Why Has Israel Sent Russia a Historic Tank?

A Magach-3 Israeli tank firm for a Moscow museum arrived in the collateral Wednesday as partial of an sell between Russian and Israeli governments, the RBC news website reported.

The Russian supervision returned an identical Magach-3 Israeli tank to Israel final month at the ask of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The tank had been sent to the Soviet Union to stand on display at the Kubinka Tank Museum after being prisoner by Syrian infantry in 1982 during the Battle of Sultan Yacoub.

Netanyahu pronounced that the tank is the only remaining earthy justification of the battle, in which several Israeli soldiers went blank and personally thanked Putin for returning the vehicle, RIA Novosti reported. The new tank will mount in the mark where the previous Magach-3 was displayed in the Kubinka museum.

Prime Minister Netanyahu is now visiting Russia for talks with President Putin. This year outlines the 25th anniversary of the resumption of diplomatic family between the two countries.
