Israel is said to have again attacked Syria’s military.

Opposition sources said the Israel Air Force struck a Syrian military facility in the Mediterranean port of Latakia.

Sources said an Israeli air strike targeted Russian-made missiles intended for Hizbullah..

The sources said the Israeli attack appeared to have targeted a warehouse that contained the Russian-origin S-300PMU2 air defense system.

“We heard massive explosions just outside the port,” a source said.

The latest strike, reported on early Jan. 27, marked the latest attempt to destroy the S-300 fleet in Syria. The sources said Israel conducted at least two attempts to destroy the long-range air defense system, stationed in Latakia, in 2013.

Syria was said to have received components of the S-300 in mid-2013. The system, with a range of more than 200 kilometers, could down Israeli fighter-jets in the air space of the Jewish state.

Israel was believed to have attacked Syrian military facilities in Latakia in May, July and October 2013. In the October operation, up to 20 Syrian soldiers were said to have been killed.

Neither Israel nor Syria has confirmed reports of an attack on the
 S-300. Lebanon has reported the entry of Israeli warplanes on late Jan. 26.

So, the Russians are still sending Syria tons and tons of weapons.  And here we thought Putin had been duped by Obuttocks into disarming Syria - at least if Kerry and the liberal mass media can be believed.

Of course. Syria and Russia have a been dealing with the Assad families for decades. There are about 30,000 who live in the military bases in Syria.

Oh I'm well aware of the Russians' love for Syria; I just think it's rather telling that Putin's right there making sure Syria is armed to the teeth, after having played Obama like a two-bit banjo.

Its not the only country supporting Assad. China, Iran,Cuba,Venezuela and North Korea is supporting him. Iran is supporting Assad with men and material. There are several flights a week from Iran with men and material. They fly over Iraqi airspace.
