Russia and Syria join forces to repel Israeli air strikes. Iron Dome downs Syrian missiles over Golan


Israel, Syria and Russia scaled up their contest over Syria. On Sunday, Jan. 20. Israel made a point of striking Damascus airport in the face of a Russian warning, while Syria launched a missile against Israeli Golan and Moscow issued bulletins on the state of play.
This was Israel’s first air strike against a Syrian target since Lt. Gen. Aviv Kochavi’s took charge of the IDF last week as new Chief of Staff. It was also rare in that Israeli warplanes operated in daylight. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, four Israel Air Force F-16 fighters flew in from the Mediterranean to attack Damascus international airport. Syrian air defense weapons, which the Russian DoD confirmed this time, were Pantsirs and Buks, were launched against the Israeli jets and the missiles they dropped, claiming to have intercepted 7 missiles. These bulletins flowed throughout the incident from Russian spokesman to local correspondents.

Only last week, an Arab publication warned Israel that no more air strikes must take place against Damascus international airport which was being made ready for commercial traffic.

Just one hour after the Israeli air strike, two Syrian missiles were launched against the northern Golan and Mt. Hermon. The IDF spokesman reported they were intercepted by an Israeli Iron Dome air defense battery. Several thousand skiers on the Mt. Hermon ski slopes just north of the Golan saw the flying projectiles. To avoid panic, the spokesman said there was no need for them to leave the slopes.

However, DEBKAfile’s military sources report that, on Dec. 26, both Russia and Syria warned that for further Israeli air strikes, they would shoot anti-air missiles into Israeli air space. This was taken as a threat to fire SA-5 anti-air missiles from the Damascus region. The threat came the day after one of those missiles caused major alarm in the cities of central Israel.

    So Israel will move in and fight against Syria?
    Legally it could as there is no peace treaty just
    a silence of weapons.
    But people near the Syrian border would be
    in state of fear as there is no warning time,
    and just a walk from the bus stop to a Yeshiva could
    be deadly.
    So schools may become closed in the south eastern golan.

        What specifically are you referring to? I’m just curious about what specifically in Mathew 24? Yeshua doesn’t lie. I see Isaiah 17 being very relevant to this situation that has been going in since the Syrian civil war began, and it has only become more likely as the weeks and months go by. I am watching for what is described in Isaiah 17 to possibly happen any time. Then we will know almost exactly where we are moving forward, it could go right into Ezekiel 38-39.

      Why, so they can bombard the Galilee again. It’s been annexed and is now part of Greater Israel.

      The Golan was bequeathed ….. in other words GIVEN to Syria following WW1. It was not Syrian land. But the French and Britain did give it to Syria, And what did Syria do with the Golan ? They shot rockets at Israel from the Golan. In 1967 Israel took the Golan away in a war. Then annexed it to Israel. The story ends there. Syria will only get the Golan back if it wins a war with Israel. Pointe finale.

    Hezbollah presence in Syria is not legitimate, bombing is Ok.
    In fact, the very Hezbollah existence is not legitimate, bombing is required.

      Disagree about Hezbolla presence in Syria.They are there because the Syrian government invited them.However, if these invitees are going to cause problems with the neighbors,and in particular Israel, then they can expect Israel to what they will to deal with those problematic guests in Syria.With the presence of Hezbolla and Iran in Syria, Syria cannot expect peace.The Russian presence ought to be enough,but it appears Russia does not want body bags returning to Moscow.

        Not so much Moscow doesnt want body bags returning home. More like Russia is pragmatic in its approach, it understands the fine balance of diplomacy between ALL players in the field.

    I’m sure the Jewish brains in Israel have a way to destroy targets in Syria no matter what the Russians do. Israel can saturate the target with missiles and overwhelm the air defense system. They can’t stop Israel. Israel will strike one way or another.

        What god are you talking about exactly? Are you a zionist? If you are a christian you should review your view. The god of Israel is no longer the God of the bible. This Israel has been rejected till the end. The devill is their god and they will be destroyed in the last day. At least, that’s what the bible says.

          You need to read the Bible again, the God of Abraham , Isaac , and Jacob IS the God of Israel. God has not turned his back on Israel, he promised to defend Israel. Thats in the word of God.

    The Russian just might see that with falling oil prices international and things heating up in Syria that they cannot afford to get involved in a long term conflict with Israel and probably others including the US. This is going to get real interesting in the next few months…

        Yes, you don’t need to rely on ‘prophecies” to understand that. They will over-play their hand and force Israel to use WMD’s. This is where its going and Israel’s enemies (Russia now firmly one of them) seem to want that to happen.

    They can stop bombing as soon as that goal is achieved.

      The world is ruled by Christian Spirits and as soon as the fake Israelites(read Jews) overplay their hand, the real Christian believers will be taken off this world and the Jews will be allowed to destroy this world. But that will be the end of their power on earth for ever as they will be captured into the inside of the earth in new creations and they then will HAVE TO SERVE AGAINST THEIR WILL FOR EONS. And the Christians will inherit a new World full of wonders without the influence of the Jew.

    This is beginning of the reign of Jesus over the Jews. Both Muslims and Christians love Jesus and Mohammad. Only the Jews hate both. Jesus is very sad for his lost and is returning to bring his sheep to the flock. The shepherd king returns to save the Jews like Moses in the wilderness. Amos 6:3 John 4:20

    It’s real simple. Russia cannot tell Israel that they can’t protect themselves and must get slaughtered because Putin said so. F Russia. Israel has 500 nukes and ICBM’s. Russia can kiss everyone of their major cities goodbye if they start a war with Israel. Now, Israel wouldn’t survive either, but that’s better than being starved to death in a prison camp.
