The August 14 Israeli attack on Syria targeted two air defense bases of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) near the Syrian capital, Damascus, and in the western governorate of Tartus.
The first air defense base is located a few kilometers to the southwest of the town of al-Qutayfah in the eastern countryside of Damascus. Israeli fighter jets attacked the large base, which is known to host several types of radar and air-defense system, from the direction of the Lebanese capital, Beirut.
The second base is located in the outskirts of the town of Abu Afsa in the southern countryside of Tartus. The base was deactivated a few years ago. No air defense system is known to be deployed there currently. Israeli fighter jets attacked the base from the direction of the Mediterranean Sea.
The attack claimed the lives of three SAA service members, Mahmud Ataf, Ali Badour and Ismail Shaaban. All three were reportedly air defense operators.
In an apparent response to the attack, Iranian-backed forces in Syria and Iraq attacked a base of the US-led coalition in the southeastern Syrian area of al-Tanf with suicide drone and another base in the northeastern governorate of Deir Ezzor with rockets on August 15.
Israel stepped up its attacks on the Syria’s air defenses this year in what appears to be an attempt to maximize the SAA’s human and material losses. At least 31 Syrian service members have been reportedly killed in Israeli attacks since the beginning of the year. Several air defense systems were also damaged or destroyed.
Despite the recent attacks, Syria’s air defenses are still active and effective. Israeli fighter jets continue to launch their attacks from outside Syria’s airspace using stand-off munitions. Moreover, Israel is using ground-launched munitions on some occasions.

Where’s the UN strong condemnation? Where’s MSM denunciation? Where’s the international community’s sanctions? Where’s the human rights group’s outcries and demonstrations? Where’s International courts investigation? Where’s public boycott of Israeli products? Were they really the chosen ones anointed by God to rule the planet reflected through what’s happening now? I for one am registering my contemptuous objection and disgust to what’s Israel is doing. And urging each one of you here to do the same.
Israël attacking Syria anf killing innocents without any reason. This is cowardice, terrorism and criminal behaviour. The true nature of this “country”
Running out of people to kill and experiment upon as Genociding the Jewish People in Israel by their own government isn’t enough killing for the “leadership” huh boys..
Zev Zelenko called it out for what it is. He never stopped speaking Truth…such a Beautiful Man.
These raids are of no strategic significance. Iran is building up Syria’s ai defences slowly. In 2 or 3 years no Israeli plane will be able to fly over Syria and survive. Not over Israel either unless Syria allows it.
The big nuclear base in Israel trying to remember the name of that facility. When it hits the fan with nato don’t forget to take out the Israeli facility as a first option
So… When does Russia officially declare that ANY attack on Syria is an attack on the Russian Federation?…
Been waiting for that announcement since 2015!…
So when do the sanctions against the evil rogue state of Israel begin to punish them for attacking a peaceful neighboring country. When will Facebook banners saying “I stand with Syria” be available. (Don’t hold your breath folks!)
