(The downing of the invading F-16) was not a mere outstanding military encounter. It has soon evolved into what military and political analysts viewed as a “phenomenon” manifesting all elements of the war of terror waged on and in Syria.
The issue has versatile aspects to look upon: The downing of the Zionist F-16 tells about the key transformations undergone by the Syrian National performance in terms of the advance degree of national self-confidence it has gained and is still gaining. Such an outstanding self-confidence was acquired as a result of a host of factors and manifestations that culminated in this positive development.
At this specific moment of the war of aggression against Syria, the enemy forces are totally exposed and their ill-intention are laid totally bare. Equally so are the alignments of these enemies forces and their flocking together to accomplish both the military and political “missions” of aggression against Syria.
The true colors of the United States have been fully exposed, especially in terms of its symbiotic relation with the Zionist entity, besides its symbiotic relation with all other terrorist entities regardless of their names, shapes, postures or positioning on the Syrian geography.
The downing of the Israeli warplane has many significant aspects. This plane is a joint US-Israeli manufacture representing the cut-edge technological advance of their joint work. Analysts and observers describe the F-16 as the crown jewel of the joint US-Israeli state of the art technology. It is the pride of their alleged “air supremacy” and the presumed “protective shield” of the Israeli army.
Of other corollaries, it tells about the outstanding methodology of the Syrian military performance and demonstrates the characteristics and traits through which this performance has evolved on the military, political and social levels.
The Israeli entity, its western supporters and even some scientists in the Arab world have cherished the false illusion that the hour of direct military intervention in Syria has come.
They have been waiting inpatiently to subvert the glorious successes being achieved by the Syrian Arab Army allover the Syrian territories.
By that time, the terrorists were collapsing and were facing ultimate defeat in each and every battle across the Syrian geography. Surely and steadily, the Syrian national homeland was marching confidently to restore each and every inch of the land in as much as it was regaining sovereignty and dignity.
Hence came the hysteric frenzy of Syria’s enemies. The army’s successes have driven them mad. The United States went from the covet into the overt.
By flagrantly attacking the Syrian popular and regular forces, especially in the northern flank of the country, extending from the Tanf area in the South up to the al-Qaem area in the North, the US has been showing its true colors and getting overtly involved in the on-going acts of aggression against Syria.
Parallel to this, the vicious scheme of Turkey’s Erdogan has been fully exposed. Their on-going aggression on Efrin/Afrin and other Syrian areas in northern Syria leave no doubts about their ill-intentions.
Synchronously, the forces of aggression have managed to create some artificial “Kurdish militias” that have unfortunately been totally misled and been lured into the deviated path of treason.
By fully aligning themselves with the hostile US policies, this deviated strata of “Kurds” have fully lost their compass and committed the grand national treason.
Hence, the Zionist entity found it conducive to take off its mask and reveal its clandestine role in this war of aggression by showing its symbiotic relationship with the terrorist organizations.
At this moment, Israel is trying to send the terrorist forces a message of “support” and is trying to tell them that it might even be prepared to engage in this military battle directly in their favor, using thereby the most lethal and most sophisticated weapons.
Hence came the latest act of aggression and hence was the significance of the National Syrian response. In as much as this response was a deterrence, it was an outcome of the evolving Syrian performance and posture on all regional and international landscapes.
