BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 A.M.) – An Iranian official heavily criticized the Russian Federation on Thursday for leaving their S-300 system ‘inactive’ during the Israeli attack last Sunday.
The head of Majlis (parliament) national security and foreign policy commission Heshmatollah Falahat-Pisheh said on Thursday afternoon that the Russian S-300 system, which is deployed in Syria, was inactive during the Israeli attack on Damascus, the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) reported this morning.
Following his return from Ankara, Falahat-Pisheh told the Islamic Republic News Agency that Russia is allowing Israel to attack Syria.
He said that if the Russian S-300 system could operate correctly, the Israeli military would not be able to strike Syria so easily.
Separately, Falahat-Pisheh told IRNA that Israel’s statistics on the Damascus attack were not correct, adding that they were highly exaggerated.
“I reached an area and I noticed that the statistics declared by the Zionist regime were not correct and they were bluffed,” he told IRNA today.
