Israeli Sources Say Iran’s Missile Strike in Syria Was A Flop

1

Iran’s much-vaunted missile strike on Islamic State targets in Syria late Sunday was a flop, with six of the seven medium-range missiles it fired failing to hit their target, Israeli sources said Monday.

Sources quoted in Hebrew media on Monday evening said three of what they said were the seven ballistic missiles didn’t even make it as far as Syria, falling to earth in Iraq, and only one of the seven landed in its intended target, an Islamic State base in Syria’s mostly IS-held Deir Ezzor province. Another of the seven landed hundreds of yards away, in the city of Mayadin.

“If the Iranians were trying to show their capabilities and to signal to Israel and to the Americans that these missiles are operational, the result was rather different,” Channel 2 analyst Ehud Yaari said. It was “a flop,” said Ya’ari. “A failure.” Still, he added dryly, “it photographed well.” Read more here.

  1. You got it all wrong; Iran arranged for almost all of their missiles to miss their targets, and by a long shot, to mislead Israel into thinking a pre-emptive attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities would, likely, be achievable, with little risk to the IDF, or Israelis in general. This way, when they counter attack, and ‘finally, annihilate the Israelis’, they’ll be able to say, “Look, it was all in self defense”. Yes, even a rogue nation, like Iran, would prefer looking good, whenever possible. Don’t take the bait, wait just a little longer – the Final Geula is just a few steps away.
