Israel Shots Down Russian-Made Drone With Patriot Missile Over Golan Heights

On November 11, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) announced that it shot down an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) over the Golan demilitarized zone between Israel and Syria. The IDF said that it targeted the UAV with a MIM-104 Patriot surface-to-air missile system.

A video, which was published on twitter by a Syrian opposition activist, showed that several Patriot missiles were fired against the UAV.

Meanwhile, Reuters revealed that the UAV was Russian-made. Syrian pro-government sources confirmed the Reuters report and said that the UAV was an Orlan-10 of the Syrian Air Force.

On July 17, the Israel army fired three Patriot missiles against an unspecified UAV over the Golan Heights. However, none of the missiles hit the UAV that was able to go back to the Syria airspace. Llater it was revealed that it was a Russian-made UAV.

The situation in the Golan highest will likely clam down in the upcoming hours, as Israel does not respond usually to this kind of violations, especially that it shoot down the UAV.

      American citizens are being robbed because , bribery is legal, Israel has a huge Lobbyist force, forever bribing our elected officials.

        This is merely one of lobbies and they state that they are American not foreign ( and whats worse, such statement was defended in front of court ). All in all, Americans are being shit on by Israelis especially since USS Liberty accident.

        Truth is that America is owned by Israel who is their Master. This reminds me of some quotes from Benjamin Franklin.

        • You can call me Al

          What if, both the US and Israel were owned and they are both vassal states ?.

          • Don Machiavelli

            Interesting view but bmo it is highly unlikely because of many factors.

            For example…

            It was only with Lyndon Johnson in power that there was pro-Israeli president in cabinet in the USA. Even so, Israeli lobbyists had to ‘work their arses up’ to cover up USS Liberty.
            That case points out differences and subject of American support was done through out by Norman Finkelstein ( case of American Jewry support for Israel which was non existent in early 60s ) and also by other authors.

            That is even more interesting but problem with it is that sources with which one could back such claim are not credible. Many of those ‘sources’ are essentially reliant on other conspiracy theories. For example, period when, allegedly, United States FOR America became United States OF America in favor of bankers as compensation for independence etc. What do you have in mind about it? I have dismissed every single of those theories but am always open for credible information, thanks.

          The situation with lobbying is quite normal. Large national/religious minorities/majorities can often influence on the foreign policy of the mother state. Of course that the US population with Italians and Albanians or Irish rots will always lobbying for the cause of their roots state if being in trouble or in favour of it’s interests.

            Why the certain states had implemented and accepted “double vote” principle?
            It’s a nationalistic, right party populist methodology to assure power with manipulating with population which is not really informed about anything in it’s bellowed country of “all of them”. The Jews around a world have some specific, but 90% is equal methodology of motherland right wingers for other spread ethnicity.
            Many thanks for posting Norman Finkelstein analyses regarding to that!

          • Don Machiavelli

            I have not gone deep into subject to be able to make argument about double vote.
            Maybe by looking at list of countries with such agreements would surely reveal more info.
            That will get on my ‘to do’ list in near future as it surely is relevant to my current research. Mr. Finkelstein is highly respected scholar i am glad you appreciate his work :)

          Year 2…… US foreign aid to Israeli = xx billion + y billion.

          Year 2 ….. Israel to US political cronies + lobbyists = (xx billion + y billion)- 10% admin charge.

          and so on and so on….. and as you say all of it US taxpayer’s money.

            The US MIC has never prized efficiency or bang for the buck. I like the new Oshkosh trucks but they are insanely expensive. So a 400k+ vehicle to replace a 100k+ Hummer to replace a $10k Jeep.

        • You can call me Al

          Thank God, I read the whole statement; after “The US MIC is the most efficient method ever devised by man” – I had my fingers at the keyboard.

          But you are so right and it really is that simple.

        • Nod

          Not the most efficient by far. Most efficient is the monetary system itself.

          “The Government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and credits needed to satisfy the spending power of the Government and the buying power of consumers. By the adoption of these principles, the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity.” -Abraham Lincoln

          “Until the control of the issue of currency and credit is restored to government and recognized as its most conspicuous and sacred responsibility, all talks of the sovereignty of Parliament and of democracy is idle and futile… Once a nation parts with the control of its credit, it matters not who makes the laws….Usury once in control will wreck the nation.”
          William Lyon MacKenzie King, former Prime Minister of Canada

          “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks…will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered…. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.” – Thomas Jefferson in the debate over the Re-charter of the Bank Bill (1809)

          “Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain slaves of the Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits.”

          Britain.

    Syria should buy more and send everyday in exchange for three Patriot missiles . I am sure Israel will give up as each Patriot costs more than the UAV

    Now who is correct. Was it shot down?

      “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. … We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. … In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons … who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”

      There is no IDF and also no SAA between the A (ceasefire line = positions to which the IDF has withdrawn in the 1974 war) and B- line (ceasefire line on the Syrian side); The IDF go as far as their “technical fence” (A-line). Beyond those lines are the demilitarisation zones (DMZ), where limited types of arms and forces allowed (defensive). From the A-line to the border of the “demilitarised zone” on the Israeli side, which runs approximately along the Jordan Valley and the east side of lake Galilee, it’s about 20km at best. A Patriot missile can easily go much further than that. Also it might well be that Patriot missiles are allowed within the DMZ as they are defensive weapons.

    • Sinbad2

      A Patriot missile costs between US$2-3 million, so they spent at least 6 million to probably miss a less than half million dollar drone.
      Unless Israel produces pics of the crashed drone, they missed it.

          “In short, Really Existing Capitalist Democracy is very remote from the soaring rhetoric about democracy. But there is another version of democracy. Actually it’s the standard doctrine of progressive, contemporary democratic theory. So I’ll give some illustrative quotes from leading figures – incidentally not figures on the right. These are all good Woodrow Wilson-FDR-Kennedy liberals, mainstream ones in fact. So according to this version of democracy, “the public are ignorant and meddlesome outsiders. They have to be put in their place. Decisions must be in the hands of an intelligent minority of responsible men, who have to be protected from the trampling and roar of the bewildered herd”. The herd has a function, as it’s called. They’re supposed to lend their weight every few years, to a choice among the responsible men. But apart from that, their function is to be “spectators, not participants in action” – and it’s for their own good. Because as the founder of liberal political science pointed out, we should not succumb to “democratic dogmatisms about people being the best judges of their own interest”. They’re not. We’re the best judges, so it would be irresponsible to let them make choices just as it would be irresponsible to let a three-year-old run into the street. Attitudes and opinions therefore have to be controlled for the benefit of those you are controlling. It’s necessary to “regiment their minds”. It’s necessary also to discipline the institutions responsible for the “indoctrination of the young.” All quotes, incidentally. And if we can do this, we might be able to get back to the good old days when “Truman had been able to govern the country with the cooperation of a relatively small number of Wall Street lawyers and bankers.” This is all from icons of the liberal establishment, the leading progressive democratic theorists. Some of you may recognize some of the quotes.”

    Israel disavows claims of Russian origin of downed ‘Syrian spy drone’

    Israeli military spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Jonathan Conricus confirmed that a drone downed by Israel over the Golan Heights on Saturday belonged to Syrian government forces, but disavowed claims that the aircraft was manufactured in Russia. “We have determined that it belonged to the Syrian regime. Earlier I said that this is a Russian-made UAV [unmanned aerial vehicle], but additional checks do not allow this to be asserted,” he told RIA Novosti.
