Israel Confirms It Jets Came Under Fire From Russian S-300 System While Attacking Syria

On July 26, Israel’s Defense Minister Benny Gantz confirmed that the Russian military opened fire at Israeli fighter jets in May from an S-300 long-range air-defense system, at the end of an aerial attack that targeted a military research complex near the town of Masyaf in northwestern Syria.

The unprecedented incident was first reported by Israel’s Channel 13 news just a week after the attack, which took place on May 13.

“It was a one-off incident,” Gantz told a conference hosted by Channel 13, when asked to confirm the report. The Russian launch happened when the aircraft “were no longer around”, he said.

“Our jets weren’t even in the area,” Gantz added, confirming the original report which claimed the S-300 radar did not lock onto the Israeli fighters jets which were leaving the area, and thus did not pose a serious threat to the pilots.

Gants said that Israel’s coordination with Russia over Syria is “a situation that is stable right now”. However, he noted that Israel is always reviewing the incident.

The Israeli attack claimed the lives of five people, including three service members of Syria’s air defense forces, and wounded at least seven others.

Syria received three S-300PMU2 air-defense systems from Russia after the downing of a Russian Il-20 intelligence aircraft by Syrian air defense forces which were responding to an Israeli attack over Syrian airspace in September 2018. Russia blamed Israel for the incident.

In its report, Channel 13 argued that Syria’s S-300 systems are operated by the Russian military and cannot be fired without its approval.

The disclosure by Gantz came amid tensions between Israel and Russia. Tel Aviv insists on condemning the Russian special military operation in Ukraine, while Moscow is taking steps to stop the work of the Jewish Agency on its territory.

It’s nonsensical for Israel to say that the Syrians could not operate the system themselves, seeing as how Syria has operated the previous air defence systems since the 1960s. The Turks have never had an air defence system that worked before they bought the S400, is Israel saying that the Turks also require Russians to operate that system?

If Russia wanted to take down an Israeli aircraft, they would use their own S400 which they have at their bases in Syria and that would have been that. More girly bit Ching from the West.

The idea is that the defense system is operated and controlled by Russia, not that the Syrians are too incompetent to use it.

Rightiswrong

Russia operates the S400, while the Syrians were given S300. I have no doubt that Russia has influence and control over the Syrian system, but it is simply ludicrous to suggest that Syrian troops would not be allowed to operate it.

Otherwise, Russia would have sent more S400s, rather than expect their own troops to operate a lesser system. While Syria are not going to accept a system that their own troops never get experience of using.

Russia does not treat it’s allies like the US does, in return they get full co-operation with their allies. Now Israel realises that Syria can indeed track and target IDF aircraft without Russian personnel.

And that hurts the desert people’s confidence so much, they still try to belittle their foes.

It is not true…s300 pmu2 is able to strike israel aircraft but you must lunch into 300km range not over. Russian mimitary wanted only advice Israel…

Ioan

Why is it that Israel can bomb other countries with impunity while Russia defending the ethnic Russians in what was previously Russian territory are sanctioned by the whole Western world? Is it because the families of banking parasites who orchestrated every single war and conflict for the past few hundred years are the masters of the political class in the West?

it’s called the British Empire, only a 21st century version called “Global Britain.” If one investigates this they will discover the fascistic, malthusian Great Reset and the currently implemented “Green New Deal” which is what NATO’s war in Ukraine is predicated upon. It’s the Zeusians last ditch attempt to depopulate this planet from 7 billion to less than 1 billion by any means necessary.

So tell us again why Russia hasn’t launched a hypersonic missile (or two) into Haifa for all the Russian deaths in Syria and now Ukraine?…

When does Russia provide a granite wall with all the names of Russian servicemen killed and missing in action inside Syria since 2015?!!!…

very few Russian casualties in Syria—

Matt

Very Few?… Or NONE???…

Why isn’t there a memorial to the SU-24 pilots that “bought it” from a “Turkish F-16”?… Or perhaps the Russian EW crew that paid the price because I$rael was using commercial airliners as “cover”?…

If you are going to protect a client “sovereign state” that you have a military base in then why wouldn’t you want to know the names of ALL those men and women who sacrificed their lives to protect that State -not to mention all the Syrian deaths since 2015 alone that could have been avoided had Russia provided the SA-400s instead of Turkey!???

If there is NO accountability in those sacrifices, which side is ANY different than the other?… And how do you make it STOP if you maintain your active membership in a Club that murders your own countrymen (https://www.vbirstein.com/the-convenient-death-of-vitaly-churkin/) (https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-35781333)!?….

Excuse me for being candid Yuri… But if you are Russian you sound an awful lot like an Anglo-Zi0ni$t!?…

Have you considered that when you join a military death becomes an occupational hazard?

NATO's PROXYTUTE

S-300 defence system in Syria are owned and operated by Russian military who decides on its own when to use it, and the firing linked to Israeli raid was not to hit IDF jet but just a warning to express its displeasure over Israel’s mischief. On the other hand, Turkey who purchased S-400s is entirely a different story having full control and operation of the system allowing them to shoot anything deemed hostile to its interest.

Israel better think real hard as next time their attack planes might not return to their base. Israel has no right to violate neither the sovereign airspace nor th3 territory of Syria. Israel uses the excuse of “self defense” against an enemy they helped create then act like terrorists themselves.

Yet it didn’t hit the jet. That shows that the S-300 isn’t as good as we have been told or that Russia is just putting on a show for all of us.

SF for the love of god stop, “Israel’s Channel 13 news”.

The IDF or Russia or SAA would say so and the fact none of them did should tell you it most likely didn’t happen.

Israel is lying as usual. The Syrian Air Defense troops are more likely to have fired off a missile. I am also under the impression that Russia is using the S-400 systems around their airbases in Syria right now. It is a bummer that the Syrian’s didn’t blow the Israel threat out of the sky.

I fear that Russia is too restrained. Still, let Israel see that as their LAST warning. If this occurs at another time, Russia must down the jets. Fence sitters have no friends.

Israel is supporting the nazi-fascist government of Ukraine. Russia must use S-300 to shut down Israel planes, not just to scare them.
