This is coolbert:
There hasn't been anything like this in almost fifty years now!
Israeli and Russian combat pilots in a warplane encounter! [they called them Soviet back in 1970]
Thanks to Sheldon Adelson and his Israeli Internet newsletter Israel Hayom!
"Report: Russian fire at Israeli aircraft sparked PM's Moscow trip"
"The reason for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's impromptu visit to Moscow on Thursday was that Russian forces in Syria have fired at least twice on Israeli military aircraft, Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth reported on Friday. The unsourced report gave no dates or locations for the incidents, nor any indication that Israeli planes were hit."
. . . .
"Separately, Israel's Channel 10 reported that a Russian warplane approached an Israeli warplane off the Mediterranean coast of Syria last week, but there was no contact between them."
NOT since 1970 and the Israeli air force engaging in Operation Rimon 20 has the Israeli and Russian [again they called them Soviet back then] squared off in the skies over the Middle East.
This was all supposed to be straightened out anyhow not so long ago! Consultations between the Russian and Israeli having occurred and agreements reached to prevent "incidents"!!
Is this confusion as during "heat of battle" or what?
