The Israeli response: "no choice but to destroy Syrian S-300 despite confrontation with Russia."

This is the only way in which I can see the zionist stete responding – and why we should be anxious. Israel does not, and never has, had any other modus operandi since its inception in 1948.

There will, no doubt be absolute panic in Jerusalem.

The western media is silent about this as is the bulk of the Israeli media.

*** BREAKING NEWS -- URGENT *** Israeli General Says Israel "has no choice but to destroy Syrian S-300 despite confrontation with Russia."
24 September, 2018

The former head of Israeli Military Intelligence, Major General AmosYadlin, says that if Russia hands over to Syria the S300 air defense system, Israel will have no choice but to destroy it in spite of a risk of confrontation with Russia!
Israeli defense analyst: ''With Putin's S-300, Assad's army could even 'lock-on' IAF aircraft as they take off from bases within Israel.''

"Israel should be worried.''
 This is a developing story, updates to follow . . . .

 UPDATE 5:37 PM EDT -- 

Israeli security cabinet will convene tomorrow morning to discuss the recent events with Russia.

In a phone call on Monday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked Russian President Vladimir Putin to reconsider the decision to supply the Assad regime with an advanced S-300 anti-aircraft missile system.

Putin turned Netanyahu down. 

Russia FM minister: "Russia ready to discuss with the United States the supply of S-300 to Syria - but the US should give up mentoring and attempts to present their own approaches as the only possible one"

*** BULLETIN ***

Updated 5:41 PM EDT --
Israel warned Russia it will destroy Hmeimim Air base if Israeli Military jets trying to Bomb Syria are harmed by Russian s-300's, Israeli military analyst Ron Ben-Yishai says.

THAT is what prompted the Russians to impose a full 'NO-FLY" Zone over Latakia, Syria today!

UPDATE  5:52 PM EDT -- 

(This is getting out-of-hand very fast . . . .)
The Israeli Air Force said that "In terms of both quality and quantity, it could easily defeat the Russian Air Force and send missiles to Hmeimim air base in such quantity that the S-400 or Pantsir-S1 could not defend against them."

The IDF also said "Even with the advantage of on-site forces, Israeli commandos could invade the Hmeimim base and wipe out Russian air defense complexes to make it easier for fighter jets to operate."
2 USAF B-2 stealth bombers have taken off from Hickam AFB.   We note the  ‘DEATH’ callsigns.

Russian defense minister Shoigu reacts also against US movements in Syria: "Delivery of #Russia's S300 to Syria will also stop Western coalition from carrying out uncontrolled attacks on Syrian territory"
As the Israeli media is full of reports on supplies of Russian-made S-300 systems to Syria, it’s important to recall a statement by Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, which was made earlier this year.
He claimed that Israel will destroy Russian-supplied S-300 air defense systems if Syria employs them against Israeli jets.
One thing needs to be clear: If someone shoots at our planes, we will destroy them. It doesn’t matter if it’s an S-300 or an S-700,” he said.

On September 24, the Russian Defense Ministry said that Damascus will get S-300 air defense systems within 2 weeks. Moscow will also boost air defense capabilities of the Syrian military expanding its integration with the Russian military. Russian Electronic Warfare (EW) systems will be also employed to prevent a threat to Russian servicemen in the war-torn country.

The reason the Israelis are freaking-out over arrival of the S-300 air defense missile system to Syria has to do with its effective range.
The map below shows the effective SHOOT-DOWN range of the S-300.   But the TRACKING RANGE is far greater.  Thus, a single S-300 system in Damascus could SHOOT DOWN any aircraft in the green shaded area.  This makes it impossible for Israel to continue attacking Syria.

Russia declares electronic war on Israel ranging over Syria, E. Mediterranean

24 September, 2018

Within two weeks, Russia will arm Syria with S-300 air defense systems and start jamming navigation in the E. Mediterranean – two of the three measures announced by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu in Moscow on Monday, Sept. 24 “in response to Israel’s role in downing the Russian IL-20” on Sept. 17.
Syria’s air defense electronic capacities will be boosted to level that of Russian forces in the country. But the most significant measure announced by Shoigu was: “Russia will jam satellite navigation, on-board radars and communication systems of combat aircraft, which attack targets in the Syrian territory, in the regions over the waters of the Mediterranean Sea bordering with Syria.”

The Russian minister stressed that if these measures “fail to cool hotheads, [He was obviously referring to Israel.], we will have to respond in line with the current situation.”

The crucial measure he announced is not the arming of Syria for the first time with S-300 systems – which Moscow withheld in the past at Israel’s request – but the jamming of navigation. DEBKAfile’s military experts point out that this the first time a major world power has declared electronic war against any country. After rejecting Israel’s version of the Ilyushin crash with 15 Russian servicemen aboard as untruthful, Moscow has thrown down the electronic gauntlet before the IDF and pitched the dispute onto a much higher elevation. This challenge confronts Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gady Eisenkot with three tough options:

  1. They could have sought a way out of this high-stakes showdown with Moscow up until Monday. But now, it is too late. Shoigu slammed the door shut on a quiet exit. However, Israel is even more unable to give up on its air offensive against Iranian and its proxies’ presence in Syria, despite the escalated risk of a clash with the Russians, because it would constitute a humiliating comedown against Iran and Hizballah. However, in future, the IDF may be more cautious and select its targets with greater circumspection.

  2. They could meet Moscow’s challenge for an electronic duel. In previous encounters, Israel came of best. In 1982, the Israeli Air Force destroyed a Russian air defense network installed by Russia in the Lebanese Beqaa Valley; and more recently, in 2007, Israeli planes, before destroying the Iranian-North Korean plutonium reactor in Deir Ez-Zour, activated its “Suter” system to “blind” the Syrian/Russian radar protecting the site.
    Russian electronic warfare specialists have since sought answers for Israel’s jamming measures, but have found it difficult to catch up with is constant advances. However, this time may be different. DEBKAfile reports that the latest Russian challenge may stretch Israel’s Air Force and Navies beyond their capacity. While successful in coping with electronic antagonists over small targets in the past, they now see the Russian Defense Minister painting a large arena of many hundreds of kilometers covering Syria and the eastern Mediterranean for the new challenge. Israel lacks operational experience on this scale of electronic warfare.

  3. The IDF is much less worried about the impending delivery of S-300 missiles systems to Bashar Assad’s army. For years, the IAF has been practicing combat against these batteries. But for taking on massive Russian jamming across the eastern Mediterranean, Israel may have to turn to the United States for assistance. This request may be raised when Netanyahu meets President Donald Trump on Wednesday Sept. 26, on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York.
Behind a paypwall this is from the realist wing of zionism

Netanyahu says move to arm Assad with advanced system within 2 weeks following downing of spy plane will ‘magnify dangers’ in region, Bolton cautions of ‘significant escalation’

From the lunatic on the block


U.S National Security Adviser John R. Bolton said on Monday he hopes Russia will reconsider its plans to sell S-300 missile defense systems to Syria as that would be a “significant escalation” by Moscow, Reuters reports.

Pointing at Iran, Bolton claimed that it’s that country which is responsbile for attacks on Syria and Lebanon, as well as downing the Russian plane in Syria.

An incident that the Russian Ministry of Defense argued Israel is involved in and Israel denies, claiming it was downed by Syria.
