Syrian Air Defense Forces Intercepted SPICE 1000 Bomb During Recent Israeli Attack On Homs

The Syrian Arab Air Defense Forces (SyAADF) intercepted a SPICE 1000 glide bomb during the July 22 Israeli aerial attack on Homs.

The guided bomb was shot down by the SyAADF over Lebanon. The bomb’s remains fell near the town of Lehfed in Mount Lebanon. Lehfed is located 80 km away from the main target of the Israeli aerial attack, al-Daba Air Base in the southern countryside of Syria’s Homs.

The SPICE [Smart, Precise Impact, Cost-Effective] is an Israeli-developed, EO/GPS-guided guidance kit for converting air-droppable unguided bombs into precision guided bombs. The Spice 1000 is a variant for warheads weighting 450 kg such as the MK-83, MPR1000, BLU-110 and RAP-1000. It has a range of 100 km.

The SyAADF have already intercepted a SPICE 1000 glide bomb before, including near the Syrian capital Damascus on January of 2019.

The July 22 Israeli attack didn’t result in any human losses. Nevertheless, al-Daba Air Base, Hezbollah’s main logistic center in Syria, was severally damaged.

Israel appears to be planning to intensify its attacks on Syria. The July 22 attack was the second this week. The first attack, which targeted several positions in eastern Aleppo, took place on July 19.

Most Zionist ordinance has been compromised in Syria. Hezbollah has been able to retrieve this SPICE bomb intact and it is on its way to Iran. This latest failed raid also shows that SAA despite Russian objections is effectively using Iranian Khordad SAM systems in Lebanese airspace from where the Zionist F-16I launch these munitions. Now the Zionists are operating from Cyprus to launch these ineffective stand-off bombs. This latest failure will help Iran immensely in perfecting interception strategies.

What are Russian objections?

Americunt LOSERS

There is a new sheriff in Tehran who’s not a huge fan of the JCPOA – and the Biden administration won’t like it one bit. Raisi intends to increase support for the Axis of Resistance.

Putin can close the skys obove Syria,Lebanon, Palestine. So the parasite zionists, nato, uk…. would be nailed on the ground. The S300 is not in service !!! He is playng a durty game.

The Zionist criminals sold the same overpriced garbage to India and they failed against Pakistan as all were shot down. Now the Delhi Mossad station has bugged the phones of our Congress leaders like Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi creating a huge backlash against Jews.

Liberal guy

Hahahahaha spot on well said

southfront fan

be nice if russia would provide the s 400 to syria.

Raptar Driver

It would be even better if they would let the S300’s do their job.

Jim Allen

Not necessary.

Selbstdenker

Or have a missile following the attacking F16 to their home base.

Jim Allen

Unnecessary

Jim you are full of shit as usual.

Marshalldoc

Time to start intercepting them before they’re released!!

Raptar Driver

Better to hit the platforms than the actual projectiles.

A clown like you

RT: “Russian-made air defense systems shot down ALL Israeli missiles targeting Syria’s Homs – military”
All four missiles fired by Israeli warplanes at Syria’s Homs province early on Thursday were shot down by the Syrian Army using Russian-made ‘Buk’ air defense systems, the Russian military has revealed.
Two Israeli F-16 jets fired the guided missiles from Lebanese airspace, around 01:11 local time on Thursday.

“All four missiles were destroyed by on-duty Syrian air defense units, using Russian-made Buk-M2E systems,” the Russian Reconciliation Center for Syria said in a statement.

Accord Russian media ( Rusvesna) Syrian air defense BUK M2 and Pantsir have intercepted all missile and bombs ( 4 delilah) and 2 Spice bombs and the Israeli attack have failed.

India used the same SPICE failed bombs on the Balakot strike and all were shot down by Pakistan, it was a huge embarrassment as IDF advisors had planned the failed mission in which one of our pilots was captured. Syria should target the Zionist planes as soon as they enter Lebanese coast airspace.

bazzolo

At the risk of downing the civilian ones the zionist scum hides behind?

noZioP1gs

IAF=IAF – Get it? LOL

farbat

zionist weapons are trash and they are that way because they are produced by feeble minded jews
