For the first time, Russia deployed strike and fighter aircraft on the border with Israel


The Russian Aerospace Forces have transferred to the Syrian air base T-4, located between Palmyra and Homs, a link of fourth-generation multi-role fighters MiG-29. The purpose of the transfer of aircraft is to patrol the Palmyra-Abu-Kemal and Palmyra-Deir ez-Zor roads and adjacent regions.


Thus, Moscow is significantly building up its military grouping in Tifora to more effectively counter the threats.


It is likely that the transfer of the MiG-29 to the T-4 is connected with the situation in Hasek (fights between Kurds and jihadists of the Islamic State, a terrorist organization banned in Russia) and the activation of IS units in the Syrian desert.

Meanwhile, Russian military aviation, along with Syrian counterparts, conducted patrols over the Golan Heights and in the southern zone. Su-34, Su-35 and AWACS aircraft A-50, operating from the airfield in Khmeimim, took part in the operation from the Russian side, MiG-23 and MiG-29 from the Syrian side, taking off from the airfield in Damascus. The Russian Aerospace Forces practiced air strikes, while the Syrians provided the necessary support. It is noted that Russian aircraft have not yet operated so close to the Israeli border.


In addition, the Russian Aerospace Forces, together with the Syrian government army, began to practice joint night flights using lighting ammunition. The purpose of such operations is the timely detection of enemy firing points and terrorist training camps and their destruction with the help of air and artillery strikes.

So, on the night of Friday to Saturday, January 22, aerial reconnaissance was carried out in the Jabal Zawiya region. Near the city of Kansafra, the planes found two firing positions equipped by terrorists with multiple launch rocket systems, which were later destroyed by artillery installations of government troops.

    If they fly close to Israel, then this may please Iran. Just after the visit of its head to Moscow.

        Even if we assume such a fantastic development of events, you should first read the CSTO Charter. Because one gets the impression that you have not read a single line from it, and generally have little idea of ​​what the CSTO is.

          There are so many things going on in the world right now that used to be science fiction.

            used to be a fantasy

            For example, will the Martians land and smash America to smithereens? Or will the Armed Forces of Ukraine capture Moscow? No need to get away from reality
            You, too, read the Charter of the CSTO.

        That's why they don't accept it. Yes, the Iranians themselves are not ready for such a step. They have enough problems in Yemen, in the SAR.

      Dancing, not kissing. They fly, but they don’t use ammunition. An Iranian is not a stupid person, he understands everything.

    between the lines comes out - Russian aviation helps Israel?

    Because it kills terrorists near the borders, but about countering the bombing of Jews - no, no.

      The Russian command did not withdraw from the agreement with Israel of 2015. As can be seen from the events, the Aerospace Forces do not interfere in the military clashes between the IDF and the SAA, with Iranian formations.

        It's right. The Jews have an official war with Syria.

        Therefore, "between the lines"

          It is more expensive to start full-scale hostilities with the IDF. For all participants, for the Iranians, for the Russian Aerospace Forces, for the Syrians. worries have increased on the borders of two military districts at once, and two fleets. The Iranians keep the most combat-ready units in Syria. The IDF has a temporary truce with Hezbolons.
          The IDF is in an operational advantageous position. The proximity of the theater of operations. It can also hit from sea directions, without receiving an adequate rebuff. There are no Iranian forces in the Mediterranean Sea.

    MiG-23 as a cover aircraft is so-so ...

    Russian military aviation, together with Syrian colleagues, patrolled the Golan Heights

    what line did you fly? Israelis and Syrians have very different ideas about the border in the Golan

      Do not hesitate, Russians and Syrians flew exclusively over the territory of the SAR, without making attempts to cross the borders of Israeli airspace - it is fraught ... And the tasks of the Russian Aerospace Forces do not imply a confrontation with the Israelis, the Russian military contingent in Syria has other priorities.

    Hello. How is the holiday in the Maldives? It got really boring, but the gunnerminer left to work for you worked here day and night. He drove away planes from the Israeli border.
