Syria: Russian aviation pushes Israeli fighters

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The Russian Air Force is said to have pushed Israeli fighters on Thursday evening, as they tried to launch a new raid on Syria, the Avia aviation site said.

“Last night, when Israel wanted to launch another round of attacks on the outskirts of Damascus, Russian fighter jets took off from the Russian Army Hmeimim Air Base in the province of Latakia. south of Syria, which has disrupted Israeli attacks on the Syrian capital and its environs,” reported Avia.

According to Avia.Pro, the Russian army also provided the Syrian armed forces with information on an Israeli drone that was preparing to hit the southeast suburbs of Damascus.

“According to the data, at least two fighter planes took off from Hmeimim air base around 8 am. in the southeast direction, after which, in unknown circumstances, an Israeli drone that violated Syrian airspace was shot down and subsequently there was no attack on the suburbs of the capital Syrian people,” they continued.

“It should be noted that, according to Western media, during a meeting between Vladimir Putin and Benjamin Netanyahu, the Russian leader threatened to take action against Israel if Tel-Aviv continued to hit Syria,” Avia added.

If that were true, it would be the fourth time since the end of August that the Russian army blocked the Israeli attack on Syria.
