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.http://www.worldtribune.com/2014/01/28/israeli-air-strike-targets-syrian-warehouse-containing-russian-s-300-systems/
