Officials say won’t allow US-sanctioned Russian oligarchs to stash private jets in Israel

Israeli officials say that while there has been no decision by Jerusalem to join the United States and numerous other countries in sanctioning Russian oligarchs after the invasion of Ukraine, they will not be allowed to park their private jets in Israel in an attempt to circumnavigate sanctions.

Hebrew-language media reports say that the Israel Airports Authority has instructed staff at Ben Gurion Airport not to approve long-term parking of private jets belonging to US-sanctioned Russians to prevent them from being stashed in Israel in an attempt to bypass sanctions.

Officials issue the clarification in the wake of a Ynet news site report.
