Russia has reportedly requested that Israel not intervene or impede its efforts to transfer defense equipment from Syria to Ukraine.

The Kan public broadcaster, citing an Israeli official involved in the issue, reports 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, although Moscow-Jerusalem ties have been strained since Russia invaded Ukraine earlier this year.
