Syrian Air Defense Forces Shoot Down "Enemy Objects" Over Damascus (Updated)

Illustrative image

UPDATE 2: The Israeli side also noted that “Reports regarding an IDF aircraft or an airborne IDF target having been hit are false.”

UPDATE: The Israeli military said on Twitter:

During a Syrian surface-to-air missile launching, one launch was identified towards an open area in the Golan Heights. At this point, it remains unclear if the launch indeed landed in Israeli territory. IDF troops are searching the area.

*********

At the late hours of November 29, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported that the Syrian Arab Air Defense Forces (SyAADF) had shot down several unidentified flying objects over the district of al-Kiswah south of the Syrian capital of Damascus.

“Initial reports say that all enemy objects were destroyed and didn’t reach any of their targets,” the SANA said in a short press release.

Local sources told SouthFront that the SyAAD is still launching surface-to-air missiles at flying objects over Damascus and al-Quneitra. Several loud explosions were also heard between the two governorates.

The available information indicate that the Israeli Air Force (IAF) attempt to strike positions of Iranian forces south of Damascus. However, the Syrian and Israeli media are yet to provide more details.

If confirmed, this would be the first Israeli airstrike on Syria since the downing of the Russian Il-20 intelligence plane on September 17. Following the incident, Russia supplied Syria with the S-300 air defense system and an advanced command and control system.

  • Well, flying objects could be litteraly anything.
    From stupid drone worth US$500 up to F15 worth US$100 million.
    My estimation – it was probably a hoax or Israeli attempt of missile attack.
    Israel is not stupid enough to test Syrian SAMs with valuable targets like their own fighter jets.
    And F35 is still grounded since October 2018 if I’m informed well.

    • John Whitehot

      “And F35 is still grounded since October 2018 if I’m informed well”

      That regards the USAF/USN/USMC.

        F-35 grounded………

        no that is incorrect………..

        F-35s back in skies after two days of worldwide grounding

        Image
        : U.S. Air Force
        More
        than 80% of the global fleet of Lockheed Martin F-35s was back in the
        air on October 15, 2018, after being grounded for two days. The Pentagon
        ordered for flights to be suspended following a crash on September 28,
        2018 − the first for the new fighter.
        On
        October 11, 2018, Joe DellaVedova, spokesperson for the U.S. Department
        of Defense, announced that “U.S. forces and their international
        partners have temporarily suspended F-35 flight operations” to allow the
        aircraft fuel lines to be inspected. “The primary goal following any
        mishap is the prevention of future incidents,” he said in a statement.
        “We will take every measure to ensure safe operations while we deliver,
        sustain and modernize the F-35 for the warfighter and our defense
        partners”. Along with the United States, Israel and the United Kingdom
        also operate the plane.

        The
        48 hours inspection came after initial results from the crash
        investigation determined that it was due to a “faulty engine tube”. The
        number of F-35s that took back to the skies has not been detailed, but
        it represents about 80% of the global fleet. According to defense media Stars and Stripes, the U.S. military had enough spare tubes to repair half of the faulty aircraft.

        On
        September 28, 2018, a Lockheed Martin F-35B (STOVL version) belonging
        to the U.S. Marine Fighter Attack Training Squadron 501 crashed
        during a training flight on September 28, 2018, about 5 miles (8
        kilometers) away from the Beaufort Air Station (KNBC) in South Carolina,
        United States. The pilot managed to eject safely. No other damage was
        reported except for the crashed aircraft.

        US military suffers first crash of F-35 during training mission

        A Lockheed Martin F-35B (STOVL version) belonging to the U.S. Marine
        Fighter Attack Training Squadron 501 crashed during a training flight on
        September 28, 2018, about 5 miles (8 kilometers) away from the Beaufort
        Air Station (KNBC) in South Carolina, United States. The pilot managed
        to eject safely. No other damage was reported except for the crashed
        aircraft.

        This incident happened a day after F-35Bs were used for the first time by the USMC for a combat mission.
        On September 27, 2018, several aircraft belonging to the Fighter Attack
        Squadron 211 took off from the amphibious assault ship USS Essex to
        carry out an airstrike in Afghanistan

          “You really need to check you’re sources. Most of the fleet has been in the air for over a month.”

          You really need to reply to the other user, who made the initial statement. I never talked about times but about the countries involved.

          • CheeseFInger

            Which you also implied that the UKs were grounded as well which is also wrong.

          • John Whitehot

            i did not imply anything.

            Also, it is true that the UK grounded its fleet and you are talking shit.

            the only thing i assumed – without telling it – is that if a israeli jet has been downed then it MAY be a f35 as well, something the previous user wanted to exclude.

            as for the jet, you and other said it was shot down, not me. secondly, we hardly get to know when israeli jets are shot down, the best proof for it is the impotent rage bibi and the former mindef of israel were versing of late.

    • Concrete Mike

      All im hearing is you fart out more nonsense from your mouth…h2s breath

    also it appears that the IDF is checking for a “projectile” that fell on the golan heights.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Please let it be an F35 :)

      • jorge

        May be it fell in Quneitra, because they can’t find it.

  • potcracker2588

    The Israeli military has described reports that one of its jets
    was brought down while carrying out airstrikes in Syria as “bogus,” amid
    reports that the country’s air defense systems engaged and downed
    several “hostile targets”.

    Israeli Defense Forces
    have refused to comment on the country’s alleged role in the attack,
    with a spokesperson saying that they’re not commenting on reports in
    foreign media. Yet the IDF has denied a particular report that it had
    lost a warplane during the raid on Syria.

    A Syrian security source earlier told RIA Novosti that an Israeli jet was among the targets downed by the air defense. “Our air defense have downed an Israeli jet and four rockets before they could reach their targets,” the source said.

    Meanwhile,
    Syria TV reported that a missile strike against Syria was deflected,
    without specifying what the downed objects were. The incident reportedly
    occurred in the Kiswah area, located 13 kilometers (8 miles) south of
    Damascus.

          I said it many times – Jews (their talmudic ideology) are just a willing instrument in the hands of that global vermin. BTW their own masters love to sacrify them en masse from time to time (to make Goyim feel revenged). Rumors are that those at the top of this ugly piramid decided that this instrument becoming absolete and planning for next and this time final holocaust. As I said many times – Bibi is leading his people to the slaughter and he knows it.

            I know. It was for fun writing like that.

            My last one was Assad would make peace with Israel taking Westbankers as new spendables. After all, they are Syrians too.

            Another one was the Assad zone, where the news was, that outside the frontzone, it was difficult to find men having more then one leg.

            Another: When George Soros now has left Turkey, there is nothing worth stealing.

            The problem with your perspective is that it’s not supported by credible proof. My anti Judaic contention is. So you’re either involved in blame shifting away from the true culprits, you’re simply wrong with no proof, or you have proof that I haven’t seen you present.

      • Jens Holm

        About what. Why dont You write the missile seen on the picture was afraid and homesick too.

        Its as Mike says. We dont know much. Seemes You prefare only that. Thats why some bunches of Jews control all muslims and many more.

        If Russians or the Chinese took over, You would have to blame them too – Because You still insist in no changing.

    Looks like they also shot down an F-15. “A Syrian security source told RIA Novosti that an IDF jet was one of the targets downed.” Russia Today and Al Masdar News

    • potcracker2588

      sorry very sorry to say no…SAA repelled the attack, hence brought down the missiles fired by them satanic jews but it seems from the latest news at RT and Sputnik that the satanic jews lost no plane……….
      whats more interesting is that the attack was on iranian military installations as 2 months before, and as i recall, the iranians fired 60+ missiles at israeli targets at occuipied golan back….with the message that from now on attack will be met by attack…so lets see if there is a backlash

      • Patriotic_White_American

        So S300 FAILED and hit no planes

        • Ricky Miller

          Or, the S300 deterred Israeli planes from launching missiles in locales and on vectors more suitable to actually accomplishing a successful attack. Meaning, Israel’s attack appears to have been impotent. That’s news too. This attack seems like a probe, test. Looking for a reach around. You make crazy, arrogant conclusions ahead of what you know.

          • Ricky Miller

            And if I had to guess I’d say, based on how fast Israel refuted a plane being shot down, that this attack involved surface to surface or cruise missiles. No planes to shoot down. Just missiles, who so far by all reports failed to destroy any target.

          • Patriotic_White_American

            The response to 15 dead Russians was impotent, son.

            If failing to hit a single Israeli plane is the best the Russians got, they’re in trouble LOL

          • Ricky Miller

            And when has Russia fired anything at an Israeli aircraft? Powder dry. And you jumping to conclusions without facts in evidence. Care to explain why IsraeI launched a missile strike from over Palestine? Compared to past strikes that was a long way off and led to a situation where all missiles were intercepted, but here you are so desperate to trumpet some success that doesn’t exist. Both Israel’s behavior and your loud mouthing speak volumes about the continuing change in circumstances in the skies above Syria

          • Patriotic_White_American

            They don’t fire anything at Israel, because they’re scared shitless of getting their ass kicked by a country the size of New Jersey

            That didn’t stop them from getting fucked up in the 70’s by the IAF

            Seemed miraculous back in 1970 that IDF did so well. At the time, suspected US had a significant hand in the victory. Some US pilots would have given their left nut to down a MiG. Best fighter jets in the world with outstanding Israeli pilots. Have to believe Russia had their best pilots and fighter jets going against Israel. Russia lost at least 5 planes in the first couple minutes before running home to MaMa with far more than a bloody nose. Russia was dominated and punished. No, Russia was embarrassed and there military jets were exposed for the joke they still are.

          • verner

            not really – the odious israelis have just stayed away in the knowledge that they will be shot down, for the world to see and that is something they can’t allow to happen, putrid scum that they are. and the same applies to the disunited states of A, just as putrid and like the israelis, only attacks the ones that can’t put up a fight.
            and now they, the odious disunited states of A, is just waiting for a quick exit back across the Atlantic and Syria, Russia, Iran and others will score another victory and the disunited states of friggin A yet another losss. hehe

          • LR captain

            failing to hit a plan does not matter when you’re aiming for the missiles that plane fired.

            also when the tomahawk was first produced hit had an accuracy rating of 95% during the missile strikes of on syria that accuracy was less than 40% and the Syrians got the wreckage, debris and even two non-detonated ones to prove it.

            So you tell me what brought the accuracy down to 40%. Was it the russian E warefare system that then proves that they can have a decent effect on american cruise missiles.

            Or if you believe that Russian E warfare systems had no effect on the cruise missiles then you would blaming the operators that fired them.

          • Patriotic_White_American

            Russians shot down nothing.

            Every time state media publishes fake reports of Syrian interception, footage always comes out showing the strikes on the ground

            Just like in Latakia next to the Russian airbase

            Only the most desperate dummies cling to their state generated fantasies

          • LR captain

            you don’t need 76 missile to target one building so what brought accuracy down to 40%

          • “So you tell me what brought the accuracy down to 40%.”
            Have you considered the possibility it was just the usual ‘US efficiency’ of overpaying the highest bidder – no competence or quality required?

            Manufacturer’s tests show an accuracy of 95% – but where else have they actually been tested against a real defense system?

            Just sayin’… maybe it was Russian EW, maybe it was their own incompetence – or maybe a combination of both.

          • LR captain

            i also did say

            Or if you believe that Russian E warfare systems had no effect on the cruise missiles then you would blaming the operators that fired them.

            so i kind did also cover the field of incompetence.

          • Yes…. I was thinking …. not so much operator incompetence as … faulty equipment.

          • Not quite – it made Israel impotent…..
            For two months the only Yisraeli attacks on Syria have been verbal attacks to attack Syria and to “destroy the S300’s.” Then their first attack since and the Syrians nullify it absolutely with good ol’ S200’s. (The training for the S300s will only be finished in January.)

            PS. Silly boy – it was the Syrians doing the shooting – not the Russians.
            Now you’re welcome to buy some Yisraeli shìte that it was friendly fire and not Syria but sheesh man – you really need to wake up.

          • zman

            He has to, because he doesn’t know shit, what he does know is BULLSHIT. Just another Israeli owned bitch to be blocked.

        • Willing Conscience (The Truths

          Where Israeli planes really the targets, the S-300’s may not have failed if the targets were something else and not Israeli jets and missiles, they may have worked perfectly, lets wait and see what they were actually shooting at and hit. The targets may have been rockets fired from the rebels in golan for all we know, and not Israeli jets, we might find out tomorrow what really happened.

          • GANGA PRASAD R K

            Russia is afraid to hit Israeli jets or s-300s are useless junk

        • Nosferatu

          Said who? the same “media” that claimed Sadam had WMD?

        • LR captain

          they did not use the s-300 in replling this attack though. so cutt the crap

        • ruca

          They didn’t fire anything from the S-300 systems. However all radars are integrated, which means the old systems have top-notch targeting. Typical american mentality. What’s it like to have your country controlled by zionists? Are you happy with that?

        • They didn’t use the S300…. just those old 2’s.

          • Ricky Miller

            Exactly. In fact the S300’s are more than a hundred kilometers North of Damascus. Which means that Israel considers them effective, operationally seeing how this strike was launched from farther South over Israel than ever before. Israeli aircraft are flying over Lebanon but not launching strikes from there. So the S300 remains untested and Israeli planners are operationally avoiding challenging it for now, including this stunt strike which by even the most optimistic Imperial reports had little to no military signifigance. I do agree that Russia must be imposing constraints on Syria’s use of the system, at least for now. Israeli jets flying and being tracked over Lebanon on a night after Israeli state violence against Syria have to be fired at.

      • Tudor Miron

        They deny that they lost a plane – that doesn’t mean that they actually didn’t.

          But what matters is that all the missiles were shot down.

          • Tudor Miron

            Yes and this is different to what happened before. It shows that Syrian AD improved a lot.

          • jorge

            We can call it a syrian-russian AD. The Syrians are also amassing artillery, rocketts and missiles launchers, and I read somewhere, two or three weeks ago, that new T-90 tanks arrived. The elite divisions are also all in place, so the offensive seems to be ready to start. I think that is going to happen in this de-escalation zone what happened on the others three before. In the practice, the de-escalation agreements, and the last demilitarized zone agreement, are political operations proceeding the military ones. and the conclusion that these pauses only make stronger the takfiris is a fake one, because no one can expect that on preparing his offensive, the ennemy will not profit to prepare his correlated defensive.

          • beypuutyina

            sure with expensive rockets take down dummy missiles :DDDD

      May I ask where you caught that? Because all the images so far of air defense missiles taking off were way too slow out of the gate to be any missile types of the S300 variety. That doesn’t mean they were not launched from elsewhere but so far it just looks like missile intercepts.

    • Patriotic_White_American

      LOLOL

      Looks like they missed again

      S400 is the most expensive piece of junk on earth ;)
      Those Russian air defenses are trash hahaha

      • Ricky Miller

        LoL indeed. Al-Masdar news (Lebanon) has Syrian Government pictures of partially destroyed Israeli missiles burning and mangled in a barren and rocky field. The Syrian armed forces state that no missile reached it’s target tonight. Epic Fail. An Israeli strike which rolled into a gutter ball! Now, that’s new and worth a real laugh out loud and a prayer of thanks for some people in Syria who get to go on living tonight.

        • Carne João Pasta

          Sweet! yeah, it’s a new kind of defense system, ridiculing and belittling the advanced missile defense systems and rendering it neutralized, null & void. Maybe that’s what the Salafists are actually saying when they chant a bunch of rubbish when they are getting their asses blown up? Just missing the fingers in the ears and tongue out. An effective military tactic, isn’t it? lol.

        Perhaps White America should test them? As an Act of Pure Patriotism? Self-Immolation would be of considerable assistance to the rest of the World!!

    • Xanatos

      Isreal is too afraid to risk a plane over syria right now. They are testing air defenses with missile strikes.

      To test properly, they need to launch their fastest missiles first, and if it hits is target then launch slower and slower missiles until they know what speed and distance a war plane can fly over Syria.

      • By then those new S-300s staff will be fully trained.
        …. They might well appreciate the practice.

      Thats how escalarion is. Israelians can kill as many in Gaza as they want. So fo on. I dont now

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – The Spokesperson for the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) tweeted this evening that one Syrian surface-to-air missile was launched towards an open area in the occupied Golan Heights.

    “During a Syrian surface-to-air missile launching, one launch was
    identified towards an open area in the Golan Heights. At this point, it
    remains unclear if the launch indeed landed in Israeli territory. IDF
    troops are searching the area,” the IDF Spokesperson tweeted.

    They would add that “reports regarding an IDF aircraft or an airborne IDF target having been hit are false.”

    The Israeli Defense Forces did not say whether or not they were
    behind tonight’s attack on the southwestern countryside of Damascus.

But here you are all wrapped up in a failed Israeli missile strike that the S300 wasn’t even needed to counter. If you mean what your name implies than you’re all wound up about the wrong things.

        • Bobby Twoshoes

          Of course he doesn’t mean what he says; a patriot resists tyrannical governments, they certainly don’t participate in their disinformation campaigns. Americans aren’t known for their oratorical prowess so I’m guessing he is simply confusing “patriot” with “patsy”.

  • R Trojson

    How stupid are the Russians? The S300 can easily tell the difference between an F35, drone or flying object. Hope they are not letting Syrians operate the air defense because then they are probably shooting down Russian planes.

  • SurfaceBook

    wait for few months and then IDF will release official news of another “birdstrike” on its wonderful stealth Jet..

  • John Whitehot

    The Syrians released a statement saying that the attack was performed firstly from north-palestinian airspace, by aircraft launching stand off missiles towards Damascus.

    A second attack was conducted shortly after, again by the same airspace, and with the participation of a drone that was shot down.

    A third wave was conducted with ground launched ballistic missiles.
    An explosion was heard in the israeli occupied golan heights area, after which the zionist turned off all the lights in the zone.

    All the attacking missiles were shot down or did not reach their targets.

    The Syrians have called the attack the largest ever conducted so far (presumably from Israel).

    The Israelis seem to deny that an attack has even taken place, although video footage exist of the SAA AD firing missiles in the night sky.

    Perhaps more updates will follow, the above comes from the SAA facebook page.

    • Patriotic_White_American

      So what you’re saying is that shitty s400 failed or the 200th time to shoot down an Israeli jet and you have 0 evidence to prove it did?

          • Ricky Miller

            Bull. There is no evidence or discussion of damage in any report. And any video, downloaded or shot anywhere from past events is not evidence I accept, certainly not on Twitter. Even Israel is ducking involvement in this stunt. And the underlying truth is that whomever tried a suker punch strike last night did it in a way to avoid exposing their aircraft and launched it from distance. That’s a change from past events whether you acknowledge it or not.

          • Patriotic_White_American
          • Ricky Miller

            Off topic. And old news. Fact: Israel did not attack in the usual way last night and there is no confirmed evidence they struck any target successfully. If Israeli aircraft venture too close in order to increase the efficiency of the attack I predict that they’ll be shot down.

          • Patriotic_White_American

            Wishful thinking, the videos show multiple buildings on fire and missiles landing proving that Air Defenses utterly failed

            It’s obvious Russians and Syrians aren’t terribly sophisticated in their air defense

          • Ricky Miller

            If that’s true than we are surely headed for a dangerous place. What you are concluding is that air defense is always so at a disadvantage that the only real defense against an air and missile attack is a powerful return strike. If that’s the only real defense, even for a country like Russia who has these SAM’s that attack aircraft at better than Mach 10, than there seems little hope at avoiding escalating missile strikes if Russia has to defend herself against a NATO assault. That means escalating to the types of missiles that change everything for life on Earth, especially human societies.

          • Patriotic_White_American

            The SM-3 travels at Mach 10

            New upgrade makes it at Mach 15

            It works too and probably has multirole capabilities like the Sm-6

            Maybe Russia needs new engineers

          • Ricky Miller

            Or just build thousands of attacking and ballistic missiles to retaliate to any attack? Bring destruction on a vast scale. They have plenty of engineering knowledge for that.

          • Ricky Miller

            Worse. 1 egg made by Assads makes many chickens and even his chickens lays eggs.

    If the reports are true of a complete failure of the blood sucking baby raper’s attack. This marks a quantum leap in Syrian air defense capability. Which up to this point was usually partially successful. Syria’s 1,000 launcher strong air defense system hardware hasn’t changed much, except for the addition of the S-300s. Which there are no reports that they were even used.

    If that’s indeed the case. Then the only thing that’s changed is the integration of Syria’s launch system into the Russian satcom network that they were originally designed for. And rather than operating as partially or completely stand alone systems. Much of the hardware on the ground now has much more advanced awareness of what’s coming. And with this improved tracking and targeting capability, can take down enemy weapons much more effectively.

    There’s also the issue of upgraded deployment of Russian electronic warfare systems. Which probably played a part as well. None of this looks good for Israel or NATO. And it stands as a stark warning to the US in Al-Tanf and SDF held areas that their planes and troops are very vulnerable.

    Hopefully the no fly zone excluding NATO and Israeli aircraft over 70% of Syria’s skies will be expanded to Al-Tanf and SDF held areas with few or any hostilities. And the Syrian government coalition forces can advance in those areas without further interference from US airstrikes.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    And I’ve been saying the Israelis are afraid of the Iranian SRBM’s and haven’t, and won’t attack any Iranian or Hezbollah targets anywhere at all [not just syria] for fear of reprisal, I don’t believe the S-300 or 400’s are anything near close to the deterrent factor the Iranian SRBM’s are, I think they’re the real reason the Israelis have been reluctant to hit any Iranian or Hezbollah targets. As I’ve said, AA systems only take out a few jets, SRBM’s take out chunks of cities and their populations, possibly Israeli cities. The new buzz is ‘Iranian SRBM’s can now reach Europe LOL, the real story is the Iranian SRBM can hit anywhere and anything they like in Israel now FROM IRAN, not just Iraq/Syria/Lebanon. This new SF story may prove me wrong, but I’m not conceding just yet.

    I wonder if this could also be a desperate false flag attack by HTS, launch a few rockets from Israeli held Golan [they have access] into either Israel or Syria hoping for a response and retaliation from either party, It’s just the sort of thing they would do, and at the moment they would love any sort of intervention that might help postpone their recently orchestrated demise in Idlib [new astana agreement]. I wonder if the Israeli flyby’s recently were attempts to stop the rebels doing just that, they may have had intel concerning this very attack, HTS was, and probably still is funded and supported by the Israelis via the Saudi connection, they more than anyone else would know what HTS was up too, if they had found out about an attack like this I’m sure they would try to stop it, at the moment it’s not in their best interests to let this happen. I have to wait and see where the rockets were launched from and where they were heading, if there turns out to be no reason to believe it was the Israelis, then it can only be HTS doing the same thing they did in Aleppo a few days ago, anything they can to survive. Restarting a war that’s nearly over is a good way, especially if you were the only ones left out of the deal to end the fighting.
    No I’m not a Jew lover or sympathizer, or anti Jewish either, and I’m probably more of an anti Zionist than most ‘Jew haters’ are, even some of my fellow commentators, but I need more info before I’m going to be certain who did or didn’t cause the Syrian AA systems to go active and shoot something down. It’s not just ‘definitely them’ this time, now it’s a 50/50 for me, was it them or was it HTS? I have to wait to see. But I will say I think there’s a good chance it wasn’t the Israelis this time, I’m actually leaning towards it being a FF attack by HTS, the timing of this attack is what makes me think there may be more to it than just the normal reasons, which is always an Israeli attack against Iran or Hezbollah targets on Syrian territory, sometimes an attack on Syrian infrastructure and forces, and anyone else they feel like too, which makes them so very popular with SF readers, but maybe not this time, maybe this time for the first time ever the Israelis were attacking HTS to prevent an attack, AS MAD AS THAT SOUNDS. More info still needed.

    • Patriotic_White_American

      But they already killed Iranian soldiers, Iran admitted to 4 dead in the T4 strikes, but the actual number is in the hundreds.This figure includes hundreds of air strikes against positions in Syria.

      • Willing Conscience (The Truths

        You may be right but I’m still waiting for some more info. I have no idea about those photos of the downed objects, I can’t tell what they are, rockets from HTS or missiles from Israel. Still too hazy for me to be sure what just happened, if the circumstances were any different I would have already suspected it was definitely the Israelis, but as I said in my post, it’s now possibly just as likely to be HTS trying to initiate a false flag attack. When they find out what the objects actually were and let us know, we’ll all know for sure who it was.
        For hundreds of dead and hundreds of airstrikes there’s very little in the way of photo evidence so far to back it up, one of the most populated areas on earth with millions of mobile phones should mean thousands of pictures and videos already posted, 2 days later we’re still waiting for those.

    Israel is denying it fired on Syria?
    So it’s highly likely that Syria did intercept either Israeli cruise missiles, and or an Israeli plane.
    If it is a plane, and it’s an F35, Americas worst nightmare just came true.

    • John Whitehot

      my thought as well, although if it’s an aircraft it probably fell in Israel or in the occupied Golan Heights.

      The above is hinted by the fact that Israel firstly declared that “some projectile” fell in the Golan, and they then witheld any other statement, probably until they found whatever it was on the ground (if the “projectile” did fall on the Syrian side they would have to admit something more).

      The Syrians on their side, initially stated a plane was shot down, but being unable to prove it as it did not fall over Syria they chose to not push the narrative.

      I like how Syria behaved in this, they come out on top of Israel in regards to honesty.

      “If it is a plane, and it’s an F35, Americas worst nightmare just came true.”

      idk if it’s the US or Israels one.
