Syria should receive at least ten fighter jets from Russia, according to the manufacturer MiG weapons. Moscow media doubted, however, that the regime advanced S-300 missiles have been delivered.
“A Russian arms manufacturer has said it is signing a contract to deliver at least 10 fighter jets to Syria. Sergei Korotkov, general director of the MiG company that makes the jets, told Russian news agencies Friday that a Syrian delegation was in Moscow to discuss terms and deadlines of a new contract supplying MiG-29 M/M2 fighters to Syria. Korotkov did not say how many MiGs Syria were buying, but says it would be “more than 10.” Russia has previously said that it would only fulfill outstanding arms contracts with Syria.”
