IAF Destroys Syrian Missiles

Good riddance:

Israel made an air attack on Syria this month that targeted advanced anti-ship cruise missiles sold to the Syrian government by Russia, US officials said.

The officials, who declined to be identified, said the attack occurred on July 5 near Latakia, Syria's principal port city. The target was a type of missile called the Yakhont, the officials said.

A spokesman for the Israeli Prime Minister, Mark Regev, declined to comment on the strike, as did George Little, the Pentagon spokesman.

This makes no difference to Russia, since presumably they've already received payment. It ought to make a big difference to Israeli navy, the only likely target of the 2,000KPH missiles.
