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.
Absent in the reports on this incident was anything from Russia explaining the standard by which Israeli planes can expect similar resistance. Generally, Russia opposes Israeli operations near Russian bases.
That is hasn’t happened again suggests that it may well have been a “one-off,” as Israel has been attacking Syria semi-regularly lately. Negotiations between the two nations may have sorted out what the red lines are.

Nikita was one of my favorite cartoon characters. I really miss the 60s.
Take advantage and try to review everything you can because the way Russia has been beating your mercenaries in Ukraine, better saying, Ukrainians willing to die in your service, it seems that you will have to print notes accepted as money until inflation makes it count less than toilet paper!
Next time they should light ‘em up.
I wish Russia and Syria would shoot them all down no matter were the plane is located
Duff has explained that Khrushchev’s beating of his shoe on the UN table in 1959 was referring to how the Russians and Israelis of the Tribe would eventually “bury” US.
Look at them doing just that.
