BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:05 A.M.) – Earlier this morning, the Israeli Air Force launched several airstrikes on the key Syrian city of Masyaf in the Hama Governorate.

According to a military source near the scene of the airstrikes, the Israeli warplanes hit a number of sites near the Masyaf National Hospital.

The source said the Israeli airstrikes targeted some of the military storages in Masyaf; this resulted in several loud explosions that could be heard as far east as Hama city.

He added that the S-300 system was not in use during the Israeli attack.

Masyaf is an important city because it is considered headquarters of the Tiger Forces and several other military units.

The S-300 system has also been installed around the city.

Israel couldnt find the time to bomb ISIS when they were right on their border.

What’s the point of the S-300s in Syria? They’re never “in use.”

They’re Kosher S300s, they don’t work for the goyim.

Russian soldiers murdered by Israel six months (or so) ago and it’s still “a-okay” for them to bomb at will in Syria.

As usual, the S 300 are switched off when Israel bomb. Delivered in october and still inefficient in April ! Whaou ! Or most probably Putin doesn’t autorize their use against his friend Bibi.

Syria should buy the superior HQ-16 air defence systems. S300/300 has proven to be a useless piece of s**t in practice.At least buying the Chinese system will guarantee no “veto switch” for the Russians to override to protect their Jew buddies in Israel. HQ-16 – better, cheaper, fully no strings attached. http://www.military-today.com/missiles/hq16.htm

The point here is not whether or not Syria is capable of stopping Israel missiles, this is not relevant. The point here is …..why hasn’t Syria brought down any Israel plane ? Why hasn’t Syria never bombed Israel air basis ? From outside, Syria looks as a ……. country.

From what we now see ,Israel can bomb at will and without any retribution .So what happens when the settlers start setting up shop in the Golan ? will it be the same as when they do so in the West Bank ?Come one Putin give us some downed Israeli war planes once in a while .The free world expects as much.

Are Jewish relation between Russia and Israel stronger than human lives and friends and supporters like the Iranians? Or are S300 only a propaganda-trick of Putin?
As long as Israeli war crimes at any place are tolerated Russia looks a Paper tiger!

Actually Russia didn’t give SAA a real S-300 system but rather a mockup or maybe remote controllable unit…

Why do Western Nations support the ORIGINAL nazis? They worship a Tribal WAR GOD ….. They invented genocide 3,000 years ago and codified it into their biblical roots. Israel has been attacking CHRISTianity for 2,000 years They instigated the Roman pogroms against the first Christians. They instigated Muslims to attack peaceful Christian pilgrims to the Holy Land which lead to the Crusades.. Donmah/Turkish Jews instigated the Armenian holocaust. Jewish Bolsheviks engineered the Ukrainian HOLOMODOR, a HOLOCAUST of 60millions of Christians.. Dump the YOKE of “WWII guilt” ……. Jews are conducting TWO genocides RIGHT NOW Jews instigate and aggravate the genocidal… Read more »
