BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 A.M.) – The commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ (IRGC) Quds Force, Major General Qassem Soleimani, allegedly visited southwestern Syria recently, triggering the latest wave of Israeli airstrikes, Kuwait-based Al-Jarida reported on Tuesday.

“Soleimani’s visit to a location less than 40 km from the ceasefire in the Golan Heights violated a previous American-Russian-Israeli agreement” regarding the alleged Iranian presence in the country, the report said.

Al-Jarida claimed that Soleimani made a secret two-hour-long visit last Friday to an area near the occupied Golan Heights.

Two days after Soleimani’s visit to southwest Syria, the Israeli Air Force unleashed two separate attacks on the Damascus countryside.

The Quds Force commander allegedly said the only way to stop Israeli attacks was to fire three missiles in the occupied Golan Heights for every enemy projectile.

Furthermore, Soleimani called on the Syrian military to intercept every Israeli warplane that enters their airspace.

Al-Jarida claims that Soleimani stressed the need to respond to the air raid, as it would lead to the failure of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the forthcoming elections.

Warmonger Jews 🐕 Nethanyahoo 🔗 Aggression in Syria ⚔️ Iraq ⚔️ Palestine ⚔️ jews 📣 Evacuate ☢️ Palestine ⚔️

Actually, Israel NEVER started a single war… Arab-Palestine is the Kingdom of Jordan, so it’d make sense for Arabs to evacuate Jewish-Palestine AKA Israel and be happy not having Israel reclaiming all the lands the Rothschilds’ dilapidated their fortune at buying since they also bought Arab-Palestine too! Actually, the UK sold it twice, 1st to the Rothschilds then to the Hashemites after these had lost Syria, Iraq and Hijaz (former Mecca kingdom). Actually, it’s Syria that constantly aggressed Israel since 1948. Since they’ve been beaten every time SAA attacked, they switched to arming/funding/backing a Lebanese terrorist group which later became… Read more »

One wonders if the IDF was trying their luck to blow Soleimani to bits with a blizzard of missiles?!

Soleimani recommandations need Syria having thrice the Israeli economy which even Iran hasn’t and also having access to more advanced technology which none of both have.

“Soleimani stressed the need to respond to the air raid, as it would lead to the failure of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the forthcoming elections.”
=> ROFL! Qassem is used to the dictatorship he lives in. War makes you re-elected in democracies, it’s a rule of thumb!

One may note that Qassem ended with serious failures in the last years : from being the de-facto ruler of Iraq under al-Maliki, now Yanks are back.
The common partition plan with Erdogan, with North-Syria going to Turkey and South to Iran is nor really on a good way too…

To Hezbollah fanboys : it’s Soleimani who ordered the murder of your historic military commander Badreddine since Badreddine opposed the use of the monster Soleimani created, namely ISIS, in Syria…
