Russian air defenses shot down a target over Syria

The Syrian air defense was able to successfully shot down 46 cruise missiles that the US, France and the United Kingdom fired at it on April 14, a senior Russian military commander says, rejecting American claims that all of the missiles hit their targets.

Russia will supply the Syrian regime with new air defense systems in the near future, the RIA news agency reported Wednesday, citing the Russian Defense Ministry.

The development is part of an ongoing clash of narratives between the West on one side and Syria and Russian Federation on the other concerning the suspected attack.

"It would be unconscionable for USA government funds to be used for stabilization or reconstruction in areas under control of the illegitimate Assad regime and its proxies".

Israel has recently warned Iran against any moves to augment its military presence in Syria, where Iranian military advisers and militias have long provided critical support to Assad in his seven-year civil war against Sunni rebels. These people seen dying in the footage are alive and well, and in this way Russia wants to "unmask" the "unforgivable lies" over the incident, Alexander Shulgin, Russian ambassador to the OPWC, said to British news sender ITV News.

The report did not specify which air defense systems Russian Federation was planning to deploy to Syria, where Moscow is propping up embattled forces loyal to President Bashar Al-Assad.

Russian Federation is planning to deliver new air defense weapons to Syria in the near future, General Sergei Rudskoy stated on Wednesday, April 25, as quoted by RIA.

According to South Front, the Russian Pantsir-S1 airbase systems shot down two drones armed with projectiles that had been launched by a militant group. In the interview, Lieberman said Russian Federation already has air-defense systems in Syria.

If Israel attacks the new air defense systems, then it will suffer "catastrophic consequences", the officials said.

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.

After dealing with up to 50 requests for missing Syrians, the Red Cross has said thousands more people have sought its help in recent months.

Israeli officials only warned the US of the strikes.
