YERUSHALAYIM – In what may be an unprecedented move, Russia has reportedly requested that Israel not intervene or interdict its transfer of defense equipment from Syria to the battle front in Ukraine.

Israel’s Kan public broadcaster, citing an Israeli official involved in the issue, said that Israeli and Russian officials have been holding conversations in recent days over Moscow’s concern.

Israel and Russia have long coordinated their activities in Syrian airspace in order to avoid any clashes, even as the Israeli Air Force has flown hundreds of missions to strike at Iranian and proxy targets, including the destruction of weapons convoys headed for Hezbollah sites in Lebanon.

A Kremlin official warned a week ago that a Russian defeat in Ukraine could lead to a wave of antisemitism, Kan reported. The official explained that such a defeat would cause “a search for scapegoats.”

The official claimed that while the policies of Ukrainian President Zelensky and his western allies would be to blame for such antisemitism, Russian President Vladimir Putin is preventing it.
