Drone footage filmed in the Tashkent region in Northern Cyprus on Monday shows fires caused by an explosion after the territory was hit overnight by what appeared to be a Russian-made S-200 missile.

Turkish Cypriot Foreign Minister Kudret Ozersay told local media that “the missile was a stray Russian-made S-200 that was fired in response to Israeli missile attacks.”

Ozercay said it may have been launched by a Syrian anti-aircraft system. Turkish Cypriot officials suggested the missile missed its target and fell in Northern Cyprus, nearly 193 kilometres (119 miles) west of Syrian territory.

Syrian state news agency SANA reported that four civilians were killed and 21 injured in Israeli air strikes near Damascus early on Monday.

The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) have not issued a statement regarding the reported attacks in Syria.

The problem is that a missile does not burn and makes burns like shown on the picture, but a plane does, am I wrong ?

That thing belong to Israel, just they felt too shameful to admit it after it got hit by Syria again like the previous two fighter jets that once claimed by Syria army. but denied by IDF.

You dont know, how Iran hit US spy drone recently that also equipped with stealth system?
And even the 2nd drone launched by US Navy detected by Iran. Stealth my a*s.

Cos Iran were customer of NK military weapon based on cargo confiscated by Thailand recently that full with weapon made by NK and headed to Iran. Its not something peculiar, why Iran radar can detect even F35, if one dare to enter their airspace.

NK also never said a word about who’s fighter jets caught entering their airspace but shoot missile to chase them away. That is why, US dont dare to attack North Korea even they declared war against US..

Same understanding on how Iran missile hit US drone protected by stealth system recently. Just Iran send out warning after detected US spies drone again entering their airspace since they dont have any intention to engage war with US.

Inshort Iran and NK radar can breach stealth system, just they never told you or brag about it.

Iran radar can see 2 US spies drone that protected by stealth system, mean what?
Same understanding, when US declared emergency, just because NK have parade celebrating grandfather birthday. The reason because US dont have anything spying inside NK airspace and satellite were something not suitable for spying since that thing orbit or need time before it bypass airspace of North Korea.

Stealth System already something useless in military after NK created a radar that could see thru it. If not, what made you presume, Trump could get so friendly with NK leader?

Cos anyone can tell, who fly a missile over Japan twice and how NK replied media upon knowing US declared emergency because NK want to attack US even they just celebrating grandfather birthday.

“You that known as American better dont behave like kid”
This two incident that clearly showing NK slapping US in front of other but somehow Trump visit NK but somehow you dont think, something is fishy?

You dont know, Russia also created a radar that could see thru stealth system?
Then go google “stealth system” and read news related to this B.S. Cos Russia aware what they doing in Syria and this radar should not be hidden, if they could test it.
