An undated handout photo distributed by Syrian News Agency (SANA) on July 9, 2012 shows a missile being launched from a mobile platform during a live ammunitions exercise by Syrian air defence forces in an undisclosed location.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 P.M.) – The Syrian and Iranian forces fired back at the enemy aircraft that attacked their troops in the Albukamal countryside last night, a military source in Damascus told Al-Masdar News.

According to the source, the Syrian and Iranian forces attempted to engage the enemy warplane with anti-aircraft fire after it was spotted and bombing their troops in the northeastern countryside of Albukamal.

The source said this response from the Iranian and Syrian forces was the first time that they have engaged an enemy aircraft in eastern Syria.

This response by the Syrian and Iranian forces shows that they have increased their security measures in eastern Syria,

With the recent announcement from Iraq about reopening the Al-Qa’im crossing, the Syrian Armed Forces will have to increase their security measures in eastern Syria because this will be a major roadway linking both countries.

This new crossing point will no doubt be monitored closely by Israel, as Syria will be officially linked to Tehran via a roadway in Iraq for the first time in years.

Lucky the SAA dont use a Patriot AD system. It would not have fired off any missiles because it would not have detected ANYTHING and if the Patriot system is pointed the wrong way it can’t fire at targets coming from the opposite direction of where it is pointed at either…apparently…according to the BBC…Yes it is sarcasm 🙂

To intercept something, Patriots must first be fired, and they weren’t alone :
There were Skyguard and Crotale batteries, added to an E-3 Sentry AWACS patrolling. Let’s suppose you already have the newest active stealth system upcoming on the Rafale F4 upgrade (2023) making you totally invisible to radars, the Crotale will detect you anyway through its infrared and electro-optical sensors…
CONCLUSION : Saudis let the strike happen.

@AK … The US did manage to shoot down a British RAF tornado during the first gulf war using the patriot missile system. But i understand that Larry, Curly and Moe were still in the forces then. 🙂 🙂 🙂

No such systems are around. They’re in Iran, where Israel never strikes, you you cute little dumbo :-p

They didn’t even have used Bavvar-373 to shoot down the Boeing-737-sized MQ-4 Triton, they relied on the Soviet-created Buk and they bought S-300…
Good signs on how they trust the gear they build.
I really ask myself if the opium smoker in Tehran is understanding what is coming for him or if he’s as deluded as cocaine-snorting Saddam+Gaddafi

Israel send some YF-22 Stealth fighter in to Iran and was no detection by Iranian air defence systems

Yeah Luka,and Santa flies over the city on every 24th of December thanks to flying reindeers keeping him in the air. Him too flew undetected a while back, probably. Since you seem to be delving into fairy tales I thought of a fitting example to bring up for you 😂

AK, you got me wrong. I was responding to the anti-Iran douche speaking ill of the Bavar battreries where they aren’t even located. What I actually meant was that IDF planes don’t fly close to any areas covered by the Bavar,by contrast to his claim. Iran itself is one giant example of where they never dare venture and where tjose batteries are deployed and ready.

They’re in the jomhuri Eslami. Iran is bankrupt without a Shah and needs a Shag… Anyway, Bavar 373 is nothing else than a stretched RIM-66 Standard-Missile, 1967 US technology. +++”where Israel never strikes” => Oh, now MBS has decided that if Israel wants to use the Saudi airspace if they want to strike the jomhuri Eslami, it may change. Israel should return to Dassault : Rafale takes off in 400m and they all have arresting hook… Filipinos build you a 400m container-carrier for $135M. Mod it as an aircraft carrier, with Rafale, no need for catapults with such a deck,… Read more »

It hasnt been used yet in Syria.
Even 3rd khordad system power is beyond ptriot AD system .
Leve alone 15th khordad and Baver 373 or Iranian Talash system
