BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:55 A.M.) – The Israeli regime has threatened to destroy Syria’s air defense systems if they choose to retaliate against their warplanes again.

“The next time the Syrians use their air defense systems against our planes we will destroy them without the slightest hesitation,” Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman told Israeli Public Radio on Sunday.

Lieberman’s comments came just 36 hours after his air force bombed the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the western outskirts of Palmyra (Tadmur).

Israel claimed they were targeting Hezbollah; however, the site they attacked belonged to the Syrian Arab Army and had no presence of the Lebanese organization.

In response to Israel’s aggression, the Syrian Air Defense fired an S-200 anti-aircraft missile towards the four planes that illegally crossed into Syrian airspace.

According to the Syrian Ministry of Defense, the anti-aircraft missile struck an Israeli warplane near the Al-Bureij area, causing it to crash before returning to its destination.

I think the best way to stop Israeli criminal activities inside Syria is to shoot down several Israeli F16s. If they think tough actions can solve all problems, treat them tough!

does the Syrian army not also have s-300’s as well cause. downing a few Israel would deal a heavy blow. The to replace them would enormous and not even the US would be willing to just hand over 20 or 35 jets. If they use ground forces then I hope that I will die the Nuclear fires of WW3

I think the lesson to Syria is clear: stop funneling missiles to Hezbollah! That’s a major cause for this war! They threaten Israel’s very existence daily, it’s completely understandable that Israel will do everything they can to undermine this network. Syria has tried to destroy Israel twice in wars, Hezbollah has also instigated two wars with Israel and yet every commenter here thinks that Israel is entirely unjustified in their actions of self defence, that their aggressors are just. They’re so desperate to survive, just look what they’ve had to do in these past 6 years, to lessen the existential… Read more »

“I think the lesson to Syria is clear: stop funneling missiles to Hezbollah!” => I really ask myself if ME leaders have ever put their noses in UN charter, international laws, etc etc! Such actions by Iran, Syria and Lebanon are called a ‘casus belli’; literally : a case of war! Israel, under international law, has absolutely the right to launch a full scale war against these countries. And they really seem to not understand that Israel is no pussy : they just could send these 3 countries to the stone age! “That’s a major cause for this war!” =>… Read more »

Oh, do you mean the UN that finally openly declared Israel a racist apartheid state in flagrant violation of international law?

As for Israel supposedly supporting an Assad-run Syria:

Brother, Are You sure the IDF hit what You claim and taught Syria a clear lesson? DEBKA is a Israeli publication and says something else. Moscow gave a polite warning to Israel. Moscow asks Israel to explain air strike on Syrian base used by Russians DEBKA March 18, 2017, 9:59 AM (IDT) Israeli Ambassador Cary Koren was summoned to the Russian Foreign Ministry Friday for clarifications on Israel’s air strikes over Syria that night.

Need we remind you that is was the Israelites who butchered the tribes in the jordan valley on their way to the Holyland leaving few to no survivors. Who ransacked towns in Egypt on their way out. Seriously they looted those towns for the supplies for their journey. Then at the battle of Jericho where all the animals women children were killed and city leveled. Why did they let a prostitute live? Why did the Israelites jericho continue to threaten the other cannites people and cites with genocide. If they did not leave. The Romans raised the Jewish temple because… Read more »

More history. The old Jews mixed with the Canaanites, Hittites etc.. Only their priests wrote other things into the bible. Reminds me of Fascist pure blood theory. No idea where Hitler copied. Blink. Until the Roman’s drove them off the regional mongrels called Jews had the land. In the diaspora discrimination many were bankers. To flee discrimination and persecution they wanted to return home. The Zionist’s bankers floated the bonds that won the Entente the WW I. Many of the bonds were sold in the US. US president Wilson wanted new markets and extend the Monroe doctrine and the Roosevelt… Read more »

No matter You do not attack an neighbor that is desperately fighting IS.

67 was a preemptive strike of Israel after being threatened. AFAIR.

While Israel has the right to exist she cannot behave like a woodcutter.

What do you prefer? Peace and prosperity through good neighbourhood relations or to have your ass kicked again and your country going back to the stone age this time as, if they get mad at your favourite group, as we all have fucking enough of the ME shit, we let Israel hammer you all down and, BTW, we will even help them. If you love your family, your country and even your life more than you hate Israel, there’s only way to go while, the other possibility? An advise to you : take a good life insurgence
