Former Israel Defense Minister: 'Our Air Force Can Deal With' Russian Missiles in Syria

Former Israeli defense minister Moshe Arens said that he doubts Russia transferred missiles to Syria, but if it turns out the weapons were transferred, " our Air Force can deal with them":
"I would be very surprised (you are talking about the S-300 anti-aircraft missile) – if the Russians actually transfer these missiles to Syria as I think that they know that it will turn out that our Air Force can deal with them. This wouldn’t be good publicity for a product that is their export product. They are selling this product to many countries and it won’t help their export," said Arens today in a radio interview.
