TAW: Silence of Russian S-300s in Syria plays against Iran


February 25, 2021 USA inflicted a missile and bomb attack on alleged allies of Iran in eastern Syria, which killed at least 17 people. This attack is the first major action by the Joe Biden administration. The international community of alternative media unanimously condemned him, but many suspected of the silence of the Russian S-300 air defense systems Moscow's game against Tehran, writes The Alternative World (TAW).


The Russians bypass the issue of using the S-300, although in the past few years they themselves have been promoting the idea of ​​protecting the sky of the SAR from the encroachments of other states. Perhaps this is just a psychological operation, which should calm down public opinion inside the Russian Federation, agitated by the death of 15 Russians in September 2018 - the crew of the RER Il-20M aircraft. Then the Syrian air defense, hunting for Israeli Air Force fighters, mistakenly hit him.

In 2015, Moscow and Tel Aviv agreed on a "pact on conflict resolution." This did not affect the actions of the Israeli Air Force, they continue to bomb Syria, conditional on the destruction of the Iranian military and pro-Iranian forces. Russia, as before, officially condemns the actions of the Israeli aviation, but in reality does nothing to stop the raids.

This explains why the military SAA still has not received control over the existing S-300. They would have used air defense systems against the Israeli Air Force, which could further inflame the situation and, according to Russia, even lead to the situation in the region getting out of control.

Moscow wants to conclude a deal, according to which the Iranian military and pro-Iranian forces will leave the territory of the SAR, and Tel Aviv and Washington will leave Damascus alone. Russia officially recognizes the legality of Tehran's presence on Syrian soil, as there is permission from the Syrian authorities, but continues to prevent the use of the S-300 by the SAA military personnel to repel attacks by Israel and the United States. The Russians hope that American and Israeli strikes will force the Iranians and their allies out of Syria.

On the eve of the American raid, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrova and Israeli Foreign Minister Alon Ushpiz met in Moscow. Probably Tel Aviv is playing the role of a mediator between Moscow and Washington and has warned the Russians about the planned strike. This is just an assumption, but the fact that the S-300 has never been used to defend Syria since it appeared there is a fact.

    Another nonsense of the next online edition.

    Russia has not signed up to defend the skies of Syria.
    Otherwise, one small but cunning state would simply have lost its airfields. wink

    We are improving the air defense of Syria and there is some progress.

      Why didn't it lose in 1967 and especially in 1973? But then the USSR (not like the current Russian Federation) fully signed up and took part, in particular, pilots and air defense crews. And the 200s returned to the USSR. whether it "signed" or not.

      Rather, one large and powerful state would once again be beaten, would lose bases on the territory of the former Syria, and its leader in front of the cameras would talk about a stab in the back ...

    There is a rational grain in the article. The Iranian-Israeli showdown does not concern us. Russia is not interested in the presence of Iranians in Syria, as well as in the construction of a pipeline from Iran. But I doubt that they would have so directly "hindered the use of air defense systems. Rather, there is no complex system yet, open areas are like holes in cheese. And there is no incentive to quickly change the state of affairs.
    And this is also embarrassing ...

    On the eve of the American raid, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrova and Israeli Foreign Minister Alon Ushpiz met in Moscow. Probably Tel Aviv is playing the role of a mediator between Moscow and Washington and has warned the Russians about the planned strike. This is just an assumption, but the fact that the S-300 has never been used to defend Syria since it appeared there is a fact.

    There was information that the Americans themselves warned about the impending strike ... 4 minutes before the start ...
    Is it an Israeli edition?

      The war has been going on in the country for ten years.
      Exhaustion.
      Now the Syrians really have to cover the troops, combat-ready.
      Again, the process is underway. smile

        From whom to cover? Assad's opponents do not have aviation, and the Israelis and Americans will immediately stop strikes on Syrian territory as soon as the Iranians and their proxies leave it.

                  Binder... He takes bribes, covers up criminals, clung to power not to tear him away ... You do not consider him a dictator, because he is not an Arab, but a Jew.laughing

                  And for the Arabs, he is a real dictator who took the country away from them and established national laws.

                  In a civilized country, be Israel such a country, they do not steal other people's children in order to pass them on to the families of rich Jews. The dictatorship of the strong over the weak.

                  Only now, thanks to the courage and great patience of the Yemeni citizens of Israel, they were able to obtain compensation for the terrible crimes committed since 1948.


                  Affected families Israel will pay 162 million shekels. It has been proven that 1050 Yemeni families or so were affected. hi

                        We have Arabs in the government, rising to the rank of generals in the IDF, occupying other significant posts in various. public and private structures. The Iranians cannot be in any way in a claim to Israel, our leaders do not call for the destruction of Iran and do not try to organize bridgeheads near its borders. And how the Israelis offended the Azerbaijanis is an insoluble mystery, on the contrary, Israeli weapons helped Azerbaijan to win a victory in Karabakh and, as it turns out, to protect Baku from an Armenian attack with a Russian-made Iskander missile.

                        The conflict between the secular and the religious has been dragging on since the early years of the Jewish state. The idea of ​​creating a "new man" pushed the socialist leadership of Israel to a terrible crime, says Rabbi Dr. Mikhail Finkel in the ITON.TV studio. laughing

                        How unequivocal does the state's recognition of its guilt in the story of the "abduction of Yemeni children" in Israel 70 years ago and the announcement of the payment of large monetary compensation to the members of the "affected" families look? Did they "steal" or save Yemeni children? Can the incident be called the "Yemeni Holocaust"?

    much here is inaccurate the last Israeli strike on Syria was completely unsuccessful thanks to the use of old obsolete Buk missiles and other means, the only explanation is that after warning the Zionist bandits, the Russians are now actively helping and supporting the Syrian and Iranian resistance with help in finding a target and destroying missiles without any Russians pulling the trigger it is clear that this is a new strategy that was adopted after the arrogance and immoral cowardly behavior of these Zionist scumbags in Israel and America Russia will not deceive Iran, they are allies in many areas and all these collaborations are very profitable and beneficial for Russia and the Eurasian Union and the Belt and Silk Road
