The Israeli Air Force has resumed their airstrikes over west Syria, targeting Brigade 68 Base in Khan Al-Sheih (Rif Dimashq Governorate) and Brigade 90 Base in the Al-Quneitra Governorate after a six hour absence that followed their multiple air raids over the Golan Heights earlier today.

Brigade 68 Base is the new target for the Israeli Air Force; however, the base possesses no immediate threat to Israel, as it is located on the outskirts of Khan Al-Sheih – a contested city that is located in Syria’s Rif Dimashq Governorate.

The Brigade 68 Base has no heavy weaponry that can reach Israel’s borders and the soldiers inside its parameters have been under siege by the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and their allies from Ajnad Al-Sham and Jaysh Al-Islam.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Israeli aircrafts were identified as helicopters that crossed into the Syrian Golan Heights before midnight on Thursday night.

As of now, no casualties have confirmed by Syrian Armed Forces; however, these recent airstrikes are believed to have been more intense that the previous round of attacks launched by the Israeli Air Force.

Reports of the Syrian Air Defense’s responding to the encroaching enemy aircraft have been denied by ground sources.

The “axis of resistance” will surely strike back at any moment, with Assad and Iran rushing to use their planes, helicopter gunships, missiles, etc against someone other than Syrians and Palestinians in Syria…
BTW, Khan el Sheih also houses a Palestinian refugee camp of the same name, which has also been under bombardment by the regime – Assad has a lot in common with Tel Aviv.

Is Brigade 68 perhaps the home base of the Iran-sponsored Palestinian militia the Israels are hunting? And has it been one of the bases that has been beating the Palestinian Camp at Khan Asheeh to death for the last 2-3 years? Interesting thought.

Ruth, you and the people you support have damaged the Syrian armed forces so much that they are barely able to respond. The throat cutters, crucifiers and stoners you have been promoting for years of course have targeted Syria’s air defenses over and over again. Now, when your Israeli allies launch an attack on the Syrian Arab Army in obvious collusion with al Qaeda, you, as usual, have not one single word of criticism for them — or for al Qaeda. But what can I say? Syrian lives mean nothing to you, the Syrian nation means nothing to you, Palestine… Read more »

Pray with me that God severely punish Israel for yet another illegal criminal violation of international law. May He give them a very harsh b**t whipping – so harsh they won’t do this again, the evil devils.
