Israel Threatens to Destroy Syrian Air Defense Systems

JERUSALEM – Israel’s Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman threatened on Sunday to destroy Syria’s air defense systems if they target Israeli fighter jets, flying over Syrian airspace, again.

Syria activated its ground to air missile systems as Israeli warplanes flew inside Syria’s airspace to carry out airstrikes on Friday.

“The next time the Syrians use their air defense systems against our planes, we will destroy them without the slightest hesitation,” Lieberman said.

In response to the Israeli bombings in Syria, the war-torn Arab nation fired Surface to Air missiles (SAM) that were intercepted by Israel’s Arrow defense system, before crashing into Jordanian territory.

“Our main problem is with the transfer of advanced weapons from Syria to Lebanon. That is why every time we identify an attempt to smuggle game-changing weapons, we will act to thwart it. There will be no compromise on this issue,” Lieberman added.

He insisted that Israel has no interest in intervening in the ongoing conflict in Syria or picking a fight with Russia, the main ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.

After the Israeli strikes, Russia summoned the Israeli ambassador in Moscow, Gary Koren, and protested the violation of Syrian airspace.

On the other hand, Syrian claimed to have downed one of the aircraft delivering the airstrikes inside Syrian territory.
