Israeli effort to prevent Russians passing to Iran Western arms seized in Ukraine

A Russian IL-76 transport aircraft was sighted on Aug. 20 landing at Tehran airport and unloading an estimated $100m worth of Western arms taken booty in the Ukraine war. Senior Israeli officers shared images of the delivery that were recorded by satellite on June 15 this year to leading publications for kicking off a major effort to prevent Western weapons captured in the Ukraine army from falling into Iranian hands.  The consignment included anti-tank missiles, American Javelins and British products. The subject was aired when Defense Minister Yoav Gallant conversed with US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin in Brussels on Friday.
