Syria says new air defences will make Israel think twice

Syria says new air defences will make Israel think twiceA top Syrian official has said a new air defence system from ally Russia will force Israel to “think carefully” before carrying out any more air strikes in the country. Moscow announced on Monday it would deliver the advanced S-300 air defence system, a week after the Syrian military downed a Russian plane by mistake following an Israeli air strike. Russia has blamed the friendly fire on Israeli pilots using the larger Russian plane as “cover”.
