The oppositi[t:tag slug=oppoziciya]opposition in Syria is becoming increasingly fierce. In response to an offensive of the government troops, launched with the support of Russian air strikes, Washington approved the activation of the supply of US anti-Syrian opposition systems, which are sent to the country through regional allies. In a world first talked about the threat of a proxy war between the US and Russia in Syria. According to the respondents “b” of experts, the starting point could be the delivery of air defense of the Syrian opposition, however, given the risks to the security of the United States on such a radical step the White House is not ready to go.

They are such that the rebels are a lot of anti-missile systems, and the regime is attacking them with Russian help,” - said the expert, Jeff White of the Washington-based Institute for Near East Policy, which quoted by The New York Times.
