Syrian military to be trained to use Russian S-300 systems within three months

It will take three months to train Syrian specialists to use Russian S-300 air defense systems, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Tuesday at a Russian Security Council meeting chaired by President Vladimir Putin.

"We have finished personnel recruitment and have begun to train them," he said.

So far, Russia has supplied Syria with 49 equipment pieces as part of delivery of the S-300 air defense system, Shoigu said.

"In conformity with the presidential decision, we have begun to carry out a number of measures to reinforce Syria’s air defense systems in order to ensure better protection for our servicemen. We have completed the delivery of S-300 systems. It included 49 pieces of equipment, including radars, control vehicles and four launchers," he told a Russian Security Council meeting chaired by President Vladimir Putin.

According to the minister, the delivery was finished a day ago.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation; until the transition has begun to hand off the system to trained Syrian military, it will be Russian military personnel who will be operating this equipment.

I would like to hope that both the US and Israel are not stupid enough to believe that they can continue to strike targets within Syria with impunity, and without running the risks of having their jets blown out of the sky.

These systems are suggested to be able, potentially, to detect stealth vehicles from a considerable distance away, and neutralize them:
