BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Ambassador to Lebanon, ‘Ali ‘Abdul-Karim, told Iran’s Al-Alam TV on Saturday that the U.S. attempted to coax the Syrian air defenses into shooting down the Iranian airliner in the Homs Governorate last Thursday, July 23rd.

“This game failed to confuse the Syrian defensive and radar systems; thus, this dirty and dangerous game yielded negative results for its perpetrators,” ‘Abdul-Karim said in his accusation.

“So far, it has been known that the fighter jets belonged to the U.S., but, it doesn’t matter since they both are in the same position,” he added.

‘Abdul-Karim did not provide any more details regarding his claim.

The Syrian Ambassador to the United Nations, Dr. Bashar Al-Ja’afari, condemned the U.S.’ interception of the Iranian airliner on Saturday, calling it a flagrant violation of Syria’s sovereignty and purposeful attempt to down the aircraft.

SyADF never dared to launch a SAM against an US aircraft. The only time they managed to shood down an Israeli F-16, half of their SAM batteries were destroyed into 72 hours.. Pfff, swallowing such crapaganda is as ridiculous as the Excuses you speak about

Shitlamist troll, why haven’t you grown a brain all these years? Even your beloved Goebbels, 2 months before committing suicide, acknowledged that all the lies [he spread, and so is it for yours] would end collapsing on their own weight and the truth will win. I’m only pi$$ing off people wanting to shelter the public from the truth. I don’t like how the US are usually doing as if they will do the right thing in the end, they will have to try anything that doesn’t works before doing the right thing, so their actions will often have grim results.… Read more »

The US aircraft escorted the airliner.Israelis use of French tactics. Let me show you how forcing into an airspace and being stealth, 4th gen style. No more need to do this with 5th gen Rafale. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J04xaaQjQ40
BTW, you will also see REAL interception procedures. Another point : Director did a hëll of a job filming aircraft.Except the blast, no CGI here. BTW, these deltas f*cked F-22 at Red Flag…
