        Ben-Gurion Israel International Airport is one of the largest in the Middle East. In August, 2017 of the year accepted and launched the 15 362 flight (on average, a flight every 3 minutes), serving more than 2,5 millions of passengers. An ophthalmologist is a coward, but not stupid. He is well aware that they will make with him the countries whose citizens will suffer (and there will be a lot of those) dare him on such an adventure.

            Not contempt, but respectful. Those who worked with him at the Tishrin military hospital, and then at the ophthalmological center of the Western Eye Hospital at St. Mary’s Hospital in London, spoke of him as an ophthalmologist very positively.

      bully With what fright ?? An ancient, albeit a working rocket with an NOT SEPARABLE warhead. There is no particular problem for the existing anti-aircraft defense in Israel.

        Here are the experts on the downing of the skads and explained everything to us. Since when are there missile defense systems with an 100% probability of interception? To provide the entire border perimeter with equipment and l / s with round-the-clock duty, too, as I understand it, nothing? Yes, and missiles are sold in bundles at the store for a penny.
        The presence of any weapon carries risks for the other side. That's just Syria is not up to military provocations, unlike a certain neighbor.

          For the gifted, but not able to use the search engine - Israel, the Patriots worked quite successfully on Iraqi counterparts. What would have happened if they could have gotten out of the warheads that separated after the dispersal. And why, find it yourself.

    Yes, as far back as 85 in Bradis, I considered the Corps of Guardians of the Islamic Revolution and the Turkish Field Army for the SKADs,
    - and now allies.
    - Putin forced everyone to fight against organizations banned in Russia.

    Fake. Assad is not so stupid that, in this situation, also go to a direct confrontation with Israel. God forbid, he should deal with his problems, with the opposition ... And a blow to the airfield, especially against such a thing - this is suicide for him now.

      hi
      You're right. Now for Assad, the main headache is Turkey. The Turks are insolent in the region. They perceived the agreement to "pinch" the pro-American Kurds as permissiveness on Syrian soil and had already undertaken a campaign against Aleppo. True, having received from the teeth of CAA, rolled back, but there is no guarantee that tomorrow they will not do something like that somewhere else. IMHO, it is for this reason that Assad is taking reserves to the forefront.

    Not terrorists, but militias and civilians. Then in Syria ISIS did not smell.

    In general, the timing of the Scud demonstration is interesting against the backdrop of threats by an ophthalmologist to strike at an international airport in Tel Aviv.

    PS
    Not really in the subject, but ...
    Israeli Red Sky 2 system intercepts two UAVs at the funeral of the King of Thailand
    The Israeli state defense concern "Aviation Industry" (TAA, IAI) said on Tuesday, January 30, that its system of protection against UAVs Rad Sky 2 was first tested in real conditions in October 2017 in Thailand.

    According to the report, the system covered the funeral of King Rama IX of Thailand, in which officials from 42 countries, the royal family of Thailand and about 250 thousands of people participated.

    During the procession, the system recorded and prevented two attempts to use drones in the terrain it covers.

    The light mobile Rad Sky 2 system, covering an area with a radius of 3 to 5 kilometers, is able to recognize and eliminate suspicious unmanned aerial vehicles.

    The system was purchased by the Thai Air Force a week before the king’s funeral in preparation for the ceremony.

    The Kalkalist newspaper reports that after successful testing at the funeral, the Thai Air Force re-used Red Sky 2 in November 2017 of the Pattaya International Navy Parade.

    It didn’t smell to you. For the CIA, this project to overthrow the legitimate authorities in Syria was already being implemented, and as always got out of control. So do not mislead people.

    Have you written anything intelligible on the topic of the article ?. NOTHING!!!.
    Assad was only accused of cowardice.
    What is the basis of these accusations - your opponent wrote it right for you, and you left the answer with your verbiage.
