Israel provided Ukraine with useful intelligence to help its forces down Iranian-made kamikaze drones.

That’s according to the New York Times, Ukrinform reports.

The publication does not specify what information was offered to Ukraine, while noting that after a drone swarm attack on Kyiv earlier tin October, Ukraine’s foreign minister, Dmytro Kuleba, appealed to Israel for air defense weapons. The plea was rebuffed by Israel’s minister of defense, Benny Gantz, largely because Israel depends on Russian cooperation for the Israeli Air Force to conduct raids in Syria. Israel, he said, would provide early warning systems, but not air defense weapons.

As reported by Ukrinform, a factory for the assembly of Iranian drones was destroyed in Syria. The strikes on targets in Syria, carried out on the night of Saturday, Oct. 22, are attributed to the Air Force of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).


Russia has been using Iranian drones Shahed-136, Shahed-13, and Mohajer-6 to attack targets across Ukraine.
