.
