Will supply of S-300 to Syria harm Russia-Israel ties?

Iraqi activist Hajjar Youssif hands out masks to protesters for a demonstration last week in Basra

In addition, Moscow will equip the Syrian command posts of formations of air defense automated control systems, which were previously used only in Russian Federation.

Russia has made a decision to arm its Syrian partners with an advanced anti-aircraft weapons system and to target the electronic systems of any military aircraft that launches strikes in Syrian territory, the Russian defence ministry said Monday in response to losing a spy plane last week.

"A modern S-300 air defence missile system will be transferred to the Syrian armed forces within two weeks", he said, significantly increasing the combat capabilities of President Bashar Al Assad's forces.

"It is quite clear that the missile was targeting the Israeli jet", he noted.

This move is in response to a Syrian missile inadvertently shooting down a Russian plane last week, killing 15 Russians on board.

Israel disputes the Russian findings and says its jets were back in Israeli airspace when the plane was downed.

Who is Julie Swetnick, Michael Avenatti’s Client and Latest Kavanaugh Accuser?
He posted both a photo of Kavanaugh's newest accuser, Julie Swetnick , and a court document with details of the allegation. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) reacted on "Outnumbered Overtime" to the third sexual misconduct accusation against Brett Kavanaugh .

"I expressed to him our deep regret over the loss of the crew of the Russian plane that was brought down by irresponsible Syrian anti-aircraft fire".

However, the radar data shows the Israeli jet fighters had continued to patrol the area off the Syrian coast following the incident, Konashenkov said.

Syria's current air defenses lack the highly-classified signal Russian planes send to their own air defenses to identify them as friendly.

Moscow accused Tel Aviv of failing to inform Russia about its impending attack on targets in Syria, which resulted in a downing of the Russian electronic warfare aircraft by Syrian return fire.

Russian Federation launched its campaign in support of President Bashar Assad in 2015, eventually turning the tide of war in favor of Syrian government forces.

The Russian plane was furthermore flying at a much higher altitude than the Israeli F-16's which were flying at very low altitude to avoid being hit by the S-200 missiles which are known to be ineffective against low flying aircraft.

Jimmy Butler wants to be traded to Heat, report says
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN , the Timberwolves are asking for proven veterans, future assets, cap space and prospects. The four-time All Star has indicated to the Minnesota Timberwolves that Miami is his preferred trade destination.

Russian Federation launched its campaign in Syria to support President Bashar Assad in 2015, and though the involvement turned the tide of war in favor of Syrian government forces, Moscow has tried to play a careful balancing act, maintaining good ties both with Iran and Israel.

"The information provided by the Israeli military.runs counter to conclusions of the Russian defence ministry", the Kremlin said of the call, adding that the actions of the Israeli pilots had led to the plane being targeted by Syrian air defence systems.

The bottom line is this: if the Russians do deliver the S-300 to Syria, this is indeed a bad news for Israel, but not a threat that will prevent the air force from carrying out its missions.

"Supplying the S-300 increases the risk from unprofessional Syrian operators to Russia's air forces first and foremost, to Israel, to the United States and the coalition, and likewise to civil aviation", Amos Yadlin, a former Israeli military intelligence chief, wrote on Twitter.

The Russians are now quiet about the fact that their military in Syria misread the unfolding battle and initially reported that a French frigate was involved in the attack against the Iranian missile facility in Latakia.

President Vladimir Putin discussed the decision by phone on Monday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Kremlin said.
