Lieberman: If Syria uses Russian air defense missiles against us, we'll retaliate

Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman warned Tuesday that if Syria uses Russian-made air defense missiles against Israel, the IDF will strike back.


"What's important to us is that the defensive weapons the Russians are giving Syria won't be used against us," Lieberman told Ynet, talking about Russia's plans to give Syrian President Bashar Assad S-300 missiles. "If they're used against us, we'll act against them."


The defense minister went on to say that Israel "doesn't interfere in Syria's internal affairs, but on the other hand we won't allow Iran to flood (the country) with advanced weapons systems that would be aimed against Israel."
