According to Brodsky, Israel’s assistance to Ukraine is limited by agreements with Russia in the field of security, “through which it is impossible to cross.”
The publication notes that the Kremlin allows the Israeli Air Force to strike Iranian arms supplies using Syrian airspace, which is under Russian control. Israel considers the destruction of Iranian-supplied weapons critical to its national defense.
Brodsky emphasizes that “no Israeli government would risk jeopardizing this agreement for the sake of any third party, including Ukraine.”
He noted that Israel is not a member of NATO and is in a “much more fragile situation.”
- On November 13, Israel launched a missile attack on a large air base in Syria, which was used by the military of Iran and Russia.
