Syria And Hezbollah Are Developing Electronic Warfare Systems To Counter Israel – Report

Illustrative image

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Lebanese Hezbollah are developing an electronic warfare system capable of jamming the U.S. Global Positioning System (GPS) in order to disturb future operations of the Israeli military in Syria and Lebanon, the Israeli Channel 2 reported on November 21.

According to the Israeli news channel, the Israeli military trained on carrying out operations inside Syria and Lebanon under heavy jamming conditions recently in order to address this new challenge. Israeli electronic countermeasures were reportedly used during the training.

The GPS system is widely used by all branches of the Israeli military, especially the Air Force. GPS-guided or -aided projectiles are often used by Israel to hit targets in Syria, according to experts. These advanced weapons allow Israel to hit targets precisely from a safe-distance.

If the SAA and Hezbollah managed to jam the complicated positioning system, even if on a limited scale, the Israeli military would lose one of its key technical advantages.

    Good! The harder they make it to bomb them, the less likely it will happen.

    • Jens Holm

      Often it makes escalation in stead.

      • Bigaess Wangmane

        So according to your logic, Syria & Lebanon increasing their defense capabilities is gonna increase Israeli and American aggression against them, so Syria and Lebanon should choose instead to not defend themselves…

        • Jens Holm

          Its not up to me to decide. I just tell, that logic has to see the whole picture and not only one option.

          Some old chinese even said, if there are 2 options, You can be sure, there are at least 3 more.

          And I didnt invent logic which is invented by others. I just tell, there are many more reactions then “less likely will happen”, according to the very limitid one by Barba.

  • H Eccles

    This is just fab!..
    I always get excited when I hear news like this… you know, news that the illegal squatters are going to get it up their proverbial anytime soon..

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The Zionist website Debka which infects virus in people’s computers is even crying about how much Hezbollah has learnt from its victories in Syria and Iraq and how it now possesses some of the most modern technology.

      • Jens Holm

        They are not crying at all. So far You forget, that the result also is support to the non shiits in lebanon as well as Israel by Saudis.

        You also forget Hesbollah need soldiers because so many has lost their lifes. Soon it will be difficult to find Hesbs having more then one leg too. Only true the quality has raised.

      • H Eccles

        yeah I poped along to Debka.. it’s full of ranting Israelis in the comment sections whingeing why their govt hasn’t nuked the planet yet..

        • Val Shadowhawk

          Ha! They can screech and gnash their fangs all day. Won’t help them a bit. Good!!

    • Val Shadowhawk

      Yeah! Ain’t it cool?

      • H Eccles

        awesome!

  • Jens Holm

    Makes me laugh. Jamsessions, whats next pussycat.

    • Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

      Every modern army is 100% depended on coms and electronic nav aid, the art of map and compass is quickly being lost, and with airforces, navys and weapons being more and more depended on long range and super precise nav and weapons guiding, aids like GPS becomes your achilles heel.

      Remember how depending the USAF was on missile technology during the Vietnam War, and when that did not work, they had to bring back the good old dogfight, but not without many lives and planes was lost.

      So being able to jam the enemys coms and navaid and weapons guidance give you control over the operations they can perform.

      • Jens Holm

        I agree. But the result will be anti-anti only.

        USA has learned a lot since Vietnam in those matters too. The whole world has. USA do avoid all kinds of dogfights in air as well on the ground. Thats for the dogs or none.

        Jamming is not a new thing. It was used very much in WW2.

        • Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

          That USAF is avoiding dogfighting is debateable, i do not think that, even though they prefer BVR tactics and weapons above dogfighting.

          Dogfighting is still and will for a very long time be the bread and butter of a fighterpilot, it is way easier to avoid/fool sensors and weapons than another pilot.

          Im not saying that jamming is something new, im saying that jamming is a bigger and more important part of the moderne battlefield than ever.
          Therefore energy and efforts put into jamming is paying off even better than ever before.

          • Jens Holm

            People do find weapons against jamming. I have seen some experiments a nd one is to use almost none computers and other navigation self systems.

          • Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

            Its called ECCM, and not using computers and/or SATNAV is, in many instances, a no-go for a modern army.

  • AM Hants

    Nice move, plus, good luck.

  • Sinbad2

    Jamming is good, but spoofing is better.
    If you could feed fake GPS coordinates to the Israeli missiles, you might be able to target Israel with their own missiles.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    The next war against Zionist scum will show a quantum leap in the capability of the Axis of Resistance. Even totally encircled Hamas made them cry uncle, imagine what Hezbollah will do to the Zionist child killers.

    • Jens Holm

      No, they dodnt. Totally fake propagands from You. Hamas using most resspources killing each other. The relation ships westbank/Gaza seemes lower then ever.

      • potcracker2588

        satnic jew donky…….is it true to become a true satanic jew , one has to fuck his own mum up her ass? hiw was it? and how is the weather in satanic israel???
        all jews die motherfucker

        • John Whitehot

          “all jews die motherfucker”

          be the first.
          nobody ‘s gonna miss ya here.

        • Jens Holm

          Your words confirm facts very well.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    With some extra help from the Russians and Iranians?

  • Lena Jones

    If they’re talking about it in israel already and the West is writing about it too, it means that the SAA and Hezbollah have already achieved their jam-jams.

    Chalk this up as yet another jew failed project in the Levant.

    And the tel aviv ‘failures list’ just keeps getting longer and longer…

    • Jens Holm

      Your conclusions arfe totally wrong. West and Israel are able to and allowed to make solution by debate.

      I see no failed Jew projekt in the Levant at all. Israel behave exact the same was as it has done 1948.

      And where are the Succes from others, which not even agree with someone like You at all. Make the longer and longer lidt Yourself.

      True 12 mio with no homes can be a long line as well as 500.000 dead ones can be seen even from the moon.

      Idlib having 5 armies is a part of Your succes too ? Economy ? Bombarding each ofter and even farmers on work ? You can take gas on that.

      Facts are, that You dont use facts about most things just homemade ones made by Your leaders. If You disagree like here at Facebook/Twitter many of You are jailed right away, so You dont.

      Thats the style for almost all of You.

      • Lena Jones

        Erm… how shall I count the ways…

        1. Bashar still rules.

        2. Hezbollah is stronger and fantastically missile-capable.

        3. No israeli terrorist plane can fly over Syria or Lebanon ANYMORE.

        4. Iran forces in Syria, right at israel’s doorstep.
        5. Israel’s pet Idlib terrorists getting slaughtered.

        6. Syrians in occupied Golan rebelling.

        7. Relations with Russia in the crapper.

        8. Now unable to strike at even Gaza.

        Yinon in the shitter’s hole? I’d say so lol!

        And it an only get worse and worse from here.

        Well done Bibi! We love you – for the wrong reason, that is!

        • Jens Holm

          If You say so.

      • John Whitehot

        “Israel behave exact the same was as it has done 1948”

        Exactly.

        Treacherous is the most fitting adjective.

        Thanks Al pal ;-)

        Another blog post promoting the old hoax that a russian plane shot down an us destroyer in 2014

    • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

      hahahaahah!!!!

  • potcracker2588

    lololol
    neither hezbollah or SAA have the tech capabilities…..russia gave the means to SAA with the S-300 delivery…and HEz. getting the info. and tech from SAA.

    but even without those capabilities, the satanic jew israel cannot sustain all out war with iran SAA and Hez and hamas longer than 4 weeks…and in those 4 weeks most of israels military capabilities will be wiped out…..satanic jew israel only has 1 BIG leverage over the above mentioned…..nukes

  • John Whitehot

    bullshit.

    This newspaper seemingly ignore that the jamming of Israeli planes GPS systems was the second point of the document explaining the defenisve measures Russia would put in place in Syria; after the introduction of S300s to Syrian ad units.

    Israeli press has taken a deliberate propagandistic cut and tells lies about everything it publishes, at least when it comes to foreign politics.

    Wonder when they’ll start inventing imaginary strikes on Syria (although somehow Liebermann already did that).

    Don’t forget it’s the same people which were swearing that God sent a fog at the Israeli northern border to prevent the IDF to enter combat with ISIS.

    • You can call me Al

      See my comment above as my direct response to you is not loading.

    • You can call me Al
      • John Whitehot

        it is for sure.

        It contains much info on the latest Russian EW systems. As for the content of the Israeli article, my feel is that is made to separate somehow the public’s perception of how these devices effect the “strike against hezbollah and iranians in syria” subject.

        Israel is now in a position where it can’t strike, but it still has to keep their public convinced that they can, and actually do it.

        Sadly, it pertains to the wretched Nethanhyau policies with which he created the myth of invincibility in Israelis – because “hey, after all, we should be the invincible ones”.

        All those policies, written by pigheads detached from reality and above all from any strategical thinking, are today suffering severe setbacks, which should be enough for their implementers to understand that keeping their pursuit will bring even greater disasters.

        We can only hope, although it’s bibi we are talking here, and the shady people hiding behind him, something that cannot reassure anybody.

        • You can call me Al

          These Israelis do seem to be flapping a little. If they had stayed quiet and tried hard to lose their greed gene – they could have been alright; but now; they will have to go..

          I recommend California or Arizona.

  • You can call me Al

    Please read this article and ignore the above one, which seems to be oversimplified and is thus making everyone sceptical – https://www.veteranstoday.com/2018/09/28/electronic-warfare-comes-to-syria-israel-and-us-out-of-their-depth/

    • Tony B.

      If it’s true. Duff is long time CIA who fought like hell to get Hillary elected president for some unfathomable reason.

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    a very good development :)))
