Israel probably used Spike missiles during an attack on Syrian military facilities

On 12 July, the Israel Defense Forces have attacked Syrian military positions after an unmanned drone entered its airspace near the occupied Golan Heights. It is reported that as a result of the attack, at least 7 people were killed and about 10 more were injured, including Iranian military advisers.

Syrian state media said the Israeli attacks on the southern province inflicted material damage but had caused no deaths or injuries and have released some photos footage showed firing results.

In some photos, can clearly see the remnants of the Spike NLOS’s straight wings that pop out after the launch.

The unveiled imagery indicates the remnants of the straight wings of the Israeli Spike missile system. Israel probably used Spike NLOS multi-purpose precision guided missiles during an attack on Syrian military facilities.

The Spike NLOS is a non-line of sight missile with a dual-mode electro-optic/infrared (EO/IR) camera seeker developed by the Rafael. With an effective range of between 25 and 30 km, it weighs 71kg in its canister and the real-time data link enables the operator to guide the weapon, confirm target identity and abort if necessary.

It can be launched from the ground or from helicopters.

The Israeli military also has released black-and-white surveillance footage showed how missiles attack the Syrian military facilities.
