Take-off and fall: Syrian air defense missiles “lost their target” in an Israeli attack


The network gained fame for a video that allegedly demonstrates the inefficiency of Syria’s air defense, which is armed with the Russian S-300 air defense systems and the Pantsir air defense system, when Damascus defends against an Israeli air attack.


The video appeared on Twitter and was subsequently distributed by the American portal The Drive.

The video shows how several rockets sequentially take off over Damascus, most of which fall almost immediately, and one explodes after flying a short distance. At the same time, it is not clear whether the missile reached its target or self-destructed.

The portal suggested that the reason for this behavior of Syrian air defense missiles could be Israel’s use of electronic warfare systems, in particular Delilah cruise missiles with electronic suppression and designed to combat enemy radar.

At the moment, the Israeli Ministry of Defense has not provided any comments on what happened, and the Syrian military claims that most of the Israeli missiles were shot down.


Recall that the air attack of the Syrian capital was carried out by the Israeli Air Force on the night of November 20, and as a result, about ten CAA soldiers and civilians were killed and wounded.

          I would have titled the publication differently: "The falling missiles were smoking ...." Well then. This is a good lesson for the Assad regime and its Iranian backers. If only they learned. But for the marketing of Syrian air defense, this is anti-advertising.

            They have no time for marketing. It is necessary to show the Iranians that they are defending the IRGC and the Hezbollons, on the other hand, it is scary to inflict real harm on the Jews, for they will take out a lot of expensive and necessary things in response, as happened after the downing of the F-16 in February 18th. Assad is in a difficult situation, in which he is undoubtedly to blame, but, on the other hand, no one was preparing him for power, just after Basil’s death he remained the only adequate heir to Hafez.

              Birds, hares, beasts in a cage,
              They are all puppets,
              in hard and hard hands.


              Neither Assad nor his opponents are anyone and there is no way to call them.

    Did you take the video again from a computer game? Oh, these Israelis! Such talented programmers. For the sake of promoting the F-35, they’ll come up with anything.

    They didn’t take off and fell, but seeing that there was no one to shoot down, they returned to positions to continue to perform air protection services.

    Whatever the Syrian air defense, and Israeli aviation does not enter the airspace of Syria, but launches missiles from afar ... The video shows their defeat by the Syrian air defense systems ... And you do not need to distort what is not visible ...
