Satellite image taken 48 Hours ago show for first time, 3 launchers of the Russian made S-300 air defense system deployed in Masyaf city in northwest Syria, HAVE GONE ACTIVE.
“The Satellite image show three out of the four systems erected in Masyaf in northwestern Syria. The systems can only go erected when they are fully tied to fire control radar and ready to fire.
One launcher was observed covered by a camouflage net.
Russia decided to supply S-300 system after Moscow accused Israel of indirectly causing the downing of the Russian IL-20 Surveillance plane, which was shot down on September 17 over the Mediterranean Sea by a missile mistakenly fired by Syrian forces from the S-200 during the Israeli air strike. The incident killed 15 Russian servicemen.
In the ensuing months, Israel has continued to strike targets inside Syria, despite being repeatedly warned to stop.
This week, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is scheduled to trave to Moscow (again) for meetings. It is common over the past months that whenever Netanyahu travels to Moscow, Israel launches more attacks against targets in Syria.
As such, Syrian air defenses are at-the-ready and if Israel does come again, their war planes can be shot down even when over Lebanon or Israel itself.
Many watchers of this situation believe that an actual shoot-down of multiple Israeli war planes is now the ONLY thing that will cause Israel to halt its attacks.
The world may see exactly that, very soon.
