Earlier on Tuesday, Israeli media reported citing Israel’s Defence Ministry that the state military together with the US National Missile Defence Agency had conducted an Arrow 3 missile defence system test.

The Russian military has detected the launch of a missile drone by Israel over the Mediterranean Sea as part of missile defence tests, the Russian Ministry of Defence said on Tuesday.

“Today, at 07.35 am Moscow time [04:35 GMT], the Russian Aerospace Forces detected the launch of a missile drone over the Mediterranean Sea,” the ministry said in a statement.

According to the statement, the missile’s trajectory extended from the central part of the Mediterranean Sea towards the east coast.

“The experts of Russia’s National Defence Control Center have classified the target as a missile drone used for testing the missile defence system of the Israeli Air Force,” the ministry added.

This comes after earlier in the day the media reported citing Israel’s Defence Ministry that the country’s military together with the US National Missile Defence Agency had conducted an Arrow 3 missile defence system test.

Russia and Israel have joint military teams and a hot line, but both Russia and US have given Israel green light to destroy Iranian targets in Syria.

No wonder Putin is so short you can see him coming with a big knife from behind.He clearly give and sell modified systems to his allies and sell advance systems to allies enemies for weapons testing purpose.


Yeah, it’s public information of here. BTW, the rocket is said to have worked flawlessly.


So what the benefit of this detection to Russia or to Syria. Washington and Israeli terrorists already attacking and targeting Syrian Cities without any break. Anyway the Russian allies are under Israeli and washington attacks and Russia can detect the Israeli missile test.

Willing Conscience (The Truths

According to Israeli media, the dummy missile was a medium range ballistic missile with similar capabilities to the ones the Iranians used against Isis in Syria.
They also say the test went very well, but in the real world we all know that just one test conducted under controlled conditions means nothing, the next 2 or 3 might all fail.

Real Anti-Racist Action

It is so funny, Israels are smart enough to know that ethnic-Russia’s are their enemy.
However Russians are not smart enough to know who their enemy is. Thus the “disconnect”. Jews know who to harm for their interest, Russians do not know who to harm to protect themselves. Reminds me how Jews committed the Holodomor against Russians, and Russians bend over backwards trying to justify Russian genocide lol. https://holodomorinfo.com/

So ? Did they write up a Notam for Greek authorities as they were using the sea for exercises and teats . Also were likely in Greek FIR.

Or did they roam the seas like drunken English Lords?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
