Russia to provide Syria 10 MiG-29's; Netanyahu warns Putin

Russian sources say that their country will provide Syria with 10 MiG-29 fighter planes. The timing of the delivery was not disclosed. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Netanyahu warned Russian President Vladimir Putin that Israel will stop the Russians from setting up the S-300 missile defense system in Syria.
On Friday, journalist Ali Branstien reported in Hebrew daily Ma'ariv that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu hinted in his meeting earlier this month with Russian President Vladimir Putin that Israel will prevent the Assad regime of making the S-300 missiles operational.
The paper reported the Russians were "shocked" from the prime minister's "boldness." Sources that were briefed on the meeting told Ma'ariv that Putin had "understood exactly what Netanyahu meant," and that "it came as no surprise to Moscow" when National Security Adviser Yaakov Amidror warned European diplomats Israel might take such an action.
Well, at least there's still someone left in the world who doesn't kiss up to the Russians.... 

By the way, the MiG-29 is not the most recent edition of the fighter jet.
