The German government wants to prioritize weapons deliveries to Israel amid its war with Gaza, the DPA news agency reported on Wednesday, citing sources.

According to unnamed government officials interviewed by the outlet, “commercial applications from companies for arms exports will be processed and approved with priority given the current situation” in the Middle East.

However, the agency did not provide further details on the new policy.

The report comes after German Chancellor Olaf Scholz expressed support for Israel in its war with Palestinian Resistance, saying that “there is only one place for Germany — that place is at Israel’s side.”

“Our own history, our responsibility arising from the Holocaust, makes it a perpetual task for us to stand up for the security of the state of Israel,” he said last week.

In line with this approach, German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius said last week that Berlin had returned two Heron combat drones that had been leased by the German military back to Israel, adding that talks were now underway about providing German ammunition to Israeli warships.

Israel has also asked Germany to provide it with protective vests, while Berlin has announced that it would provide medical aid to the Israeli military and examine other assistance requests.

Finally, Scholz promised that his country’s authorities would “issue a ban on Hamas activities in Germany.”
