BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 P.M.) – Israel opposes Russia supplying Syria with S-300 anti-aircraft systems, former Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon told RIA Novosti on Saturday.

“Of course, we do not like it,” the former Defense Minister said.

“The S-300 is a more powerful system, and we do not like its appearance there, but just as we are ready and able to overcome the entire existing air defense of Syria, we should be ready to deal with the S-300,” Ya’alon said.

According to him, Tel Aviv did not want the complexes “fell into the hands of the Syrians”, and earlier, when such questions arose, the Israeli side discussed them through channels of communication with the Russian leadership.

“I believe Russia is receiving signals from our authorities about the undesirability of such supplies,” the former Defense Minister added.

Nope, but they need Israeli transfers of technology!
It makes them able to keep up with the Jones in MilTech.
How d’you think they filled the 20-30 years gap they had with the west in 1991 while defence budgets have got drastic cuts?
It’s the Israeli/Indian channel.
Israel gets ToT from the Yanks, India gets ToT from the EU, mostly the French and Israel+India tightly collaborate while they work together with Russians too.

Egypt and Jordan stopped acting stupid and have no troubles! So sall Syria do, period!

Russia should send them and prevent Israel from being able to carry out constant illegal airstrikes in Syria.

Syria puts itself into harm’s way, you shoud read the terms of 1973 ceasefire, UN charter and Hague convention. Remember that, as, at the difference of Egypt or Jordan who signed a peace treaty they complied to, Syria is still in war with Israel. Just the fact Iran supplies weapons to Lebanese Hezbollah through Syria allows Israeli to operate such strikes in full legality, especially as UNSC voted the disarmament of Lebanese Hezbo, and they even did it at the unanimity! Actually, we can even be happy that Jerusalem doesn’t uses this and the shelling into Golan Heights that happen… Read more »
