BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:20 A.M.) – The Israeli military launched a powerful assault on southern Syria last night, hitting a number of sites along the Quneitra-Daraa axis.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Israeli military unleashed a heavy barrage of missiles that targeted the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions in and around the town of Tal Al-Harrah in the Dara’a Governorate.

The source said the Syrian Army intercepted some of the missiles, but that the remaining managed to hit their intended targets in southern Syria.

Last night’s attack by the Israeli military is likely a retaliatory strike for the projectile that was fired into the occupied Golan Heights last week.

Even though the Syrian military denied firing any projectiles towards Mount Hermon (Jabal Sheikh), Israel holds them responsible for anything that targets their security.

The Israelis have not provided any proof of such Syrian attack on the occupied Golan Heights. Some jihadis probably fired off those rockets in the direction of the Golan Heights as they have been doing over the years as they know the Israelis never miss an opportunity to attack the Syrians when that last is making military gains against the rebels and foreign jihadis. The so-called “response” by the IDF was way disproportionate to the pathetic alleged Syrian attack on what is, in any case, considered Syrian territory by most nations and the UN. The Israelis’ shallow excuse was all… Read more »

because Putin knows that SAA are unable to confront Israel…like all arab armies are full of incompetents, unprofessional movements, bad qualified personal and commanders,,even if they get all modern weapons..we have seen what happened twice with Pantsir system parked in the Mid of runways and turned off while Israel was attacking…

Actually, 4 Pantsirs were demolished, and 2 were turned off since they ran out of ammos after uselessly expanding these on decoys or cheapo loitering ammos like SkyStriker… Pantsir only has 12 missiles ranging 20km, they don’t have the time to reload before getting a strike, it’s as simple as this : Pantsir is NOT Iron Dome with 80 missiles ranging 70km on 4 launchers of 20, added with support vehicles able to reload a launcher very fastly. Moreover, Pantsir missiles are guided from the ground to reduce costs… All you need to do is to saturate the guiding frequency… Read more »

The Pantsirs are there for defense. If the Israelis have to expend munitions on overwhelming the Pantsirs and in the end only pull away with a few demolished Pantsirs and no high-profile targets, what was the purpose of the strike? The Syrians are only going to get better at defending and the Russians are only going to get more impatient with the Israelis. I’d say Syria is doing a fine job. Every victory comes with its sacrifice. Just ask the Vietcong.

Pantsir is NOT Iron Dome with 80 missiles ranging 70km on 4 launchers of 20, added with support vehicles able to reload a launcher very fastly ==> 1 – check you grammar, “very fastly” means nothing, you either say “very fast”, or “rapidly”. Douchebag, I can see you again right here, your signature is everywhere, how’s the kosher Croque Monsieur ? 2 – The Iron Dome’s characteristics makes them bulkier, costlier, quasi-fixed and much more visible to offensive EW systems of the enemy. You seem to forget that in the event of a full-blown conflict, Iran,Hezbollah and Syria would all… Read more »

No. Because Putin co-ordinates the aggressions with Nethanyahu while pretending yo be on Syria’s side. Who gives the intelligence to the Zio/Nazis if not the Zio/Nazi Putin himself who supports the Zionist tyranny’s annexation of the Syrian Golan.

+++ “The Israelis have not provided any proof of such Syrian attack on the occupied Golan Heights” >>> They don’t need to. And BTW, News Desk is wrong, it’s not related to this and they don’t retaliates if the rocket crashes into Syria. IDF has more than enough warned IRGC to pull out from the area, these are trying to build up permanent bases. Won’t happen. +++ “Some jihadis probably fired off those rockets in the direction of the Golan Heights as they have been doing over the years as they know the Israelis never miss an opportunity to attack… Read more »

ISRAEL ILLEGAL AND AGGRESSIVE ACTIONS MUST BE MET WITH ALL MIGHT OF SYRIA’S ARMED FORCES AT ALL FRONTS!!!

Don’t bark, please. SAA has ZERO means to confront Tsahal and already has a hard time in Idlib. If they do what you say, Erdogan will invade ALL Syria since Tsahal would demolish SAA… Actually, Israeli actions are legal, but I agree on aggressive, although still not enough since there is still IRGC presence close to their border. Remember : deploying an enemy armed force at a border is a casus belli, see Hague Convention about it : Iran has threatened many times to destroy the state of Israel and is leading a 3+ decades proxy war on them, and,… Read more »

Wow. Not only are you wrong on Israel’s actions being legal, but you also clearly are on the side of Trump who seems to think that the Golan Heights is Israeli territory. And there is no Israeli “border”. They are occupying Palestine and Syria illegally and always have been. The IRGC is legally allowed to be in Syria as per the laws of sovereignty. Should Syria be allowed to strike Israel because they have a US presence there, in your view? Finally, I’ve lost count how many times the Israelis have threatened the destruction of every country surrounding them and… Read more »

@BDS,

al-Nabka 2.0 is actually a French-Israeli national named “DaeshbagSux” participating in a zionist troll farm operating on this site for months if not more than a year I think. He has recently changed his nickname to avoid triggering too much attention and reaction to his many propaganda and hate posts. His name has changed, but not his mediocrity, would it be in form, grammar and content.

Syria still has the option of levelling Tel Aviv to the ground the day they decide to do it. They havevthe missiles, they have the means. The price has not yet become worth it, but onevday it will be, and iron domecwill not stop 10 000 missiles raining down on Haifa, Tel Aviv and other shitty little Zionist nests.
