    Incredible work, geo-located location from the nighttime photo and an amazing same view daytime photo. Hats off to the skill.

    Looks to be an effective raid. Happy day for the IAF.

    Those photos seem to match to that place pretty closely.

    Do you mean the attack was in a different place or that the second photo is the right place but not of this attack? If so do you have a picture?

    That top photo looks computer generated and the front area on fire is not in correct alignment with the one in the top photo... the road leading away on the middle left of the picture is right, but the heavily populated urban area in the distance doesn't exist in the top photo...

    In the night photo in the background is an enormous urban area... which is not present in the day photo... and the front burning area in the night photo is not aligned in the top (day) photo either.

    But fundamentally I don't think the day photo is a photo... it is computer generated terrain.

    The "day" photo is obviously from something like Google Earth.

    Google Earth also have that terrain contour feature which very helpful but apparently underrated.

    -------------

    All these attacks are a clear sign of some deals behind the doors between Bellirigents of Syrian war. A Balance which should not be broken. But for some reason people keep pointing fingers on the S-300's. The absence of Syrian MiG's for air cover was the first sign i realized.

    The long story short is that Israeli are allowed to strike as long as it not a threat to current regime or endangering Russian personnel, Iran can still send troops to reinforce Syrian forces against the terrorist, US are basically "free reign" across Northern Syria but no more than that, Turks are basically occupying the Northern Syria but no more than that, Kurds are in the mercy of both SAA and Turkey and apparently made no real move.

    It's really difficult for me to explain above to people now as they tend to have a black and white perspective.

    Read from the bottom up. As he says, Syria is going to have to respond to the IAF taking the piss like this.

    Syria, which is exhausted by 10 years of war, can’t for sure stop such complex attacks. It is impossible with the available resources. Voices within the SAA calling for a “ military response” are for sure louder than ever, as this has became the only way to deter Israel.

    ·
    23h
    The operation proved that Israel can attack targets in Hama from eastern Syria, not only from Lebanon as it usually does. A Syrian officer regarded the operation as “live fire drills” believing that it was more of a training as Israel could have stuck the targets in easier ways.

    ·
    23h
    The complex Israeli operation was meant as a political message and a demonstration of Israel’s aerial capabilities. The targeted positions were mostly Syrian. The most valuable target, the EW network, was completely Syrian.

    ·
    23h
    The second stage of the Israeli attack resulted in no human losses whatsoever. All the targeted sites were already evacuated.

    ·
    23h
    Per usual, most Israeli sources claimed that the targeted sites were “Iranian positions,” while in fact they were joint ammo depots. All of them contained low-caliber ammo and IRAMs. They were mainly used by Iranian forces and the NDF, but would also supply the SAA.

    ·
    23h
    From northeast Syria, IAF warplanes launched a new set of guided munitions. This time, the targets were in Hama; the onion drying factory near al-Salamiyah, the cultural center in Sabburah, the forage factory near Aqarib, a military camp near Ithriyah.

    23h
    After destroying the EW network, the IAF launched the second stage of its operation [early on June 24]. A second group of Israeli warplanes followed the same route. This time, however, they penetrated Syria’s airspace.

    ·
    23h
    The Early Warning network, which included three radars in Tell al-Sahun [As Suwayda], Ghabgib [Deir Ezzor] and As Sukhnah [Homs], was completely destroyed. Two SAA officers were killed and two others were injured. The network was not supported by any air-defense systems.

    ·
    23h
    In the first stage [late on June 23], a group of Israeli warplanes, likely F-35, snuck along the Syrian-Jordanian border. From there, they fired guided munitions against a newly-established Early Warning network of the Syrian Air Defense Force and the Reconnaissance Directorate.

    23h
    Last week, the Israeli Air Force carried out a complex operation against a set of targets in southeast, east and central Syria. The operation which took place on June 23, 24 consisted of two main stages.

    Urgent Explosions were heard in some parts of the eastern countryside of As-Suwayda, amid initial information, which is likely to be of the Israeli airstrikes at the Tel al-Sahn point, located east of the villages of Al-Hoya and Meleh, a radar point belonging to the Syrian army.

    Syria’s air defenses are firing at air targets in the sky over Hama, SANA news agency reported.

    “The air defenses are repelling missile attacks of the enemy on the outskirts of Hama [220 km from Damascus] and hit several targets,” the report said.

    Earlier, the Israeli Air Defense allegedly attacked army positions in As-Suwayda and Deir ez-Zor. Two soldiers died and four others were wounded. Al Hadath TV channel reported that the missile attacks on the Syrian military facilities were delivered by the Israeli Air Force. According to the report, the attacks targeted pro-Iranian units fighting on the side of the Syrian army.

    This clearly begs question on where are the MiG's. They should be on air and be the first to respond upon suspicious radar contact.

    The main component for air defense is always fighter aircrafts. SAM's will be to down whatever remains from the aircrafts.

    Using their mig-29 would increase Israeli attack. SAA can't face a more serious Israel involvement. As of today Israeli attacks don't hurt that much SAA.

    No mention of IAF shot down for some reason. More at link

    Israel has destroyed one-third of Syrian air defenses in the past two years, and close to a thousand surface-to-air missiles have been launched towards Israel Air Force jets during missions for its “war-between-wars” campaign targeting Iranian infrastructure in the war-torn country.

    Israel has been carrying out its war-between-war campaign against Iran since 2013, striking thousands of targets in Syria, and according to foreign reports in neighboring Iraq, in order to prevent the smuggling of advanced weaponry to Hezbollah in Lebanon and the entrenchment of its forces in Syria where they could easily act against Israel.

    Israel does not comment on most alleged strikes, but it has been accused of carrying out strikes around the capital of Damascus as well as deep inside Syrian territory including in northern Syria near the Turkish border as well as the al-Bukamal region near the Syrian-Iraqi border.

    Nevertheless, with an increase in strikes by Israel, the Syrian regime began to respond and fire surface-to-air missiles at Israeli jets. According to data seen by The Jerusalem Post, 844 such missiles were fired between 2017-2020 compared to just two fired between 2010-2013.

    In response to the firing of the missiles, IAF jets struck the launchers and have taken out regime air-defense batteries such as Sa2, Sa17, Sa22, and SA5. Dozens of Syrian regime soldiers were killed in the strikes.

    Cheesy propaganda drivel. Not surprising coming from the J<> Post. They all got taken out have they. Really.

    Regime this and regime that. The clowns who brazenly succor Daesh/ISIS are not credible in their hate smear.

    Isreali + turkish numbers = 200% of SAA air defence system destroyed which is something like 1000 pantsir, 400 buk launchers and 200 radars + syrian space based radars too.

    Why doesn't Russia give a TorM1/2 to Syria? Damascus airport and T3 and T4 would be much safer with it. I do not understand that.

    Because they don't give a shit about Iranian fight against Israel and won't help them over that. Russians and Syrian don't really like the begaviour of Iran in Syria.

    Unfortunately Iran uses bases where SAA operates and their soldier get bombed everytime. Iran hides its deaths.

    Iran is producing AD system and can use them if they want there untill israel destroys them.
