Russian Federation subsequently canceled the deal after Western countries insisted Moscow should not ship its air defence systems to Damascus. He said Israel is concerned about moves by Iran and Syria, not Russian Federation.

However, Syrian Ambassador to Russia Riyad Haddad said that S-300 missile systems had been delivered to Syria last month.

And now, according to Sputnik, the investigators, who spoke with Russian General Staff Col. Gen. Sergey Rudskoy, revealed that they had found no evidence of chemical weapons in the remains of research facilities that were supposedly integral to the Syrian Army's chemical weapons program. 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. On Wednesday, Russian diplomats said they plan to bring evidence of this to the Organization of the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. The U.S., France and Britain also blamed the Syrian government and launched joint punitive airstrikes targeting suspected Syrian chemical weapons facilities on April 14. Syria and Russian Federation, a key ally of Assad, strongly deny the Syrian government was behind the attack.

Against this backdrop, Israel is warning Russian Federation that air defense systems to be delivered to Syria will be in the Israeli air force's cross hairs.

The US Department of Defense has seen no verifiable proof to support Russian claims of having in its possession intact Tomahawk missiles captured in Syria, department spokesperson Eric Pahon told Sputnik on Wednesday.


According to political scientist Andrei Koshkin, head of the department of political science and sociology at the Plekhanov Russian Economic University, Israel was anxious in 2010 as well, when Russia and Syria agreed on the supplies of S-300 air defence systems.

Those tests will determine whether or not chemical weapons were used. More recently, Israel has warned that it will not accept a permanent Iranian military presence in Syria. "The only ones to act against us are the Syrians".

With fighting still raging and the northern rebel-held province of Idlib in danger of becoming a new crisis zone, European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini urged Russia, Iran and Turkey to use their influence in Damascus, saying they have a "special responsibility" to establish a cease-fire and to press Assad to return to the negotiating table.

"One thing should be clear: If someone fires on our planes, we will destroy them", Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said in an interview with the Israeli website Ynet.
