The Syrian Arab Air Defense Forces (SyAADF) interpreted 21 out of 24 missiles fired by Israeli warplanes during the most recent aerial attack on the Syrian capital Damascus, Vadim Kulit, deputy chief of the Russian Center for Reconciliation in Syria, said on September 3.

According to kulit, the Israeli missiles were intercepted using Russian-made Buk-M2E medium-range and Pantsir-S short-range air-defense systems.

“At about 01:30 on September 3, four Israeli F-15 tactical fighter jets fired 24 guided missiles at targets on Syrian territory from Lebanon’s airspace,” the Russian commander said. “Russian-made Buk-M2E and Pantsir-S systems on duty in the Syrian air defense units downed 21 missiles.”

The Israeli attack targeted “Iranian positions” in Damascus International Airport. One of the targets was allegedly a warehouse containing “strategic weapons”.

While repelling the attack, a S-200 long-range air-defense system of the SyAADF fired a missile that chanced an Israeli warplane all the way to the Israeli capital Tel Aviv. The missile exploded off the shores of the city. In response to the incident, the Israeli military struck the system.

According to a recent report by the London-based Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper, Russian has been working to restrict Israel’s attacks on Syria by improving the capabilities of the SyAADF.
