US Concerned About Suspected Iranian Arms Shipment to Syria

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman warned on April 24 that if Syria uses Russian-made air defense missiles against Israel, it will strike back.

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

The Damascus sky lights up missile fire as the USA launches an attack on Syria targeting different parts of the capital early Saturday, April 14, 2018.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who was traveling in China, said later that a final decision on the S-300s had yet to be reached, but the intent to shore up Syria's porous air defenses was clear.

"Now that this outrageous act of aggression was undertaken by the US, France and United Kingdom, we might think how to make sure that the Syrian state is protected", he added.

There is no shortage of reasons to be concerned about the entangled drama unfolding in Syria, as Russian Federation maneuvers on a shifting landscape that could see Israel and Iran collide in a direct confrontation.

It's not the first time the Jewish state struck at Iran in Syria, but with Russia's mounting involvement there this week's action was seen as jeopardizing its relations with the Vladimir Putin regime. Thousands of Douma residents left the town after the attack while Russian military police and Syrian security forced deployed in Douma, raising criticism from opposition activists the evidence may be tempered with.

Col. Gen. Sergei Rudskoi said Russian Federation will supply Syria with "new missile defense systems soon".

The United States, France, and Britain have blamed President Bashar 's government for the April 7 attack, which Syrian activists said killed more than 40 people.

Shein said that he "can't imagine" a scenario in which Russian Federation and Israel would come to direct blows in Syria.

"Based on it, a number of changes have already been introduced into the air defense system of the country, which will further increase its reliability", Rudskoy said. Syrian air defences destroyed 70 out of 100 missiles that the coalition launched.

The S-300 PMU-2 "Favorite" version of the anti-aircraft systems will be provided to the Syrians for free and very soon, the Kommersant reported.

"The Neocons are Selling Koolaid Again" by retired U.S. Army Col. W. Patrick Lang is a worthwhile read. "But we want to leave a strong and lasting footprint, and that was a very big part of our discussion", Trump said at a joint news conference with French President Emmanuel Macron at the White House.
