For quicker and more targeted alerts to civilians in targeted areas, the Israeli military will test its early warning system in Kyiv, which connects to Ukraine’s air defense network.
The Israeli military plans to test its civilian early warning system in Kyiv next month, aiming to make it operational by the summer. The system, which connects to the Ukrainian military radar and air defense network, can send faster and more specific alerts to civilians in targeted areas. Israeli officers from the Home Front Command have met with Ukrainian military officers and officials in Poland to discuss adapting the software for Ukraine’s needs. A successful pilot project in Kyiv will lead to the system’s operation in other cities with over one million residents. Israel’s government is hesitant to supply lethal military assistance to Ukraine, fearing that Russia could retaliate by limiting the Israeli air force’s freedom of operation against Iranian targets in Syria.
