BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 P.M.) – U.S. President Donald Trump is ready to mediate between Israel and Russia over the tensions caused by the downing of the IL-20 reconnaissance aircraft.

“I will talk if it’s appropriate, when it’s appropriate,” Trump said when a reporter asked him if he was going to talk to Putin about the current tensions. “Yes, I will do that.”

On Monday, September 17th, the Israeli Air Force heavily bombarded the coastal region of western Syria.

During the bombardment, the Syrian air defense fired an S-200 missile towards an Israeli F-16, which used the IL-20 reconnaissance aircraft as cover.

Israel blamed the Syrian military for the downing of the IL-20 aircraft; however, after a week-long investigation, the Russian Ministry of Defense found the Israeli Air Force at fault.

Since then, the Russian Ministry of Defense has announced that they will be supplying the Syrian military with the S-300 air defense system; this was not received well by Israel.

1 week to watch a few minutes of S-400’s radar data on a screen? Seriously? Or one week in damage control mode to put up a dubious narrative covering up the incompetence of VKS, SyADF and the fact IRGC/Hezb used a warehouse close to Hmeimim as arms depot, putting the Russian airbase into Harm’s way in case of strike… Saying the truth would seriously hurt the reputation of these 3 actors, period! Had they been defeated just once, they’d all be dead… Seems they’re still here… You heard about the “Assad must go” curse… Never heard about the “Death to… Read more »
