GOLAN HEIGHTS (6:55 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Israeli Air Force carried out an airstrike over the Golan Heights, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions near the border-town of Hader.

According to a military source in the Golan Heights, the Israeli airstrike targeted Fouj Al-Joulan’s (Golan Regiment) defenses near Hader, killing one soldier and wounding 5 others.

The Israeli Air Force reportedly used an attack drone to strike the Syrian Army in the Al-Quneitra Governorate, which is similar to their previous airstrikes in the Golan Heights.

This Israeli airstrike was done in retaliation for the mortar shell that was fired into the occupied Golan Heights by an unknown party.

Israel holds the Syrian government responsible for every attack on their soil, regardless if they actually carried out the aggression.

I won’t believe it until I see it on CNN. But then again, I don’t believe anything I see on CNN.

Syria needs to use its anti-aircraft to protect itself and must ask Russia if it is going to support Syria or betray it. It is either one or the other.
Little Serbia (much smaller population than Syria) defended itself from 1,000 NATO planes for 78 days and nights and it had no Russian help whatsoever, and no Russians positioned in there with sophisticated anti-aircraft and missile systems and no Russian naval base, which they will defend.
Syria just should go “Hail Mary” with defending itself and trust Russia to do something, since it is there.

This will never happen.
If Russia is involved, US/Israel would reply stronger. To which Russia would have to reply even stronger. Escalation till nuclear war. Quite clear.
Might as well, start with nuclear. Who will lose the patience first, possibly wins.
The future is bright. Very bright! As bright as a tsar-bomb-flash.

There’s a much better way : notice SAA artillery that anyone ding a provocation strike against Israel will respond of it in a military court, inform israeli of this and if Iron Dome detects a strike, giving the coordinate to SAA in order to take measures and if the shell came from a “rebel’ area, to send the coordinates to SAA which will be pleasured to launch an artillery barrage on this point. It may displease the habitual nazis, nevertheless, SAA guys shelling Israel are counterproductive as it’s not their mission and having equipment demolished, shells misused and now casualties… Read more »

Israel,ENOUGH IS ENOUGH,now keep in mind,there is not Assad alone but China and Russia with them to LEVEL YOU FOR EVER.

And have Moscow, St.Petersburg, Shanghai, Beijing and near 300 other cities levelled too? Not really a good bargain, Andy, especially as Israel is a biggest nuclear power than China and with 2 millions israelis being Russans too, very dubious from Putin levelling Israel if they don’t attack Russia first. This world can be happy you weren’t either JFK or Krutchov during the Cuba/Turkey crisis (USA deployed missiles in Turkey first! Moving russian missiles in Cuba was a response to this and they backed up when US accepted to back up those deployed in Turkey! Few know this!). With your mindset… Read more »

Israel is not going to stop supporting their pets in Syria , it is no accident that ”al Joulani” is the chosen pen name of the figurehead of Jabhat al Nusra. From the beginning the concept was , that this group is going to be a proxy army at the frontier , like the Christian militia in South Lebanon was in the 80’s. Of course the crucial thing was not their religion , it was that they were mercenaries of Israel. All their crimes did not stop their demise. I wonder how long the Russians are going to tolerate the… Read more »

americans and israelis are trying to escalate the situation because they realize their proxy armies have lost. I hope the Russians and Chinese step it up with a rapid troop commitment. Neocons only understand force.

A vergonha das vergonhas,aonde estavam as defesas aéreas russas na Síria.Os russos não actuam,a dupla traidora está a cumprir o seu papel,abrir as portas da Síria a todos os terroristas e assassinos.O medo dos russos é muito forte.

s**t, they sucked : generally, they try to avoid any casualty with such kinda strikes, as long as no israeli was killed. The principle is that no shelling against israeli territory will get away without being responded… Now, as it was intercepted by Iron Dome, the computer of the system has located from where it came. Now, did it came as a provocation by some overzeeled SAA guys, unless having access to Iron Dome records, it’s impossible to say, thus, it’s not impossible due to the old Golan Heights dispute and the frustration of the many defeats SAA had attacking… Read more »
