BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:10 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Spokesperson for the IDF released footage of their forces destroying a Syrian air defense system in western Syria.

The video specifically shows an Israeli missile taking out a Syrian military SA-22 Greyhound Air Defense System that was deployed to repel the Israeli attack last night.

The Israeli forces also struck several other areas in western Syria, including the town of Kisweh, which is believed to have an Iranian presence.

While Israel maintains its forces were responding to an Iranian attack, the Syrian military has denied that the latter played any part in yesterday’s battle.

the system was not operatinal, soldier can be seen running to it perhaps alerted by sound of incoming missile but it was to late. Zionist cockroaches will be stomped out of Golan, long live Syria!

I can see the unit is not operational. These type of careless syrian soldiers are a liability and should be sacked with their regiment leads.

Why has Russia allowed the destruction of this air defense system ? Is this part of the agreement Putin-Netanyahu of this week ?

That is the final nudge the Russians need , to make up their mind , that Syria needs modern anti aircraft missiles. As it can be seen , the Syrian crew had moved aside , to avoid the incoming fire , except for one who ran back .

Looks like the one who knew how to shoot, tried to launch something. They better just drive it fast. So these guys if had S300 this would be the S300 on video.
If they were recharging the system, as stated, then how it happen to become a target? Was it constantly emitting from radars and not movable?

Sa-22 = Pantsir! It’s a modern system actually dedicated at intercepting such threats that has just been blasted!

So the camera was on the missile which was very evident. I’ve never seen that before. Is this a new innovation or is this just CGI ?

If this is real missile then it is easy target for Pantsir’s cannons. Combined rate of fire of these guns is up to 5 000 rpm. The missile was moving strait and slow.

SAA is taking the responsibility for the Iranian strike attempt as Israeli Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz threatened to ‘eliminate Bashar Al-Assad if he continues to allow Iran to operate’, this is obvious! Just fuking move IRGC to Deir-Ezzor and/or Idlib areas, there are still a lot of roaches to eliminate there and shot Khamenei’s mouth : his constant threats to destroy the Israeli state are pouring oil on the fire! But hey, what else to wait from the one who translated Sayeed Qutb in Farsi? His eathen rhetoric only makes Iran a target. It’s also very strange that he backs… Read more »

Seyyed Qutb was an inspiration for all political islam members in 60s and 70s.,not just takfiris … IRGC are fighting syrian branch of muslim brotherhood for years in syria.You know them as ahrar ash sham and nurid din zanki…..And muslim brotherhood is a complete sunni stablishment and has not any shia member,so please shut your mouse.
