Russia to supply S-300s to Syria, jam navigation over Mediterranean

Advanced S-300s will be delivered to Syria within two weeks and Mediterranean navigation jammed in response to “Israel’s role in downing the Russian Il-20,” Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Monday. The s-300 is capable of intercepting air threats at a range of more than 250 kilometers and simultaneously hitting several aerial targets,” Shoigu said. “Russia will also jam satellite navigation, on-board radars and communication systems of combat aircraft, which attack targets in the Syrian territory, in the regions over the waters of the Mediterranean Sea bordering with Syria,” he added.
