Syrian SAMs Target Israeli UAVs
NICOSIA [MENL] -- Syria, in cooperation with Russia, was believed to have
targeted Israeli military unmanned aircraft.
Lebanese sources said the Syrian military was firing surface-to-air
missiles toward Israeli unmanned aerial vehicles that patrol the border
with Lebanon. They said the Syrian operations were coordinated with
Russian military advisers in an effort to stop the persistent Israeli aerial
surveillance amid the Sunni revolt against President Bashar Assad.
