Shortly after an Israeli drone temporarily breached Syrian airspace, Israeli jets – likely utilizing the drone’s reconnaissance information – carried out a number of airstrikes on areas controlled by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in Quneitra province.

One airstrike was observed at the Jandal Castle, a military fortification located atop the mountain of Jabal al-Shiekh. Another Israeli airstrike struck the Artillery Base near the village of Ayn Burj.

If one is to believe preliminary reports, neither airstrike caused any casualties among the ranks of the Syrian Arab Army which hints at the initial air raid serving primarily to deter potential SAA aggression.

According to Israel, three artillery shells were launched into Israeli-held territory by SAA forces stationed at Ayn Burj earlier today.

Minutes ago, a second Israeli air raid also struck SAA artillery points between the villages of Sasa and Deir Makir, equally in the Golan Heights. It is not immediately clear if the second wave of airstrikes caused any casualties to government troops.

According to a source close to Al-Masdar News, the Israeli jets fired from across the Tabariyah Lake which is located on the Israeli side of the Golan Heights. In turn, SAA anti-aircraft units were unable to respond.

Not really : Just consider that these so-called strikes are always made as an answer to shelling against Israel’s territory AND israelis took GREAT care to not make a single casualty… If you knew aircrafts, it’d be clear for you that it’s much harder to do a strike without casualties than having reduced a full batallion into ashes : just put 6*2000lbs thermobarics under 1 or 2 F-15 and you may not find a single survivor on the artillery base… Now, just see how all the haters react : IAF would have killed 200 SAA soldiers, it’d be exactly the… Read more »

What a threat! They’re even not the richest country of the region : several are MUCH richer. The problem in the ME is not Israel. Even without them there’s be no peace. Why? Because of people like YOU! You’re simply unable to take account of your own failure thus always accusing others about ’em!

‘Surgical strike because we’re that moral’, ever heard of a place called ‘Gaza’?

Islam is ashamed of, outraged by, and engaged in combat with Islamist terrorism.

As an American, I wish I could say the same for our Christians. Their Christianist terrorists have left us a long trail of corpses here at home.

Last ditch effort by the Zionists to save their Takfiri Investment Group.

They won’t be getting cheap oil from (primarily ISIS Takfiris) anymore. Nor will their new “buffer zone” in Syria on the Syrian-Israeli border created by the Takfiris remain.

They need to get over it. Assad in going to win.

Because the daeshbags have already SAA, SyAAF, VKS and coalition kicking their butts all day long… They don’t want to add the most powerful army in the mid-east fall on them too… Just consider 343 F-16s and 58 F-15 with less than 10 minutes to fly to them… If Israel decides on a full scale high intensity operation, we can consider that no less than 7200 tons of bomb a day is feasible only by IAF… Nagazaki every other day…

An air-force that strikes without doing any casualties is useless… Except if it’s to send a message like “stop shelling my country or else…”

I think the best air-defence in the region is David’s Sling+Iron Dome+Iron Beam (lasers!)… Russian S-400 complex is very good too but only protects russian bases.
There are no more soviets since 1991, unfortunately : capitalists had to do much more concessions when they were fearing western Europe may become commie… Now their folly is unleashed so richs are richer and poors are poorer…

Why cannot cover troops? 1. It’s useless to cover them as israelis won’t strike for real as long they had no casualties during the shelling against their land. 2. Down an aircraft and then you’ll have real strikes and well, you can be sure they’ll hit really hard 3. Unless serious upgrade (seekers, thrus vectoring, kinetic ‘shotgun’ warhead), S-200 is old soviet stuff. It can’t compete modern jamming. 4. Dassault Rafale can fly just over a modernized S-300 radar without even be noticed. Can’t say about S-400 but radars are likely to be the same.. Israeli company Rafael cook their… Read more »

Israel will be wiped out of the map soon. Too much provocations, too much insolence, blood, wars, It will only take one conventional bomb dropped at DIMONA to convert that s**t hole into a pile of radioactive ashes.
