BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 P.M.) – The presence of Russia’s Su-35 jets allegedly prevented the Israeli Air Force from conducting airstrikes over southern Syria on Monday, the Russian aviation publication Avia.Pro reported.

According to the Avia.Pro report, the Russian Su-35S jets were urgently deployed to southern Syria to intercept an Israeli aircraft and prevent any strikes inside this region.

The aviation publication said the Israeli Air Force was preparing to launch airstrikes over southern Syria in response to an alleged rocket attack that was conducted by the Iranian-backed forces in Damascus.

“According to preliminary data, Russian fighters were able to prevent Israeli planes from striking southern Syria in response to an alleged rocket attack on Israeli territory,” the publication reported.

“It is known that a few hours before the Syrian air defense systems were put on full alert in order to repel Israeli missile attacks, it was obviously the Russian Su-35s that were able to prevent the Israeli aircraft from carrying out the attack,” they said.

Avia.Pro said this is not the first time that the Russian military was able to impede, as a previous incident was reported last month.

On Monday, an Iraqi paramilitary encampment in the Syrian city of Albukamal was attacked by an unknown aircraft.

While some claims state that up to 18 fighters were killed, Hezbollah has denied reports and accused the U.S. and Israel of carrying out the strikes.

Neither the U.S. nor Israel have commented on these accusations.

Avia.pro is doing nothing else than disguised advertising for Sukhoi. It is total BS and this is why : EVERYBODY but sückers know that IDF doesn’t even violates Syrian airspace for the good reason that their Spice250 gliding bomb ranges 130km so, in most of the cases, all they have to do is to drop a few Spice250 and the Harkonens’ get spiced, Atreides-style… If it’s deeper, no problem, there are other stand-off weapons, so, why would they take risks while they drop from areas where they are under the protection of ABMs able to intercept SAMs… We’re no more… Read more »

No Russi is not in the pocket of the Anglo-zionists. If you were in charge we would all be at war.

Indeed, Israel has lost the wars in the Middle East and for reasons of revenge wants to enlarge the war to have it as destroyed is much as is possible. Not reacting or have a very limited reaction to these provocations is the best thing to do.

Russia is in partnership with NATO : never heard about PfP (partnership for peace)? All the states who left the PfP became full NATO members 😉
We’re all a team in Dar-al-Kuffar 😁😁😁😁😁

+++ “I wish Rusia would do and attack the terrorists state every time needed”
=> It’s sure it’d be nice if they teamed with us to get the world rid from Turkish, Qatari, Pakistani and Iranian regimes…
Once the 4 horsemen of the Apocalyterrorism gone, others will think twice before sponsoring extremists.

If true, then that’s great that Russia is taking a more proactive stance against Israeli aggression on Syria.
I, for one, wouldn’t mind seeing a real test of Russian fighter aircraft v. Israeli modified F-15/F-16/F-35 ones. That would really set the cat among the pigeons as regards any country’s jet fighter selection and procurement ….

Don’t make me laugh! Only simple minds (like here on this webpage) believe Russia care about Syria, you stopped one attack (without harming your jewish friends) while you’ll allow other attacks based on interests and who provides better deals.

Putin repeatedly said before that he’s responsible for the security of the “jewish state”.

Nothing to add here. Indeed the Tzar values personal relationship and a weird sense of pseudo-ideology over long-term and more solid geopolitical thinking. He “likes” Bibi = He provides him with many incentives to do whatever he pleases so long as he doesn’t perceive his actions as harmful to his own interests and their narrow scope in Syria’s Tartous + Hmeimim, and that’s about it, and the best being that he expect nothing specific in return. Like some sort of wicked take on a gentlemen’s agreement, except that none of the parties are anything remotely close to gentlemen. Putin will… Read more »

Of course Putin and some Russian oligarchs have ties with Israel…but sometimes Russian military staff take its own way… we have seen it when the chief of the staff told that Russian army would attack launchers if US hit Russian soldiers…then USA attacked abandoned building of Barzeh…other example is when Il 20 was shot down…Russian military blame israel and supply S-300 to SAD…other example is SU 35 flying over south Lebanon to prevent israeli airstrikes…during war Armenia vs Azerbajan..Russian military ( not yeltsin) threat Turkey if this country invade Armenia…during kosovo war..Russian military ( Not Yeltsin and Oligarchs) send troops… Read more »

Russian militaries obey or end before a martial court… S-300 has only been delivered (a 10y old order) to provide Syrian air defence an IFF system recognising Russian aircraft as “friends”. BTW, Russian DM simply lied to the public : the 4 Israeli F-16 never hid behind the Il-20M. At the moment SyADF started to shoot missiles in every direction in LOAL (lock on after launch) mode, F-16s had already released their bombs for more than 20 minutes, enough for a F-16 which can fly Mach 1.2 at sea level, to be 475km from drop point while flying under the… Read more »

Ohad Cohen-Nov didnt survive..on 23 sep-2016 Syrian air defense claimed that a F-16 was shot down while was flying over Quneitra province..Israel denied it!…” 30-Octu-2018..F-16 block 52 119 sqn serial number 00-1047 ran off a taxi way during… Read more »
