A missile from the Israeli David's Sling air-defense system that was fired to intercept rockets from Syria has been obtained by Russian forces


A missile from the Israeli David's Sling air-defense system that was fired to intercept rockets from Syria has been obtained by Russian forces, the Chinese Sina news site reported last week.

According to the report, the incident took place in June 2018, when the David's Sling system was triggered after identifying launches from Syria – fired during internal clashes near the border.


The Israeli army said two interceptors were fired at the rockets, which fell on Syrian soil, causing no damage. Its statement didn't note whether a hit was confirmed, but the Sina report claimed one of the Israeli missiles intercepted its target. The second missed its mark due to a technical error, and crashed in Syria without exploding.

Assad Regime forces then rushed to the site, said the report, collected it and delivered it to Moscow. The Israeli army has yet to issue a response on the matter.

This was the first time the Israeli army reported an operational launch of the system, which acts as the median layer in the country's air defense deployment, nestled between the Iron Dome and the Arrow 3 system.

The system provides a response to various threats such as drones as well as missiles. In cases where the target is missed, the intercepting missiles have a self-destruct mechanism. However, according to the report, it appears this feature malfunctioned, leaving the missile intact for the Syrians to retrieve it.

Farcebook censors this site by denying postings from 12160 because it is not "secure" while they have massive data breaches that are "not their fault". It's all about the money with those fascist punks. There are no "breaches" over there. When they get caught selling us out they say it is a "breach". The "tribe" always lies!

It's good when enemy technology falls into the right hands. I know the Russians will reverse engineer this terrorist weapon and make it easier for the Syrians and other victims of Nazi israeli crimes to strike back.
