S-300

DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:25 P.M.) – An Israeli officer said on Wednesday that Israeli Air Force can definitely defeat the S-300 missiles recently supplied to Syria.

“The operational abilities of the air force are such that those (S-300) batteries really do not constrain the air force’s abilities to act”, Tzachi Hanegbi, the country’s regional cooperation minister and a non-voting member of its security cabinet, said.

“You know that we have stealth fighters, the best planes in the world. These S-300 batteries are not even able to detect them”, Hanegbi added, referring to F-35 Joint Strike Fighters.

Israel has been conducting air raids against positions it says they belong either to Iranian forces of Hezbollah group.

“We have clarified to the Syrians more than once that we will not step back from our commitment to prevent Iran’s entrenchment in Syria” he added.

“We were already forced, a few months ago, to destroy Syrian missile batteries, and I hope they won’t challenge us in the future”, Hanegbi commented in what can be seen as a padded threat to take action against the newly-supplied S-300 missile system.

Russia decided to provide Syria with the advanced S-300 air defense system after Israeli jets were held responsible for downing the IL-20 plane on September 18.

The Israeli Defense Forces denied the Russian claims, saying that the IAF did not hide behind any aircraft and that the Israeli aircraft were in Israeli airspace at the time of the downing of the Russian plane.

The IDF Spokesperson said that this incident showed the problems with giving advanced weapons to “irresponsible entities.”

Earlier, Israeli Defense Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, said that Israeli warplanes will carry on its strikes against positions in Syria despite of the fact that the Syrian Army is now in possession of S-300 air defense system.

yesterday, the first batch of S-300 missiles system was unloaded from Russian planes in the coastal airbase of Hmeimim.

We know they are sending the message to Russia that their systems are useless against them but I hope you are getting one thing clear that the Russians are silent.Meaning?

That these systems go to Syrian army, that Russians delivered as system 2 generations late since they field S-500 now and if Israelis demolish S-300, it may be very very bad advertising.

S-300 stills a 40 years old system, even if there are upgrades. The most impressive IADS ever was the one we delivered to Saddam in the 80’s : 3,700 SAMs, 7,000 AA-guns. Didn’t prevented Desert-Storm.

If US or Israelis feel at risk due to lo-freq radars, nonetheless S-300 but also S-400 can’t even see Rafale unless as close as 10-12km, so it’s not even an issue, we have no ongoing embargo to them, they can purchase.

“You know that we have stealth fighters, the best planes in the world.” => Nope. Rafale and F-22 are better. “These S-300 batteries are not even able to detect them” => Nope, especially if networked. But detection range is degraded enough to take out batteries using stand-off weapons, while e.g. with a Rafale, detection range is so much degraded that a Rafale flying at high altitude can actually fly over S-300 or S-400 much powerful radar without being detected and use cheap LGBs or JDAMs against the battery. US stealth uses the theory of physical diffraction they knew about from… Read more »

I think my record is 22.
Considering most of those who are posting are Hezbollocks or IRGC propagandists, it’s always pleasing to troll shitlamists.

Actually, never heard of Jews doing any genocide… Meanwhile, Islamic forces slaughtered about 270-350 millions people in India alone… They’d better switch jihad for Yoga… Guess why India loves Israel. Ôm namah Siva!

rabbi drewzif : your Khomeini killed more Iranians after his coup in order to maintain his power against any legitimate opposition than IDF over 70 years at being attacked from all sides…
If we consider the Iran-Iraq war, the very existence of the raffidah shitlamic dictatorship had for consequence the biggest bloodshed since the Mongolian invasions…

Syria does not need the S-300s anyway, as they have bought a sure-fire F-35 killer….a flock of geese.
