Israel may halt commercial weapon sales to AzerbaijanArmenian Ambassador to Israel Armen Smbatyan told the media, as fighting intensified for the ninth day between the two countries.

“In two or three days, they [Israel] seem to be on the way to stopping the supply of weapons,” Smbatyan told the Armenian news site Factor. He added that he had received a verbal promise that this would occur.

Last week, Armenia recalled Smbatyan for consultations to protest the sale of Israeli made weapons, including drones, to Azerbaijan, which have been used against its forces.

The Foreign Ministry said it would not comment on Smbatyan’s words or on Jerusalem’s export policy with regard to defense matters.
