Lieberman says Israel will destroy Syrian air defense systems if targeted again

Israeli defense minister Avigdor Lieberman on Sunday threatened to destroy Syria’s air defense systems if Israeli jets were again targeted by president Bashar Al-Assad’s regime forces, after a rare clash over the weekend.

“The next time the Syrians use their air defense systems against our planes we will destroy them without the slightest hesitation. Israel’s security is above everything else; there will be no compromise,” Lieberman said on Israeli public radio.
