BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:20 A.M.) – Earlier tonight, the Syrian military spotted an alleged Israeli drone above the western countryside of Damascus, prompting their air defenses to activate and target the unmanned aerial vehicle.

According to a military source, the drone was flying over the Deir Al-Asha’ir area of western Damascus before it was finally spotted and downed by their air defenses

The Syrian military said their radars tracked the drone and believe it was an Israeli UAV that was conducting a reconnaissance mission above the western countryside of Damascus.

No further details were released.

The Syrian air defense targeted and downed a similar drone last week, but its debris was not found.

Mientras el ejercito combate a los mercenarios de Erdogan en el norte, Netanyahu aprovecha atacar al pueblo Sirio. Como dicen: “!Terroristas unidos jamas serán vencidos”.

Actually, if Bibi attacked the Syrian people in order to exterminate’em, it wouldn’t take more than a few minutes since they’re a nuclear power. Considering the losses of forces along 7 years conflict, SAA wouldn’t cope more than 48-72 hours if you consider the freaking game changing equipment IDF acquired in the 10 last years. In fact, since Iran leads a proxy war on Israel through Hezbo and Hamas/PIJ, Israelis only go after IRGC and Hezb, which is absolutely legal since using proxies to wage war on a country is a de facto declaration of war by the proxies’ holders.… Read more »

B.S. Nobody will attack a neighbour with nukes in a war of extermination. The fallout will effect all his territory and population also. No matter whether Zionists can do something in 48-72 hours – they will not do it when it costs them too much. No You cannot legally go across the border unless You are attacked. Except French and English that even send forces into the Rhine area before WW II which was a demilitarized zone then. Nobody ever read the Hague Convention – unless it suits his cause. You French even name roads and tanks after people who… Read more »

Stern : fallouts only happen if you do ground level blasts and these are even far reduced with neutron-bombs. Israeli started the mass production of N-Bombs AKA “the nice French Bomb” in 1984. These are nice since you can re-use most of the real estate. Actually, Israelis are NOT into making a war of extermination. A war of extermination is what all the anti-Semitics we read the posts here want and had they the means to do this, they would! It’s the big difference with the Zionists : would Zionist wanted it, they could do it! “You French even name… Read more »

There is no A bomb without radioactive fallout. Not even Your French nice bombs can work without radioactives. They use just less. And You were talking about a war of extermination. The Frenchmen of the Milice and SS think Leclerc was the traitor. The milice and the French SS soldiers fought against the communist mercenaries of the Island Monkeys. They defended the continental Europe and its values. The EU so to speak – against maritime economical imperialism. Tongue out. The Island Monkey cabal of the five eyes employed communists then and now it is using Jihadi since communists have become… Read more »

Maybe should you inform yourself better about IDF, about their equipment and even about the fact that, except Arabs who only enlist voluntary, all Israelis are mandatory drafted in the Army, including women and for a while… BTW, the War of Attrition lasted from 1967 to 1970 and they were facing Egypt, Jordan, Syria and PLO. In fact, Arabs and other irrational anti-Semitic racists are really seen like Wil E Coyote when it comes to Israel or Jews : they’ve really tried anything possible and all actions ended in epic failures… All of you are really ridiculous : if you… Read more »

Funny how you describe resistance to a criminal entity as “irrational anti-Semitic racism” when you yourself blame Iran for every evil in the world and lets not even start talking about your racial hatred for the Palestinian people. The only one spreading propaganda are your Zionist bandits.

Syria and the Arabs have no chance in a prolonged war. War is a matter of innovation, funds and economy. Syria has no modern arms industry. Israeli soldiers are as brave as any other Aryans and Arabs.

It is interesting that if Israel detect a dron coming from Syria, Israel respond by bombing Syria. However, If Syria detects a dron coming from Israel. Syria is just happy knowing that the dron was stopped …..WOW !! Can you see what I want to point out ?

NATO with all its tech needed 5 days to find a debris of a missile that was launching by mistake by a eurofihhter jet…imagine Syria tech to find a drone debris in a radio of dozens of km in the midel of a desert..

Depends what you have around : Estonia has nothing like the giant Dimona X-band radar. It is said that, at its lowest threshold, it even can “see” objects the size of a bee (!). The two antennas are 400m+ high. I wouldn’t be surprised if such capabilities were true : X-band radars are extremely accurate and there is no other one with such high antennas. The complex belongs to the Yanks but IDF is fully networked. Now just consider how the Iron Dome system calculates from where the rocket or the shell was launched with just a few metres accuracy… Read more »

It has to land on Your territory and You have to be the first on the site. And also whether the UFO was tracked properly.
