  • Russia Hints It May Provide Advanced Air Defenses To Syria

An earlier visit took place on Saturday after the inspectors were delayed for days from getting to the town, just east of, over security reasons.

Russian General Sergei Rudskoi on Wednesday made a number of bold claims about the April strike on suspected Syrian chemical weapons sites, essentially saying the U.S. was all but totally defeated by Syrian defenses.

The OPSW visit to Douma and sample collection would allow the worldwide watchdog to proceed with an independent investigation to determine what chemicals, if any, were used in the attack.

Syrian facilities targeted by the strikes of the United States and its allies were not used for storing chemical weapons and the samples taken from there confirm this, chief of the Russian General Staff's main operations directorate, Colonel-General Sergei Rudskoy said. Before and after the US -led hit against Syrian facilities, Russian officials issued repeated but unclear warnings that Moscow will respond in support of Assad's forces.

Syria has denied carrying out such an attack and its close ally, Russian Federation has insisted that the entire attack was staged and the claims related to it are made up. They repeatedly blamed the rebels and opposition activists for possessing and deploying chemical weapons.

Meanwhile, over the past week, complaints about Jackson were quietly reaching senators on the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee. In fact, you had President Obama basically saying that Admiral Jackson was poised under pressure, that he should be promoted.

Russian diplomats said that they plan to bring evidence of this to the Organization of the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

The gruesome footage from the apparent April 7 attack horrified the world and prompted unprecedented Western strikes on Syrian military installations.

The spokesperson reiterated that if Russia's claims were true, "we certainly would have seen proof by now, consistent with the Russian propaganda machine's normal modus operandi".

Also the interlocutor of the Agency said that the air base is working as planned.

Israel's defense minister Avigdor Liberman told the Ynet news outlet on Tuesday that if the S-300 or any other Russian system were used to target Israeli jets, it would retaliate. "We are concerned they may have tampered with it with the intent of thwarting the efforts of the OPCW fact-finding mission to conduct an effective investigation".

Put in to bat, the visitors received the early blow when Avesh dismissed opener Aaron Finch (2) in the second over. Kings XI had left out Chris Gayle and the opening pair of Aaron Finch and KL Rahul failed to get going for them.

Israel has not taken sides in the Syrian civil war, but its air force has carried out dozens of airstrikes during the fighting, majority believed to have been aimed at suspected arms shipments to Hezbollah.

Would it be better for Israel to stop bombing Syria given that S-300 systems are purely defensive weapons?

According to an unconfirmed report by the South Front " analytics and intelligence" website, the Russian airbase was attacked by two drones armed with projectiles, which were launched by one of the militant groups from northern Latakia or the southern Idlib province of Syria. Syria has only occasionally fired on Israeli warplanes, and then only when they are raiding Syrian airspace and bombing Syrian targets.

Russian military sources told Kommersant that if Israel tried to destroy the anti-aircraft batteries, it would be "catastrophic for all sides".
