Russia to sell jets, air defense systems to Syria

May 15, 6:22 AM (ET)

MOSCOW (AP) – The head of Russia’s arms-trading agency says the nation
has signed contracts to deliver fighter jets, air defense systems and
armored vehicles to Syria.

Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation chief Mikhail
Dmitriyev said Russia will sell MiG-29 fighter jets, Pantsyr
short-range air defense systems and armored vehicles. He didn’t give
any numbers or provide any further details.

The statement late Friday carried by Russian news agencies confirmed
earlier media reports that worried Israel.

Previous Russian sales of advanced anti-tank missiles and other
weapons to Syria have irked Israel, which said that some landed in the
hands of the militant group Hezbollah.
