Israel and Georgia's War with Russia
Israel has been selling defensive arms to Georgia for about 7 years, but now must halt the sales because of fear of Russian retaliation. We have Israeli companies in Georgia and Jews do live there. Israel doesn't want Russia to get even by getting arms to Iran and Arab states.
South Ossetia became independent from George in the early 1990's. It's independence has not been recognised by the international community. Last Friday Georgian troops went against South Ossetia to control the area. The Russians then invaded with jets and tanks to stop the Georgian soldiers.
