CAN ISRAEL’S DELILAH MISSILE TAKE OUT RUSSIAN S 300 IN SYRIA?Russia will equip Syria’s armed forces with S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems. The Kremlin, which earlier did not supply the system to Damascus, because of Israel’s request, has now reversed its stance.
This change happened after U.S. and U.K.-led attacks on Syria.
The dreaded air defense systems will be provided to Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad free of charge.
This development has resulted in a war of words.
Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said, “One thing should be clear – if someone fires on our planes, we will destroy them".
Lieberman was reported by Haaretz as saying. “What’s important to us is that the weapons defense systems that the Russians transfer to Syria are not used against us. If they are used against us, we will act against them.”
Lieberman acknowledged that the S-300 systems were already being used in Syria, but only in defense of Russian assets and not against Israel.
Russian officials cautioned against targeting the equipment. If Israel attacks them, they said, it would suffer “catastrophic consequences.”
‘Delilah’ missile is Israel’s answer to S 300.
