  • Netanyahu Urges Putin Not to Supply Iran with Missile Defenses – Elhanan Miller
    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday, expressing Israel’s “grave concerns” regarding Russia’s decision to provide Iran with advanced antiaircraft missiles. Netanyahu told Putin that the S-300 deal “will only encourage Iranian aggression in the region and further undermine the stability of the Middle East.”
    Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Tuesday, “This sale of advanced weaponry to Iran is the direct result of the dangerous deal on the table between Iran and the P5+1. Can anyone still seriously claim that the deal with Iran will enhance security in the Middle East?”
    Security experts called the potential deployment of the system by Iran a hindrance but not a game changer. Israel Channel 2 TV on Tuesday said Israeli pilots have trained against the S-300 in recent years, with the cooperation of friendly nations that have the system. (Times of Israel)
