• Syrian army to receive S-300 missile system and new radar jamming technology
  • It comes after Syrian Soviet-era missile shot down a Russian plane by accident
  • Putin and Assad discussed delivery of S-300 system on the phone on Monday

Vladimir Putin has given Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad a new air defence system following the downing of a Russian plane that Moscow blamed on Israeli pilots.

Under orders from the Russian President, the Syrian army will receive a new S-300 surface-to-air missile system as well as new radar jamming technology.

The additional security measures come after a Syrian Soviet-era S-200 missile shot down a Russian military plane by mistake, killing 15, in an incident last Monday that Moscow blames on Israel.

The Syrian military has already been trained to use the system, which was set to be sent over in 2013, but was held up ‘at the request of Israel,’ Shoigu said.

‘In regions near Syria over the Mediterranean Sea, there will be radio-electronic suppression of satellite navigation, on-board radar systems and communication systems of military aviation attacking objects on Syrian territory,’ he said.
