BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:10 P.M.) – During an attack on Syria in July 2018, an Israeli missile fired from the David Sling system was captured by the Syrian military in the western part of the country.

According to the Russian aviation publication Avia.Pro, the Soviet-era Tochka missile was able to circumvent the David Sling system and bring down the Israeli projectile.

“After the publication of information that in the summer of 2018, the Syrian military captured the surviving Israeli missile defense system “David’s Sling”, the current situation forced experts to criticize the Israeli missile defense system. This is primarily due to the fact that the Tochka tactical missile launched from Syria was able to successfully circumvent one of Israel’s most advanced missile defense systems, as it is positioned in Tel Aviv itself, although the OTRK is 45 years old,” Avia.Pro reported.

“I will simply say: this is a shame. A real shame for the Israeli army. Obviously, they were very interested in the criminal bombing of Syria, once they made such a mistake,” Vladimir Orlov, an expert at the Center for Military-Political Journalism, told Avia.Pro

“One of the two missiles simply failed during the flight. It was not even able to capture the target, not to mention how to hit it. One can only imagine what would happen if, instead of the Soviet Tochka, it was a ballistic missile with a nuclear charge. In fact, the Soviet missile simply broke the success of the Israeli missile defense system, showing that this system is not effective as such,” he told Avia.pro.

Israel has yet to comment on the reports that Syria captured a missile from the David Sling system, despite the initial claims from China’s Sina News Agency.

Zionism is a ponzi scam to plunder the gullible brainwashed moronic western, especially US taxpayers with hype, propaganda and sheer lies. In the next war, the whole Zionist fake narrative will fall apart like its dud missiles. Any military that has a full time job of beating, maiming and killing unarmed Arab women, children and old men can hardly be expected to fight real men, as Hezbollah has proved again and again by humiliating the Zionist child killers who last time fled the Avivam barracks leaving behind filthy soiled bedding.

ISIS is a creation from Iran, Zarqawi was Qassem Soleimani’s puppet in Iraq in order to wreck havoc and have the Iraqis call for Iranian help, and so was it for Baghdadi. Old Alexander the Great trick! Hey, why d’ya think the Yankees killed Zarqawi and jailed Baghdadi? Do you really think that a school-teacher like Baghdadi was a reader of military strategy books? And the ISIS blitzkrieg was a result of the alliance with general al-Douri : Soleimani is VERY efficient for cover ops, al-Douri was so for old school German strategies : trench warfare, blitzkrieg etc… Al-Douri broke… Read more »

The Tochka itself can carry a nuclear charge. It is known as the Hwasong-11 in North Korea.

Zionist weapons are mostly mere hype and as Hezbollah proved in 2006, in the next real all out war the Zionist propaganda will prove to be a total dud like its US taxpayer funded missiles. The Zionists are good at killing unarmed women, children and old men in Palestine.

Seems that Russian arms sales are in trouble or they wouldn’t use of such pitiful bias to try to protect their market-share for SAM sales. The truth is simply that Israel s hitting the markets with both better and cheaper air defense systems than Russia, and they even do better than the US with prices on par with China! What did happened? In fact, Syria used Toshka to do strikes into Syria at very short range, the trajectory has been changed at low altitude, LONG before reaching the maximum height Toshka can reach. Why? In order to use the biggest… Read more »
