Omg. Israeli Airforce Used 2 Civilian Jets As Cover To Carry Out Airstrike. by Nobody: 6:40am On Dec 27, 2018
I am beginning to hate this crazy country. imagine if the air defence had hit the two passenger jets.

On the evening of Christmas Day, six Israeli F-16 fighter jets used two civilian flights as cover to strike a logistics compound on the outskirts of Damascus from Lebanese airspace, the Russian Defense Ministry said Wednesday. Thus, during the assault, the Syrian military was forced to restrict the use of air defense systems and radio jamming capabilities to avert a possible tragedy. Despite that advantage, only two of the sixteen Israeli-launched laser-guided bombs reached their targets, wounding three people, while the rest were intercepted.

While a potential tragedy involving civilian jets was averted on Tuesday, similar decoy tactics by Israel already led to horrific consequences back in September, when Syrian air defense units struck a Russian Il-20 plane, killing all 15 crew on board. At the time of the disaster, Israel’s F-16s were using the surveillance plane as cover during their raid against alleged ‘Iranian targets’ in Syria.

Yet, despite a record of reckless actions, Netanyahu remains committed to fighting the “Iranian military entrenchment in Syria,” by countering the threat “vigorously and continuously,” even through the holiday season.

Lol...where are the people shouting Israel can never strike Syria again?

Sentiment apart..the Israelis are good at what they do, keeping to ethics or not..they get the job done to keep themselves safe..!!

Most shouting here don't even know that the argument in Israel today about the s300 is the concern for who is manning it at a particular point in time and not because it would or can stop their operations in Syria ...!! they don't want to take out the s300 with Russians soldiers in it..!!

The world would witness wonders by the time the s300 is fully operational and completely handed over to the Syrians...!!!

What a babel!

So by using passenger planes as cover to strike target is genius, and also mean they have overcome the S-300 threat? Are you listening to yourself at all?

There is no wonder for Israel anywhere. The fact that they could no longer enter Syria to strike as usual, but firing standoff missiles from Lebanese airspace shows how effective the S-300 deterrent has been.

Just 3 days back, Israeli Iron Dome could not even stop a single S-V5 misille fired by Syrian forces into the Mount Carmel area in Israel, which causes a lot of panic in the town as the missile exploded. Now, that is a missile produced in the 1960s and the much hype Iron Dome of recent design could not take it down, and here you are talking about how the world would see wonders when Syria finally start to operate the S-300.

My friend, stop kidding yourself because of religious belief.

If Israel really want to kill off or limit the Iranian threat, they should get Trump on board to arrange things with Putin behind closed doors, and you will see what we happen next. But trying to play stubborn and acting recklessly using civilian planes as cover to do things would expose them to much disadvantage in the future.

I understand the Israeli fear of Iran establishing military post so close to its borders. But trying to fend off the threat by being extremely reckless will never help their course. It was such act of recklessness that damage their relationship with Russia, ending their free forays into the Syrian airspace.

If Bibi is smart as he claims, he should try to get Russia back on board because Putin has a lot of sympathy for the Jewish state. By the time those 49 units of the S-300 starts to fire back, I wonder how the IDF would cope, especially with Iron Dome's inability to stop a 1960 variant of the missile.

These are facts, not some "Miracle-would-happen" wishful thinking.

Oga, I hope you read where I wrote "Ethics or not" ?

The days ahead would clear all these up and down arguments...
What I know for sure is the Israelis for who they are judging from their past antecedents are not sitting idle...for sure would find a way if not already found one round the s300..!!

My comment contain extract from an Israeli military chief and from what they are saying...they are not really bothered by the s300 present in Syria...their main concern is who is operating it...!!

We would all live long and come.back to this thread some days after the s300 becomes fully operational and completely handed over to the Syrian force...!!

And for the record I don't really think you know how the iron dome work...why waste a missile on an incoming projectile which by all calculation would fall in an open space and cause no harm...? I would advice you revert back to the Gaza war where iron dome were used extensively..not all projectiles are knocked down...once the system locked on the projectile and calculate where it would land..then decision to either knock it off or allow it to land is taken...pls kindly do a small research on this system..!

Out of 16 Missiles fired, only two hit their target. The rest were destroyed by other air defenses .
That is 12.5% success rate and see people are here praising Israel prowress.

The Israeli Air Force used as many as 16 US-made laser-guided GBU-39 bombs, but only two of them reached their targets. Most were intercepted by Syria’s air defenses, according to the Russian Defense Ministry.

OMG!! There is need for serious brain check for many ppl on nairaland. Particularly those anglozionist wannabe fanboiz.

First of all hiding behind a large/wide cross sectional radar in air-warfare is old and too primitive but yes it still works the same way, what you will have at the end of the day is dogfight. Just what you will be left with after shooting all the over hyped 'fire and forget' junkie missiles.

Secondly.. Reason for brain check. Hiding behind a passenger jet to carry out an attack thereby putting the lives of hundreds of people at direct risk knowing fully well that all passenger jet on Syrian/Lebanese skies do not have Identification, friend or foe (IFF) installed on them. This is the same thing those miscreants (Israelis) did with the Russian IL20 that got 19 Russian service member killed and the same miscreants are still denying it till date..

This is what some lunatics on here are asking why S-300 was not employed ? You want S-300 to put the direct lives of those passenger jets at risk ? This is the most cowardice way to ever fight and I am glad and happy the only spoilt kid in middle east, Israelis are having fewer ways to attack Syria.

Time for Syria to launch a counter attack , while all things being equal.

They say neck you say throat.. The difference between the two is very small. Everyone has been saying this rogue state is the only terrorist in middle east since its inception during 1st world war. The only terrorist in middle east whose creation has brought nothing but dismay, corruption, death, war, economic problem what have you.

Yet in intense someone is here saying they are good at killing people since its inception.. Even those terrorist they co sponsored are way better than the zionist state itself... A state that is coming to an end as time goes on.. Little by little, slow but steady..

Again, they now have very low chances of bombing Syria. (Without a declaration of war or even U.N).. That is nothing but pure childishness and being too desperate. A very good sign of maximum weakness. Now that is the reality on ground.

Scully, don't mind the bastards. grin

So-called "Best Air-Force" in the world, using old 1970s F16s (instead of their much touted invisible F35 with their proclaimed superior stealth capabilities) to hide behind civilian airliners (full of goyims) to carry out cowardly attacks on targets in a sovereign state, just a day after the Russian Defense Ministry announced that it was sending 150 Russian Servicemen back home to Moskow. grin

What does that tell you?

1.) The F35 is never invisible to radars & are vulnerable to the Russian Air Defense Systems.

2.) Israel has woken up to the reality that her days as the regional hegemon in the Middle East are over.

3.) Israel is still writhing in pain & gnashing her teeth for being dumb & outsmarted by Putin & Shoigu in supplying Syria with the S-300s. grin

Israel's goal was to get Syrian/Russian air defenses to shoot down the civilian airliners and then use it as an excuse to have Amerika & NATO invade Syria officially - start the war afresh.

The Russians saw through their gimmicks & made the call to halt the release of the missiles.

One thing is clear, the humiliation of Israel by a 2nd tier Army (Syrian Arab Army) is becoming more & more glaring to the entire world. grin

Common you of all people should know that Israel can never use an f35 to evade air defense and in syria and make it public. Israel and Russia still cover each other's asses. If such is made public that an f35 invisibly carried out an operation (which is not impossible) the whole sale of the system will be jeopardized which is not good for russia and Israeli relation. Do u know the number of activities that go on un announced?

There are some very disgraceful comments here.

If this story is true, then it means Israel committed a war crime by hiding behind non-combatant civilians to execute military operations.

That Israel had to hide behind a warcrime and also strike from a neighbouring country accentuates their real fear about the deployed anti-aircraft systems in Syria.

Thank you jaare, your head is correct. The assholes that commented above you are quick to defend Israel but after giving them factual hardknocks, they always deny supporting Israel. grin

Since Syria is being constantly attacked from the Lebanese airspace in spite of Lebanon complaining to the UN, words in the street is that Russia is going to propose to the UN that the UN should take over the responsibility of protecting the Lebanese airspace.

When the proposal gets rejected, the Russians would then offer to do it themselves - Bingo! grin

Oga, I hope you read where I wrote "Ethics or not" ?

The days ahead would clear all these up and down arguments...
What I know for sure is the Israelis for who they are judging from their past antecedents are not sitting idle...for sure would find a way if not already found one round the s300..!!

My comment contain extract from an Israeli military chief and from what they are saying...they are not really bothered by the s300 present in Syria...their main concern is who is operating it...!!

Yes, they are not sitting idle, and that's why they have changed tactics--using a defenseless Lebanese airspace to fire standoff missiles. But trusting the words of their general or chiefs regarding the S-300 threat, is like having to believe that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction prior to the 2003 invasion.

Now hear this: Israel has NO ANSWER to the S-300 threat for the time being. If they had, they wouldn't have lobbied Russia since 2015 to not deliver the system to the Syrian government.

Again, before now, they and US have been gaming and training against a variant of the S-300 operated by Greece. Yet, they still have to send forces to Ukraine to train against the same weapon last two months when Russia delivers the the system to Syria, and in the course of that training, they lost a plane and a pilot, and the shameless ediot tried to cover it up by calling it a collision in the sky. Doesn't that tell you that they are still unable to beat the S-300 threat? So don't take the words of their loud-mouth generals for real, because they are good in publicity just like the US. Before now they boasted that they would take out the S-300 on arrival and till date, their planes can't even cross into Syria airspace anymore and you still believe their loud mouth generals?.

Why Israel is good in what they do, they are no match for the Russians, and that is a fact. Go and do some research about the 1974 Yum Kippur war and see what Soviet supplied SAMs to Egypt did to IDF planes and pilots. The Jews have learned their lessons and they know that Russian SAMs work, not the types that work by hype. and that is why they are being so careful now. With all their boast of using F-35s and so on, why haven't they deploy them? My friend, you will do well when you stop taking Iraeli politicians words seriously, especially where Russia is concerned.

We would all live long and come.back to this thread some days after the s300 becomes fully operational and completely handed over to the Syrian force...!!

And for the record I don't really think you know how the iron dome work...why waste a missile on an incoming projectile which by all calculation would fall in an open space and cause no harm...? I would advice you revert back to the Gaza war where iron dome were used extensively..not all projectiles are knocked down...once the system locked on the projectile and calculate where it would land..then decision to either knock it off or allow it to land is taken...pls kindly do a small research on this system..!

Peace...!!!


Yes, by the Grace of God, we all would live to see what will happen. But, I hope all goes well and Syria return to its peaceful state while Iran returns home and let Israel breath a bit.

My friend, stop making excuses for the Iron Dome. The overrated SAM locked on the Syria S-200 and DID Fire to intercept the missile, but failed WOEFULLY. The Jewish media reported the failure, and the incoming missile exploded harmlessly in a town of Israeli, causing panic everywhere. So no decision was taking to allow it to land harmlessly, otherwise they would not have fired to intercept it. The system failed big time, and that is a fact. You don't need research to know how best it works. A recent SAM was fired to intercept a 40-something year old Soviet missile and it missed. Period! Don't paint it white.

Re: Omg. Israeli Airforce Used 2 Civilian Jets As Cover To Carry Out Airstrike. by Appleyard(m): 5:24am On Dec 29, 2018
joudini:
There are some very disgraceful comments here.

If this story is true, then it means Israel committed a war crime by hiding behind non-combatant civilians to execute military operations.

That Israel had to hide behind a warcrime and also strike from a neighbouring country accentuates their real fear about the deployed anti-aircraft systems in Syria.

I thought most new comers that come here to comment on behalf of Israel, Syria or Russia has lost touch with reality. The problem with many (especially the Christians) down here is that they read their Bible one-sided in so much that nothing they "chosen ones do" is ever wrong. They have forgotten that the same God that places blessings on Israel also placed curses on them if they do wrong and depart from God's standard like martreating the strangers (e.g, asking all Africans to leave the country), IDF fighter planes kill four innocent Palestinian children playing football by the beach, and more. These are the "mighty" airforce that some heartless Nigerians so-called Christians are quick to hail as the best in the world. Sometimes I wonder what is wrong with humanity. Must one applaud evil just because one shares the same religious or socio-political ideology? As a Christian, Jesus never thought me that, and I will call out Israel, Iran, Russia, China, US or anyone that will do what is unethical and evil, and it's such unfortunate that the current state of Israel is one living example. How can you hide behind passenger planes to launch military attacks? I don't know what else could be more evil than that. Of course, one should not be too surprised, after all, MOSSAD motto states that "by deception we shall wage war". So that explains everything.

Anyway, you have said it all. The fact that they now have to hide behind passenger planes and a defenseless airspace of another country to strike their targets entails the S-300 threat is real and their actions confirmed it.

I wonder what the situation would look like should Lebanon decide to up their air defenses.

There are ways Israel can nip this current problem in the bud, but the problem is, they will want to prove that they can outsmart everyone all the time. The US is leaving Syria today because Trump understand that in everything, there is a limit, and you can't win all the time. It is better to leave than to engage in an all out war with a nato member, which is becoming a possibility with each passing day. But those who don't understand lambasted him for "caving in" to the Russians.

The same line of thinking is what is affecting Israel and their fan Boys here now. They simply do not understand when to seek appropriate channels to resolve some critical issues. The best way to get Iran out of Syria is to go through Russia, but Benjamin NetanyahOO would still want to proof GTA for Ivan the terrible. I think he is committing a big strategic mistake..
