Defense Minister Benny Gantz on Tuesday approved a new shipment of defensive aid to Ukraine’s emergency services as Russia’s invasion presses on.

The latest aid package will include 1,500 helmets, 1,500 protective vests, hundreds of mine protection suits, 1,000 gas masks and dozens of hazmat filtration systems, according to Gantz’s office.

The protective equipment will be transferred to the country in the coming weeks, the Defense Ministry said.

Jerusalem has so far avoided providing direct military aid to Kyiv — including offensive arms or advanced defensive technology — since Russian troops invaded Ukraine on February 24, in an attempt to avoid sparking a crisis with Moscow.
