IDF Ethos: Israel Informed Russia of Planned Strikes on Syria

Israel Informed Russia of Planned Strikes on Syria
The Israeli Defense Forces informed Russia of the planned airstrikes on Syria in retaliation for an Iranian salvo, a military spokesman said.

"The Russians were informed prior to the attack through the existing mechanism," Israel's Jonathan Conricus told reporters at a briefing on Thursday.

The military communication channel was set up between Israel and Russia in fall 2015 to prevent erroneous engagements in Syria.

Israeli warplanes raided Iranian positions in Syria overnight, firing dozens of rockets into the Syrian territory in response to a barrage of Iranian rockets, the Israeli army said Thursday.


  1. La noche de este miércoles, el Ejército israelí ha reportado que fuerzas iraníes desplegadas en Siria han lanzado unos 20 misiles contra los Altos de Golán. De acuerdo con los informes preliminares, el ataque no ha dejado heridos.

    Los misiles han sido interceptados por el sistema de defensa antiaérea 'Cúpula de Hierro' (Iron Dome), informa la Fuerza de Defensa de Israel en su Twitter.

  2. The Israeli army said Thursday morning that it set back Iranian military capabilities in Syria by “many months” with overnight strikes on “dozens” of targets affiliated with the Revolutionary Guards’ al-Quds Force following an attempted large-scale rocket attack on Israeli territory.

  3. IDF spokesperson Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus said no rockets made impact in Israeli territory. Four projectiles were intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system and the rest fell in Syria, he said. The rockets included both Grad and Fajr-5 models, according to the military.

  4. In a statement, the IDF said it also attacked Syrian air defense batteries that had fired at Israeli planes despite the prior warning not to do so.

  5. We don’t want to escalate the situation, but will respond to a new Iranian attack. We’re ready to give a powerful response

  6. The Syrian air defenses were "confronting a new wave of Israeli aggression rockets and downing them one after the other”, SANA news agency reported, citing a military source on May 10.

    The source said the Arab country’s air defense prevented most of the rockets from reaching their targets, while some managed to hit a number of air defense battalions, radars, and an ammo depot.

  7. Le ministre russe de la Défense n'a pas encore commenté la situation.
