DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:50 P.M.) – Russia has reportedly asked Tehran to be provided with access to Noyeh airbase in northwestern Iran to be used as an interim airfield for its fighters while conducting missions in Syria.

According to ANNA News Agency which reported the story, Russian had earlier used the same airbase when its long-range bombers were refueled at Noyeh before  resuming its flight to bomb the Islamic State in eastern Syria.

The Russian and Iranian defense agencies have neither confirmed nor denied the report.

This comes after the Syrian air defenses mistakenly shot down a Russian IL-20 plane while intercepting Israeli F-16s.

As a result, Russia announced that the S-300 anti-aircraft system will be activated in Syria in two weeks.

S-300 will be active within a few days not within 2 weeks. The 2-week info is just a buffer before it is officially announced. Just like the delivery of them. Deliver then announce. Activate then announce.
