Russian Federation to send newer, S-300 missile defense systems to Syria

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

But last week's crash, which killed 15 Russian service members, had forced Moscow to take "adequate retaliatory measures" to keep its troops safe. He also said that the new system "will cool down the hotheads [in Israel] and prevent ill-considered actions threatening Russian soldiers".

Putin spoke to Assad by phone Monday and informed him of the plan to provide the missiles, the Kremlin said in a statement.

Russian Federation will provide advanced S-300 missile systems to Syria and directly link up with the air-defence network of its Middle Eastern ally, stepping up support for the regime of President Bashar al-Assad after the downing of a reconnaissance plane last week. Moscow accused Israel of creating risky conditions that caused the crash.

Meanwhile, the Kremlin on Monday accused Israeli pilots of acting deliberately and said the downing of the Russian plane would harm relations between the two countries. Moscow has tried to maintain good relations with Iran, which is also allied with the Syrian government, and Israel, which is wary of Iran's growing influence in Syria.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Putin on Monday that supplying advanced weapon systems to "irresponsible players" would heighten dangers in the region, according to Netanyahu's office.

The reconnaissance plane's downing "was indeed preceded by a chain of tragic accidents", Peskov said, but this chain was set in motion "largely by the deliberate actions of Israeli pilots".

Israel's military said in a statement its jets "did not hide behind any aircraft and that the Israeli aircraft were in Israeli airspace at the time of the downing of the Russian plane".

"The command posts of Syrian air defense forces and units will be equipped with automated control systems only supplied to the Russian armed forces".

The missile system, originally developed by the Soviet military, but since modernised and available in several versions with different capabilities, fires missiles from trucks and is created to shoot down military aircraft and short- and medium-range ballistic missiles.

Alexander Khramchikhin of the Moscow-based Institute of Military and Political Analysis said the S-300 could "seriously affect Israel's ability to carry out its strikes in Syria".

Moscow first announced that it was considering reversing its longtime policy against supplying the S-300 system to the regime following a series of airstrikes against Syrian targets by the United States, United Kingdom and France in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack by Assad.

Just hours after Bolton's remarks, Defense Secretary James Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon that "there is no daylight" between his position on Syria and Bolton's.

Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Liberman warned earlier this year that Israel will respond with force if anyone shoots at Israeli planes.

A spokesperson for the Israeli army on Monday declined to comment on Moscow's S-300 delivery.
