Breaking: Air Defense Forces Intercept Unidentified Objects Over Southern Syria (Video)

Illustrative image

The Syrian Arab Air Defense Forces (SyAADF) intercepted several unidentified aerial objects over the southern part of the country in the late hours of May 18.

“Unidentified objects entered the airspace of the southern region from the occupied areas, air-defense systems are intercepting them,” a short press release by the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) said.

No explosions were reported on the ground. This allowed experts to speculate that the aerial objects were decoy missiles or balloons launched by Israel.

A day earlier, Syrian air-defense systems shoot down similar unidentified aerial objects south of the country’s capital, Damascus.

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) is known for its extensive use of aerial decoys. Israel’s IMI Systems developed many decoy missiles over the years, such as the ADM-141A\B TALD and the ADM-141C ITALD, which are equipped with passive and active radar enhancers. TALD has a range of 126km, while the ITALD’s range is over 300km.

Israel may have launched decoys to provoke the SyAADF in order to collect information or even to use the Syrian air-defense fire as an excuse for a new aerial attack on the country.

    About time Assad launched a few “decoys” of his own to use up some of the massive stock of missiles supplied to Israel.

    • Carlos Correia

      cold war style. one today. another tomorrow,

    • Jens Holm

      Its a possibility if Assads has enough decoys or easy can replace them.

  • Prince Teutonic

    Looking for a gap in Syrian AD…

    • goingbrokes

      Well, many of the AD units are now mobile, so permanent gaps don’t exist in the same way as before.

      • Jens Holm

        No offence. They still can see the chance in % for comming through as well as respond time.

    • Jacob “Wraith” Wohl

      Yes, but also they used this opportunity to locate Syrian AAA gun and BUK positions around Damascus. The other day an IDF jet was locked on by an S-300 over Lebanon. Perfect, because ELINT craft operating nearby located the S-300 radar emitter. IDF preparing to destroy Syrian Army air defense and humiliate them once more :-)

      • Attrition47

        I doubt that the Syrians don’t know how to spoof the spoofers.

      • Aussiebob

        You are a fukin moron! Israel hides in Lebanese airspace behind civilian aircraft! Nothing to be bragging about moron

    • Rob

      In these dummy missiles if Israel use a real missile then that could make a real damage to Syria.

      So much damage America and their asses like Netanyahu has done to many countries including Palestine and Syria and still there is no shout from any government in the world. So much they scare from America and Israel. United they can stand and divided they will fall very easily.

  • SFC Steven M Barry USA RET

    Most likely attempting to provoke S300 “light ups” to collect ELINT on the upgrades.

    • John Whitehot

      flies trapped in lightbulbs are gonna ding.

    • Rhodium 10

      No because have been shot down between Qnueitra and Damascus with AAA of the Pantsir system after spotted them with the termal camera…so just training for the crew…yesterday pro Jews bots told that israel attacked IRGC Al Kiswa base…but it was a fake information!.SAD launched a Buk missile to warn IAF jets that was flying south of lebanon out of range of Buk (40-50 km)…

      • Real Anti-Racist Action

        They are suppose to be shot down. The collect all ELINT on the air defense no matter what the end result of the missiles are.
        “What you said is like saying that some spy who spy’s on an enemy nation for 10 years, then is captured and killed gathered no information.
        Everything up till the point of death that information gatherer is sending Intel data.
        Those missiles were never suppose to return to Israel or hit anything.
        Their purpose was to fly a specific approach, detect which frequencies, calls, respond times and electronic signals were being transmitted back to Israel.

        • Selbstdenker

          As long as these objects don’t show a somewhat human steering behavior, all tracking is done using passive tracking capabilities. There is no SIGINT to recover from the drones as long as there is no active tracking. If the engagement happened through Pantsir system, the only SIGINT would be the Pantsirs data, but no info about any AD capabilities on the path until engagement.

        • Rhodium 10

          they dont need these missile to collect ELINT..just aircraft flying over lebanon do it!..I am sure that they tried to attack Al Kiswa Irani base with small aerial bombs or small guide missile ..and all of them were shot down…

    • Jacob “Wraith” Wohl

      Collecting ELINT/SIGINT to locate and record locations for S-300, BUK, and AAA gun positions. Also intercepting and analyzing their radar frequencies/wavelengths which will make ECM more effective

  • klove and light

    take your fucking phone bashar…call bibi…with following message

    ” next attack by IDF, we will launch Missiles at bengurion intl. Airport….not for 1 day, but for 1 week, until intl. Airlines cant /wont land anymore and Airport is closed down…. any further attack we will strike your electricity infrastructure and your water Treatment plants, and further attack we will strike your offshore Drilling platforms”

    this is the ONLY language Evil satanic zio/jews understand…..take a look at hezbollah….thats their message and not 1 attack on any lebanese Targets!

    ps. bashar, sir , Maybe nobody told u, so i will

    “syria is under attack and at war”

    for my brave houthi Brothers

    “God is the Greatest, Death to America, Death to Israel, Curse on the Jews, Victory to Islam”
    ( i aint Moslem but they are the bravest of the brave)

    • Carlos Correia

      the “main” action should not be that. but mimic the enemys actions, we must understand that zionism is an idea. not a religion or other creed, ideas are bullet prove. so to defeat the idea always use defense over offence actions. only after the enemy fully attacks you can use counter-attack. Syria must remain strong, soon the world economy will collapse, the fiat money for them will not be much but simple paper. to us all.

      • Jens Holm

        As long as Assads and very much Islam are not reformed, that never will happen.

        I see no indications for the world economy is collapsing. China partly are added to it as extra.

        • Aussiebob

          You said the dumbest shit

    • Jens Holm

      Thats not the real world. Some might make a vidiogame like this.

      • Aussiebob

        You watch to many Hollywood movies !

  • jorge

    Yeah, you are going all to conquer the hell, ó filhos da puta!

  • Rob

    America and Israel both are main terrorist states. They are main issue for the whole world not just for Syria. Recently they have hijacked the North Korean cargo ship. Which is a recent provocation.

    • Jens Holm

      You are on that North Koreanb cargo ship ?

      • PZIVJ

        Maybe the stolen ship can be used to transport coal to Denmark.
        No wait, you have a lot of wind there, including your hot air which may produce a milliwatt of power. Doubt that Rob was a crew member, although the ship probably has an uplink for posting on SF. :)

        • Jens Holm

          We try to use less coal,so Robs have no reasons to come here :)

          Its also true we produce a lot of hot air :) But we recycle more and more of it and make it into usefull warming and cooling.

          SF has no downlinks :)

          • Aussiebob

            Shut up idiot

          • Jens Holm

            I wil shut up idiiots as Rob as long as I live.

            USA and Israel for sure cant learn good manners from Robber dog.

  • AJ

    More US junk shot down!

    • Jens Holm

      A lor is done all over the world for good reasons. If You send up for 10.000 and the enemise spend 11.000 its often good business.

      If the enemy by that are in highest alert for many days its expensive.

      It make no sense just to write “just junk”. I hardly see any “justs” from Israel.

    • Jacob “Wraith” Wohl

      don’t get too excited… Israel used this opportunity to locate Syrian air defense systems like pantsir, BUK, S-300, and AAA guns. Now they know where they are :-)

      • Lena Jones

        Another idiot reply! As if equipment can’t be stealthily moved lol! Hezbollah has a GIANT arsenal of precision missiles and you and your jewy terrorist military haven’t a CLUE where it is lol.

      • Aussiebob

        Bla bla bla. Pissoff Zionist

      • emery

        did you know they were mobile? …This means the know only where they were at the time.
        Daaa….

        • Jacob “Wraith” Wohl

          IDF missiles have a memory function to recall the last location where enemy SAM’s were present, sorry can’t defeat them :-)

  • Eskandar Black

    Likely an intelligence collection operation. Around the same time as the missiles a P8 was flying of the Syrian coast.

    • Jacob “Wraith” Wohl

      US and Israel locating all Syrian air defense systems/radars and sharing information. Goal is to eventually destroy the entirety of SyAAD in the event of war. They’re also using ELINT to intercept radar waves and study them to make more effective ECM

      • Lena Jones

        A single missile hit on the Dimona and NONE of your terrorist calculations will matter.

        • Jacob “Wraith” Wohl

          Great give IDF an excuse to use tactical nukes against Syria and hezbollah :-)

          • Lena Jones

            Your so-called tactical ILLEGAL nukes will most definitely rain fallout toxins on jews in israel, especially if targeted at Lebanon: close geographical proximity (a hop away!) and RANDOM wind shifts to consider here. You can’t even lob them at Iran without some windshift risk involved. “Oy vey let’s nuke our neighbors”, say the ever-suicidal jews with their never ending stream of ‘bright ideas’ lol. You constantly lead yourselves out of one oven and into another. Fact is, that israel is in an existential geopolitical crisis and its nukes can’t do shit to stop the ongoing advance of the Axis of Resistance, hugging at its chest so closely now.

      • Aussiebob

        Both terrorists states! Like your little brain you Zionist troll

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    They are probing. They are trying to gather as much info as possible for their coming ‘attempt’ to wipe away Syria’s air defenses.
    Fail or succeed I cannot say. But Israel is so single minded and Jew’s so set in their ways that they cannot let this go. They are going to make the attempt at some point for a mass attack anyway.
    Unless Syria gets the S-400 system, then I do not believe that Israel will even attempt to wipe away the Syrian air defense at that point.

    • Carlos Correia

      but im not surprised for this actions, i bet they are expecting the Americans to start a war, more people sons dead, and that is a fucking fail. fooled by so few. history is in a fucking loop or what??? operator?,,,,,,,,

      • Jens Holm

        If You learned more about the world, which includes Israel, You would be less surprices.

        You get more surprices, when You know as little as possible about us and insist.

        You cant even copy our good parts.

        And if You insist history can be loops. They are not if You learn the first time such as 1948, 1956, 1967 and 1973.

        Russia didnt learn as will and still insist. Even they lost WW1 3 times they too all the way to Berlin and DDR after WW2.

        Thats was made by cintralisted made scintists in politics as well as only reading tha bade economic parts of Engells. It wasnt better then the collapsed Zar economies and was out after 70 years.

        But for WW2 it was mainly the French, which made the bad loop decimating Germans and Austria-Hungarians to nothing.

        So the solutions are to take the good loops and avoid the bad ones. Good loops fx has beeen regaining irrigation by water in Egypt, Syria, Iraq, India and China. But those loops has to be changed now, because the evaporation makes more and mpre salty fields as well as others take too much water from the rivers.

        EU mainly is a good one because people has votes for it. Even not effective and perfect its much better then the forced ones before them based on Empires.

      It depends in, how stupid You are :).

      • Kastaibes

        Consider ISIS keep sending apologies to israel when they accidently attack them. Why its stupid for him to says that? There is reason isis is called israeli secret intelligent service

      • Aussiebob

        Depends on? Not in 🤦‍♂️ If your going to pay someone out at least get it right idiot

  • Xoli Xoli

    Give warning to civilians in Idlib and Altanf to leave immediately with in 24 hours.Before Russian bombs rain down.

  • Domenic Patrone

    Israel is observing your reactions to the objects and will build on any knowledge gained. They know you can find something small at this time. They’ll try different approaches as the weather permits.

  • Jacob “Wraith” Wohl

    SAA fell for the oldest trick in the book! IDF used balloons to get locked on by Syrian Army radars.
    Took an entire AAA gun division to bring them down lol pathetic.
    Israeli AF operating ELINT/SIGNIT aircrafts collected all the locations of Syrian Army radar emitters.
    Almost all AAA BUK and S-300 positions in Damascus are recorded and logged by the IDF. Now that their locations and radar frequencies are know, they can be destroyed or jammed effectively. Can’t beat the vastly superior Israeli AF :-)

    • Lena Jones

      You’ve been banned from twitter and facebook – for spreading fake news, no less. So you think you got any credibility here, mister antigentile israel-firster motherfucker?

      • Jacob “Wraith” Wohl

        harsh words there :-)

        • Lena Jones

          I haven’t even started to expose your terrorist cunting ass…

          • Jacob “Wraith” Wohl

            ok then, go on. I’ve heard lots of antisemites so hearing more wont be anything new to me

          • Lena Jones

            You’ll need to prove that you’re a freaking REAL semite first, motherfucker!

            And from looking at yer ugly mug, I’d say you’re the result of a freakish laboratory experiment.

          • Aussiebob

            No such thing as anti-semites! Anti Zionist, YES!!

    • Lena Jones

      Your “superior israeli af” couldn’t beat Hezbollah. FACT! In fact, your terrorist jewy airforce, navy and land forces COMBINED and equipped with the latest blah blah couldn’t beat Hezbollah lol!

      • Jacob “Wraith” Wohl

        Not a fact. Israel withdrew from Lebanon under UN pressure, they were winning and advancing towards Beirut at a slow but steady pace! IDF lost less than 10 tanks and less than 100 soldiers, while Hezbollah lost 500-1000 fighters in only a month
        It would have been an outright complete Israeli victory just like every other Arab-Israeli war in the past

        • Lena Jones

          124 DEAD MERKAVAS in Lebanon lol! I’m not even gonna bother correcting the rest of your stupid lies cuz evidently jews, including your fake jew ass, cannot help but always, always, always fiddle with numbers. Fucking historic cheaters!

        • Aussiebob

          Shut up moron! Hezbollah kicked Israel’s ass in 2006! You to stupid to understand that tho

      • Jacob “Wraith” Wohl

        believe what you want… history books said IDF withdrew due to UN pressure… not because of being defeated. lol an army of hyenas can defeat an Arab army :-)

        • Lena Jones

          Brainwashed so deep by manufactured ‘jewish’ history that ONLY terrorist antigentil supremicist jew-cogs like you believe. jews BEGGED for a ceasefire lol! jew boys filmed crying like little girls with literally piss stains on pants as they were forced to retreat from the Lebanese borders lol! jewy navy got blasted LIVE ON TV lol! Air force hit NOTHING BUT EMPTY DECOYS AND CIVILIAN TARGETS CUZ IT HAD NO INTELLIGENCE ON HEZB LOCATIONS lol! jewy military CRUSHED by little Hezbollah lol! REAL HISTORY tells us this, with video verification lol! Just admit you’re a lying cunt and MAYBE we can be friends in the next lifetime.

      HoW u know S-300 is near Damascus? Can u send link please?

  • Jacob “Wraith” Wohl

    Israel ELINT crafts located many Syrian BUK AAA guns and S-300s all across Syria recently. They also intercepted their radar wavelengths to better develop more effective ECM/electronic warfare against the Syrian Air Defense… IDF will humiliate them again with no problem :-) just like in 2007 but even worse this time lol

    • Patrik Dančo

      WuT? S-300 is already ready for action?

    Jews are masters at creating tares, they did it in Europe over the centuries and their banks have always earned. Israel, which is a regional nuclear power and has to command from the Nile to the Euphrates for the Zionist Bible, which commands on the Saudi Wahhabi Jewish dynasty has destabilized Syria with ISIS, but in Iran it has no chance, that’s why seeks to bring the US,another ruling nation, directly into the war. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f4e8ed3ad9a86cc474c8697bdba23ed7999b998402461c061a0dbf857dd1cdc4.jpg

  • John Whitehot

    they could they be drones, made to mimic airplanes and helicopters so to make the syrian s300 react and gather intelligence about it.

    if that’s the case, it seems that extraordinary intelligences failed again.
