Russian S300, S400 Air-Defense Systems Ready to Hit Enemy Flying Objects in Syria’s Airspace

‘A recently-released satellite image showed that an active air defense base in Syria equipped with the most advanced S300 and S400 air-defense systems is ready to give harsh response to any possible assault.
