Israeli Air Strike on Syria Updated Yet Again

This story just doesn't die. It seems that almost everything is being linked to the mysterious air strike.
In a Defense Update article on the Russian navy in the Med, the author speculates that one of the reasons the Russian aircraft carrier is making a port call in Syria is to investigate the Israeli's EW usage during the operation. The Russian's are allegedly boosting their presence to increase their intelligence gathering in the region. Makes sense, seeing as the Russian navy has been in such a funk since the breakup of the Soviet Union. Although I doubt the Sixth Fleet is losing much sleep over a single small carrier that has no operational experience.
