According to News i Agency’s International Group, the media reported on Sunday that Russia has strengthened Syria’s missile defense systems, which has limited Israeli airstrikes on the country.
Newspaper “Daily Sabah“Russia has lost patience with Israel in Syria,” the report quoted Al-Sharq al-Awsat as saying. The report claims that Moscow’s move is the result of talks between Russia and the United States and that Washington is continuing Israeli attacks on Israel. Syria does not welcome it.
The report says that this space has now been created for Russia to be able to freely support the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, and that Syria will be able to overthrow the Israeli regime by using advanced missile defense systems and technical knowledge.
In recent days, the Syrian media reported that the Israeli regime repulsed the attacks. Since the start of the civil war in Syria, Russia has supported the government of Bashar al-Assad and continues to have a military presence in the country. There are currently 18 Russian military bases and posts in Syria.
Recently, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said his country had tested more than 320 weapons in Syria, including new helicopters.
Russia’s Defense Ministry also announced in recent days that the Syrian air defense system destroyed four missiles fired by Israeli fighters.
“On the morning of July 22, two Israeli F-16 fighter jets fired four guided missiles at areas in the Syrian province of Homs,” said Vadim Colt, deputy director of the Russian Reconciliation Center in Syria. He added that all the missiles fired by Israeli fighters were intercepted and destroyed by Syrian Armed Forces defense missiles equipped with Russian Buk M2E missiles.
“Our air defenses are countering missiles fired by Israel in the skies of the western suburbs of Homs and have shot down a number of them,” the official Syrian news agency said in a statement.
This was the second night in a row that Syrian territory was targeted by the Zionist regime. Last Wednesday morning, the official Syrian news agency reported that the Zionist regime had attacked an area south of Aleppo, and Syrian television said that the country’s air defenses had repelled the Zionist regime’s aggression.
Following the Six-Day War in 1967, the Zionist regime occupied a large part of the Golan Heights in Syria. In 1974, the United Nations established peacekeepers to monitor the ceasefire between the Israeli and Syrian sides in the Golan Heights.
