BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:55 A.M.) – On Wednesday evening, the Israeli Air Force carried out a new attack against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the Golan Heights, destroying a suspected weapons warehouse in Ba’ath City.

According to locals in Khan ‘Arnabeh, an Israeli chopper traveling from the Al-Nada area of the occupied Golan Heights was responsible for carrying out the missile attack against the Syrian Arab Army.

A military source told Al-Masdar News that no casualties were reported by the Syrian Arab Army, despite the large presence of soldiers in the area.

The military source added that the warehouse in Al-Ba’ath City was completely empty when the Israeli Air Force attacked it on Wednesday night.

 

Israel reportedly carried out this attack in response to a tank shell landing in the occupied territories; however, the Syrian Arab Army has denied firing any shells towards these lands.

People should look up the Gleiwitz incident, a false flag attack by Nazi forces posing as Polish troops on German radio station, 31 August 1939. Inmates dressed in Polish uniforms were shot at the site and their bodies were left to falsely implicate Poland and provide a pretext for invasion.

Israel is apparently replicating the Gleiwitz incident as a pretext for invading Syria

IMHO not comparable to Gleiwitz. More like the USS Maine/Havana incident (coal bunker explosion), the official reason to the US attack on the Spanish colonies, the Gulf of Tonkin Incident or like the Bush attack on Iraq under the pretexts – there had been an attack, serious provocations or arms of mass destruction. p.s. IMHO It has been discussed before. I suspect that the terrorists provoke Israeli attacks on the SAA. While DaeshbagSx insists that Israel knows exactly from where the attacks are staged. Whatever: Between civilized countries You would send a diplomatic complaint or a bill for the damages… Read more »

Israel supplies arms across the Golan to ISIS. This was a staged provocation with Israel’s complicity. Israel has every intention of crossing the border in force and is creating a fake pretext…

It is entirely like Gleiwitz. Either you’re entirely naive & therefore not worth listening to, or an apologist for Israel

Israel has received no provocation so it will have to invent one the same way it attacks Palestinians on the pretext that Hamas has lobbed missiles into Israeli held areas so it can justify killing many more Palestinians.This is despite the fact that Hamas has been hunting down and handing over independent liberation activities. If Israel has it’s way wee will yet see another Beirut again with no Arafat to organize resistance.

Do you know who ousted PLO from Lebanon? Hafez al-Assad! He sent PLO with Hezbollah support! It’s Arafat who launched the Lebanese civil war, trying to take over the country in 1975! Israeli entered Lebanon much later after PLO seized south Lebanon and began to shell daily into Israel. Just before moving to Lebanon in 1971, from 1970 to 1971, Arafat tried to seize power in Jordan and kill King Hussein several times! Hussein expelled PLO manu-militari! Hussein shelled and bombed Palestinian camps for weeks, killing 25,000. To give you an idea, 25k is around the third of the total… Read more »

If Palestine is adopted by locals as a banner to oppose the plantationist mass migration into their land by foreigners it is their right to declare Palestine as their national identity. Many national identities derive from the land they reside in. No one can deny them that, whether it be Netanyahu or Assad or Arafat.

& Stop insulting! Gleiwitz? The Polish used death lists to line up ethnic Germans to shoot them, send on round about marches killing chiefly the old and the children and so on. The killings started only 4 days after the Gleiwitz incident. Over long or short the Germans would have found out… which would have been pretext enough. The Polish did the same after WW II. My grandmother was marched away in winter – her son found her the next spring, hit on the head and left to die in the snow. Obviously You are an American or Polish apologist… Read more »

I remember reading about that some years ago and again in 2016 with a lot more detail. Pretty horrific, can’t remember the name of the self identified thugs though. One estimate put the figure over a quarter of a million but others have said it was many more because the thugs enlisted more monsters. If I find the article I’ll publish the link.

Susan. Do not bother. The majority of German war deaths was not in the war but in 1945 and the three years after. It is public knowledge. Look e.g. into public sources about Allied food policy in occupied Germany – and hunger related deaths. These action or in-actions are only justified by some mentally, politically and judicially inconsistent phantasies about punishing a nation for a political groupings or individual crimes. The idea is not consistent with Western ethic and judicial values. Which have been cast in UN resolutions since 1945. But some people are still indoctrinated by the propaganda of… Read more »

Can You prove that Israel supplies? If Israel wants to go into Syria nobody can prevent it except perhaps Russia. BTW. Creating a false pretexts is an Anglo war custom taken over by Hitler.

Why would the terrorists need to provoke attacks from Israel when they are working hand in glove with each other against SAA since 2015?

The third of Israeli Jews are Russians and Bibi HATED Obama, are you nuts? Just 3 reasons made they didn’t went directly after IS and Qaeda : – Obama ended signing the biggest military help check ever to avoid AFAIK supporting Trump. – They considered it may push even more terrorists to move to Syria only to fight them and it’d make the matters even worse in the end. Eshell, their air-marshall wanted to launch the operation and Putin found the idea great, they’d have had Moscow green light without problem. The big Obama check had also the purpose not… Read more »

Exactly Susan. But I suspect that Israel holds the SAA responsible for shots fired over into their area. This view would also cover the opinion of DaeshbagSX, the resident specialist on military matters. Israel knows who is shooting and attacks the Assad government as legally responsible, even if the terrorist are guilty.

Nope Simon : It is just the standard procedure when someone shells into Israeli territory! As it’s the standard procedure in Coran to test the kuffar defences on regular basis and if these seem to weaken, then attack, that’s why Israelis respond to any provocation. Iron Dome perfectly detects from where the shoot comes. IMHO, they sent a chopper as they weren’t sure if it wasn’t some false flag by shithadists trying to push Israel to attack SAA or if it came from some too zealous SAA soldier. If you really knew about how the middle east works instead of… Read more »

Where are those new surface to surface missiles Fox was going on about. That seems like the correct response here.

Forgive my ignorance since I do not watch Fox, but has Russia or Iran supplied such missiles to Hezbollah? I tend to blitz through my mail so might have missed this report. Thanks.

Russia doesn’t support HB, Iran does.
Russia and Israel are really really friendly, actually, 2 millions of Israelis are also Russians, the Hi-Tech boom in Israel is mostly due to them!

Oh I remember that Israel took in two million Russian Jews and the question everyone was asking was how they couldn’t manage to accommodate 24,000 Palestinians in a land they had called home for 1600 years.

Palestinians and Israeli lack the political will to make peace. The Muslims make only truce with non believers. And the Israeli know this. Old enemies. Half of the Israeli Jewish population are decedents of immigrants from Muslim countries. p.s. It would take a generation of reeducation for both sides. IMHO. And no sides wants to lose face.

Israel is friend to no-one – only ever serves it’s own purposes denouncing real Jews who oppose their apartheid regime. They murdered the crew of the USS Liberty and the only reason was to hide their illegal activities. Russia is selling Arms and Military equipment, beyond that the friendship is all about Russia getting out from under the illegal sanctions imposed by the asset stripping neocons of the EU. Any nation who would have the rogue state of Israel as a friend better be wearing more than just kevlar.

=> Israel is friend to no-one => Yes. Jews remember that they were persecuted by all. So they persecute also. p.s. And for Palestinians being a refugee is a way of live. International NGO care for the basics as long as they do not integrate into the Arabic societies were they live now.

The last time, several air cargos landed on Damasculs intl., you could even follow the cargos on Flightradar, LOL. Israelis blew the warehouse they were stored in. 6 ppl injured. There was an attempt with a convoy before, it was intercepted 10km from Lebanon’s border. No casualties. Just before this, a warehouse was blown at night, not sure if it was a missile depot but, as I follow what happens for… Read more »

“tank shell landing in the occupied territories” => If you mean Golan Heights, as the only legitimate border treaty being in force, as Arabs simply refused to sign any other, is the 1922 San Remo one, Golan Heights belong to Israel, so does West-Bank and Gaza. Like it or not, it’s the international law! GH were occupied by Syria from 1948 to 1967, they are not Syrian territory, even if they are reclaimed. Daddy Assad was very near to sign a peace treaty with Rabin an may had regained control but now, I doubt it’ll never happen, especially since Israeli… Read more »

No. Israel’s borders are defined by UN General Assembly Resolution 181 of 1947 plus the conquests in the first Arab-Israel war. The demographic changes of this war were drastic. Around 700,000 Palestinian Arabs were ethnically cleansed from Israel. They became Palestinian refugees. The 1948 borders gave the Druze area of the Golan to Syria. BTW the Druze republic, the first part of Syria to oppose the French occupation, joined Syria. p.s. The 1922 San Remo conference attended by the four Principal Allied Powers of World War I was a meeting of colonialists. The people living in the area had no… Read more »
