At Least One Israeli F-15 Was Damaged Additionally To Downed F-16I In Recent Encounter With Syrian Forces – Media

Support SouthFront

Additionally to the downed F-16I of the Israeli Air Force, at least one Israeli F-15 warplane wad damaged by a Syrian missile and was forced to make an emergency landing on February 10, the Al Arabiya TV network reported citing own sources.

According to unconfirmed report, in total 3 Israeli warplanes were damaged additionally to the F-16 which was downed by the Syrian forces earlier on February 10.

If these reports are at least partly confirmed this will be one of the biggest Israeli failures in the recent time.

In turn, the Israeli Defense Forces claim that the February 10 encounter was a kind of success because they had been allegedly able to deliver a significant damage to the Syrian military and its allies.

Meanwhile, some Lebanese activists set up a banner recalling the F-16I shotdown at the border with the Israeli-held area:

israhell playing with fire – will be the one burnt in hell fire forever

FlorianGeyer

It will be a Holocaust in Hell for Israel I trust , after what has been done to the Palestinians.

jerry hamilton

The trouble is that now Israel have a bloody nose, they will take it out on the Palestinians.

Joe Doe

Damage means very little. Shut down sounds better, but for that Assad needs get better Air Defense System

FlorianGeyer

For every action by Israel there is a reaction inn due course.

I hope you are not as impatient with your wife/partner Joe. If you are ‘she’must be very frustrated :)

Joe Doe

I don’t have wife and I am safe. Otherwise I will be conquered and slave

FlorianGeyer

Lol.

FlorianGeyer

Sadly that is true and the action of all tyrants.

The world has watched and made ineffective declarations in the UN for 70 years and Israel is still able to control the largest concentration camp the world has ever seen in Gaza.

Starlight

Nah- the jews don’t even care about those ‘sub-Humans’. The ‘master race’ considers palestinians safe and reliable perfect victim class already. When the jews next holocaust Gaza, it will be purely for a little bit of ‘fun’.

The jews want to take out the ‘sub-Humans’ they consider an actual regional impediment to ‘greater Israel’. The jews really want Pakistan and Iran- but those are ‘problems’ for the true forces of the Deep State, never Israel. So Israel has to settle for second best- Syria and Lebanon.

The jews have laid out in great detail their planning for the coming jewish genocide in Lebanon. But they want to murder so many they do NOT wish to begin before America starts direct strikes on Iran. The jews want a real holocaust in Lebanon, and fear even the most jewish controlled nations of the West would balk at the mass murder of hundreds of thousands there UNLESS over-shadowed by a much bigger war.

Understand the actual psychology of death cults and power cults like present day judaism. Judaism is NOT an organised religion- like ISIS it merely masquerades as one. Most powerful jews openly boast their ‘atheist’ position.

The real deal is the coming Iran war, the the regional wars it will trigger and over-shadow- allowing the regional wars to be infinitely more bloody than otherwise. The nearly here Iran War will mark the true beginning of WW3.

Merijn

There will be no WWIII with whom? Retards Against the World? Who is going to fight for them Retards? Cyborgs perhaps…. Darpa might have created a couple of’m in the meantime…….I see two options either they push the button & create the second coming of Christ …….or them Evil Demons will be Rounded up, and after a democratic and of course fair trial executed……

Ivan Freely

With whom? Against the China-Russia-Iran camp.

Merijn

I ain’t going to fight no Russian, Chinese or Iranian Camp!! Why should I…… for Queen & Country….???!!!!! Bwahahahaaa…. Besides that I have Russian, Chinese & Iranian friends….. they are good folks

Ivan Freely

Who knows. If you’re an American, the draft could be brought back. IIRC, Obama made it possible for women to be drafted. It’ll be interesting to see lady-boys and princesses on the front lines fighting.

Merijn

Yeah, a lot of Veterans in the States ain’t to happy about the way they were treated by “their” government after service…..you gotta try something different

Merijn

We all know what Mister Obama did…… or didn’t….or was…..or wasn’t….did they fix that birth certificate by the way…..?? Perhaps they can arrange me one too…. maybe I like to be President some day….. you never know….

Overwatch D.VA

fun fact , obama’s wife was accused as transvestite by a famous entertain media person .. not long after she made the comment she was dead..

coincidence ? no such thing

François

Yes, some day Israël will harvest what it has been sowing

Irebukeu

This will not end well for Syria. They had better seek some kind of peace with Israel before it is too late to stop the grinding wheel. If the Russians find the risks to their aircraft too great or find some deal on Ukraine what will become of Syria? America and Israel will undercut its ability to fly anything.Then al-Qaeda will do what they do. This will not end well for Syria. They had better seek someone kind of peace with Israel before it is too late. Sykes-Picot are rolling in their graves.

Joe Doe

Without better Air Defense System, most likely Assad will have no choice, as Russia become punching bag and paper tiger. Assad need to look for other options. Maybe China could provide better protection

Deo Cass

Iran and Hezbollah are good enough. They are the only true friends of Syria and the Palestinian cause. All other Arabs and Turkey have sold their souls to the Zionist anti-Christ.

Joe Doe

Most likely you right, but without better military hardware they have very little chance to succeeds. Defiantly SAA or Hezbollah need better Air Defense System

François

How could Syria could seek peace with Israël knowing that Syria is part of the Yinon Plan for the “Great Israël”? Also, please understand that even under peace treaties, Israël is not faithful with its allies

Joe Doe

Syria is alone against many enemy’s and has very little chance to survive. Assad has two choices, find better protector or seek peace, which will not bee 100% secure

Deo Cass

Syria has God on its side and Syria is much more powerful than Lebanon which defeated the Zionists twice.

Joe Doe

Well, than good luck! Syria will be divided and conquer

electron

Will? They have already lost 500,000 people killed, as many wounded, 5 million left the country; 8 million IDP’s, $500 – $600 BILLION in infrastructure damages; lost 90% of its oil reserves, hydro electrical reserves, and its best arable land; and 40% of its territory! They are under crippling economic sanctions that prevent even the basic medicine and oxygen for pre-born babies to be imported, while some neighboring countries are using their borders to arm and assist the tero wrist gangs.

It is up against the wall; like a cornered beast, it has nowhere to back down to.

Irebukeu

Yet they claim they will defend all of Syria? Its time to make peace with Kurds and Israelis. Save something of Syria before its all gone.

Robert Duran

Like Egypt and Jordan. The yinon plan is bullshit. In each country are stupid nationalists, who dream abou mega version of their country. IL can not control 100 million arabs. IL is not able to control common state with palestinians.

Irebukeu

Stop agitating for its destruction. Stop with Hezbollahs rocketry programs. Make the peace so Syria can fight the war it has right now. Without Iran, Hezbollah and Russia Syria would be Overrun by Sunnis by now. Do you think Russia will stand shoulder to shoulder with Assad always?

1691

His “agitating” has nothing to do with the destruction of israhell. It will be self-inflicted. What goes around comes around.

François

In that context Israël has agressive position in Palestina and has been supporting terrorists in Syria since the beginning, hence the Hezbollah defense position. Sunnis in Syria are not against Assad, the antagonism between Shia and Sunnis is the secret dream of Zionist-US empire, so to trigger Muslim world collaspe in the benefit of Israël.

Irebukeu

Sunnis in Syria are not against Assad ? huh?

Robert Duran

No they are not..

François

The facts are here: Before the famous “Arab spring” in 2011, Sunnis never rebeled against Assad. The war only started under Zionist-OTAN instigation.

Graeme Rymill

The Sunnis rebelled against Assad’s father – Hama 1982

François

Yep, but in the following 30 years?… If the problem was so deep, civil war would have started much before. Furthermore, Sunni that are the 75% in Syria are nowadays supporting Assad against terrorism. Without that, Syrian Army would have collapsed a long time ago

Roddy Wehrmacht

Majority of the SAA is Sunni, hasbarat

Irebukeu

So there are thousands of people, Sunnis, trapped in Rebel held areas just waiting for rescue? Waiting for the government of their birth to be restored?

Robert Duran

“Syria would be Overrun by Sunnis”

Syria is overrun by Sunnis…Can you please try to differentiate between ordinary Sunnis and Wahabbi headchoppers?

FlorianGeyer

60% of the SAA are Sunnis loyal to their country and President Assad .

Are you deliberately trying to be rather silly ?

zman

Yes, peace with Israel would create a 2nd Palestine. Neither Israel nor the US can be trusted to honor any agreement, as their record speak for itself.

Joe

You are talking pure bull .

How the heck can Syria not ending well? In what way? I know you have no answer before you answer this. Assad’s soldiers and allies are too strong for Israel.

Attacking from the air is now a cost event not like before. Before long Israel will not be able to fly over Lebanon too as Iran will help to empower Lebanon . The west talked only , but no action.

It is Israel better seek peace with Assad or face the consequences when Assad has fully secured Syria with the US out too.

if not Iran may be right at the border ever ready to defend Syria and Lebanon to stop all future Israeli misadventure.

Irebukeu

Joe, Israel is flying over Syria and Syria can do nothing to stop it. American troops are flying flags over Syria? what is the response? America wants you to fight it. Israel wants you to fight it. What is the Syrian response to this challenge?

zman

They can do nothing about it? Are you stupid or unable to read? 1 dead F-16, 1 dead Apache, 1 confirmed damaged F-15 and 2 more damaged, but not yet confirmed. Then there are past reports of an Israeli sub lost, possible damage to F-35 (bird attack) multiple shoot-downs of missiles/drones. What kind of idiotic point are you trying to make? That they are out-numbered by terrorists? Who doesn’t know that?..and you think they should give up after being warred on for 7 years by Israqe and friends..to what end? Total subservience and the possibility of ending up like Libya?

Irebukeu

You use a lot of ‘ones’. I will ignore your ad hominen. You think this has been going on for seven years? I’m not sure what to tell you except that you seem to think the Syrian regime has a winning hand. Very well, if its war you think they should seek then I say let them seek it’ Put everything into the fire. Men, women, kids, young and old. not a moment of let up until the entire world is whipped. Teach the children how to reload RPGs as they may be too young to actually use them. Its Syrias war so let them decide how young children should be to hold weapons on battlefields. All of Syria will become a battlefield. Turkey is in Syria. Syria does nothing. USA in in Syria, Syria does nothing. Good luck If they anyone decides on perpetual war like you want, it will all be over quick. The USA hopes the Syrians try to attack them with airplanes so they can destroy every Syrian aircraft. Why does Syria not Bomb the Turks or shoot down the F-16s in air to air combat?

zman

You continue to make retarded comments: “if its war you think they should seek”…when did anyone say they should seek war? They have had it thrust upon them. All of Syria was a battlefield. According to you they are losing. Well, if what they are doing is losing, why is Israel interfering? Why is the US doing everything it can to de-rail Astana? If they are in such bad shape, why have they regained the vast majority of Syria from IS/etc.? I’m sure you’d answer some crap about east of Euphrates. They only reason they have yet to take it is because Assad saw fit to save the people, rather than to save the oil fields. I don’t know where you got your training, but a logical argument is not your cup of tea. Repeating the same manure over and over means you are out of arguments. You stated that Syria can do nothing about transgressions against them and you are wrong, so you come up with your long winded BS pretending to be concerned about the women and children. If you were truly concerned, you would not want Syria to end up like Libya, which is where they would be if they gave up. IS/KSA would be back with a vengeance, Turkey would carve off the entire northern sectors and the US/Kurds would never leave and starve what is left of Syria of revenues. BTW, this HAS been going on for 7 years (2011-now). Also, I did not use an ad hominem, I simply questioned your intelligence or your ability to read, which is justified after reading your tripe. Now, if I wanted to do an ad hominem attack, I would have just called you an lying ignorant-ass fool spewing non-sensical Zionist crap in the face of facts. But, I’ll try not to do that.

Irebukeu

Part of the Syrian Government strength these days is that even the peaceful political opponents of President Assad who have been living in terrorist occupied Syria are pleased to be liberated from the US proxy terror gangs of criminal thugs.

velociraptor

And 12 other strikes, no other IL plane shot. During last 10 years this was 1 plane. Looks as coincidence. Ofcourse you all will masturbate during the next 15 yers, how big was tha sarian AD, becasue every 2 decades shot down one IL plane. disgusting…

Tudor Miron

And what it was for last 6-7 years? Walk in the park? If you think that we don’t realize that Syria was fighting US/Israel/UK irregular armed forces than you’re in a world of illusions. The fact that Israel and US are already taking casualties to their regular armed forces is a good sign for Syria. It simply means that irregulars (Daesh and the rest of the scum) are actually finished.

The US Coalition sponsors of terror never visualised any of this .

Its possibly because they spend too much time literally up each others arses. :)

“They had better seek some kind of peace with Israel” – First big truth

” If the Russians find the risks to their aircraft too great or find some deal on Ukraine what will become of Syria?! – Second big truth.

Putin shit on Assad and Syria for years. Ig yanks would be not too greedy and begin witj Ukraina issue parallelly with Syria, Russia would not help them. Kiev maidan fucked up Putin. Only therefore went in Syria. But now he is looking for how to elude from too expansive war.

This will not end well for Israel. They had better seek some kind of peace with Syria before it is too late to stop the grinding wheel.

‘Peace’ with world jewry- HQ Israel, Britain and the USA- is willingly placing your head beneath the jewish jackboot- not something many ‘sub-Humans’ are willing to do surprise suprise.

But most jews are so thick, and believe the propaganda spewed by their leaders so perfectly, they really think the ‘goyim’ will do this. And the rise of immoral and undeserved jewish power across the globe is the psychological ‘convincer’. Classic ‘master’ thinking in any master slave relationship. “I wouldn’t be ‘master’ unless there was a real property of existence that made that my destiny”.

The ONLY real problem Syria has is that ‘muscular vicar’ Putin will not punch the America bully firmly on the nose and resolve the issues once and for all. So the bully still thinks it has a way to ‘win’. And thus every ‘crack’ is located, examined and exploited.

Today Putin has issued Israel with a few ‘hints’. Problem is, the Deep State has hinted far more strongly- especially with Trump’s slaughter of Russian mercenaries in Syria a few days back- completely unanswered by Putin.

Assad needs better Air Defense System, including MANPAD such VERBA. If Putin afraid defend Syria, at last what he should due is provide S-400, Pantsir-S1 and VERBA man-portable air-defense system to Syria. The SAA Tiger Force would be the best unit to have VERBA man-portable air-defense system

George King

You are not up to date on the rest of the story in the region and alliance/s.

Yemeni Air Defense Force and the Missile Forces [both allied with the Houthis] conducted a joint operation and destroyed a MIM-104 Patriot PAC-3 air defense system of the Saudi-led coalition in the coastal town of Mocha in the southwestern province of Taiz.

The Russian news outlet Sputnik news revealed that the Yemeni Air Defense Force attacked the Saudi Patriot PAC3 system with an unspecified “attack Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)” while the Yemeni Missile Forces targeted the system with an unspecified “ballistic missile”.

Experts believe that the Yemeni Air Defense used a suicide UAV to target the Radar of the Patriot PAC-3 system. A report released by Conflict Armament Research (CAR) group in March 2017 revealed that the Houthis had attempted to attack the radar of a UAE Patriot system deployed in Yemen with a suicide UAV named “Qasef-1”. This UAV is a copy of the Iranian-made “Ababil-2” UAV armed with 30kg warhead.

Seems like Israel should take note before it is swarmed with drones taking out radar sections of the defense systems while thousands of missiles from upgraded scuds and newer surface to surface Iranian designs.

Russia has allowed the Syrian Alliance/s to build up its capabilities so they can stand on their own against all comers. They will.

Overwatch D.VA

there’s no such thing as ‘suicide’ UAV , it is remotely controlled platform like a guided bomb/missile that can be led to enemy target.

George King

Really? OK lets call it a kamikaze drone as it is a one time use expected to be destroyed when it is sent (guided) into the target. What exactly is the point? Did you read the article?

Overwatch D.VA

UAV that have dual purpose already existed. Calling it a suicidal drone is a misnomer as it have no intelligence AI to decide when it need to commit suicide for the mission.

George King

How old are you? Did you read the article? You professional expertise? I will talk very slowly, the article quoted Russian news outlet as “Unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)”. It also quoted “Conflict Armament Research (CAR) group” saying “with a suicide UAV named “Qasef-1”. This UAV is a copy of the Iranian-made “Ababil-2” UAV armed with 30kg warhead.”

You must be an armchair gamer or something. Please restrict your comments to your abilities there is too much happening and escalating in real time for such banter in my opinion.

Overwatch D.VA

the term ‘suicide’ UAV is a misnomer as a remotely controlled vehicle are not capable of suicide..

it is your knowledge that suspect in this issue , because you try to cover up for your ‘mistake’ by making more and more nonsensical off topic post.

if you care not current on UAV/UCAV tech update then please educate yourself on the recent capabilities of operational UAV . so you wont be so gullible to swallow every article that post nonsense in the internet.

zman

He is playing a game called ‘semantics’…otherwise known as word games. He knows exactly what is meant, he is just trying to show that he is ‘educated’, but not exactly bright. Who does not know that suicide drone is not an accurate term? But it is an accepted term and gets across the idea for such a vehicle. He knows it as well as you or I. I try to ignore comments of this nature, as they are a waste of time and effort. You are correct, there are more important issues to discuss.

Tony T.

The Airdefences have been firing like crazy and repelling Israeli attacks….the result – Bibi has gone crying to Putin looking for ‘de-escalation’

Overwatch D.VA

the syrian have the weapons to destroy Israeli airbase from where IAF jets launched their ops against syria , pretty easy too considering the israeli jets been operating in peacetime conditions aka no underground shelter for jets and open ammo/fuel storage..

the israeli been fighting one sided battles and now arrogantly believe it is superior to everyone in the region..

it just like a big grade school bully who scared everyone in his class and think he is the best , until a high school student smack him into reality .. there’s always a bigger fish..

Pave Way IV

1. ISRAEL DESTROYS AN IRANIAN UAV

They’ve destroyed dozens of ‘Iranian’ UAVs the last year or two – the ‘fact’ that they claim to have taken one down yesterday is insignificant. Whether it’s the truth or another lie does not change the ‘fact’ that they had a long-planned mission to destroy air defenses around Damascus and T-4. They could have used any pretext as an excuse – ‘Iranian UAV’ works as good as any.

2. SYRIA/IRAN SHOOT DOWN AN IDF/AF F-16I

Iranians were part of shooting it down? [chuckle] No doubt with a Sarin-filled SAM. No, Syria did all the shooting here, period. Maybe some pointing help by the Russians, but no damn Iranian SAMs. And this should have been #3, because the Israeli aircraft involved were part of a larger pre-planned scheme that likely involved CENTCOM watching earnestly. The Israeli attack on the Iranian UAV control trailer is – once again – a convenient and lame-assed excuse.

Anyone familiar with SEAD knows this entire charade was an operation targeted Syria’s air defense network, not a UAV trailer. Russian ‘help’ with radar feeds isn’t going to help Syria when it has no more SAMs or launchers to fire at Israeli aircraft. They are not going to to be buying any replacements any time soon. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. Israel knows that.

Seriously, I would have to be an idiot to think this was just a few Israeli F-16s making a mad dash for T-4 and Damascus. Israel is more than willing to pay the price of a few aircraft/pilots to further destroy Syria’s remaining air defenses. And they’re far from over. They just have to wait to see how successful their ‘another Iranian provocation’ propaganda plays in the US. I see the US MSM forcibly restraining themselves from over-reporting on this, but have predictably planted the ‘justified retaliation for Iranian UAV’ message. I expect to see many tearful pictures of

3. IDF DESTROYS SYRIAN/IRANIAN AIR DEFENCE SYSTEMS AND C3 POSTS

Which Israeli al Nusra/al Qaeda ground forces failed to do to the degree necessary despite years of efforts. Their paid head-choppers took out the Golan-facing section and outlying air bases/air defense sites, but got their asses handed to them in the mountains overlooking Damascus. It has been Israel’s goal since before the war started to eliminate all Syrian air defense so they can violate Syrian airspace at will in their self-declared war against Shia and Iran.

CENTCOM is also licking their chops at the thought of destroying more critical infrastructure and (further) ruining Syria economically to punishing those God damn disobedient Syrian civilians! Has the Pentagon’s strategy really changed at all since Libya, Iraq and Iran? Psychopaths always stick with what they think worked before.

“…The more we make those God damn Syrian little people suffer, the harder it will be for them to keep supporting Assad. We just need to punish them harder so they understand…”

Ivan Freely

Why wouldn’t Syria purchase more SAMs / launchers? Why would Russia want Damascus to become vulnerable to US/Israeli airstrikes?

Mortal

It’s called dependency, that is the reason. Who would be stupid enough to just go and play the good guy in the field of geopolitics, without asking for returns? Certainly not Russia. I think Russia can establish no fly zone in Syria, it is just not politically feasible. Proven by the S400 that haven’t even been used yet.

Joe

For your info, Russia is in Russia not because they love Assad or Syria. They ate there to save their own economy and country. Syrians had died and their country destroyed because of saving Russia….. the pipeline .

Who do you think Western countries sll want Assad out. He made the biggest mistake.. no pipeline.

Otherwise Syria would be receiving huge royalties and no war.

So go figure…

zman

Because they cannot afford them right now. Their economy is in a shambles. The Syrians are doing their best to get their fields up and producing again to generate income. Russia has provided them with some S300 systems, but they are deployed to very sensitive areas and not used for general defense at this point, as they don’t have any to waste. They do have a fair arsenal, but they are older and in the process of being updated, but they cannot afford to waste even these. Contrary to some comments, Russia does not want Syria endangered, as they have very big stakes in Syria’s survival, as does Iran and Iraq.

Ivan Freely

re: big stakes

All the more reason for Russia to donate weapons to Syria. The cost of these weapons shouldn’t come anywhere near to the cost of losing Syria.

zman

You question was not why didn’t they have them, your question was why wouldn’t they purchase them. You also have to remember that T-90 tanks, ammunition, etc are more important than AD at this point and Russia has been supplying some of them. There are some new T-90s headed to the coming battle, as as is being shown. Russia has upgraded their AD into potent weapons, regardless their design age. They are not anywhere near losing Syria, no matter how many think so. Putin has no intention of losing Syria for the reasons we all know. If Syria should be in real danger from these Israeli raids, I think you will see a policy change…or maybe the Russians will just do what it takes to secure Syria and do as the US does and deny everything. At any rate your concern is understandable. My thought is that Russia knows far more than I as to what is actually going on and is not likely to abandon Syria after everything Russia has invested in Syria, not to mention what that would mean in the long run. What and how they have been doing things seem to be working very well, the Zionist interference not withstanding. I have faith in the Russians to actually do what they say and not do the western thing (throw them under the bus-Kurds) because they have no choice.

wwinsti

Still holding to the idea that Israel destroyed the bigger part of Syrian air defense? They claimed 50% just today.

zman

I agree with your post, with some notation. Point #2…https://www.veteranstoday.com/2018/02/10/intel-drop-israeli-strike-on-syria-utter-failure/ this link also shows Syria’s AD arsenal. Syria does have plans to acquire newer AD systems, but at this point do not have the economy to do that, although they have acquired some S-300s. This is why the Russians and Syrians are rushing to get as many oil and gas rigs up and producing…to be able to start rebuilding and to purchase new weapons.

there are other facts, which you do not have on the list for you the list starts with the point one. For me it starts, using your nomenclature, the list starts with the point -10, Balfour declaration, as the Britons sold territory, which they did not own, to turkotatars, living in Small Russia (vulgo Ukraine) and Poland and Kaspian Sea.

Total nonsense. IDF has been sulking since the much heralded F-16 was downed by a Soviet era SA-2 and another F-15 severely damaged. The pilot of the F-16 is dead now. I would hardly call this a glaring success.

IDF dont destroy anything except the UAV which was flying inside syrian territory. They tried to attack Syrian AD sites but got ambushed by SAM trap , suckered into the SAM attack envelope and then got salvoed by multiple SAM , unable to afterburner out from the kill sack.

FACTS – 1 Actually there is no confirmation that a Iranian UAV was ever shot down. Iran says it wasn’t a UAV commanded by them. So whose was it? Was there even a drone shot down? I have heard reports it was unarmed, used for surveillance and wasn’t even in Israeli airspace! But that’s beside the point. FACT 2 – The point is Israeli lost a jet, got it’s ass kicked by a recently upgraded air defence system, a couple more jets got damaged and that’s all that matters.

FACT 3 – Israel should not be in Syrian airspace in the first place, so whatever happened to the Israel AF is bought upon by their own hands. Syria was doing what any sovereign nation is allowed to do, protect it’s own territory. I’m sure Israel would do the same back to anyone who flies into their airspace. In fact in the past Israel has flown into Lebanese airspace then into Syrian airspace to avoid detection by air defence systems in Syria for as long as possible.

FACT 4 – No Syrian/Iranian air defence systems were destroyed at all from all the reports I read but overall the Israel operations were a COMPLETE FAILURE! Both of them! I read that most of the Israeli jets dumped their bomb loads harmlessly over Southern Syria because the heat from the Syrian air defence was scaring them and they couldn’t use their ECM’s because they failed to counter the Syrian radars. Israeli jets limp home with tails between their legs. FAIL!!!

On another issue, Netenyahu may be resigning tomorrow. Seems the heat from his corruption investigation is coming home to roost and resigning is basically him admitting he is guilty. He deserves everything coming to him, but as we all know people like him don’t serve time in a jail cell. Pity thou cause I bet Bubba would have loved to have Netenyahu bend over and pick up some soap for him in the shower Hahaha!

DESPITE THE LOSS OF AN F-16, ISRAEL HAS THE UPPERHAND IN THE SYRIAN CONFLICT WITH THE BLESSINGS OF RUSSIA: AN STRATEGIC VICTORY INDEED BY DIMINISHING/DOWNGRADING SYRIA’S AIR DEFENCE CAPABILITIES WHILE ELIMINATING IRANIAN COMMAND/CONTROL OUTPOSTS DEPLOYED IN THAT COUNTRY.

Putin tells Israel’s Netanyahu new spiral of violence in Syria should be avoided http://tass.com/politics/989426 On Saturday, the Israeli military said their helicopter downed above the Golan Heights an Iranian UAV, which had entered the Israeli airspace from Syria. In response, Israel conducted air strikes against Iranian facilities in Syria and destroyed the Iranian UAV control center. During the operation, the Syrian air defense launched a few missiles to hit Israel’s F-16. The pilots ejected – one of them was badly injured, while the other received minor wounds. After that, Israel delivered a heavy strike against Syrian air defense and Iranian facilities in Syria, hitting twelve targets in the neighboring country, Israel’s Defense Forces said. In the autumn of 2015, Israel and Russia agreed to exchange data in order to safeguard their militaries against any accidental engagements during operations in Syria. A special coordination center was set up at Israel’s General Staff for the purpose.

Nop my friend and I am sorry to hurt your pro-Israeli pride but today’s events have a far greater impact than the material losses between the two bands. The myth of being untouchable of the air force of the state of Israel, literally went to the drainage humbling him deeply in the eyes of all enemies and fanes in the area, weakening his figure as a untouchable local military power, emboldening Iran and Hezbollah in a possible distant or near future confrontation stage . In other words, the manhood of Israel was severely outraged today by Syria and irrevocably staining their national pride from now on. Just simple like that, my friend.

Simply screaming it doesn’t make your point any better or more convincing.

Syrian air defences did not appear to be degraded.

The second of attack were faced with Syrian Air defences and hit nothing.

The defensive SAM systems are most likely from the Iranians rather than from the Russians who will not do anything to stop Israel as they have a pact .

So for the FIRST TIME you see Iranian missile defence system working and it is effective . Better than the old Russian S200 . Russian S400s are ONLY for defence of Russia Assets …not for Syria

Terence Silvestre Jr.

Nop my friend and I am sorry if I get to hurt your pro-Israeli pride too, like maybe I deed with another one before you. But in the second waves of Israel atack retaliation again Siria, 13 Israeli missiles out of 15 missiles was intercepted and destroyed before hitting targets on the ground. ( http://en.farsnews.com/newstext.aspx?nn=13961121001451 ) and in the last third waves atacks, 70 percent of missiles was intercepted and destroyed too. ( http://en.farsnews.com/newstext.aspx?nn=13961121001410 ) And faced with such a response from Syria, Israel had no more choice but to call on Washington and Moscow to meddle and take control over the situation. Faced with his impotence to not be able to do more against Syria, with its big ally Russian military presence there, so shame is the current and real situation of Israel in the hour that I am commenting right now, my friend.

Joe

That proved my point that the missiles came from the Iranians and not the Russians who protect only their own bases.

Fact that Iran stated with such confidence means they already have huge stock .

This then can be a warning to the Americans in Syria to leave or be forced out

Terence Silvestre Jr.

I find the hypothesis in your comment very good and solid. The rapid improvement of Syria’s anti-aircraft system is somewhat suspect, taking into account the always passive role of the Russians as you comment in your comment, the only explanation remains on the Irani side, who, could well use the pretext of the ongoing Israeli aggression in Syria to prove their own anti-aircraft hardware with Israel and with some success doing it. I congratulate you my friend for the logical and objective of your last comment.

Israel told one month that they have been destroyed S-200 air defense system….and S-200 have shot down Israeli F-16!…Thats why Jews have a long nose…

wow what r u smoking dude?

“Russian pilots, we are told, are begging to burn Israel. Russian planes in the sector outperform the F15 and F16 by some margin and hatred for Israel runs high in Russia’s military after years of seeing Israel work closely with ISIS”.

It has been a very succesful test for both parties….. the Russians found out that their Missile Systems are operating accurate and with high performance…… The AngloZioNazis on the other hand found out that the Russian Missile Systems are operating accurate and with Devastating Performance……..how many planes do Zionazis have?

Wrong. Israeli’s use the F16I two seaters for attack. The grey parts can be the nose cone and external fuel tanks.

Jewish terror ESCALATING at an explonential rate. Each lost jewish weapon of mass destruction is IMMEDIATELY replaced with ten more by Israel’s allies in Russia, France, Germany, USA, UK and Canada- paid for by the ‘sub-Human’ non-jewish taxpayers of those nations. And yes even Russia gifts Israel billions of dollars of FREE military toys each year.

Yet everyone here wants to ignore these facts, and take minor pin pricks against Israel as ‘proof’ of something greater. Just like the suckers did denigrating Hitler and the nazis in the run up to WW2, by HIGH-LIGHTING nazi ‘failures’.

Yes, of course Israel alone is a very nasty nothing. But Israel is Russia and Israel is the West. An unthinkable vile evil entity backed up by two Empire powers.

Does Putin want Israel to go buck wild in Lebanon, and murder one million+ there as the jews have recently promised to do? Of course not- but what does Putin do to stop jewish terror? Hints. Begging on his knees. The promise that if only the jews will cut him a break, he’ll give them even more stuff.

Helping shoot down jewish terrorist jets is a bit stronger of a hint- and the jews being the world’s most depraved cowards we may see why Putin thinks the hint will work. But this thinking is FLAWED as it does not take into account the influence of the Deep State on world jewry- jews thinking they are on the verge- nazi like- of gaining all their depraved wishes via the massive use of military power.

Serious

WW2 was a plan against the Germans because the Germans will have never became slaves by their own unless the rest of Europe.

alejoeisabel

That F-16, 15 that was shot down by Syria’s defenses has cost US taxpayers $50,000,000. This is food that is taken out of hungry American children, so Israel can destroy its neighbors. Hungry children go to bed so that Israel can have its expensive killing toys.

The billions that we give them as annul tribute could pay for the national healthcare the people need. Chopping the Pentagram could rebuild the entire national infrastructure.

FlorianGeyer

The usual sceptics here of Russian strategy in Syria all bemoan that President Putin has not used his S400’s to destroy Israeli aircraft. There is reasonable explanation for this I think.

If Russia were to destroy Israeli aircraft it would open the door for the US and Israel to directly and overtly attack Russian bases in Syria. That would of course detract greatly the Russian ability to combat the US/Israeli terrorists in Syria who are now losing territory.

In my opinion , this is what the US/Israel are attempting to do and the counter to that is the modernisation of Syrian defences by Russia and a calculated increase in Syrian air defence abilities .

Serious

The modernisation of syrian defense by Russia ?? XD. Keep dreaming. Russia is with israel. israel tries to destroy Syria-Iran alliance because as I said so many times, the only ally of Syria is Iran.

Nice queastion. In psychology, in criminology it is basic question: how can you predict the future activities of somebody? So, that you know his past activities.

FlorianGeyer

How do you explain then the recent integration of the Syrian radars with the Russian network and you also forget that in the air defence sphere the old Soviet era missiles have been upgraded and the successful defence against Israeli missiles and of course today’s destruction , with pilot, of an F16 are testament to Russian modernisation .

Reports are also circulating that 3 more Israeli jets were damaged. :)

Serious

It’s a failure of modernizing syrian army in the past to please israel. Now, the situation is critic and russian bases are in danger so Putin has to do something. But, it’s nothing. After the destruction of one israeli planes,; israel made others airstrikes and destroyed military facilities.

So, maybe for you it’s a victory to down one israeli aircraft and let 10 others destroying syrian facilities. But not for me. Don’t expect Russia to mordernize syrian defense. I better bet on Iran to do so.

…failure to modernize SAA was Assad’s decision not Putin’s fault. And Assad simply understood Syria can’t pursue an arms race with Israel that got 4-10 bn USD for free every year for last 50 years – nobody can…

https://www.globalfirepower.com/country-military-strength-detail.asp?country_id=egypt

Hrky75

Nope. You just proved my point of you being a kindergarten general. Comparing number of tanks and planes to see what country would win a possible 21th century war is – childish. One example. With all of it’s modern planes Egypt needs IAF to air-support it’s anti ISIL campaign in Sinai – 50+ sorties already. And you would have them fight Israel. In addition, is there a site that compares countries and their willingness to fight. If it existed I think Egypt would be somewhere in the bottom half. Modern warfare also requires stable economy and a lot of cash and Egypt is totally dependent on Saudi handouts.

RichardD

You’re a complete idiot:

“is there a site that compares countries and their willingness to fight. If it existed I think Egypt would be somewhere in the bottom half. ”

Egypt fought Israel in 48, 56, 67 and 73. And the Jews had nukes.

Hrky75

…and the last time they fought was 45 years ago – that’s 2 generations of soldiers ago…Yeah that proves they are itching for a fight…Pls keep embarrassing your self …

RichardD

You’re the one embarrassing yourself, they’re currently at war over the Gulf of Aden and are also involved in military actions in Sinai and Libya.

Hrky75

…hey dimwit you were listing Egyptian wars with last being *73, not me…and the truth is that last real wars they really fought was 1977 with Libya and Golf War No. 1 – against their Arab cousin… …and when you say they are involved in “military actions” you mean they are paid by Saudis to act as mercenaries in Zio-Neocon-Wahhabi massacre of Yemen and they are mostly losing their skirmishes against Al Qaida and ISIL, so much so that fucking Israel has to help them fight. And you would have them fight against those same Zio-Neocon-Wahhabi interests because you kinda really, really really wish they did. What are you – 9? Do you parents know you are on line without supervision…

RichardD

You’re talking out of both sides of your mouth. Are you suffering from schizophrenia? First the Egyptians are cowards, and then they’ve been involved in multiple wars to the present day.

Hrky75

…they are involved in police actions together with their close allies – the same people that they should be fighting against according to you – and losing miserably…in essence in order for Egypt to start fighting all the people you want them to fight – they would have start with themselves…

RichardD

You’re a liar, I never said any of these things:

“the same people that they should be fighting against according to you – and losing miserably…in essence in order for Egypt to start fighting all the people you want them to fight – they would have start with themselves”

Your posts are becoming increasingly irrational and detached from reality. You’re a head case. Your contention that the Egyptians are cowards and weaklings is absurd. They are one of the planet’s leading military and diplomatic powers. Who have shown great bravery and skill in the face of adversity.

Hrky75

By “securing” Mandeb you mean enforcing naval blockade of Yemen. Pls remind us whose idea was to attack Yemen and submit it’s people to starvation and cholera because some of them practice “wrong” version of Islam…You’re beyond desperate now – it’s easy to scroll down and see what were your comments that i disagree with. You claim that there’s a realistic chance that Egypt might: A) fight Israel and B) win the war. I claim that A) they are close allies with Israel and Saudis and that the chance of them fighting is zero and B) that numbers of tanks and planes notwithstanding, Egypt is in dept, dependent on Saudi cash and oil. Other point of contention is quality of Egyptian army -I claim that it’s hardware is mostly US made and done so with a reason – so they depend heavily on US spare parts, upgrade kits, training and replacements. In a ’73 (and any future large scale scenario) engagement with 100s of tanks and planes being damaged on both sides Israel was saved by US airlifting ammo, replacement equipment and spare parts – to claim that in a future conflict US would do that to both Israel and Egypt is a whole different level of stupid…

RichardD

I’m not going to waste my time trying to conduct a rational fact based debate with a proven liar, fool and idiot with an impaired grasp of reality talking out of both sides of his mouth who thinks that the Egyptians are cowards and Russia isn’t a military super power. If you want to have that type of cloud cuckoo land debate. Find another delusional arm chair general like yourself who doesn’t want or is unable to deal with real politics and real weapons.

Modernising an Army is never a fast fix and takes years even in peacetime. Training advanced highly technical skills also requires well educated soldiers . This also takes time.

Russia has done tremendous work with the SAA and the results today are way in excess of the early days of the war.

Iran is also learning a lot and theirs is as big a transition as Syria’s has been. Russia began to modernise around 2005 I think, funnily enough with programmes installed in Russia by a large German corporation.
