Russia Will Establish An Unofficial No-Fly Zone Over Syria

By The Saker

September 26, 2018 “Information Clearing House” –  Defense Minster Shoigu announced measures which went far beyond what I had hoped for.  Specifically, Shoigu has announced that Russia will

1.  Supply S-300 air defense systems (with a 250km range) to the Syrians in the next two weeks.
2.  Russia will deliver advanced automated air defense management systems which will *dramatically* increase the Syrian air defense capabilities and prevent future “friendly fire” incidents.
3.  Russia will use her electronic warfare capabilities to suppress satellite navigation, onboard radar systems and communications of warplanes attacking targets on Syrian territory in the regions over the waters of the Mediterranean Sea bordering with Syria.

This is a very flexible and elegant solution for the following reasons:

It establishes a de facto air exclusion zone over Syria, but not a de jure one.  Thus, the Russians will have the flexibility to decide on a nation by nation and aircraft by aircraft basis which aircraft should be suppressed/engaged and which ones to only track and monitor.  This will give Russia a very powerful negotiating position with all the actors of this war.

It goes without saying that while these new capabilities will be deployed in Syria in response to the Israeli actions, they will also dramatically boost the Syrian capabilities against any potential aggressors including the USA and US client states.  The S-300s will make it possible for the Syrian to detect and even track the Israeli aircraft right after their take-off and while still in Israeli air space.

While the Russians have not indicated which automated air defense management system they plan to deliver to Syria, it is likely that this is one which is typically used to control the engagement of S-300 and Buk air defense systems, the Poliana D-4.  The delivery of this system will dramatically increase the air defense capabilities of the Russian task force in Syria making it much harder for Neocon à la Bolton to target Russian forces.

I have to admit that I am surprised by the magnitude and quality of this response.

Clearly, the arrogance of the Israelis did not pay off and this time their usual chutzpah was met with a great deal of Russian anger (albeit carefully controlled anger).  For Bibi Netanyahu, the Russian reaction is an absolute disaster because it undermines his entire policy towards Syria (and Lebanon and Iran).  The Israeli strikes (over 200, of which they bothered to notify Russia in only about 10% of the cases) did not yield any tangible benefit for Israel, but has now fundamentally undermined Israel’s relationship with Russia.  As I have said it many times, for all their self-serving propaganda about being so smart, the Israelis are actually pretty incompetent, being blinded, as they are, by their quasi infinite arrogance.

However, please keep in mind that in warfare there is no such thing as a magical silver bullet.  For one thing, the Israelis will still have the option of attacking targets in Syria (be it by using aircraft, or missiles, including sea based), but the difficulty of successfully executing such an attack will increase by an order of magnitude.

The same also goes for the US/NATO/CENTOM/etc.  One option would be to go for a saturation attack by using a very large number of missiles since the Syrian and Russian capabilities are still limited by numbers: even in an ideal situation (excluding EW capabilities), that is even if the kill ratio of Russian missiles is 1:1, the Russians will only be able to shoot down as many enemy missiles as their supplies allow.  The US+Israeli missiles supplies in the region are far bigger.

Second, both the US and Israelis have very sophisticated EW warfare capabilities and rest assured that they will use them if needed.  Yes, the Russians are qualitatively ahead of other countries in this field, but one should never under-estimate the capabilities of the bad guys.

Third, the AngloZionists will now do one of three things: either pretend that they don’t care and basically accept the situation on the ground like they did in South Ossetia and Crimea, or try to negotiate some kind of deal with the Russians, or react with hysterical threats and provocation in the hope that the Russians will blink.  While we can hope for option #1, we also have to realize that options #2 and #3 are far more likely.  In other words, this is far from over.

Finally, this latest news conclusively debunks the notion that Putin is a doormat or sellout and that the Russians are either unable or unwilling to oppose the AngloZionists.  All those who have accused Putin of being Israel’s shabboy goy are going to be busy removing eggs from their collective face. 

The fact that the Russians took their time to analyze what happened and prepare a response was not a symptom of their weakness, but of their responsible behavior in a most dangerous situation.

  1. Those Israelis. Really shot themselves in the foot this time. They seem to be poor planners to say the least. What exactly were their objectives? I doubt even they knew. 🙂

  2. If Puppet Russia does that, (deliver such weapons to Iran and Russia occupied Syria) what are Russia´s eternal lovers, the Jews gonna do to attack the ghost weapon convoys Iran sends -via occupied Syria-, to Hezbollah in southern Lebanon?
    Netanyahoo (who twitches now like a heroin addict asking for his fix at Chattanooga) surely made it clear to Puppet Trump at the u.n. yesterday..
    Puppet Trump will be asked to ask Puppet Putin ..
    “Look dear Puppet Putin, you got our lord Rosthchild all upset and on my ass all day yesterday about the deployment of such devices because they will neutralize God`s Chosen air force …
    What are these innocent beautiful people (and here an image of Dustin Hoffman comes to mind) wrongly accused of killing Jesus (who chose them) gonna do?
    Please Puppet Putin dont you realize that these people are so paranoid in their heads they turned sauna baths into gas chambers and pizza ovens (so they can bake Pizza, Focaccia, Panzenella and Bruschetta at the resorts Hitler had placed them at momentarily) into Human Ovens?”
    “where will this pretty folks -(again, another Jew face comes to mind, this time Alan Dershowitz smiling) -who recently claimed that Hummus and Falafel, 5.000 years old turkish delicatesses are Jewish- concentrate and direct their rightful efforts so that they can comply with the orders Yahve your Lord gave them in Deutoronomy and Numbers not long ago?”
    I am sure Puppet Putin will find a way to reverse this action.
    I am willing to bet my left nut

  3. One step closer to war.

    It’s coming and it’z coming fast. There is an entire new generation of advanced weapon systems that have moved beyond the destructive capability of nuclear weapons. These new weapons provide the same type of devastating mass destruction without the lingering effects of radiation. Look for deception in crowing over a new, phony “peace dividend” as obsolete nukes and their delivery systems are scrapped in favor of new weapons technology.

    1. Hi Arch,
      The main improvements have been in accuracy. If you can land a small charge within a yard of the target you don’t need the big explosives of the Hellfire missile. Combined with accurate targeting (From drones and satellites) a large number of small, very accurate missiles will be used.

      If they have to take out a building or a big vehicle then the Hellfire is required.

  4. Syria is part of the Grand Design – for Russia to control the Midlle East and surrounding areas decades from now.

    There is a very broad cooperation between Israel and Russia, economic, military, political.

    Russia bought and operates Israeli military drones and many other hight-tech defence systems.

    The trade between the two countries is flourishing. The two countries also coordinate their moves in Syria.

    Russians hold Israel and especially its – medical industry – in very high esteem and there is very big Russian medical tourism flow into Israel (in addition to tourism in general).

    Russia’s strategic VISION for Israel (From a Russian – 2017)

    [ Dmitry Maryasis, Ph.D., is a senior research fellow at the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of

    Sciences and at Skolkovo Business School’s Institute for Emerging Markets Studies. He also serves as a director

    general of the Russia-Israel Business Council. Maryasis, an expert in the economics and politics of contemporary

    Israel, has authored more than 50 research papers and the book “Innovation Economy Building Experience: The

    Case of Israel” (Moscow, 2015). ]

    The aim of Zionist-Marxist Russia and Zionist-Marxist Israel – IS – to prevent peace between the Arab countries and Israel until – ALL – of the Arab countries are forced to adopt socialism UNDER Russian leadership.

    The New York – Moscow – Tel Aviv Triangle has been in play for more than 70 years..!!

    Israel and the Russians are ideological allies—both follow the ideas of Marx, so both are communist-socialist. Yet,

    the Russians supplied military equipment to the Arabs—Israel’s enemies; and at the same time, Russia’s FAKE enemy, the United States, was arming Israel.

    To understand the treachery which Zionist-Bolshevik Jews utilize, and to understand the treachery which is used, people must know about the New York-Moscow-Tel Aviv Triangle.

    A heavy migration of Jews from Russia to America started in 1831. Most of these were communist Jews. So many of these communist-Bolshevik Jews settled in New York City that it has been referred to as ‘Moscow on the Hudson’.

    Most major decisions regarding communist policies come not from Moscow, but from New York City.

    There is a close tie between the Zionist-Bolshevik Jews in New York City and the Zionist-Bolshevik Jews in

    Moscow, and extending to include the Zionist-Bolshevik Jews who dominate Israel’s government.

    The Zionist power over the US Government in Washington, DC stems from the Zionist-Bolsheviks centered in New York City. It is from New York that orders go out to the vast Zionist network all over the US. It is a network that influences the economic and political affairs of the US government, and all state governments, and the governments of the larger and even medium sized cities. This power of the Zionist-Bolshevik Jews over the US makes the New York leg of the New York-Moscow-Tel Aviv Triangle a tremendous influence over communist policies.

    The New York Federal Reserve Bank holds the main power in the private central banking system in the US.

    A PACT sealed the agreements in 1949. Representing Israel: Ambassador Golda Meir, a Bolshevik Jewess, met with two representatives of the Soviet Union: Kaganovich, a Bolshevik Jew and Stalin who had married a Bolshevik Jewess. They made a secret agreement—a pact.


    1. Israel would not allow any Western country, especially the US to build military bases on Israeli territory.
    2. Israel would allow an official communist party to function freely in Israel.
    3. Israel would not make any agreement to solve the Palestinian problem.
    4. Israel would influence world Jewry, especially in the US to have Western Powers adopt a policy of favoring Israel over the Arabs.
    5. Israel was to continue its Marxist economic policies and prevent any free-enterprise tendencies.


    1. The Soviets would institute a pro-Arab policy solely as a camouflage for its true intention, which was to furnish aid to the Arabs, but never enough to enable the Arabs to destroy Israel.
    2. The Soviets would open the gates of Soviet satellite countries to Jewish immigration to Israel. Should this be insufficient, Soviet Russia then would open its own gates to immigration.
    3. The Soviets would absolutely guarantee the security of Israel.

    ** Both the Soviet Union and Israel would exchange intelligence reports.

    From the terms of this pact, you can see it was, and still is, the aim of Russia and Zionist-Marxist Israel to prevent peace between the Arab countries and Israel until all the Arab countries are forced to adopt socialism under Russian leadership.

    A RECENT TREND in Russia is to consider itself a potential MAJOR PARTNER to Israel — a capable substitute, at least partially, for the United States.

    Having effectively “returned” to the Middle East, Russia is seeking to become a “fair moderator” in the region striving for its general stabilization.

    Moscow welcomes Israel’s stable relations with Turkey, Egypt and Jordan are positive spots in the overall unstable situation in the Middle East.

    “Political and military contacts between Russia and Israel are on the rise.”

    1. Pat, did not the US just open a military base on Israeli territory.
      Those pesky Zionists, never stick to the deal.

  5. Putin like all leaders must follow the wishes of those who keep him in power, many voiced displeasure in Russia at the killing of 15 loyal Russian servicemen, Putin tried to play it down , the voices calling for action where too loud, Putin changed tact, it remains to be seen how far the voices will take their revenge, but the loss of the 15 has changed the Syrian game, and changed it to the disadvantage of the Zionist.

  6. Israeli planes deliberately attracted the missile to the Russian plane, a Casus Belli? Nobody can win a non-nuclear war. Technology now makes it impossible, but Israel would not hesitate to nuke any non-nuclear country.

  7. pat – here’s the theme song… guess the name???


    1. TROJ,
      From Jew to Jew. Donaldos Israel knows no borders. No laws apply. His Israel is limitless with numerous pleasure and vices. Israel is espiritual. Not material. Ask your Rebe. But to Donaldos credit, he pays his tab. Dont “smootch” off anyone. Donaldo is the ultimate host. Jew and Goy alike are welcome in any of his homes. The physical Israel is experiencing difficult times thanks to fat-ass imposter Bibi. I pray, yes believe it, for my fellow Jews in Israel. They need a prayer. Im for them. But Donaldo is a realista. Our leadership, US, Israelí , is sad. Perhaps Israel should start cultivating tequila to deaden the pain. Try some TROJ. It may help

  8. Oh dear, Oh my, I can’t figure out what is mo’ offensive to Lobro and his buddies, the Russians establishing a NO-FLY zone over Syria, something which is inimical to the interests of Lobro’s drinking buddies waging JEWHAD under the guise of waging “Islamic Jihad”, Lobro’s best friends ; Or, the uncouth foul potty language one comes across here at Darkmoon on a daily regular basis — Circassian being the worst offender.

    Gee, I hope Lobro and his friends don’t think we’re uncultured, coarse, ill-bred and ill-mannered, low-class, for our vulgarity. WE would hate to leave that impression on Lobro and his friends. Right, uncle?

    I’ll wash my mouth out with 🝔soap🝔 as I say a Mea Culpa or two to make my amends to Lobro and his buddy-buddies for offending them with my potty language, maybe that will do the trick and Lobro will come back to US!

    You TOO, Circassian, now don’t forget to wash your mouth out with 🝔soap🝔, Circassian, your language is atrocious!!! Absolutely shocking! 😀

  9. ‘Unofficial No-Fly Zone’
    Fingers crossed the unofficial part won’t be relying on a gentleman’s agreement.

    This is worth hearing again. From one honest Russian to another, (and the rest of us), perhaps The Saker might glean a little something to help in his ciphering and reasoning.

    At the very end of the clip I couldn’t help but notice
    Mr. Shurygin’s subdued optimism as to the Russian strategies/tactics now being implemented and explored.
    He doesn’t seem at all convinced..

  10. indeed, we’re just learning to talk…
    sorry about the problem…
    how about this one then?

    (Or maybe just forget it if the link is not that important).

  11. A few weeks back anti government protesters burned down the Iranian consulate in Basra Iraq, this week the same anti government protesters attacked the US consulate , the US blames Iran.
    In other news fiddles the cat got stuck in a tree, the US blames Iran,cobblers, well yes, but apparently the US government believes it’s population will believe anything.
