Russia has taken a new strategic measure of deploying its S-300 missile defense system to the Tartus naval base in Syria. This move, during the joint U.S.-Russia military operations against ISIS/ISIL in Syria, has brought criticism and skepticism from the U.S.

The allied military venture in the Syrian territory which is aimed at wiping out the threat of ISIS/ISIL, mainly lead by Washington and Moscow, took an interesting turn when Moscow brought in and deployed its S-300 missile defense system in the Russian naval base in Tartus.

Washington has expressed concerns over this tactic arguing that ISIS/ISIL does not bear air strike capability; hence the missile system raises questions.

The Russian defense ministry spokesperson, Igor Konashenkov, stated the Russian point of view in these words, “I remind you that the S-300 is a purely defensive system and poses no threat to anyone.”

Moreover, he expressed the Russian defense ministry’s surprise by adding, “It’s not clear why the placement of S-300 in Syria has caused such a stir among our western colleagues.”

Throughout the course of these military operations in Syria, there have been reports of civilian casualties, particularly pertaining to air strikes conducted by the U.S. and Russia.

Both countries have for the most of the part, categorically denied any such allegations and have insisted upon the strength and seriousness of the targeting measures which according to them ensure minimum to zero collateral damage.

Alongside all of this, the U.S. claims to be well prepared to launch surgical strikes on narrowed out targets of the Syrian regime, which according to them is an unavoidable measure to guarantee abidance of cease-fire agreements.

Reports suggest that the plan includes using cruise missiles fired from coalition ships, targeting selected Syrian army points.
