‘Steps everyone will notice’ – Syria to get powerful Russian S-300 system

On September 22, Robert Bridge wrote about how an Israeli incursion into Syria that ended with the downing of a Russian IL-20 plane and fifteen crewmen was an incident that the Russian Federation’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said: “The actions of the Israeli military were not in keeping with the spirit of the Russian-Israeli partnership, so we reserve the right to respond.”

And the Israelis are concerned, as they should be. After what they did, and their subsequent blame game, trying to pin the responsibility for this incident on the Syrian forces (which are backed by Russia), now the payback has arrived.

TASS reported September 24th that Russia decided to install advanced S-300 anti-missile and anti-aircraft batteries in Syria. The older S-200 systems could not differentiate between friendly and unfriendly targets, which was how the Israeli fighters managed to not get shot down. They “framed” an IL-20, and the missiles intended to stop the incursion instead took out a Russian plane.

TASS writes:

Within two weeks, the Syrian army will get from Russia S-300 air-defense missiles to strengthen its combat capabilities following the downing of a Russian Ilyushin Il-20 aircraft in Syria, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Monday.

“A modern S-300 air defense missile system will be supplied to the Syrian Armed Forces within two weeks. It is capable of intercepting air assault weapons at a distance of more than 250 kilometers and hit simultaneously several air targets,” the minister said.

Shoigu said S-300 missiles will strongly strengthen combat capabilities of the Syrian air defense due to their jamming invulnerability and firing speed.

“I will underscore – at the request of the Israeli side, in 2013 we suspended the delivery of S-300 systems that were ready for the dispatch, while the Syrian military had undergone training. Now the situation has changed, and we are not to blame,” the defense minister said.

Command posts of the Syrian air defense will also be equipped with Russian automated systems, which guarantee the identification of Russian aircraft, the defense chief stated.

“The command posts of Syrian air defense forces and units will be equipped with automated control systems only supplied to the Russian armed forces. This will facilitate centralized control over all forces and resources of the Syrian air defense, monitor the situation in the air, and ensure operative issuance of orders. Most importantly, we will guarantee the identification of all Russian aircraft by the Syrian air defense systems,” Shoigu said.

A Russian electronic surveillance Il-20 plane was downed over the Mediterranean Sea late on September 17 when it was flying back to the Russian airbase at Syria’s Hmeymim. According to the Russian defense ministry, the plane was shot down by a missile from a Syrian S-200 air defense complex when it was firing at four Israeli F-16 aircraft attacking targets in the Latakia Governorate. The Israeli pilots actually used the Russian aircraft as a cover, exposing it to Syrian missiles, the ministry stressed.

Looking at a map of military forces and theatres of conflict in Syria is all but incomprehensible at first glance. The nation is strategically located and is the stress point of at least two major powers – Russia and the United States / NATO. The Israelis showed their rather characteristic propensity to mislead and what is surprising is the rather gutsy way they appear to have tried to do this with the Russians. Again, Israel took upon itself the “right” to conduct raids in Syria. The only major power with internationally accepted authority to be there is Russia.

With ISIS effectively defeated, the real nature of the Syrian conflict as a proxy war becomes more evident. President Putin’s handling was masterful, but one can probably expect the level of tension in this region to be especially high now.

If you actually knew what you were talking about you would know Russia didn’t deliver the S300 systems because Israel begged them not to. Putin listened to Israels begging and withheld the S300’s… but Israel couldn’t keep its end of the deal.
Israeli planes will be picked up by the S300 system AS THEY TAKE OFF IN ISRAEL! Israel has just shot itself in the head!

As shown in this article, a Washington-based anti-Assad Syrian group has strongly suggested one solution to controlling Syria:

https://viableopposition.blogspot.com/2018/09/the-next-steps-in-syria-establishing-no.html

Given that approval of the United Nations Security Council is required to take actions in a sovereign nation, it is becoming increasingly clear that Washington ise doing whatever it wants in Syria.

More importantly, the Russian announcement says that they will jam any and all aircraft or missiles attacking Syria over a wide section of Syria and the Mediterranean. They have done so covertly before during the US cruise missile attacks. But now they have made it official. The new automated system will give both Russia and Syria the ability to decide who gets shot down – which is directly a threat against Israel. As I said before, count on Israeli jets being shot down from now on when they attack Syria. Israel is counting on the US to protect them if… Read more »

My advice to Russia, as well as any other nation (understanding that the US, which is Israel’s BITCH, and will continue aiding and abetting the TERROR state of Israel, no matter what), is to do the EXACT opposite of whatever Israel asks or wants! The S300 should have been delivered to Syria long ago and certainly, as soon as Israel requested Russia not to deliver it to Syria! Had this been done, the Israeli, premeditated use of Russian aircraft to veil the IDF fighters (along with its breach of notice requirements and lying as to the flight path of the… Read more »

In a couple of weeks, Syrian airspace will be effectively closed to all but friendly aircraft and not before time. I wonder how those poor little yanks who are now unlawfully occupying Syrian territory will enter and exit Syria – it looks like they’ll be stuck there for quite some time!.

Israel up to now tends to launch missiles from Lebanese or international air space above the Mediterranean with impunity. That will change with the S300 because IDF aircraft returning to Israel can be engaged even up to close to landing. That kind of retribution is probably legal too as a response to being attacked and it requires only one demonstration quite visible to the Israeli public to clarify that its impunity has come to an end.

Unfortunately, John, the answer is yes, welcome to World War 111. There is now no turning back for Amazia, a nation which has lost it’s mind, has become nothing more than the armed forces of the Fatican, as she races toward her short lived One World Church. It is humourous how Amazia, invaded by Europeans fleeing the Fatican, has now finished up being the not so great whore’s hit team. Being a Christian, we see how clearly what is now coming to pass is absolutely Scriptural, as God is tired of the way we have perverted, polluted His world and… Read more »

Russia is now fully justified in arming Syria with the S300 and this upgrade to Syria’s air defense does not go away. Israel has to live with being outed for betraying the spirit of their agreement with Russia and outed for attacking Syria and have lost their chance to play games in the Middle East. Checkmate. Game over.
