The Times of Israel: “Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu had announced Wednesday that the system would be deployed in Latakia, in northwest Syria, in response to Turkey shooting down a Russian warplane the day before.
The advanced missile system, completed in 2007, is capable of detecting and destroying aircraft some 400 kilometers (250 miles) away. Its deployment in Latakia will grant Russia aerial control over practically all of Syria, Lebanon and Cyprus, over half of Turkey, parts of Iraq and Jordan — and, of course, Israel:
Planes flying in and out of Ben Gurion International Airport — approximately 395 kilometers (245 miles) from Latakia — would be within Russian sights.”
Opinion: Makes one wonder how Damascus will be destroyed as prophesied by Isaiah 17:1. And to make the matter more complicated, Isaiah’s prophecy calls for the destruction of the world’s oldest inhabited city to happen in 1 night (Isaiah 1:14).
One solution is to deploy the missile systems of the Israeli Dolphin class submarine on patrol in the Mediterranean: On July 14, 2014, Israeli sub-fired missiles destroyed a contingent of Russian-made Yakhont P800 anti-ship missiles stationed at the same Syrian port of Latakia.
Though Russia remains silent on the attack, the report remains unchallenged.
