Russia Says Will Deliver New Air Defense Systems To Syria Soon

Russia May Gift S-300 Anti-Air Missiles to Syria to Beef Up Defenses

Russian Federation has also stuck to its claim that Syria's aging air defenses took down 71 of the 105 cruise missiles fired by the USA and its allies.

"What decisions will be taken by the leadership of Russian Federation together with the representatives of Syria have yet to be determined", Lavrov said, but "there is no secret here".

When the OPCW's fact-finding mission arrived in Damascus on April 14, it was delayed during its first entry to Douma by attacks. Syrian state media says government forces are pounding districts of southern Damascus held by Islamic State militants with warplanes, helicopters and artillery in a bid to enforce an evacuation deal reached earlier in the week. The three countries struck Syrian chemical weapons facilities in joint airstrikes a week later.

More than 40 people were killed in the suspected chemical weapons attack in the town. 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. Faisal Mekdad, Syria's deputy foreign minister, said on Monday that his country is "fully ready" to cooperate with the fact-finding mission from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons that's in Syria to investigate the alleged chemical attack that triggered US -led airstrikes.

Hezbollah leader accuses Israel of assassinating Arab scientists
Haaretz reported that Hamas has recruited some 40 Palestinian students to serve as operatives on Malaysian campuses. She said the 30-year-old mother of three was inconsolable despite being surrounded by family and friends.

The Russian military has indicated it will supply the Syrian government with a sophisticated air defense system, after condemning a missile attack launched by the U.S., Britain and France earlier this month.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered his defense ministry to plan for the possible transfer of S-300 anti-air missiles to Syria following the US and allied cruise missile strikes that easily penetrated Syria's Soviet-era defenses.

"Russian specialists will continue training Syrian military personnel, as well as assist in the development of new air defense systems, the deliveries of which will be carried out in the near future", Rudskoy told the news agency. They repeatedly blamed the rebels and opposition activists for possessing and deploying chemical weapons.

Pahon also said Russian Federation has wasted its time by conducting analysis of the strikes by the United States and its allies in mid-April, and urged Moscow to focus its efforts on enabling humanitarian aid deliveries as well as pushing Assad in a direction to peacefully resolve the conflict in Syria.

Salah also became the seventh Liverpool player to win the award in the club's history. We are in the semi-final and we can go to the final.

"One thing should be clear - if someone fires on our planes, we will destroy them", Lieberman was reported by Haaretz as saying.

Russian Federation is a key ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

"We are seeing an escalation in military activities, which is exactly the contrary" to what they promised, Mogherini said.
