Kyiv hopes new government in Jerusalem, Russia’s use of Iranian-made drones will help make case for assistance
Pressure is building on Israel to send weapons to Ukraine, as Moscow steps up strikes against the country’s civilian infrastructure, and Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to review Israel’s approach to the conflict if he returns as prime minister as expected.
Russia in recent weeks has been using drones supplied by Iran, Israel’s traditional enemy, as part of a punishing air campaign, which Kyiv says has affected more than 40% of Ukraine’s power grid. Ukrainian defense officials say Israeli expertise could be crucial in surviving Russia’s assault and are hopeful the U.S. ally is ready now to cooperate.
