Israel's defense chief, Moshe Yaalon, said earlier this week that Russia's plan to supply Syria with the weapons is a threat and that Israel was prepared to use force to stop the delivery.

On Monday, the European Union lifted an arms embargo on Syria, paving way for individual countries of the 27-member bloc to send weapons to rebels fighting to topple Assad's regime. The move raised fears of an arms race in the Middle East.

Israel has carried out several airstrikes in Syria in recent months that are believed to have destroyed weapons shipments bound for Hezbollah. It is not clear whether Israeli warplanes entered Syrian airspace in these attacks.

But with the Russian missiles in Syria's possession, the Israeli air force's ability to act could be limited.

Israel has lobbied Moscow over the planned sale of S-300 air-defense missiles to Syria but on Tuesday, Russia's deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, said his government remained committed to the deal.

The S-300s have a range of up to 125 miles and the capability to track and strike multiple targets simultaneously. Syria already possesses Russian-made air defenses, and Israel is believed to have used long-distance bombs fired from Israeli or Lebanese airspace. The S-300s would expand Syria's capabilities, allowing it to counter airstrikes launched from foreign airspace as well.

Monday's decision by the EU paved the way for individual countries to send weapons to Assad's outgunned opponents. The EU's move may have little impact on the conflict since no single European country is expected to send lethal weapons to the rebels anytime soon.

Britain and France, the main military powers in the EU, had pushed for lifting the embargo. They have argued that Europe's threat of arming the rebels in the future would force Assad to negotiate in good faith.

Russia, an Assad ally, harshly criticized Europe's decision to allow the arming of Syrian rebels, saying it undercuts international efforts to bring the opposing sides in Syrian conflict together for a peace conference.

Syria claims Russia has started delivering S300 missiles

Syria's president has made an incendiary claim that Russia has begun delivery of a sophisticated missile system that has been described as a "game-changer" in the conflict.

This unhealthy buildup leads to the final hour. Skeptics would like to be proven wrong when it comes to the Bible. This escalation will bring on some unexpected miraculous and inexplicable occurrences, but the status quo will continue anyway for man plays god and has deluded himself into believing that he made himself and so he can also take himself. The suicidal mentality belongs to fools and self-obsessed maniacs for the WAY OF PEACE they do not know. But will they ever get to know it? - Hardly. They will never know it; that's why they are destined (or they have destined themselves) for fire. But as for you my dear reader recognize the times and avail yourself with the supernatural knowledge of peace. 

This book introduces you to a special kind of peace; to faith and why it is so important to not have a blind faith but an educated one. 

Peace heals and restores; it mends and makes one. This kind of peace can even change your biology, your brain and even your genes. 

Your posterity will thank you for getting hold of this very important message .
