The war in Syria continues to heat up despite being overshadowed by the conflict in Ukraine. The most recent escalation in the war was an Israeli attack that reportedly triggered Russia.
The attack, which took place on May 13, targeted complex of the Syrian Scientific Studies and Research Center (SSRC) located near the town of Masyaf in the western countryside of Hama. The SSRC is Syria’s main military research and development institution.
Israeli fighter jets launched the attack from international airspace off the Syrian coast. The jets fired 22 guided missiles during the attack, at least 16 of which were intercepted by Syrian air defenses. A drone which also took part in the attack was shot down.
The Israeli attack claimed the lives of three air defense servicemen and two civilian workers of the SSRC. Two soldiers were also wounded as a result of the attack along with five civilians, including a little girl.
In a report on May 16, Israel’s Channel 13 said that Russian forces opened fire on Israeli fighter jets from an S-300 air-defense missile system during the attack.
According to the report, Syrian S-300 batteries commanded by the Russian military opened fire as the Israeli fighter jets were flying on their way back. The report alleged that the S-300 radar did not lock onto the fighter jets and thus did not present a serious threat to them.
The report comes amid deterioration in relations between Israel and Russia. Recently, Israel became more critical of the Russian operation in Ukraine and began providing non-lethal equipment to Kiev forces. The alleged S-300 launch was seen as a Russian signal to Israel that it was changing its policy when it comes to attacks on Syria.
The US-led coalition also had its share of escalation in Syria. On May 16, an indirect fire attack targeted a base of the coalition near the town of al-Shaddadi in the southern countryside of al-Hasakah in the northeastern region.
Several projectiles targeted the base, which is located within a large oil and gas field. According to the Syrian Arab News Agency, one of the projectiles hit the base’s main airfield, while another hit a drone maintenance facility. No casualties were reported as a result of the attack.
Iranian-backed Syrian and Iraqi forces were unofficially blamed for previous attacks on US-led coalition forces in northeastern Syria. However, there is still no evidence linking them to the alleged attack on al-Shaddadi base.
Meanwhile in central Syria, Syrian government forces and the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) continue their operations against ISIS cells.
As of May 15, at least 236 Russian airstrikes have hit personnel, equipment and hideouts of ISIS in central Syria, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
The VKS’s intense operations have forced ISIS cells in central Syria to lay low. However, the terrorists may resume their attacks very soon.
While the terrorist group was not that active in the central region, it did carry out attacks near the Syrian capital, Damascus.
On May 14, a Syrian warrant officer was killed and a soldier was wounded when their vehicle was ambushed near the frontline with the US-occupied area of al-Tanf to the east of Damascus by militants believed to be members of the terrorist group.
On May 16, ISIS claimed responsibility for an attack that killed two government fighters and wounded another in the town of Der Khabeyah, which is located some 20 kilometers to the southwest of Damascus city center.
ISIS’s news agency, Amaq, claimed that the attack targeted two vehicles of government forces. Both vehicles struck with improvised explosive devices.
Despite strict measures by the Syrian military, intelligence and security forces, ISIS cells are apparently still operating in Damascus countryside.
Meanwhile in the northwestern region of Greater Idlib, the situation remains unstable due to the repeated attacks by al-Qaeda-affiliated Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and its Turkish-backed allies.
On May 18, a reconnaissance aircraft of the VKS, reportedly a Beriev A-50 airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) aircraft, was targeted with a missile while flying on a mission over the region. The missile failed to hit the aircraft.
While some Syrian opposition activists claimed that the missile was launched from a position of the Turkish Armed Forces, others said that it was fired by militants from the al-Fateh al-Mubeen Operations Room, which is led HTS.
The situation in Greater Idlib and the rest of Syria will not likely stabilize any time soon, especially with the current halt in the political process. In fact, Syria could experience major confrontations fueled by the West and its allies once the conflict in Ukraine is over.
Better luck next time Syria.
Syria hasn’t done anything to Israel.
Except do multiple failed invasion of Israel that how Syria lost the golan heights you never heard of the six day war or any of the other invasions Syria took part in their rivals just like a lot of other countries are
stop crying jew nazi parazite !!!
As is usual for Israeli liars. Israel instigated all the wars, regardless the lies they tell. Isntreal is behind all wars world-wide through their proxy, the US/NATO. They attack friend and foe alike, why? Because they have no use for any country, even those they own…which is the entire west. If Israel were to disappear, wars would too. Isn’t it silly to have to do an edit to get a comment to post? But, that’s the way Israel likes it.
It is about time, Russia started using the S-400s and shot a few of those flying pointed noses down. I am sick of their arrogance.. it has to be stopped otherwise it will get worse. Sharpen the pitch forks; I know which side I am on. No offence intended, the above irritated me.
Russia should have responded sooner. There can be NO negotiations with Talmudic Terrorists!!! ALL jews should be treated as the jews are treating the Palestinians.
Shireen Abu Akleh, an Al Jazeera journalist, was deliberately murdered by Israeli snipers. Her funeral procession was attacked by judaic police thugs.
1 Palestinian dead = 6 jews dead.
Every person on the planet should:
1. give birth and raise a child.
2. Build a house.
3. Plant a tree.
4. Kill one Jew!
Hehe now how can that affirmation stand up to scrutiny. I thought this was a site for realists.

ISIS is just a new name of Israel.
Jewish State and Islamic State are similar evils. The main difference is that Jewish State infiltrated and corrupted western politics and media.
The Islamic State created the Jewish State. It’s a Jewish baby!!
Israeli organisation has been created by Europe and now assisted by NATO (the mother of global terrorist organisations).
NATO has committed crimes of changing legitimate leaders with their own puppet regimes in the majority of countries.
Remember when General Titus and the Roman Army destroyed Jerusalem and Judea in 70 AD just as Jesus said would Happen? I await the second act of the play. But instead of just Judea and Jerusalem in the Middle East, it will be a world wide Judea and Jerusalem as foretold in Ezechiel 38 & 39, and Apocalypse 20. Come Lord Jesus!
That makes no sense to supposedly have the S-300 active, but not lock radar onto the IAF jets. Until there is proof that the Syrians actually used the S-300, it is all hearsay and propaganda. That, or the system failed. Up until this point, we have not seen Syria use the S-300. They have continued to use their old S-200 systems, with whatever “upgrades” they manage to do with such old Soviet electronics.
It was “old Soviet electronics” and some of Tesla’s heirs who shot down an F-117 “wobblin’ goblin” and consequently with it shot down the entire fleet since it proved it wasn’t so stealthy after all, at least not to old soviet air defense radar.
Russia please start shooting them down with S-400 you have on the coast
And hand the Jews the S-400 pulse rate frequencies and a free air show of the missile capabilities over nickel and dime Jew propaganda missile attacks on outhouses in the Syrian desert? The Russians are patient, not stupid. When and if it comes time to destroy the IAF, that will be done when they are on the ground, along with their base. Besides the Jews already got the memo from the Iranian missile that penetrated to the Dimona nuclear weapons site. The Jew Iron Dome has a few holes in it and every time the Jews have an Iron Dome orgasm they are dependent on the US to hand them more free rockets for reload and restock.
How come Russian air defence could not shoot down all misiles and planes in order to protect the target??? Is Russian air defence completely useless??
They shot down most of the missiles, dummy.
Okay Gay Ranger 😂
That is not good enough. We have heard so much about Russian air defence superiority lately. I guess it was just a lot of propaganda.
it wasnt even their second newest one
Don’t be a dolt. You can’t hit what you don’t lock on to.
Well seens you don’t know shit from your fake bum chummys blanket,that is your problem,
No,your the demented useless fascist fuk that can barely shoot down any Russian cruiser missile,dud!
russia & it’s allies are getting their azzes kicked everywhere!!!
You must have aids,smallpox or spomething real bad asswipe,you deplorable insolent lieing filth,pfft!
Time to force the US out of Syria once and for all. Israeli jets aiming to bomb Syria should be shot down as they’ll never stop this activity until they lose aircraft and pilots.
if this fake news was actually true it would go to show the S300 is useless junk as many had wondered before, but let’s not be too hasty, for this news is as fake as Putin saviour complex, and when the Israelis attack Syria next, we’ll all know it was as fake as gay ranger’s fake profiles on here 😂
Begone soros poofter,you fool no one here (period) You are delusional thus mental health issue,P00F!
Soros is anti-zionist and Biden-Obama have favored strengthening Iran. You guys are seem to be in a major bubble. :(
When IAF fighter jets engage VKS fighters, I will believe Israel and Russia are adverse. Until then this is entirely a charade.
The irony of these commenters is how they are against washington overreach yet stand with some really terrible groups.
I prefer looking critically at both/all sides.
I wish Russia would use a hypersonic emp and a nuke on Israel. But Putin is backed by Jewish billionaires.
According most DNA studies European Jews were not really Hebrews. Especially their mitocondrial mtDNA (mother lineage) is very, very much European. Studies are revealing there was never post Christ great scale Exodus from Palestine to Europe. Most European Jews are descents of converted pagans.
Un agréée with you, Mr Elgar, it is true
You can find a free pdf of this book easily on line. The thirteenth Tribe. History of the Khazar
Fake juice originally spawned in rump Ukropland…surprise suprise….
Author : Koestler Arthur
Title : The Thirteenth Tribe The khazar empire and its heritage
Year : 1976
This book traces the history of the ancient Khazar Empire, a major but almost forgotten power in Eastern Europe, which in the Dark Ages became converted to Judaism. Khazaria was finally wiped out by the forces of Genghis Khan, but evidence indicates that the Khazars themselves migrated to Poland and formed the cradle of Western Jewry… The Khazars’ sway extended from the Black Sea to the Caspian, from the Caucasus to the Volga, and they were instrumental in stopping the Muslim onslaught against Byzantium, the eastern jaw of the gigantic pincer movement that in the West swept across northern Africa and into Spain. In the second part of this book, “The Heritage,” Mr. Koestler speculates about the ultimate faith of the Khazars and their impact on the racial composition and social heritage of modern Jewry. He produces a large body of meticulously detailed research in support of a theory that sounds all the more convincing for the restraint with which it is advanced. Yet should this theory be confirmed, the term “anti-Semitism” would become void of meaning, since, as Mr. Koestler writes, it is based “on a misapprehension shared by both the killers and their victims. The story of the Khazar Empire, as it slowly emerges from the past, begins to look like the most cruel hoax which history has ever perpetrated.” …
Amazing how modern genetic science proved Koestler correct after decades.
True 10000% – just Google “Eran Elhaik” and “Professor Oppenheim” – both are Khazars, both from Israel and Both Geneticists who proved the same thing – 85% Israelis are Ashkenazis who are European descent and do not have semitic roots (did not originate from the original 12 tribes) and have no connection therefore to Palestine historically – they are converts to the Jewish faith only.
Israeli Air Force – the Air Force of ISIS
Humanity cannot afford to continue to indulge the crimes of the evil welfare warfare abomination in apartheid occupied Palestine. It is time to crush khaZar scum on the ground. It is inevitable when USSA blows and its Saudi Mercan toilet paper dollah gets flushed from the global ponzi sewer that the khaZar entity in Palestine will shrivel and die without its accustomed USSAN tax cattle tribute. Russia needs to shoot these demons out of the sky exactly like it destroys their khaZar cousins in rump Ukropland.
Bomb Red Shield criminal syndicate Israhell flat already!
Isael needed a third wave of strikes after the first two barrages failed,completely,the 3rd had more success 6/22 hits,so these sodomised trolls talking about russian fail are only delusional born losers!
So of 22 missiles, 16 was shot down and 6 hit the target. So if NATO send 100 nuclear missiles, 27 will hit the 27 largest cities In Russia. I guess nobody is safe in this world.
please note that the S-300 is obsolete and only 70% work well the S-400 efficiency is 90-95% the latest S-500 and S-550 are 98% and 99%
Its also time to level Al-tanf garrison to zero. And it should be done directly from Russian Forces, not proxies
time to roast some jews, i would kill those fuckers for free, they are the real evil in history and today. they need to die
Flatten El tanf.. problem done…there you go
Russia is at war with Israel – like it or not – as Israel is costing Russia major resources in Syria and now in Ukraine.
When the Ukranian conflict is over the west will be on the way out, but that’s years down the track. Anyhow meanwhile the Russians are now waking up to the fact that jews are out to bring Russia down, once upon a time a jew maggot could claim credit for the creating the Soviet Union, that idea died when Trotsky got his hair parted in the center with a meat cleaver.
Jews are being forced to side with the US, so this is the reason why Allah (swt) is nurturing the Ukranian special operatuon, i got a feeling Odessa is next, fingers crossed everyone that would be great, this is a tidal wave and President Putin is riding it all the way to Transnistria.
Now that half the bankster kikes in Putins govt have fled the country, following the slimy tracks of Chubais, maybe he Russian will finally get serious about SUPPORTING IRAN, and stop BACKSTABBING IRAN in Syria.Maybe Putin will get smart and throw the other half of the bankster kikes in prison and form a government with the patriotic forces of Russia. Its possible. In a world where queer TV clown can become “president” of Jewkraine and a pants shitting 90 year old dementia patient can rule half the world from washington, i suppose anything is possible.
