BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 P.M.) – The disruption of GPS services have reportedly hit Iraq, Iran, and Syria, Israeli Army radio reported on Thursday.

This claim by Israeli radio comes just hours after Turkey, Cyprus, and the Greek islands were reported to have similar outages.

An Israeli radio correspondent stated on Thursday that the Russian forces at the Hmeimim Airbase are behind the disruption, adding that an Israeli security delegation is currently working with the European Union and the U.S. about possible actions to take. 

In response to the allegations, the Russian Ambassador to Israel said the claims were “fake news” and “can’t be taken seriously.”

Israel has been experiencing unexplained GPS disruptions in its airspace in the past month; however, this is the first time that Russia has been blamed for this.

When you don’t know something blame some one else for it!!

Or you look for supernatural stuff… Facing a severe water-crisis, Iran accuses Israel of stealing their clouds and organises huge collective prayers rallies… Meanwhile they jailed -and even tortured to death- several environmentalists since these highlighted the incompetence and mismanagement of water resources by the regime… Now, for this radio, IMHO, they surely learnt that Russia has moved their system (sorry, I don’t remember its name) that jams every sat-based navigation system but GLONASS in Syria then they conclude it’s the Russians… But this mobile system is way more acting at local level, in order to disturb the use of… Read more »

And Israeli Army radio is a radio like all the others with daftees running the radio “Good Morning Vietnam” style : don’t hope SIGINT or intelligence specialists to talk to them.

It’s interesting how GLONASS is running better than ever, thanks Vlad.

And Galileo, and Bei’dou too 😉 GLONASS can be jammed the same way too 😉 Just change a little the frequency of the jammer… Note that there is a Russian jamming system well know to be able to have presets to “attack” GPS, Galileo and the Chinese systems without touching GLONASS… But it’s a bit stupid : unless you face totally outdated western systems like 1st generation of JDAM, it’s useless! As soon as the 2nd generation, INS was added as a back-up, the 3rd gen replaced GPS by SatNav = GPS+Galileo+GLONASS+Bei-dou+ all sat-phones networks + barely all types of… Read more »

US has the capacity to limit GPS signal everywhere on Earth. They did it in Serbia when NATO attacked them…

Except it hits Greece, Israel, Cyprus, Iran, Iraq… Anyone can jam electromagnetic signals, all you need is to emit a more powerful signal on the same frequency! Moreover, all you will do is to pi$$ off civilians : GPS is the most commonly used civilian navigation system. It’s been a long time the militaries, especially western ones, have switched to stuff you can’t jam… In fact, when you’ll hear about a GPS guided bomb, it uses SatNav and always has an INS as backup… In fact, INS has so much improved that it now has the accuracy of early JDAMs… Read more »

USA did nothing in Serbia because 1999 nobody used GPS not even aircraft

Jamming GPS and especially military GPS would restrict the enemy’s targeting and bombing. If it was the Russians jamming GPS in that troubled part of the world then kudos to them. Rather they jammed it temporarily then blow up the satellites which may have the knock on effect of debris knocking out satellite TV and radio! Methinks the recalcitrant Israelis protest too much.
