Israeli ministers have said it is time for the country to support Ukraine with arms shipments after US officials claimed on Sunday, October 16, that Iran has secretly agreed to supply Russia with surface-to-surface missiles.

The Islamic Republic has been sending drones along with Iranian troops into Ukraine to operate them, siding with Russia in its bloody invasion.

Israeli Diaspora Affairs Minister Nachman Shai wrote on Twitter: ‘There is no longer any doubt where Israel should stand in this bloody conflict. The time has come for Ukraine to receive military aid as well, just as the USA and NATO countries provide.’

His comments came after there were reports quoted by American media, claiming that Iran is stepping up its arms supply to Russia. Tehran has finalized terms for additional weapons shipments, including two types of Iranian surface-to-surface missiles, the sources said.

A shipment of Fateh-110 and Zolfaghar missiles, weapons capable of striking targets at distances of 300 and 700 kilometers respectively, are set to be delivered for Putin’s troops to use against targets in Ukraine — where Russian soldiers have been targeting civilians with missile strikes.

Moscow has been searching for allies for its nearly eight-month war in Ukraine after invading the country on February 25, only to have its nose bloodied by fierce Ukrainian resistance and a subsequent counter-attack. (DM / VFI News)
