Israeli fighter jets bombed the northeast of Masyaf City, in Hama western countryside bordering Tartous, the first explosions were heard at 2:30 am in the dense of the night, as usual of the Israelis, the explosions were very loud as per the local civilian residents.
The explosions lasted for more than half an hour. Syrian Arab Army air defences, within its limited capabilities, attempted responding to the incoming attack shot down a couple of the incoming missiles.
US fighter jets with Israeli flags were spotted over Kisrawan (Kesrouane), north of Beirut, Lebanon, where they flew very low overheads. The Lebanese government is accomplice in allowing the Israeli fighter jets passage by rejecting offers to arm their national army with air defence systems.
Israeli prime minister Netanyahu is obviously thanking Russian President Mr. Putin for the latest favour the latter gave him stealing the remains of a killed IDF terrorist in Palestinian Yarmouk Refugees Camp graveyard and handing it over to Israel, Netanyahu’s way of thanking Mr. Putin was by bombing inside Syria merely 50 kilometers (31 miles) from the Russian naval service base in Tartous.
There is only one of two explanations for the ongoing Israeli attacks without the SAA being able to shoot down the Israeli fighter jets: Either the S300 missiles delivered to Syria by Russia, more than 8 years late, are not completely handed over to the SAA Air Defence by the Russian suppliers, or the 4 decades old S300 are incapable of spotting and shooting down the Israeli US-made fighter jets.
