Israel Threatens To Attack Russian Missile Deliveries To Syria

• Business Insider

The warning by Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon ratcheted up tensions with Moscow over the planned sale of S-300 air-defense missiles to Syria. Earlier in the day, a top Russian official said his government remained committed to the deal.

Israel has been lobbying Moscow to halt the sale, fearing the missiles would upset the balance of power in the region and could slip into the hands of hostile groups, including the Lebanese militia Hezbollah, a close ally of the Syrian regime.

Israel has carried out several airstrikes in Syria in recent months that are believed to have destroyed weapons shipments bound for Hezbollah. Israel has not confirmed carrying out the attacks.

The IDF would be derelict in their duties if they did not plan to respond forcefully to the threat posed by these munitions.  As a senior official commented, when asked about the choice between Bashir al Assad's moral paragons such as Hez-b'allah's Nasrallah and the USA's vile proxys (AKA al Qaida); it as choice between 'bad' and 'worse'.  Anyone who really thinks the crafty Jooz are manipulating the situation are sorely mistaken.
