BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:45 A.M.) – The Venezuelan military has deployed more S-300 air defense missiles to a key airbase south of Caracas, the Image Sat International reported on Sunday.

According to Image Sat, the Venezuelan armed forces activated their S-300 missiles after completing their military drills in February.

As shown in the photo below, Image Sat reveals through their satellite imagery the additional S-300 missiles that have been deployed to the Captain Manuel Rios Airbase in the Guarico state of Venezuela:

In addition to activating their S-300 missiles, the Venezuelan Armed Forces received a major boost on Sunday when the Russian Air Force and their military personnel arrived inside the country.

It remains unclear how active the Russian military is going to be in Venezuela, as despite the protests and sporadic violence, there has been really no real attempt to overthrow the government of Nicolas Maduro.

Maduro did state on Saturday that his government foiled an assassination plot by the Venezuelan opposition recently; however, no details were given.

And Israelis will surely enter first to demolish air defences using F-35. Without Israel having been the #1 arms supplier during the 80’s…

Saddam would have finished the mullahs off. To thank them, Khomeini and Khamenei have just funded hundreds of terrorist actions against Israelis.
