Russian missile defense system took direct hit during Israeli strikes in Syria

(Worthy News) - Russia relies heavily on foreign military sales to boost its economy. So the Kremlin scrambled to avoid bad publicity for one of its weapons systems last week after it took a direct hit during Israeli airstrikes in Syria.

Israel said it launched the attack after Iranian forces fired 20 rockets toward the Golan Heights on May 9. [ Source: World Tribune (Read More...) ]
