Interesting discussion in RT ,Someone with a Russian name ,that i cant spell ,using that weird alphabet and his bio is all RUssian , told this in RT discussion , about the Israeli incident in Syria where the Israeli angry general threatened Syria to destroy its air defenses if dare to defend themselves against their attacks.
Can anyone confirm if the Russian minister of defense told this?
... S-300 shooting of 2 Israeli planes CONFIRMED .Now, they're angry. Good
... S200 , not S300
...Confirmed by who? Where's the pictures? There aren't any. Fake news!
...The Russian Ministry of Defense said it. Fake news?
Syria government is not popular for inventing things. Syrian perspective who have contact with Syrian army general staff ,even explained that it was 6 missiles launched at 4 planes that invaded Syria and that two were shutdown. The Syrian air defenses scared the Israeli airforce and they had to abort their mission and flee towards Jordan airspace after entering for 5 minutes in Palmyra.
If you know some country defenses are "totally useless" against your airforce ,then why get angry and complain about them? threatening to destroy them?
The only reason he will seek to target Syria air defenses is because they feel
they are quite dangerous for their airforce. anyone agrees?
Whatever it is the truth.. it is clear ,now that the Israel airforce for the first time admits that Syrian air defenses are a major threat to them so much that they now threaten to destroy them. and that flying over Syria is a major risk ,even for Israel modernized planes.
it have been said that Syria S-200s have been improved by Russia with more newer sensors ,so i will not discount their capabilities to do the job of defending today any airspace ,like some people likes to do.
