Beirut asks for Russia’s air defense net to cover Lebanon as well as Syria

Exclusive: Lebanese President Michel Aoun has asked Moscow to bring Lebanese air space under the protection of the Russian air defense system being deployed in Syria, DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources reveal. President Vladimir Putin has not yet replied to the request which Aoun posted through back channels. But neither has he so far turned him down. For now, it is under discussion at the highest levels of the Russian defense ministry, which tend to recommend approval.

According to our sources, the framing of Beirut’s request went through several drafts with the help of President Aoun’s friend and ally, Hizballah’s leader Hassan Nasrallah, until he approved it – meaning, until Tehran approved it. If Putin decides to grant the Lebanese request for Russian air defense cover, Israel would face a further Russian restraint on its air force’s operations in the eastern Mediterranean, over and above the powerful Russian air defense system which is in the last stages of deployment in Syria. This system is composed of S-300, S-400 and Pantsir-S1E air defense missiles, boosted by layers of medium- and short-range anti-air batteries and an advanced electronic warfare network. This sophisticated edifice was designed by Moscow to provide the ultimate answer to any aerial threats the US and Israeli warplanes were capable of posing from Syria’s skies.

Putin’s accession to the Lebanese request would provide Hizballah, Iran’s proxy, for the first time with an umbrella by a world power against a potential Israeli air attack.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s assurance to the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Security Committee on Sunday, Nov. 18 that Israel’s air force faces no restrictions in its operations over Syria, is far from realistic in the light of Russia’s counter-measures. As for his assertion that the air force slowed those operations because Iran had reduced its arms deliveries to that country, DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence fill in this picture. Iran has in fact completed its current round of war materiel shipments to Hizballah and was able to do so during the pause in Israel air strikes. The most alarming item reaching the Lebanese terrorists were components for upgrading Hizballah’s surface rockets with precision guidance GPS. This upgrading has been going forward in dozens of small workshops distributed across Lebanon and parts of Syria. If Putin agrees to extend Russian air defense cover to Lebanon, those workshops will be that much harder for Israeli bombers to destroy – thrusting another major Russian spoke in Israel’s security wheel.

      What is the problem ? There is an agreement for the past 20 years signed via agreement by Israel , Lebanon , France and USA , as well with the help of Russia , that helped with removal of scads from Lebanon for non flying zone over Lebanon, without approval of Lebanese . Israel does not “really” using Lebanese airspace and not endangering separation force of Unifil or other , funded by world wide community . The agreement is still in force , and Israel should keep with its signed agreement to keep peace and not make war , even though they use often Becka valley , or Mediterranean shore for their flights against its own agreement and acceptance .After all there was quiet between 2 countries . Iran , and Syria and others have military and financial interests in Lebanon , but than so is France, Belgium , Italy , Germany and many others. Israel should follow its own agreements and not USA , that soon will be put in its own place by many countries .

    I been saying it all along- RUSSIA is an ENEMY of Israel- they are the worse than the arabs as they are giving the arabs means to destroy Israel.

    The slavic russians have always been envious of the West and the Jews- they have always persecuted Jews using their inferiority complex as base reason. They are liars and never to be trusted.

    As I say- Israel needs a strong leader not a bibi pipi wimpi. A leader to have hit the S-300s in syria as they were employed as they are a syrian threat to Israel whether manned by slavs or arabs. And a strong leader to hit the hezollah precision weapons in lebanon now not later. And if S-300s cover lebanon then to hit the S-300s.

    What is Israel waiting for? An attack on Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem with precision guided rockets from gaza with 1,000 rockets? And an attack at the same time from lebanon with precision rockets with 10,000 rockets? What madness.

    Israel is weak. The arabs know it as do their slav backers of evil. Remember the 1980s pre-emptive strike by Israeli F16s on the iraqi nuke reactor? Those days are gone. Weak bibi pipi wimpi sucking putin’s toes has got us nowhere. So pathetic.

      ‘just call me Bibi wibi, baby!’

      Woe is to the crown of the pride of the drunkards of Ephraim …for a complete destruction have I heard from the Lord God of Hosts upon the entire land.

      Woe is to the crown of the pride of the drunkards of Ephraim and the young fruit of an inferior fig is the position of his glory, which is at the end of a valley of fatness, crushed by wine.
      2Behold God [has] a strong and powerful [wind], like a downpour of hail, a storm of destruction, like a stream of powerful, flooding water, He lays it on the land with [His] hand.
      3With the feet, they shall be trampled, the crown of the pride of the drunkards of Ephraim.
      4And his glorious beauty shall be the young fruit of an inferior fig, which is on the head of the valley of fatness; as a fig that ripens before the summer, which, if the seer sees it, he will swallow it while it is still in his hand.
      5On that day, the Lord of Hosts shall be for a crown of beauty and for a diadem of glory, for the rest of His people.
      6And for a spirit of justice to him who sits in judgment, and for might for those who bring back the war to the gate.
      7These, too, erred because of wine and strayed because of strong wine; priest and prophet erred because of strong wine, they became corrupt because of wine; they went astray because of strong wine, they erred against the seer, they caused justice to stumble.
      8For all tables were filled with vomit and ordure, without place.
      9Whom shall he teach knowledge and to whom shall he explain the message? To those weaned from milk, removed from breasts?
      10For a precept for a precept, a precept for a precept, a line for a line, a line for a line, a little there, a little there.
      11For with distorted speech and in another language, does he speak to this people.
      12For he said to them, “This is the rest; give rest to the weary, and this is the tranquility,” but they would not listen.
      13And the word of the Lord shall be for them a precept for a precept, a precept for a precept, a line for a line, a line for a line, a little there, a little there, in order that they go and stumble backwards and be broken, and be trapped and caught.
      14Therefore, listen to the word of the Lord, men of scorn, allegorists of this people who are in Jerusalem.
      15For you said, “We have made a treaty with death, and with the grave we have set a limit; when an overflowing scourge passes, it shall not come upon us, for we have made lies our shelter and in falsehood have we hidden ourselves.
      16Therefore, so has the Lord God said: “Behold, I have laid as a foundation a stone in Zion, a fortress stone, a costly cornerstone, a foundation well founded; the believer shall not hasten.
      17And I will make justice the line, and righteousness the plummet, and hail shall sweep away the shelter of lies, and water shall flood the hidingplace.
      18And your treaty with death shall be nullified, and your limit with the grave shall not endure; when an overflowing scourge passes, you shall be trampled by it.
      19When it passes, it shall take you, for every morning it shall pass, by day and by night, and it shall be only terror to understand the message.
      20For the bed is too short for one to stretch, and the ruler-it shall be narrow when he enters.
      21For like the mountain of breaches shall the Lord arise, like the valley in Gibeon He shall be incensed; to perform His deed, strange is His deed, and to perform His work, strange is His work.
      22And now, do not scorn, lest your pains become strong, for a complete destruction have I heard from the Lord God of Hosts upon the entire land.

      Don’t blame the Slavs for this since Russia treats fellow Slavic countries like Poland and Ukraine very badly. Russia has better relations with Iran than with other Slavic countries. This is mostly due to Iran having the second largest natural gas reserves after Russia. Russia want to continue to have a monopoly over natural gas sales to Europe. Currently, Russia has a pipeline deal with Turkey and is positioned in Syria’s coast to control any natural gas coming from Iran into Syria and to Europe. Russia is also profiting from the billions in arms sales to Iran and Iran paying Russia to help it in Syria. These billions are from the money that Obama released to Iran for the nuclear deal. Putin is not happy with Bibi bypassing him regarding natural gas from Israel. Also, Putin is eyeing the Golan Heights crude oil as a way to pay for the billions needed to restore Syria.

    Time is right now to fire bomb all Hezbollah rocket installations in Lebanon before the Soviets get a chance to even finish considering setting up any S-300 or S-400 installations there.

    Since Hamas has already broken the so-called “cease fire” by sending drones laden with bombs into Israel (it doesn’t matter if there were only a couple of them at this point in time), it’s time to completely cut off all electricity, water and transfers of everything and anything into Gaza.

    Europeans must be happy that the Soviets are no longer a threat to them since they obviously no longer have any eye on taking over Europe………………they now just want to take over the Middle East!

    My take on this is that If Israel decides that Russian assets must go, then that will happen one way or another. IF Russia takes this step their forces there are truly in trouble. They may repel some IDF efforts but they are an expeditionary force – the same as Iran, and attempts to support and re-supply will see Russian aircraft and warships destroyed. This absolutely heading to a massive showdown. I don’t like anyones chances of coming out of this without horrendous loss. Just go home Putin while you can.

      Israel will not have to bow neither are they going to bow. Russia and all their allies will come again Israel but will fail miserably. The funny thing about it, Israel won’t have to do anything. For those who aren’t aware of prophecy, all this that’s happening is setting the stage for the destruction of Russia and their Islamic bed partners who think they’ll destroy Israel. Israel will remain and take careful notice that their enemies will loose more than 75 percent of their military might without firing a shot. If you don’t believe this, read Ezekiel chapter 38,39. Just in case you don’t believe the Word of God, the God and Father of Jesus Christ, that won’t make any difference, it’s going to happen anyway. When it does, maybe some people will wake up and understand Who is the one and true God and it’s not allah. Just wait and see that when the dust has settled down, Israel will still be standing.

    Unfortunately, Israel is not as creative as it used to be militarily. Currently, Iraq’s airspace is controlled by the U.S. who is an ally of Israel. Israel should ask the U.S. for permission to bomb all Iranian arms convoys that go through Iraq and into Syria and Lebanon. The Iranians are transporting most of the weapons that get to Hezbollah through Iraq. Russia does not have any control over the Iraqi skies. Thus, Israel should be destroying these Iranian arms before they get to Syria. Also, Israel should be helping to arm Ukraine as well as the Free Syrian Army. If it is obvious that Russia will want to protect Hezbollah in Lebanon by offering this air cover, Israel should gut out Hamas and Islamic Jihad out of Gaza and help to destroy the Houthis in Yemen since they are anti-Israel and anti-Semitic.

    ‘The Shia Crescent’s S-300 Shia Shield’

    Essentially a ‘S-300 Iron Curtain’ has descended all along Israels entire ‘northern borders’, down over the entirety of Israel itself including BG airspace, and now protects the entire ‘Shia Crescent’ from Tehran to Damascus to the Mediterranean.

    Lebanon is ALREADY COVERED as well, this request is just a public formality

    Mach 14 is greased lightning fast – no pun originally intended (The Israelis named their free F35s the ‘Lightning’ and the S300PMU3/which is the s400 was DESIGNED to target them)

    Mach 14 is 11,000 mph – the speed of several of the S-400 missiles (such as the 40N6E with range of 400km) which can be vectored in on a northbound raid on Lebanon or Syria, even if it were ‘standing off’ over BG or over it’s own airbase. Linked offshore radar cover the entire Israeli costal plan without the Golani interference

    So the Neocon/Israeli hasbara touted ‘Shia Crescent’ now has a ‘S-300 Shia Shield’ – and it’s of a caliber that is the envy of Israeli missile manufactors and they cannot hold a candle to it

    The S300 Shia Shield allows Anti-access/area denial of Israel, currently being enjoyed by Iran and Syria, soon to Turkey, India, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and countries all over the world etc etc. Israel has no answer for them – listen to the IAF brass themelves

    The IAF is on record as being forced to acknowledge that the IAF is completely outclassed by the system, with BG itself currently under the operational Anti-access/area denial envelope, and the IAF brass was forced to publically admit that they had no counter for the strategic gamechange. It was a real shocker when they had to publically admit it a few years ago

    Anti-access/area denial to Israel means any standoff will have to come from Israel itself, while fully lit up on S300PMU2Favorit/S400 Triumpf [and from the Russian point of view the beauty is that the checkmated IAF never precisely knows which missiles are at which batteries, amongst other wrinkles, and therefore has to prepare for the whole inventory of missiles). The S300 batteries just lit the Israeli jets up a couple times last month, as widely reported in Israeli papers

    Ehud Barak’s windows of opportunity on Iran were slammed shut after the 2015 Iran Deal BECAUSE of the S300PMU2 and upgrades.

    S400 Triumpf is really just the S300PMU3

    ‘hermetically sealed’ = ‘expected heavy losses in a complex S300 electronic environment’

    Anti-access/area denial to Israel of Lebanon, Syria, Iran, and soon Turkey, Saudi Arabia as it modernizes out of Saudi Israelia/propped up monarchy. Then Egypt and Iraq and then no more flying over other countries anymore for the IAF, just like everybody else

    Israeli strategic calculus has a bad case of hiccups now

    Thanks Debka, the news just keeps on getting better. Nuclear stockpiles for Hezbollah would be a great option, I recommend Russia work on that one as well. You see Israel with its tale between their legs from s300? Imagine what nukes would do. This is great news for women and children and so many reasons, but also because your nuclear arsenal can be shot from the sky like incendiary kites fired from the open air prison-mates of Gaza, if you ever choose to nuke the planet. We have many plans for Israels nukes as you may have noticed. Keep up the great works Russia, and the rest of you. Long live Syria, long live Iran, long live Hezbollah, long live Palestine, long live Russia.

      Amen God bless Russia and those standing a against this Talmudic parasite, as it is written “they that sow the wind, shall reap the whirlwind”.

      May they be cast down into the darkness never to return.
