According to sources supporting militant groups in Syria, the Israel istrike targeted a Syrian Army positions on Tell Shaer in the province of Quneitra. The strike reportedly killed at least one soldier.

Syrian state media confirmed that one of its soldiers was killed in the Israeli retaliatory strike and a second was injured. A military vehicle was also said damaged in the attack.

UPDATE: The destroyed “systeM supposedly was a Shilka self-propelled gun.

    If true, it’s a step in the right direction. But if IAF aircraft intruding on Syrian territory are going to be fired on, they should be hit and taken down as part of clearing the baby rapers off of stolen land.

    • White_American_Patriot

      What’s true is a missile hitting Syrian targets like within the range of the S400 fail

          “There is a very apparent Semitic influence in the press. They are trying
          to do two things: First, implement Communism, and second, see that all
          business men of German ancestry and non-Jewish antecedents are thrown
          out of their jobs. They have utterly lost the Anglo-Saxon conception of
          justice and feel that a man can be kicked out because somebody else says
          he is a Nazi. They were evidently quite shocked when I told them I
          would kick nobody out without the successful proof of guilt before a
          court of law.”(General George S Patton)

        S-300 and S-400 have proven over and over again to be the biggest joke since the Syrian Special Forces or the Russkie Navy :-}

        • viktor ziv

          SAA uses S-200 to shoot down IAF planes, S-300 are ready for F-35, as for S-400 SAA doesn’t operate those.

    The Syrian Army fights better then the Israeli army.
    But the Israeli air power defeats anything in the air department in Syria.
    Their exist no air defense in Syria that is of any threat or consequence to Israel.
    If Putin wanted, he could ship down Russia’s new laser defense systems for trials.

      If the SADF wasn’t effective, the baby rapers and NATO wouldn’t be staying out of Syrian airspace.

      • White_American_Patriot

        Israel is launching the weapons outside the range of the airspace genius, thus proving the impotency and range limitations of the Russian systems

        Israel won again

        • RichardD

          All of Israel is within the range of the SAA and has been for decades.

    • Rhodium 10

      SAA are not a Qualified armed forces…sofisticate system are useless under hands of SAA officers…thats why Israel dont want Irani army/Hezbollah or IRGC near its border and even less they could get some air defense system like Pantsir or Buk M2…..

      • d’Artagnan

        Almost all Arab regular armies are not very professional despite look very big and well armed on paper. The Iraqis had 10:1 advantage against post revolutionary depleted and sanction Iran in 1980 and still lost. The Saudis have over $2 trillion worth of the most sophisticated western weaponry since 1960’s but lost to khat chewing Zaidi Shia kids in sandals. The very nepotistic, sectarian and tribal nature of Arab militaries sets them up for failure. Hezbollah on the other hand is a close knit homogeneous Shia political movement with very a very educated leadership cadre. In the same manner the Iranian IRGC is more cohesive, motivated and dedicated than the regular military (Artesh) which is mostly conscripts.

      • Philippe Bracq

        Most systems are too difficult and too sophisticated for US soldiers to manage.

      Syria needs better air forces and better man power Near the Golan Heights, which should be the largest base/Underground and above ground.

      • Joe Dickson

        You really think Assad can do anything to Israel? The IDF could take Damascus in a couple days.

        • Rhodium 10

          Without Hezbollah IDF take Damascus in one day…with Hezbollah in a couple of days IDF would have to flee from there!

        • Concrete Mike

          Not a chance, theres 100000 missiles pointed at israel, maintaining the status quo is the only way to survive.

          Israel knows that, that5s why they have been using standoff weapons, firingn from lebanese airspace, using civilian aircraft as cover. If Israel was un such a strong.position they could fly.over syria at will, wich they dont. A few cruise missile fired behind a civilian airplane in lebanon is not a show of strength, not at all.

          Hows the weather in south carolina? Can you please stop sending rain north id like to go golfing soon!! Ool

      • Dontlietome

        Syria needs a better ally than Russia………….. sadly that is the truth of the matter. If the great Vlad was not hiding behind “Geopolitical Greed”, he would station an in-depth AA network around Damascus, use the Spetznaz to wipe out all pockets of ISIS along the Is/Sy border, seal it, declare the Golan as Russian territory, give the Moishes 24 hours to vacate, and then create a massive airbase on the plateau. Thereafter he would fly suppression over Israel and only allow them to fly/train over water.

    This sounds like the typical kind of lie that Israel specializes in.

    • Rhodium 10

      Netanyahu has told that the Israeli army ( not IAF)..attacked in GH an AD in retalion of fire AD vs IAF aircraft inside israeli territory…so surely used ground to ground missile Spike NLOS ( 25km range)..

      • goingbrokes

        My thought exactly.

    • Rhodium 10

      IDF destroyed a Shilka vehicle of the 121 brigade and killed a young Lieutenant officer from Qaryateen a Christian city in Homs..he survived the ISIS offensive in that symbolic small city…and now Jews have killed him!..as you can see wahabi terrorist and zionist terrorist both playing in the same team!

    • White_American_Patriot

      It has multiple S300’s and a Russian S400 with a claimed range of 300 miles. Both systems which have been humiliated by the old F16

      • Rhodium 10

        SAA dont use S-300 until they defeat terrorism in Syria!..if SAA use S-300..Israeli jets will be destroyed but Israeli army will invade parts of Syria as SAA is a fake army like all arabs armies!..only Hezbollah and Iran have ability to fight israel as we have seen in lebanon 2006!..thast why Israel dont want IRGC&Hezbollah near its borders!

        • White_American_Patriot

          Israel killed Jihad Mugniyeh and IRGC general along with 6 other hezbollah at Mazraat Amal. Bibi scares Nasrallah and Iran

            Hezbollah killed also 6 israeli soldiers( included a captain death and gen severy wounded) in 2 ATGM&IED attacks in lebanon in retalion..then Israel attacked a UN base killing one Spanish soldier!

          • White_American_Patriot

        If the US could have this technology they would. Instead they’ve wasted it on senseless wars for the vermin Jew. There’s no sense giving it to the Jew world order miscreants on a silver platter to reverse engineer when the filthy Jews are getting their butts kicked every day as their pet terrorists die by the hundreds. And they cower in fear of the SADF by staying out of Syrian airspace.

        • White_American_Patriot

          Why would they waste money on an inferior system? Syria has no air defense, Israel destroys Pantsirs like crushing bugs, and the S400 is a bucket of rust

          • RichardD

            Out of 1,000 SADF air defense systems, 99% are undamaged by the IAF. That’s why the baby rapers are losing the war.

          • White_American_Patriot

            And not a single one has killed an Israeli pilot. But SAA has taken hundreds of casualties from the US and Israel

            Pathetic lol

          • Luke Hemmming

            The s400 would certainly make scrap metal out of any Israeli plane BUT as the rest of us know except obviously you, Russia is not about to escalate a war with Israel. Diplomacy is the key word here. Something your people lack. Oil and arms deals are part of it too. But not escalating a already knife edge conflict is what the game is all about. Elementary my dear Watson, elementary.

          • White_American_Patriot

            If Russians had such strong weapons, why would they care about escalation?

            They don’t and Israel kicked their ass multiple times already

          • Luke Hemmming

            Why? Because a peaceful situation buying oil and arms making money is better than starting a war, no one buying anything and millions of lives been destroyed which means your customer base is been dwindled. Elementary my dear Watson, elementary.

          • White_American_Patriot

            Israel and Turkey shot down Russians jets and laughed lol

          • Luke Hemmming

            Israel got their asses kicked by Lebanon and laughed too lol

            Russians today are not war mongering pigs like usa and israel are today.

            They do care about escalation because they still remember the price they paid in WW2, so for now cool it adolf.

            What is it about Israel is losing the war that you don’t understand or want accept?

      • Concrete Mike

    • d’Artagnan

      It was an old ZSU-23 mm quad (aka Shilka, normally used in ground role against terrorists) and a soldier was killed. Not a major achievement by any standard, but Syria should retaliate in a commensurate manner. It is high time.

      But lots of ground has been gained by the Syrian government coalition. It’s the difference between winning a war and being a nuisance. The evil Jew’s Yinon plan is being defeated every day.

        • RichardD

          What you can prove and what you pathologically lie about are two different things. No rational analyst would characterize the Syrian government coalition’s steam rolling the Jew world order terrorists for years as losing.

          The IDF got hit 10 times last year in the Golan, and now Golan airspace is becoming unsafe for the IAF as well.

        • RichardD
          • White_American_Patriot

            A less than 1% interception rate, pitiful performance by Russian air defense. Not even a single Israeli had died. Embarrassing.

          • RichardD

            Dozens, if not hundreds of Israeli missiles have been intercepted. The IAF and NATO have been backed out of Syrian airspace by the SADF as Syria is indisputably winning the war. You can’t lie your way around these facts.

          Are you blind or something? Even blinds know today that Syria is getting their parts back from ISIS on daily bases. Once ISIS is completely defeated, Golan Heights is next. Then you will understand that ISIS was basically a buffer created by Israel to protect itself.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    Nobody is debating that the Syrian government coalition ground forces out gun the Kurds and NATO ground forces. Assuming that they can advance with air cover and without getting hit by US air strikes of the type that have occurred throughout the war.

    The Russians aren’t willing to provide air cover for an advance on SDF held territory at this time, and the Syrian air force is no match for NATO on it’s own. NATO ground supplies and air cover supporting the SDF is unlikely to come from Turkey. That leaves only Iraq allowing NATO, primarily US, supplies and air support for the SDF.

    If Syrian government coalition ground forces could advance with air cover and without getting hit with air strikes to shut down the SDF partition project. They would have done it already.

    The Syrian government coalition’s air power deficit can be addressed in one or two ways. By putting the equipment in place to expand the no fly zone over SDF held areas, and or getting Iraq to stop supporting the partition project by allowing NATO to use it’s land and airspace in support of the partition project.

    What I think happened was israel fires a small missile from over from Lebanon and Syria targeted an israeli F-16 flying over the Golan in retaliation.

    Now this probably was intended to miss a warning from Putin.

    Everyone across the right / left divide opposing israel has found agreement in that Trump is not going to engage he wants to maintain the bluster of easy to swallow titbits for his audience at home and abroad.

    Personally I think Trump’s rattled , watch if he backs down on Huawei and further goes lower down on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

        I said in Dec. 2016 that Henery Kissinger was the man, turned out I was righ, the reason I said that was because the vast majority of folks in the US and isreal believe that the US war machine is unassailable, all US Generals and Admirals know differently, but the idea is to keep the folks believing it.

        As soon as they stop the good folks will be very sad and could easily become depressed, this is what has to be avoided at all costs, so the Iranians and DPRK naturally have to act frightened to avoid a psychological breakdowns in the US.
