Russia Says It Delivered Advanced Missile Defense System To Syria Despite Objections

Russia says it has delivered an S-300 surface-to-air missile-defense system to Syria, despite objections from Israel and the United States that the arms sale will escalate the Syrian civil war."The work was finished a day ago," Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu told President Vladimir Putin during an October 2 meeting broadcast on Rossia-24 TV.Shoigu contended that the system would improve the security of Russian military personnel in Syria and said it will take three months to train the Syrian military to operate the new system.Putin ordered the military to supply the system to Syria after the downing of a Russian reconnaissance aircraft last month by Syrian antiaircraft fire in an incident that Russia blamed partly on Israel, which was staging air raids on Iranian targets in Syria at the time.
