From the DEBKAfile this interesting item:
"Syrian rebels destroy Assad’s anti-Israel radar"
"26 Nov. In a resounding blow to Bashar Assad’s
army’s combat capabilities against external enemies, Syrian rebels destroyed his
key electronic warning radar station facing Israel – M-1 – Monday, Nov. 26,
DEBKAfile reports exclusively. This has blinded the two eyes which Syrian air,
air defense and missile forces had trained on Israel and crippled, though not
completely dismantled, their ability to go to war against Israel, Jordan or
Saudi Arabia. Hizballah has lost its primary source of intelligence for an
offensive against Israel."
Those Syrian rebels in opposition to Assad attacking and destroying a radar installation in all likelihood a military target of MINOR consideration to the rebels but of MAJOR importance to the Israeli.
Some will suggest that this is an indication of a certain quid pro quo as existing between the Syrian rebels and Israel. Aid and comfort forthcoming from the Israeli to the rebels with the understanding that "if we help you at some point you can help us!" This is so?
This M-1 radar site. Any devoted readers to the blog have substantive info on what sort of radar this is? Early Warning [EW] of Soviet/Russian manufacture presumably but what exact version M-1 is not entirely clear.
