Iran Demands Russian Protection From Israel in Syria But Russia Says They Are Protecting Israel..But Are They?

On Thursday, the head of the Iranian parliament’s national security and foreign-policy committee, Heshmatollah Falahat-Pisheh, expressed anger on Thursday at Russia for not using their advanced S-300 anti-air defense system to protect Iranian military assets in Syria from the Israeli airstrikes that devastated them earlier in the week.

“The Israelis claim their actions are against Iran, while they are attacking Syrian infrastructure, security and defense installations,” Falahat-Pisheh said to Iranian media. He went on to say that Russia was responsible for not activating countermeasures against Israeli warplanes while they flew over Lebanon.

“There is a serious criticism of Russia for deactivating its S-300 air defense missiles when the ‘Zionist enemy’ strikes from Lebanon,” Debka File, an English language Israeli military intelligence website reported Falahat-Pisheh as saying. He went on to accuse Russia of cooperating with Israel.

“If the Russian air defense worked properly, Israel would not be able to easily launch strikes over Syria,” Falahat-Pisheh said. “There seems to be some form of coordination between the Zionist regime’s strikes and Russia’s air defense system in Syria.”

You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
