An earlier CENTCOM Press Release claimed that Russia had knowledge that the United States were going to begin airstrikes in areas of Deir Ezzor. This has been flatly denied by the Russian side.

In response, Moscow has called for an urgent United Nations Security Council meeting and for Washington to explain its actions.

“If the airstrike was caused by the wrong coordinates of targets than it’s a direct consequence of the stubborn unwillingness of the American side to coordinate with Russia in its actions against terrorist groups in Syria,” Konashenkov of Russia’s Defense Ministry said.

“Immediately after the airstrike by coalition planes, Islamic State militants launched their offensive. Fierce fighting with the terrorists is currently underway in the area of the airport where for a long a time humanitarian aid for civilians was parachuted,” Konashenkov continued.

Have the Russians been giving compromising information on the SAA to the U.S.? The U.S. could be using this info to target the SAA more. The Syrian government and army should refuse any deals which prevents their rights to protect themselves.

@leithfadel If the Pentagon notified Russia before attacking the SAA at Deir, they can show the notice. It doesn’t exist.

The radar was jammed by the attacking planes (may an EA-18G Growler). So yes, it might be an older model that can be taken out with electronic warfare (EW).

The S-400 belongs to Russia and is there to protect their forces on the airfield of Latakia. It’s not up to the SAA to make use of it. But Russia could deliver S-300 to Syria and then they can seal their airspace.

Did Russia give the U.S. all the coordinates and other inside info on the Syrian forces as part of the Lavrov-Kerry deal?

Patience of Syrian people with Russian government must have run almost out by now. It seems like Russian military is mainly trying to play a role of UN peace keeping forces. It looks like Russia will never protect SAA from direct attacks by US NATO. S-400 is only there to protect Russian assets.
