Russian Federation to boost Syrian air defence with S-300 system

Russia Increases Tension with Israel by Giving Missile Defense System to Syria

Army Radio said that Cohen was headed to Washington to meet with senior U.S. officials about Russia's decision to send S-300 advanced surface-to-air missiles within two weeks to Syria, which both Jerusalem and Washington have warned would further destabilize the region and increase already high tensions.

He reiterated that Israel won't be deterred from continuing to "defend its security and its interests" and will keep attacking Iranian-affiliated targets in Syria. "And it's not our fault" Shoigu said.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Putin on Monday that "transferring advanced weapons systems into irresponsible hands will increase the dangers in the region".

Netanyahu in the phone call with Putin continued to blame what his office called the "unfortunate incident" on "the Syrian military, which brought down the plane, and Iran, whose aggression is undermining stability".

On Tuesday morning Netanyahu held a special security cabinet meeting and brief the ministers on events with Syria, Russia and Iran.

"We will continue to act to prevent the Iranian military build up in Syria and to continue with the security coordination between the IDF and the Russian army", Netanyahu said.

The decision to deploy the S-300s comes after a Russian military aircraft was shot down over Syria last week during an Israeli airstrike.

A smaller, harder line jihadist faction in Idlib, Huras al-Din, has rejected the agreement and urged rebels to launch new military operations. On Monday, Defense Ministry spokesman Maj.

According to the data, the Syrian air defense's missile was, in fact, targeting an Israeli F-16 jet before it abruptly altered its course and eventually hit the Russian aircraft.

Speaking with reporters at the U.N. General Assembly meeting in NY on Monday, National Security Advisor John Bolton warned that "introducing the S-300s to the Syrian government would be a significant escalation by the Russians".

Russian Federation ordered its plane back to base.

The two militaries cooperate through an emergency hotline to prevent incidents.

Russia plans to immediately arm the Syria with S-300 anti-aircraft systems in response to the accidental shootdown of a Russian aircraft by Syrian forces during an Israeli airstrike last week.

Russian Federation last month hinted it would supply the weapons to President Bashar al-Assad, over Israeli objections, after Western military strikes on Syria. President Bashar Assad's regime is now armed with a range of Russian-made surface-to-air missile batteries (though it lost around half of them to Israeli strikes in recent months).

"The S-300 is one of the world's most advanced and sophisticated anti-aircraft systems and yes it is a challenge for us", Oren said.

The incident was also the worst case of friendly fire between Russian Federation and Syria since Moscow's military intervention in the country in support of President Bashar al-Assad's forces in September 2015.

Russian Federation will now reportedly staff Syrian air defenses to avoid such shoot-downs in the future, but this puts them in harm's way. The province is home to some 3 million Syrians, half of them displaced by violence in other parts of the country.
