Russia mulling delivery of S-300 to Syria forces after US-led airstrikes

A top Russian general informed regarding Moscow’s decision although he has said the delivery is still being considered.
Russia may consider supplying S-300 missile systems to Syria and other countries, Colonel-General Sergei Rudskoi said on Saturday after U.S., French and British air strikes on Syria, according to Reuters.
Rudskoi said the U.S. actions in Syria were aimed at destabilizing the situation in the region.
This comes as the Russian President Vladimir Putin had earlier warned that the strike in Syria will exacerbate humanitarian catastrophe.
In the meantime, reports indicate that Russia has called for an emergency session of the UN Security Council over the US-led strikes in Syria.
The United States, France, and Britain launched airstrikes against the Syrian regime in the early hours of Saturday morning.
The US Military’s Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford has said a scientific research centre near Damascus, a storage facility and command post also near the capital and a chemical weapons storage facility near Homs were targeted during the airstrikes.
