'Don't provoke': Putin warns Israel over Iron Dome systems for Kyiv; Russia suspects U.S behind plan

Russia is in rage ever since the West scaled back its weapons supply to Ukraine. In the latest development, Israel is considering sending Iron Dome missile defence systems to Kyiv. This has left Russia fuming, and the Vladimir Putin administration has even issued a deterrent to the Israeli government. According to Maria Zakharova, a Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson, "anyone speculating about sending any weapons to Ukraine is escalating the conflict; don't try to provoke us." Zakharova added that Russia will consider these weapons to be legitimate targets for Russian armed forces. The statement was in response to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's remarks. Netanyahu said in an interview with CNN that he did not rule out sending Iron Dome missile defence systems to Ukraine, which his predecessor rejected outright. Watch this report for more.
