Syrian Air Defense Force Intercepts Missile Near Russian Base In Hama

Illustrative image,

Late on August 15, the Syrian Arab Air Defense Forces (SyAADF) intercepted a missile of an unspecified type over the town of Masyaf in the western Hama countryside.

Citing an unnamed military source, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported that the mysterious missile came from northern Lebanon.

“At 23:06 of Thursday night, 15-8-2019, our air defense media uncovered a hostile target coming from northern Lebanon towards the town of Masyaf, and immediately dealt with it destroying it before it could reach its target,” the military source said.

A Russian base is located in the area, over which the missile was intercepted. An S-400 air-defense system is known to be deployed in the base. Moreover, a Syrian S-300 air-defense system is deployed in a nearby base.

Pro-government sources said the missile was launched by an Israeli warplane. This remains the most logical scenario. However, it is yet to be confirmed.

The Israeli Air Force (IAF) is known for its extensive use of aerial decoys. Israel’s IMI Systems developed several decoy missiles over the years, such as the ADM-141A\B TALD and the ADM-141C ITALD, which are equipped with passive and active radar enhancers. TALD has a range of 126km, while the ITALD’s range is over 300km.

Israel may have launched a decoy missile to provoke the SyAADF in order to collect information and prepare for future airstrikes on targets in the region.

  • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

    what kind of “information” can israel collect by launching a decoy? if its destroyed isnt the info destroyed too?

    • Rob

      The decoy missile used to see the location of the air defence radars. As the radars are activated so the Israel see the locations of the radars which are then easy to destroy by inactive radar homing missiles.

      • Rhodium 10

        Not needed decoys just the aircraft detect the radar waves and its locations….Israel launched a missile or guide bomb….loud explosion over the sky was heard in Homs and Tartus..

        • PZIVJ

          The AA missiles will provide the loud explosion heard.
          Israhell missile or glide bombs not normally launched as singles.
          Could be decoys trying to gain intel as far as Syrian S300 location, etc.

      • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

        Can the radars be moved? If the decoy missile is destroyed how can israel get the data?

        • Rob

          Yes definitely Syria should immediately dislocate their SAMS because Syrian forces have activated their radars then they have hit the coming missiles. Israel have already taken 3D picture of each SAM system.

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            I hope israel fails miserably every single time they try to attack syria :)))

    • Willing Conscience (The Truths

      They pickup the Syrian radar signals that are given off by their own radar and electronics surveillance systems, they like to know reaction times, effective detection ranges, types of frequencies used, all sorts of info can be gained, the decoy’s just used to make them activate their radars, it’s just a bullet nothing more.

      • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

        OK but is the decoy doing the collecting? Or something else?

        • Rob

          Decoy missiles are like subsonic mach 0.8 speed UAV drones with radars to detect and measure the up coming radiations from radars for GPS which will be fed to GPS in missiles to be used next time. These decoy missiles are data linked with Israeli fighter jets as well as with the military air base. Nowadays these systems are much cheaper and easily available from China.

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            Syria should change it radar signals/radiation now to make info israel got useless

          • Rob

            I have mentioned above that still anti radiation missiles will hit the target regardless of its frequencies.

          • Willing Conscience (The Truths

            They can’t change the frequencies the radars use, they’re set, though a few do use dual or multi band frequencies.
            The Israelis do this to see what mobile radars are located where, and what type they are, and what sort of range they have, that way the Israelis can plot courses to avoid them, that’s why they’re usually switched off and only activate when the main fixed radar systems tell them to, they hide that information from the Israelis and the Israelis don’t know where they are.

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            Syria should put some radars/SAMS closer to lebanon and israhell to give them less hiding space and breathing room

          • Rob

            Very bad idea.

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            Why?

          • Rob

            May be you know or not Lebanon is a free country. That is a main hub of Israel. If Syria bring these radars close to Lebanon border then that can be easily targeted by anti radiation missiles without using any decoy missiles. Syrian have studied all options then they have chosen that locations for radars.

          • Willing Conscience (The Truths

            They don’t need to put the radars closer but the SAM’s and MANPADS are better when closer to their targets.
            The Russians and possibly the Syrians too can also detect the Israeli radars systems when they’re active, perhaps the Syrians should also launch a few decoys Israelis way and see where their hidden radars are too, just for the fun of it, better still follow up with a missile strike on the revealed radar units.

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            yes, give them a taste of their own SHIT HAHAHAHAA

        • Willing Conscience (The Truths

          The decoy is sent in to make the Syrian and Russian radar systems activate, then the Israeli radar and electronic surveillance systems which are either on the ground in Israel or sometimes located in reconnaissance aircraft nearby, can detect the signals given off by the Russian and Syrian radars.
          Most targeting radars are switched off until they’re needed, the decoy gives them a reason to activate.

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            Well Syria should change its radar frequencies/emissions/signals now so whatever info israel may have got wont do them much good anymore

          • Rob

            If they change the frequency still the hitting of the target is imminent.

          • Willing Conscience (The Truths

            If the Syrians activated any of their hidden radar units during the latest incident, they would have moved them immediately after they were no longer needed to new hidden locations.
            But the Israelis have a multitude of spies that give them even more info than their electronic surveillance devices do, Assad should set about eliminating that huge advantage the Israelis have to help even the playing field.

          • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

            agree million procentage

  • Rob

    The purpose of the launch of the decoy missiles is to prompt the Syrian air defense forces to activate many of its radars, most of which would be then destroyed by anti-radiation missiles.

    • PZIVJ

      Good advice Rob. Does this small decoy have a data link, or just used to light up the radars so others can see their position? “passive and active radar enhancers” must mean it can look like another type of weapon or aircraft to a radar as far as size.

      • Rob

        Definitely these missiles would have data link to make 3D picture with accurate coordinations displayed on the top of each radar.

    • Rhodium 10

      Accord Al Masdar there were 2 failed attacks and 2 missile were intercepted by SAA air defense…one in Hama near the city of Masyaf ( where IRGC have a base) and another in Homs near the Town of Mesha al-Helou….

      • Rob

        This is not enough. Through these decoy missiles Israel have collected the Syrians Radars location GPS data. Which will be fed to missiles to hit the target precisely. Due to this mistake Iraq have lost war. That look we have destroyed the Israeli missiles but then next time Israel have precisely hit their all radars.

  • Rhodium 10

    Israel failed to attack some target surely a warehouse or ammo depot…they would use an aerial guide bomb GBU 39 or Spice 2000..because have wasted many expensive AGM 142 and Delilah for nothing!… so Decoy is useless because we are not in 1980 and all of air defense system are mobile althougt some times unprofessional movements of SAA like when 2 pantsir where destroyed enable israeli airstrikes!

    • Rob

      I gonna block you. You spread disinformation.

      • Rhodium 10

        Go to Israel!

  • Zionism = EVIL

    The Zionist scum fired a stand off missile at the Russian base from the Lebanese coast, the SAA batteries shot it down. Russia needs to get touch with the Zionist scum as they are trying to kill Russians as the headchoppers lose in Syria. The Zionist scum don’t attack Syria by air now as Iran has consolidated its position from Tehran to Beirut, so now they lob missiles from far off.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    But why target a Russian base or anything at all anywhere near it, that’d be a mistake I couldn’t imagine the Israelis making, not after what happened the last time Russian personnel were killed, something fishy here.

    • You can call me Al

      TEsting missile defence – nothing else, remember the Russia S-400 is turned off for some insane reason.

      • PZIVJ

        Is the S400 in stealth mode, deployed with radars off?
        If so the system can brought on line rapidly if needed. :)

        • Willing Conscience (The Truths

          They have a passive mode that doesn’t reveal their locations to the enemy, but when they’re fully activated they light up like beacons.
          Switched on and off in seconds or minutes from passive mode I think.
          Large stationary radars at the Syrian airports act as early warning radars, if there’s a need they tell specific radars in the affected areas to switch on and target the enemy. A central command centre controls all of the Syrian radar systems, hidden and visible, and the Russians have a command link to the Syrians system.
          The trick with mobile radars is to keep them hidden from the enemy and only activate them when they’re needed, not just to keep them safe from enemy missiles, it’s to keep the enemy in the dark about your defensive capabilities and weak spots.

        • You can call me Al

          Thanks.

      • Willing Conscience (The Truths

        Or trying to discover hidden radar locations, that way the Israelis can plot a course through them with the real payloads.
        Most hidden radar systems remain switched off until needed, that way their locations remain unknown to the enemy. The S-400’s have other early warning radars to let them know when they’re needed, when notified they go fully online and search for targets, which then means they’re detectable, so the ideal tactic is to keep them in passive mode until they’re really needed.
        The air radars at the major Syrian airports are very sophisticated and accurate, as well as having reasonable long range, they act as early warning radars for all the hidden radar systems in Syria, and they link to command centres that relay that data to all radar systems both hidden and operating, and activate the appropriate hidden radars when and where they’re needed.

    Wonder why they are so focused on Russia?

    There are some good articles, over on Stalker Zone, not connected to the above, but, how the same old crowd is trying to play ‘The Maidan’ scenario, over in Moscow (just like they are doing in Hong Kong). Interesting the timing, just after the Presidents of Russia and China, decided to turn their backs on the $US. Do feel like we have entered WWIII, but, nobody bothered to let us know.

    Wish Syria, Venezuela, Iran, Russia, China and so many others all the best, fighting back the evil, that is being inflicted on the world.

    So how do you get a regime change script going, courtesy of the Stalker Zone?

  • Boycott-Israel!

    Iran will obliterate Isisrathell first, if their action in Syria is also endanger Iran.

  • iosongasingsing

    It is not admissible that Lebanon does not have an anti-missile defense system, given the continuous attacks by the Nazisrael terrorist state on its territory.
