BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 P.M.) – The outgoing Chief-of-Staff of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) Gadi Eisenkot told the New York Times this week that Israel enjoys both aerial and intelligence superiority over Syria.

According to Eisenkot (as quoted by the Jerusalem Post), Israel has “complete intelligence superiority in this area [Syria]. We enjoy complete aerial superiority. We have strong deterrence and we have the justification to act [against Iranian interests there].”

Eisenkot would add that Israel is “pushing them [the Iranians] in Syria they transfer their efforts to Iraq.”

Last night, the Israeli Air Force fired several missiles towards the Damascus International Airport area, prompting the Syrian military to activate their air defenses in a bid to repel the attack.

The Israeli missiles managed to hit a munitions warehouse near the Damascus International Airport, causing several explosions that could be heard throughout the capital city.

Had you any understanding how aerial warfare works, you’d get that the narrative of F-16s hiding behind the Il-20M was Russian bullshïtting! BTW, Il-20M is NOT a jet at all! SyADF only shot their SAMs AFTER the strikes which were done using GBU-39 “SDB” gliding bombs which range more than 110km… By the time the GBU-39 were on their targets with a subsonic gliding flight, F-16 which are double-supersonic were already far from their launching area since, in such cases, you drop’n’run! In fact, consider their speed, at the moment GBU-39 blasted their targets, F-16 already had more than enough… Read more »

Russian air defense is real bullshit or Putin allows those strikes ans does not allows Syria to retaliate witn their ground to ground missiles.

You get nothing : Syrian state is not concerned by strikes since these targey UNSC-banned Hezbollah’s armed branch and their IRGC backers. Russia warned Iran that their attitude towards Israel was intolerable (actually according to UN-Charter and Hague Convention) thus, since Hezb and IRGC fück with Israel, they have to assume consequences… Now when it comes to SAA, I’m not sure that Assad is willing to have Syria becoming the playground for a war against Israel that moreover, cannot be won, especially since half of Syria is already demolished. Lebanonisation of Syria is not in the interest of Syrian people.… Read more »
