    I look forward to the day Syria shoots down an IAF plane, regardless of whether or not it's with a Russian missile.

    Israel is not renowned for "subtle responses".

    Why do you look forward? Longing for the Israel's "subtle responses"? How noble and whole-hearted from you...

    It is a missile defence system so the first thing it should do is destroy Israeli missiles launched into Syria. It may or may not subsequently destroy the planes that sent them. Perhaps Russia will disable that facility on Syrian controlled systems.

    UN Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for Syria Staffan de Mistura

    Kommersant: UN Special Envoy for Syria to step down

    "Consultations are underway in the United Nations on choosing a new Special Envoy for Syria to replace Staffan de Mistura, who decided to retire at the end of November. The Italian diplomat spoke about his decision at a time when the negotiations on forming a constitutional committee in Syria, which he oversaw, had been deadlocked. Sources told Kommersant about candidates being considered to replace him.

    "Even if the constitutional committee is formed, it will be mired in contradictions. Perhaps, de Mistura decided to leave now, having achieved the most that he could," a source familiar with the work of the UN Syria envoy told Kommersant.

    The UN is now hashing over who to select to occupy this post. Sources told Kommersant, several individuals are now being looked at. The list includes Special Representative for Iraq and Head of the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq Jan Kubis, UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nicolay Mladenov, and former Foreign Minister of Algeria, Ramtan Lamamra. "Kubis would be a worthy successor to de Mistura, but our Western colleagues might not approve his candidacy, Mladenov as well. Perhaps there will be more names," a diplomatic source in Moscow told the newspaper. According to the source, the new Special Envoy must be an authoritative figure, with whom all parties to the conflict will be ready to work.

    One of the leaders of the Syrian armed opposition Colonel Fateh Hasun told Kommersant that the key point for de Mistura’s successor is that he holds neutral views and is a professional. Official speaker of the Syrian opposition delegation at the Astana talks Ayman al-Asimi told the newspaper that the country of origin or personality of the new Special Envoy wouldn’t matter, only the way the countries working on the Syrian sentiment will work with him. He noted that a shared understanding between Turkey, the United States and Russia is very important for progress on Syria, since these countries are deeply involved in resolving the conflict."
