The head of the MoD of Israel called for an increase in defense spending due to the presence in the SAR of Russia

59
Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman called for an increase in budget spending on military needs in the light of new Middle Eastern realities, including the Russian presence in Syria and the strengthening of Iran, reports RIA News.


Sergei Shoigu and Avigdor Lieberman during the meeting in Israel, October 2017 of the year.

According to the newspaper Ha'aretz, we are talking about allocating “4,8 billion shekels (1,36 billion dollars) over the next three years in excess of defense expenditures limited by coalition agreements at the level of 56,1 billion shekels (15,95 billion dollars) per year.”

Since this agreement was signed, there have been significant changes in the region. We find ourselves in a situation where there are difficulties in meeting our defense needs,
said Lieberman.

He pointed to three factors that changed the situation in the region.

First, this is a massive Russian military presence in Syria, which was not several years ago. Second, the appearance of high-precision weapons some of the enemies of israel. Thirdly, the growth of Iran’s military power, especially the missile program, which worries not only Israel, but also many Arab countries, and its consolidation in Syria,
said the minister.

The armed conflict in Syria has been going on since March 2011. According to the UN, more than 220 thousands of people died during this time. The Russian defense ministry has been conducting a counterterrorist operation in the SAR since September, 2015-Gopo, at the request of the official Damascus.

      At first, this is a massive Russian military presence in Syria, which was not a few years ago ... the minister said

        Very accurate. But Russia is there at the request of the legally elected government in Syria. All other foreign troops according to international documents are AGGRESSORS. And Israeli air strikes, under any pretext, against objects on foreign territory from the same series.
        Everything can be resolved peacefully through negotiations. But a country across the ocean in this oil region needs a permanent CHAOS

          About the article.
          1. The chief of the General Staff said that an increase in the budget of the Moscow Region is not required.
          2. Every minister and defense minister in particular always requires an increase in the budget of his ministry. Liberman is no exception. Will he get the supplement? I think that he will receive, but not 4.8 billion, but somewhere in the region of 2's. By the way, Lieberman significantly increased the allowance of conscripts, and especially in combat units. So the money will be used.

                  Hitler was supported by Krup, the masters of Lufthansa, the American anti-Semite Henry Ford and others. The raw materials were sold to Hitler by the Soviet Union. I have no information about the Jews who financed it.

      Well, the title is the title, and the words of Liberman are the words of Liberman ... -Firstly, this is a massive Russian military presence in Syria, which was not several years ago. What does this have to do with first, and only then for some reason high-precision weapons of the enemies of Israel and the strengthening of Iran ...
      Personally, it’s strange for me that not the worst and by no means the most stupid Minister of Defense of Israel puts in the forefront the presence of the Russian military contingent in the SAR and not the strengthening of Iran. And this despite the fact that constant contact has been established between our defense departments as well as top officials and almost the whole range of issues related to the Russian presence in the UAR are quickly resolved.
      By the way, the Russian Federation is also little interested in the strong strengthening of Iran both in the SAR and in Lebanon, because Iran, having felt its strength and permissiveness, can suddenly change its attitude towards the presence of the Russian air forces in Syria. Therefore, the Airborne Forces and Air Defense of the Russian Federation in the ATS do not work out on “Unknown planes and missiles” arriving at Hezbollah’s warehouses in the ATS.

      And here (according to Lieberman), the Russian military presence comes first ... request

      Aron Zawi Today, 10:13. And what does the title do not like? Israel apparently wanted to chop off part of the Syrian territory for its breeding during the war in Syria, and then a bummer. Sad when someone upsets your plans? Or is it better for Israel to join the Russian Federation? Why not? Then Russia will not threaten Israel at all. And Israel will be able to extract oil in the vast Siberia! Not high tech? Well then, Israel will build modern production in Russia. Again you do not want? In vain. Indeed, from the entry of Israel into the Russian Federation, all will be only one buns and no problems! Even Arabs will not scare Israel!

    Firstly, it is a massive financial presence in Russia from Israel, which was not 25 years ago.
    Secondly, the appearance of NATO units and heavy weapons, led by the United States, a strategic ally of Israel, on the borders of Russia.
    Thirdly, the growing influence of the Zionist States of America from the flesh of Izrail to politics, economics, and the moral and psychological atmosphere in Russia, with the goal of removing Putin, with the subsequent bloody division of the country into pieces ...

    I read komenty, some kind of insanity on Jews reciprocating directly. But now, essentially, that Lieberman asked for money, not the fact that they will go to the Israeli army, because before that the Jews went to the Saudis, it means the case in SYRIA, but what about Syria? The end of the military phase of the assassination of Assad’s power (the troops and politics of the Russian Federation is coercion to TALKS of the intra-Syrian diaspora), now everything will go into the political plane (and this is considerable money), I think the Jews’s natural desire is to have “obedient militants” of non-destroyed VKS and advanced in negotiations with the authorities (naturally in conjunction with the Saudis and Amers). There is a desire and money (maybe the professor is right, they will give exactly half what they requested, well, from the USSR, ask for more, they will give half anyway), so there will be 2 fractions of Iran, Turkey, Russia and 2 Israel on the sidelines of some SYRIAN DUMA The Saudis and the USA, there is still a layer in the form of Europe, Qatar, China, which, as problems arise, will adjoin one or the other.

    Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman today visited the central campus of the Taasia Avirit concern (“Aviation Industry”).
    The defense minister was shown various weapons systems, strategic and tactical, including the Eitan and Shoval drones, the Hec 2 and Hec 3 missile defense systems, and the Barak 8 anti-aircraft missile system, and radar installations, offensive and defensive missile systems, cruise missiles and observation satellites.
    During the visit, Avigdor Lieberman said:
    "The State of Israel faces new challenges daily, with new, even more deadly and dangerous threats. In order to ensure the safety of Israeli citizens, it is necessary to maintain a qualitative advantage. We will never have an advantage in terms of size or population. Quality advantage means human resources and technology. The combination of these two factors guarantees the future of the State of Israel. Investing in security is an investment in development and the economy of a country. "
