Philip Breedlove, NATO Supreme Allied Commander, says that the Russian forces in Syria are equipped with air-to-air missiles. "I have not seen ISIL flying any airplanes... these very sophisticated air defenses... are about something else."
PHILIP BREEDLOVE, NATO: We see some very sophisticated air defenses going into the airfields, and we see very sophisticated air \-to-air aircraft going into the airfields.
I have not seen ISIL flying any airplanes that require sa-15s or sa-22s. I have not seen ISIL flying any airplanes that require sophisticated air-to-air capabilities... These very sophisticated air defense capabilities are not about ISIL, but they are about something else.
