Amid Israeli attacks on Syrian territory, Russia allowed the Syrian military to use the S-300 air defense system.
Against the background of how Israel was repeatedly seen for striking at Syria despite the previously reached agreements between Russia and Israel, the source of the resource Avia.pro reported that the Syrian military received permission to use its air defense systems in case of the slightest threat from Israel , provided that the Syrian side bears responsibility for such actions.
“Russia allowed the Syrian military to put the S-300 on full alert and attack Israeli aircraft in the event of the slightest threat,” the source said.
It is noteworthy that information about this appeared after the day before the day when Israeli F-35 fighters launched new missile attacks on Syrian territory, completely ignoring Moscow’s position on this issue.
Moreover, according to some reports, before the end of this month, the BAVAR-373 Iranian air defense systems, which are analogues of the Russian S-300, and capable of detecting stealth targets, which, incidentally, include Israeli F -35, at distances up to 150-180 kilometers.

The Russian Armed Forces have allegedly given the Syrian military the green light to use their S-300 system against Israeli warplanes that enter their airspace, the Russian aviation publication Avia.Pro reported.
“Against the background of how Israel was repeatedly seen striking at Syria despite the previously reached agreements between Russia and Israel, a source told Avia.pro that the Syrian military received permission to use its air defense systems in case of the slightest threat from Israel, provided that the Syrian side bears responsibility for such actions,” Avia.Pro said.
However, based on what Avia.Pro has reported, the Syrian Armed Forces appear to be reliant on the Russian military to use these air defense systems against the Israeli Air Force jets that violate their airspace.
“Russia allowed the Syrian military to put the S-300 on full alert and attack Israeli aircraft in the event of the slightest threat,” a military source told Avia.Pro.
The effectiveness of the S-300 against the Israeli Air Force has been in question since its installation, as the latter has carried out attacks as far east as the Deir Ezzor Governorate and as far north as Aleppo.
