Late Thursday night, Israel – without warning or provocation – launched missiles into Syria. According to Syrian military sources, the attack was entirely defeated by Buk-M systems and not Syria’s much newer (and greatly publicized) S-300 systems. However, there are now signs emerging that certain parts of the advanced S-300 system may have been used to repel the attack.

Specifically, hints dropped by sources say that while no S-300 missiles were fired to intercept the Israeli projectiles, S-300 early warning and primary fire control radar units may have been used in detecting, tracking and guiding interception fire.

The Israeli missiles, which were ground-launched instead of air-launched, were in fact detected several minutes earlier than has been the case historically due to presence of advanced Syrian early warning radars atop Tal al-Hara (near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights) which allows for detection and tracking of very small air objects as far away as eastern Israel.

 

 

To clarify, the interception missiles fired by Syrian air defense were from the Buk-M system; the use of expensive S-300 missiles to down an artillery launched projectile is wasteful in terms of cost and is also simply unnecessary.

The Syrian military was able to reinstall advanced early warning radars (their type undisclosed) atop Tal al-Hara only in recent months after a major offensive against rebel forces and ISIS which lead to the complete liberation of southwest Syria.

There are suspicions that Russia may have assisted in the re-installation of such radar units atop the strategic mountain. The previous early warning radar system (prior to its decommissioning in 2014) was known as “Center-S.”

The final result of the Israeli attack:  All Israeli projectiles were intercepted; NONE hit their intended target.

According to a source from the Syrian military, their air defense units managed to shoot down all enemy missiles before they could reach their intended targets in rural Damascus.

 
 

In particular, the enemy missiles were targeting the Damascus Governorate town of Al-Kisweh, which has several warehouses and research centers.

A number of missiles were also shot down over the Al-Quneitra Governorate, the source added.

    And no justified retaliation from the other side?

    Now for the real news. Since the Russians set up the s-300s in Syria, Israel used long range artillery to flattened 15 Iranian positions in Syria. Israel has outmaneuvered the Russian terrorist axis yet again.

      Pics, or it didn't happen. At least photoshop some for me!

      You understand that this provides clear evidence that the F35As, even the ones converted by the Israelis up to reasonable spec, were not used...because they were not confident enough to use them and risk being shot down?

      BDA, pls.

      I read debka too. It's important to see when the Mossad chooses to update their site, chooses not to update their site, and what they choose to report on, on their site.

      I'm already thinking with nostalgia, back when Israel existed and people were fooled into believing 2,000 year old fairy tales. If Israel gets destroyed, so does the whole construct. Either they are invincible and the bible is credible, or they are not, and the bible is bullshite. There is no middle ground.

      I'm waiting patiently for this experiment to be run again, this time, I think Hezbollah's crazy chubby boy leader is right, "100,000 missiles are indefensible," and that's only from Lebanon.

      Maybe the US can give Israel 200,000 PAC3s, that can miss most of them, like they do against Yemeni missiles into Saudi Arabia...hitting the missile bodies, but missing the warheads that detonate anyways because they detach from the missile body in flight, derp.

    It appears that the s-300's have failed.

    Having worked in engineering, a second source or review, is very important during cutting edge work. We encourage Hal to have them. Yet we appreciate in his business, they cannot be disclosed or perhaps even referenced remotely. Time will bear this out.

    While seemingly a good thing that these attacks were thwarted, it only serves to raise the bar that needs to be crossed for Israel to do what it believes it needs to do to survive in the alligator infested swamp it lives in.

    According to a landmark, comprehensive study of all of Israel’s wars, by Zeev Maoz, Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Davis, former head of the Graduate School of Government and Policy and of the Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies at Tel Aviv University, and former academic director of the M.A. Program at the Israeli Defense Forces’ National Defense College:

    “. most of the wars in which Israel was involved were the result of deliberate Israeli aggressive design . None of these wars – with the possible exception of the 1948 War of independence – was what Israel refers to as Milhemet Ein Berah (war of necessity). They were all wars of choice . ” – Defending the Holy Land, pg. 35, (bold added)

    “I review a number of peace-related opportunities ranging from the Zionist-Hashemite collusion in 1947 through the collapse of the Oslo Process in 2000. In all those cases I find that Israeli decision makers – who had been willing to embark upon bold and daring military adventures – were extremely reluctant to make even the smallest concessions for peace . I also find in many cases Israel was engaged in systematic violations of agreements and tacit understandings between itself and its neighbors.” – Defending the Holy Land, pg. 40

    Israel has violated more UN resolutions than any other country. That includes Iraq under Hussein.

    Is there any source other than the Syrians discussing this incident?
