Additional Details And Analysis Of Israeli Attack On Syrian Patsir-S Air Defense System (Video)

Donate

On January 21, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) released a video allegedly showing the destruction of a Pantsir-S1 air defense system of the Syrian Air Defense Forces during the January 20 IDF strike on Syria. MORE HERE

The video, which was made from several separate parts [please take a look at 0:17], gained a wide attention in the media and caused multiple speculations and opinions. Below, SF provides a version released by Syrian military commentator, Mohammed Saleh Alftayeh.

According to the provided version, the IDF employed IAI Harop loitering munitions to target the Pantsir-S1 system. The IAI Harop is an anti-radiation drone, which is capable of autonomously homing in on radio emissions.

HINT: On May 10, 2018 the IDF already employed IAI Harop munitions to destroyed an inact Pantsir-S1 system of the Syrian military. MORE HERE

Additionally, Alftayeh pointed out that the air-defense system was not active when it was targeted by the Israeli strike. This can be confirmed by the position of radar of the Pantsir-S1.

Summing up these reveleations and the fact that the Israeli video was made from several parts, it becomes clear that:

  • The IDF assembled footage from different munitions to show like the Pantsir-S1 system was targeted during an active engagement because it was not been able to repel the attack. This montaged video was actively used by the Israeli media in its propaganda campaign on the conflict.
  • In fact, the Pantsir-S1 system was targeted when it was inactive. The system had likely spent all of its ammunition and was waiting for a reloading vehicle. At this very moment, the system was hit by a strike.

    Where is Russian schield Chibiny-4 ? Should will Pantsir-1 under this electronic protect , nothing passed

    • jako

      Read the article first please.
      It is Pantsir of “Syrian Air Defense Forces” it has nothing to do with “Russians” !
      You can’t blame Russians for the mistake of Syrians!

      And NO… Pantsir does not need electronic warfare for self defense but it does need ammunition!
      So if there is no other Pantsir around for protection they should not reload in open space like that and expose the Pantsir to the destruction.
      They must make some planing with reloading (when and where to reload) or simply have another protection while loading ammunition because they are vulnerable in that situation.

      • Rob

        The Syrian army chief and commanders are useless. SAA should not keep air defense system exposed. They should keep it underground and when needed then bring it to front under camouflage and for reloadeing they should take it underground. A 3 year old child also knows this.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Arabs have no planning or common sense logic. They are impetuous and their militaries are not professional. Indeed, even a 2nd Lieutenant knows that when one system is out of action, second one covers it. The hills around Damascus are ideal tunneling soil, but SAA has done nothing to build underground pens and silos for weaponry. Not even prepared blast walls and berms to protect SAMS or armor. The CIA headchoppers dug 15 kms of underground tunnels under Douma alone without much excavating machinery. The SAA is well equipped but brainless obviously. The Zionist take advantage of Arab stupidity and professionalism.

          • Anti_Globalista

            It is very interesting (from professional psychiatrist point of view) how certain patients can talk with confidence about subjects they have no clue about.

          • Rob

            You are absolutely correct. All lunatics came together in SAA and in their allies. They are so relax like they attending wedding party, even a 3 year old child knows these tacktecks. They don’t need fathers to tell them to hide your asses.

          • Rob

            When the defence system has exhausted then that should be underground. SAA shouldn’t keep their asses exposed to enemies.

        • jako

          Exactly!
          Above all not to reload ammunition out in open.
          It is logical that they must have reload in well protected place and that the Pantsir is hidden during operation of reloading

    • Rob

      Yesterday that was switched off because there was a birthday party in Hamime military air base. Now that’s on.

        Fuck off, troll!

          Why you became angry. Why those in Hamim airbase don’t know that what’s going on in the region. Why they don’t have access to reconnaissance satellites. LOL.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        LOL. The Ruskie arseholes are in bed with their Zionist masters. It is that simple.

    • Manuel Flores Escobar

      Nothing went wrong!..just Syrian soldiers use to park Pantsir in open field without camouflage..instead of hide it….this is the second time..so they dont learn the lesson!…Have you seen videos where many SAA soldiers remain on roof in open field..all together in a war zone and…TOW missile hit them?…many times and they dont change their tactics!

      • Rob

        I think well trained person should be the chief of army staff like Suhail Al Hassan. The commando training of army should be first priority.

        The Syrian army chief should have to be quickly removed due to lack of interest.

        • Manuel Flores Escobar

          Of course such system like Pantsir and Buk operates by Iranian forces or some European countries would have a ratio of 90-100%..instead of 60-70% when SAA are comanding the AD resources!

  • katakanBR

  • FB

    Glad to see this article…it confirms my previous post on the other thread, where I noted that the clip was spliced from two separate missile cameras…this is obvious at the 17 second mark, where the picture brightness suddenly increases dramatically…also it is obvious that the flight direction of the two cameras is not the same…the second on is in a nose up attitude, while the first is pointed more down…I did not notice the radar folded down on the Pantsir…and assumed it was the same one that had been firing in the first half of the clip…you can see my original comment in this thread…

    • occupybacon

      They said they are 2 separate vehicles.

      • FB

        Not sure I understand your meaning…who said that…and what two vehicles…two different Pantsirs…?

        • occupybacon

          Yes, Israelis when presented the vid said there are two separate vids from two Pantsirs.

          • FB

            do you have a link…?…even if that is what the Israelis said somewhere, it does not change the fact that this video is spliced…and there is no mention in the video itself that it is from two different cameras…

          • occupybacon

            Search google news, any article says there are two videos in one.

            Edit: check this https://defence-blog.com/army/israel-targeted-several-pantsir-s1-air-defense-system-in-syria.html

          • FB

            Like I figured…you’re sitting here squeezing out fresh diarrhea…I read that article you pointed to and it doe NOT say anywhere that the video is spliced together from two different cameras…it shows the exact same 27 second video clip as seen in this south front article, as well as in previous articles on the Pantsir kill…your article also shows the previous kill on ANOTHER Pantsir from MAY 2018…we all know about that previous Pantsir kill from last year…that has NOTHING to do with the video released today by the Israelis being doctored…kindly shut up please…you obviously have problems understanding simple matters…

          • occupybacon

            Right above the video, the article says:

            “Also, Israeli military released footage showing the several Russian-made Pantsir-S1 (SA-22 according to the NATO designation) missile defense systems took a direct hit during an Israeli airstrike in Syria.”

            Then, at the bottom of the article, it says:
            “On May 10, 2018, Israeli fighter jets struck several military targets in Syria, including Russian-built Pantsir-S1system.”

            Then is the second video from May 2018.

            So the first video description says very clear: SEVERAL MISSILES SYSTEMS. Not ONE SYSTEM.

          • FB

            You’re obviously retarded…saying that they ‘attacked several air defense systems’ is NOT the same as saying ‘we spliced footage from two separate drones together to make it look like we hit a Pantsir that was firiing, instead of one that was shut down’…

            Like I said already…I spotted the splicing on this video several hours BEFORE this article was even posted…after viewing the footage on another article on this site…. https://southfront.org/overview-of-syrian-israeli-encounter-on-january-20-21-map-video-photos/

            My comment there may have prompted the guys that run this site to take a look at the video…I don’t know…all I know is that my comment flagging this video as doctored was up several hours before this article appeared…so the video is doctored…and no amount of retarded diarrhea from a little piece of crap like you changes that…

      • Zionism = EVIL

        One was reloader and was only damaged. The firing truck with the flat head 2 Face Radar was destroyed as it had no covering system. It is normal military practice even in the worst 3rd world dumps to cover one system with another while one is inactive. Russia has not supplied adequate systems to Syria and in any case coordinates these Zionist attacks with IDF. Even when the Zionist killed 15 Ruskies, Putin’s response was to invite a high ranking Zionist delegation for a state visit and dinners. Russians are complete cowardly arseholes and I know that from personal experience.

        • FB

          You’re spouting a lot of diarrhea…the Syrian Pantsir was killed mainly due to crew mistakes and general poor performance…the Serbs in 1999 had far less to work with…mostly ancient equipment…and they fought a truly massive Nato air armada of over 1,000 aircraft to a standstill…for three months…

          • Zionism = EVIL

            The Serbs got clobbered too. And secondly Russians are cunts who did nothing for Serbs either, nor did the Chinks who lost 13 people when NATO targeted the Chinese embassy. Serbs are rapists and child killer arseholes and and deserved to be bombed. Now fuck off.

          • Brother Ma

            Serbs are last warriors of Europe.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            No shit brother Ma, just like the Zionist warriors against unarmed women and children?. The Ruskie arseholes supported the 1999 UNSC resolution to bomb Serbia, just like they did on Iran, Yemen, Libya etc. Russians are weak as piss and in Jew pockets anyway. BTW, China also went along on all UNSC Zionist inspired resolutions, even though the Americunts deliberately targeted the Chinese embassy and killed 13 Chinese diplomats. It is this type of kow towing to the Americunts and Zionists scum that has emboldened them. It is time to stand up and hit back. These cunts are now deliberately provoking China in its own backyard of South China sea and DASH 9 line. I have more faith in China that the Ruskie cowards,

          • Brother Ma

            Serbs are nothing like Khazarians and Chinese have no will to fight outside their land. They are the Land of Lotus Eaters just as they always were.

          • FB

            You are quite the wanker aren’t you…there was NO UN security council resolution to bomb Serbia…it was an illegal act of aggression…the security council resolution 1244 that ended the illegal Nato war recognizes Serbia’s territorial integrity…which means Kosovo is legally a Serbian province…look it up asshat…you must be some kind of circumcised Muslim fanatic to be badmouthing the Christian Serbs like that…no white Christian people agree with that…sad that we get Muslim trolls here…

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Like I said Serbs are cowardly rapist cunts, and barely register on the scale of geo-politics. Even the Kosovars kicked their dumb ass ROFLMAO.

            But your so-called ‘facts’ are obviously fantasy…like your complete fantasy about the UN security council resolution that doesn’t exist…you don’t know a single thing…yet here you are squirting diarrhea like a firehose…also notice you don’t deny being a circumcised Muslim goat banger…why don’t you do yourself and the world a big favor and blow yourself up…like you Muslim fanatics like to do…

          • Anti_Globalista

            Everybody is either cunt or coward. Germans need to grow balls, Japanese are like little girls, even mighty Russia bows to small Israel, and China is trying to please US. Small Serbia standing up to mightiest military force on earth doesn’t sound too bad in comparison (they downed one “invisible” US plane), and no NATO soldier dared to enter Serbia. Lesbian premier is part of paying back by the West to show what happens to the country that dares to defend itself. Serbia paid the price, but not as bad as Iraq, Lybia, or Syria.

          • FB

            Actually, the Serbs killed two F117 ‘stealth’ aircraft….the second one was able to make it back to Aviano base, Italy, but was written off and never flew again…this was confirmed by legendary USAF test pilot, the late Col. Everest Riccioni… see page 10, footnote 18 of Col Riccioni’s report on the F22… http://www.pogoarchives.org/m/dp/dp-fa22-Riccioni-03082005.pdf

            ‘Of the three aircraft shot down during our incursion into Serbia, one was an F–16 flown by a pilot doing other than he was directed to do, and two were the most stealthy F–117 Night Hawks, one of which staggered back to its home base never to fly again, so it is seldom counted.’

            That F16 that was shot down was flown by the current USAF chief of staff, Gen David Goldfein, who was a Lt Col at the time… https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_L._Goldfein

            There is much more that yahoos in chat rooms don’t know about the 1999 air war in Serbia…it was a historic David vs Goliath story that still today is studied by professional air combat parctitioners…see the authorititave professional analysis by Dr Benjamin Lambeth, published in the Aerospace Power Journal, the USAF’s professional flagship publication…starts on page 8… https://www.airuniversity.af.edu/Portals/10/ASPJ/journals/Volume-16_Issue-1-4/sum02.pdf

            ‘Fortunately for NATO, the Serb IADS did not include the latest-generation SAM equip­ment currently available on the international arms market…As Lieutenant General Short later commented darkly, “It [having s300s] would have profoundly changed the balance of the threat and our ability to maintain air superiority.”‘

        • occupybacon

          I didn’t say the second vehicle was active. I was saying there are two separate videos for two separate vehicles. That’s how they were presented. SF says both videos show the same vehicle which makes the videos suspicious.

  • occupybacon

    They said that the video shows 2 separate Pantsir’s, not the same vehicle.

    • KGBDonald

      Oh, “they” say? “They” are the biggest liars in human history. Interesting thing: the first video is so blurred and shitty you can’t even tell if it’s a “vehicle” (or an exploding ammo depot perhaps?). Unlike the second video.

      • occupybacon

        Ok so they presented the video and specified it is made from two videos from two separate strikes and this article presents it as they would have said it’s the same vehicle but SF is so smart that they discovered there are two videos, who is the biggest liar?

  • FB

    Also need to point out that since the Pantsir had its radar switched off and folded, it would not have been emitting radio signals for the Israeli drone to home in on…clearly the drone has optical guidance also…anyway it does show that this IAI Harop drone is an effective anti air defense weapon…it is very small, so difficult to spot on radar and it just snuck in, in the midst of all the other missiles…plus you have an operator on the other end watching through this thing’s camera and picking out possible targets…

    • Prince Teutonic

      More probably it was TV-guided missile fired from a MALE UAV…

    • Rodney Loder

      Woul be GPS guided you moron.

      • FB

        No it would not be GPS guided, you creepy old freak…for the simple reason that you can’t use satnav to target an object which is MOBILE… since you do NOT know its geographical coordinates at the time of launch…the Pantsir is mounted on a TRUCK so it could be anywhere…how would you know its precise location coordinates…?

        Also satnav plays a very minor BACKUP role in aircraft and missile navigation in general…even for a fixed target for which you know the location …for the simple reason that satnav is not always available, due to the satellite orbit paths and the fact that a specific number of sats must be in line of sight of the aircraft or missile in order to make a triangulation of your position at any time…this is not always the case…I’m a commercial pilot for more than three decades and the primary nav system is a self-contained GYRO system called inertial nav system…look it up freak…also GPs is very easy to jam…because its sats are in medium earth orbit which is more than 20,000 km up…so the signal is very weak by the time it gets here…even amateur equipment you can buy for a few dollars online can jam GPS signals…and Russia has the Zhitel system in Syria specifically for that purpose…I would suggest you actually learn something about the subject before coming on here and throwing names around…

            Suprisingly for “no” one everything I post is true, I could have had any audience but I chose Salaficism because it was impossible to discern the fullest meanings of fundamentalism before Allah chose me to bring the Holy Spirt to Earth, and if there was no Religion holding Heaven and Allah to be biological my explanations would have fallen on deaf ears similar to yours.

            Of course it’s Allah that stiffens necks so people can’t believe what they perceive, and use, because He has His own reasons, I suspect He just doesn’t want them in Paradise but no one is sure about that.

            However the Holy Spirit is so profound its never been conceived possible, never really conceived at all not even by fictional writers, which is why it was stolen from me by dirty thieving Christian swine but with the help of my Salafist Brothers and Sisters I wrested it back, now Christians are mad about that, so we understand you reluctance to be any but anonymous.

  • Prince Teutonic

    So if Pantsir is waiting for reloading vehicle why are then 30mm cannons up? And why these idiots doesn’t use second Pantsir while first one is reloading!?

    • Derapage

      – Because for reloading the tubes it necessary to raise the 30mm cannons.
      – Because there are not a second Pantsir for cover the first one while reloading.

    • Tommy Jensen

      Because the 30mm cannons still are in a Russian training camp.

  • Promitheas Apollonious

    or is a fake video, that is the most possible explanation and is not beyond the scum of the earth to produce it.

  • Derapage

    The IAI Harop is an anti-radiation drone, which is capable of autonomously homing in on radio emissions.
    Then the Pantsir Radar was active otherwise the Harop drone would not have been direct towards the Pantsir, right?

    • jako

      NO radar was NOT active read the article please.

      I don’t know the specs of Harop drone but my lucky guess is that “autonomous homing” was just optional in the situation when the target is hidden.
      But when the target is not hidden and crew is stupid enough to load ammunition out in open….
      it is very easy to have radar lock on target and GPS. for misssiles and drones, bombs or such
      If they had exact GPS coordinates they didn’t need switching on “autonomous homing”
      It is the same with the missiles

    • Garga

      Not necessarily. Older generations of anti-radiation missiles (that drone is kind of a cruise missile) would lose the target if the source of radiation went dark (shutting down the radar), but newer ones remember the coordinates.

      The Pantsir’s crew’s mistake probably was when they ran out of ammunition and had to reload, they didn’t move the truck. With such a mobile system there’s no excuse not to do it, unless they were so unlucky that as soon as they ran out of ammo and before attempted to move, the missile (drone) came.

  • Rodney Loder

    Russia will have to step up to the mark and deliver the S-400 systems and eventually the SAA will have to take back the Golan.

    Personally I don’t think moral is critical in partisan ranks, it’s mainly the smiley Christian Zinosists who need to always be exceptional.

    And there is nothing wrong with that, if it delivers the S-400 and the Zinosists in Russia take a beating when their baby murdering brothers and sisters attack Assad.

    The Bolsheviks declared Zionists to be nefarious criminals. Gorbachev was a Zinosit infiltrator, 1974 Gorbachev re-established diplomatic relations with israel and opened jewish immigration to israel, Praise be to Allah the Russian are no longer the minions of Christian swine and Gorbachev is relegated to the rubbish can of history.

    Gorbachev visited israel 1992 to receive a heroes welcome, now he should be arrested as a traitor.

    But I think it was Allah who put him up to it, because Allah wanted to expose the Christians as evil so as see the Zinosit Christian swine get what they deserve.

    The wars of attrition are the wars of devotion to Allah.

    Well such wars are a way for people to prove their individual devotion to good or evil.

    Allahu Akbar ; God is Greatest.

    • You can call me Al

      They need to switch on the bloody S-300; the S-400 can wait.

      • Sinbad2

        They choose not to fire on aircraft in Lebanon.
        If an Israeli jet crossed into Syria, it would be targeted in seconds.

      • Rodney Loder

        I think the Syrian Air Defence is using the S-300 radars but not the missiles I heard that’s because the F-16’s are staying so far away they have to use heavier missiles that show up on the radar, that’s why the success rate is so high, but the F-16 are too far away to take a shot at even using S-300. but I’m no expert.

        • You can call me Al

          Interesting theory though. Cheers.

    • Manuel Flores Escobar

      Russia only want to test their short range ADF system…during the morning SAD were able to shot down all 7 missile..then israel used 50!..The day they get to destroy all of them ( 50 or more)..many countries will want to buy Pantsir and Buk…

  • KGBDonald

    10:00 rocket is flying up, 11:00 hit something? (see that black thing), then going down?

  • potcracker777

    hilarious……2 wave of attacks…over 3o Missiles/bombs used by IDF……..7 Missiles first wave the rest second wave……

    so what about the elec. jamming by the russians
    what about the “game changer” tactics after the downed russian plane..”tit for tat” “IDF bombs damascus int. Airport, we bomb yours” “IDF bombs Military installations, we bomb back”
    those were quotes of the syrian Leadership and the russian Military command quotes!!!!

    LEARN FROM HEZBOLLAH….
    the jew only understands 1 language

    IDF has been flying over lebanon day in day out.Not 1 bomb, not 1 Missile targeted lebanon/hezbollah, not ONE.
    And Nasrallah has made it perfectly clear during his last speech ” the Zionist Regime dont dare attack us, because they know we will INSTANTLY strike back no matter what.PERIOD”

    If u do , do the “heavy talk” like russia or SAA, then u will have to back it up, espeically against them jews, because they will jump on EVERY WEAKNESS they see.

    again …..HEZBOLLAH is a great teacher.

        The “tunnels” were all hype and certainly the little hand dug holes did not cost millions of dollars or anything.

        Hezbollah doesn’t need tunel to fight cowards . Israel is good from air but not for long . Hezbollah will this time shoot Israel airforce down.

      • Rob

        These tunnels dugged by Israel and then Israel have destroyed these tunnels themselves. The making and destroying these tunnels does not cost single penny to Hezbollah. Did you understand. These are the old tactics of Israeli terrorists for disinformation like they have done with Palestinians.

      Much of what you’re attributing to the Russians or Syrians came from websites that may be publishing disinfo, not the Russian or Syrian government.

        Israel blackmails Russia with allow gaspipelines through its territory( from Saudi Arabia/Qatar/ to link with Arab Pipeline/Egipt/Jordan) to Haifa…and from there to Cyprus..to Greece….thas why israel have launched hundred of airstrike vs Syria along these years…and 0 airstrike vs lebanon…and 0 airstrike vs Iran…..

        • jako

          That is pure disinformation that you are spreading
          Find me articles where there is finalized project of building pipelines between Israel and Europe?
          There is NO such project ready and it is already for so many years that they spreading that disinformation!

          The project is TOO EXPENSIVE and too difficult
          And Mediterranean sea is deep and has volcanic and tectonic activity often between Cyprus and Greece
          The gas (even if pipeline is finished will be TOO EXPENSIVE to directly compete with the Russians )
          Russians MUCH CHEAPER already get their gas directly from the ground than any other producer so they can even cut the prices without having loses!
          So get your facts straight and not spred this Western propaganda!
          If that Israeli project was so attractive EU would jump in LONG TIME AGO!

          They were talking the same bullshit for Turkmenistan & Azerbaijani gas to push out Russian gas DECADES AGO and Russians are still exporting in EU

        • Rob

          There is a big distance from Israel to greece. The pipeline would be too costly and vulnerable to regular torpedoes attacks. Saudis and Qataries are not stupid to spend trillions on that.

          • Manuel Flores Escobar

            Haifa to Cyprus is not a long distance…similar Greece to Italy in a new projetct from Azerbajan.

          • Rob

            260+ Km. Due to Pipline vulnerability to torpedoes and cost not worth of investment.

        1) Taking down IL-20 was with planned involvement of NATO as well (that was NOT pure incident or coincidence but precisely calculated plan for that to happen)
        US-NATO were directly involved
        2)Russian satellites fly over the region and US-NATO know exactly when the Russian satellites are there and when NOT.
        3) Russian contingent in Syria is powerful but very small.
        They can have satellites when available, Russian AWACS, some drones, radars etc but all that equipment is NOT match to US + NATO + Israel equipment (Syrian reconnaissance equipment is not worth mentioning)

    • Rob

      Israel have split Soviet Union but still Russians like the Western created Israeli terrorist state.

      Pantsir is not able to detect the stealth drones approaching it as this video shows clearly.

      • KGBDonald

        More delusional nonsense. “this video shows clearly.” 100% bullshit. shows what? Absolutely nothing. Pantsir (second video) is completely inactive, not even trying to detect anything, radar nor even erected. Perhaps its not even a real vehicle just a decoy. No reason to stay there for days without changing position.
        https://southfront.org/satellite-images-impact-of-israeli-strikes-on-syria-on-january-20/
        First video? It’s not even Pantsir. Today they showed that one destroyed Pantsir (inactive one). Not a word about the other one. Who can tell what exactly was that first target (perhaps just an ammo depot)? But if it was Pantsir and it fired, then it obviously detected something (otherwise no reason to fire at all). So are wrong in any case.

        HEZBOLLAH should have flag with Mickey Mouse on it.

        And than
        Israel would think that those are Disneyland troops.

        Actually it is simple.

        Russian direct order to Israel was NOT
        to attack Syria at all !

        So if they do not understand that
        direct order they will have to pay the price.

        If you think Russia is there just to prop up an ally for altruistic reasons you are misinformed. The west is bent on taking Russia and it’s untapped reserves. Syria and Iran stand in their way. The only way to Russia proper (actual Russian land) is through these 2 countries. Were it not for Russia, Syria would not have stood a chance. The same goes for Iran, were it not for them, Russia would not have been as successful as it was on the ground. Russia does not work with Iran just because they oppose the west, Russia does it because they need Iran as well as Hezbollah in combating the KSA/Israeli/NATO wahabbi attacks on Russia and it’s former satellites. The war in Chechnya was CIA/KSA operation. ISIS is KSA/CIA creation. Who has been fighting them both for nearly 40 years? If Russia left Syria today, capitulation of Russian economic sovereignty would follow sooner or later…or Russia would have a physical war on their doorsteps. Russia is there because they need to be there. Putins problems at home are part of this issue (Atlanticists)…as well as Russias actual supplies of next gen weapons. To ‘have’ them is one thing, to have enough to make a difference is another. Re:Syria and destroyed Pantsir. Overwhelmed, run out of ammo, destroyed. At this point this is all the west can do. He who has the most weapons stocks will win. This is why Russia does not want to engage in a major way. The other question is; How many missiles can Israel afford to waste?

            These were your replies to comments of others (and I) that you attributed to Russian leaders. When I suggested that I had not seen such statements, you bombarded me with this, saying you saw it on Tass…which was good enough for you…at the time anyways. As for your continuing diatribe…either back up your BS and have a decent conversation or be prepared to eat your words. “What has happened is that Iran with Assad help are using GROWING POWER of air defenses in Syria for THEIR OWN ANTI ISRAELI PLANS which have nothing to do with FIGHT AGAINST TERRORISTS !” You know this how? From US/Israeli propaganda? When did Iran or Syria attack Israel?
            If you really believe fighting against Israel is not fighting against terrorism, you are the one who is deluded. I personally do not think Russia plays a double game, but a smart one. But when this BS infighting starts and one starts claiming who is the most important player and denigrates others efforts, not to mention others actual strategic value, I have to say something…especially when one (you) make statements (like the one I quoted above) that could have come from Bibi or Trump. Be clear on this…no one, including Russia, could have accomplished this without the involvement of all. If Russia went this alone, they would have another Afghanistan before them. If you think Russia can take on the world alone, especially economically, you are wrong. Where would Russia be if Syria and Iran flipped over to the west? If Russia would shit on Iran and Hezbollah it would be to their own detriment and the questioning of their integrity. You might also want to take a chill pill.

            1) Al Arabia was reporting 15 foreigners killed of which 12 Iranians.
            Which would confirm that object was some kind of Iranian object
            Of course you will call them “liars”….
            2) Russian official “protest” came only yesterday in the meantime they didn’t even bother to publish in the news about that attack much.
            Just shows that there is something fishy about all that affair!
            And that Russian protest was just their average protest targeting Israel.
            So here we are again you will continue your anti-Russian propaganda for not helping Iran in their plans against Israel !

            I personally think that Iran is lousy allay to Russia (but one can’t chose allays if life imposes them on us with common enemy)

            The PRIORITY is freedom of SYRIA not attack on Israel and that is major difference between Iran and Russia that will not go away.

            Again if you want to fight Israel to the last Russian the Russia will not let you do that.

    Israel used the mechanism of urgent contacts with the Russian military during strikes against targets in Syria last night, Israel Defense Force spokesman Jonathan Conricus told a news briefing for foreign media on Monday.
    “The deconfliction mechanism in Syria is supported by both parties – Israel and Russia. It is being used at the moment while we are having this conversation. It was routinely employed in accordance with the standard procedures last night,” Conricus said.

    Last night’s strikes against Iranian targets in Syria were in retaliation for the launch of a surface-to-surface missile against the Israeli territory on Sunday.
    The Israeli Air Force attacked Iranian weapons warehouses, an intelligence facility, a training camp and Syrian air defense batteries, the IDF press-service said earlier.

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 P.M.) – Minutes ago, several Israeli warplanes were spotted near the Lebanese-Syrian border, prompting the Syrian military to raise their alert levels.
    According to a source in Damascus, the Syrian military spotted at least eight Israeli warplanes in the Jabal Sheikh (Mount Hermon) region of southeast Lebanon.

    The source said that the Israeli Air Force was flying low altitude flights along the border, but they did not enter Syrian airspace as of yet.
    This latest border flight by the Israeli Air Force comes nearly 24 hours after they launched a heavy attack on the Damascus countryside.
    The Israeli attack ultimately resulted in the destruction of several military sites in rural Damascus and Al-Sweida, while also killing a number of soldiers.

    Excuse me, but is everyone here blind? You can clearly see the Pantsir firing off two shots that go completely astray swirling about aimlessly.

There were obviously at least two, probably much more. ISISraeli sick terrorist raids are actually sign of desperation, and they mostly failed. Oh yeah, and they were stopped by Hezbollah back in 2006. so unstoppable haha

      • You can call me Al

        I have been out, much of the day, so I missed all this today. I am assuming the patsir is destroyed, because it ran out of ammo – OK, but I thought Syria had an air defence system that had overlapping defences, so where were the other BUK, S-200, Pansir’s covering the area ?.

        Assuming it was blown up; this is the 2nd time this has happened, because they ran out of ammo and were waiting for new supplies.

        PS Is it wasn’t, the video could have been taken from the first occurrence.

        • KGBDonald

          First ISISraeli attack (during the day) failed miserably, all 7 missiles were intercepted and destroyed. I guess Bibi and his generals were furious, humiliated; so they attacked those batteries with 50 missiles in ‘revenge’ (sick psychos). This wasn’t even about Iranians, the whole idea is to save face and destroy as many Pantsirs as possible (and they failed to do so, only one or two were destroyed). It also explains this propaganda IDF video (released immediately after the raid).

          Syrians of course, didn’t change their position, just sitting there in open, doing nothing… amazing tactics. Guess they’ll never learn.

      As Washington and UK have created and supported Israeli terrorist state, similarly Russia should support Syria. If Israel like rats taking out pray and bear look hopelessly then the dream of leading the world cannot be accomplished.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        Sadly, Russia is corrupt, weak and in Jew pockets. It will be up to Syria, Iran, Iraq, Hezbollah to retaliate. Putin is playing Assad who is weak himself and only let Russia in to save himself. Iran is a regional power with its own strategic interests and has to protect them. Russians are only interested in carving up Syria to maintain good relations with their Americunt, Zionist and NATO “partners” and also maintaining their only naval bases outside of Russia, i.e Tartus and Latakia. Even Vietnam and Cuba licked them out.

        • d’Artagnan

          Russian credibility and deterrence is now at risk with daily Israeli airstrikes.

        • RichardD

          I wouldn’t classify Russia as corrupt, weak and in Jew pockets. I also wouldn’t deny that there is corruption and a Jew problem. But Russia’s Jew problem is as much external as internal. Dejudification in Russia has reduced the population of Jews from 5 million to 200,000. But even at 200,000 they’re still a big problem, but not anywhere near what they are in the US.

          If Russia was weak, they wouldn’t have rolled back the $40 billion terrorist regime change project like they have which has only cost Russia about $1 billion a year. And with $1/2 trillion in foreign reserves, It’s not much of a drain on Russian capital. And they’re not borrowing any money to pay for it.

          The big issue at this stage, is shifting the balance of world power from Jew ridden NATO to Russia by shutting down the IAF assault on Syria by proving that Russian, not NATO equipment has air superiority.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      All true, but Russians have not provided Syria with adequate number of systems. It is normal operational procedure to cover one system with another active one when reloading. Secondly, the batteries have no counter-measures deployed life chaff dispensers or even in dug in protected positions with decoys. Unless Syria is saturated with layered integrated SAM and AAA network, the Zionist attacks will continue. There are reports from Southern Lebanon that 8 Zionist F-16I and F-15 overflew Sidon today. Hezbollah needs to be armed with Pantsir and S-300.

      • Sage Durham

        Can’t see Russia supplying s-300 to HZB. Goes against the Israel/Russia treatie or whatever it is…

      • RichardD

        You’re missing the point. If the S-300s/400s are 50% to 100% effective like some of the other systems. Then the Jews will start losing a lot of planes and the existing SADF systems are effective for what they are. You can always cover the systems with cover to infinity. When what needs to be done is to take out the launch platforms.

  • RichardD

    The entire Israeli operation looks like a scam. From targeting Syrian military and civilian sites without legal justification, to the Golan missile strike false flag that was used to escalate the aggression, to hitting another out of service Pantsir unit.

    • Bigaess Wangmane

      Of course it’s a scam, but real lives are being lost all the same. I hope that Syria finally gains the means to effectively defend their airspace against Zionist aggression.

      • RichardD

        I think that they have the means. What they need is the Russians supporting the systems that Syria obtained.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Russia won’t as 4 years of cooperation with Zionist masters and Americunt “partners” has amply demonstrated. Russia could not even protect its interests in neighboring Ukraine, which is about to join NATO, than stand up for an Arab country far away. Russia and US are both protecting Zionist interests in Syria, Assad is non-military man and weak leader and is being played by Russia.

          • RichardD

            Russia didn’t have troops in Ukraine until after the coup. In Syria they do to prevent the regime change. The deconfliction agreements have allowed the Syrian government to expand control to 60% of the country. Without drawing in increased US and Israeli attacks beyond what was manageable.

            What was the purpose of the S-300 deployment if not to deter IAF airstrikes?

            “Russia didn’t have troops in Ukraine until after the coup”

            Except an entire Naval infantry brigade in Sevastopol, but don’t make me perturb your evolution into a zombie.

          • RichardD

            When was Sevastopol not under Russian political administration? Sevastopol hasn’t been outside of Russian political administration for centuries. It’s never been fully part of Ukraine. Even after Ukraine was granted independence with fall of the Soviet Union, Russia retained Sevastopol.

            The Russian military presence in Crimea and eastern Ukraine was a post coup event. Unlike in Syria where the coup failed due to the government requesting and obtaining Russian assistance, which the Ukraine government didn’t get. Either because they didn’t request it, or they did and the request was rejected.

        • Sinbad2

          What they need is Syrians who can think.

          • RichardD

            And you solution is? Given your history, I’m waiting for silence or stupidity. Will you provide something different?

          • Sinbad2

            I don’t know, but you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to have camouflage netting set up for when you are not active.

          • zman

            Wow…and to think that’s all it would take to defeat signal sensing weapons. Pure genius…you should tell Russia rocket scientists about this!

          • Sinbad2

            If it’s shut down there is no signal genius.

          • zman

            It was ‘shut down’ after being used, genius. Meaning that they would already have had the location. Duh.

          • RichardD

            The Russians and many others don’t always use it either. With the change in targeting technology camouflage netting has become less of a deterrent. https://timedotcom.files.wordpress.com/2017/08/russia-syria-1.jpg?quality=85

          • Sinbad2

            But they use the redoubts in your pic above, the Syrians don’t bother to use the protection they have.

        • d’Artagnan

          It also reflects very poorly on Russian weapon systems if Israel keeps on hitting Syria with impunity.

          • RichardD

            The ones that they’re using are doing well. It’s the non use of others such as the S-300s that is the problem.

      • Tommy Jensen

        Syria will never get what they need. Assad has asked for the S-300 since 1980´s.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Russians played the same game with Egypt before even a Zionist slave like Sadat kicked them out. It took Iran over a decade to get an overpriced junk S-300 system after it filed a legal court action for $4 billion for non-delivery.

          • Tommy Jensen

            Its because Russians wants to be equal partners with West.

            Russian Oligarchs and Russian banksters live in US and will make suicide if they dont get their yearly Colorado Springs.

            In London they have England in their hearts, their children walk with sixpence, they smoke pipe in a cottage and are feeling British deep inside themselves.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            100% true. Even Putin’s own daughters from his first wife live in UK and Holland. The Jew oligarchs are ripping off Russia and Putin is part of the cabal. There is growing dissatisfaction in Russia at the corruption but the alternate is even worse of the CIA supported color coded revolution and total puppets. Unless the military steps in, but failed in the coup against the drunk Yeltsin. Russia is totally compromised now.

          • Harry Smith

            Tommy Jensen, do not worry please. Like our Minister of Culture, mr. Medinsky said when the Crimea rejoined with Russia, it is the dividing line to understand who is friend and who is enemy. Please, do not forget our national elites were annihilated by the Bolsheviks and other nationals took our elite’s place. And now is the moment of truth for us helping us to define exactly who is who.

      • Sinbad2

        To gain the means to defend themselves would take decades, you would need to educate a lot of people.

    • Romeo Pesiao

      If you are a soldier engaged in a battle and run out of ammo, do you think you can begged your enemy not to shoot, you should cover or hide for reloading…

      • RichardD

        The point is is that hitting an undefended target doesn’t mean that the system when in service is ineffective.

        • d’Artagnan

          The most touted and publicized Russian systems deployed in Syria are the supposedly top of the line S-400, however, none has been used so far, thus Russian credibility is not stellar. They will lose weapons sales if the Israeli raids continue unabated.

          • RichardD

            I completely agree. If these S-300/400 systems perform as well as others reportedly do. The loss of Jew planes will be high and cost prohibitive if they’re used.

          • Joe

            I think those S300 /S400 are more hype than real.
            or Russia still hold back their fire.

            Poor Syrians .. dying for nothing.

          • Gabriel Hollows

            It’s not that they’re hype, it’s that they haven’t been activated even once during the entire conflict. For all their big talk, Russia is as much of a puppet country as any other. This entire war has been a typical case of jew vs jew, just like the cold war.

  • Bigaess Wangmane

    I’m not sure why the SADF keeps getting caught out like this. If they can’t reload under the protection of another Pantsir S system, then get a few of these instead.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    I’m nearly blind but I thought it was a combination of both drone footage and footage from the missile itself that were shown.
    What I saw was a drone fire a decoy missile first, that spiraled down to the target at a slightly faster speed than the drone, then there appeared to be a missle shot towards the incoming drone and missile, in an attempt to intercept them but it missed, and straight after that another missile was fired from the drone that went to the left of the drone and attacked the pantsir from its left side, which was a slightly different angle to the one the first missile and the drone were approaching from, they came in from the left rear of the Pantsir.
    I suspect it was a drone that launched two missiles at the Pantsir, the first a decoy or targeting missile that was fired first, but then we see what appears to be a missile launched from the ground, which heads up to intercept the drone and incoming missile which just flies by, and then the second missile was launched by the drone just as the ground launched missile flew past, and the second missile was the one that struck the Pantsir destroying it, and then the drone just flew over the top.
    Now I know everyone will say, but the Pantsir was inactive, it couldn’t fire a missile anyway, but the ground launched missile may not have come from the Pantsir at all. I couldn’t see in the grainy footage but it may have been a MANPAD used by protecting ground forces that was used to try and intercept the incoming drone and missile, if the Pantsir was inactive to reload it would make sense to have a backup defence in place, a MANPAD is better than nothing, and I honestly believe the main footage we viewed was that from the drone and it launched 2 seperate missiles at the Pantsir the first a decoy and the second the killer missile, the other plume of smoke that appeared to come from the ground must have been a MAPAD fired missile that was trying to intercept the drone, the decoy missile and the drone combined would have made it difficult for even an operating Pantsir to target them both.
    I don’t think there’s anything falsified in these images, it all seems conventional and straightforward and shows exactly how the Pantsir was destroyed with 2 different camera angles of the same event, not a montage of separate events and images.
    But as I say I’m as blind as a bat, maybe I’m just seeing things.

  • Xoli Xoli

    Attack with in period under 24 hours should have been block by Russia and allies.Russia has jamming systems.Defend weak opinion is useless because Israel has already cause damage.Most expensive Russian reconnaissance jet was down by Israeli reckless attack.Israel have notice Russian weakness while tRussians are testing their weapons on Syrian soldiers life expense.Currently nothing can stop Israel attack.Only Iran and Hizbollah can if their respond not that crap of Russian avoiding nuclear war.Does Russia only have nuclear weapons.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Guys, like a broken record how can I emphasize that Russia is in Jew pockets and will nothing. Putin is a corrupt Jew cunt.The sick bastard did not retaliate or lodge a complaint when the Zionists downed the flying dishwasher IL-20 or when Turkeys downed the moped SU-24 over Syrian territory. Russia is weak and suffers acute inferiority complex and rightly so.

      • PZIVJ

        You do sound like a stupid broken record.
        Consider the map of Syria before Russia intervened and what it is now.
        So stop with your friking stupidity that it’s all Putin’s fault.

  • Tommy Jensen

    So what?

    • Brother Thomas

      The question “so what?” is answered by asking another question: why the lie and fabrication from the IDF?

  • But this is not an absolution for those who create strategy, tactics and the rules of engagement of the air defense force. While inactive the Panzir-S object must have been well protected by the other Panzir-S (or the other) objects. Syrian air defense force lost four lives and one Panzir-S unit as a result of the bad tactics applied during the attack. What is a reason to wary is that the Syrian Air defense force had made the same kind of (mortal) mistake a couple of months ago. Making mistakes is human but, not learning by making mistakes is unforgivable.Those who are not able to learn from mistakes they make are defeated on the battlefield one way or another.

    • Willing Conscience (The Truths

      You’re right, but what if that wasn’t the case at all, what if there was another Pantsir system nearby that we didn’t see, perhaps it and the one attacked has already shot off all their missiles in a desperate attempt to stop all the incoming missiles and both were reloading, we can’t be really sure of anything unless they release more details.
      I hope your not right, but if you are right, you’re even more right when you say it’s unforgivable.

  • Leon

    Not the smallest condemnation by Russia of the Israeli attack.
    Sergei Shoigu impose the delivery of S300 after the IL20 “incident”. For Putin it was only an unfortunate circumstance
    It seems that Putin retook control. Syria is not autorise to use the S300. The “wonderfull”electronic jamming is switch of.
    An other possibility is that S300 is just BS. For information, never never has a S300 took down an aircraft in real war condition. Maybe a confirmation that Nettanyahu’s best friend is Putin who allows all this for Nettanyahu reelection.

  • BPGSJLBDLSE

    This is a good testing ground. The Pantsir needs some residual self-defense protection for when the main munitions are exhausted.

    • John Whitehot

      “The Pantsir needs some residual self-defense protection for when the main munitions are exhausted.”

      And I need Czech beer and Cuban cigars.

      No really. What about when the “residual self protection” is exhausted?

      Perhaps train the crews to shoot their pistols at the incoming missiles?

      • Sinbad2

        Perhaps if you set up 3 or 4 camo nets for every Panstir they could go to cover when out of ammo.
        It seems Russia shows the Arabs what to do, but he Syrians continue to do what they have always done, that’s why the Israelis have been able to kick sand in their faces for 50 years.

        • John Whitehot

          those are measures that are probably already in place.

          yet on a battlefield you can’t really count on 100% of things always going the right way.

          Israel has probably been trying hard to find a chance to hit a Pantsir, which is hinted at by they hitting an inactive one and then make a vid to make appear it was active.

  • Maʁsɛl

    if you look at the slow motion video (0:00-0:19), its not two separate videos.

    The first Pantsir is destroyed by two delilah missiles. First one hit the vehicle from the right side while the second one was still sending video recording back and goes to hit it towards its front.

    see slowed down clip here from RT.
    https://cl.ly/5e47dd43562e

    • John Whitehot

      “The first Pantsir”

      There is only one Pantsir at any moment in the vids. But I believe you’re correct in the sense that there are two videos depicting two distinct Pantsir launchers.

      the first one is taken from a munition that has been shot down by an active Pantsir (the incoming missiles visible), the second one is another munition, possibly in another place, hitting an inactive Pantsir.

      The Israelis just cut out the static from the camera of the first video that would prove the destruction of the munition.

  • FajarC438

    Dig some tunnels you lazy ass. Or get some cage so the drone would hit it first like mosquito net. Or make some cheap decoys that emit radar-like emissions. Why is it becomes a hobby to shut down radar, fgs? It’s hours before 2nd attack came. Why no reload? It’s not the first time. Do you wait for batches of advanced excavators from russia before starting to dig? Only vigilantes will survive neighboring thugs.

  • John Whitehot

    This proves that Israel is pursuing propaganda aims instead of military ones.

    In fact, they waste ordnance (I don’t believe it’s the above drone, in fact I believe it’s the usual AGM with a camera on the nose) on a target that poses no immediate threat, while other Pantsirs are shooting down their missiles. They also show only this video-montage, which means that all the attacks on active Pantsirs were defeated (The operator would see the incoming missile and the camera turning off with only static noise in view).

    They are either foolish, or desperate for propaganda, because presenting for the second time a hit on a inactive system as a victory seems the move of someone who really can’t do anything else. I never believe that countries or militaries are foolish, so I go for the second.

  • gustavo

    Russia knew ahead of time of this attack, and, as usual, Russia allowed Israel to make this attack to Syria land. Russia must answer about this double face behavior with respect to Israel and Syria.

    • John Whitehot

      yeah sure.

      Russia should retaliate by producing pics and videos with monkeys climbing trees and throwing shit, and explain that it’s the same behavioral conduit found behind israeli actions.

      that content would certainly be intellectually superior and contain more truth than the videos of hits on inactive syrian Pantsirs.

  • DankBeast

    Wew.. reloading in an open field without any kind of protection and making the same mistake twice, SADF personnel need some ass whipping.

  • NobodysaysBOO

    IF the Russians and Israelis KILL each other OFF the USA wins big time!!!!
    GO TO IT BOYZ!!!!

  • AG Korvin

    The pantsir is an integrated system, where usually 2 out of a 4-unit strong battery have their radars working and the others are receiving fire control via fiber optic or encrypted databus comms. Also the system evenly distributes the launches, so could not spend all its missiles.This is how all SAM systems work. So, it seems that the pantsirs has been operated by direct command mode which means that its operators are not so professional…

  • Prince Teutonic

    We have a Pantsir down, Pantsir down!

  • χρηστος

    whatever the case may be….israel used many resources just to prove that the Pantsir is very easy to kill. nonsense…….they must have launved dozens of missiles so as to supress the system……it eventually run out of ammo and missiles after firing constantly at multiple targets….and then they destroyed it…..no big deal…..Syria has 100s more

    The RF is just as beholden to the Jews as the Americans are. Pretty sad situation for all the indigenous peoples all over the world.

  • GHynson

    Doesn’t matter if the Russian crap was active or not. From the video of the S1 in the second part of the clip, it looks like it was abandoned when the convoy knew a missile strike was incoming. Anyhow, Russia can claim all they want about how effective their junk is, be we all know, hundreds of Russian ADS equipment are getting destroyed, with no losses to the attacking aircraft.

    They didnt lose the system, reports from Syria say the oerator missed low and took out the tyers but the system survived and will be put back into use – they say they lost a P-15 surveilance radar.
