The Israeli military reportedly used electronic warfare to suppress the Syrian air defenses radar installations in southwestern Syria.

The electronic warfare followed a reported missile attack by the Israeli Defence Forces on a strategic mountaintop area in southern Syria, which overlooks the occupied Golan Heights.

Damascus recaptured the area from the al-Nusra terror group last July; it now reportedly harbors an air defense base equipped with anti-aircraft batteries.

According to the state-run news outlet, Syria’s air defense forces thwarted the attack and intercepted a number of Israeli missiles.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or casualties, while the Israeli military has yet to comment.

Israel has repeatedly bombed the Syrian territory, claiming to have hit targets linked with Iran and Hezbollah.

Most recently, Syrian media reported about an Israeli attack on an airbase near the northern city of Homs, which killed at least one soldier and wounded two others, damaging an ammunition warehouse.

Israel said it came in response to a missile strike from Syria.

On 27 May, the IDF confirmed it had bombed a Syrian anti-aircraft battery that had earlier fired at one of its fighter jets.

Israel understands only the use of force. Even against Hamas they are seeking ceasefire after a few totally inaccurate missiles were fired. Israel is afraid of Hezbollah because they know what would happen if a single missile hurts Leabanon.
The real problem is Russia that, in my opinion , forbids any retaliation against the ” Chosen people”. Not allows the use of the S300. What a shame !

As a Palestinian, I can sympathize with your view. However, the Russians don’t deserve that kind of criticism because that’s not true. The S-300 is simply being evaded by Israeli aircraft. Remember – the Syrians shot down an F-16 last year with an S-200 and the Russians supplied the S-300 in response to the Israelis recklessness causing the death of their airmen, which means they authorize its use against Israel. The Russians also launch electronic defenses such as GPS jammers against hostile Israeli aircraft. They themselves will not target Israel unless attacked because they aren’t positioned to now have yet… Read more »

+++ “Syrians shot down an F-16 last year with an S-200″ >>> 1st Israeli F-16 shot down over 40 years and over 31-32 years of S-200 use by Syria… I call it incompetence… +++”and the Russians supplied the S-300 in response to the Israelis recklessness causing the death of their airmen” >>> Il-20M was shot down by Syrian air-defences… Russia had to find a plausible deniability : it was simply more convenient to blame Israel’s recklessness rather than SyADF incompetence : Russian public opinion would have pushed Putin into pulling out… S-300 was simply supplied since S-200, S-125 and S-75… Read more »
