Russia: Syrian air-defence is significant

23 December 2012 18:27

Russia’s Ground Forces Air Defense commander Major General Alexander Leonov stated that the air defense system of Syria is capable of repelling potential massive airstrikes against the country, a senior Russian commander says.

“Syria’s air defense system is a no-nonsense force and that’s why no one ever used serious air operation against it,” the commander added.

Leonov also said that the insurgents in Syria have appointed the air-defence systems as prime targets.
