Israel promises to destroy Russian S-300 missile systems in Syria if they are used against Israeli aircraft

Defense Minister of Israel Avigdor Lieberman said that any anti-aircraft systems that fire at Israel’s aircraft will be destroyed. “If someone starts shooting at our aircraft, we will destroy them. And we don’t care if it was S-300 or S-700,” he said.

Meanwhile, according to Lieberman, Israel is not very worried about the presence of Russian S-300 missile systems in Syria. “The most important thing is that the defense systems supplied by Russia to Syria are not  used against us,” the minister stated. He said that Israel “doesn’t interfere in the internal affairs of Syria."

Earlier, Russia announced its intention to supply the Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad with S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems.
