BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:40 A.M.) – Minutes ago, the Israeli Air Force struck a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) ammunition depot inside the Mezzeh Airbase in rural Damascus.

According to an Al-Masdar field correspondent near the Mezzeh Airbase, the Israeli warplanes specifically targeted this ammunition depot, causing a massive explosion that could be heard from Syria’s capital city.

The death toll from the Israeli airstrikes is still unknown at the moment, the field correspondent added.

The Israeli airstrikes against the Syrian Arab Army comes just two hours after the suicide bombing that took place inside the Kafr Sousa area of Damascus.

Yep. And at 38 billion a year from the US, Israel can kill as many people as it wants since it has the best weapons. Sick.

Iranian cargo moved missiles to Damascus airport in order Hezbollah moving these into Lebanon.
@Dawn : it was 38bln$ to be given over 10 years, not per year!
This strike killed nobody. They have the lowest record of collateral damages of any army. The Hezbollah manifesto vows to genocide the Jews and they try to get the gear to do so…
Sincerely, Dawn, if someone was trying to kill you and you could prevent him to get a weapon allowing him to do so, will you prevent him or would you wait to be shot at like in some wild west movie?

“Lowest record of collateral damage” Is patently false. Westerners refer to the Hezbollah Manifesto as if they could read and understand it. They want their land back and they will need to fight for it.
How do you know what was targeted by-the-way?

Why is there no response from ant air missiles? Why is Russia not defending it’s ally by scrambling jets? It’s almost like they are afraid to engage a well armed air force in fear that their systems will be exposed as not good enough.

all “christians” now worship the jew. it’s a testament, no pun intended, to the cunning of the jew and the gullibility of the “christian”.

but, not to worry. the chinese, who suffer no such delusion, will soon solve the jewish problem of israel.

That’s why Chinese build the IAI Lavi under license under the Chengdu J-10 name? (Israel renounced to build the Lavi : too expensive to do locally, they bought F-16 instead), l**o! The region ain’t their turf, they don’t give a f**k about it! Moreover, Israel’s a biggest nuclear power than them.
And BTW, if there was gullibility, it was the “Anglicans” that sucked big league by decolonising the Arabian peninsula and moreover giving this sick tribesmen instead of building secular democracies. Anytime the Brits or muricans mess with world politics, it sucks. They should let it to adults.

More likely, the russians dont want to spoil the good israelo-russian relations because of one or two airstrikes a month

Israeli was supporting Georgia in the war against South Ossetia. I don’t see what good relations Russia has with Israel. What good is it doing Russia?
I wish Syria would engage its air defense to shoot down incoming missiles at least. It wouldn’t be the same as shooting down a plane and killing a pilot. I thought Syria had great air defense but it seems to have weaker air defenses than Serbia had against NATO in 1999.

@Jojo :
Strangely, Israel was involved in… providing military intelligence to Russia in the run-up to war and cut all military help to Georgian govt although previously, they trained the army and delivered weaponry…

They’re more concerned about keeping Israel happy than Syria? They don’t even need to scramble jets to shoot down the aggressor, they can scramble to let him know they see him and will shoot if provoked. That would be enough for the offending jet to turn around.

It was G2G missiles, not jets

For Israel to strike Damascus there is no need for jet incursion of Syrian airspace. Intercept of the munitions has a very high failure probability even by the most sophisticated air defence.
Israeli planes operating within Israeli airspace are capable of lobbing smart munitions of relatively small caliber on a near ballistic trajectory, the munitions using onboard multispectral image recognition for terminal guidance.
Should Syria and/or Russia engage Israeli planes in Israeli airspace?
WW3 has begun.
I personally wish the SAA a swift victory in all it’s endeavors.

Israel knows that if Russia shoots their planes down America will have the excuse it needs to intervene even though they were in the wrong but it’s bound to happen sooner or later.

They don’t want to provoke world war 3. Israel controls all the mechanisms of world opinion but it is now pissing off a lot of Zionists like me.They need to be punished.

Yes that’s exactly correct ..Syrian regime and its master Russia can only bomb cilolian targets inside Syria ..not a well armed air force

robertguttierez : Russia doesn’t protect Islamists, even Shias. Hezbollah are Islamists. They might be allies to Assad, Russia doesn’t befriend terrorist groups. Have you seen them doing ANY air support to HB even a single time? BTW, if HB is definitively useful in Syria, it may not be both the Syrian and Lebanese governments’ interests to let HB becoming too powerful by stockpiling advanced weaponry and definitively not the Israeli one.

Obviously you are uninformed about the relationship between Obama and Netanyahu. Obama is a Muslim, Netanyahu is a Jew. Obama has hated Netanyahu and Israel from the beginning. There would be no collusion between the two.

Kmeggison.

Obama is born of a Muslim father and a Christian mother, he was bought up as a Christian and attends the Christian Church. I would suspect that Obama dislikes Netanyahu because like many jews he is likely a racist , particularly toward blacks, Even tough Obama is a half caste .

Comprobado, Israel hace tiempo suministra armas a Al-qaeda, también atiende a terroristas heridos, ya invadió altos de Golan pero la ONU no tiene poder ya que el dueño del mundo es EE.UU. y nuestros gobernantes simplemente son muñecos. Ahora Israel quiere establecer las buenas relaciones con Turquía y vemos que Erdogan y sus secuaces ya invadió Siria, bien en el fondo ambos quieren tumbarse a Assad y como dicen la credibilidad de Rusia se va cayendo.

Again it is confirmed that Israel is an active part of the chaos that plagues Middle East. This is an undeclared war of aggression, the worst war-crime, according to the Nueremberg principles.

Legally, due to Syrian refusal of ANY peace treaty, both are still in a state of war thus, there is no undeclared war.
The Nuremberg trial has no principles, only Geneva and Hague conventions value.

Warning : Delivering weapons from Iran to Hezbollah via Syria can be bad for your health.

Just stick to what you do best, slaughtering each other, gassing children to death, destroying your own country, dropping thermobaric bombs in the middle of residential areas, razing entire neighborhoods, throwing explosive barrels from helicopter at the houses, raping women, torturing prisoners and killing thousands of innocent civilians randomly with the help of Russia and Iran…. You have had thousands of years of pracrice.
