‘Major mistake’: Israel, US warn Russia against giving S-300 missiles to Syria


(Worthy News) - Both Jerusalem and Washington warned Russia on Monday evening against its declared intention to provide the Syrian military with advanced surface-to-air missiles within two weeks, saying the move would further destabilize the region and increase already high tensions.

Israel’s high-level security cabinet was set to meet Tuesday morning to discuss the latest developments involving ties with Russia, in the aftermath of last week’s downing of a Russian plane by Syrian anti-aircraft fire during an Israeli airstrike.

Russian President Vladimir Putin informed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of the decision to provide Syria with the S-300 system in a phone call Sunday. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]

  1. Well, let's see ....... I read where Israel had made over 300 sorties into Syria, supposedly every one to stop Syrian aggression. Syria has responded to these aggressions "0"times. Hmmm, let's see now, who's the real aggressor here.
    And last week, Israel shot down a Russian jet. Hmmm, maybe Putin is just trying to stop "Israel" aggression............. oh, but Nooooooo, Israel can't do any wrong, can it?
