Israel Threatens To Destroy Syrian Air Defence Systems

Tyler Durden's picture

Two days after Syria claimed it had shot down an Israel jet over its territory on Friday morning, an incident Israel denied even if it admitted violating Syria's sovereign airspace by engaging in an air raid near Palmyra, the Israeli defense minister threatened to destroy Syrian air defenses after they shot (but allegedly did not down) at Israeli warplanes, which violated Syrian airspace and bombed targets on Syrian soil.

Next time, if the Syrian aerial defense apparatus acts against our planes, we will destroy it,” Avigdor Lieberman told Israeli Public Radio on Sunday, in a statement which seemed to lend credence to the Syrian contention that it had taken down an Israel jet.

It was not exactly clear why Israel was so offended by Syria "acting against" its planes which were located above Syrian airspace at the time of shooting. In any case he warned that “we won't hesitate. Israel's security is above everything else; there will be no compromise.”

The minister was referring to the previously reported morning raid of the Israeli Air Force, the latest of several reported over the past few years, in which Israel claimed it targeted weapons bound for the Lebanese militant movement Hezbollah. Israel says it has to protect itself from advanced weapons which the militants try to obtain from the Syrian government. Syria shot surface-to-air S-200 missiles at the Israeli planes as they were flying back from the night mission. As noted above, Damascus claims it shot down one of the planes, although Israel still denies.

The Israeli media said one of the Syrian missiles was intercepted by Israel’s Arrow air defense system. According to RT, it was the first time Israel officials have confirmed combat use of the advanced anti-missiles, which are originally meant to intercept heavy long-range ballistic missiles. The Israeli military is investigating whether the decision to fire Arrow interceptors against the Syrian anti-aircraft missiles was justified, according to Haaretz.

The former prime minister and defense minister, Ehud Barak, said Saturday that the involvement of the system forced Israel to acknowledge cross-border military activity. “It could be that with more thorough thought, it wasn’t worth firing,” Barak said at a community lecture in Be’er Sheva. “We have usually tended to reserve what would be called ‘room for denial’ for Syrian President [Bashar] Assad,” he added.

While Israeli acknowledgment of an intervention in Syria is rare, it is not unprecedented. Last April, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed for the first time that an attack on dozens of Hezbollah targets in Syria was indeed conducted by Israeli warplanes, as speculated by the media.

And, perhaps to give Syria just the opportunity to "provoke" it, on Monday morning, according to several media reports Israel has again bombed a Hezbollah convoy in Syria. It was unclear as of publication time if Syria had retaliated.

"Israel has been providing logistic support and medical assistance to opposition forces – including Jabhet al-Nusra terror organization – fighting President Bashar Assad."

We often quote this sentence from an Al-Masdar News report about Israeli support for Syria's "moderate" rebels. 

It's quite an inflammatory claim though. How could someone write something so insensitive?

This incident is another example of the Israeli government's courageous strategy of shooting an unsuspecting target of opportunity in the back. It confirms that ever since the spanking they received in 2006, the Israeli government is desperately afraid of Hezbollah.

The Zionist scum wants ISIS and al-nusra to succeed in overthrowing Assad oh so badly. ISIS has been a Mo$$ad-asset all along. It is remarkable that ISIS so far never ever publicly threatend Israel (but virtually every other important country on earth. notably, they threatened almost each and every muslim country there is). Just what you would expect from a supposedly radical-islamist outfit.

Equating criticism of Zionism with Anti Semitism is a standard play for Zionists. 

For an alternative perspective from Orthodox Jews, I recommend visiting:

Especially since the vast majority of jews are ashkenazi and not sephardic, and neither are semitic anyway.  In reality, jews are the only real anti-semites based on the way they terrorized, murdered and stole the land from semitic christians and muslims in Palestine.

Not yet, Jubal, but we'll get to it.  And then you'll see a genuine, old-time massacre, fit for the history books and worthy of the Children of G-d.  The day approaches, Jubal, when we see through with the commandments of the Lord.  Until then, the zionists have handcuffed us, too...

Comments I have read thus far from above are all anti-Israeli government, not anti-semitic. 

Just like how I love America, but I hate the American Z.O.G.

nope, he has a point, imho

every time there is an article that could open up some criticism of Israel and of extreme Zionism... the usual Anti-Semites misdirect and the usual pro-Russians tip-toe and blather around

as a reminder, Israel is allied with the US, while Syria is allied with Russia. the targets of those IDF warplanes are allied with Iran

call a spade a spade. trolls are most visible in those contradicting gray areas. if the article was about the EU, Jubal Early would accuse the EU of being "in the thrall of Zionism", as usual, and the Kremlin trolls would applaud and add some. instead, here it's all obfuscation

BobEore's picture

Happy to see a wrench placed in the spokes of ANY orthodoxy, or current meme, Ghordo, but I can't let the canard "anti-semitism" stand any longer. Far too long we've allowed the world's biggest oxymoron a standing it don't deserve... on multiple grounds.

a) would Raymond Kessel complain about any of the sometimes outlandish slurs posted here against 'sand niggers' aka Arabs, the over the top hate porn gainst Muzzies, or the defamation of religious beliefs which would result in instantaneous explusion here if directed against 'chosenites.' Err no. But why not?

b)if our interest were in combating prejudice against "semites" we would logically have to protest the targeting of Arab types - being as they are indeed of Semitic origin... as were the original Hebrews,

c) who had so much in common culturally, linguisitically, and genetically with each other that we could say their family connection is much closer than that of the great mass of Europoids which has been assembled from so many varied rootstocks - including Cro-Magnon - that we are united really more by superficial appearance than blood and language,

d)yet the totally illogical, witless moniker of 'anti-semitism' is EXCLUSIVELY RESERVED for the use of people who -largely - haven't a drop of Semitic blood in their veins - except for the smallish remnant of Sephardic jews who are at the bottom of totem pole in the Terror State.

e)Ashkenazis from eastern Europe and Rus who  make up much the majority of the population of that middle eastern pirate state and the disapora world over are NOT SEMITIC, speak non-semitic languages save for an invented neo-hebrew, and culturally make much noise about being 'European' in values and character. I can hear the shouts now - fo get a bout it - the trace genetic markers of some Cohens who moved to the steppes at the invitation of former empires, and stayed to transfer rabbinical judaism there ARE NOT sufficient evidence to support the idea of SEMITIC heritage.

f)which of course is the classic cake-eat-too cover up of a bullshit racket by which victimhood is transferred from the gazelle to the hyena! Given the all encompassing power of the ONEMEDIA to push this myth and punish all who point out it's absolute absurdity, we will be dealing with it's presence for a long long time it seems. But there's no use in encouraging it!

I otherwise agree with your " and the usual pro-Russians tip-toe and blather around" ...

but would hasten to add that the USA-Israel 'alliance' is no longer in effect. Trumpistan means the arrival of the end for America... once pockets are picked clean.

Setting the stage for which has been the effort to pretend  that the USA-Israel axis still exists. That is does not is the single most important puzzle piece being hidden by all media narratives. The USA will now be thrown under the bus. And the wolves have gathered. Like a bomb rigged to explode at the most inopportune moment - for the victim - the series of negotiations which took Israel's President Rivlin [and the former furniture salesman from Philly] to Ankara and Moscow, then to Warsaw and Brussels, formed a new axis of powers against the Americans."
The Russo-ashenazi mafiya which de facto controls Srael, USA, and most part Russia is dedicated both to exterminating real 'Semites' and all traces of their civilizations, and to achieve pretty much the same ending for the European civilization they both envy and despise.

Who are the Semites? How can you tell a Semite from a non-Semite? If you consider those warring, unjust, cruel, conniving, psychopathic assholes ruling Israel as the only true Semites, then, many people would be happy to be called anti-Semites 'cos we are all anti-assholes. These psychopaths have indirectly (but knowingly) placed ordinary Jews in a dangerous, precarious position in society.

"These psychopaths have indirectly (but knowingly) placed ordinary Jews in a dangerous, precarious position"

As an ordinary white person of Northern European descent I have had to deal with an unending stream of kike propaganda of my race's misdeads: the Holocaust, Indian genocide, colonization, inquisition, you name it.  Well its about time "ordinary jews" take their boots off of the goy's necks so we can discuss some of the far more numerous travesties that Jews have committred.  There are 30 million Russian travesties from 1917-1940, the 20 million German travesties from 1945, the thousands of travesites committed on a regular basis in Palestine.

But lets start here, jews:

Jews won't talk about that.  Instead they insist on bombarding us with Halocaust while muzzling any real discussion of it.

Ghordius's picture

and as a white person of European descent living in the EU I have to deal with an eunending stream of propaganda about/against the EU... on top of what you just mentioned

and some of it is... from you

meanwhile, you are in the US, which is the main military ally of Israel... while no EU country is

and this since the US and the Soviet Union together called off a Franco-British-Israeli invasion of Egypt, in 1954, ending the period in history in which you seem to be stuck, mentally

Jubal Early's picture

"meanwhile, you are in the US"

Wrong answer slavery loving jew-puppet.

"Franco-British-Israeli invasion of Egypt, in 1954, ending the period in history"

As far as the jews who are genociding Europe with this muslim invastion are concerned, this period of history goes back to Titus Flavius 2000 years ago.  It ain't over until they say it is, and that will probably shortly after the force the goyim to accept the chip, digital currency, and noahide laws.

Ghordius's picture

LOL "slavery loving jew-puppet"... in the EU?

you see? you go back to Titus Flavius. not after 1954

Jubal Early's picture

Not only are you a jew slave, you think you are as clever as one.  Hitler wanted his 1000 year reich, but he failed to stop the jewish march to world tyranny.  Since he failed, we are still living within the jew-reich.  And their control is nearly complete as is reflected in your useless, senseless brainless posts.

Still calling me a troll, Ghordius.

But your post doesn't make sense anyway, but I think you are closer to the truth than usual.  The EU (specifically Denmark but most EU Nato members too) acting as the Kike pawns that they are, violated the day old cease fire and bombed the Syrian army at del ezzor for 2 hours using a10's and f16's in order to allow ISIS (Mossad) to gain control of the entire Euphraties valley.   There is no disputing it, the EU was formed to destroy the goy.  Just ask any Greek.

Ghordius's picture

Jubal, the article is about Israel and Syria

and what do you do? you go back to History Channel, Europe and so on

those Danish warplanes? were actually Belgian warplanes, and... they are back home

meanwhile, that Turkish policeman did not shoot a Belgian or a Danish ambassador for the breking of a ceasefire. he assassinated a Russian diplomat, remember?

nope. we were there, we even tried to keep Russians and Turks from shooting too often on each other. that job is done, now

I do not accuse you of being a troll, just of trolling. like in your "the EU was formed to destroy the goy"

Ghordius's picture

LOL, again. A Russia Insider article... of last year

that was still when Turks were shooting down Russian planes, wasn't it?

and before another Russian diplomat was assassinated

DEMIZEN's picture

lets call spade a spade. i really dont care about the zionist crap and etc.. when risen to power the clique will defend power, mysticism aside..

it is the syrian defenses, israel threathen to shoot down, not iranian. you cant expect the the syrian DF just to watch and scratch their heads can you? It is very obvious Israel supports ISIS in their efforts maybe even finance them. When the FSA and the rest of holy jihadist realize they been played by israel to topple assad, they will turn against the real enemy and i think we are about to witness a major shitshow in the golan area.


Honestly i am not quite sure about the sides in conflict myself, but one thing is clear. israel never had and will never have any real friends in middle east. US will surely support IDF materially but will never send troups to middle east if shit gets out of control. Needless to say, they occuppy golan illegaly, against the UN resolution.


So you bet the Israel is a bit anxious. Egypt thinktanks have probably analysed the recent events and, too, have a good idea what happened and who supported whom during the color revolutions in NA. Again, israel has no friends in mena. Maybe Saudis, but will have their hands busy with Iran if shit breaks loose and i have hands full of enemies on its own peninsula and african horn.


If I was israel, id stay away from these raids. because of near zero impact on ground and cause way too much stir internationally.



Snípéir_Ag_Obair's picture

no he does not judging by the comments above his.

your own comments here are a muddle of irrelevancy and bias.

positing that Israel does bad acts and providing evidence (whether or not conclusive) inevitable leads to whining about 'antisemitism'

meanwhile criticism of russia scarecely ever results in charges of 'anti Russian hate'.

The *misdirect* by people *trolling* (as you are here on this thread) is CRYING ANTISEMITE to avoid discussion on the merits.

You simply don't know what you are talking about.

But if its negative about Israel, rather than play Raymond's game, why not address the fucking allegations made?

Nona Yobiznes's picture

Very important distinction. Criticism of Israel is NOT anti-Semitism. Just like opposing the Zionist, Jewish-supremacist internationalists does not equate to a hatred of your typical Jew. 

"In the past, an anti-Semite was someone who didn't like Jews. Nowadays, it is anyone who the Jews don't like". That basically sums it up.

What the media misses in the Syrian bloodbath: a 'thank you' to Hillary from Israel

Wikileaks has released what may be the most under-reported story of the year in a year full of them, Hillary Clinton's uncanny fulfillment of Oded Yinon's plan for the Middle East according to Israel 30 years ago. This was summed up in Yinon's "A Strategy for Israel in the Nineteen Eighties." Yinon, an influential right-wing Israeli strategist, envisioned a Middle East riven with conflict between Arab tribes and religious denominations, unable to oppose Israeli ambitions for regional dominance.

Yinon wrote:
"Iraq, rich in oil on the one hand and internally torn on the other, is guaranteed as a candidate for Israel's targets. Its dissolution is even more important for us than that of Syria. Iraq is stronger than Syria. In the short run it is Iraqi power which constitutes the greatest threat to Israel...Every kind of inter-Arab confrontation will assist us in the short run and will shorten the way to the more important aim of breaking up Iraq into denominations as in Syria and in Lebanon."

The Yinon Plan, “Greater Israel”, Syria, Iraq, and ISIS: the Connection

The Zionist Plan for the Middle East, also known as the Yinon Plan, is an Israeli strategic plan to ensure Israeli regional superiority. It insists and stipulates that Israel must reconfigure its geo-political environment through the balkanization of the surrounding Arab states into smaller and weaker states.

Reach of a "Greater Israel"When viewed in the current context, the war on Iraq, the 2006 war on Lebanon, the 2011 war on Libya, the ongoing war on Syria, not to mention the process of regime change in Egypt, must be understood in relation to the Zionist Plan for the Middle East. The latter consists in weakening and eventually fracturing neighboring Arab states as part of an Israeli expansionist project.

“Greater Israel” consists in an area extending from the Nile Valley to the Euphrates.

Israeli strategists viewed Iraq as their biggest strategic challenge. This is why Iraq was outlined as the centerpiece to the balkanization of the Middle East and the Arab World. In Iraq, on the basis of the concepts of the Yinon Plan, Israeli strategists have called for the division of Iraq into a Kurdish state and two Arab states, one Shiite and the other Sunni.

The Atlantic, in 2008, and the U.S. military’s Armed Forces Journal, in 2006, both published widely circulated maps that closely followed the outline of the Yinon Plan. Aside from a divided Iraq, the Yinon Plan calls for a divided Lebanon, Egypt, and Syria. The Yinon Plan also calls for dissolution in North Africa and forecasts it as starting from Egypt and then spilling over into Sudan, Libya, and the rest of the region.

“Greater Israel” requires the breaking up of the existing Arab states into small states. The plan operates on two essential premises. To survive, Israel must

become an imperial regional power, and
must effect the division of the whole area into small states by the dissolution of all existing Arab states.

Small here will depend on the ethnic or sectarian composition of each state. Consequently, the Zionist hope is that sectarian-based states become Israel’s satellites and, ironically, its source of moral legitimation… This is not a new idea, nor does it surface for the first time in Zionist strategic thinking. Indeed, fragmenting all Arab states into smaller units has been a recurrent theme.

Viewed in this context, the war on Syria is part of the process of Israeli territorial expansion. Israeli intelligence working hand in glove with the US, Turkey and NATO is directly supportive of the Al Qaeda terrorist mercenaries inside Syria.

Why Does Israel Support ISIS?

From the outset of the foreign-sponsored insurrection in Syria, Israel has decidedly backed the armed opponents of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Reports have shown that Israeli forces have been providing safe haven, hospital care and even weaponry to anti-Assad militants, including to the most radical outfits like ISIS and Al-Nusra Front. On top of material and logistical aid, the Israeli air force has unleashed dozens of air strikes on Syrian regime and allied Hezbollah targets throughout the conflict.

Top Israeli officials have repeatedly stressed that they would “prefer” an ISIS victory in Syria over an Assad victory.

The reasons for this are pretty straightforward:
1) The barbaric, savage atrocities conducted by ISIS in Syria and Iraq garners tremendous bad press for Islam in general, which translates into good or less negative coverage of Israel and its criminal activities. ISIS’s cruel and unusual methods of execution (i.e., beheadings, crucifixions, immolations, drownings, stoning, throwing people off of buildings, etc.), which it openly flaunts in macabre propaganda videos, provokes extremely bad headlines which have obscured any sense of proportional coverage of Israel’s ongoing brutality against the Palestinians. With ISIS dominating the headlines and TV newsreels, Israel escapes international opprobrium and has a free hand to act.

2) By using the word “Islamic” in their official title, ISIS’s atrocious acts of brigandry are automatically associated with Islam generally by the less-than-astute general public, which induces fear and animosity towards the entire religion and any group associated with it. Knowing this, Netanyahu and other Israeli imperialists have employed guilt-by-association fallacies to demonize the Muslim groups in conflict with Israel by falsely equating them to ISIS; groups like Hamas and Hezbollah, both of which have condemned the atrocities of ISIS, and the latter organization being on the frontline in Syria in the fight against the terror group. Hostility towards Islam in this day and age usually induces feelings of sympathy and affinity for the Jews and Israel, whose main rivals are Arab and Muslim countries and groups.
