  • Russia to jam signals in Syria and supply regime with more advanced anti-missile technology after plane was shot down

    Golocal247.com news

    Russia has said it is to supply its ally Syria with more advanced anti-missile technology, and jam radar signals in the eastern Mediterranean, after a deadly incident of friendly fire. Moscow will send newer S-300 surface-to-air missile defense systems to Syria within the next two weeks, Sergei Shoigu, defence minister, said in a statement on Monday. The missile system, originally developed by the Soviet military but since modernised, fires missiles from trucks and is designed to shoot down military aircraft and short- and medium-range ballistic missiles. The decision came a week after Israeli F-16 planes struck targets near Moscow’s air base in Latakia, western Syria, prompting the Syrian government to respond. Its unsophisticated air defence missiles instead hit a Russian Il-20 surveillance plane, killing all 15 servicemen onboard. Hassan Nasrallah, head of Hizbullah, threatened Israel after the Jewish state bombed a target linked to the Lebanese Shia group in Syria Credit: AFP Russian officials said Syria's outdated S-200 systems were unable to identify the Russian plane as a friendly one. “This forced us to take adequate response measures aimed at improving the security of Russian military personnel,” Mr Shoigu said. He said the supply of S-300s and so-called "friend or foe" identification technology to Syria will "calm down some hotheads" whose actions "pose a threat to our troops." The missile defence systems had been on order since 2013, Mr Shoigu revealed, but it had been delayed at the request of the Israelis who feared it would be used against them. Mr Shoigu also announced Russia would be blocking satellite navigation, airborne radar and communication systems of combat aviation in the eastern Mediterranean, which could prevent Israel from carrying out sorties off the coast of Syria.  Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, told Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, in a phone call that giving the S-300 to "irresponsible players" would make the whole region more dangerous. John Bolton, Donald Trump's national security advisor, warned Russia that it would be a "major mistake" to provide the Syrian regime with the S-300 system. Mr Bolton also said US troops would remain in Syria as long as Iran keeps forces in the country. The S-300 could also serve as a deterrent against UK, US, or French strikes the three countries have threatened against the Syrian regime in the event of another chemical attack. Russia's defence ministry on Sunday released a computer simulation purporting to show Israeli jets near to the Russian reconnaissance plane, shown in red, before it was accidentally shot down by Syrian forces Credit: Russian Defense Ministry Press Service via AP   Israel has for more than a year been bombing Iranian and Lebanese Hizbullah bases and munitions factories inside Syria that it sees as a threat to its national security. Russia agreed to turn a blind eye unless the Syrian regime itself was directly targeted. An Israel Defense Forces delegation travelled last week to Moscow in an attempt to ease the tensions caused by the incident -  the deadliest for Russians caused by friendly fire since they intervened on behalf of President Bashar al-Assad in 2015.  The delegation, headed by the commander of the air force, Maj. Gen. Amikam Norkin, offered Russian Air Force commander Lt. Gen. Andrey Yudin their view of what transpired. However, the Kremlin has continued to blame Israel for the incident, and on Monday accused Israeli pilots of "premeditated actions", warning it will harm relations between the two countries. "According to [the] information of our military experts, the reason (behind the downing) was premeditated action by Israeli pilots which certainly cannot but harm our relations," Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin's spokesman, said. Russian president Vladimir Putin aims a rifle at the Kalashnikov shooting centre at Patriot military park Credit: Tass President Vladimir Putin had attempted to defuse tensions with its ally, saying it had been a tragic accident. Analysts said Moscow's latest move was as much about reining in Israel as it was about controlling its own partners in Syria. “Moscow’s decision to provide Syrian forces with S-300 air defense system and Russian personnel to operate them is aimed at making Israel more careful in the vicinity of Russian assets, while also controlling Syrian allies,” said Dmitri Trenin‏, director of Carnegie Moscow Centre. “Russian MoD is stepping up as a leading player in Syria.”

  • New Zealand's 'First Baby' Neve makes history with United Nations debut alongside Jacinda Ardern

    Golocal247.com news

    New Zealand’s so-called “First Baby” - the three-month-old daughter of prime minister Jacinda Ardern -  has made her debut on the international political stage, appearing at a peace summit at the United Nations with her mother. Ms Ardern kissed Neve Te Aroha before addressing the summit, during which the baby was held by Clarke Gayford, Ms Ardern’s partner. Mr Gayford sent an image of his daughter’s United Nations security pass, which playfully listed her title as “First Baby”. "Because everyone on Twitter's been asking to see Neve's UN ID, staff here whipped one up," he wrote. "I wish I could have captured the startled look on a Japanese delegation inside the UN yesterday who walked into a meeting room in the middle of a nappy change. Great yarn for her 21st." Because everyone on twitter's been asking to see Neve's UN id, staff here whipped one up.

Great yarn for her 21st. pic.twitter.com/838BI96VYX— Clarke Gayford (@NZClarke) September 24, 2018 Ms Ardern, 38, is her country’s youngest leader and the first to take maternity leave. She is only the second leader in modern history to give birth while in office, after Pakistan's Benazir Bhutto in 1990. Ms Ardern said she and her partner made “a very practical decision” to take Neve with them into the United Nations summit in New York. “Neve is actually nearby me most of the time in New Zealand, she's just not always caught,” she said.

CLARY/AFP Ms Ardern has been feted by the United States media during her visit and appeared on NBC’s Today Show shortly after her arrival. She joked that taking her daughter on a seventeen-hour flight “at the time felt on par” with running the country. "But between Clarke and I we managed it," she said. "You don't know until you are there of course, but [motherhood] has met my expectations, the joy though has far surpassed my expectations."
