(Worthy News) - US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Wednesday the Russian delivery of the S-300 air defense system to Syria was "a serious escalation."
Moscow said on Tuesday that it had delivered the S-300, a decision it took after accusing Israel of indirect responsibility for the downing of a Russian spy plane by Syrian forces as they fired on attacking Israeli jets last month.
Damascus and its big-power backer describe the advanced addition to Syria's arsenal as a major deterrent. Israel and Washington have both voiced misgivings about the S-300 handover. [ Source: Ynet News (Read More...) ]
