Russia to supply missiles to Syria, despite Israel protest

Russia still intends to go through with an arms deal with Syria including the sale of advance anti-ship rockets, despite recent attempts by Israeli and US officials to thwart the planned deal, Russian Defense Minster Anatoly Serdyukov said on Friday according to state news agency RIA Novosti.
The deal includes the sale of advanced P-800 Yakhont supersonic cruise missiles to the Syrian military.
Israel considers this weaponry capable of posing a significant threat to its navy vessels in the Mediterranean Sea.
