Russia has put a stop on plans to sell MiG-31 fighter jets to Syria, according to the country's Kommersant newspaper. The plans were reportedly halted due to pressure from Israel, an unidentified source from the Russian defense industry said. The report added that Moscow had agreed in 2007 to sell eight of the jets to Damascus for between $400 and $500 million.
