Russia sending armored vehicles to West Bank

www.presstv.ir...

We have sent the Palestinians 50 armored vehicles, they have arrived in Jordan, and we hope that they will arrive here in the next few days," Lavrov told reporters in the occupied West Bank on Tuesday.

The Russian official's remark came after meetings with acting Palestinian Authority Chief Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

Earlier in 2008, Israel allowed the Russian Defense Ministry to supply the vehicles in two shipments of 25 each, AFP reported.

However, the delivery has so far been delayed as Israel argued that the shipment could fall into the hands of the Palestinian Resistance Movement of Hamas.

Interesting. Is this being reported anywhere else yet? I'm sure there are some who will make connections to Russia's being forced to to stop dealing with Iran due to the sanctions and calling this still selling to Iran by proxy. Seems Israel may already hinting toward that. So what is Israel's take here exactly? That no country should be allowed to be prepared for what might befall them? Defensive weapons? Because "someone" thinks they shouldn't have them? Well I think Israel should not have nukes. Someone please do something about that? Ugh.

Without reading further into this than the OP's link, how are they going to get them there?

Israel has a tight blockade? Hard to hide armoured vehicles in sacks of rice.

edit


"The delivery of the armored troop transport vehicles has been negotiated with all the countries involved. They will be delivered by sea from July to September," said the officer, who declined to be named.

The 50 armored vehicles, which are being provided by the Russian Defence Ministry, are ready to be dispatched, he added.

link answered my own question, 'negotiated with all the countries involved' - So Israel is happy I suppose, they don't do anything they are not happy with.

Why allow armoured vehicles through now though?

It took the flotilla massacre for Israeli's to ease the blockade enough to allow in biscuits and mayo but this makes no sense at all?

No way. If they won't allow chocolate or cement, they are certainly not allowing armored vehicles?

I can't get link to come up...it is trying, but it is very, very slow. Is this a credible news outlet? Not Sorcha Faal is it?

If it is credible, then I would suspect that the shipment will be stopped and turned around or offloaded into the sea!

Appears it is true, and Israel did originally approve it! Since the original approval, they have been trying to stop it, but now it appears that Russia is intending to deliver.

The link was defence news, I usually think they are credible, not much more than we already know from this thread tho.

another thought, well if your going to allow something it goes without saying you know the details etc... What's the odds those vehicles have tracking, de-mobilisation and bugging stuff fitted discreetly?

What could Israel have been thinking when they approved it?

Now, with the recent escalation of tensions along the blockade, it seems Russia is trying to provoke Israel into standing behind their original agreement or acting aggressively to stop the action? Why would Russia want to escalate the situation further at this very moment in time?

Are the trying to align the sides Russia/Iran/Palestine vs. US/Israel/UK?

These are going to the West Bank not Gaza.I'm not sure weather there is a blockade into the West Bank or not ,i thought Israels relations with Abbas were better than with Hamas.

That.
Well, almost that.
There is no blockade in the West Bank. Why evil genocidal murderous Israel is not blockading West Bank - i do not know. It surely has nothing to do with the fact that there are no rockets fired from West Bank into Israel. No sir.
And the reason Abbas uses to get those shiny toys is to help him prevent Hamas from gaining upper hand in West Bank too. This is why Israel is happy, Fatah is happy, Russia is happy. Hamas - i do not know.
p.s
Though i am pretty stunned that people do not know that blockade is only on Gaza and only after Israel proper was bombarded for long time and Hamas took over. It got nothing to do with anti-Israeli propaganda too. No sir 2.

Actually Palestinians had 2 chances to get Palestine. Without blood or gasing. In 1948 and in Camp David.
But since for some it is not as much about getting Palestine as it is about getting Jews out - no wonder that there is nothing gained. With blood or without.

Quick question, why is it ok for America to supply Israel with weapons, but not ok for Russia or anyone for that matter to supply Palestine with weapons, or in this case armoured vehicles

Quicker question: Why it was ok for Israel to supply Palestinian authority with weapons but not ok for Russia to supply Palestinian authority with weapons?
Super quick answer - it is ok for both and both supplied Palestinian authority with weapons.
So i fail to get your point.
Unless it is of course:
why it is not ok to supply Gaza with weapons? - in that case Gaza in actively hostile to Israel so like in any war Israel chooses to prevent its adversary from getting weapons in any form it can.

If to you "couple of fireworks" equals thousands of rockets,smallest ones with half-kilogram of explosives and biggest ones with tens kilograms and range of
10 km that together killed 28 people in Israel and 6 people in Gaza itself - then there is nothing left to say.
And as for your humane "peace plan" - even most radical/racist fanatical elements in Israel,Palestine ,Iran ,Syria and ctr do not suggest to stop current conflict (that took lives of tens of thousands in 80 years it goes on) by killing more then 10 million people. All they want is to throw other side out. And there is a lot of hate involved,on both sides.
I wonder what has to be involved to suggest what you suggested then. I really do not know the answer so help me out,will you?

From the OP. Israel (and Palestinian autonomy) and Jordan have land border. What ship? What commandos?
I would surely like to see people actually read the post they reply to. But maybe it is a cowardly approach. Better to come in and fire right away.
And if you want to read about military engagements between Israel and Soviet (as close as it gets to modern Russian federation) forces - you can read about 6 days war and Yom Kippur war.
