BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 A.M.) – Over the weekend, Russian officials condemned the Israeli attacks on Syria that have become a weekly event.

Leading the condemnation was the spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, who said these Israeli attacks were a violation of international law and a deterrent to the Syrian peace settlement.

Following Zakharova’s condemnation, the Russian Ambassador to the United Nations Sergei Rybakhov said in a statement that Israel’s security is of the utmost importance to the Russian Federation; however, they must halt their strikes because they are illegal.

Literally hours after Rybakhov’s comments, the Israeli military attacked the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions at the border, resulting in the destruction of two garrisons and the Quneitra Hospital.

While it is still not clear why the Israeli military attacked the two Syrian Army garrisons, the Quneitra Hospital was turned into a base by Jabhat Al-Nusra during the war and it was believed to have a network of tunnels.

Despite the low intensity of the attack, Israel has demonstrated time-and-time again that they can attack the Syrian military at will, regardless of Russia’s approval.

Oh, you know, if US say stuff that is not good for them, it’s the same! Yankees need Israel much more than the contrary, and so does Russia! Now guess why Russians are not happy? Well, they advertised Pantsir as unbeatable while IDF already demolished at least 3 Pantsirs, including Pantsir-S2, the newest one. Now they fear IDF will also demolish S-300 which moreover are said being the latest upgrade and on par with S-400 except for the shorter range… It’d be a veeeery bad advertising, Russians don’t want the French to again become the #2 arms seller over them,… Read more »

Unfortunately, talk is a sign of weakness to Israelis. After Hezbollah imposed a hefty price onto Israel for their 2006 invasion of Lebanon, they haven’t been back. Draw your own conclusions as to what makes Israel listen…or at least gets their attention.
