TEL AVIV, May 29. /TASS/. Russia will return Israel a Magach tank lost by the Israeli army in a fight against Syrian forces in the early 1980 during the First Lebanon War, the office of Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reported on Sunday.
"On the instruction of Russian President Vladimir Putin who has responded to the request of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel will get back a tank lost in the battle of Sultan Yacoub [the Beqaa Valley, Lebanon]," the Israeli prime minister’s office reported.
The Magach tank has been used as an exhibit at a museum outside Moscow since the 1980s.
The First Lebanon War, which lasted from June to September 1982, was the scene of fighting between the Israeli and Syrian armies.
