By Friday morning the empty bravado ended as Syria’s allies have stopped their reports of an alleged Israeli airstrike. – This may be to protect the Syrian alliance from embarrassment, having not used the advanced S-300, admitting what was destroyed during attack or by explaining the reported 34 Iranians eliminated in Kiswah.
A senior Israeli official put to rest worries that since Syria accidentally downed a Russian intel-gathering plane during an IAF attack on Iranian targets in Syria, the introduction of S-300 anti-aircraft missile batteries have not curtailed continued IDF operations.
