Syria Receives Russian Air Defense

Russia has sold advanced S-300 Air Defense System to Syria's President Bashar Assad-led government, disregarding the U.S. and allies' (especially Israel) request to stop arms sales to the regime.Moscow reports that four batteries of S-300 systems with 100-150 simultaneously deployable, guided anti-aircraft missiles have already been shipped to Syria complete with Russian military "adviser" crews. Israeli sources said the Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) may have to act on "developing" circumstances in Syria. The S-300 missiles would pose an immediate threat to Israeli air force (IAF) aircraft flying in the area.
