"There is an agreement": Israel told why the Syrian S-300 do not shoot at their planes


Tehran continues to threaten Tel Aviv from Syrian territory, so the Israeli Air Force continues to air strikes on Syria. At the same time, some media outlets and analysts believe that Moscow does not allow Damascus to use the supplied S-300 air defense systems against Israeli aviation. This information was commented on the Israeli TV channel ITON.TV by the former head of the Nativ special service, ex-Israeli ambassador to Russia and Ukraine, senior researcher at the National Security Institute Zvi Magen.


The expert noted that in October 2018, Russia donated to Syria a number of S-300PM-2 (approximately three divisions) so that the Syrians would “punish” Israel for the incident with the Russian Il-20 reconnaissance aircraft. But circumstances appeared that prevented this.

Magen claims that since that time, the aforementioned air defense systems have never been brought into combat readiness. He confirmed that the Syrians do not really use them and do not fire them at Israeli planes, since they simply cannot do this "without Moscow's permission."

Israel has an agreement with Russia, if you like

Magen emphasized.

The expert clarified that the Israeli Air Force does not strike at Russian targets in Syria. In response, Russia is "rather careful and careful" about what is happening. Tel Aviv does not interfere with Moscow's activities on Syrian soil, and for this, the Russians “allow” the Israelis to strike at Iranian targets and pro-Iranian groups in this territory.

He stressed that all of Israel's strikes against Syria are "this confrontation between Tel Aviv and Tehran," which has nothing to do with Russia.


We remind you that on September 17, 2018, four F-16s of the Israeli Air Force attacked Syrian targets in the Latakia area. They approached targets at low altitude from the Mediterranean Sea. The Syrians opened fire from the S-200 air defense system, but the Israelis covered themselves with the more massive Il-20, which was nearby. As a result, 15 Russians died.

Last time Israel inflicted strike on Syria on November 18, 2020. Before that, the Iranians сообщилиthat were placed on the Syrian territory of the Bavar-373, Khordad-15, Khordad-3 and Mersad air defense systems, as well as radar and other equipment to counter Israeli aircraft.

    Otherwise, the silence of the S-300 cannot be explained. In war and not avenge the death of their comrades, only cowards or traitors can! And I have long ceased to blame those who do not want to serve in our army.

      So why didn't they take revenge on the Krivoruk Syrian air defense forces?

        And letting them bomb is not revenge? Could at the same time fill up the Jews for balance! Why is it possible to kill Russians, but no Jews? If Israel did not violate international law, then our pilots would be alive. Guilty and have to answer!

    The betrayal of the allies and Russia is on the face, and when the traitors to the Russian Federation are in power, then the country is in danger. Scientists with the titles Delyagin, Glazyev and others directly point to the treacherous actions of the ruling in the Russian Federation in relation to citizens and the state, it looks like the son indicates that now his mother (motherland) is being raped and are not doing anything ... It's not time to build under banners of Minin and Pozharsky? ...

    Again an anonymous article.
    With anonymous info on IL-20.

    Magen claims that since that time, the aforementioned air defense systems have never been brought into combat readiness. He confirmed that the Syrians do not really use them and do not fire them at Israeli planes, since they simply cannot do this "without Moscow's permission."

    And how our media was flooded that everything, the Air Force to Israel is kapets ...

    No one can be trusted.

    Explanation about the "cover" only for shirnarmass. When Konashenkov carried his blizzard, the specialists spat. Well, the simplest question is how could the IL be in the zone of fire? Who gave him the command to fly there? And if he was there before the fighters appeared who gave the command In fact, it was the criminal slovenliness of the Russian commanders and the absolute crooked-eyed and club-handed "allies" who began to beat at everything that was moving after the fighters had departed. ILu after they saw him. The Russian Ministry of Defense, by the way, did not hesitate to go for a direct forgery - he issued the marks of civil aircraft over Cyprus for the marks of Israeli fighters. The Israeli leadership did not argue - what is the point? The people in any case cannot be told the truth about such an outrageous case , and the specialists already know what the matter is. Cooperation is more important.

      Nathan. Don’t lie, Israel will notify the officer on duty of the RF Armed Forces in Syria one hour in advance, where they will strike (so that the RF Armed Forces do not exist). In the case of the IL-20, the Israeli siren tricked into pointing out the attacks in the north, as the attacks were in the west of Syria. The Russian officers on duty sent the IL-20 from north to west, to land.There, in the west, 4 Israeli F-16s attacked and left, but one stayed close and waited for the IL-20 to appear in the desired sector and then SIMULATE the attack (without striking !!!), the Syrians, who already had an Air Force attack, reacted and fired the S-200, which went to the F-16, but the S-200 homing found a larger IL-20 target and re-aimed at it ... This was the calculation Israelis to blame the Syrians, but the monitoring of the space of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria was quite complete and the whole course of events came to light, which the Israelis did not expect. You can verify by the materials of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation ... All attempts to fill in lies only indicates an unprincipled deceit ...

        Don't talk nonsense, it hurts. There is no need to repeat the Konashenkovskaya blizzard. Documentary evidence was brought to Moscow that there were no planes at the time of the strike on the IL-20. But there was no point in arguing with the Soviet leadership - such criminal slovenliness cannot be made public In any case. It was said, cooperation is more important. Yes, and also - for the S-200 missile to re-target, it needs to be re-targeted, because it needs illumination. Konashenkov's lies are designed for laymen in this area.

    These Armenian, easily destroyed by Turkish or Israeli drones, S-300 have already established themselves as unnecessary and expensive junk.

    The Jews are already talking about this openly, and some of our fellow citizens are all "God's dew"))). Well, you cannot let them into management in Russia, you need to specifically punch up to the seventh knee and with the same knee in the ass in your washing, let them stir up among themselves ...
