Defense Minister Yoav Gallant speaks to his Ukrainian counterpart Oleksii Reznikov, his officie says.

According to the Israeli readout, Gallant was briefed on developments on the ground, and expressed concern regarding the humanitarian situation in Ukraine.

“The parties also discussed the common threat posed by Iran, and its influence on the war in Ukraine, as well as its wider global impact,” the statement says.

Gallant also updates Reznikov on the progress of a missile-warning system Israel is developing for Ukraine.

Ukraine has long demanded Israel supply it with air defense systems, but Israel has so far refused in a bid to avoid angering the Russians, who have a large military presence in neighboring Syria.
