The Lebanese newspaper Ad-Diyar reports that Israel has managed to block the transfer of Russian S-300 anti-aircraft missiles from Russia to Lebanon.

According to the report, Israel applied direct and indirect pressure, as well as threatened to start an all-out war should Russia hand Lebanon these missiles (to then transfer them to Syria).

According to the report, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov made clear to Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Mohi Edine al Muallem that the final decision on the matter is in the hands of President Boris Putin.

Meanwhile, President Putin, according to Ad-Diyar, passed a message to President Assad saying Hezbollah’s entry into the conflict in Syria is “not helpful.”

In the same message, Putin told Assad that Russian could compensate Syria by handing it efficient, powerful weapons to fight the rebels, including the latest in helicopters and attack aircraft. But Moscow prefers that Hezbollah stay out of the war in Syria, because it believes the organization’s involvement would weaken Syria’s position.

Two senior intelligence officials in Washington told Fox News that Assad still has not received the S-300 land-to-air missiles.

A senior official in Moscow was quoted by Reshet Bet a also saying that his country is yet to transfer the missiles to Syria. Nevertheless, he added, it is possible that some parts of the system have been delivered.

According to the official, who is close to the Russian Defense Ministry, Moscow delayed the implementation of the deal has been signed about 3 years ago, but decided to complete it after NATO positioned Patriot missiles in Turkey, near the Syrian border.

 

Update: New reports are saying that Russia will be selling at least 10 MiG-29 M/M2 fighter planes to Syria.

    I’m not sure this report is accurate. It’s true that Israel had prevented Syria from acquiring Russian missiles in the past. However, in a rebroadcast of an arab TV report last night on NBC Assad said that Syria now has Russian missiles. That’s a “game changer.” If true, that makes it more dangerous for the U.S., NATO, or EU to establish a “no fly” zone, and also for Israel to launch preemptive strikes. If the Russian supplied Syrian missiles strike aircraft from any of these nations it will escalate the conflict.

  2. Those that sleep with dogs get up with fleas. How many fleas in a pack of dogs?

  3. Did you know that Damascus Syria has historically remained inhabited from the time of it’s founding until today? Despite military losses it has always been populated. Yet Isaiah 17 states that God will take it away from being a city. That has not happened as of yet. If God chooses to use mans weapons of mass destruction as one of the tools to bring that about then today’s news concerning Assad should get you interested enough to take a longer look at Isaiah 17. I’m not saying it is, but it looks like it could be. In addition Iran continues determined in it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Yet here we are with the clock ticking. In July of 2012 I wrote a small book that lists some of what the Bible says will happen in the end times as well as what will happen during the period known as the seven (360 day) year tribulation and other soon to take place events. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s about 6 or 7 pages, so it’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.

  4. MiG-29 M/M2 These are very serious fighter, I've worked with these aircraft. The only problem is, the pilot must have at least 540 flight hours minimum for this fighter command of to perfection. Syrian pilots do not have the time and experience. Will piloted as agricultural aviation.

  5. What’s it gonna take to get someone to stand up & accomplish something? Iran, Syria are way beyond where any red lines should be. Someone in the international community needs to step up.

    Look out America. Here comes for the new superpower! (We were there all along you just couldn't see us because you were so big).

  7. ..Hey Thanks. I 've been watching this situation closely over the last few years. I feel this is the lead up to the destruction of Damascus as you pointed out. Once Damascus ceases to be a operating city, tribulation is ushered in. Events are moving quickly toward the first of the blood moons in 2014-2015. Certain signs in the heavens concerning Israel. I"m sure you are aware of these 4 blood moons along with a solar eclipse in the past years.
