From Akram: "In a previous post, I mentioned the efforts of the FSA gangs to destroy the Syrian air defense capabilities. The last week witnessed another chapter of this devastating story when the Free Syrian Army gangs announced destroying the radar station in Marj al-Soultan (East Ghouta). The radar station mentioned by the FSA is more than a simple radar. It's actually, a major aerial reconnaissance station and is one of three major aerial reconnaissance stations covering the Syrian territory and compose the backbone of the country's air defense system. Its main mission was tracking the warplanes taking off from the Israeli air bases and updating the Syrian air defense battalions with its instantaneous location. With this operation, Syria became totally blind against any potential Israeli air attack. More on this story can be read here (Arabic)"
