No Surprises: US-Made ‘Smart Bomb’ Was Used By Israel To Murder Civilians In Syria’s Hama

Support SouthFront

A US-made “smart bomb” was apparently used in the Israeli airstrikes that claimed the lives of an entire family in Syria’s Hama.

The family including a father, a mother and two children were killed in the airstrikes, which targeted the western outskirts of Hama city early on January 22. The attack injured at least four other civilians.

The Syrian Arab News Agency shared a photo showing the remains of the projectile which struck the victims’ house. One of the pieces seen in the agency’s photo appears to be identical to a wing of the US-made GBU-39 Small Diameter Bomb (SDB).

No Surprises: US-Made ‘Smart Bomb’ Was Used By Israel To Murder Civilians In Syria’s Hama

On the left remains from the January 22, 2021, strike on Hama, on the right remains from the March 27, 2019, strike on Aleppo.

The GBU-39, which was first introduced by Boeing in 2006, is a precision-guided glide bomb with a range of 110km. The bomb uses the inertial navigation system, INS, and GPS to hit static targets with a high accuracy.

The Israeli Air Force is one of the main operators of the GBU-39. These bombs were used in many Israeli strikes on Syria over the last few years.

Israeli attacks on Syria have claimed the lives of multiple civilians since 2015. The international community is yet to hold Israel accountable. To this day, Tel Aviv continues to ignore reports of civilian casualties in its attacks on Syria. On the other side, Damascus is yet to respond.

SAA anti-missile landed on this family …. the hapless SAA aren’t up to snuff

The IAF would have destroyed the city of Hama if they had wanted … hello?

dont lie to yourself dude you can clearly see a GBU-39 hit the building thats a fact stuff like this happens all the time in war you cant avoid it.

tzatz

Nothing of the sort …

IF the IAF wanted to hit Syrians 1000’s would have died … hello?

If this was an error … I cannot judge … Syrians on the ground could have staged what you purport to know as fact

I DO NOT trust anything coming out of a Police State WITHOUT a free press

NITRAM28

the blast damage and bomb fragmets indicate it is infact a GBU-39.
Also ofc they did not directly target civilians its of no use to waste a GBU-39 or any other bomb or missile on a useless civilian target.

tzatz

I’m not swallowing Syrian propaganda …

The deaths may have been ‘collateral damage’ but there’s NO WAY of knowing ….

Syria got their headline spread across the World …. that was important for them …. to show Israeli perfidy

I’m not buying ….

next

NITRAM28

you can’t fake that type of blast damage…..like it or not that is infact a GBU-39 strike ofc i dont expect it to be intentional but its a fact mistakes happen and this mistake cost the IDF a propaganda loss.

Israel only attack SAA!…they fear to attack Hezbollah&Iran bases in lebanon…and when launch attack in Syria IAF do it vs SAA not Iranians!..even in that past airstrike in Deir ezzor….they only attacked SAA!..Why? because they know that Assad dont retaliate as Syrian armed forces are 90% useless…

Israel fear to attack Iran….they attack only SAA while western propagande say that Israel have attacked Iranians militia!…Israel is not stupid…they know that SAA cannot do anything vs israel because is a useless&incompetent army…but Iran can lauch 300 missile vs Israel at 10 per day during one month…many days IAD will have luck…but another days some missile with 500kg explosive can hit target with accuracy inside Tel Aviv..and Israel only just look

We’ve killed many Hezbo rats in Syria, no one is scared of them.

Rhodium 10

You have killed some of them along 7 years and Hezbollah have retaliate…I remember 2 captains killed and 8 wounded by ATGM…also an Israeli general badly wounded by IED….also 3 IDF soldiers wounded by ATGM….Israeli troops have left some lebanon bases and do no patrol to avoid a revenge for a Hezbollah fighter…meanwhile IRGC and Hezbollah continue deploying troops and weapons in Syria while Israel cannot avoid it!

farbat

the zionists think that they are safe but we will burn them up soon enough and if they enter lebanon or syria at that stage they will be entirely done XD

farbat

some lebanese doctor i believe of history said it in an interview years ago that we muslims arent waiting and doing nothing because what we are doing is to make sure that the next war against the jews will be the last they will ever fight which means we will pretty much cause extinction level loss on them and we are counting our losses meanwhile and have a huge list to put forward if anyone want our justification at the end

Rhodium 10

Ask to palestinian..every day they attack israel despite the strong response…

farbat

most of all the levite and cohen will have to be completely extinct in the next war so that the endless child sacrificing stops

farbat

they better should know that they arent any safer in any war in the usa than they are in west asia

Rhodium 10

USA should worry about their supply trucks…everyday many of them are being destroyed by IED in Iraq

Cromwell

So why haven’t you invaded southern Lebanon again since you had your balls fried big mouth?

<>

Who said we won’t? don’t you follow my posts? let’s see if they hurt any IDF troops at the border. If nothing happens then we won’t enter.

Garga

The least you could do is to show sympathy for this family killed by your regime and child-killer thugs attack.
Then proceed to blame the victim, but first show you have left a shred of decency and humanity.

<>

I feel sorry for them garga, I have no doubt we did not intent to hit them and they were at the wrong place and the wrong time. But, SF always likes to claim we target civilian on purpose, which is not the case. From personal experience, Hezbollah and Hamas are doing the same in Lebanon and Gaza, we had to operate very carefully in order not to hit unarmed civilians.

Garga

You don’t seem to be sorry at all, otherwise it was the first thing you’d say or at least you’d write it somewhere in your comment. I’m not judging you, you are what you are.

They were not at the wrong place and wrong time, they were sleeping in their residence in a country which you have no business to temper with. It’s a separate country and one that no attack against your regime originated from for half a century. The blame is firmly on the one who ordered the attack and the idiot who guided the bomb.
Apparently you didn’t operate carefully enough, proven by growing number if civilians killed by your regime.

I told you before, every one of these attacks and their innocent victims are written in red in your regime’s ledger.

PS. And don’t tell me your child-killer armed force is attacking Syria because they let in Iran. We have a stronger presence in Lebanon and the strongest in Iran, why don’t you attack us in Lebanon or directly if we are such a threat to you? Is it perhaps because you know it’s all bull$#it, your real target is SAA and if you attack us anywhere, you’ll get a response the like of which you won’t see from SAA?

<>

I am usually a very direct person, so perhaps I should have said I’m sorry in the opening of my comment. it’s just the way I talk or write, so my apologize. I say it again, I’m sorry they were killed.

Regarding your presence in Syria or Lebanon, you can claim you have all the right to be there. So what? should we just accept it and do nothing? we have battle plans for both Syria and Lebanon, does it mean we should execute them? if we do, then believe me Garga we can fight on both fronts and target the SAA and Hezbollah if and when we decide to. That is not the point.

Why reach that situation? because your mullahs decide to get closer to us and arm the Shia groups to operate in Southern Syria? no ISIS there as far as I can see.

Leave this area to avoid any further confrontation, if you don’t, things will escalate. You don’t have the means the start a war against Israel from Syria or Lebano, so why do it? their blood is on your hands, not ours.

Garga

Don’t apologize to me, who am I in this equation?

I have to find a way to bring you into Iran for a couple of weeks and put a distance between you and they daily doze of bull$hit you read/hear from your media and politicians about Iran to open your eyes.

<>

I hear and read alot of bullshit here it’s true, mostly coming from Bibi. But I am not a mindless Zombie, I can think for my own. Just answer me, why do you arm proxies in Gaza and Lebanon against Israel? what good comes out of it? so more iSraelis would die in terror attacks? so more Gazans or Lebanese would die in retaliation? how come you don’t see that what your IRGC officers are doing outside Iran, eventually makes more suffering for the people they claim to help?

I have never said we are perfect, I know we are far from it. But I would do whatever I can to save Israeli lives from your Shia terrorisitc proxies, giving my heart body and soul to keep my family and country safe. I know you would have done the same.

Garga

I answer you as clearly as I can, since it’s not a simple situation and it’s not just against Israel.

We support them partly because it’s the moral thing to do. After the crimes your “army” committed against Shi’as and Palestinians.

There is also a strategic reason.

We came under foreign attack after 1979 revolution and when the country was still in chaos. This attack came from Saddam’s Iraq who was backed by both western block and eastern block while we were alone, Americans saboutaged as much military hardware as they could before they leave. This 8-years-long war INSIDE our soil caused a lot of destruction and not only prevented our progress, it pushed us back for a decade or two. When the war finished, we had a battered army while Saddam’s army was even stronger and better armed than when the war started. The reason the war finished was the US directly got involved and shoot down our civilian airliner.

This destruction and the present and real danger of a US attack made our leaders to rethink their strategy, so to prevent a future war and more destruction, we had to push the front lines as far as possible from our actual geopolitical borders. In other words, by pushing the frontier towards Israel, Iran successfully managed to stop an attack from US so far. So, this is another reason.

Third reason is, when Saddam, furious from the his setbacks in the front lines started to use chemical bombs and missiles on our cities. Not a peep from any humanrights-loving country and we had no defence or means to retaliate against such attacks. Qaddafi sold us 20 SCUD missiles and Syria sent its experts to train ours. We fired back a few missiles, hit a refinery, an airbase, an Istikhbarat HQ but when a missile (which was so inaccurate) hit a residential area in Baghdad, Ayatollah Khomeini ordered to stop firing those missiles (now our missiles are extremely accurate because of religious and humanitarian reasons). Syria was the only country that helped us, so we are returning the favour.

There’s your answer.
And there’s no such thing as “Shi’a terrorist”. It’s an oxymoron and an impossibility.

<>

Thanks for your honesty Garga, as always appreciated.

I understand your history, I know Iranians don’t want to have a war inside their cities all over again and I respect that. The tensions between Iran and Israel are between the governments, not the people. I don’t believe most Iranians want to kill Israelis, the same as most Israelis don’t want to kill Iranians.

I don’t support terror attacks that kill innocent people, no matter on which side they are. I have my own moral code that I never, and I mean never, hurt an unarmed civilian in anyway. Some other IDF soldiers might do it, I don’t and I condemn it (some even get to military court for doing it, there are clear rules).

So for me, I can not accept the logic of Hamas or Hezbollah member trying to kill innocent Israelis just because they are israelis. I don’t wish to do it to innocent Gazans or Lebanese, but they have no problem do it to us. So it’s years over years of growing hatred even now when we are not inside Lebanon or Gaza, and I mean physically – No israeli is there. Yet, just like the history is playing a major role in iran, it’s the same in Gaza and Lebanon. They still think Israel is ruling them, when all we really want (the people not Bibi) is to get separated from them. I personally don’t hate Arabs in any way, only the ones who commit terror attacks against my country.

Anyway, the Iranian regime is putting more gas into the fire, while you’re pushing your front lines away from you and towards us, we get more defensive. Bibi keeps saying to the Israeli public “you see, Iran is getting closer as I warned you all those years” even though it’s BS but some believe him. So you’re making him stronger, and in some way I think you want him to stay in power. Then, he has a free hand to do whatever he wants.

The next general elections here are more 60 days, I support the two states solution so no more innocent peopel would die from both sides. But keep arming your proxies ot kill Israelis, and you’ll get many more radical Israelis in power.

farbat

are you kidding me?

these disgusting jews launch terrorist attacks on syria another fool tries to lie away and blame the saa when clearly the zionists launched attacks and you engage with these imps in talks who should be wiped out from the face of the earth every single one of these jews and lackeys

Ba’al or Moloch is a blood thirsty and always hungry deity. Its worshipers must regularly sacrifice innocents -even better if children- to satisfy it.

Do you know how many rockets Hezbollah is stroing next to Lebanese houses? why don’t you blame them? when we blow up all their stock piles, many Lebanese would die too.

Garga

Why should you attack them in the first place?
Are they invading you? Have they ever invaded you? Did they steal your land or water? How many Israeli civilians massacred the last time they invaded you with tanks and ground force?

You know why there is a Hezbollah at all? They exist because of the horrendous crimes your regime and its allies committed in Lebanon the first 2 times you invaded them. Their arsenal is just in case your regime felt like mounting another invasion of their country.

You are the reason they kicked your regime out of Lebanon. You created your worst enemy and nightmare, but by all means, don’t learn from your past mistakes. Make 1000folds new ones!

<>

We left them alone back in 2000, Lebanon had the chance to end it in a peace deal but they let Hezbollah decide for them. Why should we attack them in the first place? because we don’t accept an Iranian proxy at our borders to do the dirty work for the mullah regime. I know how close we were to enter Lebaon in August-September, the ones who would suffer the most are the Lebanese. Bottom line Garga – Hezbolah is part of the Lebanese government thus we hold all of Lebanon responsible unlike in 2006. They are not Iran, they better stop provoking or threaten us because we are ready to wipe them out.

Garga

No, you didn’t leave them alone in 2000, you had southern Lebanon up to Litani river under occupation until they kicked you out for good in 2006.

What dirty work? How many times the “Mullah” attacked you or assassinates your people? What about your invasions in ’70s and ’80s? There was no “Mulla” or Khizballa then, but I’m sure you have another boogyman ready to justify those invasions too.

We both know why you hate Hezbollah so much. The real reason is they do not let your regime to attack and occupy Lebanon like you did to Palestine to gain Liebensraum,
In a short time, there will be decent and reliable air defence in Lebanon to defend their own airspace. What a despicable thing to do, right? Do you think they have a right to defend just and only their own airspace?

Like I said, try your best to never learn from past mistakes.

<>

They have right for air defenses when the Lebanese themselves decide they put a sain government in power, which is what they want if you see their protests. As long as Nasrallah runs his little puppet show, Lebanon won’t have stability.

Garga

Wrong! They have this right in ant condition since they are a sovereign country.

Your own regime is headed by a freaking lunatic, thief, liar and criminal. They have the same right about air defence that you have.

Maybe even more, because Mr. Nasrallah (which is not a prime minister -a Sunni and usually a Saudi puppet- or a president -which is a Christian) is infinite times more honourable than the crafty Bibi, never lies and is a righteous man that doesn’t steal.

<>

In that I agree Garga – Nasrallah has more honour indeed.

Garga

the jews in palestine again do what they do best – kill civilians and children, helped on the way by the despised disunited states of exceptional morons. there is an urgent need to kill off the jews in palestine, evict them from the face of earth and their supporters embedded and entrenched in western societies transferring money to further the war crimes, the crimes against humanity and the ethnic cleansing of palestinians and the concentration camp gaza, all designed to kill off the palestinians as quickly as all possible.

the latest outrage is the friggin jews denying vaccine for the palestinians against the corona virus – what to like with this filth, nothing. they have no right to be part of mankind and thus the non-jewish part of mankind is entitled to evict them from the face of earth post haste or, asap.

swedish_viking

GBU-39 is a very cheap ($39000) and effective precision-guided glide bomb.
It’s small and cold which makes it hard to detect and very effective since they’re launched in great quantities.
One aircraft can carry a lot of them which enables cheap attacks from great distances (110 km) with a high number of incoming targets that makes it hard to protect against.
One F-16C can carry 8 GBU-39.
I’m only waiting for them to be upgraded to work in networks as a intelligent swarm, at least that is how i expect SMB (small diameter bombs) to work in the future.

chris chuba

I suspect you are correct. The most efficient defense is to destroy or disable the platforms launching them. Certainly, F35’s / F16’s are in range of most air defense systems, not certain why the SAA has not taken a few shots at them yet, perhaps because Israel has Mt. Hebron and the Golan heights is too big a disadvantage and the IAF is using human shields (passenger jets into Beirut).

swedish_viking

It’s not that easy to destroy the platforms launching them, there are a few problems. Firstly the air defenses protecting from these kind of attacks are Pantsir, BUK and so on an they don’t have the range to attack the platforms launching them, Isra.el conducts their attack at ranges far beyond the reach of those air defenses.
Secondly the attack is conducted from outside of Syria so Syria would need to launch an attack over another country.
Thirdly the use of long range air defenses like the S-300 might not be very effective at those ranges and if it where then it would only escalate the situation and Syria already has enough problems and isn’t prepared for an open conflict with Israel.
Fourthly Israeli attacks doesn’t achieve anything of military significance.

4 F-16C can carry 32 GBU-39 and launch a swarm of them from 4 different directions.
GBU-39 is a glide bomb launched from a high altitude and it doesn’t any propulsion that gives of a heat signal.
An modern air craft can carry even more of them i don’t know the number for F-16V but JAS-39E can carry 16 of them.

chris chuba

The IAF hates losing pilots. Yes, the glide bombs would get through but they wouldn’t do it again. I get that it’s not simple, otherwise the SAA would have done it already.
I think the biggest reason is that Syria is already has 3 foreign armies on its soil and does not want to deal with a savage Israeli bombing retaliation until that’s resolved.

swedish_viking

Yes, Syria doesn’t have the resources for a war with Israel.

Servet Köseoğlu

and imagine if it launched from hale class drone with payload capacity of 1.350kg..oh dear.

farbat

so all that what needs to happen is their pilots dying and their airports blowing up and they can blame whoever they want

NITRAM28

no not really IAF aircraft need to get really close to the syrian borded to launce these and if you put air defenses closer to the border you got that covered issue is that they dont wanna provoce a action outside Syrian terretory since that gives Israel a reason for invasion the S-300 is more then able to shoot down aircraft like the F16 at those ranges and more.

chris chuba

This is how SOHR is reporting it, shrapnel of regime air-defenses’ missiles kills a family I know, it’s infuriating.

They don’t bother to mention that SANA claims otherwise or how they determined this so quickly after the event. Playing Devil’s advocate, if I was a next door neighbor, I wouldn’t even be able to tell how they were killed. Wouldn’t take someone like ‘Bellingcat?’ #sarcasm.

The claim here is that the SAA tried to intercept a missile w/an S300, it failed, it detonated (plausible) but the fragmant then killed the family. I would assume that the Russians would design for this case. I know that a SAM missile cannot turn into confetti but was there any design to make it less lethal as the debris falls to the ground?

<>

I demand SF publish an apology, for blaming the IDF in that incident. It was a Syrian missile which killed that family.

Frank G

you are a complete and utter retard with your head up ur arse. A war will not be a good thing for the middle east especially for isreal, it is a war that no one will win, once it breaks out.
