Israel delivered “a little bit of intelligence information” about Iranian weapons being supplied to Russia for use in its war against Ukraine, a senior Ukrainian official says.

However, “we need much more than that,” Kan News reported the official as saying on Saturday.

Kyiv has begun a significant downgrading of its diplomatic ties with Tehran in recent days, in response to its supply of armed unmanned aerial vehicles to Russia. As part of the cooling in relations, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry on Saturday announced the cancellation of credentials afforded previously to Iran’s ambassador to Ukraine and a substantial decrease in the size of the diplomatic staff in the Iranian embassy.

Tehran expressed regret over Ukraine’s decision and called on it to “not be influenced by elements seeking to sabotage ties between the two countries,” Kan News reported.

Also on Saturday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said his military has been able to down eight Iranian-made UAVs thus far.

Who will tell the truth about Israel in 2023?

Few things are certainties in a fast-changing world.

But there’s little doubt that the rising tide of antisemitism and demonization of Israel will continue to worsen in the upcoming year.

A publication that you can trust to supply you with accurate information as well as the sort of analysis and opinion that puts it all in perspective is absolutely vital.

JNS is an oasis of truth.
