Russian and Israeli Aircraft Narrowly Avoid Duel Over Syrian Coast

A French website claims six Russian Sukhoi SU-30 SM fighter jets and four Israeli F-16s narrowly avoided engaging in an air duel off the Syrian coast.

(Six hours later, the report has yet to be verified by other news organizations – but since no air battle occurred, some may not deem it worthy of mention.)

The Russian aircraft, en route to Cyprus from the Syrian Hmimim airbase, entered the flight path of the Israeli jets.  The Israelis avoided provoking the Russians and diverted at high speed toward Lebanon, according to the report.  The encounter prompted the Israelis to protest. The Russians responded by demanding an explanation why the Israeli Air Force is conducting flights off the Syrian coast.

“The incident was ignored by the major news agencies,” the French website reports.


Russia has expanded operations in Syria and has been offered a military base in Iraq by the government in Baghdad, to help fight ISIS – which unlike Obama, Putin is actually doing…  Chinese fighters, never before seen in the Middle East, are also landing in Syria from a Chinese aircraft carrier.  As Obama retreats, Iran, Russia, and China are moving into the power vaccum in the Middle East.

What are the odds Russia and Israel could end up at war over such an incident near Syria?  Was Russia TRYING to provoke an event? Many people think Russia is the end times nation of Gog and Magog which will attack Israel and be destroyed in the “Ezekiel War” of Ezekiel 38.  We have never been closer to seeing so much end times prophecy fulfilled…

    Where exactly were these Israeli planes? Relative to the territorial waters/airspace of Syria. And they ran “toward Lebanon?”

    Lebanon needs some air defense weapons.

    Israelis getting caught someplace they have no legitimate business, and then running away, SHOULD be reported widely, but you know why it isn’t.
