Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman warned on April 24 that if Syria uses Russian-made air defense missiles against Israel, it will strike back. "If someone fires at our planes, we will destroy them ..."
The West blamed the chemical weaponsattack on the Syrian government, days after which, in retaliation, the USA, United Kingdom and France carried out joint missile strikes on Syrian military bases on April 14.
Transferring upgraded air-defense systems to Syria could be seen as an escalation by neighboring Israel and raises the risk of Israeli attacks. The Pentagon maintains that no Syrian missiles intercepted any USA or allied missiles, and that most of Syria's air defenses fired after the strike took place.
The development is part of an ongoing clash of narratives between the West on one side and Syria and Russian Federation on the other concerning the suspected attack. However, they managed to track down the people who had taken part in the shooting of the footage, which the White Helmets passed off later as confirmation of the alleged use of a chemical warfare agent.

"Russia is ready for the closest cooperation with foreign partners" to maintain global and regional security, Putin said in the message.
