Syria May Have Acquired Key Russian Missiles
A Russian convoy of game-changing S300 missile batteries reached Syria last week, claimed Arab intelligence sources speaking to KleinOnline.
Israeli security sources said there is no information to support the Arab claim.
The information comes as the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times reported that Israel relayed a message to the Obama administration describing an imminent Russian deal to sell the advanced anti-aircraft missile systems to Syria.
The S300 missile batteries are able to intercept manned aircraft and guided missiles.
According to the Journal report, Syria has been making payments on a 2010 agreement with Russia to purchase four batteries for $900 million with delivery expected within three months. The Journal reported the S300 package included six launchers and 144 operational missiles, each with a range of up to 200 miles.
