During an overnight raid on purported Iranian positions in Syria, Israeli rockets hit a Pantsir-S1 surface-to-air missile and anti-aircraft artillery system.

A Russian military correspondent, Alexander Kots, has uploaded a picture of a Syrian air defense system, a Pantsir-S1, eliminated by the Israeli airstrikes.

“It’s written here that all the missiles had been fired (this can be seen from the burned pipes), the radar is not in the combat position, the missile hit point, the hydraulic rack is raised. That is, it simply had nothing to fight off with, it was waiting to be recharged,” he tweeted.

Kots stressed that if it was in fact waiting to be recharged, Israel merely destroyed an unarmed system. The image suggests that the Pantsir-S1 was destroyed by an IAI Harop, a loitering munition, with previous allegations that the IDF might had fired Delilah cruise missiles, or Spike NLOS, a fire-and-forget anti-tank guided missile.

The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported, citing a military source, that the army’s air defenses had “shot down dozens of Israeli missiles, preventing most of them from reaching their targets,” however, some of the rockets managed to hit radars and an ammunition depot.
Israel, in turn, claimed that it had retalinated against Iranian forces in Syria, which had launched around 20 rockets at Israeli frontline positions. SANA released footage showing the moments when Damascus brought down Israeli missiles.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, Israeli fighter jets fired some 60 rockets at several targets in Syria in addition to 10 tactical surface-to-surface missiles.

Its more like showing off Israeli ‘superiority’ and ‘prowess’ by way of deception. The Pantsir was literally a sitting duck.

LOL! They have no dream of greater Israel! This conspiracy theory spread after after bin Laden saw the interview of a Rabi being asked : “In the Torah/Bible, what are the borders of the Israel God promised to Abraham”, so he answered what was written : from the Nile to the Euphrates. Then Osama began to record totally paranoid rants. Actually, as it made big noise and drove many Arab official paranoid. A totally hilarious Israeli official debunked this with smth like “One really be deluded thinking we want to rule over 100 millions Arabs, 4 millions Palestinians are already… Read more »

The article forgets that Pantsir is NOT ONLY a missile system and not only has a radar! Pantsir also uses an IR detection/targetting system and has 2x 30mm guns, each firing 2500 at a rounds per minute rate (total 5000RPM) with 1400 rounds magazine. It compares with the power and magazine of the A-10’s gun! Absolutely devastating : it shoots 83 rounds per second, a real wall of metal flying near Mach3! so it’s also a CIWS turret (close in weapon system) even more powerful than the 20mm Phalanx mounted on US-Navy ships and now even on trucks! The goal… Read more »
