Russia and Syria threaten to fire SA-5 missiles into central Israel if IAF air strikes continue

A new Russian threat was received in Israel on Wednesday, Dec. 26: Any more air strikes and Syria’s SA-5 air defense missiles will be fired deep into Israel – like the one that shook several towns on Tuesday night in the middle of an IAF attack on Iranian sites in Syria. Israel’s air defense system missed the intruding missile; it exploded harmlessly in an unpopulated part of Mt. Carmel. By issuing this threat, Moscow confirmed that the Syrian missile was aimed deliberately at the Israeli heartland, and was not a stray from the attacks on Israeli aircraft, as some Israeli officials have claimed.

People living in the towns of Hadera, Caesarea, Or Akiva, Zichon Yacov and Binyamina reported that their houses shook under the blast and for many hours the air reeked of gunpowder. A quarter of a million Israeli civilians were affected. That would be a mild foretaste of what is to come if the Russians carry out their threat of payback for any more Israeli air strikes over Syria. And that was a single SA-5 missile. The impact of five or 10 fired by a Syrian battery does not bear thinking of.

The SA-5 (Russian coded S-200) is elderly but it has a very long range, medium-to-high altitude surface-to-air capacity, can function in all weathers and can be used to hit ground targets as well as aircraft and missiles. DEBKAfile’s military sources note that the Russians indicated that Syria would not launch a surface missile offensive against Israel but would employ a tit-for-tat strategy, countering Israeli air strikes over Syrian air space with missile attacks over Israeli air space. There was no indication of whether Israeli air attacks mounted from Lebanese skies were included in the threat.
This warning from Moscow and Damascus prompted an Israeli official to confirm for the first time early Thursday, Dec, 27, that the IAF had struck several Iranian targets in three main locations – primarily storage and logistics facilities used by Iran to ship weapons to Hezbollah – and also destroyed a Syrian anti-aircraft battery that fired at the Israeli jets. The official did not elaborate, but the battery was the one that had fired the SA-5 into central Israel This disclosure embodied Israel’s counter-threat.
Our military sources also reveal that the three targets attacked in Syria were the command center of the Syrian army’s 10th Division at Qatana, its Dimat base and the 4th Division’s compound in Saboura, which houses Iranian Revolutionary Guards weapons and ammunition stores laid in for arming the five militias Iran is building in Syria for a long-term presence.

    Yes Israel will attack again, and Russia will strike back and Israel will strike harder and Russia will get pissed and strike even harder. The world will try to calm down the situation but the damage will be irreversible. At this point a true test will be there for Trump and his loyalty. Will he stay loyal to the grand puppeteer Putin or will he show loyalty to America’s step child – Israel

        It’s funny how the exact same countries Syria, Russia, Iran, & Turkey are the exact same countries as Ezekiel’s (chapter 38-39) end time war prophecy. Spoiler: Israel win and the prophecy is that they (Israel) live off their enemies weapons for 7yrs. Only a Nuclear warhead can Offer a 7yr energy to Israel.

      Old SA-5 designed in the 1960s and Iron Dome,Arrow , Patriot missiles couldn’t intercept. Russia has over 100 missile variants which would take Israel and America, over 50 years to produce half the capability. On wednesday Putin asked the military to fire the last test over the wonder weapon Avangarde hypersonic missile with over MACH 20 speed something America would ever dream of. For a 5th grade exercise of Arithmetic can you calculate how many meters per sec , this monstrous missile can travel, I mean the speed.
      This is problem for a 5th grader.I want the answer now.

          I am former military and I still associate with members of the US Military and a few former associates of the IDF.Russia is several years ahead of the US in laser and hypersonic missile development (they already have two types deployed. There is something else about their aircraft that allows them to sometimes sneak up on you, do not know what it is, could be jamming or they actually have developed plasma capabilities. Russia does not want a war. they want to have no sanctions on them and the US and Brits leave them alone. Russia will just do things to keep Israel from attacking until Turkey is ready. From my understanding Israel would have a difficult time getting a plane off of the ground being that close to Damascus if the Russians didn’t want them to

        The Russian hyper-sonic is nothing or are you totally stupid? New tests reveal a mach 5 speed. We had a rocket (bomber capable) that could top that in the 1970s. Now Putin is facing several US programs, several high altitude lifters along with new capabilities to destroy hypersonics. I commend the US for sealing this stuff from the Chinese and Russians along with Mayhem and flight and ablation control a function of surface charge manipulation. Putin has a ring side seat in watching his technological edge shaken. Do you know that Israel has a stealthy drone capable of launching a supersonic missile. The US and Israel along with other like Norway have created unjammable sensors. Again, the SR-72 will exceed mach 5 carrying a much faster missile in its stealthy payload bays, but accelerate plasma round and hypersonics won’t be able to avoid the flak. Putin has created an arms race years ago by advancing our adversaries missile capabilities while forbidding the West to build defensive systems. He will lose if he thinks he can let Iran and Hizb’Allah set up shop in Syria.

          Maxtrue…………..Agree, Current systems can defend against these weapons, quite adequately, although newer systems are already in DARPA Development. Hypersonic Weapons offer several benefits which may enhance their effectiveness, but they produce many liabilities as well, which more than offset their benefits, especially against tactically advanced foes like the US Navy.

          The biggest weakness is the Massive Guidance Sensor Degradation. At Hyper-sonic speeds, the leading edges of the vehicle become super-heated and produce plasma ionized gases. Much like signal blackout during re-entry, they rely on targeting data via trailing edge antennae from distant sensors satellite, aircraft, and the farther away those sensors are, the easier they are to blind and the less accurate. The kill-chain requires “Eyes-On” real-time guidance from multiple distant lines. This offers more chances to defeat the chain and Putin knows it.

          Hypersonics are awful poor terminal guidance with limited maneuverability at hitting moving targets. By virtue of their speed, small deviations in their flight profile can change their terminal path by a kilometer or more. They simply will not be able to course correct at all during the last few seconds of flight. Small gusts of wind and slight variations in air pressure and temperature will affect the flight path by a hundred meters or more. These are not maneuverable vehicles is not accurate whatever maneuvers they may do will be entirely programmatic, not active or autonomous.

          Bottom line, the speed is also a massive weakness which offers new methods of defeating the weapon that would never work along poor kinetic stability and thermal vulnerability. They are also easy to track by virtue of their Super-Heated titanium non-stealth Air frame and massive supersonic pressure wave, these weapons will light up the Infrared and Doppler easily. Yes, the warning time is shorter, but the signature will be unmistakable and a weather radar with the right software would see this thing coming.

          Besides, Politicians have no stomach for anything but self-preservation, especially Russia Leadership
          The Worldwide Politicians know that the Americans value individual life above everything else and have prepared to not even tolerate the loss of even one single city. The important ones know too that America already have a fully synchronized system of Endo-Atmospheric Anti-Ballistic Missiles, guided by a highly accurate radar. The Americans can launch a first strike, and take out any Nations Land-Based Missiles even before they can be fueled and before they get 500 feet in the air. That’s why Russia has Submarines and Bombers and China is developing them as well. But America’s Radar array that guides and detonates Nukes in the Ionosphere is their electromagnetic pulse weapon, taking down everything any surviving submarines and aircraft can get up. It has been tested and it’s fully operational. Not a single American city would be hit.

          If there’s no consequences for attacking us, what’s their incentive for peace? There is none! This is just another way for Russia to get Iran and other Nations to buy up this Ineffective Hyper-sonic Weapon to recapture the money they spent developing it, and now know it won’t work anyway. The Russians are good at copying and developing American Technology but always 3 to 4 steps behind and with only an $50-80 Billion Defense Budgets compared to America’s 750 Billion require other Nations to buy up what they have knowing it won’t work.

      Israel has its own freedom of incalculable importance to strengthened its position and inspired all Israeli’s with self-reliance. This dates back to he victories over Sihon once Israel took possession and abandoned its previous nomadic life. Israelite’s are now to move freely being no longer incommoded by the narrow belt of any desert nor by any suspicions of unfriendly nations, tribes or people. Israel will remain vigilant and self-reliant and Russia is far away and out of pace and place to dictate anything.

        Israel has always defended itself with only Israeli’s never asked for American Troops. They will share Military Weapon purchases but Israel has come a long way on their own Arms for Defense and Cybersecurity Defense and Offense. President Carter help create the Iranian Crisis in 1979 and knows he made many mistakes and President Obama did the same and you do not have to worry about President Trump on the Middle East he is still far smarter than Carter or Obama were and Obama did not serve in the Military either. I respect all 3 Presidents that all were beset by many MidEast Challenges and tried different approaches. But Carter policies failed and so did Obama even with the best of intentions, Trump cannot do no worst, in my view and I did not vote for him, but he POTUS now.

    If this news is true then Israel should strike all SA 5 batteries. Israel should also demand in the UN the withdrawal of Russia from Syria because Syria is not a Russian territory but a country who is at war with Israel. If the Russian refuse which is expected Israel should inform those future airstrikes which will kill Russians are the result of Russian interference in the region and Russian aggression.

    I daresay the Russians are not being circumspect. Iran’s threat to Israel is existential and there’s no relenting in their effort to achieve their goal as evidenced by securing bases close to Israel. The only option for Israel is to be on the offensive. History provides a lot of lessons that anytime an adversary shows determination in carrying out an intention in deed or words any response thereto must be definite and decisive. Israel like all nations has right to self defense and considering her tininess, policy of deterrent is and has always been the best option. I think there’s universal awareness that if you don’t act in response to threats you end up accepting peace terms from a weaker position. Thank God for Churchill, Britain might have been something else by now after the WWII. After the Pearl harbor bombing, USA never cowered, they went on to prove to the whole world no one cannot mess up their sovereignty. Russia, a mighty nation, would do better to bring peace to the region rather than fermenting conflict and chaos. My advice to Israel is they should do all that they can to defend their tiny nation. They owe it a divine duty to posterity as their forefathers did for them to defend what God gave them. My sympathy and prayer support coupled with other well-wishers’ are theirs 24/7. NO MORE HOLOCAUST!!! LONG LIVE ISRAEL AND ALL HER NEIGHBORS WHO WANT TO LIVE IN PEACE WITH HER. AMEN

    The Russian people will turn against Putin if he supports Muslims in a war against Israel. It would be his end, and he knows it. Secondly, Israel will wreck such damage to the Russian air force, the Russian fleet in the Mediterranean and Black Seas that the Russian people would be furious with Putin. The use of Russian nuclear weapons against Israel is not even on the table to be considered. If Russia wants to get in the way of Israel defending itself, which it must do, then so be it.

    Present Russian military and political leadership of course are not paragons of intellect, but I strongly doubt that Russians had proposed such thing as shooting surface to air missile Buk-2 into central Israel. The missile has a range 200 km, fragmentation warhead with proximity fuse,and semi-active radar seeker, i.e. it is absolutely useless against any ground targets, but if civilian aircraft or even a military one in the Israel airspace will be hit it is not only casus belli it is death warrant for Syrian air-defence system and all russian “instructors’ who man it, and even UN, not to say NATO will have no choice but impose crippling sanctions on Russia, especially if plane would be civilian, and if it would belong to one of western air lines. However maybe I think too well about Russians in las 25 years they are becoming dumber and dumber and resemble Haute Volta with missiles more than in 1962 when Lord Chalfont coined the phrase.

      But YES it was for the benefit of America, Israel and Saudi so ignoring all the pain and suffering, death and destruction it could be considered good if one is a heartless psychopath…

    Israel sadly at this time is a divided state with a large percentage of the population that by any measure are religious extremists who have implemented an apartheid system and then don’t want to understand why there are problems.

    If cant believe this to be true have a look at the below:
    https://www.haaretz.com/misc/writers/WRITER-1.4968119

    They cling to old stories that we created from even older stories of older cultures and are trying to bring them in fruition.

    This is a very dangerous practice and one that has back fired in the past. But religious belief is what it is… The last thing the Israeli leadership want is peace or religious tolerance. Peace would mean a loss of billions from the diaspora, from the evangelical Christians and from the American Government.

    Religion has always been big business and Israel’s travails are good business with those poor deluded souls who believe giving money to Israel is going to give them extra money / rewards in heaven or that this will wash away other wrongs.

    In the dark ages the foolish fought for the Catholic church, why because by fighting for the Church you are fighting for God. The Pope explained to these deluged souls that you will receive absolution for ALL sins and guaranteed entry into heaven.

    You could kill, rape, torture, cheat or do anything else because you have received absolution your sins did not matter. The Muslims follow a slightly different variation where some extra rewards are thrown in.

    We Jews take it one step further, we tell each other that we are special when we died are suffer only only temporarily, and will be freed on account of his son’s prayers. We in our arrogance and foolishness are taught that all non-jews are animals / beasts that only resemble Man.

    So we treat the Palestinians and our neighbors as dogs and try to herd and enforce our will by causing them to suffer. After all if ALL non-jews are animals and Man has been given dominion over the animals what sin can there be in that?

    What nonsense, we will all be treated the same, their is no special treatment for different faiths.

    The universal law is that you reap as you sow.

    Brihadaranyaka Upanishad:
    Now as a man is like this or like that,
    according as he acts and according as he behaves, so will he be;
    a man of good acts will become good, a man of bad acts, bad;
    he becomes pure by pure deeds, bad by bad deeds;
    and whatever deed he does, that he will reap.
    Everyone will reap what they have sown, the scales will be balanced.

    So you should consider to look at the world through this very lens. Israel’s reward, America’s reward, your reward or your suffering are always caused by your actions.
    America, Israel and their current and future state is always based on what they have sown in the past. America is today because of what is did yesterday and by that measure was America better off in the 1960’s before it starting blessing Israel, with political, military and diplomatic cover?

    So where is the blessing that America and the evangelicals are meant to have received? We can all see the how the country has suffered and how the people are now far far worse off.

    The answer of cause is that this always was a trick that was played in the 1800’s to help establish Israel. Its just religious political games like this been used to control almost all religions with one faction trying to get ahead and put in place a better system of control over their followers.

    So remember that when Bibi use every trick he can to stay out of jail and in power with the Christian Right along for the ride all the while hoping that this will lead to the “final battle”. To this end expect military adventures, physiological tricks, calls to your nationalism etc.

    So if you want a different trajectory you need to act differently and act based on this simple law. Christians are taught if i recall correctly that the golden mean is to treat others like you would like to be treated.

    Very wise words indeed.

    Israel is strong and will not disappear anytime soon. So worry not what Syria, Iran or others do and be assured that they will reap their just reward for ALL their actions as will we all.

    Look in the mirror and focus on sorting out your own life and decide which reward you want to receive and leave Gods Will and prophesy to attend to its self.

    Putin is a liar.

    The Russians are on the side of the Israelis.

    Threatening to fire SURFACE-TO-AIR missiles in retaliation? That’s insulting everybody’s intelligence, including the Russians themselves.

    I didn’t know the Russians were this stupid.

    SAMs will do no damage to land targets, as everyone knows.

    The Russians had promised to hit airbases with great force.

    Truly,

    Russia = USA = ISIS

    (Stupid Iranians.)

    The questions become: First, will the SA-5 be successfully intercepted? The last one wasn’t. If it is fired in significantly large numbers, it could cause immense damage to populated areas. Second, how will the Israeli public react to the loss of both soldiers and civilians? Most Israelis want assurances now that won’t be major trouble. Third, the SA-5 battery destroyed by Israel in Syria was just one. Masses of these rockets would be fired from multiple bases. If Israel decides to initiate full-scale attacks on these bases, the Kremlin will probably feel that level of Israeli intervention justifies a much wider Russian involvement.

    It all ends up with Israel (and USA) deciding how much they are willing to risk to contain Iran and perhaps, Russia. The answer is not clear, yet. My guess is that the resistance to Israeli operations over Syria and Lebanon will only increase, and increase Israeli losses, since Israel’s enemies have not been intimidated by Israel’s interventions thus far and seem to be only increasing their operations in those countries.

      To my knowledge, an SA-5 (NPO Almaz S-200 Angara/Vega/Dubna for Russian reference, and NATO reporting name SA-5 Gammon) is an surface-to-air missile, with ground based fire control radar, and no GPS programmable trajectory.

      The grounds of Israel are not radar visible, Golan Heights blocking the radar accessible horizon. And the Israel cities are not flying high above ground. It follows that the idea to harm populated areas with these presents the same value as attacking the Merkava tanks charging towards you with water fire-extinguishing jets because sooner of later they will rust up the turrets and the crew will have a hard time to get out and take a piss after the fight.

    very interesting developments. but… putin only cares about russian interests, such as:

    – retaining russia’s new mediterranean port.
    – control of syria, as a chokepoint for oil/gas going to europe.
    – generating revenue by selling arms.

    threats of s-200 rockets landing on israel are an open invitation to israel to eliminate the threat. he wouldn’t open that door if he didn’t want the consequences. because the obsolete s-200 junque will need replacements. russian-made replacements.

    again, lambasting israel for this latest raid will help overcome israeli objections to renewed russian arms sales to syria. which in turn will strengthen russia’s bargaining position after the civil war.

    but with or without the bluster, israel will have to eliminate the s-300 system sooner or later, as it has the capability to shut down all of israel’s airspace.

    USA’s own mini-projectile space based offensive weapons system, from which there is NO defense, can fire a practically unlimited number of mini-projectiles projectiles with such cutting edge physics dial-up speed — mass times acceleration — that EACH projectile has the explosive max force of 27 Hiroshima bombs with pinpoint accuracy upon any point on Earth, just blast and resultant heat, no radiation.

    For its own survival, far better if Russia allies with USA than Syria and Iran.

    I suppose Israel’s recent testing of the Russians post the previous episode leading to the import of new Russian missiles provided an answer from them. Now we know where we stand.

    The Russians is better backdown before he regret.
    Fighting against Israel is like fighting God;
    Israel has every right to defend himself against any threat.
    What happened in the WWII between US & RUSSIA is not over, Russia should have learned a lesson.
    God bless you Israel.

    If push comes to shove, the Israeli’s will light up those SAM sites and watch them explode into tiny pieces of melted matter. And the Russian’s dare not tangle with Israel’s best friend.

    Syria has to hit back eventually to stop Israeli aggression. It can not go on forever and it will happen soon or later and only then The Zionist regime will stop attacking it’s Syria.

    You guys have to be nuts if you believe that the US government will sacrifice my country and my people for Israel.
    But I see lots of bible references here being used as arguments, so you might just be that – nuts.
    Good luck against the Russians, lol.

    The Russians need to nuke Israel rather fast before losing their tactical advantage. Wonder what happens to them the minute they push the button.
