The Syrian Arab Air Defense Forces intercepted eight out of 12 missile launched by Israeli fighter jets during the recent attack on T-4 air base in central Syria, Vadim Kulit, deputy chief of the Russian Reconciliation Center in Syria, told reporters on October 9, according to the TASS news agency.

“On October 8 at 21.33, trespassing into airspace of the Syrian Arab Republic near Al-Tanf, six F-16 tactical fighter jets of the Israeli Air Force fired 12 guided missiles at T-4 [Tifor] air base in Homs province,” Kulit said. “The Syrian air defense forces on duty … destroyed eight missiles from the Russian-made Pantsir surface-to-air missile system.”

Kulit confirmed that six Syrian service members were wounded in the attack. The Russian officer also revealed that the air base sustained “minor damage”.

Satellite images revealed that the missiles that managed to reach T-4 air base hit an apron located at the end of the main runway, as well as what appears to be an air-defense site located to the south of the base.

The target of the Israeli attack may have been Iranian weapons or military equipment which were recently deployed in T-4 air base. The base is known to be hosting the main weapons supply center of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in Syria.

Israel continues to launch attacks on Syria on the hope of pushing Iran out from the war-torn country. This, however, will not likely happen anytime soon.

If Israel says they’re defending itself then that’s it. They can wage aggressive war on Syria. No problem. This is the “rules-based international order.”


wrong the IDF top brass are idiots and using this distract their from internal issues.

A strong untied Israel would have invaded already (i don’t know the result of that invasion)


Gantz filled his diapers during 2006, the western media constructed a false narrative that he was not involved. Like saying nuttyahu is sane.


IDF doesn’t have the manpower required for a ground invasion of Syria – and they demographically could not sustain the casualties that would come with it. This is why the Israeli’s sit back and launch US supplied missiles from safety of Lebanese airspace – its all they can really do.

The illegal zionist experiment in Palestine has to stop !! Zionists exterminated to the last genetic for the survival of humanity.

The cost to American Taxpayers of this latest Israeli Air Force attack on Syria runs into a few million dollars but no problem ‘cos the Dims & ReThugs will simply keep filling the leaking jar that is Israel.

Corrupt shithole of Ukropisstan

Israel is sucking the U.S. dry like a vampire, but to be honest they deserve it.


US ‘Forever Wars’ of 2000’s that were instigated by US Neo-Cons, who are primarily fixated on Israeli security, and created wars that largely benefited Israel, were of course paid for by borrowing. Adding trillions in public debt. US public debt RADICALLY increased in period and as result of these wars, that benefited a foreign country, US public debt is at hundreds of thousands per household. The only way for US out of this debt is to actively use inflation – to allow inflation to devalue the dollar’s spending power to effectively diminish the value of the debt. Hint: currently inflation is sharply rising in US and the government doesn’t want to talk about it, or why they are not using usual mechanisms to reign it in.Theses are the long term consequences to average US citizen of pro-Israel/Israel-first US Neo-Con warmonger policies..

They should rather use TOR and Tunguska, they have a 95% intercept rate contrary to the 70-80% of the Pantsir.

Corrupt shithole of Ukropisstan

Also would be time to take out a few Isisraeli jets of the Isis Airfarce.
Lets see if Israel is taff enough to start WWIII over a few Iranians in Syria.

f-16 is the most crashed aircraft in modern aviation history. f 16 dot net.


Problem for Syrians is, they can’t, because IAF hide inside Lebanese airspace. The IAF launch stand off attacks whilst hiding behind Lebanese commercial air traffic. The SAA cannot responsibly fire SAM’s into Lebanese airspace without risk of hitting commercial aircraft. The IAF are too cowardly to approach Syrian border, or overfly Syria itself, and hide behind human shields of civilian commercial air traffic. This is tactical reality of the much (self) hyped Israeli ‘air power’.

Correct, except this attack came from Al Tanf area in the south. And it becomes crystal clear why the Americans have insisted staying in Al Tanf guarding sand – to provide another launching point for israeli attacks.

proud Ukrop "SS"

“intercepted” – no video proof, no photo proof, no substantial evidence to even suggest there were any interceptions. Just another fake news report by southfront to make russian anti air systems sound slightly capable. FAIL!

Corrupt shithole of Ukropisstan

Cry more ukroptrash.
Truth hurts try to handle it…

Corrupt shithole of Ukropisstan

Russian air defense is the best.
Even your shithole of a CIA colony is using them.
And the U.S. cries about every sell…
Better luck next time and stop being beggars…
Not cool.

proud Ukrop "SS"

It failed in Syria, Libya and Armenia. “best” hahaha

Corrupt shithole of Ukropisstan

You spelled succeed wrong.
Isisrael cant do much, they are firing duds.
They cant stop anything.
But its funny to see a a fake ukropnazi funded by jewish oligarchs defending Israeli ziorats…
Pretty is your Greater Israel and New Khazaria projects going…?
Oy vey…?

Hey, genius, do you know what the REAL interception rate in war conditions of the Patriot SAMs was in the First Gulf War, Operation Desert Storm. About 9%!!!! Fantastic american technology of the 80s, hell yeah!!!!. I’ll let you in on a little secret though, you Ukie slave to zio pigs. In the 80s, I had more friends and relatives that worked in the plant that made the Patriots than you can count up to. Raytheon is a massively sh*t corrupt company run by ex military brass that hires thousands of extra personnel to jack up production costs. My friends told me they used to work about 2 hours a day in real terms instead of 8 and spent the rest of the day f*cking off.

it’s easy to tell … the IAF have been raiding Syria continuously since the start of the Syrian war in 2012. They’ve been raiding the Damascus airport every week or two for the last 4 years.

Depending on the ordinance an F-16 carries (F-15 carries more so I’m defaulting to the smallest IAF plane) 4 – 8 bombs / missiles in the ground attack role so lets say on average they carry 6 weapons and lets say the IAF sends up 2 strike aircraft in every package sent to Damascus so that’s 6 X2 X 24 strikes / yr x 4 years … that’s 1152 ‘precision weapons’ dropped on Damascus airport over the last 4 years.

That’s roughly equivelent to a tactical nuke. If all those weapons hit the target the airport shouldn’t exist any more and there’s no way in hell the SAA would have any SAMs left let alone Iranians moving heavy weapons through the airport.

So please explain first how the SAA manages to have air defences to keep the IAF from overflying Syria and second how the Iranians or anyone is still able to use the Damascus airport.

Please, don’t tax his little Jewish brain, it’ll go short circuit!!!


Intercept the platforms and then you might have something.


Time for zionist shitrailians to order more containers of adult diapers. depends stock expected to spike in the next week. Watch the markets!

Rhodium 10

12 missile and caused minor damage because surely 4 of them were just Debris of Delilah cruise misssile


Add a 373 for each missed rocket


What is Syria waiting to give them a tit for that? And exterminate the rat nests from US, UK, Nato, Turky on Syrian soil with the help from Russia and Iran balistic missils. All the coordinates are well known from there basises.

Real Patriot

How is it that the Israelis can just attack Syria with impunity. Syria shoots down their missiles but no planes. Until Syria or Russia actually shoots down an Israeli plane over Syria the S300/400 systems are just a pile of junk that no other country should be buying. It appears that these systems are useless against Israeli planes.
