Until now over 6 S-200 launches were noted
This is a high scale engagement and it won’t end before several hours.
And it might escalate.

From the start of the Syrian war until now, this was the biggest activity for the Syrian Air Defense Forces, some say in total over 25 missiles were launched from the Syrian side.
I expect an Israeli retaliation by surface to surface missile attack.

   Apperently Israely plains attempted to strike T4 base, which is far from Israeli borders. This may explain why AA missiles parts were found in Jordan, there was also plains in Lebanon skies that were targeted by AA. Also, some posters noted that bombload on F-16 was not usual - long range missiles/cruise missiles.

Seems like #Israel used a IAE Harop loitering munition (the "kamikaze drone") to target an Iranian commend trailer near T-4 airport in #Syria's Homs province.

Just a small update:

 

The F-16 that was downed yesterday (10/02/2018 in normal date format DD/MM/YYYY) was at a very high altitude along with his squadron, as they were firing missiles at the T4 airbase from a very long range, which required them to fly high. Their high altitude exposed them to AA fire, and as soon as the missiles were launched, the airplanes dived and commenced standard evasive maneuvers. The downed F-16 apparently remained at high altitude and could not maneuver on time. The main assumption right now is that they were preoccupied (pilot and navigator) with making sure the missiles hit their targets. It's also being checked if they even received a missile warning.
