 Russian S-300 missile defense system first used against Israeli aircraft

The incident occurred on Friday when the Israeli Air Force bombed several targets near the city of Masyaf in northwestern Syria. As a result of the air strike, the attacked underground facility was completely destroyed, which is confirmed by satellite images.

The S-300 missile defense system opened fire when the planes left the air strike area, therefore they did not pose a real threat to the Israeli Air Force fighters. The Syrian S-300 air defense systems are operated by the Russian military and could not be used without their consent.

If the information about the participation of the Russian side in the shelling of the Israeli Air Force is confirmed, this will be the first case in the course of the conflict. The disturbing incident may indicate a change in Russian policy towards Israel.
