BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:15 A.M.) – At approximately 5:00 A.M. (local time), a source from the Syrian military said a couple of rockets were fired from the Mount Hermon (Jabal Sheikh) region of Lebanon towards the western countryside of Damascus.

According to the source, the attack was believed to have been launched by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), as they share a part of Mount Hermon.

The source added that the Syrian military quickly activated their air defenses as soon as the rockets were fired into southwestern Syria.

Since the attack, the Israeli media has reported that the Israeli Defense Forces intercepted rockets fired from Syria into the occupied Golan Heights.

Al-Masdar is awaiting a response about these claims.

More details to come…

Por ello hay necesidad urgente de acabar con el terrorismo en Siria, para luego enfrentar a Israel.
Israel aprovecha cobardamente ya que el ejercito Sirio está ocupado en conflicto con los terroristas como Al-qaeda y otros grupos financiados por Turquía.


Nope, it’s only Iranian stooges who shot rockets into Israel to probe defenses, as stated in Coran. They’re looking for weaknesses and loopholes in order to genocide the Jews like Muhammad slaughtered the Quraysh tribe. Israel should stop mowing the lawn, instead they should retaliate directly in Iran and hit where it really hurts.
