Report: Russia completes Syrian air defenses, troubles Israel, U.S.


(Worthy News) - Russia has completed a comprehensive air defense system in Syria that constrains the United States' ability to operate in the country and in the eastern Mediterranean, according to a new report published by the Washington-based Institute for the Study of War.

The report paints a stark picture of increasing Russian entrenchment in Syria as Putin and the west have squared off in recent days over naval confrontations in Ukraine.

The Russian moves include the deployment of S-300 and S-400 missiles and other weapons systems as well as electronic warfare capabilities in Syria. Underlying the Kremlin's efforts, the report claims, is a wider push to force American troops to withdraw from Syria. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]

  1. Putin has set up a system to stop any Iranian aggression against Israel and to defend the nearly destroyed (by the Pentagon and CIA) nation of Syria.
    Of course many in people would like to claim that ANY Russian presence is probably Israel.
