Syria to Buy Latest Air Defense Systems from Russia

The Syrian government is in the process of purchasing the latest Russian air defense system, President of Syria Bashar Al-Assad told the government-run Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) recently.

Assad made these comments to SANA just hours after the Israeli Air Force launched airstrikes near the Damascus International Airport.

“It is natural for us to negotiate with the Russians now with a view to strengthening (our) systems, whether to face any Israeli threats from the air or the threats of American missiles.”

“That has become a real possibility after the recent American aggression on Al-Shayrat air base in Syria,” Assad also said.
