Russia "Exasperated" With Ongoing Israel Attacks Against Syria

Russia has “run out of patience” with Israel in Syria and is shifting its policies toward Israeli sorties over the country, according to an unconfirmed report on Saturday.

The London-based Arabic newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat cited an unnamed “well-informed” Russian source as saying that following talks with Washington, Moscow had got the impression that “Washington does not welcome the continuous Israeli raids,” and thus believes it has the freedom to act more aggressively to thwart them.

In light of this, the Russians were now supplying Syrian forces with more advanced anti-missile systems and know-how, making them more capable of shooting down Israeli armaments, the report said.

It claimed the effect of this was already being seen, with Syrian air defenses shooting down seven of eight Israeli missiles during a July 19 Israeli raid.

There was no outside confirmation of the Arab newspaper’s report.
