Israel threatens Syrian regime over Russia's delivery of S-300

Earlier in the day Monday, the daily Kommersant quoted two military sources as saying that Russian Federation would provide S-300 long-range surface-to-air missile systems to Syria ... and said this would make it possible to create "a multi-tier system of air defense in Syria capable of protecting Damascus and air bases from attacks".

"One thing needs to be clear: If someone shoots at our planes, we will destroy them".

The OPCW inspectors should do their work in the Syrian city of Douma without external pressure; Russian Federation will insist that they visit every location concerning the alleged chemical attack in Syria, Sergei Lavrov said.

In an interview with Army Radio, Israeli Minister of Intelligence Yisrael Katz cast doubts on Russia's potential supply of S-300 missile defense systems to Syria, suggesting that the move will undermine Moscow's relations with Tel Aviv.

The Syrian president said that the recent US-led military strikes against his country will not be able to stop the country's war on terrorism.

According to the official, there are two options of delivering the S-300 to Syria.

Chinese President Xi Jinping said Monday that he is looking forward to meeting Russian President Vladimir Putin in June and jointly planning China-Russia ties in a new era. But a second outcome of such an alliance would be to solidify USA relations and our status as the friend to the friendly in the region.

"If anyone attacks us, we will retaliate, regardless of S-300, S-700 [sic] or any anything else's presence there", Lieberman said.

The us leader noted that the U.S. has done nearly all the work against IG in Syria and Iraq.

The president charged that the USA and its Western allies have been supporting the terror groups in Syria since day one of the Syrian war.

A Russian diplomat who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity said Israel had asked Moscow not to supply the Syrian military with the S-300s.
