IAF Syria Strike 'Hit Russian S-125 Missiles'

The reported IAF strike in the Latakia region of Syria on October 31 targeted an advanced Russian-made missile system that could be upgraded to the much-vaunted S-300 system, reports IsraelDefense, citing researcher Ronen Solomon. Satellite photos of the site, on Syria's northern Mediterranean coastline, prove that the alleged IAF strike targeted S-125s that were in the process of being upgraded from a less sophisticated system. The photos were taken a few hours before the site was hit, by a firm providing satellite services to the US defense system.
