BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 A.M.) – Washington is “very concerned” about who controls Syria’s newly supplied S-300 air defense system, the U.S. envoy to Syria James Jeffrey told reporters on Wednesday.

“We are concerned very much about the S-300 system being deployed to Syria. The issue is at the detail level. Who will control it? What role will it play,” Jeffrey said.

“Our immediate effort is to try to calm that situation down and then move on to a long-term solution,” he continued.

The U.S. diplomat then said that he hopes Russia will continue to allow Israel to act freely against the Iranian forces in Syria.

“Russia has been permissive, in consultation with the Israelis, about Israeli strikes against Iranian targets inside Syria. We certainly hope that that permissive approach will continue,” the US diplomat noted.

More Bullshit from the crazy zionists. Of course the S300s are used to defend Syrian interests, and not israhellIs.

The guy talks as if he had any legal right to allow what Syria does inside Syria.

He better shut up. IDF have no right to attack anyone in Syria.
