As Tensions Rise Electronic Warfare Launched by Russia in Syria

The Russian news media has announced that Russia is intended to transport its electronic warfare with the institution of jamming systems to Syria. This is another Moscow reaction to the Turkish air force attack to Su-24 that brought down a Russian warplane.

Russia also will install in Syria a highly advanced missile system capable of shooting down aircraft from the ground.

Russia’s massive military buildup in the region comes as its forces begin to suffer casualties as a result of the country’s efforts to defend President Bashar al-Assad and combat ISIS militants.

Turkish forces shot down a Russian Su-24 fighter earlier this week for reportedly crossing into the country’s airspace while conducting strikes against ISIS forces in Syria.

"The incident has roiled tensions between Russia and Turkey with Vladimir Putin describing the strike as a stab in the back by the accomplices of terrorism."

Russian Lieutenant-General Evgeny Buzhinsky, in responding to the incident, revealed that Russia will begin using electronic jamming systems that are based both on the ground and installed on special aircraft. The defensive weapons are aimed at stopping a similar attack in the future.

“Regarding the possible impact of this incident on the further developments of the operation in Syria, I think that from now on, our pilots will be more attentive and if the Turks continue behaving in such a manner, Russia will have to resort to electronic jamming and other warfare equipment, including special aircraft with special equipment on board, in order to protect our pilots from being stricken with missiles,” Buzhinsky said, according to Sputnik News. foxnews reported.
