Syrian sources: We repelled “hostile targets” over Al-Kiswah

Syrian sources, including the official news agency SANA, reported Thursday night that Syrian air defenses had repelled “hostiles targets” in the Al-Kiswah region south of Damascus and that the operation was still ongoing. Other sources claimed that the Israeli Air Force had attacked pro-Iranian militia concentrations in the same region. Some said there were Hizballah units present there. DEBKAfile: If those reports are confirmed, then this will be the third Israel attack by air or missile on targets in Syria since suspending its air strikes after a Russian spy plane was shot down on Sept. 17. Before that, Al Kiswah took a number of Israeli air strikes, the last occurring on May 10 against a shipment of Iranian Fatteh-313 missiles landing in Syria. Our military sources add that Al Kiswah is the location of Iran’s South Syria Command, which is headed by Maj. Gen. Hossein Hamadani.

    “An unconfirmed report from Ria Novosti said that an Israeli Air Force jet and four Israeli missiles were taken down.”

    Maybe they were testing the new S300’s and could not get out in time, though i would have expected that they would have used a stealth unless of cause the Americans are scared that one could be shot down.

      Syrians shot down a flock of seagulls. Not as bad as shooting down a Russian plane as they did last time.

      Good work guys! LOL!

      Ho The S-300s aren’t operational yet, seems Russia just gave them upgraded S-200 missiles for now, until the Syrian units are fully trained on the new systems.
