  • Description

    Israeli Chief of Staff, Lieutenant-General Hayim Bar Lev disclosed at a Press Conference in Tel Aviv on Tuesday (July 6) that Soviet crews have fired missiles at Israeli Jets.

    General Bar Lev indicated that Soviet crews may have already fired SAM-3 Missiles at Israeli aircraft, and that he believed Soviet personnel may have died during Israeli bombing raids on Egyptian SAM-2 batteries behind the Suez Canal.

    He said Israeli pilots reported that at least two rockets, which appeared to be of the more sophisticated SAM-3 type, had been fired at them.

    The Israelis say the new missile system consists of about a dozen SAM-2 batteries supported by at least two SAM-3 batteries, manned to the best of their knowledge by Soviet personnel.

    They believe the SAM-2 missiles are manned by Egyptians, but assert that in every battery there are some Soviet personnel.
