The Hezbollah media wing in Syria released pictures of air defense systems of the Syrian military.
The move is clearly related to the recent Israeli airstrikes against targets in Syria and is aimed to show to the Israeli Air Force that the Syrian Air Defense Forces have enough capabilities to pose a real threat to Israeli warplanes.
Last weeked, the Israeli Air Force’s warplanes conducted airstrikes against Syrian military targets near Palmyra. In turn, the Syrian military launched S-200 missiles against Israeli targets. According to the Syrian Defense Ministry, one Israeli warplane was downed. The Israeli Defense Forces denied any losses.
