(NEWS) Israeli Official: We'll Sell Arms To Russia's Enemies

"Jerusalem angered at sale of Russian cruising missiles to Syria, calls it 'prize for extremist states'

Israeli officials are threatening to sell weapons to 'areas of strategic importance' to Russia after Moscow announced over the weekend that it would go through with the sale of P800 missiles to Syria, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Sunday.

Russia's announcement came after both Israel and the US implored that it abandon the sale. The cruise missiles discussed, dubbed Yakhont, have a range of 300 km, which puts Israeli ships off of Lebanon's coast at risk of being hit by missiles fired from Syria's southern port."
