Israel could conduct preemptive air strikes on Syrian weapons cache – report
JERUSALEM – As JP reports, Israeli Air Forces could conduct a preemptive air strike on weapons caches in Syria in the near future.
According to daily’s analysis of the report published a few days ago in NYT, Israeli Air Forces will soon attack Syrian weapons caches in order to secure possible strikes from Syria. Recent attack of IAF, that happened on July the 5th, didn’t manage to entirely eliminate all of the anti-ship missile arsenal, made in Russia. Though the warehouse in which the missiles were located is completely destroyed, part of the cache containing missiles was moved away before the attack.
The Israeli attack aimed alleged Russian missiles Yakhont, which could pose threat to Israel. Russia also sent SA-26 anti-aircraft missiles and two MI-24 Hind helicopters to the Assad’s regime.
