Finally, he said Russian Federation would send S-300 missile defenses into Syria in the "near future", something that would bolster the country's defenses. Undoubtedly, Israel's attack on Syria's T-4 base, where people were killed, should be considered an aggressive act as well, the political scientist told Pravda.Ru.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who was traveling in China, said later that a final decision on the S-300s had yet to be reached, but the intent to shore up Syria's porous air defenses was clear.

However, Russia, Iran, and the United States have reportedly attributed the April 8 attack to Israel. "We are looking forward to the day when we can use this material, because the reconstruction of Syria must include acknowledging, investigating and prosecuting crimes".

"We want to beef up our capacities to look in much more details to these requests", he said.

Kommersant noted that while Jerusalem has yet to respond to the current reports that Moscow will supply Syria with the anti-aircraft system, whose range extends into Israel itself, former high-ranking military officials, including the ex-head of military intelligence Maj.

Top Russian officials said that in light of the airstrikes on Syria earlier this month, Moscow may reconsider a pledge it gave a decade ago not to provide Syria with the S-300 system. Syrian air defences destroyed 70 out of 100 missiles that the coalition launched.

The S-300 and S-400 systems present a definite danger to hostile aircraft and are advertised as equally competent at taking out cruise missiles, but questions remain over whether they can stop airstrikes.

Israeli officials only warned the USA of the strikes. "Certainly, one should be prepared to see more provocations, although we have warned our United States and European counterparts who participated in that adventure", he said.
