The Israeli government has approved the issuance of export licenses for electronic warfare (EW) systems with Iranian drones. The licenses are intended for Ukraine, which is regularly attacked by Russian-made kamikaze drones of Iranian production. This is reported by the Israeli media, citing anonymous Israeli and Ukrainian sources.
A Ukrainian delegation recently visited Israel to participate in the presentation of an electronic warfare system that generates frequency interference and thereby deprives drones of orientation.
Agreements on the issuance of export licenses have not yet been signed.
The representative of Ukraine during his stay in Israel said that most of all Ukrainian troops need systems to counter ballistic missiles. According to him, in recent months, the Ukrainian army has improved the effectiveness of protection against drones.
US Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer welcomed Israel’s decision to approve export licenses for anti-drone systems.
Schumer’s statement, released on Thursday, noted that the drones “cause terrible damage, often resulting in the death or injury of civilians.” During a recent visit by a US congressional delegation to Israel, the senator said he and his colleagues pressured the Israeli government to take action to help Ukraine counter drones.
