Israeli company reportedly supplying Ukraine anti-UAV systems
Just about the time Iranian drones supplied to Russia began appearing in the skies over Ukraine last week, press reports surfaced purporting a company in Israel is moving to step around the nation’s formal refusal to take sides in the conflict by ushering anti-UAV defense systems to Kyiv using Poland as an intermediary.
First published by the Hebrew language site Zman Yisrael and picked up by its sister publication The Times of Israel, the report alleges that an unnamed defense company plans to deliver the anti-UAV system to an entity in Poland, knowing Ukraine is the intended recipient.
Despite the system qualifying as “advanced defensive technology” that’s banned by Israel for sale to Ukraine, neither the national government nor the Defense Ministry appears inclined to quash the delivery of anti-UAV assets that may wind up being used against Iranian-supplied drones being operated by Russia.
