Air Force gunships in Syria are being jammed by ‘adversaries’ rendering blind and unable to help under-siege troops, special ops general says

Daily Mail

American warplanes are being jammed as they fly missions over Syria, preventing them from telling friend from foe on the battlefield.

General Raymond Thomas, head of U.S. Special Operations Command, said unspecified ‘adversaries’ were ramping up cyber attacks in the region.

He said the Air Force AC-130 gunship was ‘aggressively’ targeted, which could force it to abort missions and leave ground forces exposed.  

‘Right now in Syria, we’re in the most aggressive electronic warfare environment on the planet from our adversaries,’ he said.

‘They’re testing us every day, knocking our communications down, disabling our AC-130s, etc.’

General Thomas made the candid remarks in his keynote address to a U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Foundation symposium on Tuesday.

He did not mention who was responsible for the jamming, but military commentators believed he was almost certainly referring to Russia.

AC-130s are frequently used as air support for U.S. special forces and American-backed rebel fighters fighting in Syria.

    Well fellows, who invited you to fly over Syria. What the hell are you doing there? By the way, if this upsets you that you can’t supply the headchoppers with guns, ammo ect, wait until the Syrians start using the 300,s on your sorry butts. They are a sovereign state with an elected govt who has to protect the country. I really feel sorry for you young fools who will die for the bankers.

    I think a lot of Americans are going to soon be sacrificed to get WW3 started. If you’re in the military, this would be a good time to go AWOL.

    There was another case a long time ago where American signals were jammed and American servicemen were left to be sacrificial lambs for an attack to be blamed on another country and then it turned out that attack and the jamming of the signals were from an “ally”. My memory is a little hazy, who was that again?
