イスラエル 戦闘機を撃墜されて動揺

イスラエルは何度もシリア領に侵入しては爆撃を加え、すぐに逃げ去っていましたが、今回は帰路にあったF-16戦闘機1機がロシアがシリアに供与したS-200で撃墜されてしまいました。

戦闘機が発射したロケット弾も相当数が撃ち落とされたとのことです。

イスラエルは攻撃は終わったと表明、一時ベン・ガーオン空港を閉鎖、そしてワシントンとモスクワに状況の管理のための介入を求めました。イスラエルは、シリアからの更なる攻撃を恐れています。

先に攻撃したのはイスラエルです。なんとも虫の良い。

プーチンとネタニヤフが電話会談。ネタニヤフはプーチンにシリア支援を止めさせたいのですが、プーチンはネタニヤフにさらなる敵対拡大にならないようにすべきと述べています。

1960年代に作られたというS200の性能が実証されました。S400の引き合いが急増しているそうです。米国が欲しがれば売ってもいいよとメーカーの関係者が述べています。相当な自信であり、それだけの性能は持っているということなのでしょう。

イスラエルは、ISISなどのテロリストを全面的に支援してきました。それが敗退を続けイスラエルはテロリスト支援の責任を問われることは分かっています。この撃墜事件は、居丈高で無法なイスラエルの近隣国への侵略・攻撃政策に大きな影響を与えるでしょう。

次は、元アルカエダのリーダーがイスラエルのシリア空爆を歓迎するツイートを発しているとの記事です。テロリストとイスラエルの関係が次々に露呈しています。

Former Qaeda leader in Syria ‘welcomes’ Israeli airstrikes

Saleh Al-Hamwi tweets rare public support for Jerusalem, but contends Iran succeeded in creating deterrence over Syrian skies

In a rare public expression of support for Israel by a radical Islamist figure in Syria, a former leader in al-Qaeda’s Syrian militia on Saturday welcomed Israeli airstrikes against Syrian and Iranian targets in the country after an Iranian drone infiltrated Israeli airspace, and called on the Jewish state to quickly “uproot” Iran from its northern neighbor.

“We welcome any Israeli aerial or naval bombardment against the [Syrian] regime and Iran in Syria. We urge them to do more. And we say to Israel: Your silence over Iran’s intervention in Syria will turn against you. It’s inevitable. Act with haste to uproot them,” Saleh Al-Hamwi wrote on Twitter.

Hamwi was a founder of the Nusra Front in 2012. In July 2015, the jihadist group said it dismissed him for not falling in line with the group’s internal politics.

He is now reportedly affiliated with the hardline Islamist group Ahrar il-Sham.

On Saturday, tensions flared on the Israeli-Syrian border, after the IDF intercepted an Iranian drone that entered Israeli airspace from Jordan and an Israeli F-16 was apparently hit while flying over Syria during a retaliatory raid. The Israeli plane managed to return to Israel, where its two pilots ejected. One of the airmen was severely injured, while the second was lightly wounded.

In response, the Israeli Air Force quickly conducted a series of reprisal strikes in Syria.

Hamwi contended that Iran had intentionally sent the drone into Israeli airspace in order to draw Israeli planes into the range of anti-aircraft weaponry stationed at the base where the UAV had taken off from.

“[Iran] sent a drone and penetrated Israeli airspace with the prior knowledge that Israel would respond and bomb the launch site of the UAV,” he tweeted.

Hezbollah: Downed Israeli Jet Marks New Strategic Phase
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement strongly condemned the Israeli regime’s continued acts of aggression against Syria’s military and civilian structures, saying the downing of an Israeli F-16 jet by the Syrian air defense systems marks the “start of a new strategic phase” which would limit Israeli violations of the Syrian airspace.

Hezbollah, in a statement released on Saturday evening, praised “the vigilance of the Syrian army and its valiant response to shoot down the hostile Israeli aircraft”, presstv reported.

“Today's developments mean the old equations have categorically ended,” the statement noted, adding that the Lebanese resistance movement firmly and strongly supported the Syrian people in defending their land, sovereignty and legitimate rights.

Earlier on Saturday, Syria’s state television, citing an unnamed Syrian military official, reported that air defense systems had struck at least one intruding Israeli F-16 fighter aircraft.

The official added that the aircraft had targeted a Syrian army base in the central region of the country, and that more than one Israeli warplane had been shot down.

A pro-government military alliance in Syria said in a statement that Israel would see a severe and serious response to its "terrorism" from now on.

Russian President Calls on Israeli Authorities to Avoid Escalation Following Aggression on Syria
TEHRAN (FNA)- Russian President Vladimir Putin called on the Israeli authorities to avoid escalating the situation in the region following their recent attack on Syrian territory.

The Kremlin said in a statement on Saturday evening that Putin called on the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a phone call to avoid any step that could result in a new cycle of confrontation in the region, SANA reported.

“They discussed the situation around the actions of the Israeli air force, which carried our missile strikes on targets in Syria,” Interfax quoted the Kremlin as saying.

"The Russian side called for any steps, which might trigger a new spiral of dangerous confrontations for all in the region, to be avoided," the Kremlin press service added.

On Saturday, the Syrian military downed an intruding Israeli fighter jet returning from a bombing raid on an army base in central Syria. The Israeli military confirmed that one F-16 had gone down in Northern Israel, and that its two pilots had ejected and had been located and transferred to hospital. It later announced that one of the pilots was in serious condition.

The Israeli military claimed that it had attacked positions inside the Syrian territory after it intercepted a drone launched from Syria on Saturday. A pro-Syrian military alliance said later in the day that the Israeli claim about a drone intrusion was bogus, noting that Israel had targeted a drone base in Syria whose unmanned aircraft were used against the Daesh (ISIS or ISIL) terrorist group.

Over the past years, Israel has frequently attacked targets in Syria, often claiming that it hit positions or convoys belonging to Iran. This is while Iran has no military presence in Syrian territory, only offering advisory military assistance to the Syrian government fighting an all-out foreign-sponsored militancy.

Israel ‘dealt heavy blow’ to Iran & Syria – Netanyahu
Israeli airstrikes against Iranian and Syrian targets have dealt a “serious blow” to Tehran and Damascus, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said. Israel will continue to “strike back,” he added.

“Yesterday we dealt a serious blow to the armies of Iran and Syria,” the prime minister said, referring to the airstrikes conducted by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) against targets on Syrian territory on Saturday. “We will continue to strike back at any attempt to harm us,” he told ministers at his weekly cabinet meeting, as cited by Israeli media.

“We made it unequivocally clear to everyone that our rules of engagement have not changed in any way,” Netanyahu said. “This has been our policy and will remain our policy,” he added, apparently indicating that Tel Aviv does not intend to change its stance on Syria.

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin also praised the airstrikes, saying they proved “we are capable of dealing with Iran.” He also pointed out that Israel is ready to respond to any kind of threat and would not hesitate to do so. “Everyone needs to understand that Israel will not stand idly when someone tries to disrupt our state and our citizens’ daily lives,” the president said, as cited by the Times of Israel.

In the meantime, the head of the IDF Northern Command, Major General Yoel Strick, said the Israeli military would not allow Iran to secure a foothold in Syria. “Iran wants to establish a forward operating base in Syria whose goal is attacking Israel. We will not allow it. We will not allow Israeli citizens to be threatened. We will not allow Iran to threaten the stability of the entire region,” the general said.

Damascus and Tehran, however, dismissed Israeli claims about the scale of the damage inflicted on their forces. The two states said the attacks were repelled and that Israeli air superiority was challenged, thus shifting the balance of power in the region.

Following the Israeli attacks on Saturday, Syrian government forces said their air defense units successfully confronted and “thwarted” Israel’s “aggression” in the Syrian central regions and the area near Damascus, as reported by the Syrian SANA news agency. On Sunday, the Syrian al-Watan newspaper said the Syrian air defense forces effectively “destroyed the myth of Israeli air superiority in the region,” thus dealing a “blow” to Tel Aviv and creating a deterrent to further actions.

Tehran also rejected Israel’s statements. “The claim [made] by the Zionists [that they had carried out sorties] to damage Iranian bases in Syria is a lie,” Ali Shamkhani, secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, told Iranian media on Sunday.

“The Syrian nation proved this time that it will respond to any act of aggression, as the era of hit and run is over,” he added. Israel, Iran and Syria engaged in a war of words following a series of incidents on Saturday that have led to a rapid escalation of tensions in the region.

On Saturday, Israel first reported that the IDF had intercepted an Iranian unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) over its territory. The Israeli forces then launched a series of airstrikes against Iranian and Syrian government forces’ positions on Syrian territory. The move prompted heavy anti-aircraft fire by the Syrian Army. One Israeli F-16 crashed during the operation.

Israel Deploys Anti-Missile System on Syria Border
TEHRAN (FNA)- An agitated Israeli military has reportedly deployed anti-missile systems to the Syrian border, a day after it lost an advanced F-16 warplane in Syria's first serious air defense operation to confront Israeli violations of its airspace.

The Jerusalem Post on Sunday cited witnesses as saying that they had seen convoys of "missile defense batteries" North-bound near the city of Baka al-Gharbiya. It said others had posted photos of "trucks carrying the batteries on central highways in Northern Israel". The report added that the Israeli army had "refused to comment".

Early on Saturday morning, reportedly eight Israeli warplanes were deployed to target positions inside Syria. The Syrian military, which has previously absorbed occasional Israeli strikes, activated its air defense systems and shot down at least one Israeli F-16.

Israel claimed that it had earlier intercepted an "Iranian" drone, and that the warplanes had been dispatched to hit the site where the drone had been launched from, only to face Syrian anti-aircraft fire. Tehran rejected the claim about an Iranian drone as "too ludicrous to warrant a response". And the Syrian military said it had responded to Israeli "aggression" and had hit more than one aircraft.

More than 24 hours after the incident, however, Israeli accounts of the developments were varied and confused. One Israeli report quoted the pilots of the downed F-16 − who parachuted out of the warplane − as saying that they realized they had been "hit" only after hearing an explosion.

"[We heard] an explosion and realized we were hit," Israeli Channel 2 cited them as saying.

Another said the pilots ejected "when they recognized that one of the missiles had locked onto their jet."

Some Israeli reports claimed that a direct hit had not occurred and that shrapnel from an exploding missile had pierced through the warplane.

The Israeli military has long boasted of superior aerial power. Before Saturday's crash, the Tel Aviv regime had not lost a warplane in 35 years − since the first Israeli war on Lebanon, in 1982.

The downing by Syria of the Israeli jet worked to deflate that narrative, particularly since it was only the first time Syria was actively confronting intruding Israeli aircraft.

Various Israeli news articles and analyses reflected the sentiment that the self-proclaimed Israeli "invincibility" had been shattered. Reports spoke of "cracks" in Israeli "arrogance", and "a blow to the pride" of the Israeli regime.

A flood of Israeli trash talk against Iran also followed. One Israeli minister, Yisrael Katz, took to a telling podium to speak, namely Saudi Arabia-linked outlet Elaph.

“The Syrian army will find itself under fire if it continues to cooperate and allow Iran to position itself on Syrian soil,” Katz said, repeating a paranoiac Israeli mantra about Iranian activity in Syria.

Iran has said it has no military presence in Syria and is only offering Damascus advisory military help.

Observers say that the downing of the Israeli jet sent Tel Aviv the message that Syria and other countries whose airspace is violated by Israel are now ready to stop those violations.

On Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu suggested that the Israeli attacks against positions in Syria would continue.

He said the regime had conducted strikes after the downing of the F-16, which he said showed " that our modus operandi has not changed one bit."
