BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:50 P.M.) – The Russian military allegedly moved their S-300 air defense system near the front-lines of the U.S. Coalition forces in eastern Syria, Saudi-based Asharq Al-Aswat claimed, citing diplomatic sources.

“In the past days, Russia began moving some parts of the S-300 sophisticated system to Deir Ezzor, a step that would make the flyover of coalition planes (in missions) against ISIS east of the Euphrates River more difficult,” the Asharq Al-Aswat sources claimed.

The Syrian and Russian forces have not yet commented on these claims by the publication.

On October 1st of this year, the Russian Federation delivered the S-300 air defense system to Syria.

The move to deliver the S-300 system to Syria came just two-weeks after the downing of the IL-20 reconnaissance aircraft off the coast of Latakia.

This is a good move and will protect the border with Iraq from any US ‘accidental’ attacks on the SAA 🙂

The move is useless.they won’t attack us forces in that area…the last time they did, more than 300 Russians were killed while the US troops were not scratched at all. so I believe they have learnt their lessons,if not, they will be taught the lesson again

That terrorist training camp most definitely needs s300 presence.

“”…would make the flyover of coalition planes (in missions) against ISIS…””

pretending that uncle samuel is not arming/aiding and even airlifting the ISIS terrorists to safety when they are in danger from the legitimate syrian assad forces.
