ALBAWABA - Israel is getting a hiding from Russia over Ukraine, with the Foreign Ministry in Moscow warning Tel Aviv not to supply weapons to Kyiv. 

Moscow's swift response followed comments made by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that Israel is considering sending weapons to Ukraine to boost its role in the war against Russia.

Russia's warning trended on social media, with commentaries saying that military supplies would only escalate the conflict and fuel the war that started on Feb. 24, 2022. 

"We say that all countries that supply weapons [to Ukraine] should understand that we will consider these [weapons] to be legitimate targets for Russia's armed forces," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova told reporters according to the Moscow Times.
