Report: Russia to supply Syria with S-300 missiles


State-affiliated media in Syria have reported that the during a recent visit to Moscow by representatives of the embattled regime, Damascus received promises of widespread Russion support, including in the field of military.


According to a report in al-Watan, which cited unnamed Western diplomats, "senior Russian officials stressed their absolute commitment to continue their support the Syrian in its military attempt to fight terror."


The report also claimed that among others, Russia will give Syria the S-300 missile defense system. In the past reports of such a transfer strained Western-Russia relations, and led to an all time low in Russia's relations with the US.
