Israel Deploys Anti-Missile Systems on Syrian Border – Reports

The reported downing of an Israeli F-16 in Syria on February 10 cut short the country’s long-term aerial dominance in the region: that was the first Israeli plane lost in 35 years, since 1982 – the time of the Israeli war in Lebanon.
 
The Israeli military has deployed anti-missile systems, as well as “missile defense batteries” on the northern part of country’s border with Syria, near the city of Baka al-Gharbiya, the Jerusalem Post newspaper reported Monday, citing eyewitnesses.
As the media outlet specifies, some witnesses posted alleged photos of “trucks carrying the batteries on central highways in northern Israel.”
According to the newspaper, on early Saturday Israel also deployed eight warplanes to target positions inside Syria.
