Iranian missile attack on Tel Aviv simulated in Israel


On Thursday, February 4, the US and Israel launched joint military exercises to counter a possible missile attack on Tel Aviv. According to IDF spokesman Avihai Adraya, the exercise, dubbed Juniper Falcon (Juniper Falcon), is being conducted with the participation of the Israeli Air Force and Air Defense Force and the United States Armed Forces.


During the maneuvers, the military simulated various situations, including a missile attack on Israeli territory from Iran. The Israel Defense Forces noted that the main tasks of the exercises were to ensure the security and combat readiness of the Israeli forces in repelling all kinds of threats from neighboring states, as well as expanding the strategic cooperation of the US and Israeli armies.

Amid the intensification of Iranian nuclear development, threatening the security of the Jewish state, the head of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee of the Israeli Knesset, Avi Dichter, who was once the head of the Shin Bet security service, called on the country's authorities to take certain actions to prevent the IDF forces from possible strikes from the Iranian armed forces. forces.

Earlier, Iranian Armed Forces spokesman Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi threatened to "wipe Israel off the face of the earth" in the event of its attack on Iran - these words were said in response to the statement of the Chief of the Israeli General Staff, Lieutenant General Aviv Kochavi, that the Israelis were developing plans to counter Tehran's nuclear ambitions.

    Iranian missile attack on Tel Aviv simulated in Israel

    Earlier, a representative of the Iranian Armed Forces, Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi, threatened to "wipe Israel off the face of the earth" in the event of its attack on Iran

    - How Iran will strike at Israel ??? - After all, he (Iran) will have to shoot through the territories of several states ... - And this is very "fraught" ...
    - While

    The Israel Defense Forces noted that the main tasks of the exercises were to ensure the security and combat readiness of the Israeli forces in repelling all kinds of threats from neighboring states, as well as expanding the strategic cooperation of the US and Israeli armies.

    - With such a "strategic cooperation of the armies of the United States and Israel" ... - The United States and Israel can very easily "simulate various options" and "substitute" states neighboring with Iran ... - allegedly Iran "by mistake or deliberately attacked their territory "and thus provoke a conflict between Iran and neighboring states ...
    - Why go far for "an example" ... - for everyone is still quite fresh ... - "memorable case" when the Israeli Air Force is very easy and simple on September 17, 2018. our Il-20 of the Russian Aerospace Forces from the air group of the Russian Air Force was "framed" ... - under the fire of the Syrian air defense in Syria ...
    - And to "substitute Iran" ... - it will be much easier for Israel ...

      There was no set-up on the part of the Israelis, this was very clearly proved by the Israeli representatives headed by the Air Force Commander Aviram Norkin, who presented an objective analysis of the incident to the Russian side at the same time. The fact that the Russian Defense Ministry did not consider it possible to take into account the explanations of the Israelis is already a purely Russian problem. Anyone more or less familiar with aviation or air defense can understand the complete absurdity of the Russians' statements about the guilt of Israeli pilots in the death of the Il-20 from a missile fired by the Syrian S-200 air defense system.
      Well, as for the joint American-Israeli exercises to repel the Iranian aggression, their conduct is conditioned by the policy of expansion and incitement of conflicts in our region carried out by the Iranian leadership. The military power of Israel and its readiness to confront the Iranian threat is the main factor in deterring the Shiite obscurantists from Tehran in their quest for dominance in the BW.

              Where did you find excuses in my comments? laughing I am not a serviceman of the IDF or an employee of the special services, it is not my responsibility to fight Iran, and those who are involved in ensuring the security of the State of Israel and protecting its citizens from the hostile actions of the Ayatollah regime do their job successfully at a high professional level - thanks to them my country lives and is developing. The tales of military power are, rather, animated clips of the Russian agitprop. Happy viewing! laughing
              P.S. I am interested to ask: do you write "israel" with a small letter due to insufficient literacy, or are you trying to indicate your attitude towards this state in this way? However, the question is purely rhetorical ... lol

        This is not an explanation. If an Israeli general said, then everyone should take his words on faith? Russia did not accept the explanation because it has different data. Israel violated the agreements with Moscow on flight safety in the region. Specifically - provided incorrect information

          You are mistaken, Bakhtiyar, the explanation is extremely clear, supported by the data of objective control. At the time of the launch of the rocket that hit the Russian plane, the Israeli fighters were already at 250 km. farther south, over the water area of ​​the Haifa Bay, therefore, there can be no question of any attempt to "hide behind" the Russian Il-20. Contrary to the obviousness and common sense, the leadership of the RF Ministry of Defense did not want to accept the version of the Israelis, exposing themselves in a very unattractive light. Well, God will judge them ...

            The fact is, when discussing the incident with A. Norkin, Russia presented its control data, which indicated that the Israeli aircraft remained over Lebanon for another 20 minutes. And Russia did not accept Israel's explanation. Plus, the Israeli side did not explain why the 2015 agreements were violated.
            So we have two pictures of OBJECTIVE control. Why did you decide that the Israelis are more OBJECTIVE?
            I somehow do not really believe in the Tel Aviv version. But that's my opinion. Both Shoigu and Konashenkov stated that Russia has other data.
            So to paraphrase

              Allegations of the Russian side that Israeli planes remained in Lebanese airspace for an extra 20 minutes. after missions are laughable - why would pilots put themselves at risk for so long? The pilots hit their targets and went back to base, this is a common practice.

              Jews have always been gentlemen, especially when it comes to saving human lives, so the claim that the Israelis cold-bloodedly exposed the Russian military to attack is sheer nonsense.

              I do not believe the Israeli version, for the simple reason that striking the territory of a neighboring state is a crime in itself.

              What to believe is a purely personal matter, and strikes on the territory of a neighboring state are not delivered for pleasure, they are caused by the need to ensure the security of their own country.

                You believe your data. I believe the data of the Russian Ministry of Defense. They also provided objective control data. And not from the Syrian air defense system, but from the Russian.
                The second point you constantly miss and for which Israel has not given an explanation. Israel did not report the strike. Moreover, he gave the wrong area. That is why the Russian plane ended up there.
                I asked you not to refer to prevention. Hitler also justified his actions by the need to defend his country. Do not stand on the same board with him.
                I will simply not say anything about gentlemen. Submitting someone else's plane under attack is not a sign of a gentleman.

                  the Israeli side initially informed that the strikes were planned to be carried out on a target in northern Syria, but in reality the attack was carried out in the western province of Latakia. "Misleading by an Israeli officer about the areas where fighter strikes were delivered did not allow the Russian Il-20 to be taken to a safe area.", - said Konashenkov, noting that Russia was notified of the strike at the same time it began.

                  According to him, at 21:59 local time one of the Israeli fighters began a maneuver towards the coast of Syria, approaching the Il-20, which was making an approach, which was perceived by the calculations of the Syrian air defense forces for a new attack. At 22:03, the rocket hit a Russian plane, which began an emergency descent and fell, but after that the F-16 remained in the crash area for another 40 minutes. Assistance in the search was offered to the Russian side only at 22:53.

                  «We believe that the blame for the tragedy lies entirely with the Israeli Air Force and those who made a decision on this kind of activity, ”concluded Konashenkov.

                  Here one of two things - either did not report, or gave incorrect coordinates of targets. You will decide what exactly. wink
                  The Israelis immediately responded to the Russian accusations:
                  "Full and accurate facts are known to the professionals dealing with this issue in the Russian army. The data clearly indicate that the coordination worked on time, as it has been over the past 2,5 years. The Israeli Air Force did not hide behind anyone's plane even at the moment of the Syrian strike. missiles on the Russian plane were already in Israeli airspace. "
                  It is clear to any sane person that the Israelis are in no way involved here, there was insufficient coordination on the part of the leadership of the Khmeimim base flights with the crew of the destroyed Il-20 and the curvature of the Syrian air defense operators. But the Russians, according to the ingrained tradition, are trying to look for the culprit on the side and are not going to admit their own mistakes. So much the worse for them ...

                    The strike message arrived 1 minute before the strike. And should be submitted in advance. The area was also incorrectly indicated. That is why the Russian plane ended up there.
                    So everything is quite certain.
                    We can exchange links endlessly. According to Russian links, the Israeli side is guilty. You can argue otherwise.
                    One cannot believe at all in the gentlemen of Israel.

                      Forget the pathos of gentleness ... Just try to answer yourself a few questions.
                      1. Why did the Israeli planes stay in the Syrian air defense zone for another half hour? Is this their kind of entertainment?
                      By the way, they bombed not from Lebanese territory, but from the airspace over the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Lebanon. When bombed from Lebanon, the planes leave under the cover of Anti-Lebanon within a couple of minutes after the attack.
                      2. How is it technically possible to hide behind another aircraft? If there is elementary knowledge of how the air defense system works, then Konashenkov's statements look like nonsense designed for very naive people.
                      3. Is the Israeli side interested in breaking the existing system of relations with Russia in actions against facilities in Syria?

                        Well, if the general and the minister of defense are talking nonsense, then what else to talk about ...
                        Answer another question, why the warning did not come in advance, but a minute before the attack? Why was the area of ​​action indicated correctly?
                        The Israeli side is vitally interested in weakening the positions of Syria and Iran. And relations with Russia are secondary here.

            This is from Wikipedia. You can also look for more detailed information on the Internet. But I'm not interested in this. I do not believe the Israeli version, for the simple reason that striking the territory of a neighboring state is a crime in itself. Do not refer to prevention. It is not recognized as a legal defense measure.

            At a briefing by the Russian Ministry of Defense on September 23, 2018, the chronology of events leading to the crash of the Il-20 aircraft in Syria was provided. The Defense Department confirmed that the Israeli Air Force was to blame for the downed plane. "The presented objective data indicatethat the actions of the Israeli fighter pilots, which led to the deaths of 15 Russian servicemen, speaks either of their unprofessionalism, or, at least, of criminal negligence, "said Major General Igor Konashenkov, spokesman for the Russian Defense Ministry.

            On September 24, 2018, another briefing was held, at which provided photographs from the air surveillance system of the Russian S-400 complex located in Syria. According to this data, the Israeli F-16 was in close proximity to the Russian Il-20., which could lead to the switch of the S-200 missile homing head to a more radio-contrast target

      The air space, if it can be called so in this case, of this or that state is limited in height. After launch, medium-range ballistic missiles enter near space.

    Carrying out the joint maneuvers described in the publication pursues, in my opinion, several goals:
    1. to demonstrate to the international community that the change of administration in the United States did not affect the military cooperation between Jerusalem and Washington;
    2. to show Iran that any attempts to attack Israel will result in a coordinated strike by the Israeli and US armies on its territory;
    3. to work out in the course of military maneuvers options for repelling possible Iranian aggression.
    4. to calm down the Arab countries opposing Iran.
    I do not rule out that if Tehran intensifies the development of its own nuclear weapons, preemptive large-scale measures may be taken against it. Differing from the targeted liquidation of iconic figures of the Iranian nuclear project and special operations to slow it down.

    1 Iran will strike only in case of an attack on Iran.
    2 preparation for the strike will not go unnoticed, which means that an attack on Iran will be leveled by an instant counterstrike by Iran, which will make an attack on it meaningless.
    3 and most importantly: Iran's massive counterstrike will practically destroy Israel's military potential and 21 American military bases.
    4 convulsive military exercises of Israel and the United States once again show that Iran's military potential is sufficient to destroy Israel as a state regime as a whole, which will be accompanied by the elimination of tens of thousands of its representatives ..

      It seems to me that there are some very vulnerable points in your comment. Among them:
      - Your considerations are not in the form of assumptions, as they should be, but submitted in the form of a peremptory statement. In my humble opinion, you are expressing your personal position, and not the official position of the Russian Federation, or at least the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation. And this point needs to be discussed. In order not to look not solid;
      - You talk about something that never happened, but it seems to you that it will be so. Such, not based on anything, statements who just did not make about our small victorious country. Including the USSR, the same Iran, the countries of the socialist camp, superior in all respects to Israel, the Arab states (except for the ability to fight, of course). Now here you are - the most terrible, I would say, a mortal threat to Israel. About which, I'm afraid, he will not even be told of offense and does not know. So what ? Soviet pilots once risked having a double superiority (24 versus 12) to engage in battle with Jewish pilots. After six minutes they fled. Five did not make it in time. The air regiment was withdrawn from Egypt the next day. Iran regularly receives from the Jews in full. These are facts. And you have emotions;
      - characteristic of your posts is the lack of specifics. Instead: Convulsive military exercises .. "You should write poetry chief ..."

    Well, if the general and the minister of defense are talking nonsense, then what else to talk about ...
    Answer another question, why the warning did not come in advance, but a minute before the attack? Why was the area of ​​action indicated correctly?
    The Israeli side is vitally interested in weakening the positions of Syria and Iran. And relations with Russia are secondary here.

    Yes, they are talking nonsense and not for the first time (partly this is their job) - or do you not know about it? I can give you a few examples. Offhand - Klnashenkov chalked a blizzard about the 29m and su-25 in the case of the Boeing over Ukraine, Shoigu liberated the territory of Syria three times, several times he spoke of complete victory.
    About the warning - it was 10 minutes before the attack, it's documented. The attack area was listed as NORTH Syria without localization. IL-20, instead of landing, made a circle approaching the sea.
    You are not trying to answer the questions I have asked. Koshenkov must not tell the truth, he must follow orders.

        ... and with deep
        grateful to Israel.

        For what a Baku citizen can thank Israel ... You are probably laughing?

        I won't tell you for the whole of Odessa, as it is sung in the famous hit ... But in general, Azerbaijanis have traditionally always treated Jews well. So are the Georgians. Jerusalem and Baku have established economic cooperation. Israel gets 40% of oil from Azerbaijan. Through Georgia and Turkey. Israel has supplied to Azerbaijan, according to Aliyev, arms worth $ 5 billion. This is a fantastic figure for Baku. Including LORA rockets, drones. This is what is known. They played a significant role in the latest Azerbaijani-Armenian confrontation. The largest skyscrapers in the colors of the Israeli flag were blossomed in Baku. Almost all private Azerbaijani cars were decorated with Israeli flags. Israel not without reason counts on Azerbaijan as a springboard for operations against Iran. With which Baku is openly hostile. So: no, I'm not laughing.

    Something like this..

    Persians to butt with Israel today - as Chapaev with a saber against a tank, don't you understand such a simple truth? lol

    Only in your wretched illusions ..
    If the Persians only have checkers, then why are you so afraid of them and pray America to be substituted under Iran ?!
    Cognitive dissonance in your flawed words.

    It can be seen how they are afraid of Iran ... they are preparing to die beautifully and heroically ... belay

    Yes, they do not prepare at all, but regularly send the Persians to the next world. Therefore, there is no time to prepare.)

    Thousands of Zionists and Amers have already been killed in the ranks of the ISIS, where they heroically taught terrorism to the Syrian opposition ..
    Now the Zionists are preparing for the same .. hi
