Israel accused after Russian spy plane lost over Syria

The supply of S-300s to Syria will "calm down some hotheads" whose actions "pose a threat to our troops, " he said.

Shoigu said the S-300 would be delivered to Syria within two weeks.

"We think introducing the S-300s to the Syrian government would be a significant escalation by the Russians and something that we hope, if these press reports are accurate, they would reconsider", Bolton said.

'In regions near Syria over the Mediterranean Sea, there will be radio-electronic suppression of satellite navigation, on-board radar systems and communication systems of military aviation attacking objects on Syrian territory, ' he said.

Israel denied this version of events and its air force commander flew to Moscow following the incident, which Putin called the result of a "chain of tragic accidental circumstances". Russian Federation will also jam the electronic communications of aircraft attacking targets in Syria, he said. In a call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last week, Putin didn't outline any retaliatory measures, agreeing only to prevent such steps in the future, the Kremlin said in a statement at the time.

While Putin did not appear to blame Israel outright for causing the Russian plane to be shot down, the Kremlin said it told Netanyahu that Israel had violated Syrian sovereignty and urged it "not to let such situations happen again".

Harry Kane rested by Gareth Southgate as England manager rings changes
The home side overcame a hard first 20 minutes in the second half to look the more likely team to score in the second period. England's Luke Shaw was injured after jumping for the ball with Spain's Dani Carvajal .

This move is in response to a Syrian missile inadvertently shooting down a Russian plane last week, killing 15 Russians on board. A Russian Defense Ministry spokesman described Israel's actions leading to the shoot-down last week as "ungrateful", given what he said were Russian accommodations to Israeli requests, including relocating Iranian troops from the border of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights and providing Russian patrols in the area.

Russian Federation is the main ally of Syrian President Bashar Al Assad, who Israel has repeatedly targeted.

'According to information of our military experts, the reason (behind the downing) were premeditated actions by Israeli pilots which certainly can not but harm our relations, ' Peskov told journalists.

Israel has fiercely lobbied against Russian Federation providing Syria with S-300 air defense systems. Israel has launched at least 200 strikes at Iranian and Hezbollah facilities in Syria over the past years, and has maintained a hotline with the Russian military to prevent any collisions.

A spokesperson for the Israeli army on Monday declined to comment on Moscow's S-300 delivery.

A computer simulation released by the Russian Defense Ministry, Sunday, September 23, 2018, purports to show Israeli jets near a Russian reconnaissance plane, in red, off Syria's coast before it was accidentally shot down by Syria forces responding to the Israeli air strike.
