Russian Federation reportedly plans to deliver air defense systems to Syria

"If someone would shoot at our planes, we will destroy it", said Lieberman.

The Russian military has indicated it will supply the Syrian government with a sophisticated air defence system, after condemning a missile attack launched by the US, Britain and France earlier in April.

In addition to the American-led coalition's strikes against Assad targets, Israel has increasingly carried out air raids in Syria, which it says are meant to prevent the transfer of advanced weaponry to the Hezbollah terrorist group and halt the military entrenchment of Iran in the country.

According to Rudskoi, most of the missiles fired by the three countries were destroyed by the S-125, Osa and Kvadrat missile systems, which were designed in the Soviet Union about 40 years ago but were upgraded with the assistance of Russian experts.

Russian President Putin described the missile attack on Syria on the night of April 14 as an act of aggression. However, they managed to track down the people who had taken part in the shooting of the footage, which the White Helmets passed off later as confirmation of the alleged use of a chemical warfare agent.

"I think that the usurper and occupying Zionist regime [Israel] will sooner or later receive the necessary responses which will make them regret their deeds".

Israel warned that Russian Federation should not provide modern missiles to Syria.

Pahon said Russian Federation has yet to produce credible photographic evidence of downed Tomahawk missiles in Syria. Previous reports had said Moscow could supply Damascus with the S-300 system, a development that has troubled Israeli officials as the surface-to-air missile can lock onto targets deep inside Israeli airspace. In the interview, Lieberman said Russian Federation already has air-defense systems in Syria.

The House passed by voice vote a bill Tuesday ensuring that the regime of Bashar al-Assad won't get any US taxpayer funds slated to help Syria.

Russia's Defense Ministry announced Wednesday that the planned delivery of an S-300 air defense system to Syria will be completed in the "near future", They did not provide an exact date, though Russian Federation is interested in shoring up Syria's air defense capability.

The S-300 and S-400 systems present a definite danger to hostile aircraft and are advertised as equally competent at taking out cruise missiles, but questions remain over whether they can stop airstrikes.

"This is why we opposed so resolutely the Iran deal, because it gives Iran a clear path to a nuclear arsenal", Netanyahu said.
