Trump says wants U.S. to leave Syria soon

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman warned in response to the reports that if S-300 systems were delivered to Syria and used against Israel, they would be destroyed.

"One thing needs to be clear: If someone shoots at our planes, we will destroy them".

The Russian military has said it will soon deliver new air defense systems to Syria in light of missile attacks launched on alleged Syrian chemical weapons facilities by the United States, Britain, and France almost two weeks ago.

Russian President Vladimir Putin speaks during a joint press conference with his Turkish and Iranian counterparts after their meeting on Syria issues at the Presidential Palace in Ankara, Turkey, on April 4, 2018. The most significant upgrade that Russian Federation could provide to enhance Syria's ability to shoot down jets and cruise missiles would be its S-300 and S-400 systems.

Responding to Russia's claims of U.S. missiles failing in the Syria strike and the capture of downed missiles, something the Pentagon has denied, Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon told Business Insider "both claims are completely and totally untrue".

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

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

Israel warned that Russian Federation should not provide modern missiles to Syria.

Russian Federation is a key ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

He said the requests have come from all areas of Syria, neighboring countries and even globally.

"What's important to us is that the defensive weapons the Russians are giving Syria won't be used against us", Lieberman told Israeli news website Ynet.

Amid the escalating rhetoric, Russia's ambassador to Israel on Wednesday sought to downplay tensions between the two countries saying that Moscow's deployment of air defense systems in Syria was not related to Israel.

The delivery of advanced air defense systems to Syria, such as the Russian-made S-300 would mark a major change in Syria's defense capabilities.

"That doesn't mean we should stop", he said.

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.
