Moscow will bolster Syria's air defence with a S-300 system and jam radars of military planes striking from off the coast of the Mediterranean following the downing of a Russian plane, its military chief said. But last week's crash, which killed 15 Russian service members, had forced Russia to take "adequate retaliatory measures" to keep its troops safe. The system will "significantly increase the Syrian army's combat capabilities", he said.
In September 2001, Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon and Russian President Vladimir Putin jointly in Moscow condemn "terrorism", of which both countries say they are victims.
Russian Federation launched its campaign in Syria to support President Bashar Assad in 2015, and though the involvement turned the tide of war in favour of Syrian government forces, Moscow has since tried to play a careful balancing act, maintaining good ties both with Iran and Israel.
Bolton added that at least some of the 2,000 USA troops in Syria will remain until Iran leaves, expanding the rationale for the American deployment which has the blessing of the U.N.as a means of defeating ISIS.
Israeli security forces examine the remains of an F-16 Israeli war plane near the Israeli village of Harduf, Israel February 10, 2018.
An Israeli military statement said the raid by its fighter jets last Monday had targeted a weapons manufacturing facility in Latakia where weapons were "about to be transferred on behalf of Iran" to Hezbollah. It could embolden the Syrian regime to fire even more aggressively at Israel's air force.

Although the threat is growing to Israel's freedom of operation around Syria, the IAF is capable of working around it. It fires missiles from trucks and is created to shoot down military aircraft and short- and medium-range ballistic missiles.
But Russian anger over the incident in Syria still remains a major issue for Israel, especially since it could complicate IDF efforts to block Iranian military activities north of Israel's northern border. It already exists in Syria since Moscow deployed it-and its more advanced version, the S-400-to protect Russia's own bases and port. But the Russian military came out on Sunday, renewing the accusations against Israel.
He also once again explicitly claimed that Israel was responsible for shooting down the Russian plane, stating, "According to our military experts, the reason for the downing was intentional actions by Israeli pilots".
Earlier in the war, Russian Federation suspended a supply of S-300s, which Israel feared Syria could use against it. Mr Shoigu said Russian Federation is now going to go ahead with the shipment because "the situation has changed".
Bolton told reporters in New York: "There shouldn't be any misunderstanding here ..."
But François Heisbourg, a French defence analyst and a former defence official, said he presumed the S-300s would be operated by Russians, not Syrians.
Assad has been eyeing a purchase of the more advanced S-300 systems for years.
