Syria: Russian Forces Fired on Israeli Jets in May “One-Off”


“In late May, Russia fired S-300 missiles at Israeli jets attacking Syria. Israeli DM Benny Gantz confirmed this, calling it a ‘one-off.’ The incident was reported when it happened, but this is the first time officials are discussing it. Russia has long complained about Israeli attacks on Syria, but this marks the first time they’ve actually fired on them over it. Israel says the planes were not in danger, and indeed said the heaviest fire came after the planes had already left.” (07/26/22)
