Earlier Monday, Moscow announced new security measures to protect its military in Syria, including supplying the Syrian army with an S-300 air defence system and jamming radars of nearby warplanes. Moreover, the Israelis misinformed the Russians about the location of their targets.

Following the incident, Russian Federation made a decision to supply an S-300 air-defense system to the Syrian military.

"According to information of our military experts, the reason (behind the downing) were premeditated actions by Israeli pilots which certainly can not but harm our relations", President Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists.

The missiles are expected to be transferred within two weeks. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu also said Russian Federation planned to jam radars of military planes striking from off the coast of the Mediterranean.

President Trump's top advisor on national security matters also reiterated his warning that any future chemical weapons attack attributed to the Syrian military - a basis already cited twice for recent U.S. airstrikes on Syria - would be met with a harsh response.

So, how will this incident impact the Russia-Israel relationship? However, the Syrian military has already received training to use the system.

Syria's Ambassador to Russia Riyad Haddad said following the announcement that Damascus required the S-300 "in order to defend Syrian land from Israel's aggressive actions".

"The command posts of Syrian air defense forces and units will be equipped with automated control systems only supplied to the Russian armed forces".

Putin and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad discussed the additional measures and delivery of the S-300 system on the phone Monday, the Kremlin said.

Trump began his Friday morning with a Twitter eruption from Las Vegas, where he had spent the night after a political rally. She told the newspaper that she discussed the alleged assault in 2012 when she attended couples therapy with her husband.

Russian officials said the move is part of President Putin's plan to bolster security for Russian troops in Syria. But it blamed Israel for creating risky conditions that caused the crash.

Israeli fighter jets conducted the airstrike last Monday night on a weapons facility in the coastal city of Latakia that the IDF said was going to provide weapons to the Hezbollah terror group and other Iranian proxies.

Israel and Russian Federation have been embroiled in a tense diplomatic row since the downing of the Ilyushin Il-20 electronic surveillance aircraft last week, during an Israeli air strike near the Syrian city of Latakia.

Bolton said a political process was needed but said Russia's plans on the missile system made that hard.

"One thing should be clear - if someone fires on our planes, we will destroy them", Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman was reported as saying last April. "It doesn't matter if it's an S-300 or an S-700", he said.

Israel has long lobbied Moscow not to provide the S-300 to Syria, fearing this would hinder its aerial capability to strike buildups of Iranian and Hezbollah forces in Syria. It said that the Israeli Air Force gave the Russian side less than a minute's warning before their air raid, leaving virtually no time for any safety maneuvers.

But Shoigu said that the Israeli military warned Russian Federation about last week's strike just one minute before launching it and claimed it was being conducted in Syria's north.
