BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:45 A.M.) – The delivery of the S-3000 surface-to-air missile defence system to Syria has already begun, revealed Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at a press conference following his headline speech at the UN General Assembly on Friday in New York.

“As we have publicly stated, Israel assured us multiple times that they will maintain the de-confliction channel with us which is similar to the one we have with the USA. That is what we are currently demanding from Israel,” Lavrov began.

“When Israel raised its concerns regarding the Iranian or pro-Iranian units which were deployed virtually on the demarcation border-line with the Golan Heights we reached an understanding. Moreover, by that time the southern de-escalation zone had been liberated from terrorists,” he said.

“The Iranian units withdrew more than 100 km as we had been asked by the Israelis, by the Americans. And instead of them the units of the Syrian army took up positions at the Golan Heights, along the demarcation line, then the UN observers, to be more correct, the UN Disengagement Observer Force officers returned there. Our military police are currently helping them. We satisfied all the concerns raised by Israel about the self-security in the area near the Golan Heights. We kept all our promises,” he continued before turning his attention to the S-300 system.

“The delivery has been started already. And as President Putin said, after that incident […] the measures which we will take will be devoted to ensure 100 percent safety and security of our men in Syria,” said Lavrov.

Actually, slaving SyADF batteries to a S-300 command post would be enough to provide IFF (identification friend and foe) avoiding SyADF to indiscriminately shooting missiles in every direction with the hope of a hypothetical LOAL (lock on after launch).
If the missiles are deployed, it’s very likely that the launchers will be busted by IDF.
