Israel Hits Three Positions Of Syrian Army In Hama and Aleppo (Video)

Donate

On April 29, an unnamed source of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) told the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) that several military positions of the SAA in Hama and Aleppo governorates were targeted. However, the source didn’t identify the side responsible for attacks.

Syrian pro-government sources said that the military positions that were targeted are the 47th Brigade ammo depot east of the city of Hama, the Fire Fighters Center in the western Hama countryside and a military position around Aleppo Airport.

All three positions are known to be bases of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and different Iranian-backed armed groups. According to Syrian opposition sources, several Iranian serivcemembers were killed in the strikes.

All of the available facts suggest that Israel was behind these strikes. The Israeli Air Force used a similar tactic to target a position of the IRGC in Syria’s T4 airbase on April 9. Since then, serval Israel officials have threatened that they will continue to attack the Iranian bases in Syria.

    President Putin.
    This is one illegal attack too far.
    Syria and Iran are your allies.
    Your reputation is now at stake.
    S300, S400 – whatever it takes.
    Give Syria and the Iranians the lot.
    Or explain why not – as you watch your allies being mass murdered and you refuse to protect them as they deserve.

    • The Latin Mass

      Chabad Putin would never hurt Israhell. That is why the S-300s will always been considered, never given to Assad.

            “the globe and mail” also have an article. Google that and “Yuri Tkachenko” Reporting that in fact, Yuri Tkachenko does exist, and he did test the bomb for explosives and they tested positive. Wonder if SF will delete this because I am providing too much evidence.

            Putin has all these Muslims supposedly in the old cold war Russian sphere of influence. So Putin will seem buddy-buddy with them so long as they don’t get too uppity.

            Russia sanctions Iran in the UN, sanctions North Korea. China abandons NK. Why? Because jewamerica calls and threatens and blackmails and terrorizes. And Putin is good friends with the Chabad, so it does not take much arm twisting.

            Iranians should look to themselves and develop their own weapons and be better than the Russians. And take whatever the Russians sell and try to copy and make improvements.

          • The Latin Mass

            boy would I like to be gifted $ by jewish goblins while exposing to Muslims not to trust Putin, telling Muslims to take all the help from the zionist troll Putin, but to never rely on Putin.

            100,000 shekels would be nice…

            I could get out of the jewish hellhole of jewamerica.

            The Hasbara trolls don’t want my comments on jewtube exposing Putin’s role as an agent of the jew.

            I posted this on jewtube and it got deleted and auto-deleted upon each time I tried to repost it, I had to post it in Farsi to get by the auto-delete:

            On the Iran Nuke Deal.

            It’s not the end of NATO (as a Press TV Guest said it was), but all zionists are lining up with Hell Aviv
            to try to muzzle the Muslims from defending the Palestinians. Will Putin
            defend Iran’s right to have defensive missiles from the zionists. Putin
            is the point guy for the zionists on the relations with the free
            Muslims. If Putin will not defend Iran’s missile program, another
            betrayal by Putin.

            This is serious, but expected. “I meme for Le Pen” would have fallen in
            line with Trumpstein and fallen in line with her jewish boyfriend.
            Zionists will eventually find their way to hell. With Trumpstein’s
            Jerusalem move and the goal to blow up the Dome of the Rock.

        • Peter

          @borna francetic; In WWII, was it Russian ‘weakness’ that won the Battle of Stalingrad, turning the tide of the entire war against Germany? Was it Russian ‘weakness’ that alone crushed 80% of the entire NAZI war machine during the war? The word ‘weak’ certainly doesn’t describe the 27,000,000 Russian citizens who gave their lives fighting the German military.
          Russia has stated it is in Syria by request in defense of Syrians’ rights to determine their own future and not have that future determined for them by a coalition of greedy, self-serving, Western, expansionists. Russia understands the risks it takes on here and will act with prudence in achieving it’s stated goals.

    • Daniel Castro

      The hasbarat net brigade came on droves for one more propaganda operation.

      They pretend they do not know these types of attacks are made with zios shooting missiles across the border in Lebanon, even with s-300 would be hard to stop such sneaky attacks, the only way to deal with this would be counterattacking Israel which would escalate the war. right now the priority is to clean all the pockets from the zio rats, then next come kurd traitors, and only then it will be time for Israel.

      It is a good thing zio trolls all show themselves with such posts though,,,

      • The Latin Mass

        A S-200 hit a F-35. S-300s if they are fully operational and Putin has not put a kill switch on it, should shoot down any air attack.

        • Daniel Castro

          If s-200 hit a f35 it would easily hit such missiles, the fat is it is very hard to counter an unexpected sneaky attack.

          • velociraptor

            Bro, you are joking. But i saw such thing isn the soviet army. With russians in uniform you never can be sure. :) for such thing kicked lot of officers out shoygu, when he made surprize visits in garrisons. :)

          • The Latin Mass

            I was continuing on the jew claw comes with the “sneaky attack” and disarmed it. No I do not believe the jew has some secret way to attack Syrian bases that bypasses all air defenses.

            Russia is developing it. Iran should independently develop hyper-sonic missiles and the jews would cry and rage even more. The jew wants war. Send the war to Russia who would destroy the jews in a day. And if jewamerica wants to get nuked out of existence…

          • Daniel Castro

            There is no secret, if you shoot a cruise missile flying on low altitude around the detection zone of radars it will be too late for the defenders of the actual target when they detect the missile.

            Zionists can use this tactics only in small scale though, if they try a big attack like this they will certainly draw too much attention.

          • Thomas Wolsey

            Iran will use barrage of missiles instead of hyper-sonic missiles.
            Barrage is more cheap and do work.

      • King_GeorgXIII

        They only way to stop this is to take back the golan Heights and put your best radar on that mountain! Israel hides behind natural cover! Thats why they need the golan heights to attack syria! Take it back by force and it ends!

        • Daniel Castro

          Yes, but as I said there are other priorities.

          They will keep doing these sneaky attacks, but they too can’t increase the intensity or they risk escalating the scenario themselves and forcing russians to act.

          It will be like this until all the pockets are cleansed at least, then a choice will be made, if they attack Golan or the Kurds, and I think kurds come 1st because if SAA go after Israel before dealing with the kurdish rats they risk getting flanked by SDF.

          • Luigi

            I think they have already decided to attack the Kurds in Deir-Ezzor first and, later, they will have to decide what to do in Idlib.

        • nshah

          Nope.., the only way to stops all these is to send rains of missiles and razed Haifa, Hellaviv & Dimona to the ground.. It’s as easy as that.. It’s just that most of those in power had no or small balls.. they should cut it & give em to dogs..!

      • Luigi

        I agree. Those low altitude flights can only be effectively detected by AWACS. I’m pretty sure Israel and Russia must have some agreement about that. Besides that, before the activation of the S-300s, Syria wil have to set a multilayered missile defense system to protect them.

    • Rob

      As US needs Israel similarly Russia and China also needs Israel because Israel sharing secret military technology between countries like US, Russia, China etc. Israel steel one country secret and sell it to others to make money. Now to defeat Israel is very easy just it needs the Muslim world unity without Saudis, Bahranis and Qataris etc.

      Uh huh iran has not recognized crimea as part of russia. Some ally.

          RU has been keeping SY on life support just above clinical death. Bashar should kick RU out and try to find the way how to deal with US and EU. It’s not worthy to continue like this. SY doesn’t need enemies with allies like this. It looks like RU and US have been playing good cop bad cop game with Syrian people. Syria has found itself between a rock and a hard place.

          • Free man

            Assad should push Iran out of Syria, not Russia.
            Russia wants to end this terrible war and want to rebuild Syria.
            The mullah regime is interested in continuing the war against the Kurds / Americans in eastern Syria, the Sunnis in northern and southern Syria, and Israel in western Syria.
            The choice is simple. Peace must be chosen not war.

          • 888mladen .

            RU wants to protect its interest which include preservation of the illegal fascist state of Israel which Iran doesn’t want as well as preventing Qatary and Iranian gas reaching EU shores. There will be no peace in ME as long as the state of Israel exist. It’s very simple. Everybody knows that.
            And by the way all the parties involved must make a choice for peace. Don’t you think so? How’s about Zionist entity? What has been their choice so far based on evidence?

          • Free man

            The Russian leadership is practical and realistic. It does not choose which countries should exist and which countries should be destroyed. Israel is an existing fact that Russia has normal relations with.
            The current Iranian leadership is a religious extremist one operating from revolutionary messianic motives. As such, it thinks it can decide who is a legitimate country and who is not. So let it fight its own religious wars, with out the help of the Russians or the Syrians.

            Get Israel back to pre WW2 and you will have Peace in ME. Give Plaestina back to Palestinians, give back Golan, to Syria, Stop to destroy Lebanon avery 10 year..stop shothing at ppl every day in Gaza and Palestina….STOP STOP STOP…

          • Free man

            1. If the Arabs were smarter and less cowardly, Israel would have to reach a just political solution for all sides.
            2. The mullah regime is an extreme religious regime that undermines the stability of the Middle East. There are no good jihadists.

          • Floyd Hazzard

            Yes apologist. Let’s see how many allies they win with their practicality. China must be watching with disgust. Now a lot of countries know for sure they better not buy Russian weaponry and bring themselves against the international order.

          • Free man

            Putin is a master of international politics. As such he knows to bet on winning horses. Iran is a losing horse, the whole international community knows it.

            Same old Cult of Personality again, about the “Great Leader”, only this time no one is buying it.

            No wonder you have almost no allies and people are laughing at you all over the comment sections. People have no confidence in you. Even Belarus does not trust you. Good luck losing whatever allies you had.

            If Russia was truly a friends of Assad, Putin would say any un-authorized missiles or planes flying over the sovereign state of Syria will be shot down by Russian S-400s/S-350s because Russia is invited by the legitimate Syrian government recognized by the UN.

            Does the UN mean anything or is it a play toy for Colin Powell and hillary duff crying about non-existent WMDs.

Then you had that weak jasper milk toast speech he gave before the Russians stood down again in Syria. Then another weak reply after the strike about violation of international law. Since then it has been Mr. Magoo Lavrov doing the appeasing. I suspect we will here again from Magoo after this latest strike. If I was a Russian General, I would be ashamed of myself by now.

          Exactly. RU most likely knew via the phone hot line about details of the attack. If they did what have they done about it. Allegedly IR is RU ally however Israhell is Pusin darling. It’s interesting how many on this discussion forum do not get from articles on RT or Sputnik referring to illegal state of Israhell where RU-ISrahell relation stands.

        • Peter

          @colicky Limey; Show source for your Putin quote. While you’re scrambling around trying to come up with one, here is the actual, VERIFIABLE transcript, (Russia Insider) of his remark; “we warned you..you wouldn’t listen..listen to us now.” Putin never said ‘listen to ME now, (but you already knew that didn’t you?)
          ‘He has been very quiet of late hasn’t he.’ (Your words and your perception.)
          Pres. Putin offers considered comments when deemed necessary. The reason you think you hear silence from him is more because his words are being drowned out by the noise a 24/7 torrent of despicable lies of projection make, emanating from a crumbling West’s collective failed and desperate leadership.

          • Ok, so the correct quote is listen to us now, but that changes nothing. The results are the same. No one is buying what Putin is selling anymore. Once you realize he is just puppet, then all the events that are happening in the world start make a lot more sense. If you wish, we can go back to Putin’s speech in Munich in 2007. He was full of warnings back then to wasn’t he? Has NATO withdrawn from Russia’s borders since then or have they increased their troops presence?

      • Joe

        More likely the Russian System could not detect F35 … So S400 maybe useless . Until now have not proven in battle yet. Talk only

        • Real Anti-Racist Action

          I agree with you. In fact I think the S-300 system is not useful against 5th generation aircraft. Maybe S-400 system is a bit, maybe.
          My hopes truly ride on either the S-500 system.

      The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting (Sun Tzu)

      Let America and its Israeli minion make lots of noise, it won’t effect the outcome, US/Israel are cactus fuctus.

      • Terence Silvestre Jr.

        Speaking of Sun Tzu, I’ve always wondered about how many wars has won this guy with the implementation of its own tips from its famous art of war book?
        Because if being trampled and murdered by the enemy without doing anything about is to obey some tips from the Sun Tzu book of art of war, I think there is something quite wrong with that supposed book, unless the death of the cowards has something of honor and victory in it, of course.

          Hi Terence. I believe this means winning the war with non combat means, this basic principle was used many times in the history. Ho Shi Minh said “It may take three years, it may take five, it may take ten, but that will be the war of Indo-china.” North (NVA) with 250 000 soldiees (plus 1 brigade soviet spetsnaz) faced 575 000 US and 600 000 South (SVA) soldiers during the war, also peasent economy faced heavy high tech industry. Having this in mind winning the war with WW 1 approach was big NO, hence “guerrillas do not aim to win great battles, but rather to drain the forces of the enemy, to cut off their appetite and sleep, to destroy them, to abuse them morally and materially to end up with annihilation”. The very same approach was used by Yugoslav partisans under Tito during V. enemy offensive, where 17 000 partisans under burden of 2 000 wounded fighters faced 127 000 axis soldiers accompanied with 300 airplanes. Partisan movement during 1 month long battle looked like fly movement avoiding a bird.

          In imagination of many he has been a greater strategist than Alexander. I think that has something to do with China being the second largest economy in the world today. Like everything “made in China”

    • Free man

      Don’t be ridiculous. Why Russia should fight for the regime of radical mullahs.
      Russia does not intervene in the conflict between Israel and Iran. Iran threatens to destroy Israel at every opportunity, the Israelis bombard the Iranians at every opportunity and in response the Iranians bark back.
      Assad defeated the terrorists, there is no longer any need for Iran and all its sectarian militias. Therefore, Iran must leave Syria and prevent unnecessary war with Israel on Syrian soil.

      • EmilyEnso

        Who said ‘fight’.
        My comment says give the allies the means to defend themselves.
        You clearly misread it.
        Saying that – forgive me – but it looks to me as though Russia is already fighting in Syria and is allied to Iran…

        Seems you have lost the plot.

        • Free man

          Russia and Iran had a common interest in saving Assad. And they succeeded impressively.
          Now the interests are different. Russia wants to end the war and Iran wants to continue it against the Kurds / Americans in the east, against the Sunnis / Turks in the north and against Israel in the West.
          Only the Syrian people will suffer from the unnecessary continuation of the war and a new war against Israel. Therefore, at present the Russian / Syrian interest is different from the Iranian interest.

          • EmilyEnso

            So Russia wants out.
            The war is won?
            What planet are you on.

          • Free man

            The Sunni jihadist threat has been removed with the help of Iran, Russia and the Western / Arab coalition.
            Russia is realistic and practical and does not want to fight forever. They understand that a war in eastern Syria against the Americans or in northern Syria against Turkey or in the west against Israel would be a disaster for Syria.
            Russia is the only force that can stabilize the situation in Syria. I hope that Iran will not interfere, but apparently my wish is not realistic.

          • EmilyEnso

            Not al all.
            The Americans, French, UK and Israel all support the Sunnis. fund the sunni terrorist, arm them, train. them and import them.
            They also occupy large tracts of Syria.
            The battle is not over yet.

      Russia will only allow so much before they act, but they don’t go for the egotistical public confrontations that the US favors. They prefer strategic thinking and astute, but subtle chess moves that further their broader agenda. Watch for a definite date for the S-300 deliveries to Syria and more investment in upgrading Syria’s air defences. They will also use their considerable political weight to gradually isolate Israel further . .

    • Justin

      Dont let ur emotions cloud ur judgement!
      And dont get upset over what I just wrote to u or u will prove my point!
      Israel will continue to escalate all the way to nuclear weapons! DO U UNDERSTAND?
      They believe they are special because they have convinced the world that they have been forever oppressed! They have the USA in the palm of their hands! The USA send their own citizens to die for wars for Israel without Israel even lifting a finger!

      There is a way to win this war but its not with a “fuck u take that”!
      Its about precise counter movements. U allow ur enemy to escalate! You dont give them the opportunity to go ALL IN!
      You just keep chipping away day by day! (winning)
      U give warnings and more warnings and u slowly up their defences until it makes it harder and harder for Israel to complete their mission until they just go too far! (Invasion)

      U want Israel to pick the fighting have Iraq, Iran, Lebanon and perhaps even Turkey ready to make dire warnings!

      Iran and Russia are on a chess board and they are winning. they are slowly positioning their pieces on the board so that Israel is in a no win situation!

      Israel is so small, it doesn’t take a nuke to wipe it out!

      Dont forget Israel is full of Palestinians!
      You may find Egypt in this war against Israel too!

      Israel is being contained! They are panicked! Why give them an excuse to escalate!
      Sometimes the best reaction is no reaction.Just clear ur map, make it red, wait for former enemies like Qatar to jump on board (they are joined at the hip with Iran due to the shared Gas well.

      You can bet ur balls russia will FLY IN the S-300 systems! Syria only needs about 4!

      Israel wont be able to fly in, they wont be able to launch cruise missiles, they will need Israeli soldiers! These soldiers will be killed or caught! Then what? Israel is screwed! they are going to have an enemy protected by russia breathing down their neck and Israelwill be seen as”the bad guy”!

      Its gonna be Iran dictating terms soon!

      Happy days! They are so desperate! Never interrupt ur enemy when he is making a mistake! I love how Iran and Russia play it cool! It must be scaring the shit out of Israel because Syria just keep re-taking land every day! Iran is literally going to move into Syria! Russia will be in Syria! Jordan is going to be under a lot of pressure and so too KSA from Iraq! KSA sandwiched between Iraq and Yemen!

      this is awesome! If u dislike Israel should be enjoying the show! Their plans have back fired and now they are desperate! Russia is just being nice and allowing Iran to move in! Iran will take the losses, its expected and its not gonna stop the tidal wave of hardware thats coming over the border!

    “Don’t worry everyone, Putin ok’d it. Netanyahu and Putin are old pals.”

  • observerBG

    Many people told you that Russia is becoming a total joke. If Israel can bomb Syrian Gov at will then why not the US too?

    This is becoming a big embarrassment for Russia. So now anyone can bomb the Syrian Gov? Still no S-300 for Syria? Why is Russia there?

    • The Latin Mass

      ISIS was getting out of hand for the zionists. Separately, Assad asked help from Russia to fight ISIS. Obama did not want to fight ISIS, so the rabbis ok’d Putin helping Assad to drag on more Muslim killing, which is what jews like. So long as there is war and more wars for Muslims dying, jews are happy. And Putin knows who’s the boss, and it is not Putin, but Netanyahu.

      There are those who are not zionists in Russia that may be demanding more air defense for Syria, those are the good guys, Putin wanted to move the Russian embassy in Israhell to West Jerusalem, like the bad little zio-nazis Putin is.

      There is a strategy jews use all the time, they are called agents, they try to pretend they are on your side, but are there to give you the false hope that they will defend you. Putin is that false hope.

      If Putin proves a large delivery of S-300s to Syria and sale of S-400s to Iran, I hope I am wrong and Putin is a double agent. The embassy debacle proved Putin’s loyalty. That was before Trumpstein’s decision too.

      • Russia’s only hope is that there is military coup and Putin is lined up and shot. It almost happened when this coward was about to let Crimea go.

        You see the Kosher Nostra cannot control every eventuality. Yes Putin is their puppet, but he is only one man. There are real Russian nationalist in Russia believe it or not, that see exactly what is going on, the way we all see it.

        I think Tel Aviv let Russia intervene in Syria for reason. Just like you said, to kill more Muslims, that’s always a bonus, but also to draw Iran further in. I never thought that once Russia intervened that Syria would continue to be bombed. Those were the days when I believed that Russia and the US actually opposed each other. Now I see that it is all been a charade. If I see it, then a lot of people must beginning to see it too. King Zion Putin is in danger of being exposed.

          But the true is the true, for more than some insist on finding other alternatives to this, to evade an inevitable and harder reality.

        • JamesAPalaiologos

          Also keep in mind how Putin was brought to power — literally the choice of Rothschild’s “oligarchs,” all of whom were Jewish, who brought up the obvious puppet Yeltsin, and all of whom rather suspiciously moved to the City of London and Israel with all their assets after Putin supposedly “cracked down” on them.

          I’m not aware of a single instance where the choice man of the Jews truly became independent after acquiring power, although a leader becoming “independent” is often the narrative.

          There’s also the picture of George Bush and Putin together in high-level mason robes, taken during a time when US-Russian relationships were supposedly poor.

          And finally there are the bottom line results (all the Jews care about) Putin’s domestic policies. The divorce rate is the highest in the world at ~75%, meaning cultural rot spread via media is more rampant than even in the West. Consequently, there’s widespread alcoholism, prostitution, extreme demand for luxuries, etc.–all the ingredients needed for a complaint, weak populace whose life consists of working long hours, paying interest, and staying distracted.

        • Jules Mark

          ‘I think Tel Aviv let Russia intervene in Syria for a reason’

          Yep. The military intervention of Russia was never about countering the US and Israel or their strategic objectives in Syria and the region, it was simply a ploy to raise Putin’s prestige on the global stage with the blessing of the same. Eventually they are planning on attacking Russia so they have to set the stage with Putin the fraud posing as a menace and global villain whom we should all despise and whose ‘influence’ we should counter everywhere with the military might of America/NATO.

          However the clearest sign that Russia’s deployment in Syria is a mere political show or for some kind of global plot from the usual suspects, consider that Russia’s deployment there is completely insufficient in terms of numbers and hardware to counter any of the NATO forces which surround it from all directions in that region. Also consider that the very means of getting there and supplying its forces in Syria are dependent on the NATO alliance which could easily cut off this access if it so desired. The truth is that if Russia wanted to counter NATO influence around the globe and thin out its forces then it should start in its own backyard

          Putin is a complete fraud who is using the Syria campaign for his own and for others goals while completely drawing attention away from the massive geopolitical disaster that Russia suffered in Ukraine. The fact that hardly any one gives the Ukraine debacle the due attention that it deserves (even the western media prefers to ignore this huge defeat) despite it being a massive loss for Russia proves that Putin’s Syrian adventure is a recipe cooked up in foreign capitals to give him a political boost. You can only pity those poor souls who ‘trust’ in Russia or Putin.

    • Feudalism Victory

      The answer to why russia is there is to maintain bases in latakia in the mediterrean bleed jihadis in syria before they got sent to Russia test and display weapons for sale and finally maintain a friendly syrian or post syrian government in latakia be it assad or some one else.

      These goals do not require russia to fight all of syria and friends allies. Grown ups like assad understand this.

      • observerBG

        • JamesAPalaiologos

          The US and its allies have spent over $15T managing Syria and Iraq over the last 30 years. This wasn’t done over a couple hundred billion worth of oil and gas at most–the benefits of which would mostly fall into the hands of foreign stockholders, the remainder of which the gov would only get to tax.

          By the way, the supposedly self-interested US conquerors handed over all the captured oilfields to the Iraqi government, and the benefits of this oil are today being used to fund the Iraqi government. Why would they do this if the US really just wanted to profit from the oil?

          But the oil narrative is moot anyway: Have you seen how the US manages its domestic administration!? At 10% efficiency at best! The idea the US suddenly becomes a self-interested force when in foreign nations is a trick of propaganda–setting up a false assumption that the US gov is this benevolent entity working to maximize the interests of its citizens.

          Your second reason is the real reason why the US is doing all this evil. But the oil is a convenient cover story, even for the well informed.

      • If Air Defense is part of the package, I don’t think there will be may buyers. I don’t think the S300 or the S400 or S500 is worth a damn. All we seen is a lot of propaganda.

        • JPS

          This Zionist escalation, this kike “chimp-out” – becoming a sort of perma-chimpout, is the result of their F-16 getting shot down. The Russians obviously have the expertise and knowledge to build effective weapons. What will happen if the S-300 shoots down 3 or 4 kike planes over Syria? Will it then be necessary to start WWIII for the insane Jews?

  • pao

    When is it that SAA are to have S-300 set up? Does anybody know if the Russians have a kill switch to disable their exported version of the S-300 and S-400? So, for example, if Turkey, SA, or Syria had these systems could Russia disable them to prevent themselves from being targeted. Or could they disable them if they do not want Israel or some other specific country retaliated against? I could see having the safegaurd for their own protection but it seems the reputations of their system would be at risk if they can be manipulate beyond that.

    • Pave Way IV

      Remember my crazy theory that the FUKUS attack might have just been cover for destruction or disabling of the Syrian Air Defense equipment, missiles and the communication network that links all of them (and the Russian systems) together? That damage would have been caused by the EMP version (CHAMP) of some/all of the JASSM-ER cruise missiles launched by the two B-1Bs.

      So far, we know Russia pulled a lot of their equipment as well as Syrian equipment out of Syria’s interior and stored it at Latakia or Tartus prior to the attack.

      About the only good video of the attack in Damascus towards the airport looks more like multiple power line transformers blowing up and a substation arcing over rather than multiple missile strikes disbursed over a wide area. You can see the power go out to that section of the city at that exact moment. Syria said that nothing was hit in Damascus besides the research complex, and that was confined to the complex itself – not over kilometers of any section of Damascus. The video looks more like an EMP attack than missile strikes.

      The research complex should have been covered by many AD layers and multiple SAM sites in, around and hundreds of km from that location. Damascus is supposedly one of the most heavily-defended sites on earth. It wasn’t hit by 109 cruise missiles, but twenty or twenty-five obviously got through judging by all the craters/damage. The Syrian air defense network should have seen these cruise missiles coming in from 100’s of km away and been able to handle most of them between all the layers. Yet no reports back then of dozens or possibly a hundred-plus SAMs being launched from the Damascus area. No reports of SAM launches visible at all the other bases that were supposedly attacked. Was the air defense system mostly fried by the EMP missiles before the Tomahawks arrived?

      Video of Syrian AD sites saying no damage and showing an intact BUK wagon and other missiles and equipment, but it would have looked the same after an EMP attack. The electronics inside would have been fried or useless – the external appearance of the equipment doesn’t change.

      The next Tuesday after the attack, two Syrian AD sites fired at imaginary targets and later blaming a US/Israeli electronic attack. I never heard of a EW system able to produce realistic false targets on AD radar at great distances. And a fully-integrated network hooked in to other sites and Russian long-range radar would show something is off with the local site detections. At least odd enough not to start launching SAMs that nobody else can see. It sounds like these sites are operating in autonomous mode without the network. Is the network down or comms links to it unstable or inoperable? Are the sites radars and equipment damaged enough to operate, but not operate properly?

      Now we have a missile strike supposedly originating from the southeast and traveling over 300 km across Syria and through several AD sites/layers to hit their targets. Yet no detections by Syria? No attempt to destroy the missiles with Syrian SAM launches? Seems plenty damn strange for an AD system that was claimed to have taken out nearly all of the incoming missiles just two weeks ago.

      And where is the Russian EW gear? They had it out in central Syria last month and it apparently worked pretty well. Why wasn’t it used against these missiles? Did it get fried in the attack two weeks ago or are they still sitting at the Russian bases to protect them? EW gear is as susceptible to EMP damage/destruction as other electronics. The energy of the EMP pulse in the CHAMP JASSM-ERs is focused downward and has a limited area of intense local effect. That cruise missile can overfly targets at ten(s) of meters. You don’t need a 500MW behemoth microwave rig to fry something that close underneath you. They claimed the EMP module in the JASSM-ER has a hundred shots. That’s a lot of targets for a 300 km-range cruise missile.

      “But the Russians could see them and did nothing!” Does that mean they could see them with their not-fried long-range search and acquisition radar but couldn’t tell the Syrian AD sites it overflew? I would think they would wait to see if the missiles were a threat to Russian bases and then take them out with their shorter-range systems. Lighting up a very-long-range 40N6 or long-range 48N6 at every potential threat “just in case” would get pretty damn expensive. Russia isn’t able to tap into US taxpayer extortion funds and endless USD. They actually have to pay for their weapons themselves. Besides, that’s not the way to react if you have a functioning AD network with several medium- or shorter-range sites hundreds of km down range – you use their missiles first, by design. Another sign that either the radar network or the downrange sites are not functional.

      I’m sticking with the EMP theory and an apparently degraded or non-functioning Syrian AD network and equipment. If Syria mysteriously isn’t using its SAM sites against future attacks, then they may have been junked in the Apr. 15th attack. At least the ones in the central corridor of Syria up to and including the anti-Lebanon mountain range.

      • The Latin Mass

        An EMP attack would be an attack on the Russian base.

        • Pave Way IV

          JASSM-ER CHAMP missiles use a focused, directed energy EMP. You’re confusing that kind of technology with the regional- or national-area sized EMP generated by a high-altitude, high-yield nuclear explosion. A JASSM-ER CHAMP missile can target individual hangars of an air base without affecting others. The US wouldn’t have used them in Syria to attack the Russian bases or radars. The US and Israel want to take out all the Syrian ones. Those will be enough – Russia isn’t going to move in a few AD divisions to cover all of Syria.

    Everyone is quick to point the finger at Russia for not responding with force to Zionist provocations but they are forgetting that the Syrian government itself and their Iranian and Hezbollah allies could also strike back at the Zionists but choose not to because that’s exactly what the Zionists want. Right now the Syrian government and their allies are winning victory after victory against the Anglo Zionist proxies and the Anglo Zionists are looking for a justification to escalate the conflict before Syria and it’s allies crush the final pockets of resistance south of the Euphrates River.

Russia is trying to change that paradigm but it’s not like Washington and Tel Aviv are just going to sit on the sidelines and let that happen. So Russia is treading cautiously because the Anglo Zionist Empire does have escalation dominance in Syria at this present time and Russia does not want this proxy war becomin WW3 which threatens the whole planet with nuclear holocaust.

    I am tired of all these illegal attacks on sovereign countries. Where will it all end? Every weekend another attack. The Truth is We Are Being Betrayed. When this war goes off it will escalate very quickly. You will wish you had a bomb shelter stocked with supplies!

    S-500 and S-600 will be soon deployed according to Russian media. S-700 will be directly transported to Syrian forces.

    • velociraptor

      S-1000 will be so powerful, that will be enough to draw it on paper and the enemy missiles, planes will fall. :DD

    • Terence Silvestre Jr.

      I do not think so, my friend.
      As Russia has always done in those cases, tomorrow Larov or Putin will protest with great force verbally against Israel or whoever was responsible for the bombing, and depending on the severity of the attack, Russia will proceed to threaten to give Syria more lethal weapons to defend itself, apart from the S300 that still does not arrive and will surely never arrive,
      and in a couple of days after everythings calms down a bit, some influential Russian military representative will be celebrating with his Israeli or american counterpart, about how much and how well they agree to avoid any misunderstandings and incident in Syria.
      While Syria will continue without S300 weapons and much less, without any possible and more lethal weapon to defend themselves from the damned Israeli and American murderers,
      and all that, because of the cowardice and lack of commitment of the greatest allies of Syria.
      What a sad and hard reality, my friend

      • velociraptor

        it was irony from hos side ;)

      • Exactly right Terence. Even the thickest brick can see what is going. Everyone knows any alliance with Russia is worthless. Serbia found that out. If they did nothing to help their so called Slavic brothers, you think they will do anything for Syria. Recall the promises to protect Russians in Ukraine. Ask people in the Donbass what they think of Putin.

        I am telling you if the Germans had just treated the Slavs as human beings like so many Germany ministers were begging them to do, WWII might have ended differently. It really was a battle against World Jewry and Russia was at the heart of it. Oh you can call it Bolshevism or ZIonism or any other ism that you wish. Well communism has come and gone but its the same leadership in Russia. Nothing has changed at all.

        It would not surprise me if Bibi and Putin had talked about sucking the Iranians into Syria so the very events you see happening right now could unfold. If Syria ever gets back on its feet again, they should tell the Russian to get the hell out.

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    All them Russian air defenses, and no Russia defense works.
    Syria only brought down the last batch from the US cause Trump phoned ahead and let Putin know they were going to attack. In true warfare between two sides, you never alert the other side of your attack.
    Russian defenses are shit against an enemy that does not call ahead to inform you he is attacking you.
    And in this all out ongoing war between Jews against Iranians, the Jews have 37 points, and the Iranians have 0 points.
    Iran has failed, game over.

    This is not the first Zionist attack on Syria (or on the Iranians or Hezbollah in Syria). This is one of 100’s since the war began in 2011. Why has Assad not responded, why has Iran or Hezbollah not responded? By now we should know why. It’s because these are traps that have been set specifically to give Tel Aviv and Washington, London and Paris the excuse they are looking for a full scale assault on Syria that at this point may not change the outcome of the war but will prolong it indefinitely and take the Syrian Government and it’s allies years to recover from. Yes Russia is the reason that has not happened yet but that doesn’t mean it will not so that’s why Assad and his allies are being extremely cautious responding to Anglo Zionist provocations.

  • World_Eye

    And Russian Defense Minister said, S-500 the Upgrade system on S-400 will not replace the S-400s, the S-500 are just new radar and longer range missiles nothing more, they will be developed for only HVT targets, for Incoming ICBM threads, Cruise Missiles, Awaks, and many more other Munitions. and they will only be stationed for starters in Moscow area….

    Nuke Just Dropped on Syria
    Sunday, April 29, 2018 15:55
    “Reports that Israeli jets dropped a small tactical nuke on Syria today 4-29, normally we ignore these reports but we have confirmation as follows.
    International news confirms Syrian Bases attacked on 4-29 and earthquake monitors confirm a 2.6 quake hitting Syria, just a coincidence? Evidence is mounting.
    This would be a significant escalation by the Globalists trying to get the world into WWIII, with Russia allegedly planning to retaliate against Israel.”

      So Lebanon see Israel as threat and has right to defend itself, Syria see Israel as Threat and has right to defend itself, so all these countries according to your opinion should go and attack Israel on daily basis right? And where have you seen a base along the border, the only base of Iranians is in central Syria T4 base, by now since the start of the Syrian war how many times did Syria attack Israel = NONE and how many times did Israel attacked Syria = Uncountable. You make us laugh here, just another troll. Syria has the biggest right to defend itself especially when Syria never attacked Israel, what is happening is Israelii dogs only attack Syria when they wish for. So put your words straight ok, then talk, who use the lebanese Air-space for attacks, who enters Syria on daily basis to attack it the fucking Israel. don’t lecture us shit.

    Trump is coming after the next bad boy in line, Iran. Just as I predicted on this very forum. Iranians are being exterminated in Syria. Almost anyone flies into Syria a couple times every week and destroys some of Assad’s stuff, in this case his shia overlord, Iran’s, army. Turkey, Israel, UK, France and US appear to all be in on this, working together to exterminate every Iranian in Syria. When they cannot find anymore in Syria they will start on the ones in Lebanon. All the while Iran is forced to bend over and take it because they dare not provoke the wrath of Mad Dog Mattis. Will probably drag it out for a year or so to give the Iranian people some time to turn away from the path of total destruction followed by a fiery death their Mullahs are leading them down. Those poor dead Iranian devils sure know what total destruction and a fiery death feels like. Wonder if there are any Iranians in Yemen to go after?

    Trump will end the Iranian Nuke Treaty in May. Then sanctions will start to weaken Iran. The world will be forced to stop doing business with Iran. All commerce will be black market and cripple the weak economy.

    In any event as I have stated over an over again eventually Iran will strike directly at the US and that will give Mattis all the political and international license he needs to have his way with Iran. Maybe that direct strike at the US will be made up, who will ever know. I certainly do not want to know.

    Mattis will sink Iran’s navy in 24 hours. That crack Russian AD will work just as well for Iran as it has for Syria. Matters little since it will be taken out next. Then it will get very serious when 10 Tomahawk missiles show up at the home of every Iranian politician. I would lobby to do the Mullahs first but my guess is they will error on the side of being thorough and getting it right the first time.
    At that point the pre-arraigned military coup will start with a handful of generals taking control to save the Iranian people. The selected generals will turn Iran from the current path of total destruction followed by a fiery death and lead them down the path of peace and untold wealth.
    The Iranian people deserve peace and untold wealth.

    2.Russia has given to Iran both weapons and technology to produce effective AD weapons.
    3. Iran already has S-300. If Iran doesn’t use it to defend its forces than why should Russia do that?

    Those of you who blame Russia answer me one thing – do you expect us to fight your fights and die your deaths? We did it many times in history but we’re still cowards (if one listens to zio trolls), same io troll who’s parents was saved from Hitler (Who did it?) not long time ago.

Russian and American mothers love their sons and do not want them coming home in body bags.

      • John Brown

        Yes and they don’t even know if the air strikes were effective. Russia has promised and kept its promise to not allow any signifcant air strikes by Israel or its conquered slave vassal states like the USSA, France, the UK etc, again to not make any significant air strike against Syria which will cause significant damage or change the course of the war. Sure Israel blows up a couple of empty buildings here and there a tank or 2 in desperation, but that won’t have any effect on the course of and the winning of the war and Russia gets to test its weapons and capture American ones while this stuff goes on like when Iran captured the American drone and now his its own drone industry.
        Each air strike means Syria’s air defenses get stronger, with the S-300 and S-400 which takes time and Syria did not have the trained man power to make use of them earlier . Be patient and in 2 years Syria, Russia and Iran will make a no fly zone for Israeli etc. planes over Israel.

    Many of the children posting seem to think that war is about shooting lots of stuff, so for the benefit of the kids I will explain a few things.

    War is about winning, so first you need to know the motives and goals of the various players.

    The US wants to build a pipeline through Syria.
    Iran wants to build a pipeline through Syria.
    Iran offered to pay money to Syria, the US thought it would be better to chop Syria up and give pieces to Turkey Saudi Arabia and Israel.
    Russia wants to build a pipeline to Europe, initially under the Black Sea, and subsequently under the Baltic.
    The US stopped the Black sea pipeline, and is trying to stop the Baltic pipeline.

    So Russia, by stopping the US annexation of Syria has stopped the US pipeline.
    For the US to win, it has to build its pipeline.
    For Iran to win, it has to build its pipeline.
    For Russia to win, it merely has to stop the US pipeline.

    All Russia has to do is hold the coastal strip, to defeat the USA, which is pretty much mission accomplished.

    Israel is the wild card, because it wants to steal Syrian land and oil, and is not used to being told no.
    So the Israelis will continue to attack Syria, hoping that Syria will attack Israel, so Israel can make the US come to its aid.

    All wars are about money.

    • Thomas Wolsey

      I believe who Israel is the main goal for US and allies.
      Oil is just to hide the truth.

      • BL

        Exactly I stopped reading at “US wants to build a pipeline through Syria”. This is the Zionist psy ops disinformation narrative to hide the fact that the Syrian war is to break up Iran’s link to Hezbollah in Lebanon.

        • Sinbad2

          So is Afghanistan also for Israel?
          I guess the US gas pipeline has nothing to do with it?
          But it is pretty stupid, all the US had to do was pay the Taliban, and they would have had their pipeline. But as is so typically American, why pay when you can steal.

          • BL

            Afghanistan was to have a foothold in Central Asia against all surrounding countries (Iran, Russia, China), and yes it ultimately goes back to the (((Neo-con))) total world hegemony agenda.

          • Sinbad2

            Well that didn’t work out very well did it. That foothold is more like a trap that the suckers walked straight into.
            Just imagine how the Taliban would thrash the US if Iran, Russia or China started arming the Taliban.
            As it stands, if the US(Israel) attacks Iran, Iran would invade Afghanistan and capture tens of thousands of NATO troops.
            So it’s better for the alliance not to arm the Taliban, and just let the US keep paying to hide in forts in Afghanistan, until Iran needs the hostages.

        If it’s all about Israel, why did the US attack Libya, stage a coup in Ukraine invade Afghanistan and create an insurgency in Myanmar?
        All the nations the US attacks have oil or gas, does Israel want Myanmar and Ukraine?

        • Thomas Wolsey

          -Oded Yinon plan-
          Libya and afghanistan is a muslim nation and out of their control.
          Ukraine coup as to bring Ukraine do NATO side.
          If oil is the problem US can just invade Venezuela and leave the middle east in peace. Venezuela has no Russia or Iran military support and no nukes no anti air weapons venezuela is their free to be taken.
          Oil is not the reason.

          • Sinbad2

            I don’t think you understand how the petrodollar works, virtually all oil sold is in US dollars, those dollars come from American banks, who charge fees to change say Aussie dollars to US dollars, to pay say Saudi Arabia in US dollars for some oil.
            So then SA pays American banks a fee to convert the US dollars into Riyals.
            The US collects tax on every drop of oil sold in dollars, regardless of who the buyer or seller is.
            The whole world pays a tax to US banks, to trade.

            Some years back, the US was earning a billion dollars a day, in money changing fees.

  • You can call me Al

    The understandable frustration with Russia is growing, however a tit for tat response is the worst thing that can happen. This attack assumed to be carried out by Israel, is a step too far, but I believe is a distraction since the SAA not only attacked the East but is also attacking towards the Golan heights ….

    The last thing you should do is a knee jerk reaction, just wait because “revenge is best served cold”….let them have their day, increase their false confidence and then hammer the bastards.

  • Thomas Wolsey

    Is hard to understand what putin is doing.

  • Smaug

    This article is extremely speculative, maybe Israel did make the strikes but all this grapevine stuff adds up to simply a rumor. Other suspects include: Turkey, America, and the possibility that these reports have been fabricated.

  • Forget about Russia. They are worthless. Duplicitous at worst, ineffective at best. The question to ask is what can Iran do in response? Either directly of through proxies.

    • The Latin Mass

      develop as many new weapons of defense as possible.

  • R PLobo

    None of this will change the course of the war. It is just a propaganda distraction to avoid the stark reality that the zionists are facing. Soon the SAA, Hezbollah, Iran and Russia will be on the occupied Golan border. Then what? The game is up and there is nothing they can do – certainly even the US vassals will not go to ww3 for the occultists. Ultimately the goal of the Russians is containment of the empire of chaos.

  • RichardD

    What’s known is that coordinated attacks were carried out on some Syrian military facilities in western Syria. What’s not known is exactly by who or how the attacks were done. Until clarification on those unknowns is determined. It’s to soon to say how the attacks could have been prevented. Or what measures should be taken to deter them from occurring again.

  • georgeking

    Iran’s Air defense systems in Syria looking awful crappy.

  • S Melanson

    For the benefit of those spouting wisdom (or methane) on what Russia should or should not do.
    I like the statement of a poster regarding the goal is to win and to win, you succeed in meeting your objectives, whatever they might be (I think the goal of the Russians is more than preventing US pipeline). Looking at what Russia has done historically is instructive.

    Napoleons invasion of Russia saw the Russians retreat all the way back to Moscow with a scorched earth policy. Were the Russians cowards then? Well the Russians won. Sometimes winning requires retreat and avoiding engagement with enemy, focusing on skirmishes and attrition over time. Then your opponent weakened and overextended, attack. Russia has done this more than once. Hitlers invasion of USSR (Russia) in 1941 played out similarly to Napoleons Russian campaign and it worked.

    This brings to mind a conversation between DeGaulle and a Russian general near the end of the war In reply to the Russian general belittling France for capitulating so quickly to the Germans, DeGaulle stated “the only difference between us [France & Russia] is that you were able to run much further”.

    Russia is staying focused on the ‘prize’. The virtue of patience and focus.

    • Is winning allowing the US to occupy most of Northern Syria and all of its oilfields? If that’s winning, I hate to see what losing would look like.

      • Sinbad2

        Yes it is winning, the US is spending lots of money, that it has to borrow, and because the US is at war in so many places, it weakens the USA, open your eyes and look at the big picture, this isn’t some Hollywood fantasy, it’s the real deal General.

          • S Melanson

            Your statement is accurate except for one small change. Just scratch out ‘goods’ (but leave services) and there we have it.

          • Joe Dirt

            the business definition of economy…..

            economy – An entire network of producers, distributors, and consumers of goods and services in a local, regional, or national community.

          • Sinbad2

            I think the poster was referring to the US economy, which has a collapsing manufacturing sector and relies mostly on services to generate GDP.
            If you dig a bit deeper, you find that the exported services are dominated by financial services. Without the US dollar as the global reserve currency, the financial services sector would collapse.

            The US will have a financial collapse the only variable is when.

          • Joe Dirt

            Just stop. You don’t know shit about Ecomonics.

      • S Melanson

        I think I accidentally up voted my comment. Is there a way I can undo it?

        Cyril, I agree with you in that Russia hoped to prevent this but failed. This is a set back but when the terrorists you are ‘fighting’ are also following your orders, Russia and allies were greatly disadvantaged. This is one of the reasons for methodical degrading of the militants as they are proxy warriors for NATO (USA). Note that in the opening months of the Nazi invasion, the situation looked bleak for the Russians with Western powers basically writing off Russia. They were proven wrong, although Russia paid a horrific price before taking Berlin. The industrialized western part of Russia in ruins and 26,000,000 dead – research the seige of Leningrad and the battle of Stalingrad to get an idea of how tough the Russians truly are. Note Russian casualties far exceeded casualties of US, UK and France combined.

        So it remains to be seen although I think an important question that needs debate is what are the Russians are trying to accomplish. I think the answer needs to be broad spectrum – political, military, economic etc…

      Russia the sole player in the Napoleonic Wars? WTF? What history books are you reading?

      • Sinbad2

        The poster never stated that Russia was the sole player, you added that because you don’t have a cogent argument. Like all tards hurling abuse is all you are good at.

        • Joe Dirt

          Maybe you should read up on the Napoleonic Wars before opening up your fucking mouth!

          Russia would of never stopped Napoleon’s advance without the Brits! The campaign Melanson is talking about, Russia retreated, retreated, and retreated, until winter. It was the Russian winter that killed Napoleon’s army, not some brilliant military strategy. That shit worked back in 1812 before modern technology. But in with all the modern advances to logistics. NAHHHHHHHHHH

          • S Melanson

            Excellent, thank you Joe for agreeing with me. The retreat was to allow time for winter to arrive and with scorched earth, they died in droves due to exposure. It was the plan and it worked. As for modern times, well, look up Russian winter of 1941/1942.

          • Joe Dirt

            This is 2018 and Russia cannot use the winter as an escape goat anymore

          • S Melanson

            I agree, and particularly true in Syria!

          • Joe Dirt

            Russia will go bankrupt if tries to move hundreds of thousand of men and equipment into Syria, it’s expensive and can be logistically difficult to do.

            This is why Russia has not committed more than 10,000 troops to Syria.

          • Sinbad2

            Funnily enough I think you have exposed the Russian plan.
            Russia has run a very frugal campaign, but the Americans have been burning money as fast as they can print it.
            Ultimately the least bloody way to defeat America is financially, and I think that is exactly what Russia and China are doing.

      How is Russia stopping the Jew’s Syrian regime change project, and embedding Iran and Hezbollah in Syria protecting Israel?

      • JamesAPalaiologos

        Russia is controlled opposition, just like the Jew, Hitler. Keep in mind the Zionists PUBLISHED the Yinon plan. None of us know why. Those who claim to know are just speculating. Jews rule by means of deception by employing the maxim of “whatever means necessary” through fraud and propaganda. Also note they aren’t exactly fighting to the death to counter the information coming out about what they’re up to in the ME and what their satanic book says about the goyim. Historically speaking the odds are almost certain they have some crooked plan to utilize these forces to their advantage in the future.

        • RichardD

          That’s a dodge. You didn’t answer the question:

          How is Russia stopping the Jew’s Syrian regime change project, upgrading Syrian air defense systems, and embedding Iran and Hezbollah in Syria protecting Israel?

          • JamesAPalaiologos

            The general masses will naturally be opposed to the plan, so they have to establish a “good guy” corral that will appear to represent formidable and active opposition. Then the people can feel content sitting on their hands waiting for someone to solve the problem. But the solving never comes because in some way, by design, the movement is controlled or rendered harmless.

            This is how it helps to “protect” Israel, which is really doublespeak for advancing Zionist interests. You can’t go straight at the objectives or else everyone would understand what’s going on and would oppose it. You have to proceed incrementally — two steps forward, one step back — to gradually achieve the net end results using people who appear to be your friend, profiting off the spread of gains and losses. The same pattern is repeated again and again in modern history.

          • RichardD

            If you really believed that you’d make an attempt to explain how the Syrian government coalition winning the war, upgrading Syria’s air defense system and embedding Russia, Iran and Hezbollah in Syria serves the Jew’s interests. So rather than retreating again into conspiracy hypothethics. Why don’t you answer my questions with real world specifics?

Russia’s reputation is at stake, what about the life of the whole GD planet?

    Perhaps if we knew more we would be more supportive. The bottom line is Russia is the only game in town. Syria would have been another Libya 3 years ago if it weren’t for the Russians. Who else would have stepped up? Aliens.

    All this talk of war strikes me as playing into the empire playbook. It’s obvious they need a war so hell let’s go!

        So why did the US have the Truman there?
        Was it to follow up with an air assault after the missile attack had taken out the AA?
        I mean that’s how the US usually attacks a country, so why did the US stop?
        Fact is the US was planning a major aerial attack, using the same method used in Iraq and Libya, but it collapsed when the US failed to disable the Syrian AA.
        This was a major defeat for the US, the propaganda might hide the failure from the American people, but the Governments of other countries know the truth, the Syrians beat the US, and did it effortlessly.

      The radar range depends on which radar the S400 comes with.
      Optional acquisition radars cited for the S-400 include the 59N6
      Protivnik GE and 67N6 Gamma DE
      in the L-band, but also the 1L119
      Nebo SVU in the VHF band, and the multiband Nebo M.
      The Nebo SVU/M have a claimed capability against stealth aircraft. In
      addition to further acquisition radar types, the S-400 has been
      trialled
      with the Topaz Kolchuga M,
      KRTP-91 Tamara / Trash Can, and 85V6 Orion / Vega emitter
      locating
      systems, the aim being to engage emitting targets without
      emitting from the acquisition radars, or if the acquisition radars have
      been jammed. In June, 2008, the manufacturer disclosed the integration
      of the 1RL220VE, 1L222 and 86V6 Orion emitter locating
      systems with the S-400.

      You obviously know how the S400’s in Syria are equipped, so perhaps you could enlighten us all?

      • mk

        there is a difference between detecting missiles and engaging them. the detection radius depends on the radars but the combat radius depends on the s 400 missiles.
        the declassified range of these missiles is 400km hence even if the radar detect missiles 420 km away it still wouldn’t be able to engage them at that distance.

        • RichardD

          Hama isn’t 400km away. So it’s well within the S-400s range. And the Syrians have a lot of air defense assets themselves. Until it’s known what was used in the attacks, analyzing coulda, woulda, shoula can’t be addressed with any specificity.

  • mk

    once again guys Russia air defence layer doesn’t cover the entire Syria and cannot do anything if an attack occurs outside their combat zone. so stop calling on Russia any time there is a strike any where in Syria.

      • Willing Conscience (The Truths

        Good on you Richard it’s hard for mk to argue with this. But this is not the entire picture either, the system itself can disperse over a very large area covering hundreds of km from one central location, Command vehicle in the center and Radars and missile launchers placed at strategically vital points up to 100km away. Also the command center doesn’t have to only rely on it’s own radar systems for coverage, it can enlist several other radar systems into it’s own system further increasing it’s max range. I think it could even use airport radars or Syrian military radars if they were integrated into the system but I’m not sure. The only way for aircraft to avoid being detected by the S-400 anywhere at all in Syria, is to stay as low as they can for as long as they can, but even then they are still vulnerable to the system. If enemy aircraft are spotted visibly but not detected on radar, the system has specialized missiles that have an excellent onboard radar which allows them to detect and target the enemy aircraft on their own. After launch they’re directed to the vicinity of the enemy aircraft and then go into search and destroy mode hopefully detecting it’s target and destroying it. A brilliant system if the specs are to be believed but until they’re proven in combat, we won’t know for sure. SO RUSSIA HAS FULL COVERAGE OF EVERY INCH OF SYRIAN AIRSPACE AND MUCH MORE, NO MORE EXCUSES mk.

      Syria’s radars are limited vs Russia which can see deep into Israel…
      Russia can know exactly which IAF airbase aircraft just left .
      If Russian Radar does not pass on the data/vectors to Syrian Airdefence. ..Syria is limited to short read/react if stand off Munis arrive via Lebanon or some corridor Israel knows SAA radar is not having % coverage.
      Syria’s Point defence is decent.
      Israel is probably using a series of multimode adjusting cruise missiles and ECM Jamming.
      Vs what Syria and Iran have as EW/ECM Jamming. …Israel may indeed hold the better hand.
      Russia’s EW/ECM and airdefence would be superior to Israel’s technology.
      We know from past years attacks that Putin does next to nothing to stop Israel attack on Iran/IRGC in Syria.

  • Srini Rao

    As Russians said more than once, these attacks of israeli’s and west are acts out of desperation from weakness not from strength. Russia doesn’t need to stop every violence, stop big ones and expose it so that the population of that nation take care of their insane leaders. See US ptb struggling with Trump, left vs right, US vs EU etc.

    • The problem is they don’t stop anything which only encourages more attacks. I don’t know why they are there at all if they are going to allow Syria to be pummeled at will. Israel can launch an attack every day if they wish.

      The quake was at 2km, what bunker buster does that?

      • 888mladen .

        All depends on the fault line. HARP can do that. Find on YouTube a video done by an expert who caused a mini earthquake in California with very simple device producing very low frequency much less powerful than HARP.

        • RichardD

          Harp isn’t a nuclear bunker buster.

          • 888mladen .

            Both are the sources of energy, aren’t they?

          • RichardD

            Do you have scientific proof of nukes creating Harp like quakes? If it was a nuke releasing that type of energy it would register at the detonation depth. Not 2km deeper.

          • 888mladen .

            Do you have scientific proof that there is a such thing as atom? Or perhaps you can give me proof for the existence of a number. However it is generally accepted that Maths is a science.

          • RichardD

            Your answer is evasive and nonsensical. Which means that you don’t have any scientific proof of nukes causing Harp like quakes a distance from their detonation.

          • 888mladen .

            Your knowledge of science has not been very impressive otherwise you would have clearly taken the point. So it must have been coincidence? Now it’s your turn to prove your theory.

      • 888mladen .

        So it must have been coincidence? Is that what you are trying to say?

        • RichardD

          I don’t know what caused the quake. At 2km deep, it wasn’t caused by munitions, other than as a secondary after effect releasing tension that was already there.

          • 888mladen .

            Now you sound more intelligible.

          • RichardD

            What did I say that wasn’t?

    Russia. You have gained a lot of respect. You became the worlds new super power.
    You are quickly turning into a joke of the very worst sort.

    • RichardD

      What munitions did the attackers use and what Russian equipment failed to perform properly? If you can’t answer those questions, then it’s you, not Russia who looks foolish.

      • jerry hamilton

        The problem is that this information is being withheld.

        • RichardD

          The problem is that you don’t know what you’re talking about and are coming on these threads and making guilty till proven innocent unfounded allegations.

          • jerry hamilton

            What is the unfounded allegation?

          • RichardD

            “You are quickly turning into a joke of the very worst sort.”

          • jerry hamilton

            That is a guilty till proven innocent unfounded allegation?

          • RichardD

            Can you prove it? If you can’t, then it’s unfounded.

          • jerry hamilton

            Prove what exactly?

          • RichardD

            “You are quickly turning into a joke of the very worst sort.”

          • jerry hamilton

            I need to prove a joke? To you?
            Putin made statements that have not been adhered to.
            So they can not be taken seriously.
            You have a problem with that?

          • RichardD

            A joke is a false allegation if it isn’t true.

          • jerry hamilton

            Your straws are becoming very thin. A joke is a joke.
            You are arguing for the sake of it.
            I’m finished with you and blocking you.

          • RichardD

            You made a false allegation that Russia is “turning into a joke”. You can’t prove it and are now running away like the liar and intellectual coward that you are.

          • jerry hamilton

            I love this. I know you posted more stupidity and I don’t have to read it.

          • RichardD

            I posted the truth exposing your lies and unfounded allegations. You made a fool of yourself, I simply brought your attention to it.

          • jerry hamilton

            Shoo.

          • RichardD

            “Russia. You have gained a lot of respect. You became the worlds new super power.
            You are quickly turning into a joke of the very worst sort.”

            Try proving your point. What exactly in respect to these attacks described in the article that you’re commenting on has Russia done wrong that is causing Russia to quickly turn into a joke of the very worst sort?

        • Sinbad2

          Oh you mean those nasty Israelis won’t tell us what they used and how they did it, that’s just terrible, send a nasty letter to Netanjupu.

          • jerry hamilton

            Sorry…. You know what happened?

  • Nigel Maund

    Russia ………….a bit slow in getting those S300’s delivered!! This attack should hurry along the decision making and get these in country and established; i.e., operational asap as procrastination is the thief of time? Also, it’s long past time the IAF received a long overdue bloody nose? ….. rather than behave as the Regional Hegemon, which is precisely what it has been for 70 years thanks to the USA, UK and Global Zionist bankers like the Rothschild’s and their bankster mates.

    • RichardD

      What munitions did the attackers use and what Russian equipment failed to perform properly? If you can’t answer those questions, then it’s you, not Russia who looks foolish.

      • Nigel Maund

        Did you read what I wrote and understand it? Where did I mention Russian equipment that failed to perform?? So sorry Mate it’s you that looks foolish!

        • RichardD

          Of course I read it, why else would I respond, and why are you criticizing Russia for being slow delivering S-300s when you don’t know what types of missiles that the attackers used, what they were launched from, what types of air defense systems where present at the targets, and if any were intercepted?

          There are a lot of Russia bashers making allegations of Russian negligence or complicity in these types of attacks. But when you ask them these questions, none of them have the answers. Can you answer any of these questions for these attacks and provide supporting links for your answers?

          And if you can’t, why are you accusing Russia of inaction?

    • Java Ape Timelord

      The s300s have been delivered, just not placed, so I read. I wonder if that was the real target?

  • Phil Thomson

    Keep in mind that Israel hit targets stationed as close as 50Km or so to the S-400. Well within its range. I would think if it was truly capable of intercepting such type of low flying, gliding ordnance, it would have.

    • More likely the Russians help guide it along its flight path to its target.

  • Don’t read butthurt replies

    I would’ve love to see North Korea provide support to Syria. Old times Communist countries wouldn’t have let these parasitic reptilians get away with their crime.

  • frankly

    It’s obviously too early, all the pieces aren’t in place. The parts of the country that have returned to government control are quiet and peaceful. The Israelis and F.UK.US are scared and ask yourself why?

    It’s like the bully in the schoolyard who picked on one too many little kids. The kids are making a plan and building capacity. They are not going off half cocked. They walk around in a crowd instead of alone. Maybe the plan won’t lead to a massive cannon fodder kill off, but a gradual kill of the leadership until the machine just grinds to a halt like the ending of War of the Worlds.

    Maybe I am completely alone in this but my faith is that Putin will do the right things needed to save lives and the planet. Anyone screaming fight, fight, fight has not paid any attention to thousands of years of warfare. When war happens those truly looking to F.UK.US and their friends, gain money and power and the ordinary people, on BOTH sides!, Lose everything.

    “All three positions are known to be bases of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and different Iranian-backed armed groups. According to Syrian opposition sources, several Iranian serivcemembers were killed in the strikes”…ANOTHER ZIONIST ATTACK ON IRANIAN TROOPS PROVOKING IRAN TO ATTACK ISRAHELL. AND THE ZIONIST TO CALL THEIR DEEP STATE UNITED STATES VASSALS TO DEFEND ISRAHELL.

  • Hide Behind

    Putin publicly stated, Russia was. In Syria tobprotect Syria not Assad
    He also openly deeded to US and Eurocentric allies all Syrian lands North of Euphrates.
    PUTIN, I AM NOT YOUR FRIEND, I AN FOR RUSSIA, I REPRESENT RUSSIA FIRST AND FOREMOST.
    DAMN, Syrians have still not fully mobilized all its manpower and resources of own, and constantly want Russia to carry more of the fight than they.
    As soon as Syrians gain a village using Russian air power and arms supplies. The old tribal leaders go back in and sit on butts hollering for handouts, supplied by whom. Once again Russia.
    MULLAHS ARE GREAT FOR TALKING UP WAR, but damn useless in fighting it, while being supported by their flocks.
    Iran has missles for air defence where are they in Syria.
    The technical knowledge so necessary in order for people and their nations to advance has historicly been kept out of most Syrians reach, with but elites familys going to europe for skills in finance to come home and sit on bureaucratic butts.
    If Houthis in Yemen can fabricate crude Scuds on own, where the heck is Syria lacking?
    SYRIA is the size of N. Dakota, but far greater population, and N. Dakota National Guard is larger than Syrian military. And N. DAKOTA IS not being invaded.
    If that State , or any State of US was invaded over 90% of populace, men women of all ages and children would be fighting back. And no holds barred, no mercy bus trips, only ropes and bullets for enemy.
