«Israel» Deploys Anti-Missile System on Syria Border
Local Editor

An agitated "Israeli" military has reportedly deployed anti-missile systems to the Syrian border, a day after it lost an advanced F-16 warplane in Syria's first serious air defense operation to confront "Israeli" violations of its airspace.

"Israeli" Air Defense batteries

The "Israeli" Jerusalem Post on Sunday cited witnesses as saying that they had seen convoys of "missile defense batteries" north-bound near the city of Baka al-Gharbiya. It said others had posted photos of "trucks carrying the batteries on central highways in northern 'Israel'."

The report said the "Israeli" army had "refused to comment."

Early on Saturday morning, reportedly eight "Israeli" warplanes were deployed to target positions inside Syria. The Syrian military, which has previously absorbed occasional "Israeli" strikes, activated its air defense systems and shot down at least one "Israeli" F-16.

The "Israeli" military has long boasted of superior aerial power. Before Saturday's crash, the Tel Aviv regime had not lost a warplane in 35 years - since the first "Israeli" war on Lebanon, in 1982.

The downing by Syria of the "Israeli" jet worked to deflate that narrative, particularly since it was only the first time Syria was actively confronting intruding "Israeli" aircraft.

Various "Israeli" news articles and analyses reflected the sentiment that the self-proclaimed "Israeli" "invincibility" had been shattered. Reports spoke of "cracks" in "Israeli" "arrogance," and "a blow to the pride" of the "Israeli" regime.

Iran has said it has no military presence in Syria and is only offering Damascus advisory military help.

Observers say that the downing of the "Israeli" jet sent Tel Aviv the message that Syria and other countries whose airspace is violated by the "Israeli" entity are now ready to stop those violations.

On Sunday, "Israeli" Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu suggested that the "Israeli" attacks against positions in Syria would continue.

He said the regime had conducted strikes after the downing of the F-16, which he said showed" that our modus operandi has not changed one bit."
