Syrian Forces Launched Anti-Aircraft Missile Against Israeli Warplane. IDF Destroyed Syrian S-200 Battery

The Syrian Air Defense Forces have launched an anti-aircraft missile against an Israeli warplane flying over Lebanon, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) said on October 16.

According to the IDF, the missile didn’t hit its target.

Meanwhile, the IDF reported the Israeli Air Force destroyed a battery of the S-200 system (NATO reporting name: SA-5) of the Syrian military east of Damascus.

According to the IDF, the battery was damaged and became no longer operational.

“If anti-aircraft fire is being carried out for any military activity, we will respond as we did now,” IDF spokesman Ronen Manlis told reporters.

The tensions between Syria and Israel are furher growing as ISIS collapses around Syria. Tel Aviv sees the victory of the Syrian-Iranian-Russian  alliance in Syria as a threat to its influence in the region.

UPDATE 1:

Israel allegedly notified Russia of the airstrike on the Syrian S-200 in real time.

“The Russians were notified in real time, or maybe just before [the attack],” a representative of the IDF press service said, according to the Russian state-run media outlet Sputnik.

UPDATE 2:

The Syrian Defense Ministry released a statement saying that the Syrian Air Defense Forces responded to a violation of Syria’s airspace by Israeli warplanes.

“The General Command of the Army and Armed Forces said in a statement that at 8: 51 am on Monday Israeli warplanes violated Syria’s airspace on the border with Lebanon in Baalbek area, to which “our air defenses responded and directly hit one of the jets, forcing [the enemy] to retreat.”

The Command’s statement also said that the Israeli enemy fired at 11: 38 am a number of missiles from inside the occupied territories that hit a Syrian army position in the countryside of Damascus, resulting in material damage.

The Command warned of the “dangerous repercussions” of Israel’s repeated aggression attempts, stressing Syria’s determination to continue its war against the terrorist groups, Israel’s arm in the region,” the Syrian state-run media outlet SANA reports quoting the statement.

    • steveng

      HaHaHaaa… are you trying to be funny, stupid??? If the IDF and Israel will ever want to destroy Syria (which is not their intention) because, they don’t want that shithole Syria anyway??? They could do it, in a flash, even with the baby sitting Russian army there and Putin’s support. The SAA doesn’t exist and is a weak piece of shit army that needs ‘baby sitters’ to win any battle, its the Russian army that’s doing all the work for the SAA and the criminally insane Assad!!! You abortion brain!!!

      I hope that this wil come. togheter with the PMU from Iraq as true Brother’s in War.Once t free Arap ppl from Zionist after 70 years

      • Jens Holm

        Makes me laugh. Such things are based on facts. You are busy killing Your own. How many extra to the more then 400.000.

        Soon You will need to take all the palestinians and wastbanker to fill up Syria.

    • Jens Holm

      Seemes like Egyptians have their own problems and have to pass a jihadist strongzone first.

      Hard to unnderstand so many know so little about facts in Your own region. Makes me laugh SAA should attack Israel. It will probatly be after some tour de 2 times around Al Tanf and T2 in 3009.

  • Vince Dhimos

    Trump will always side with the Israelis no matter what they do. Many of his constitutents are Christian Zionists (they don’t call themselves that but that is what they are). They are a dangerous cult: http://www.newsilkstrategies.com/opinion/fellow-conservatives-we-need-to-talk-prt-2

    • Brother Ma

      They are just slightly less dangerous than wahhabi moslems if they get into real power.

      • Vince Dhimos

        Do Wahhabis have nukes?

        • Brother Ma

          Why not vince.they certainly have chemical weapons.pakistan learned how to make nukes.so wahabs can be given some nuclear,make a dirty bomb and in a false flag blame syrians or russkies for it or some other abc group.

          • Vince Dhimos

            Ok but a nuke in the hands of a terrorist group would not start a world war. Ask why if you need to.

          • as

            They might. If there’s a conditions that can be used by political actors. Even a whistleblower end up as spy.

          • Vince Dhimos

            Thanks for asking. Because no world power wants a nuclear war. All the hawk talk is politics. If a terrorist group sets off a nuke, no one has the will to destroy the planet by attacking another world power. That’s not good for the legacy..

          • steveng

            The Muslims, Jihadists Terrorists all want ‘NUKES’!!! Because (in their warped and twisted abortion brains) a nuclear explosion will propel all of them to the 72 virgins and Allah in heaven, like the ‘Concord’, mad cunts, always were and always will be!!!

  • Sephy

    Who cares? s200 is useless.

    • Robert Duran

      agree

    • John Whitehot

      right, tell that to the passenger of the airliner shot down by the ukrainians in 2000 over the black sea

      • Solomon Krupacek

        yup, undefeated civil planes. the only taget, which can hit.

        • Manuel Flores Escobar

          Syrian dont have S-300/400..only old SAM5 and medium range missile ineffective vs long range AGM 142 IDF missile!…Russia dont supply that weapons as Israel dont build gas pipeline to Cyprus and to EU!..thats why israel can attack Syria!

      • VGA

        They were targetting a drone and hit an airliner a huge distance away killing innocents… big success …

      • Sephy

        That wasn’t s200, but buk missile system

    • Langaniso Mhlobo

      Please help is this s-400 a system or is this not yet fuel containers on trucks.If it’s a system why is it not functioning.

      • Sephy

        According to the report, s-200 was hit. s-200 is a prehistoric air defense system that never managed to hit something in the sky as far as I know.

        s-400 is a new, modern air defense system operated by russian military inside Syria and the red army won’t fire its missiles towards any target unless they (themselves) are threatened. Of course, they should not.

  • Nizam

    Had the missile been hit Israel jets, there wouldn’t be any news, at all.

    • Jens Holm

      Damaskus was in ruins or something. Israel never bend. So there was news after that.

  • Lone Wolf

    How did the S-200 battery become damaged ? What weapon system was used to damage it … ?
    How did IAF fighter plane manage to avoid getting hit … ? Was that fighter plane F-16 ?
    so many questions …

    • gustavo

      Non mystery at all. Of course, Russia saw Israel plane and the attack, but Russia does not want to bother Israel at all. Russia allowed Israel to attack Syria, that’s simple.

      • Raptar Driver

        This was a military intelligence gathering operation by the Russians/Syrians that is why they used such an outdated system, no real loss but they acquired tech info from the Israeli missile launch. War is in the details which we are not privy to.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        and the brave russian system s-200 was not able to hit the shitty, dirty zionostic flyng machine.

        • John Whitehot

          yeah, in Solomonia S-200s never hit israeli jets.

          • Solomon Krupacek

            hm, today in syria did not hit.

            but zionost slinger desroyed syrian battery.

          • John Whitehot

            see, even if they are honest, they wouldn’t know, which makes them dishonest anyway.

            They came under fire from a battery and launched ARMs in self defence according to them.

            That means they don’t have any way to know if they hit anythig, because as it was a sudden, pop-up threat, they would not have drones or recon planes over the S-200 battery. ARM missiles don’t call back to report hits neither.

    • goingbrokes

      IAF may claim anything, it doesn’t mean it is the truth. Maybe no battery was damaged. How are they going to check? Probably a local spy, but all they are going to say is that a bomb hit the target.
      How the planes avoid getting hit? IAF flies over Lebanon on civilian air corridors, and even using civilian aircraft as cover when they attack. If you shoot with missile you may hit the civilian craft, and the PR fallout would be huge. So the missile shot may not be safe until it’s too late, and then it is just a warning shot. It’s a bit like daesh using civilians as a shield. Despicable.

  • Fritz Otto

    Syria should make a air-defense-deal with Libanon to protect both from the zionist – nazi aggression! YEA – even known members of the knesset acknowledge, that Israel ist an apartheit staat of race discrimination and extreme harassment! –
    May be the best would be a no fly zone over all Israel – so everybody could down every israelien combat-aircraft.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      hahaha, this was in bekaa. in 4h syria lost all of its air defence system :DDD

      • John Whitehot

        according to who?

        • Solomon Krupacek

          reality. this was so big bang, that the commies fall in moscow. i remember that thing. they realized, west is far away and must change the system. therefore came gorbachev.

  • Keith Smith

    s-200’s are old AA. should have been more than adequate for ‘ISIS airforce’….. Syria thanks Israel for giving them a reason to upgrade to S-400. Israel cannot outspend Syrias new defensive arsenal supplied by Russia. I hear China will be helping with infrastructure rebuilding, so no US contracts post war on that front either

    • Barba_Papa

      Israel can EASILY outspend Syria, as Russia’s pockets are not that deep that they can give away state of the art free toys. Whereas Israel only needs to ask Washington for free stuff and it will bend over backwards to accommodate. Whatever it wants Israel will get.

      • John Whitehot

        yet they run the risk to make the entire sunni world understand that they’ve been using them as cannon fodder against iran by wielding the saudi leadership, who probably has been promised dominance over the oil markets worldwide.

        • Barba_Papa

          I don’t think the Saudis have much cred with the average Arab. Maybe all the Sunni governments such Saudi cock, but most Arabs know damn well that Israel and the Saudis are in cahoots. Iran’s main problem in the Arab world is not so much that they’re Shia, but that they’re not Arabs. They used to have a lot of street cred opposing Israel and the US, but Tehran’s support for Assad, which the Arab streets sees as a bloodthirsty dictator, has cause most of that cred to evaporate.

          • John Whitehot

            my take is that the Saudis has a large degree of influence over the sunni world because it wields a powerful religious entity such as wahabism, although i’m pretty sure that they have their hands in the entire spectrum of sunni “parties”

          • Barba_Papa

            The Saudis main source of influence is that they control the two Holy Places, Mecca and Medina, and thus who gets to go there, and that they have shitloads of money to buy off other governments. Other then that nobody seems to like them that much. It’s not like their corruption and subservience to the US and Israel goes unnoticed on the Arab streets.

            As for their sponsoring of wahabism, wahabism preaches a return to pure Islam, not subservience to the Saudi state. It sounds strange that the Saudis would sponsor this but it makes sense if you realize that there is a compromise between wahabists in Saudi Arabia and the Saudi state. If they don’t rock the boat and accept the status quo in Saudi Arabia, they get money and the freedom to proselyte their brand of Islam. As such wahabism is a product of Saudi Arabia, but its not a product of the Saudi state. It’s independent. That’s what I seem to get.

  • Robert Duran

    Russia has done great stuff in Syria probably saving the region and the world(after Syria would have been Iran and who knows where this could have led to).However, I think both Syria and Iran were let down when it comes to weapon sales.If Russia can contemplate selling S400 to Turkey and worse yet Saudi Terror Arabia then why not to Syria and Iran.I know that people will tell me that Iran has S300 but remember that came with many delays and that Syria cannot afford S400 presently but it requested it before all that western manufactured chaos began…

    • Vince Dhimos

      Russia knows what it is doing. It has S-400s in Syria but in Russian hands. It knows that if Syria controlled them, there’d be a risk of them shooting down an Israeli jet. There are several reasons to avoid this, incl Russia’s ambition to lead talks betw Saudis and Israel on one hand and the Shiites on the other. They would lose this opp if they were perceived as biased.

  • Bolter10

    I though Lebannon was an independent country, what is Israel doing flying over it?

    • Bob

      Short answer: Lebanon has virtually no air defense network and Israel has violated their airspace with impunity for decades.

      • Jens Holm

        Hisbollah too.

        • Brother Ma

          Hisbollah are native shia lebanese moslems.thus no invasion,unless you take account of original invasion of moslems into there in 600 700 ad.

            It is obvious that Palestinians, being the survivors of 2,000 years inside the great mixing pot of Palestine, probably have more Biblical Jewish blood in them than the fake European Jew converts that are stealing their land.

            There was no Diaspora. Following the destruction of their Temple, the indigenous people living there (including Canaanites) didn’t go anywhere. They became Romans, and then Christians, then Muslims, then European Crusaders, then back to Muslims. Now, we just call them Palestinians.

            Thus, Palestinians are God’s chosen people, and are entitled to the land that God gave to them.

          • Freespirit

            So TRUE and you are most welcome.

            All Palestinians are Semitic ( Christians, Muslim and Jew) who were there BEFORE those European (KHAZAR converted )”Jews” invaded.

          • Brother Ma

            Rubbish, palestinians also have aryan blood from sea peoples and minoan and mycenean greek and later the Gentiles of the holy land ie hellenistic greek descendants once maccabbees jews took over .

            You are right that they are mostly semitic however.

          • Freespirit

  • gustavo

    Do you notice how inefficient is the Syria army ?

    • John Whitehot

      according to israel, they are inferior to israelis, who have extraordinary intelligence and a daring spirit.

      nobody forces us to not think otherwise though, especially those who arent jews.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        whitecockie, but you personally talked about taking back of golan by saa ;)

        • John Whitehot

          when? care to point me to that comment, because i dont remember ever talking about that

    yeah, the ISISrael have killed your generals, soldiers, aid personnel, etc, etc, and you did nothing, apart from brushing feathers, but ends up with nothing, not even mumbling, even when we all know whom is behind this, against the Russian forces, do you know what That reminds me of, huh, silent compliance, is to me as good as doing it, to your self, by constantly ignoring the problem, ISISrael.

    Again, I have nothing but an itch, and that itch is scratching, more and more, double speak, where some can do whatever they want.
    What it is, we can only assume, why, also, but the facts are obvious, what is it, that ISISrael have, or what they are, that makes an super power like Russia but cheek spreading in front of the scums, that, have I never fully understood, greed, threats, what, oil, since Russia is already cooperating with the Kurds, and now talks about Syria/Iraq as nations while they deals with the Kurdish scums.

    Russia, my final warning, they have killed you before, millions, burned down lands, have no morale nor trust, and yet, you ignore the truth, and you will, again, bleed for that, are you blind, Russia, ignorance isnt a bliss, its an deadly force.
    And I am afraid you will be gone, in 10 years, You and China will be gone, the cross road is straight ahead, fight or die.

    peace

    • Tudor Miron

      Errr.. fight or die or peace? So which is it?

  • Jordan Katz

    So more hysteria (again). The western attempt at regime change didn’t pan out, so they throw their monthly fit. Even massive amounts of airstrikes won’t win a war without ground forces, and Israel simply doesn’t have the means or manpower to try that. Probably explains why they need ISIS scumbags to help them illegally occupy the Golan region. Also, in the future it might be better for Syria to avoid exposing their air defense positions unless they are in immediate danger. Just saying.

  • John Trudgian

    Seems unlikely Syria would attack an Israeli plane outside it’s territory. More info please!

  • Langaniso Mhlobo

    My point of urgiment is whenever SAA is attack Russia isalways notify prior to the incident but does nothing.

    • Brad Isherwood

      Fantasy moment…
      Iran sends 1 Battery of S 300 with reloads to Damascus
      Tells Israel ahead of time they will.
      When asked by Russia why are you doing this,
      Iran reply’s,……..”We want to know if these systems work…..or if we just bought useless junk after waiting for years”

  • Xanatos

    “In real time”? That means they gave Russia no time to warn Syrians. Why even bother telling Russians? That’s no courtesy call, that’s rubbing their noses in it.

    That Russian made S-200 was gifted by Russia, who waived 90% of Syrian military debts, and is now paraded in headlines as utterly worthless in defending anything.

    • John Whitehot

      How would you know where the s-200 came from?

      Although Russia could have donated some in these years as far as i remember the missiles in Syrian inventory were sold by the Soviet Union in the 70/80ies.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        dont phantasize, cockie!

        • Tudor Miron

          I wonder when someone will call you by your real name and you will again start screaming “hate speach!”, “SF, Help!” as you did so many times.

  • Nigel Maund

    Israel is the main enemy in the ME and is master of mayhem and destruction and has been for decades. OK so they kncok out an outdated S200 battery – let’s see how they do against S300 or 400 and Pantsir. The time will come when the Syrians will have to down IAF jets like it or not to drive it home to the Israeli’s that they are no longer master of the ME and can do as they please. We all know who funded trained and armed ISIS; i.e., Israel, so we know who the purveyor of terrorism is to both the ME, Europe and the US especially if they do not get their way in the ME.

    • Attrition47

      I agree, at the moment the Syrians are taking on one enemy at a time but once the US head-chopping, heart-eating rapers have been seen off and the Kurds dealt with, the fascist pigs will get their turn.

    • John Whitehot

      “OK so they kncok out an outdated S200 battery”

      actually it’s the claim they made. The syrians claimed to have shot down one israeli plane.

      Wonder why we should believe the israelis if no proof is provided.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        AMN confirmed

        • John Whitehot

          i don’t believe it.
          provide technical proof.

      • VGA

        In the past syrian claims of downing aircraft were proven false. But the israelis have no problem with their shitty bombings etc.

      • Nigel Maund

        Fair comment – thanks!

  • Attrition47

    It’s about time that the zionist antisemite bastards got taught some manners.

  • Kira Binkley

    And who backs Israel?

    • Solomon Krupacek

      JHVH

      • John Whitehot

        dat dude?

        XDD

        • Solomon Krupacek

    • BL

      kike Jews

  • Solomon Krupacek

    hoooh, hey, you, antizionosts, howw will defeat syria israel with so shitty equipment????

    • John Whitehot

      lol, maniac, the israeli can’t even confirm they hit anything.

      • Solomon Krupacek

        damascus confirmed

  • Thegr8rambino

    i really hope the zionist jet that got hit was downed

  • Ivanus59

    “Routine flight over Lebanon” !?!? Routine violation of sovereign air space? Routine aggression against neighbors? Routine zionist lunacy…

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    100% useless Russian anti-air junk that has never worked.
    Get your money back Syria, and sue Russia for faults advertisement.
    I never met a Russian anti-air missile that can hit a single Israeli aircraft ever.
    Moscow could be flattened by Israel and no Israeli plane would ever go down unless it is a mechanical malfunction.
    Russia your days are numbered for as the Jews do today to Syria, they do tomorrow to ethnic-Russians.
    Soon you will be just as helpless as Palestinians are today lol.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      huh, hard words: I never met a Russian anti-air missile that can hit a single Israeli aircraft ever.

      for softer words i was several times rocked on this forum :)

    • Prince Teutonic

      These “SAM” systems brought down a lot of american jets over Korea in fifties and over Vietnam in sixties…

      • Real Anti-Racist Action

        But never an Israeli craft. Israel tweaks their Jets.
        US planes go down even by themselves.
        I am talking about Israel.
        And I did not say the US could ever bomb Moscow, but Israel I know can.

        • chris chuba

          The S200 is an old system designed to take out bombers and tactical planes like AWACS. This isn’t a real test unless they got to use an S300 or later variant.

  • Enkidu

    JIDF comes in force when an article mentions Israel. lol

  • Domenic Patrone

    Israel is trying to bait the cast and crew up north into another front on it’s border. It won’t work, so why bother discussing it now.

  • Langaniso Mhlobo

    Israeli terrorist are destroy and this piss off Netanyahu and Jesus killer stupid manslaughter jews.Israeli killings are traditionally and historically with so much hatred and stupidness.Because Israel Jews think their superior human beings while their are worst racist.

  • Manuel Flores Escobar

    Israel are testing Pantsir S1 system..surely many of AGM 142 popeye long range air to ground missile have been intercept!..we have seen more than 10 attacks on Meezeh airport without significative damage!

  • steveng

    What a laugh, the anti-Semitic trolls are on here by the bucket loads, bellowing lies and misconstruing their anti-Semitism to their utmost fantasies. Typical troll behaviour!!!

  • “The Syrian Air Defense Forces have launched an anti-aircraft missile against an Israeli warplane flying over Lebanon, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) said on October 16.”

    The IDF is saying that Syria violated Lebanese sovereignty – right after they did.
    Not bloody likely – if Syria shot at them then they were in Syrian airspace.

  • Melika Azizi

    Iranian air defense force has implemented several improvements on their S-200 systems such as using solid state parts and removing restrictions on working time. They destroyed a Very Small UAV target beyond 120 km range in military drill in recent years ( 2015 ) / and :
