BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 A.M.) – The Syrian Air Defense has downed three Israeli missiles over the strategic Dumayr Airbase in eastern Damascus, Al-Mayadeen News reported tonight.

According to a field source in Damascus, the targeted Dumayr Airport is allegedly filled with Russian military personnel that recently held reconciliation talks with the rebel forces in the area.

No one appears to be harmed, as no missiles landed on the Dumayr Military Airport.

Al-Masdar has reached out to a Syrian military source at the Dumayr Airport to confirm.

Throw the Israelis out from their Russian Embassies, strike any airfields their attacks are launched from, cancel any visas they have and get rid of any duel-citizens.

No, don’t strike inside Israel. That’s what they want. Putin must give Syria the s400 system so they can protect themselves from this continued aggression.
Anything less makes Putin look like he’s afraid of Israel.

But if the Russians were in the base as alleged, why didn’t they use the S-400s ?.

I have a feeling that the Israelis are trying to test the S-400s.

Russia currently has 2 Nos of S-400 Missile System in Western Syria in Khemeimim Air base & another 2 at Tartus Naval base.

James : LOL, 600k Israelis are Russians. Best source of transfer of technology for Russia. D’ya think none of them is in SVR or GRU?
Getting rid of dual citizens would be the stupidest decision in Putin’s career!

If Israelis have shot at a base filled with Russians, their future operations against Hezbo or IRGC in Syria will be highly compromised.
It was a terrible mistake doing this.
I have very poor opinion of Netanyahu, mostly due to his terrible choice to build a coalition with far-right but doing this is the stupidest decision he ever took, period!

This needs to go mainstream news. VIRAL. The US and evil allies will have a hard time convincing the US and evil allies to target Syria and Russia when Israel is striking.

According to ‘Hal’ Turner: 2 missiles managed to hit Dumayr AB near the ammo depots north east of Damascus where Russia has a presence.

This is breaking and no, I do not know if t fact or fiction:

“Syrian military sources denied to @dpa earlier reports of an missile attack targeting Shayrat Airbase in Homs province. The sources told @dpa that Syrian air defences were activated early Tuesday, but that it turned out to be a false alarm “

It is time that Russia retaliated and taught Israel a lesson. Israel are racist bullies and it is time that the world powers and UN placed tough sanctions on them.

To me it looks like Netenyahu is seriously negotiating with Mohamed Bin Salman for something big and wants to show his solidarity & support. This could be part of that. Neither Syria or Hezbollah nor Iran have attacked Israel no have any plans of attacking Israel, their hands are full fighting the internal rebels in Idlib, Rastan and the smaller pockets of ISIS running in and around Alleppo. As of now there is no direct threat to Israel from any 3 of these. So what is this attack all about? What threat would Al Dumayr Air Base be to Israel?… Read more »
