Russian forces in Syria fired on Israeli aircraft: Israeli newspaper

Russian forces in Syria have fired at least twice on Israeli military aircraft, prompting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to seek improved operational coordination with Moscow, Israel’s top-selling newspaper said on Friday.

Asked about the alleged incidents, however, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said: “In this case, Israeli press reports are far from reality.”

But Netanyahu, in remarks published by Israeli reporters whom he briefed by phone on his talks on Thursday with Russian President Vladimir Putin, said “there have been problems” regarding Israeli military freedom of operation in Syria.

    The Russians are there to help Assad. If the Israelis fire on forces friendly to Assad, they should be fired on.

      According to the article Israel has been preventing weapons transfers to Hezbollah. According to slate Russia is buddies with Iran & Hezbollah.

        …and we’re buddies with Saudi Wahabis, Jihadists in Syria and Iraq, and Turkey.
        Big deal.

        • WE are not buddies with them.

            You better hope Trump gets in.

    • k1962

      Then I guess Israel should fire back.

      • FactsWillOut

        Sure, then it’s Israel against Russia.
        Have at it.

        • k1962

          If Russia is protecting Hezbollah, Israel’s enemy, then they should. Doesn’t seem like Russia is all that strong anyway. They haven’t defeated ISIL or Ukraine.

          • FactsWillOut

            The were not trying to defeat the Ikraine, retard. They got their warm-water secured, which was all they needed.
            Canada and the US are protecting more jihadists than Russia.
            Also, if Israel lacks the power to clean out Gaza, what makes you think they could go after a nuclear superpower, hmm?

          • k1962

            Relax and stop calling people names.

          • FactsWillOut

            Seems you don’t mind name calling, as long as the right people are being called names, hypocrite.

          • Facts seriously there is no need or reason to slag people with profanity.

          • FactsWillOut

            Perhaps not. Perhaps I’m just more honest.
            How should I have taken the “Why don’t you move there?” juvenile quip, hmmm?
            That bimbo could have just as well asked “If you like them so much, why don’t you marry them?”
            This is your blog, so you can delete and ban as you see fit, but I stand by my riposte.

            More whining.
            Who is tying their hands? Russia, or us? Hmmm?

  • ontario john

    I blame global warming.

    • So does our Defense Minister. How anybody can be a veteran of the Afghan war and conclude from that experience that the conflict is due to “global warming”, is beyond me. Obviously our Defense Minister had never been in a natural desert before.

      • DavidinNorthBurnaby

        Or at least the Minister knows what he has to say to remain on Justinian’s good side. He’s a politician and knows how long til pension time.

      • P_F

        He was touted as ‘kick-ass’ colonel by the media & liberals.
        In reality he’s nothing more than a ‘lick-ass’ colonel, a shame to our defense forces.

        • Will Quest

          Hard-shit Sanjan does do a hard dump !

          • P_F

            If you are referring to his time in Afghanistan then be advised that he was nothing more than a paper-pusher who never ventured out of the Canadian base in Afghanistan. And this info comes from a source who has actually served with him.

  • HalcyonDaze

    I`m pretty sure the Soviet Lights don`t have a great recognition program and are just shooting up everything that flies with the hope that if you kill em all, God will sort it out.

    • FactsWillOut

      Corporate income tax in the west: 30% or so.
      Corporate income tax in Russia: 0%.
      Legal carry of firearms for self-defense in the west, zero except for the USA.
      Legal carry of firearms for self-defense in Russia: Allowed.
      Looks like you don’t really know the difference between the commies who have not been in power anywhere but in the west for the last 25 years, and the Russians.

      • luna

        Handguns are generally prohibited in Russia.

        Why you change topics like this is beyond me, I can only guess your sympathetic to Russia.

        • FactsWillOut

          No, they are not.
          He referred to Russia as “Soviet light”, which is in error.
          And yes, I am sympathetic to the only white, Christian country that has not succumbed to the fatal PC infection.

          • luna

            Why not move there?

          • FactsWillOut

            Fuck off.

          • luna

            Hypocrite.

          • FactsWillOut

            So, I’m a hypocrite for not moving to Russia.
            Idiot.

            add “tic” to yer handle, toots.

          • That’s not necessary Facts.

          • FactsWillOut

            Asking “Why don’t you move there ?” = “Fuck off”.

          • Hi Luna I deleted Facts profanity.

        • P_F

          Not anymore.
          Since 2013 Russian citizens can own & use a handgun for self defense. Rifles & Shotguns (including semi-autos) are allowed for hunting & shooting sports.

          • luna

            I see multiple sources online citing restrictions in Russia which include possession of a handgun, and carrying a firearm in public.

  • David Smith

    I’ll stand by Israel and her right to protect her citizens against any aggressor any day of the week.

    • FactsWillOut

      Then maybe Israel should clear out Gaza, and not provoke nuclear superpowers. Provoking a nuclear superpower is the exact opposite of defending it’s citizens.

      • David Smith

        And russian fighter planes should harrass american naval vessels with impunity.

        • FactsWillOut

          Well, if the American Navy won’t stand up for itself, then they get what’s coming to them.
          Also, that incident occurred in the Baltic Sea, not the Gulf of Mexico. So, in reality, who is provoking whom?

          • David Smith

            Yes the americans should have blown them out of the air.

          • FactsWillOut

            Perhaps.
            Perhaps America shouldn’t have surrendered that PB to Iran, as well.

            I don’t think America could defeat Russia in the Baltic Sea.
            Supply chain too sensitive.
            Just like Russia couldn’t defeat America in the Gulf of Mexico.
            Do you think Russian Naval forces should be allowed to patrol the international waters in the Gulf of Mexico with impunity?

          • David Smith

            I think america should exert her hegemony.

          • FactsWillOut

            I think that first America should clean up her own house, get back to being a true Constitutional Republic, get rid of the Feed. Res., declare Islam to be enemy combatants, call proposed violations of the constitution treason, and prosecute accordingly, and then exert her hegemony.

          • P_F

            That’s one sensible comment I agree with.

  • Ho Hum

    Quote: “there have been problems” regarding Israeli military freedom of operation in Syria”

    Why would Israeli fighters be free to operate in Syrian airspace? If a Syrian jet tried to operate in Israeli airspace I am pretty sure that Israel would not hesitate to shoot it down.

    • FactsWillOut

      Yup.

    • David Smith

      The difference being that Israelis are civilized human beings and syrians are muslim psychos.

      • FactsWillOut

        They were psychos under tight control of an iron fist that protected Jews and Christians in Syria until the west decided to oust Assad.

        Kinda like the west helped a coup to oust the Ukraine pres a few years ago.
        Russia is doing more to keep a lid on Islam and jihadists in the ME and elsewhere than NATO is. hell, NATO handed Kosovo to jihadists on a silver platter, as well as Libya and the Ivory Coast, not to mention Iraq. They tried to hand Egypt to the MB, fortunately, the Egyptian army took over.

        • David Smith

          I think that russia is a totalitarian dictatorship and can not be trusted in the short or long run.

          • FactsWillOut

            Well, in Russia, you can distill your own alcohol, carry a gun for self defense, pay zero corporate income tax, ride your ski-do around drunk in the countryside without a license, drink on a small power boat while fishing, smoke in bars, etc, so I think that Canada is considerably more totalitarian than Russia.
            Most of Easter Europe is much freer than the sickened, over-regulated PC craphole the west has morphed into in the last 20 years.

          • luna

            Have you ever even been to Russia, or did you learn everything you need to know from the Dunning–Kruger school of foreign affairs?

          • P_F

            I went to Russia couple of years ago & will agree with FWO on Russians enjoying more real freedom than the citizens of most of the western countries combined.
            However that being siad, I don’t agree with Russian politics.

          • FactsWillOut

            Seems that you automatically equate dictatorship with totalitarianism. Perhaps you should study a little history.

            The fact is, citizens of Rome had more freedom and lower taxes under Caligula than US citizens had under Reagan.

          • DavidinNorthBurnaby

            “Perhaps you should study a little history.”
            Its true that historical ignorance leads many to be unaware of how unobtrusive the state actually was in people’s lives in the past, however authoritarian the actual de jure political structure was.

      • Ho Hum

        Assad is the furthest thing from a Muslim psycho. He is a western trained physician and his family live a completely western lifestyle. After the King of Jordan Assad is probably the most moderate Arab leader in the region. It is a monstrous mistake that the United States, Turkey and the Arab States thought it was in the interest of the world to topple Assad. In the case of the U.S. Hillary Clinton thought it would be in Israel’s best interest if Assad was toppled never mind the resulting civil war which has lead to the creation of ISIS and the deaths of 1,000’s of innocents including religious minorities such as Christians that nobody seems to give a damn about. So much for the “never again” refrain.

        • luna

          The Sunni Arabs want Assad gone.

          • FactsWillOut

            The Sunni Arabs can eat lead.

          • Ho Hum

            That’s right – the Sunni’s want Assad and all his fellow Alawites gone along with Christians, Druze and other religious minorities and for reason’s I cannot fathom NATO countries are assisting this Genocide which has resulted in little Christian boys and girls having their heads chopped off.

          • FactsWillOut

            Yup.

          • I always hear the refrain in the media that Shia “Iraq is the biggest State sponsor of terrorism in the world”. Maybe it’s true, but why then do we rarely ever hear of their acts of terrorism? International terrorism mostly seems to be Sunni sponsored.

            Not an apologist for the brutal Iraq regime or Shia Islam. Just curious about that.

        • k1962

          Ok, but he is still a psycho.

          • Ho Hum

            Any time I have heard Assad speak he has sounded very rational. His family seems very normal also.

            You could claim the Ceasescus were a lovely couple too…

          • k1962

            During his and his dad’s rule, too many people have/had been tortured and murdered. He may appear to be rational and normal, but he can’t be. Now, maybe the horrible things that happened in his country just go along with being an Arab and a Muslim (maybe because he’s a Shiite ruling mostly Sunnis and they need to rule with an iron fist. Sunnis seem crazier than Shiites to me). Anyway, they seem to be able to kill, maim and mutilate without batting an eye. Horrible people, horrible religion, horrible culture and if we were smart we would keep them far away from our peaceful country.

          • Ho Hum

            He has ruled with an iron fist as that is the only way to keep a lid on the sectarian violence. Lets not forget Syria was an ally on the war on terror. The CIA sent terrorist’s on rendition flights to Syria for “enhanced interrogation” not available on American soil.

          • True what you say. But then again the citizenry Assad has to deal with isn’t exactly “Canadian” — they don’t go around opening doors for everybody and incessantly apologizing for everything.

          • k1962

            You know, I think the friendliness of Canadians is exaggerated, at least in Vancouver. However, when visiting my brother in St. Albert Alberta, I did notice the people there were incredibly friendly to strangers. I actually wondered if I had something on my face as everyone was smiling at me in the grocery store 🙂 Whenever I go to the west coast of the States, I also find Americans much more friendly than the people in Vancouver or Toronto.

          • I think it’s changed over the years — I don’t see too much “door opening” anymore. Although “apologies” still seem to abound. Friendliness is a different thing, probably depends on where you are. I once stopped a Bay Street executive-looking young fellow with a briefcase to ask him for directions — he looked at me like I was an alien from outer space with leprosy.

          • k1962

            Yep, was just at the bank and a young (Chinese) Canadian pulled the door opened, but didn’t hold it for me. However, he swung it open enough that I could get through and when he noticed me behind him, he apologized for not holding the door 🙂 He was very sweet and I told him not to worry, it was ok. So, there are still nice people. I guess we just let the bad experiences be front and centre in our minds. Funny about the Bay Street guy. Ridiculous!

    In fairness, not all Russian forces in Syria firing on Israeli aircraft are stupid cunts.

          Shhh! She doesn’t know of the secret crush I’ve been nurturing.

      • El Martyachi

        And I have a bone to pick with you about this “coup”.

        It wasn’t a coup. “The west” doesn’t do coups anymore. Not that they could even if they wanted to, especially there. If I were an egomaniac, I’d sorta feel vindicated if it WERE a coup, because I floated that approach once in an academic setting in the run up to the 2010 Ukrainian presidential election. Needless to say (but I’ll say it anyway) some of the few parties present didn’t take me seriously. But it wasn’t a coup, really. Have you known the Soros types who go to Ukraine to volunteer as election monitors? They’re not coup types. It was a popular uprising, and yes the flames were fanned by the stupid cunt brigade, but it was entirely their fire, not ours.

        • FactsWillOut

          Funded by Soros and the US State Dept., to the tune of, what was it, 5 billion?
          The US elected a professional rabble-rouser, and he places rabble-rousers around the world, with full support of NATO.
          What was it Pogo said?

          • El Martyachi

            The 5 billion is a total aid figure spanning a long period of time. I forget exactly how long, but we’re talking dachas, foreign real estate, etc for the corruptocrats there. The Kremlin weaves a compelling yarn, because they’re really good at that sorta thing, but it’s simply not true.

            I doubt you’ll believe it, but you’ll likely not find a stronger proponent of a pan-Slavic renaissance than me among westerners. That prospect, however narrow it was until Ukrainscapade, is done for decades now.

          • FactsWillOut

            The EU was and is a bigger threat to the Slavs than Russia.

          • El Martyachi

            Well most Slavs don’t see it that way. Long memories.

          • FactsWillOut

            Perhaps they should take a look at Sweden, Germany and France to see how nicely the EU will help their culture.
            Long memories are useless in the face of willfull blindness.

          • El Martyachi

            As you pointed out earlier, Eastern Europe isn’t Western Europe. They generally aren’t huge fans of mass immigration, globalization, postmodernism, post-gender, post-post-everything etc.

            Let’s pretend for a moment that Putin wasn’t an asshole, and that, over time, eurocrats continued to do the carrot-and-stick routine with Eastern European nations wanting to trade. It would be pretty straight forward to offer alternative (Russian) deals at that point. Ya know, kinda like neighborly voluntary trade.. sorta what we had/have with the US. It wasn’t totally (but after Georgia, mostly) unthinkable until the Ukrainian war. But no, they smell blood and are gearing up for WWIII.

          • FactsWillOut

            Given the current state of affairs, we should all be gearing up for WWIII.
            Too bad there aren’t any good guys:

            There is the fa&&otty PC sickened globalist west.
            There is a budding caliphate.
            There is a budding Chinese hegemony.
            There is Russia and a budding Russian Federation.

            Those are the players at the global Empire table, take yer pick.

          • El Martyachi

            Well, you don’t have to pick anyone, but those are the players. The ones who come closest to traditional WASP values are currently the Russians.

            That is why Netanyahu met with Putin, to avoid misunderstandings that may have caused these incidents. The talks, so I hear, were friendly. Israel and Russia do have common interests in the region.
