BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – The Russian military has established a no-fly zone over the Latakia province of western Syria, Russian Senator and former Air Force commander Viktor Bondarev stated on Monday.

“The establishment of a no-fly zone over the Russian military base in Latakia will prevent a repeat of the IL-20 aircraft tragedy,” Bondarev told the Russian Federation’s Council this evening.

“After creating a no-fly zone in Latakia, it is necessary to announce that any unauthorized objects in the sky over Hmeimim Airport will definitely be eliminated,” he added.

The Russian senator would add that the S-300 will not only be deployed at the Hmeimim Airbase, but also, in several parts of the country.

Earlier this evening, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke on the phone to discuss the current situation in Syria.

Reports from Moscow indicated that Putin informed Netanyahu that Russia does not accept Israel’s version of the events that took place on the night of the September 17th.

Russia expects its relations with Israel to remain the same, despite the upcoming delivery of the S-300 air defense system to Syria.

338laputa : Not being related to IDF, I can’t tell about what they will do, thus… This is what I would do in the place of Israel : 1.) Wild Weasel AKA “SEAD” AKA “DEAD” = Destruction of Enemy Air Defences. 2.) Massive aerial campaign against IRGC and Hezbollocks and not only in Syria. The bad thing is only that IDF intended to spare SAA from being hit, only targetting IRGC and Hezbollocks terrorists. Since SyADF will try to stop Israel from enforcing UNSC Res.1701 by disarming Hezbollocks, they will unfortunately become legitimate targets too. It’s even why I saw… Read more »

Moderation pending, 338 laputa. Shortly : it will just make matters worst, and not for IDF. It’s SyADF which will pay the price for it.

“Russia expects its relations with Israel to remain the same”…of course, why would Israel become a ‘reliable’ partner now? They will still be the lying, backstabbing murderers they’ve always been, so no, their relations won’t change. Watch your back is the order of the day.

Sadly Israel put the Russian plane in the line of fire, not caring for the lives of the Russian servicemen.

Israel never takes orders, It gives them.
