Israel will begin supplying Ukraine with high-precision missiles if Iran hands over its ballistic missiles to Russia, Israel's Head of National Security Staff Eyal Hulata said.

Israel also warned the Russian Federation against buying high-precision ballistic missiles from Iran.

"The Head of the National Security Council of Israel, Eyal Hulata, warned Russia against such a step and warned that if the spread of Iranian missiles is not stopped, it could lead to the appearance of high-precision ballistic missiles in Ukraine," the statement said.
