“After only one battalion of the S-300V4 air-defense system entered combat duty, the intensity of the flights made by the coalition’s air forces in Northeastern Syria has significantly decreased,” he stated, as quoted by the Sputnik News Agency.
The Russian Federation transported the S-300 system to the Syrian military on October 1st of this year.
The move by the Russian Federation came in response to the downing of their IL-20 reconnaissance aircraft, which was ultimately blamed on Israel.
