Defense Department reveals it is returning Ukraine weapons to Israel due to war

The Defense Department has revealed that it is returning some weapons to Israel that were previously planned for Ukraine.

The Monday press conference specifically addressed 155 mm artillery shells that were intended for Ukraine's battle against Russia.

The change

“'We withdrew 155 [shells] from the stockpile in Israel for our forces in [European Command] and now we are sending that back to Israel for their use,' a senior defense official told reporters during Pentagon press conference," Breitbart News reported.

"In January, the Pentagon first acknowledged that in order to supply Ukraine with 155 mm artillery shells for its ground war with Russia, it dipped into its stockpile in Israel," it added.

Helping both nations

"We will be able to support Israel in meeting its needs. We will be able to support Ukraine with its needs," said Patrick Ryder, a representative of the US Department of Defense.

"Yes, 155 mm shells are an area common to both. But, generally speaking, this is just one small area. And we don't think there will be any problems with supplying both countries with it," the general said.

The latest

"Israel is entering its third week of war against Hamas after the terrorist group infiltrated the country on October 7, firing thousands of rockets at residential areas and butchering civilians," Fox News reported.

"At least 6,400 people have been killed in the war on both sides, including at least 1,400 Israeli civilians and soldiers and 33 Americans," it noted.

Israeli Defense Forces continue to work toward the release of hostages and putting down Hamas terrorists.

Hamas has continued to fire missiles toward civilian areas, including the major city of Tel Aviv to the north of Gaza.

The ongoing fighting is not expected to end soon as Israel seeks a larger response to fully stop Hamas from future terror attacks.
