Russia has announced plans to provide Syria with an advanced S-300 missile defense system. The move comes just days after Syrian missiles accidentally shot down a Russian military aircraft, killing 15 crew members. The downing occurred as Israeli jets attacked targets in Latakia province. Israel and the United States decried Russia’s move, describing it as a significant escalation to the war.
