JNS.orgSyrian President Bashar al-Assad said Thursday that Syria “has received the first shipment of Russian anti-aircraft S-300 rockets,” the Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar reported.

“The rest of the shipment will arrive soon,” Assad reportedly said.

Israel fears that Syria’s receipt of S-300 surface-to-air missiles could be a regional game changer, especially if they fall into the hands of terrorist groups like Hezbollah. Earlier this week, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Israel “will know what to do” if S-300s reach Syria.
