It became known about the interception of the Russian Su-27 Israeli board near Syria


The Su-27 multipurpose fighter of the Russian Air Force (apparently, the Su-27SM3 - Ed.) Intercepted an Israeli passenger aircraft Airbus A320 of the Israir aviation company - the plane flew from the island of Rhodes in the direction of Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion airport. This was announced on Monday October 19 by the Ynet portal.


According to the resource, the rapprochement of the Russian military aircraft and the A320 took place on Sunday, October 18, in the airspace in the area of ​​Cyprus - the local air traffic controller warned the Israeli airliner about the approach of a Russian fighter.

The Su-27 approached an Israeli passenger plane at a distance of about one mile (about one and a half kilometers), which is considered a very close distance in flight conditions and given the speed characteristics of the Russian fighter - the Su-27 usually does not go to such an approach to civil aircraft. However, there were no threats to A320 passengers.

According to a number of sources, the activity of the Russian aerospace forces in the region of Cyprus has recently increased - this is associated with the operational activities of the Russian military aviation in the immediate vicinity of the Russian Khmeimim airbase, located in Syria. It is also noted that similar "incidents" with the Su-27 took place in relation to other aircraft. Representatives of the Russian military department have not yet commented on the incident.

    Here the Israeli civilian aircraft was escorted, so why the Israeli military aircraft are not escorted, and they freely bomb Syria ...

      Israeli military aircraft over the territory of Syria should not be escorted, but shot down, several of our planes have already been lost due to the provocative actions of Israeli F-16s, and we let them get away with it, no one invited them there !!!

        Vanya, did you notice that it was a passenger plane? Your hands seem to itch, and especially your tongue. Syria borders on us and it is our enemy. so that we do not need permission from you to beat the Syrians when necessary. And you should not interfere.

          Moishe, because of you we are losing our planes and our guys, so your actions may not have the best effect on the relations between our countries and the Jews living in the Russian Federation. But if you don’t give a damn about that, then I’m even more so. If all of your people are driven out of the Russian Federation with garbage rags in 24 hours, I will not object, because you are insolent and take on a lot

    The Israeli press was not talking about interception, but about a dangerous rapprochement with a civilian vessel. No strain, but ... The dispatcher from Cyprus warned the liner about the danger.

      The article is so titled for "Hurray for the Patriots" to be proud of how the Su27 was able to intercept the old A320.

    There was no danger to the Israeli passenger plane at the time the Russian fighter approached it. Nevertheless, such an approach to a distance of less than two kilometers is undesirable. In this regard, the Cypriot air traffic control service separated the planes without any problems. We are talking about compliance with flight safety rules and emergency situations, and not deliberate actions in the form of interception.

    And talk? So the interception is not far from Cyprus, Turkey and Israel, or was it 1,5 km from the board above the neutral waters of the Mediterranean? Two birds flew, a horse and a cow, kiss me on the brick, I'm sitting in the attic. The appointment is at three green whistles on the roof of the planetarium.

    - Vaska, you are losing your planes solely because of your own bungling and nothing else.

    ... so your actions may not have the best effect on relations between our countries and the Jews living in the Russian Federation. But if you don’t give a damn about it, then I’m even more so.

    - Don't be ridiculous, Putin does not share your "point of view" ... wink
