Syria Shoots Down Israeli Plane After Israel Launches Air Operation In Support Of ISIS

By Brandon Turbeville

Only a week away from a number of Israeli officials making statements suggesting the buildup to a war with Hezbollah, the Israeli Air Force once again launched airstrikes in Syria, alleging that the strikes were taken against a weapons convoy of the Lebanese militia coming through Syria. Four airplanes took place in the operation according to the Syrian military.

However, the Syrian military activated their anti-aircraft missile defense system against the Israeli jets, taking one down and hitting one more. The jet crashed in Israeli territory, however, as the planes were back over Israeli soil by the time the missile was able to connect.

The Israeli operation and the missile firing were both confirmed by the Syrian and Israeli governments. Israel would not confirm that a plane had actually been shot down, however. This is typical of Israel who tends not to acknowledge any military defeats or setbacks publicly.

Israel claimed that its air defense system, Arrow, was able to intercept one of the missiles but would not elaborate. It also refused to say whether or not the missiles caused any further damage to Israeli territory, saying that the missiles did not compromise the safety of civilians or compromise any aircraft.

The Syrian government responded to the Israeli operation by calling it “blatant aggression” designed to support “terrorist gangs” and “deflect from the victories” of the SAA. Of course, one could scarcely argue with the Syrian statement because Israel’s operation, as well as all of its past operations in Syria, is, indeed, blatant aggression. Not only that, but bombing a militia fighting terrorists is, undoubtedly, a bombing operation in support of terrorists.

Still, some are disputing the Israeli claims that Hezbollah was ever the target to begin with. These sources have argued that the Syrian military and its operations around Palmyra, particularly those centered around removing terrorists from the oil and gas fields which aid ISIS in terms of funding.

Interestingly enough, Arrow, one of Israel’s multi-layered missile defense systems, is designed to intercept long-range ballistic missiles that are located higher in the stratosphere, not mere anti-aircraft missiles. This fact has caused many to question the veracity of the Israeli claim regarding the interception of the Syrian missile.

Israel has launched a series of attacks against the Syrian military and Hezbollah inside Syria since the crisis began in 2011. Indeed, Israel has even been provided material and medical support to terrorists since the crisis began in earnest.

    Good for the Syrians!

    There’s evidence Israelis are using DU.

    • Joe Blow

      So are we. 😒 So ironic ya know, we are the nation who dropped A bombs on the Japanese civilians, twice, we have been using DU for a decade in the mid East, and yet we are willing to go to war with Iran or Korea now because we don’t want them to have nuclear power ability.

      • jack S

        do you even know what DU is? HInt: not radioactive

          Hence the birth defects.

          The Pentagon claims that American forces and Iraqis are not at risk from contact with depleted uranium, which is used in armor-piercing munitions and protective tank plating.

          That’s baloney to some scientists who insist the widespread use of depleted uranium during the American-led invasion and occupation of Iraq poses a grave danger.

          Despite attempts to reassure the public, the Pentagon remains on the defensive.

          Depleted uranium, or DU, is a radioactive by-product from the industrial process used to enrich uranium. It is the leftover uranium-238 that results when scientists seek to transform naturally occurring uranium into uranium-235, which is used to produce nuclear energy.

          The Army values munitions manufactured from depleted uranium because, when fused with metal alloys, they are considered the most effective warhead for penetrating enemy tanks. Also, because depleted uranium is twice as dense as lead, the Army uses DU as armor plating.

          Once a depleted-uranium round strikes its target, the projectile begins to burn on impact, creating tiny particles of radioactive U-238. Winds can transport this radioactive dust many miles, potentially contaminating the air that innocent humans breathe.

          This inhalation may cause lung cancer, kidney damage, cancers of bones and skin, as well as birth defects and chemical poisoning.

            Thank You very much …..

          • GIVVO6_B

            Exactly right. That is why Fallujah is more contaminated than Hiroshima ever was and will remain so for a very long time.

          • jack S

            Because the “D” stands for depleted; The following is from a real source: DU has 40 percent less radioactivity than naturally occurring Uranium. DU is a potential health hazard if it enters the body, such as through embedded fragments, contaminated wounds, and inhalation or ingestion. #stopconsiracytheories #stopantiscience

        • Laskarina

          This comment is illustrative of the fact that physics is not longer taught in HS.

        • Craig Watts

          Not radioactive? That would be yes, and no. No, you’re not going to make an A-bomb from it anytime soon, but DU is one of the reasons areas in Bosnia and Iraq have higher levels of contamination in their soil and water supplies, and it is affecting the health of both populations.
          Joe Blow below explains it well.

        • thelargekahoona

          Are you insane? DU is deadlier than a fission weapon


    Israel is a rogue criminal state outside of international conventions by choice. They should be banned and ostracized as the threat to humanity that they are. Thanks for 9/11 and Fukushima Israel.

    • GAZOO

      Fukushima ?

      • niscavage

        like the 911 airports, Israeli company controlled security at Fukushima. Had unobstructed run of the place. Stuxnet found on Japanese computers months before hand. Any country that would allow that filth to embed themselves anywhere in their infrastructure is just plain asking to be screwed, jewed and tatoo’ed.

        • GAZOO

          Considering it was built on a fault line and in a flood zone and they were storing the used fuel rods on the roof, it seems to me that it was planned from the time it was built to create this disaster. Same with 911. It was planned to be destroyed from was time it was conceived.

        • Joe Blow

          There you go. Jim Stone has an award deserving report on this.

        • DarkEyes

          And the rest of the planet as well. Think of it what they the scum have done to all of us.

  • Roland Gilmore

    Did they think they could outrun SS 40 missiles? Stupid Israelis!

    • Dimitri Ledkovsky

      Not stupid but very ARROGANT.

    • William Burke

      I don’t believe he thought that; he was trying to get back into Israeli airspace in order to not eject over Syrian airspace.

  • Robbie Cheney

    We are about to find out the truth about Donald Trump. Is he just the latest Deep State ‘stooge’ or their worst nightmare?

  • Bob Cherry

    One of the Zionist race soldiers met justice when his plane crashed.
