According to uncofrimed report in foreign media, Israel Aerospace Industries’ Rampage missile was used to attack Syrian military base on Saturday, successfuly overcoming the advanced S-300 interceptor

For the first time Israel fired advanced Rampage stand-off air-to-surface missiles against Syria in a recent attack in order to over the advanced Russian-made S-300 interceptor, foreign media reported on Wednesday.

Israel reportedly attacked Iranian assets in a Syrian base near Hama on Saturday morning, destroying several military installations. Israel did not assume responsibility for the attack, by satellite imagery indicated an attack took place.

According to the foreign media reports from Wednesday,  Israel used the supersonic missile Rampage, developed by the Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), and it effectively hit its intended targets, essentially neutralizing the S-300, which has been recently transferred to the Syrian military.

Israel has repeatedly stressed that it would do everything it could to prevent Iran from establishing a foothold in Syria, even if that means military attacks. This has often led to friction with Russia.

In September, following an Israeli attack, Syrian forces accidentally shot down a Russian aircraft off the coast. Moscow said Israel was indirectly responsible for incident, and proceeded to transfer the advanced S-300 air defense system to the Syrian regime.
