BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:10 A.M.) – The Israeli Air Force allegedly used their new supersonic rampage missiles during their attack on the Syrian city of Masyaf this past weekend, the Defence Blog reported.

According to the Defence Blog report, this is the first time ever that the Israeli Air Force has used these rampage stand-off air-to-surface missiles during an airstrike on Syria.

Citing military analyst Babak Taghvaee, the Defence Blog reported that these supersonic rampage missiles are used to annihilate high-quality targets-

“The new missile is an accurate supersonic, long-range air-to-ground assault missile with a warhead, rocket engine and advanced navigation suit which allows for precision targeting at a very low mission cost compared to existing solutions,” the online publication stated.

While Al-Masdar cannot confirm the type of missiles used by the Israeli Air Force during the attack, a source from the Syrian military did state that the IAF used their F-16 jets to carry out the airstrikes.

The Syrian military source said the Israeli jets were spotted over northern Lebanon around 2:20 A.M. (local time), which was just minutes before they hit the city of Masyaf in western Hama.

He would confirm that the Syrian air defenses did not use their S-300 system, as their personnel are still training to use these anti-aircraft missiles.

I don’t think those S300 toys will ever be used against Isreal, Russia brought them to Syria out of anger…no one can dare attack an American partner Isreal , everyone knows the consequences, hence Russia will just watch as its friends are bieng pummelled by IDF.

Bheki : oh, you know, even with 7 armies falling on them at once, the Yahudis didn’t needed the help of any other army to kick bütts. Russia just sticks to UNSC decisions she has co-voted : Hezbollah has to desarm : UNSC Res.1701 Iran is prohibited from exporting/importing missiles or missiles parts without UNSC approval. For obvious diplomatic reasons, Russia is not acting at enforcing this but won’t prevent it to be enforced by others. It’s up to Iran and Hezb to comply with UNSC decisions so they won’t have their shipping or attempts at building illegal assembly lines… Read more »

You mean essentially two armies, in 73 right ? the entirety of the rest combined being less than 10% of the combined Syrian-Egyptian effort which did not numerically outweigh Israel massive structure. Collapse was imminent on both fronts until Golda & Dayan begged Kissinger for the biggest and most massive military airlift of the history of the USAF : Operation Nikel Grass. Hell they even had to mobilize El-Al, a civilian airliner ! The Bar Lev line fell in a matter of hours to the creativity of Soviet engineer and their brilliant idea of using high-pressure water canon to get… Read more »

I already debunked all the rest of your looping bullshit about Israel not having to follow any UN Resolution and having the sacred right to violate the UN Charter on its every paragraph, but let me rephrase your metaphoric bull as well. How about that story: You’re Ben, a brave jewish guy, who once broke guns blazing into Ali’s home, a Syrian local from the town, your neighbor at some point, kicked him out at gun point while killing half his family, bought a full inventory of guns while he got nothing of it the days after since he is… Read more »
