Airstrikes On Government Facilities Reported In Latakia, Tartus, Homs Provinces. Russia Allegedly Employs Own Air Defenses

Latakia

UPDATE 2: A Russian IL-20 military plane disappeared from radars over the Mediterranean Sea during the strike, the Russian military says. According to the released statement, the strike on Syria was carried out by four Israeli F-16 warplanes. Russian radars also fixed missile launches from the French frigate Auvergne. MORE HERE

UPDATE 1: According to the Syrian state media, the SADF intercepted a number of missiles coming from the sea.

***

Late on September 17, airstrikes targeting government facitlities were reported in the Syrian provinces of Latakia, Tartus and Homs. Particularly, the strikes allegedly hit an industrial area in the city of Latakia.

The Syrian Air Defense Forces (SADF) are responding to the attack. Some sources report that air defense systems deployed at Russia’s Khmeimim Air Base were also employed.

According to Syrian sources, the airstrikes were reportedly carried out by the Israeli military.

The situation is developing.

    NUTANDYAHOO is mad about the deal between Russia ad Turkey.NO FAKE CHEMICAL ATTACK,as there is no excuse,,PUTIN has just checkmated him again..But now the real business will begin,israhell has openly declared war.

    • Peter Jennings

      Since the US/nato/isrealis are fond of proxy fighters, perhaps Syria, with their allies, could do the same. Maybe it’s time to unleash Hezbollah and give them all the support they could want. I’m sure there are those in Lebanon and the surrounding areas who have grudges to bare. A nice airdrop into Gaza would also give the IDF something to think about and would split the isreali forces in two and keep them busy at opposite ends of their stolen land.

        you mean, that old man sitting on a cloud, asking people to kill their own sons to prove their loyalty.

        • Jens Holm

          Thats right. Those in the warzones of the world are not on clouds.

          And Yes, proof of loyalty often includes killing own sons. But its seen all the time, that rulers kill sons, brothers, sisters, mothers by fear only.

          Thats why children should learn trust.

    I cannot believe the Putin weakness in Syria. Syria becoming second Afghanistan for Russia where Putin losing his power. Putin cannot win any war from US and UK because they have Israel which is enough strong than ISIS.

    • Spit

      Clearly something is going on that we do not know about.
      Yes Iran and Israel middle east.. whatever…I want to know details.

    • Albert Pike

      Putin is a Zionist and maybe part of the messianic movement. He will always sidestep from a confrontation with Israel…

      • Rob

        Putin is not Zionist but he scare from Israel because once Israel say that we will attack Syria. So then they do it and prove it, but Putin say we will destroy all terrorists but then think that how. Israel is that mafia group that defeated Russia in Afghanistan.

        • Albert Pike

          Putin is a believer in God, and that’s in my eyes always dangerous. But anyway, we will see, since today is 17.09. which is the anniversary of the death of Sabbatai Zevi, and anniversary of the christening day of Jacob Frank – therefore a day of revenge for the frankist/zionist movement .

          But You would like me to prove it – that’s impossible since nobody can look into a leaders head. So I can’t give you prove, but there is the word of a Russian official promising protection of Israel, in case of an Iranian Attack. Also there is his closeness to Lubavich Rabbi Berel Lazar…

            In my eyes the not believers has always been far more dangerous. Hitler, Stalin, Mao…and many many “official” belivers that certainly were and are not, despite they can say to act in accordance with what they (don’t) belive.
            At least who belives in God and Christ has more difficulties to “justify” their bad actions.

          • Jens Holm

            You might chech a few history books about it and add religios incidents.

            “At least who belives in God and Christ has more difficulties to “justify” their bad actions”

            By not answering to any “God” I might really be answering only to God.

          • Albert Pike

            All three Hitler, Stalin, and Mao where Freemasons – so they must have believed in something. What I mean with dangerous is – if one believes in one of the three dessert religions, and he see’s a chance to fulfill prophesy – to let the realm of the thousand years of peace through his action -or non action- begin, then that is for a religious person much more dangerously tempting, and likely, as for a guy, who doesn’t believe in anything. Anyway Freemasonry is strongly connected to the messianic movement, and without Hitler – there would be no Israel. Stalin was more a power maniac, and what Mao and Anne Louise Strong where smoking, is from a Chinese point of interest difficult to grab…

          • zman

            Not really. Do you remember how many times GW referred to the word ‘crusade’? Don’t think that the loony evangelicals missed it…it’s the reason we were able to attack the ME…eternally. Today we call it Islamophobia…they call it their holy war.

          • Jens Holm

            Putin is no believer of God. If so he would not behave like he does.

            If anything he is believer in having enough corruption money for himselv.

          The history of the Khazaria comes from the book ‘the 13th tribe’, written by Arthur Koestler, who was a friend and fellow MI5 agent of MI5 boss Victor Rothschild (Jacob’s dad). He wrote it for the British. So anything which involves the Khazaria Story is questionable. Any way the word Nazi meant National Zionists, and Ashkenazi is a word for German, and the most common language of all Ashkenazim was Yiddish – which uses German words in a Hebrew similar build sentence. Why would the Khazars use German words?

          So forget the evil Khazars – go instead to the first Jewish Messiah Sabbatai Zevi of 1666 which was britsh east india company financed. He had at a time more 50% of all Jews as followers. The leftover of him are the Donmeh Turks, of which Erdogan is one of them. They where all ready everything the other way around Jews and had on the 9th of Ave a wife swapping party. The next fascinating guy was Jacob Frank who was Donmeh and became Christian and was Rothschild financed. The Frankist also had a sex magical party on the 9th of Av in Karlsbad Bohemia – that where the Bohemian Groove comes from. Out of this messianic movement developed Satanism, since all religious rules where inverted. The idea was kabbalahistic one since God would only come back to earth if either all men become good or all men became sinners. The Frankists believe it’s easier to make all men into sinners. That where all the Hollywood Sick stuff comes from. The Lubavicher basically believe the same and are intermixed with the Frankists. Since the house of Rothschild has Lubavich and Frankists roots, the job of Koestlers book was to hide this.

          So yes I am sure…

    • John Whitehot

      i can’t believe any real person would tell everything you say.
      propagandists, zionists and scumbags, yes. but other people? cmon now.

      • FlorianGeyer

        My personal view is that President Putin has totally exposed FUKUS +Israel as terrorist sponsors and that he fully expected Erdogans actions to protect his mercenaries in Idlib.

        President Putin will now sit back as the gangs in Idlib start fighting each other again. This will only weaken Erdogan as those who fund the most extreme will also fight for their share of the loot :)

        President Putin will also have considered the Kurds in all of this I would think and they will be emboldened to further confront the Turks .

        The Homs /Deir Ezzor desert can be cleared and the pressure is already being put on Al Tanaf as a complete gang of 5000 people, including terrorists trained by the US Military , now wish leave and to reconcile with the Syrian Government.

        Hollywood wars are won in hours. Real wars are not.

  • RichardD

    The Syrian government coalition may start pushing the no fly zone out over the sea for the baby rapers if that’s where the attack originated. The Russian air defense system use was probably for drones.

  • Spit

    I am really starting to wounder.
    What exactly is it that the Israelis are doing attacking Syria at random?

    The Ukrainians are retarded trying to ww2 copy pasta, but What exactly is it that is going on?
    are the Israelis attacking Special Units? Maybe they are keeping the Iranians from testing drone technology?

  • RichardD

    The baby rapers may have launched cruise missiles from aircraft over Lebanon. That then headed out to sea and came back over land in Syria.

            Personally, the story that Israeli jets are responsible is a definite possibility.
            But maybe a cover for a French strike on a valuable Russian target.
            If it was revealed the French shot it down,
            Russia would be forced to sink it, risking an immediate US / UK attack.
            Yes that French ship may have an accident.

        S-400 is not a Missile, it is a Small Army.

        • TiredOfBsToo

          It doesn’t make sense that countries which have funneled terrorists into Syria such as Turkey and Saudi Arabia can acquire these systems, but Syria, which is under attack not only from those proxy forces, but also, Israel, the US and it’s vassal states, can’t get them. I’m sure Israel for one, would be better behaved if Syria had them.

          • TiredOfBsToo

            If an aircraft is firing missiles, an S-400 would do the trick. Not for shooting down cruise missiles, but high flying aircraft launching them.

            One can see what the meeting between Putin and Trump was all about; US gets east of Euphrates, Turkey takes Idlib and the jews keep Golan. Russia maintains a naval base in Syria and then they will all live happily ever after.

            Russia’s effort in Syria was never about the base, it’s about the gas pipelines.
            Within weeks of Syria signing a deal with Iran, the US started its attack on Syria.

            Russia moved into the Syrian conflict occurred 1 month after the US stopped the South stream pipeline. by threatening Bulgaria.

            US, UK and France have been trying to overthrow the father and son Assad for decades. The incident you mention is more recent, before that is the Golan Heights incident and quite a few others and then there is Turkey who wants part if not all of Syria..

          • TiredOfBsToo

            If it has the weapons it needs, why does it keep getting hit. Israel continues to use aircraft which requires a good S-400 up it a*s to rein Israel in and force it to abide by International law; a few dead pilots would go a long way. In any case, why can Syria’s known enemies, supporters of terrorism get them from Russia, but not the country that is target of Israel, the West and Saudi Arabia.

            As long as Russia doesn’t put it’s foot down. This time, the West has executed 14 Russian servicemen in an unprovoked attack. I’m waiting to see what will happen when all of the evidence is in into which country is responsible for the shoot down. The Russians have a pretty good idea, though they’ll want to have solid evidence before they retaliate.

          • Ricky Miller

            You mean an anti-submarine prop driven aircraft? Probably not shot down by Israeli F-16’s but by SAM fired from warship. Just a guess. And I would say that the strategy of deploying to a country and not employing your weapons in total is the humiliation here, not any proven defeat of the technology. Russia has invited this travesty by not specifying that an attack on Syria would be considered an attack on Russian forces too, as the USA has done with the SDF. This was no doubt because the amount of force Russia has in Syria is actually quite small and Russia’s missile inventory is limited there.

          • Jon

            The Russian spy plane was shot down by the Russian supplied air defense system provided to the Syrians and fired by them taking out the spy plane: wrong place wrong time. They were firing at the Israeli planes, which avoided the missile which hit the sitting duck. Friendly fire incident. De-conflict immediately.

          • Ricky Miller

            Baloney. The strike by Israel and France was illegal under standing U.N. Treaties. If Syria hadn’t been under attack than no missiles would have needed to be fired by Syrian air defense forces and the returning Russian plane lands safely. The risks taken to attack was an escalation and if I were President of the Russian Federation there would already be a large strike, outbound.

          • Jon

            De-confliction processes are imperfect. This was a tragic accident. The risk of such an incident getting out of control is very high. The Russian forces who did not immediately retaliate against the French vessel which it turns out had nothing to do with this tragedy are to be commended for level headed,calm behavior. The Russian command structure likewise is to be commended for sorting out what happened and not reacting disastrously. Finally I urge all hot heads who are disparaging Putin to recognize that he is responsible for saving thousands of innocent lives, by calling off the ill conceived offensive. If he now advances a political solution that freezes status of forces; allows Turkey to absorb and pacify the various rebel factions; and leaves Israel and Iran on their own to resolve their separate issues; he will deserve a Nobel.

        Try reading up on what the S400 is designed to do.
        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-400_missile_system

        • TiredOfBsToo

          Shoot down aircraft, ballistic missiles, cruise missiles etc. There are reports of 2 aircraft having been shot down, don’t know if that’s true, but if it is, that’s exactly what those weapons are for.

            What you don’t seem to understand is the S400 integrates with other systems, it acquires the target and then decides which weapon to use. If the target was an ICBM, or an AWAC 400 kliks away it would use it’s own 40N6 missile.
            If however the target was a low flying F16 20 kliks away, it would use a Pantsir to shoot it down.

            Would you use a 5 inch gun to shoot a rabbit?

            They have been using the S400 since the day it arrived, but until the US starts using nukes, it will most likely not fire one of its own missiles.

          • putinbeater

            you are sooooo wrong

          • Hind Abyad

            sooooo wrooong toooo

          • TiredOfBsToo

            I got your point. It’s exactly why the Pantsir is used for smaller game. Of course the S400 has various missiles designed for different tasks so there’s absolutely nothing wrong with taking out an aircraft beyond the reach of other weapons.

          • Sinbad2

            Agreed.

          • Sinbad2

            Not so much smaller game, as closer game.

            Russian AA are multi layered systems, at long range the S400 missiles strike the target, at closer range other systems are used. The idea is if a missile makes it past one defense another defense cuts in, if that fails, yet another line of defense cuts in. It’s for more sophisticated than a Patriot battery, and we only see a small part of their air defenses in Syria.

            Remember the US has been threatening Russia for 70 years, they do defense very well.

      • TiredOfBsToo

        It’s also interesting that Syria had been threatened by an overwhelming response from the West in the event of CW use. As there has been an agreement for no assault on Idlib and therefor no false flag CW attack forthcoming, and NATO sailed to Syria, and the assault lasted for over an hour…. it’s just possible that the psychopaths running the Empire decided they were losing the opportunity as there would be NO CW attack available for the excuse they desired. We’ll know soon I’m sure.

        • Sinbad2

          Now you might see the S400 being used, shooting down the Israeli planes as they take off.

          • TiredOfBsToo

            A very good idea if they’re heading for Lebanon.

          • Sinbad2

            Better still, just take out the Israeli air force on the ground.
            A few small tactical nukes, and Russia could test its new hypersonic weapons.

        • John Mason

          Not too difficult to fabricate anything else. This could be like the last assault, all show but unfortunately Russia lost a plane and the crew. Happens when you try to play in the middle, you get hit from all sides.

      • John Mason

        Exactly, hitler tried and failed, maybe better luck next time.

      • AM Hants

        Do Syria need them? Owing to how well they are doing with the upgraded S200, plus, other toys?

        • TiredOfBsToo

          They must, for it hasn’t been able to impress upon their enemies that it’s a bad idea to fire on the Syrian state. I look at any missiles successfully striking Syrian territory as an indication that their defense is inadequate. Besides, why do Syria’s enemies qualify for advanced defense systems but not Syria? With an S-400, Israel couldn’t fire on Syria from Lebanon for example.

          • AM Hants

            Money perhaps? Is Russia expected to gift them?

            Russia ‘reserves right to response’ after saying Israel’s actions led to downing of Il-20 by Syria…

            The Russian military accused their Israeli counterparts for causing the shot-down of a Russian Il-20 plane by the Syrian air defense forces, which were responding to an Israeli air raid on Latakia… https://www.rt.com/news/438687-israel-russia-response-il20/

            Reminds me of USS Liberty, when Israel did similar to the US, but, tried to blame it on Egypt.

            ‘We were close to direct conflict between Russia & US inside Syria’ – Bashar Assad

            ‘… ‘Russia deterred larger-scale attack on Syria’
            “The Russians announced publicly that they are going to destroy the bases that are going to be used to launch missiles, and our information – we don’t have evidence, we only have information, and that information is credible information – that they were thinking about a comprehensive attack all over Syria, and that’s why the threat pushed the West to make it on a much smaller scale,” the Syrian president said…

            “We were close to have direct conflict between the Russian forces and the American forces, and fortunately, it has been avoided, not by the wisdom of the American leadership, but by the wisdom of the Russian leadership,” Assad told Gazdiev. “We need the Russian support, but we need at the same time to avoid the American foolishness in order to be able to stabilize our country…

      • Charlie rad

        The S-300 is more than adequate . Syria doesn’t need the Range of the S-400.
        Russia is aggressively Upgrading Syria’s existing air Defenses right now. So Israel is trying to get some shots in before Russia is finished. If that doesn’t do it, then Russia will bring in the S300s that Iran bought for Syria. Russia signed treaties agreeing not to give them the S-300 (for some considerations). The Upgrade will be adequate.

      • Charlie rad

        Also; Most of the Israeli attacks are small air to ground missiles fired from Lebanon & Israel. Today was from far in the Mediterranean Sea. It’s VERY expensive shooting down these $100K missiles with S-300 or S-400 $500K missiles. It’s like using a Laptop to throw at annoying squirrels on your fence. When you can use a rock or BB gun.

      • Zionism = EVIL

        If the Syrians, Iranians and Hezbollah were properly armed then they can defend themselves. An average Russian is totally ignorant and does not even know where Syria is or why their sons should die there. This is a local fight and if Russia wants to help Syria it should hand over S-400 and other modern weapons to SAA and Hezbollah.

At least the League of Nations had the integrity to expel it’s more violent members. The current villains get whatever they want from the U.N.

        • TiredOfBsToo

          I wonder if after Russia positively finishes reviewing the evidence and finds that the French frigate firing at the time the Russian plane disappeared is responsible, will sink it. If the French are guilty and Russia doesn’t sink the frigate, will that make Putin a liar or cause him to lose face?

          • AM Hants

            Would you wish to be in his shoes? The end of the day, crew, passengers, plus, plane are missing, with Russia trying to find out what exactly happened.

          • TiredOfBsToo

            Russia now knows what happened. Israel used the Russian plane for cover while attacking Syria. Putin has hardliners behind him and I believe he’s going to have to act. Since 15 servicemen were killed, at the very least, Russia needs to declare a no fly zone for Israel. Israel has expressed sorrow for the death of the Russian servicemen. It’s time to have Israel express sorrow for the loss of 15 Israeli pilots next time they attempt an attack.

    • Sinbad2

      Probably why they shot down the Russian plane, the US needs a war, it cannot survive without a war.

    • John Whitehot

      probes are also useful when you find out that the air defense has no meaningful weaknesses.

      in that case, the military goes to the politician, and he tells him that any operation will have to include horrifying losses. the politician then decides about the lives of those involved.

    The First Place the Syrians would attack is as close to the water/ocean as possible.

    by doing so, this would make American Missiles less effective and allow the Russians to put an air defence base on the border with Turkey.
    This will effectively isolate pockets.

      “Make Special note how the Russians are no longer using the White Swan bombers for a long time”

      Easy. There are no more targets for them. You use strategic bombers to 1- hit strategical importance targets or 2- to show others that they are capable to conduct that mission.

    some simple logic will work things out Russian and Turkish presidents are working things out. Keeping mind south front stated the turkey has fruitful relations the terrorists (al-qada) and Russia and turkey just achieved an agreement on a DMZ.

    plus the Syrians are having local elections, there is some government changes or political concessions going on.

    So with these steps in the right direction. (al-quada) groups and asked Israel and NATO nations to attack the SAA, this is to undermine the progress of this deal. By angering Russia and driving a rift between it and turkey.

    Please keeping mind of this one fact. If There is a DMZ in idlib, So if there any short range Mortar attacks or further drone attacks it means no more Fruitful relations with terror groups as any military operation by SAA in idlib reduces the Turkish influence.

    But if a DMZ is formed and holds, as well as the al-tanf group accepting relocation deal. We must remember the kurds arrested the Arab candidates for the local elections. So the Kurds are going to get it, in near future.

    • John Whitehot

      imo, they can try to keep the terrorists in idlib alive all they want, but the operational truth is that they cannot complete the task for which they have been hired – ousting Assad.

            i thought you meant the 4th video.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            I did not imagine anything, we already have the targets they will try to hit and is no way to stop all missiles fired, even if the russians activated their own defences. But waiting for a translation of the one reporting what is happening before I am sure.

          • John Whitehot

            not sure what you mean, anyway i’m not arguing anything else than there is no missile hit on the videos on this page, included the one you mention.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            I am not arguing either just talking to you not trying to convince you of anything, but what you think started the fire on the building complex, while Syria is under missile attack.

            Our info is several missiles hit targets now what you want to believe is your own business but you know tomorrow what you assume today and you argue about it. What you need to worry is if finally the russians will take a solid stand and how they respond.

          • John Whitehot

            you aren’t going to make me call you all the names in the world.

            you foolishly stated there’s a missile in a vid, i replied, with reason, that there is not.

            if you want to keep up with the idiocy of saying that “there must have been a missile” you can go on forever, my reply is “not in the videos”, so let’s make it that it will be the same reply for all the next comment you are going to drop saying that there must have been a missile.

            in any case, i saw your provocation since the second reply, so make me a favor and gfy.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            well I know what I said and the third video it is from a missile hit in Latakia now if you so low level mentality to insist that it was not and want to call me all the names in the world, have a go on it and we see where it ends up. As I said common sense is not your strongest point or putting the dots together.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            you dont care……….. stabber little boy having a fit. Learn not to play with words and learn when you wrong not to push it and show your self what really is, kid.

      You got a source?

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        It is part of my job and life to have sources my friend, in the business I am in. When I post my personal opinion, I may be wrong as it is speculation, that is based on speculation as I see and analyze what I observer and what info I get, from around the world from my group.

        When I report facts it is just that facts ones I may know a little earlier than the rest but ones they become sooner or later known as indeed a fact. Is this answer your question?

        • Sinbad2

          So what is the source, can’t you answer a simple question?

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            when you ask me something intelligent yes, I can. When you ask a question like this one and expect me to answer it, it is when you make me wonder your age and your common sense, if you have any.

    • AmericanCossack

      I read that on Sputnik. I’m willing to bet it was shot down. I also read a French Frigate launched the cruise missile attack.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        we have similar information here. I did not know they reported it on sputnik, let me check.

        Thank you.

        • Sinbad2

          You are so full of it.

    A bitch slap to the Russian military

    Even RT was forced to post vids and pictures of the burning facilities of Latakia and other cities next to Russian bases

    Weak air defenses getting bombed without retaliation

    • Mountains

      This American truly hates Russia. His been laying down the pipe

    • Sinbad2

      Wigger you are so impotent.

  • Sinbad2

    Notice how the hasbara posters turned up just before the news of the Russian plane being shot down?
    This was a planned provocation, not an accident.

    • John Whitehot

      if the plane was really shot down, it could be a fuck up as the intended target could have been the Mainstay AWACS. makes little sense for israelis to hit an antisubmarine plane, unless of course they had some revenge to take and could not target any plane capable of defending itself/

  • Joe

    Poor Syria cannot even strike back at the ships. Even Hez in 2006 could .

    Pathetic Russia’s not to arm allies that help save Russia

    • John Whitehot

      poor you schizophrenic serf.

      • Joe

        Sad and very true , we really go schizophrenic having to bear all the silly logic that Syrians should die for other countries and yet do not get full protection from your countries which support terrorists that kill your people in the streets . Yet you guys cry when these do ..

        As for us, we just say , you deserve it .

        Syrian war is all about saving the Russian economy … the pipeline actually. There is nothing that Syrians threaten anyone to deserve all these destrcutions yet guys like you cheer on …

        Yes, like you say , we have gone schizophrenic serf.

        • John Whitehot

          i’m all for saving the Russian economy rather than see bankster pigs and their schizoid goons getting fatter and keep robbing working people and ruining their lives.

          • Joe

            good for you ..

    • Concrete Mike

      All they could shoot down was a turbo prop… see how it goes both ways???

  • Mountains

    Israel took out apparently a Russian war plane while attacking Latakia and Tartous in the process. Plot tickens

    • John Whitehot

      the plane was an antisubmarine 4 engine turboprop, and was returning to base.
      it’s not known if israel attacked it.

  • Tudor Miron
    • Sinbad2

      Obviously France coordinated with Israel, so both are guilty.

  • RichardD

    It looks like the Jew world order miscreants have dropped any pretense of feigned righteousness, because their lies and false flags have been outed so many times. And are just resorting to straight out and out criminal aggression:

    “A Russian military Il-20 aircraft with 14 service members on board went off the radars during an attack by four Israeli jets on Syria’s Latakia province, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

    Air traffic controllers at the Khmeimim Air Base “lost contact” with the aircraft on Wednesday evening, during the attack of Israeli F-16 fighters on Latakia, said the MOD. The plane was 35 kilometers off the coast of Syria when it vanished.

    Russian radars also registered the launch of missiles from a French frigate in the Mediterranean on the evening of September 17.”

    • John Mason

      Shit nation anyway who crucified jesus and are therefore cursed.

      • RichardD

        It needs to go.

    • Dick Von Dast’Ard

      You would have to think, if intentionally brought down, the Russians are going to have to respond in some way.

      • RichardD

        I’m guessing that they already have and it just isn’t public yet. But if this report is true, and considering the source it probably is. You can be assured that the no fly zone is going to get bigger and better.

        • Dick Von Dast’Ard

          Well it is forming, from my way of thinking, (if intentionally brought down) nothing short of an act of war directly made against Russia.

          • RichardD

            I completely agree. And I’m sure that the Russians have war gamed it out in advance and will reply in an appropriate manner.

          • RichardD

            It’s also an act of desperation for losers running out of options.

    • John Whitehot

      some (US) sources said that it may have been unintentionally hit by syrian defenses while repelling the attack. even in that case, responsibility is on the party who attacked Syria.

      • Dick Von Dast’Ard

        Sounds like a desperate way to negotiate away the problem.

        Which isn’t going to go away now.

        • John Whitehot

          idk, being the US saying that they ‘d know that Russia would already know if it’s true or not.

        • RichardD

          Probably planned in advance.

      • Exactly. If a criminal shoots at police and police return fire accidentally hits someone else, the criminal is responsible.

      • Sinbad2

        The Americans will be making excuses for their masters.

  • putinbeater

    russian AD systems were full of holes…

    • Dick Von Dast’Ard

      So could be a French frigate or Israeli corvette.

      • Sinbad2

        If Russia intends revenge against France, a French ship, maybe not this one will simply disappear without trace.

        • John Whitehot

          you mean, a stealth wreckage?

          • Sinbad2

            What wreckage, a ship can sink in seconds.

  • Sinbad2

    I assume the Russian plane has radar, I also assume that Russian radar ashore would be tracking the plane. So a normal missile attack should have set off alarms in the plane and ashore.

    I think that possibly Israel used an F35, to get very close to the Russian plane, and shot it down, so the Russian plane could not take evasive action.

    • Dick Von Dast’Ard

      It’s a slow flying ASW plane, we know IDF F-16’s were carrying out the attack and a French frigate.

    • putinbeater

      but you always wrote, that f-35 is shit, because russkie radars see them :P

      • John Whitehot

        but he never wrote, that the airplane in question is a civilian turboprop converted to ASW uses – like the other user stated but you ignored.

        • putinbeater

          asw should see, and big radars in latakia, too

          • RichardD
          • PZIVJ

            Do you think idiot Netanyahu realizes he has crossed a serious line here.
            It does not matter who’s missile hit the IL-20, Israel is responsible for the loss of plane and 14 crew.

          • RichardD

            Using Russians as human shields was a bad idea. The Israeli electorate would just replace Netanyahu with someone similar. Israel and Judaism need to go. The place to start is with dejudifying Palestine and the US where combined 83% of the planet’s Jews live. Judaism is a malevolent ideology that should be extinguished in a humane and lawful manner so that it goes extinct.

      • Sinbad2

        I could explain how stealth is about reducing the size of the aircraft on radar, and how range and frequency are major factors, but you wouldn’t understand.

        • putinbeater

          i know betetr than you. but i can put here your odas on ruskie systems and how you shit on yankee stealth technology. you were double wrong.

    • John Brown

      The S-200 was fired at the Israeli F-16 earlier which drew the missile out towards the IL-20, then the F-16 kept the IL-20 in a line-of-sight between it and the missile, probably till the missile was out of range of identifying friend or foe, and used the heat signature to kill the nearest thing..

      • Sinbad2

        Yes now that more information has come out I think you are 100% right.

  • Dick Von Dast’Ard

    Russian radars also registered the launch of missiles from a French frigate in the Mediterranean on the evening of September 17.

    Seems to me the Russians saw the aggressor.

    • putinbeater

      saw and waved

      • Dick Von Dast’Ard

        I think you are going to see strategic bombing of western backed terrorists.

        • Sinbad2

          Yes and there are French troops in Syria.
          But first the Russians will make sure they have the right aggressor.
          They are very systematic, it might take a few days for them to formulate a plan, and the French and the Israelis will be on high alert at the moment.
          Revenge is a dish best served cold.

  • RichardD

    Syria shooting down a Russian plane would be like Russia shooting a Russian plane. Highly unlikely.

    • χρηστος

      Israel has great electronic warfare capabilities…..do you think its unlikely that it managed to confuse the Syrian air defence and think that it was an enemy aircraft?

      • RichardD

        They shouldn’t have been allowed that close to that type of plane in the first place to use the Russians as human shields. EW is part of any operation of this type. What factor it played I don’t know. If the Jews hadn’t been allowed to fly in close proximity it wouldn’t have happened.

        • John Brown

          Yes exactly.

          • RichardD

            They probably won’t be again. Which could put a real crimp on IAF operations.

  • Joe Doe

    Putin is very naive, he is selling Syria for hope that Turkey will leave NATO. Putin was pleasing before Americans, now he is pleasing Turkey and Syria is paying the price. Syria can’t depend on Russia any more. Russia will slowly agree to divide Syria into pieces. Idlib will go to Turkey, East Syria will go to Americans and its allies, Golan Heights will go to Israel. Putin sold Syria

    • Dick Von Dast’Ard

      You appear to be forgetting the people that have actually been doing the winning on the ground… Iran and Hezbollah.

      • putinbeater

        they are nothing without air support. before russians they lost almost whole syria.

        • Dick Von Dast’Ard

          Well the Russian aren’t going anywhere.
          Normally they just double down.
          I’d imagine the retaliation is going to be spectacular.
          Could be symmetric or asymmetric.

    • Mountains

      It’s not putin who is naive but Assad because he sold the land to Russia

    Lets be honest SAA, Hezbollah and Iran lost the war back in 2014 and then the entrance of Russia and the US on the otherside defeated the insurgency for Assad. All the Red zone is Russian territory and they can drill oil freely so putin have not lost but won alot since Assad sold the land to him freely and the same goes to the US on the yellow area and Turkey in the green.

    Assad has already lost when he signed the deals on with the russians for them to arrive in order to avoid his demise without his strength because he had no means to defeat the insurgency and he had to pay the Russians for them to save him.

    But all in all the biggest losers are SAA, Hezbollah and Iran while the later is vastly overrated since they lost to effin Civilian insurgency in syria then had to sell the land to Russia in order to survive

      and? russia is weak, this is the most important message of today!

      • Dick Von Dast’Ard

        Well they shall look weaker, unless they do retaliate…
        Which is why, (If this is an intentional downing?) those that did it have grossly miscalculated.

        • Sinbad2

          Yes, but looking weak is not the same as being weak.
          If it was an American plane, the US would kill thousands, of innocents, just so they could appear tough.
          Remember the Lockerbie bombing?
          Iran did the bombing, in revenge for the US shooting down an Iranian passenger plane.
          But the US could not attack Iran, so they blamed Libya, and killed thousands of innocent Libyans, just so they could look strong.
          But really it just displayed their weakness of character.

          • Dick Von Dast’Ard

            I have to disagree, this is about prestige now.
            The message has to be unambiguous.

          • Sinbad2

            Exactly, if France did it, and Russia sank the frigate, France could use it in the EU to stop Nord Stream2.
            Although France and Germany seem close, France Germany and Britain all see each other as threats.

          • John Brown

            France and Germany and Britain are all conquered slaves of the racist supremacists global Jewish confederate slave empire dictatorship. If they pretend to see each other as threats it is because that is what their Jewish slave masters want in order to hide the Jewish power that enslaves them. It seems to work on you quite well. Their slave master may order one the to harm the other to hide the real power.

  • Tommy Jensen

    I told this would happen 3 years ago. But you refused to listen. Today you see I was right and you were losers.

  • Brother Thomas

    Israel is trying to provoke a response that will create a wider conflict, drawing the US and NATO in. At the moment it is hoping for Russia to respond, but it is also quite capable of launching a USS Liberty style false flag attack against NATO and blame Syria, Iran, and Russia.

    • John Brown

      Yes exactly. Israel may now sink that French Frigate Auvergnes. The wages of following their racist supremacist evil Jewish masters is death. Better for Russia to let the french boat go, have an investigation ask for reparations apology etc. from France etc.

  • Sinbad2

    Although there has not been a direct accusation, it seems that Russia is blaming France.
    I bet that French frigate is heading west at maximum revs.

    • PZIVJ

      This would make it very loud.
      Heading towards the very quiet sub to the west. :)

  • Fred Dozer

    “A Russian military Il-20 aircraft with 14 service members on board went off the radars during an attack by four Israeli jets on Syria’s Latakia” The Russians cannot believe their “Partners” could do such a thing to them. Otherwise, a plane with no offense, or defense, would be protected by the best available Russian Fighter Planes. This is war, not a, “drive in the country”.

  • temujin1970

    The West now knows Russia does not want war and now are directly attacking Russian assets. They want Syria and will not back down. Whenever Russia trys to de escalate the West ramps up the pressure. They are now convinced that Russia will talk but not respond.
    Russia has been issued a challenge. Either respond to this provocation and go to war or leave Syria.
    Balls in your court Putin.
