Israel’s Advanced Arrow System Blamed For Syrian Missile Breach

ILLUSTRATIVE IMAGE

Israel’s advanced Arrow anti-missile system failed to intercept a Soviet-made S-200 missile launched by Syria during the last exchange of fire between the two countries, Israeli sources revealed on April 22.

Earlier, Israel’s Defense Minister Benny Gantz acknowledged that the army’s multi-tiered air-defense network had failed to stop the Syrian missile. An investigation was also launched in Tel Aviv.

The Syrian Arab Air Defense Forces fired the missile at Israeli warplanes preparing to launch airstrikes on the outskirts of the Syrian capital, Damascus, early on April 22. The missile missed its target but went on to land nearly 40 km away from the Dimona nuclear reactor in southern Israel.

According to Israeli media, the Arrow system was activated to intercept the S-200 missile. However, it failed to stop the stray Syrian missile.

The Arrow 2 and 3 anti-missile systems were jointly developed and produced by Israel and the US. The project is run by IAI and Boeing directly under the control of the Israeli Defense Ministry and the US Missile Defense Agency.

In March of 2017, the Arrow system scored its first operational success when it intercepted a Syrian S-200 missile fired at an Israeli warplane. Back then, a senior Israeli officer said that the S-200 missile “behaved like a ballistic threat” with “an altitude, range and ballistic trajectory” that mimicked the Scud-class missiles the Arrow 2 interceptor was designed to kill.

The claims made by Israel back then were not verified by any independent source. The new incident rises some doubts about these claims.

The missile incident was a major blow to Israel’s multi-tiered air-defense network, which costed billions and more than 20 years of development.

Are you kidding me? one missile passed our defense systems and you all celebrating? mistakes happen and it’s best to learn from them. Now the IDF will put more batteries in that area, so thanks Syria.

P.S, from what I understood we shot only one interceptor after we saw that the Syrian missile is going to hit an open space so no damage to civilians or property. Ofcourse, if it had been shot on the civilian population or the reactor then we would have responded with more interceptors. That was not the case.

But, wouldn’t they burn?…Oh, duh.

Mars with a limited supply of oxygen.

You know with those schnozzes of theirs, they could suck up the oxygen supply from the surrounding planets. Better the solar colony.

You are on to something. The Azeris will be very happy if the Israelis help them liberate the Azerbaijani areas in Iran.

Ewan

Right after Iran liberates Palestine from you parasites

Free man

Nice joke. Will it be before or after they succeed in protecting their nuclear scientists, their generals and their nuclear facilities?

Not a fan of Israel

They’ve tried. Failed.

On a serious note I really do want you wiped off the map…

Well I would have been surprised if you didn’t, which is why exactly there are guys like me standing in your way. I am not a violent person on my daily life, I am actually a nice guy to most people I meet. But come a battle, and it’s a different story.
So stand in line, there are other Islamic terrorists that we need to deal with and it seems that with Bennet taking over, it’s just around the corner.

Hye

Im so scared khazar…

Bennett knows better than Nuttyyahoo, he’s a militaryman, that the terror group called IDF is no match for the Hezb, was , is and will never be. Go play with your Momma Fake Joo land thief.

How many were launched if one or two then it is not good situ for idf SAA did not launch 100 like Trump vs. Syria….

That depends, when a heavy rocket that is fired from Gaza is calculated to hit a civilian population, then we sometimes shoot 2 or even more interceptors just to make sure no Israelis will get hurt. Ofcourse it’s not economically, but lives are more important to us.
If you ask me? after Bibi is gone it will be a different story. When the IDF enters Gaza again, there will be only one goal and they know it.

LRcaptain

bibi yahoo keeps the corpse of the Palestinian state alive for personal gain

Not a fan of Israel

I say target one particular dwelling in Balfour St. That will be fun to watch on the Nightly News.

….and then Bibi’s own home, I’m sure the Syrians know where it is.

Ewan

There will be NO return TO Gaza as the IDF RAN from Gaza – They could not stomach the losses. You cowards deliberately target civilians by indiscriminate artillery shelling, but Hamas gave your best (Golani brigade) a hiding in 2014 by slaughtering a Golani commander in hand to hand combat. Bravest of the Brave.Go have a wetdream somewhere else

Ewan


When the IDF enters Gaza again, there will be only one goal and they know it.”- Yeah , and thats to call in Airsupport when you get served by Hamas. Bravest of the Brave. Even Benny knows they are the Bravest.

tzatz

Wimps that will belch their INTEL to their Israeli masters … lol

The next war in Gaza will be it’s end … 10’s of 1000’s DEAD and 100’s of 1000’s fleeing into Sinai …

Not a fan of Israel

Jewish lives are so important you put a weapons testing facility in the middle of an urban area….isn’t that using Israelis as HUMAN SHIELDS?

<>

That was not exactly right in an urban population area, after all no one was hurt. But I also don’t believe the news it was an accident, sounds fishy to me.

Not a fan of Israel

The “no-one was hurt” is more than just “fishy”.

HB_Norica

Israel, Russia, USA, Syria …. none of them have a missile defence system that’s 100% effective and they never will.

1. Hitting a bullet with a bullet is extremely difficult. Even with a known trajectory odds always VASTLY favour the attacker.

2. It’s easier to design a missile that can evade a missile than to design a missile to stop it. The advantage will ALWAYS favour the attacker.

4. People want to feel protected and if the average politician was good at math they wouldn’t be politicians … hence the main object of missile defence is to separate the taxpayer from his money.

Iron Dome vs Gaza Rockets

Ronnie&MargaretInDementia

Dude, it was an S200, thats 60 years old! I can run faster than that. Basically someone threw a dead dog over the wall and you couldn’t get a shot in. Iron dome is all bullshit, just like the yanks, when it comes to not even near peer enemy you’ve got no answer. Now imagine Iran with all their drones and missiles, yup, poopy pants time.

God, I’ve got leave, I’m busting a gut here. Poopy pants time…maybe The Donald can send them some ‘Depends’ as his latest gift.

Shia man

You still don’t get the message that’s only 1 missile and it was able to bypassing your defense systems that you were bragging about for the longest get the message you could get whipped out in seconds know your place and leave peacefully or get whipped clean off the face of the earth this is not a threat but a promise. You will get humiliated that’s the reward for the wicked.

<>

We’re not going anywhere. The difference between Iran and Syria is that if Iran was the one shooting the missile, then we would have responded in the same coin and you don’t want that.

Not a fan of Israel

Go ahead….I need a laugh.

“Uber Eats? Yeah….can I have a meat lover’s family pizza with extra bacon and anchovies, a big tub of caramel salted popcorn, a case of Millers Blood Orange and a dozen choctops, 6 peppermint and 6 choc chip, please.”

Uncle same won’t come on time to save them just like they never showed up in 2006 or in 2000 when the Jews were forced to leave their equipment behind and run away from Lebanon like cowards.

Yep. Public humiliation is almost worse than death.

only a few more batteries how about 10 or 12 that would be much better. bulk contracts cheaper prices. Create many jobs.

You shot down not a thing. The second s200 exploded it self in mid air and Israeli news admitted it. It was eight over Dimona. It was sent as a message.

tzatz

Huh? FAKE NEWS ALERT … lol

8 over Dimona … sounds like a hit movie … eh?

shylockracy

It was Kissinger who ordered Nixon to save the Rothschild neocolony in Palestine in Operation Nickel Grass in 1973, with Pentagon terrorists putting on IDF uniforms to push Syria back as the Soviets also pressured Damascus to withdraw. Something similar also happened when the US/SDF terrorsits came to rescue of ISIS in east Syria with brand new SDF uniforms for ISIS to change into. Terrorist Ziojew invincibility is a myth like the Holohoax.

Putin’s terrorist Ziocorporate globalists partners will soon be calling the Kremlin to negotiate ISISrael’s continued bombing of Syria without Syria shooting back at the Ziojew terrorists.

Supreme Blyat

Russia is not that friendly to Western military but for sure is friendly to Western economy.

Ewan

1973 war was contrived – a deal between Sadat,, Cross Dressing Golda Meier and Kissinger. Sadat was the big Arab traitor. He paid the ultimate price. Ariel Sharon’s “amazing pincer” move was part of the plan – Sadat deliberately allowed a massive 10;’s of Kilometer gap for Sharon to move in. Damascus was bombed – Sadat betrayed Hafez al Assad as well. Israel’s wars could NEVER have been won without US/UK help – They were P@ssies then, and even bigger P@ssies now as is evident in 2006. IDF were conceived as a terror group (Stern/Irgun) to murder and ethnically cleanse defenseless Palestinian women, Old people and children.
Read Israel Shamir’s account of 1973 war using Russian Ambassador to Egypt’s de classified notes:

I think you’re being too hard on the Idiot Defence Farce….they can win against unarmed civilians easily!

More Arab boasting of their incompetence … the Egyptians fought bravely but the Sharon gambit is a thing of LEGEND … still taught in military schools around the globe …

Arabs are thought of as lousy soldiers around the World … their SHAME and HUMILIATION everlasting … eh?

Sucks .. can that stain wash off your brown skin ?

tzatz

FAKE NEWS ALERT …. ARAB DISINFORMATION

The Syrians were too timid when they could have advanced into Israel but FAILED

They were beaten back and the IDF were only miles from Damascus when the Soviets saved Syria’s Assad Sr

Threatening a Nuclear response if the Jews / Zionists / Israelis didn’t STOP THRIR ADVANCE and submit to a cessation of war … eh?

Be afraid … you’ll be destroyed in the coming war

farbat

they are pathetic their “defense” is as much of a bluff as all about them is concerned and really zionists are nothing but a fat lie all together

tzatz

If so …

• the ‘mighty’ Iranian IRGC hasn’t fired back once for damage done to them in Syria

• the ‘mighty’ Iranian IRGC has yet to attack Israel for any attacks / killings going on in Iran by the Mossad

The ‘mighty’ IRGC must know something you don’t … eh?

The ‘mighty’ IRGC are paper tigers … good enough against Arabs … but afraid of the Jews / Zionists / Israelis for good reason

The Jews / Zionists / Israelis will destroy Iran and their Nuclear Program as soon as Yossi knows they’re close to a breakout … eh?

DeathToPutin+CommieLukashenko

Syria can only dream to have air defence remotely close to what Israel has.

BMWA1

There is another name for such malevolent dreams…actually Syria does a great job like in the two mass cruise missile attacks / Fiascos in 17 and 18 in Trump regime times.

Tommy Jensen

Planned fiascos. Trump mostly bombed empty buildings or deserts to keep his polls raised.
Liberals prefer Biden and Obama who bomb real market places, weddings and funerals. More fat social welfare and Aid programmes to Liberals.

Oliver Eitel

no he didn’t they tried to attack an air field, Russia jammed the incomming missiels for a testing all missed target….then the second wave the Russians activated their emp device just 20-15 sec before impact, to see how much it would still block and lead a stray off target…..if the device would be just activated close before impact…as the emp device can be traced back by sensitive radar tenology or spy planes….and a ballistic missile without gps or artillerie strike could hit it….thats why active Radars and this emp device are just turned on when necessary to keep them undetected for long as possible…the emp device was so strong that france ships could not even launch their missiles….

Idiot. The Syrians have now had a LOT of battlefield experience shooting down Israeli missiles and a few IAF jets as well.

Israel’s “sophisticated 4-tier defense” is a public joke.

A tattoo of the Assad’s on your cheeks? lol

How many rockets from Gaza land on Israelis … As a percentage?

A. 100%

B. 75%

C. 50%

D. 25%

E. 1%

F. None of the above

“S-200 missile “behaved like a ballistic threat” with “an altitude, range and ballistic trajectory””
Did the IDF just discover gravity?
Surprise, any unpowered, not maneuvering object launched in a gravitational field will have a ballistic trajectory… Easily predictable. Even a throwed stone, or an arrow (pun intended).
As for the “advanced” pindo-jewish junk, it seems to be a proud successor to the pindo Patriot, you know the one that managed to actually not shoot down any SCUD, way back 30 years ago, despite the marketing press.

It wasn’t that long ago Aritz Shitva revealed in an article a secret Israeli technology…..the Wind Tunnel.

Putin should offer the US and Israel the S300. US crap doesn’t seem to work. Ruskies are light years ahead of anyone else in missile and Rocket tech

I believe the Iranians have caught up to Russia……..

Ever the Iranian backer … for a learned scholar … you sound like f/kn Iranian mullah … eh abbas?

Peter Jennings

The Patriot missile got the same silent treatment on statistics and lots of propaganda. It’s good for sales, thinking they will probably never be used anyway. Saddam’s Scuds busted that sales fantasy.

Maybe the isreali apartheid regime should look at the Boeing parts as we all know they love to cut corners to maximise profit.

Not a fan of Israel

“Earlier, Israel’s Defense Minister Benny Gantz that the army’s multi-tiered air-defense network had failed to stop the Syrian missile.

An investigation was also launched in Tel Aviv.”

….and promptly shot down by an ageing S-200 missile!
