S-400 Deliveries Cause No Concern In Damascus, Though Israel May Be Concerned

  Syria's Ambassador to Russia states "No" to concerns about S-400 delivery, but, there are reasons Israel may be concerned. 
 Their upset may arise from the S-400 potentially blocking routes that Israel could travel to attack Iran. 
 For this info, read further down the report, there will be an up to date news item and then were going to stroll down memory lane to a 2012 post that discussed the routes Israel could potentially use to attack Iran.


 1- S-400 deliveries to Turkey cause no concern in Damascus, says ambassador
The deliveries of S-400 air defense missile systems to Turkey kicked off on July 12

MOSCOW, July 15. /TASS/
. Damascus is not concerned over the delivery of Russian-made S-400 surface-to-air missile systems to Turkey as Ankara is coordinating its actions with Moscow, Syria’s Ambassador to Russia Riad Haddad said on Monday.

"No," Haddad said, replying to a question about whether the delivery of the S-400 air defense missile systems to Turkey was causing Damascus’ concern.

"At the present moment, Turkey is playing the role of a guarantor country along with Russia [for the ceasefire in Syria] and is coordinating its steps with the Russian leadership and that is why this is outside our attention," the envoy said.


The deliveries of S-400 air defense missile systems to Turkey kicked off on July 12. According to the data of the Turkish Defense Ministry, three cargo planes delivered several prime movers and a transporter-loader from the S-400 system to Turkey’s Murted airbase on that day. The Turkish Defense Industries Office said that "the deliveries of other parts will continue in the near future.".
2-  Turkish S-400 to Create a New Order in Mid- East Airspace

Deliveries to Turkey
TEL AVIV: Faced with Turkey’s purchase of the Russian S-400 anti-aircraft systems, Israel has already altered its operational patterns while flying over neighboring Syria.

The delivery of the Russian made S-400 surface-air missiles by Turkey, will create a “new order” in Middle Eastern airspace, Israeli sources say.

An Israeli expert said that the critical question is, where will the Turks deploy the Russian system. “If it is deployed near the border with Syria it may endanger air forces that will attack Iranian controlled militias in Iraq,” this source says.

The expert added that the Israeli air force and every other air force that may be involved in operations against Iran or its proxies will now have to train to cope with the S-400, widely considered one of the world’s most formidable surface to air weapons.
Israeli experts who talked on condition of anonymity said that the situation will become critical if and when Russian forces leave Syria. The S-400 operated by Turkey will be capable of following any activity of the IAF over Syria, and that is a totally new situation” one of the experts said.

The bottom line is that implementation of the S-400 deal will likely lead to a rift in relations between Turkey and the other NATO allies. In spite of the fears that a reaction will push Turkey even further toward Russia, it appears likely that the Trump Administration and Congress will respond strongly to the move. Word from Washington is that the situation remains unclear. While the National Security Council has apparently approved a sanctions package, no official comments have yet been released by the White House or the Pentagon. At 2 pm local time, it remained unclear whether President Trump had decided to forego sanctions or not.

Go back to the 2012 post linked above which features reporting on routes Israel might take to attack Iran- Including a link below to a "most interesting pdf" Page 82 shows the routes Israel can take to strike Iran

"2012: "Speaking of clandestine strikes on Iran, particularly via Israel. 
Freethinker left a link to the most interesting pdf.   
Thanks Freethinker!!! I strongly suggest you check it out. Much good reading to be had One little part jumped out at me. Regarding an Israeli "go it alone" attack on Iran scenario...... Pg.82 of 98- ........."

 
If Turkey places the S-400 missiles near the border with Syria....
Can they protect Syria as well as Iran?

    Do you actually believe Turkey would should down Israhelli planes to defend Iran ? I strongly doubt it, as they wont even attack the Kurds for fear of an ZioAmerican response.

  2. Mieszko I : The quotes from the article indicate that Israel (IDF) may be concerned about this possibility.

    Also one of the planned Israeli routes to strike Iran would pass within Turkish airspace- if the s-400 is deployed in the area it could be an issue

    "If it is deployed near the border with Syria it may endanger air forces that will attack Iranian controlled militias in Iraq"

    "The S-400 operated by Turkey will be capable of following any activity of the IAF over Syria, and that is a totally new situation”



    Turkey may view this as simply protecting their own airspace. If Iran and Syria are protected in the meanwhile... well it's just a happy coincidence.

    "they wont even attack the Kurds for fear of an ZioAmerican response. "

    They've been attacking the Kurds quite a bit.
    Booted them out of Afrin. Fighting them in Aleppo and All sorts of terror attacks in the east which have to be either Turkey or Syria or Russia or Iran OR some combination of the already mentioned parties.
    It's been more covert then overt, but, it's going on.
