  • UN warns of surge in attacks on Syrian civilians

Undoubtedly, Israel's attack on Syria's T-4 base, where people were killed, should be considered an aggressive act as well, the political scientist told Pravda.Ru.

Russian Federation had originally signed a contract in 2010 to supply Syria with four S-300 batteries, however after the outbreak of the Syrian civil war the following year and following pressure from Israel, Moscow cancelled the deal.

Further, Russia's Defense Ministry has also accused Britain of direct involvement in staging video images of alleged victims even though the United Kingdom has vehemently denied the accusation.

They also contend that the US-led air attacks only delayed the deployment the inspectors to Douma.

"We want to beef up our capacities to look in much more details to these requests", he said.

That's because on April 13, the US, France, and Britain attacked Syria, firing over 100 Tomahawk missiles at them along with other airstrikes.

"Russia is ready for the closest cooperation with foreign partners" to maintain global and regional security, Putin said in the message. However, this was only limited to Russian military bases.

A Syrian filmmaker says Russian state media have used images from the set of his 2016 movie to claim that video footage from an April 7 suspected poison gas attack in Syria was staged.

While most of the chemical attacks documented by the group are alleged to have been carried out by forces loyal to President Bashar Assad, including most recently in the town of Douma near Damascus, a handful have been attributed to rebel forces and the Islamic State extremist group, said Abdulrahman al-Jaloud, one of the Syrian Archive's researchers.

Lieberman told Ynet that Russian Federation already has air-defense systems in Syria.

He added that Israel will not allow an Iranian foothold in Syria, saying that this is the principle guiding Israel.

Col. Gen. Sergei Rudskoi said in a statement Wednesday that Russian Federation will supply Syria with "new missile defense systems soon". This potential was allegedly concentrated in three Syrian facilities, according to the USA, the United Kingdom and French leadership, Tass reported Wednesday.

According to Russian military experts interviewed by Kommersant, it would take some three months to train Syrian officers to manage the S-300 and during that time, Russian military advisers would be stationed at the batteries alongside Syrian experts.

The S-300 and S-400 systems present a definite danger to hostile aircraft and are advertised as equally competent at taking out cruise missiles, but questions remain over whether they can stop airstrikes.
