BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 A.M.) – The Russian military allegedly prevented the Israeli Air Force from conducting three different attacks on Syria since the start of September, Independent Arabia reported on Friday.

Citing a Russian source, the Independent said the Russian military threatened to bring down the Israeli warplanes using their own fighter jets or their S-400 system.

Once such attack was allegedly foiled by the Russian military at turn of the month. In particular, the report said the Russian military prevented an Israeli attack on a missile battery in the Qassioun Mountain area of Damascus.

Another foiled attack allegedly took place in the Al-Quneitra Governorate, when an Israeli fighter jet was heading northwest towards the Syrian coast.

“These developments prompted Netanyahu (Israeli PM) to visit Russia urgently to try to persuade Putin (Russian President) to continue his policy of turning a blind eye to Israel’s attacks in Syria; however, the Russian president told his Israeli visitor that his country would not allow them to harm Assad’s forces or weapons supplied to the regime, saying that allowing this would be considered collusion with Israel and a nuisance for the Russians, especially since Russia considers itself the savior of the Syrian regime,” the publication claimed.

The publication’s claims coincided with a previous report from several Russian publications about Russian Su-35 jets intercepting Israeli warplanes near the Lebanese border.

Neither Russian nor Israel has commented on these claims.

Time will tell if there are no more Israeli air strikes. About time and should have been done ages ago but better late than never.

The only way to prevent Israeli strikes in Syria is to boot both IRGC and Hezbollah. Moreover, Israelis don’t even need to do air-strikes : it’s just more practical/economic to drop a cheap glide bomb. They can use their LYNX or M270 MLRS, LYNX can launch barely anything : Grad rockets, 160mm LAR-160 or ACCULAR (45 and 40km); 306mm EXTRA (150km); Predator Hawk tactical ballistic missile (300km); Delilah loitering cruise missile while a rocket-booster has been created for the GBU-39/57 SDB glide bomb, allowing to launch it from a M270, the system is cost-effective, utilizing an existing weapon paired with… Read more »

Is it just me, but why those 3? Russia has continually turned off the S300s given to Syria on multiple occasions, so why report they stopped anything?
Didn’t Putin just meet with the Israeli PM?
Why did only the domestically produced IRANIAN anti-missile system work and shoot down the US stealth global hawk?
Think, think, think.

+++ “Russia has continually turned off the S300s given to Syria on multiple occasions, so why report they stopped anything?” => I wouldn’t be too surprised if Russia had just delivered dummy missiles! The real goal is SyADF not shooting down Russian aircraft again! SyADF old Soviets SAMs can’t recognise RuAF assets as friends. Having S-300 networked with these systems as “slaves” in its network allows these legacy systems to recognise modern RuAF’s IFF and so to avoid repeating the Il-20M blunder! If ever S-300 is used, batteries will shoot… Once, then IDF will destroy them. Remember what happened when… Read more »

“In fact, thanks to the idiots in Iranian air defences, now their air-defences are useless! USA sacrificed the MQ-4 while” blah-blah-blah

Mykola, I see you have met “the” Douche Bag. To give you a brief overview of his brilliance : Real name “Daeshbagsux”, secondary troll account “Nabka 2.0” and now this anti-Iran slogan written in farsi “Marg bar jomhuri Eslami”. Just browse for my many exchanges with the madman where I debunk and liquidate his many many fallacies, one has to read it to believe his level of plain insanity. He openly advocates the use of nuclear weapons against Iran, Pakistan , Turkey and Syria by Israel, and fantasizes about 5 to 10 million dead Iranians within seconds of the first… Read more »

Half of the 900 launchers LoL the wrt dreams of a fanboy troll dumping numbers like candy so that they look fancy on a thread xD The Syrian air defense force doesn”t even deploy that many assets anymore ever since the civil war attrition and foreign salafi proxies systematically overunning air defense bases since 2012 with direct intelligence and logistical support from Mossad, and most of the remaining ones are currently in storage as they know their inefficiency against IDF jamming hardware. Only a couple inactive Pantsyr units were taken out during servicing with their radars turned off and their… Read more »

It seems that they agree to move back all iranian facilities 80 km away from Israel’s borders.

Done already, for months if not a year. And it changed nothing in Nutt-a-Yahoo’s belligerent behavior, and the reason is simple : as long as Iran or Lebanon exist as integral nations and peoples, he will simply never run out of pseudo-motives proclaimed unilaterally to justify an endless aggression scheme designed to destroy and dominate. No matter if they are all addressed one by one by the Russians or anyone else on the ground, like this 80km thing, and Hezbollah’s stated withdrawal from Syria, two demands that were technically met, the mad PM will bring up more unacceptable ones down… Read more »

Except that this was supposed to have been done while Golan and near areas are still infested. In fact, it’s not only Israel’s interest to get rid from Hezb+IRGC in Syria, but also Russia + Syria interest : letting Iranians making Syria a super-Lebanon can ONLY end with a regional war and Syria will be the battleground… Same thing for Iraq where I doubt that population is willing to see Iraq being the battleground for another war to please the crazy ayatollah’s imperialism. Syria’s best interest is neutrality, same for Iraq. And when I speak about a potential regional war,… Read more »

“Except that this was supposed to have been done while Golan and near areas are still infested.” 1 – Considering the fact that Israel is an occupying parasite infesting the Syrian Golan like a plague after invading then annexing it illegally just like it did with Palestinian Territories and nothing getting recognized or supported in this by any country in the world bar the Trump administration, and has hence no place in calling sovereignty over an inch of it in the face of national authorities moving troops and equipment there for whatever reason. 2 – The Israeli Parasite State for… Read more »

Oh, and there goes something like HALF OF SAUDI ARABIA’S OIL OUPUT. The other front you love to snif some coke about and get on with your wet-dreams of crumbling Shia forces in the face a brave and efficient Saudi proxies winning every battle. Half of their output shut down with a couple Houthi-launched drone strikes. Such under-armed militia was able to do that. And you think those pricks can sustain a determined onslaught by a ballistic power such as Iran for more than a couple of hours FFS 😀 https://www.reuters.com/article/us-saudi-aramco-fire/attacks-on-saudi-oil-facilities-knock-out-half-the-kingdoms-supply-idUSKCN1VZ01N For sure that event will help them alleviate the… Read more »
