    This was this week in Iraq. Is this the future for US soldiers and their support in Syria as well?

    It has more to do with recent israel/UAE peace agreements and with the threats of Trump concerning the preparations of an attack on US Sauth African ambassador by Iran.

    Talks in Idlib will never be productive, Russia would like Turkey to leave but they aren't going to do much sides use words.

    The Turks will never give up that land now, Portion of Syria was annexed pure and simple.

    I wouldn't like to be in the place if the US generals right now in D.C.

    They need to plan to face Russians in Europe and Syria and China in Asia.

    They should be pissing their pants. That's why they increased b-52 flights. They have nothing else than bluff.

    That's bullshit. The radar facing Gaza are facing the south and russian ships are in the north 200 or 300km away and radar horizon applies to jammers too.

    It's just that those Israeli AD system suck.

    It is the nickname the pilots give it so I think you are on the right track but something more along the lines of:

    OTYG.... older than your grandfather

    BBYG... born before your grandfather...

    Does anyone know how true this is? I never heard about this?

    What evidence can be collected by commercial satellites to prove the use or otherwise of EW equipment?

    Why would the Russian Navy want to fake an attack from the Gaza Strip on Israel? The risk of direct retaliation would do the Palestinians no favours... especially as they will receive punishment for a crime this time they did not commit...

    If anything they would be jamming unprovoked Israeli attacks on Syria.

    Which makes me think it is about propaganda... concealing Israeli aggression in Syria.... the stand off attacks they launch, and suggesting a Palestinian attack that never happened... and the Russians are to blame...

    Did they get the information from the Steele report?

    I rather not be in any of these in ATGM rich environment. Even heaviest Bradley (these in Syria don't look very uparmoured) is just a target practice for TOW/Kornet/HJ-8. Puma, or even better, Namer/T-15 would be better suited, but also heavy IEDs and now popular EFPs don't discriminate who they kill.

    In so many years - Israel and Russia maintained direct phoneline, traded, Israel didn't impose any sanctions on Russia, didn't shoot down Russian planes or drones when they crossed into what is considered Israeli airspace and vice versa. Russia could have downed Israeli planes so many times, but they didn't. Bibi visited Moscow 3000x times, according to Tass Russia and Israel is in talks about Covid vaccines.

    I agree, the Russians and Israelis are communicating and cooperating based on their own interests, which makes the Russians faking a digital missile attack on Israel... presumably to get them to attack in return the Palestinians... but how does Russia benefit from that whether they believe it is an attack or not?

    Which makes me think it has nothing at all to do with Russia or Russian ships... why would a Russian ship want to make an enemy installation believe it was under rocket attack from another direction?

    They are making up bullshit, but why? Are they planning to open fire on Russian ships and use this as an excuse to justify an attack?

    Israel used Russians as meat shields in their attacks on Syria and in response despite all Israeli efforts to try to blame Syria, Russia knew what had happened and and took appropriate measures to make sure it didn't happen again.
