WASHINGTON: Russia’s announcement it is deploying its most hi-tech air defense system to its base in Syria is raising “significant concerns” for the U.S. military, a U.S. official said on Wednesday.

Russia says it is sending S-400 anti-aircraft missiles to Latakia in northwestern Syria, in a move that comes after Turkey shot down a Russian fighter jet on Tuesday.

The S-400 missiles have a range of about 400 kilometers (250 miles), posing a potential threat to U.S.-led coalition planes.

So now only those aircraft which Russia let to will be able to fly over Syria.
