  • Russia to provide Syria with 10 MiG-29 fighter planes
  • Levrov criticizes UN over resolution condemning Syria
  • Jerusalem’s Dormition Church suffers suspected ‘price tag’ attack

The head of aircraft maker MiG said on Friday that Russia was counting on providing Syria with 10 MiG- 29 fighter planes and was discussing details with a Syrian delegation. It did not say when they might be delivered. Meanwhile, there were contradicting reports in Russia on when Moscow is scheduled to deliver the S-300 anti-aircraft missiles to Syria. Russian foreign minister Sergei Levrov criticized US back draft resolution condemning Syria’s government use of chemical weapons ahead of debate at UN Human rights council.

The Church of the Dormition in Jerusalem was vandalized and tires of two vehicles parked outside it were punctured overnight Thursday in a suspected “price tag” attack. The words “Jesus is a monkey” and “Havat Maon”, the name of an illegal outpost built by settlers that was dismantled by the state this week, were sprayed on the holy site on Mount Zion, just outside the walls of Jerusalem’s Old City. The vandalism was discovered Friday morning.
