Israeli bombs shot down by Russian air defense systems in Syria


Air strikes of the Israeli Air Force on the territory of Syria do not stop. Middle Eastern media report that on the night of January 21-22, 2021, Israeli aviation carried out another airstrike.


This time, the Syrian Air Force base and the adjacent area in the Hama province were attacked. Tel Aviv said it had struck Iranian targets at an airfield in the city of Hama, which is actively used to deliver military supplies from Iran. At the same time, from Damascus, they informed about three dead civilians who fell victim to being hit in a residential building by an American-made "high-precision" Israeli GBU-39 SDB bomb.

The Syrians clarified that thanks to the Russian-made Pantsir-C1 air defense missile system, it was possible to minimize losses by destroying in the air most of the Israeli ammunition aimed at Syrian soil. As evidence, photographs were published of the wreckage of downed Syrian air defense ammunition, in which experts easily recognized the GBU-39 SDB.


Israeli bombs shot down by Russian air defense systems in Syria

According to experts, Tel Aviv has stepped up air raids, taking advantage of the "transitional situation" in the United States. Over the past month, the Israeli Air Force has struck various targets in the Syrian provinces of Homs, Hama, Deir ez-Zor, Daraa and Damascus.

Most often, Israeli planes do not enter Syrian airspace, but release ammunition in the skies of neighboring Lebanon. The Israeli Air Force uses Jordanian airspace to strike the eastern and central regions of Syria.

On January 19, 2021, "unknown planes" attacked the base of the pro-Iranian forces near the city of Karbala (Iraq). Debris from GBU-39 was found at the site of the airstrike. Therefore, it is likely that the Israeli Air Force began to attack Iranian military facilities not only in Syria, but also in Iraq.

      Militarily, Russia is undoubtedly stronger than Israel. However, in Syria, it is very far from home and full-scale warfare is not beneficial to either Russia or the Jews - both for military reasons and (even more important) for political reasons. Therefore, everyone knows his own line and does not stand up for it.
      You can try to calculate the escalation of the conflict, when each side will act consistently increasing the "degree" of tension, but this is difficult due to a large number of different factors.

    When they finally begin to shoot down not destructive weapons, but their carriers (presidential thoughts - "hitting the decision-making centers", or presidential words do not mean anything ...) Amazingly given such a shame of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria, there are S-400s and more than once did not work on the aggressors, so they would close the willfulness and humiliation of the Russian Aerospace Forces in the eyes of the whole world ...

      After the first attempt to "work out the aggressors" of the S-400 in former Syria would have come to an end. Thank God that the Russian leadership, in contrast to some of the overly aggressive Russians, understands this. The note, by the way, is completely false -

      No official statements were made from the Israeli side. Congratulations to the author of the lie!
      According to objective evidence: as a result of the attack, five targets belonging to pro-Iranian militants and the Lebanese Hezbollah were destroyed. The deaths and injuries of civilians occurred as a result of the fall of the debris of the Syrian anti-missile missile on a residential building. The crooked Arab air defense men killed the wrong ones again.

        And after that, the end would come to you, or rather to your airfields with your Air Force, without which you are unlikely to be anything

        The training of the Israeli Air Force at the Russian base will end with the training through the territory of Israel and then you will have to look for a new place for permanent residence for another 300 years and it is not a fact that you will find one.

                    It's funny to hear how the Russian Federation is threatened by something that the Russian Federation can destroy with one blow of a sneaker. Israel does not need more than one ICBM Yars. One rocket and a skiff for patients with Russophobia. repeat

                        Understand that even taking into account the presence of some kind of nuclear weapon in your Israel, even without taking into account the missile defense and air defense systems of the Russian Federation, which, however, exist, the Russian Federation will withstand a nuclear strike on its territory and 15 megatons, just such a nuclear bomb was tested in the USSR in 1956. For the complete destruction of your Israel, one such warhead is more than enough am So I do not advise you to attack the Russian Federation and its bases. I'm not even talking about the fact that there have never been Jewish pogroms in the Russian Federation, but if you kill the Russians, everything may not change for the better for you. hi

      When will they finally begin to shoot down not destructive weapons, but their carriers (presidential thoughts - "hitting decision-making centers", or presidential words mean nothing ...)

      Iranian facilities are in Syria, Israel is against. What decision-making centers do you mean and what does Russia have to do with it?

      Such a shame is given to such a shame of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria, there are S-400s and have never worked against the aggressors, so they would close the willfulness and humiliation of the Russian Aerospace Forces in the eyes of the whole world ...

      In my opinion you only dishonor yourself with such nonsense. Russia has never promised protection to the Iranians in Syria.

    The photos of the wreckage look more like the remains of the one that struck the target rather than from the shot down ammunition.

    SANA in its repertoire is to pass off fragments of an exploded ammunition as downed. However, not the first time. They have already hammered, according to them, rockets onto the train. True, they never showed it. Because they are secret.

    There is a set of nonsense that goes from note to note, from comment to comment.
    1. The statement that "Tel Aviv declares", although the leadership is authorized to declare something is in Jerusalem.
    2. Why aren't Russian S-400s shot down? - And from what fright should you? The Russian Armed Forces are not the target of attacks by the Israeli Air Force, the purpose of the stay of the Russian military is not to clarify relations between neighboring belligerent countries.
    3. Targets are attacked from Jordanian airspace. - Not attacked. We have a peace treaty with Jordan and Israeli aircraft do not enter Jordanian airspace
    4. Syrian air defenses do not open fire on Israeli aircraft in Lebanese airspace. Nonsense! Even how they open when they have time to do it

        Before bombing Russian bases, if I were you, I would think about what will remain of Israel if the Russian Federation responds with a strike on your territory. I think that a little, if not nothing at all, except debris and ash.

    I forgot one more point that regularly pops up during the next discussion of Israeli attacks on facilities in Syria. Hotheads immediately appear demanding to shoot down Israeli planes. In response, Israeli hotheads claim that in this case Israel will attack Russian bases.
    Is it possible to simulate the exchange of blows?
    Any sober-minded person on both sides understands the extreme undesirability of the conflict. For many reasons, and the main one is WHY? Quite good mutually beneficial relations have developed between Russia and Israel. Israel is perhaps the only Western country that does not support sanctions and refrained from condemning Crimea. There is a visa-free service between us, Putin is received in Israel with emphasized respect, we have a close position on the results of World War II, more than a million Israeli citizens know Russian, we have a close and understandable mentality, basic culture. The Russians are united with the Syrian Arabs ... only by geopolitical interests. At the concert dedicated to the liberation of Palmyra, the Syrians present looked ridiculous and looked at the symphony orchestra with bewilderment (not to mention the fact that no one there knew who Gergiev was).
    What happens if the Russian air defense system does shoot down an Israeli plane?
    Options are possible. First, the nature of the event will be clarified at the diplomatic level. If this is a one-time incident, they will forget about it, if this is a new reality in which the RF Armed Forces are attacking the Israelis ... this is difficult to imagine and, God forbid, this happens, both sides will find themselves in an extremely undesirable, difficult situation.
    It is extremely difficult to assume that the Israeli Air Force is attacking Russian targets, but the likelihood of an escalation of attacks on Iranians, militias and Syrians is high. This escalation of actions will undermine Russia's desire to calm the region and restore Syrian statehood. By and large, all parties to the conflict (including Iran) are not interested in this, unless Turkey can gain something on this. Maybe Kurds.

    - The Turks shot down your planes (Su-24M and Su-25), killed your aviators on the ground and in the sky - so what ?! The "peace, friendship, chewing gum" continues! In the primordial Russian zone of influence, the Armenian Karabakh was raided - so what ?! They overwhelmed a Russian helicopter there, killing two pilots - so what ?!
