Israel Air Force raid on Latakia: what came under attack


On the night of December 28, the Israeli Air Force carried out another air raid on a container terminal in the port of Latakia, located just 20 km from the Russian Khmeimim airbase in the SAR. Israeli pilots used GBU-39 American guided high-precision gliding bombs and performed maneuvers in Lebanese airspace.


It should be noted that the GBU-39 has folding wings, which allows the ammunition to cover a distance of more than 100 km. The initial horizontal speed of the ammunition is equal to the speed of the carrier aircraft at the moment of separation of the GBU-39 from the standard BRU-61 / A beam holder.

The footage filmed and published by eyewitnesses on the Web shows how the ammunition explodes in the port and a fire starts. An Israeli air raid hit 2 barrels of fuel and lubricants that were in containers.


Traditionally, the Israeli side did not comment on the consequences of the air raid. However, Tel Aviv does not stop broadcasting that the Israeli Air Force is destroying "Iranian weapons" in Syria that could threaten the Israelis.


We remind you that the previous air raid on the port of Latakia took place on the night of December 7. Then the Israeli aircraft destroyed containers with food, personal hygiene items and other humanitarian supplies. Note that Damascus has repeatedly promised to end the use of the Lebanese airspace by Israeli warplanes.

    I wonder if other countries take it as a rule to destroy targets they don't like from the air in third countries, what will the "world community" say to this? Or, what is allowed to Jupiter ... And who then appointed Israel - Jupiter?

      The problem there is that the attack is taking place over Lebanon, due to the mountain range that obscures the radar's field of view and allows strikes from high altitudes while in the shadows. There can be only one help here - AWACS patrolling, constant. At the same time, the Israelis can see perfectly and through local agents know about all movements of large objects. It is impossible to prevent Israel from using Lebanon. Just like getting him out of the Gaza Strip. To do this, we need to wage a full-fledged war, for which Syria has no possibilities.

      The interception of gliding bombs is already carried out with a high degree of efficiency, but it is impossible to ensure 100% interception and the cost of such efforts exceeds the cost of the attack. Therefore, an attack of 20-30 GBU-39 guarantees a breakthrough of 3-5 bombs to the target, and given their accuracy and the nature of targets (depots), this provides some effect.

    Just yesterday, in an article on VO, they enlightened that Syria and Iraq, as they declared war on Israel in the 48th, did not finish.

    So what was the C3 and C300 promoted 400 years ago, how is it, 20 km away? do not interfere, and perhaps correctly.

      Radar observation and guidance of the S-400 air defense system and the C-300 air defense system at low viewing angles have a range of about 50 km. The earth is round. As the editor-in-chief of the magazine "Arsenal of the Fatherland" said, retired colonel A. Murakhovsky. Air defense covering such strategic objects as the port It should be comprehensive. Like the air defense of Hanoi or Haiphong in the early 1970s, in Vietnam. This theater lacks the most important component of air defense - air defense fighters controlled by the operators of the AWACS and U. It is somewhat naive to rely only on ground air defense. The enemy is aware of the location of its objects. Especially about the radar. And air defense fighters can attack flights and squadrons unexpectedly, from all heights and directions. And anywhere. They are easy to redirect from direction to direction. These lessons have not been learned since 1973, since 1982.

              The practice of Hel Hawir in the local theater of operations, from 1967 to 2021, shows that continuous combat training of reconnaissance forces, target designation, crews, and operational training of headquarters is of great importance, and even low altitudes are not an obstacle to the main task.

                  The Russian air defense is just a fragment of the Soviet air defense. The Soviet air defense had air defense armies, air defense corps, numerous companies of RTR. As a result of the landslide reduction in 2008-2012, the Russian air defense has a shortage of officers and warrant officers in several thousand. As in the tale about Malchish Kibalchish. Cartridges and shells. there are, but there are no fighters.
                  For more than 6 years of the war, a fair amount of experience has been accumulated with the Russian air defense system.

              Safe from a height for the crew. laughing The height of the guaranteed destruction of the target by FAB, corrected, guided, homing ammunition, up to 3 thousand meters. Above 3 thousand m, the probability of defeat is reduced by about a third. Over 5 km, the probability is slightly higher than 0.2. The number of ammunition, the number of approaches to the target plays a role. manned aviation.

              Therefore, the instructions for the use of MANPADS indicate the main task of the calculation: not to shoot down aircraft, but to force their crews to use ammunition from heights of over 3 thousand meters in order to reduce the likelihood of hitting the protected object.

                This means that the "crew" flies at a distance of 30 km, at an altitude of 3 tm. Do you think the "rounding of the earth" will prevent the C300 / 400 from being knocked down by this "misunderstanding"?)

                  4 bombs at a distance of 80-100 km. All bombs hit their targets.

                  This will mean the following: The enemy crew will arrive at the calculated launch point of the ammunition at a minimum height, invisible to the S-300/400 air defense system radar. Immediately before launch, it will use electronic warfare (REP) means. Own or from an escort aircraft. Will change altitude for a short time. And it will launch or dump ammunition. Changes the altitude again and leaves the air defense zone at the minimum altitude. For guaranteed processing of target movement elements, the radar calculation requires at least 3 minutes. An experienced crew will have a couple of minutes of time to maneuver and use ammunition. Which is what they do. This is one of the options. Safe for the calculation of air defense systems. They can carry out a strike, but with preliminary reconnaissance of the radar position, followed by the destruction of the radar, or launchers, control modules.

        When maneuvering in order to strengthen the cover of battalions conducting counterattacks against an enemy that has wedged in, an anti-aircraft subunit moves to a new starting (firing) position on a signal from a higher launcher along a previously reconnoitered and prepared route. In order to withdraw anti-aircraft subunits from possible enemy strikes after repelling an air attack or prolonged work (3-4 hours) in the occupied position, the main positions are changed to spare ones. The occupation and change of positions is carried out secretly, in conditions of limited visibility. When the covered battalions retreat, anti-aircraft subunits move from line to line, occupy starting (firing) positions with maximum use of the protective and camouflaging properties of the terrain and continue to carry out a combat mission, firing from a place or on the move.

    If the Syrian air defense dares to shoot down the aircraft and ammunition of Hel Havir, this air defense will be left with embers. With all due respect to the power of the air defense of the former SAR.

    There are brave guys, you can't intimidate them with such trifles. Most likely, they simply do not succeed. No. what

    Tricky question. From what height from the round ground do you need to drop the bomb, what would it plan on the target?

    For a winged gliding bomb to fly 110 km, it must be dropped from a height of 11 km. And so on, the higher you drop, the farther it will fly away.

        This is physics and it is always fair, there is air defense, there is no air defense. The aerodynamic quality of these bombs is ~ 10, their planning range is the drop height multiplied by 10. Does the air defense have anything to do with it? This is a separate song.

    And here it is not a matter of accumulating skill, just small bombs, small and fast missiles, technical equipment given to the Syrians does not allow them to detect in time, aim in time and hit with sufficient guarantee. But in the press, they lie, as they have lied for all decades, you need to look at satellite images and videos that other Syrians from the surrounding places are making. From these photos and videos, it follows that all Israeli strikes reach their target, like these last two, in December.

    Calculation of the ZRKP Pantsir S will not save enough ammunition for such "goodies."

    The calculation of the Pantsir air defense missile system simply does not see them, they are made as inconspicuous as possible. And they fly fast. In addition, the microprocessors of the bombs build their trajectory in such a way that they flew most of the trajectory at maximum altitude, approaching at a sufficiently high altitude to the target, and then dive over the target - there most Russian air defense systems have a "dead zone" funnel, with a solution of about at 15 °. If a bomb or rocket hits this crater, then this air defense system will no longer grab it.

    Plus the massive use of electronic warfare (electronic warfare) by the crews of Hel Hawir, which causes increased consumption and overexpenditure of ammunition air defense missile systems.

    It is not always appropriate to use electronic warfare equipment at all - any use of them immediately unmasks a group of aircraft carrying out the attack.
    Here, for example, that unfortunate case when their own people shot down their Il-20: four Israeli F-16s dropped bombs from the Mediterranean Sea on targets in the Latakia region, planning GBU-39 bombs (they later found out from their fragments) were dropped from range of more than 100 kilometers from an altitude of more than 10 kilometers. After that, the bombs were planned for 10-11 minutes to the shore, to their targets, and the planes, after being dropped, immediately turned away and rushed home. The Syrian air defense came to her senses only 2 minutes after the bomb explosions and randomly fired at each other's missiles for another half hour. Then, for some reason, they drove the Il-20 into the sea (20-25 minutes after the explosion of the bombs) and there he was shot down. No Israeli planes had been there for half an hour.
    Naturally, in this situation, the use of electronic warfare equipment with the F-16 would be absolutely inappropriate.

      Two F-16s of the Israeli Air Force arrived from the Mediterranean and attacked four missile targets in the port of Latakia. As a result of the Israeli attack, the port infrastructure was slightly damaged, ”he said. "The Syrian air defense did not launch missiles at the planes attacking the port, because at that time a Russian army plane was landing at the Hamim airport near the city."

      As mentioned, and unusually, the Syrian state media did not report yesterday morning about the work of the air defense systems against the attack, which Damascus attributes to Israel. The attack was the second in less than a month at the port of Latakia, which is considered the main port of Syria. Khmeimim base, where the Russian military is stationed, also hosts state-of-the-art S-400 air defense systems, and journalists and Syrian residents expressed surprise that they were not involved in the attack.

      Syrian television reported yesterday that a fire broke out in the container storage area of ​​the port, and the intensity of the explosions damaged several homes, a hospital and several other businesses and tourist sites as a result of the attack. Firefighters worked for hours in the fire zone in the port to extinguish the fire, no casualties were reported.

      The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an opposition group based in the UK, said echoes of the bombings were heard throughout the city of Latakia and even in its Mediterranean suburbs. The explosions caused concern among residents of the city and the area. According to the monitoring center, several missiles hit the containers with weapons, but it is not known whether they were from Iran.

      According to the Syrian Observatory, the opposition organization Israel attacked Syria 2021 times during 29. The 29 attacks, according to the organization, hit 71 targets in Syria and killed 130 people, including five civilians and 125 militants in Syria. the Syrian army and its masters, its alliance with the terrorist organization Hezbollah and the Shiite militias controlled by Iran. The organization claims that this is a decrease in the number of attacks compared to last year, which is why, according to its data, there were 39 attacks. The Damascus area is reportedly the most attacked with 12 of the 29 reported attacks.

      Recall that in September 2018, a Russian Il-20 reconnaissance aircraft with 15 crew members was shot down. The plane was hit by Syrian anti-aircraft fire, and Russia was accused of launching anti-aircraft missiles following an Israeli attack in the Latakia region. An investigation published by Russia showed that the plane passed through Syrian air defense systems, and Moscow accused Israel of "irresponsibility" and the death of crew members.

      In a report submitted by the IDF in Moscow in English and Russian, the Syrian Air Force is said to have deployed several aviation batteries, which were then deployed throughout Syria. The batteries, according to the report, fired for over half an hour, even when Israeli fighters returned to base. The direction of fire, according to IDF maps provided to the Russians, left no room for doubt: there were many missiles of different types.

              Naturally, they should not have suffered because no one was aiming at them. But after all, no one interfered with the calculations of the S-400 to give target designation to the Syrian air defense, so that they did not fire "into the white light like a penny," but tried to hit at least the falling bombs and missiles. Until now, all the "data" from the results of the Syrian air defense forces should be "divided by 10". lol

    Hindered by tiny operational experience with surveillance radar

    You are saying some very strange things: the S-400 system has been around for many years, there are no children sitting at the remote controls, what makes you think that they have "tiny experience of operating it"? This is nonsense.

    ... a challenging operational environment

    The operational situation could not be simpler: one single pair of F-16s approaches from the sea and drops 110 bombs from a range of 16+ km. What is the "complexity" of the operational environment? It is simpler than polygon.

    ... a shaft of contradictory instructions from the higher command, who did not orientate themselves in the situation

    Well, what "shaft of instructions" in the middle of the night ?! At night, all the bosses sleep in deep sleep and the shift on duty make decisions on their own. Moreover, the Russians in Syria are warned at least 10 minutes before the strike that the strike will be delivered and they say without fail that this will not affect Russian facilities in any way.

    ... the absence of the AWACS and U complex at the disposal of the air defense missile system commander.

    And why would an air defense missile system commander need an AWACS aircraft against targets flying at an altitude of 10-12 kilometers? request

    It is too expensive to hit bombs and missiles with ammunition of the S-400 air defense system with expensive missiles.

    It's true. But giving target designation to "Armor", "Toram" and "Bukam" is just right. And you don’t need to spend your missiles.

    And the operator of the radar air defense missile system Pantsir S did not observe such ammunition.

    Naturally - his radar does not allow him. But what prevents you from putting an external IKO with the S-400 directly into the Pantsir's cockpit? Just stretch a thin cable?

    ESUTZ is not yet in service, so there was no exchange between Khmeimim's divisions.

    Who is stopping you from organizing the system? Only personal disorganization and indiscretion.

    The calculations of the air defense of the ship group were useless, due to the obsolescence of their equipment and the low level of combat training. Interaction between the naval air defense and the coastal defense has not been adjusted, until now, I do not even consider the Syrian air defense.

    The S-400 does not need any shipborne radar for help.
