Israeli official: Russia was alerted to IAF strikes in time

An Israeli official, confirming the Tuesday night air strike in Syria, said Russia had been alerted in time and civilian aircraft were endangered only by Syrian anti-air fire. Moscow had accused Israel of endangering civilian flights. The Israeli official said the IAF had struck several Iranian targets in three main locations – primarily storage and logistics facilities used by Iran to ship weapons to Hezbollah – and also destroyed a Syrian anti-aircraft battery that fired at the Israeli jets. In another comment, the Israeli official said that Iranian forces were operating less than 80km from the Israeli border, contrary to Russian assurances.

    I wonder if the Israeli defense minister is getting an advance warning from the Russians when Russian S200 missiles are fired at Israeli civilian targets? Next time I hope the IDF has the balls to teach the Russians a lesson like they did in 1970.
