The deployment of Russia’s S-300 air defense systems to Syria will strengthen the Syrian government’s defenses and be a positive development, the head of US Mission of the Syrian Democratic Council, the political wing of the Syrian Democratic Forces, told Sputnik.

“We don’t have any concerns about [the S-300 systems]. I think it is up to the Syrian government and the Russian government … They have the deal between themselves and they support Syria with the S-300. I think this is will [strengthen] the defense of the Syrian government [against] any threat to it. It is not bad,” Sinam Mohamad said.

On October 2, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that Russia had completed its delivery of new S-300 systems to Syria, including 49 units of systems-related equipment such as radars, basic target acquisition systems, command posts and four launchers.

SDF Against Military Solution, Wants New Dialogue With Damascus

The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are hopeful to revive a dialogue with Damascus and are against any military solutions, the head of the US Mission of the Syrian Democratic Council (SDC), the SDF’s political wing, Sinam Mohamad told Sputnik.

“As the Syrian Democratic Council, we started the dialogue with Damascus when the Syrian government asked if we are ready to negotiate … and we agreed to that. We went to Damascus twice, and we had a committee there… Now not anymore, [the dialogue] stopped now. We hope that this dialogue will continue for the sake of all the Syrian people, to build a new Syria… It is up to the Syrian government. We are ready again to continue this dialogue and this negotiation with the government,” Mohamad noted.

Why shouldthere be a final showdown as SAA has taken fulll xointrol of yarmouk valley and Suweida region? or meybe there is no full control?


SDC = Kurds. It’s not related. S-300 is in their interest since it has the potential to deter Turkish air raids on them, as it can help if Idlib is to be cleansed from Turks… But it may end a double-edged sword if used to prevent Israelis from intercepting weapons transfers to UNSC-banned Hezbollocks terrorists : snce it can be networked with all other old SAMs and radars, Israelis may end totally demolishing air defences and they really have the means to do this, ending with letting Erdogan the free hand for a full scale invasion of northern Syria… In… Read more »
