    From my experience , S300s have the ability to shoot modern jets down quite frequently. The danger is that if iran shoots israeli jets down they will quite a significant number of israeli captives. Imagine that the IDF (with all my respect to the IDF) has failed to retrieve Shalit from Gaza during operation cast lead that lasted for 3 weeks, how bad the situation will be with iran if it got like a dozen israeli captives. I think that we should be very careful. S300s can be operated by a group of three people and don't need a construction base, but rather a wheeled vehicle, and hence are very simple to use and can be mobilised quite easily. Israel should not allow Iran to have these anti-aircraft missiles
