    As per the clips on livemap, at least two missiles/bombs struck land. 0100 local time so can’t see what they actually hit.
    It does like the Syrian air defence crews are learning an awful lot or indeed, have learnt a lot.

    Quality is for sure not as advertized.

    But their main problem is that they have a small amount of systems. When they have tensions with hezbollah or hamas, i.e north or south, they have to move systems from one to the other side of israel.

    Reality is that even if they have 100% success rate, they can't face a major coordinated attack by hundreds of cruise missiles with hundreds of BM and thousands of rockets.

    And my guess is that Iran has been bringing plenty of cruise and ballistic missiles in Lebanon, Syria and Yemen. In case of a Israeli attack on iranian nuclear facilities, they will blow up all Israeli high/medium value targets within Israel.

    Air bases, awacs, HQ, Mossad, military industrial companies, ground equipement storage, oil facilities, ships...

    Nuclear power plant will be kept safe unless israel tries to use its own nuks.

    IMO Israeli are aware they are at risk and don't want to escalate but in words only. Those attacks in Syria have no value and they destroy tinny houses everytime.

    Just my guess.

    21/24 Israeli missiles shot down per Tass.

    https://tass.ru/mezhdunarodnaya-panorama/12300807
    MOSCOW, September 3. / TASS /. Fighters of the Israeli Air Force fired 24 missiles at targets in Syria, the country's air defense forces destroyed 21 missiles. This was announced to reporters on Friday by the deputy head of the Russian Center for the Reconciliation of the Warring Parties in Syria, Rear Admiral Vadim Kulit.

    And according to avia.pro, the remaining 3 missiles didn't hit their target.

    (I initially saw the 21/24 figure on avia.pro, then went to tass.ru to verify (more up to date than tass.com). Then at tass.ru I would have normally done a search for Сирия, the Russian word for Syria, but in this case it was the lead article.)

    Hope Putin tells Erdogan to make sure his troops remain out of the firing line so it is just the cannon fodder that becomes the cannon fodder.

    Starting to get a grasp of reality perhaps?


    ERBIL — The Kurdish forces in Syria have begun considering an agreement with the Syrian regime amid fears of a possible US withdrawal from northeast of Syria, only days after the US troops' pullout from Afghanistan where the Taliban became dominant.

    Speaking to Tasnim News Agency, Riad Darar, the head of the Syrian Democratic Council (SDC), which is the political wing of the Syrian Democratic Forces , confirmed that there are "real fears experienced by the political and military forces in the region, which have increased, after the withdrawal of the US army from Afghanistan."

    A possible withdrawal of the US from northeast of Syria, also known as the Syrian Kurdistan or more commonly as Rojava, could be followed by "catastrophic results," he said, pointing out that "the SDF does not know Washington's intentions regarding exiting Syria or not, and no one can bid on SDF that it fears the Americans' exit," arguing that the US "will leave one day."

    Darar revealed that the SDC and SDF are ready to begin dialogue with Damascus for an agreement without setting any conditions on any new round of dialogue with the Syrian government.

    They cling to some constants, which are summarized as "real partnership with Damascus, in addition to activating UN Resolution 2254 to reach a political solution in the country."

    Darar additionally called on Damascus for a real dialogue, saying that "the (SDC) and (SDF) are ready for dialogue with the Syrian government on productive bases." .

    However, he pointed out that the resumption of dialogue with the Syrian regime depends on Damascus's response, adding that "they are ready for dialogue at any time because they aspire to a Syrian-Syrian solution that depends on political dialogue, not military force."

    Dirar pointed out that "Washington does not stand in the way of dialogue between Damascus and (SDF), while the Syrian government accuses the SDF of "working for the Americans" and receiving orders.

    The trend continue..... (last time 22 out of 24 missiles delivered in the same way by 6 F-15 from Lebanese airspace).

    There must be happened some kind of heavy damge to the Israeli HUMINT network in Syrian territory, at least in the Damascus and Homs areas; the informations the operatives collect on the field or from moles in Syrian structure are probably falsified and not allow to plan similar attacks, like in the past, to avoid the Бук-М2Э and Панцирь-С1 launchers and pass through area defended only by outdated Syrian air defenses.

    I wonder if they use dummy inflatable pantsir and buk to divert Israeli attacks.

    Russia could have provided it to test them against israeli air force. That's the best place to test such equipement with some fake radars with them to make them detected by isreli planes.

    Sounds to me like they have plugged a leak, but have also started moving these air defence vehicles around the place so when the Israelis decide in the morning to attack a target that afternoon they wont know what is going to be there to stop them... compounded with the fact that while Russian radar can't see through mountains either, but they might be monitoring them takng off and landing which will give them some clues as to when something is up.

    Certainly the inflatable systems might be getting tested... they are for export and should be quite significantly cheaper than the real thing, but I think that would have the opposite effect that they want by making them think things are much better defended than they actually are so instead of 24 missiles fired at targets they might launch two or three times more which will cost them a fortune but also have a better chance of getting through simply because the 6 inflatable systems on site can shoot down any targets at all while the two or three actual vehicles might only have missiles for half the attack strength.

    NATO member state Turkey continues to drone-kill the commanders of the NATO-sponsored Kurdish SDF terrorists in northern Syria who are left confused with the US’s inaction after they sold all their cards to it betraying the Syrian people.

    The Turkish army is violating the Syrian territories and Syrian air space when they carry out their operations inside Syria, nobody is upset and nobody is seriously complaining because simply, the Kurdish SDF terrorists had all the chances to review their betrayal and strike a deal with the Syrian state and instead, and despite seeing their US patrons withdraw from Afghanistan leaving behind their proxies, and despite the dozens of times the same USA had let them down to face their fate, they continue to be the US’s faithful servants on the account of the Syrian people.

    The following report by Al Mayadeen’s Dima Nassif explains further:
    The video is also available on BitChute and YouTube.

    Transcript of the video report:

    Turkey is changing its strategy in northeastern Syria, drones assassinate more than eight leaders of the Turkish and Iranian SDF Kurds and bomb their meeting headquarters in Tal Tamr.

    So, there are no military operations or a new ground incursion, Ankara wants heads of the SDF to be killed. The early elections make a military operation an adventure that Erdogan and his party do not want to bear its consequences for now.

    Drones are not alone in the latest Turkish escalation, artillery shells have been intensively bombing along the border strip from Manbij to Tal Tamr and al-Darbasiyah, and military reinforcements have been sent by Ankara to its factions on the Hasaka and Aleppo fronts

    Turkish assurances to Moscow and Washington and that the latest targeting is only to liquidate leaders of the (Kurdistan) Workers’ Party (PKK) and the SDF who have refused to leave northern Syria have infuriated these leaders who issued a torrent of statements warning of the imminent launch of military action against them, while appealing to Moscow and Washington to intervene to stop any battle against it in the region.

    The confusion in the ranks of the SDF prompted it to hold a meeting with the leadership of the Russian forces in Qamishli and another in Ayn al-Arab to persuade it to pressure Turkey to stop the use of drones in SDF-controlled areas and establish a Russian no-fly zone in the north in exchange for expanding the Russian presence in their areas of control and discussing the return of the Syrian state institutions\N to the countryside Raqqa and Aleppo.

    Despite adhering to the close alliance with the Americans, the Kurdish politicians seem to trust the political dealings with the Russians regarding Ankara more than they trust the Americans; Washington only called on the parties to commit to de-escalation and the need to reach a settlement in response to the Turkish escalation, the American repudiation of their pledges with the Kurds appears as a prelude to the withdrawal of forces on the ground.

    Dima Nassif, Damascus, for Al-Mayadeen.
