Israel Deploys Anti-Missile Systems On Syrian Border
The Israeli military has deployed anti-missile systems, as well as “missile defense batteries” on the northern part of country’s border with Syria, according to reports.
The move comes a day after the Syrian army shot down an intruding Israeli F-16 warplane.
Press TV reports: The Jerusalem Post on Sunday cited witnesses as saying that they had seen convoys of “missile defense batteries” north-bound near the city of Baka al-Gharbiya. It said others had posted photos of “trucks carrying the batteries on central highways in northern Israel.”
The report said the Israeli army had “refused to comment.”
Early on Saturday morning, reportedly eight Israeli warplanes were deployed to target positions inside Syria. The Syrian military, which has previously absorbed occasional Israeli strikes, activated its air defense systems and shot down at least one Israeli F-16.
