BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 A.M.) – The Israeli Air Force bombed a Syrian military installation in the western countryside of the Damascus Governorate this evening.

According to a source from the Syrian military, the Israeli Air Force bombed a weapons depot inside the town of Qatana, causing significant damage to the site.

The source said that at least three soldiers were wounded as a result of the attack, but no one was killed.

He would add that most of the Israeli missiles were shot down by the Syrian air defense forces before they could reach the weapons depot in Qatana.

The Israeli jets had reportedly entered Lebanese airspace before attacking their targets in Qatana.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) alleged that a Syrian missile was fired into their territory, prompting them to activate their air defenses.

Below is a video of the Syrian air defense shooting down an enemy missile in western Damascus:

Russia playing “political football” with Syria when it comes to Israel – sadly. Russia could demand NO MORE attacks on Syria – BUT DOES NOT. Sadly, Russia has also used Syria to get in bed with Turkey – instead of NOT HAVING ALLOWED Turkey to done all it has illegtaqlly done in Syrai.

The would not use S-300 for such a small target…..they would use missiles from Pansir vehicle and S-200 instead.

Israel has the right to protect itself from it’s enemies. Israel can still strike anywhere in Syria despite their S300 and S400 missles systems.

I somehow doubt that. only sporadic and non-optimal attacks like this one will still occur for some time until the internal situation is stabilized enough for the SAA to be able to respond in a kind, which the hasty US withdrawal is sure to accelerate big time. They tried several other strafes and all of the ordnance was take out in flight a few weeks ago. This attack will also have the advantage of further worsening their relation with Russia as well, which is absolutely fine with me. In that sense, FYI, the S-300s to be transferred to Syrian control… Read more »

The IAF is laughing their asses off at Russian air defense as they bomb Syria again and again without any fear whatsoever

Well for their own sake I truly hope they aren’t mate ! Since if they really did, that would make them deluded on top of being fools. Laughing off such catastrophic moral and political timing doubled with a technical mission failure, that’s what it would be. Not a single strike was successful, the vast majority of the 20 Delilahs or so were intercepted in mid-flight by Pantsyr-M2s. Never seen before kind of interception videos show more than 8 missiles fired in a row by a SINGLE Pantsyr-S2 battery, and you can hear 2-3 of them splashing in the background shortly… Read more »

@Gryz, Israeli politicians are just dumb to pick on Syria while the Jiahdi attack. This can have grave consequences.

I mean, attacking nothing less than the capital on no other day than Xmas being highly publicized and celebrated with great fanfare for the first time in years without jihadi threats all around mortaring the h**l out anything living. I call sheer stupidity and madness. How d**n dumb could they be ? the only message that the Arab world and specially the average Syrian will received is more or less this : “We, Israelis, basically hate every god d**n piece of what you Syrians are as a whole, no matter the day, the moment, the place, the gender, religion, ideology… Read more »

@Tall cool one, or better: Short warm moresome; Yes, Israel has the right of defense – but not on Syrian soil.

Syria did not attack Israel but Israel attacked Syria.

p.s. Just face it – IDF are the aggressor’s army.

BTW. In WWI – You US morons slandered imperial Germany & Austria for preempting an Entente invasion by a declaration war and a strike as soon as the Axis forces were ready – and now You are telling us Europeans that Israel and the US can rape any country’s borders during peace time.

Go fourth and multiply = 4ck off.

Right to “defend themselves” by bombing another sovereign country. Sure, that makes sense, if you’re barking dog nuts like NutYahoo.

People need a psychiatrics advice to make any sense of zionists like you.maybe the satanic Talmud should be shown to people worldwide to help explain the mental mindset of satanic scumbags in occupied Palestine that believe that garbage.Jesus’Christ was absolutely correct when he declared that you were of The Synagogue of Satan.
