Zaman Al Wasl has established that the Russians have first deployed S-400 batteries at the Hmeimym airbase, and now deployed additional ones near Masyaf city in northwestern Syria.

Netanyahu treated the Trump move on Iran just as he had done the Obama pro-Iran move, by openly criticizing what has been the US President's most significant deal with Russia.

Prime Minister Hariri, who is a power sharing partner with Hezbollah under Lebanese law, remained silent (not to mention embarrassed), but Nasrallah didn't hold back.
