BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – The United States (U.S.) and Israel have allegedly sent a secret military group to Ukraine to train against the S-300 air defense system, Israel’s Hadashot TV reported yesterday.
The U.S. and Israel have yet to comment on this report.
In early October, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced that they had successfully delivered the S-300 air defense system to Syria.
Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said the move to supply Syria with the S-300 system was purely defensive and should not threaten any neighboring country.
Since the Russian delivery of the S-300 system, Israel has not bombed or entered Syrian airspace.
