Israel has the full arsenal needed to take on Hezbollah in Lebanon and eliminate the Iranian threat in Syria, the outgoing IDF Northern Command chief boasted, warning Damascus against using S-300s to protect its sovereignty.
“If our freedom of movement is threatened, we will remove the threat. We know how to do that,” General Yoel Strick told Ynet News, adding that Israel will soon introduce “advanced weapons systems” to ensure it can continue to violate neighboring states’ airspace and to strike targets in Syria with impunity
If the Syrians employ Russian S-300s against our planes, and we take them out, it will be seen as a legitimate move on our part.
While acknowledging that such a drastic move might damage Tel Aviv’s relations with Moscow, Strick expressed hope that it wouldn’t come to that.
Moscow had supplied the Arab Republic with S-300 air defense systems following the downing of a Russian Il-20 reconnaissance plane with 15 airmen on board in mid-September, during an Israeli raid.
Since then, Israel has been staging its intrusions via Lebanon, where the Jewish State is trying to keep Hezbollah in check.
Hezbollah is inseparable from Lebanon as a country, due to the militant group’s strong political presence, the general argued.
Thus, he claimed, “if it were up to me, I would recommend declaring war on Lebanon and Hezbollah” – not out of bloodlust but only to thwart the group’s alleged plot to “invade”Israel.

Some inaccacurate missiles from Gaza and Israel was forced to ask for a ceasefire. Israel is boasting but understand quite quickly when one shows strength. Sadly,most probably Russia will impede strikes on Israel. Syria should shoot down an israeli A/C and then be ready, if retaliation, with a whole load of their most accurate and powerful missiles. Israel will easaly understand.

Syria already launched 55 rockets vs Israeli army in Goland and around in response of T4 attacks…of course if Hezbollah, Iran and Syria launch their missile …Israel will collapse in few days..as population cannot be hide in shelters more than a week…but USA play the last card to save terrorist in Idlib and boost SDF.. and Syria and Russia know it and prefer not to open a new front!..Gaza rockets is enough to revenge israeli strikes!

+++ “of course if Hezbollah, Iran and Syria launch their missile …Israel will collapse in few days..as population cannot be hide in shelters more than a week” => With a 7 nations army, in 1948, the Arab League thought it’d be a promenade to subdue Israel. In 1973, Egypt+Syria, placed in context vs. Israel were far more powerful than Iran is now. And you seem not to get that, had it been up to Moshe Dayan alone, Damascus, Cairo, Aleppo and Alexandria would still be radioactive even today and for a few more centuries. If they consider they can’t control… Read more »

=> Considering what Hamas and PIJ received in exchange for their rockets, I’m not sure that IDF “asked for a ceasefire”

The Israhelli chicken-hawk turds can’t even win against Hamas. If they want to sign their own death warrant, fine! The Tribe likes to talk big, but without Uncle Shlomo backing them up, they’re just a race of p*ssy-a*s weasels.

Yet another exercise in futility by IZ, they have been trying to destroy them ever since they were placed in Syria, and Syrians did not place them there for good looks? If IZ continues its policy of perpetual war crimes against its neighbours it is inevitable that S300 will be used against them. Think twice IZ US cannot give you unlimited protection anymore

“Moscow also warned Israel that it will suppress all satellite navigation, radars and communications systems of combat planes over the Mediterranean Sea if their maneuvers threaten Russian forces.” => advanced INS makes SatNav useless while terminal guidance is relayed by EOST/IRST => Russian SatNav jamming doesn’t affects GLONASS. Israel can jam GLONASS => Give a call to Thales, they’re the only ones with 2nd generation QWIP. No need for radar with it. They also have passive radar systems working in the same frequency ranges as wifi, cellphones, land digital-TV, sat-dishes, this can even make radar jammers being used as the… Read more »
