BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:20 A.M.) – The Israeli Air Force launched a heavy attack on the Damascus countryside last night, hitting a number of sites located south and west of the capital city.

During the attack last night, the Israeli Air Force managed to score a number of hits on the Syrian military’s positions; this would cause several explosions that could be heard throughout the capital.

As shown in the video below, the Israeli Air Force hit what looks like a weapons warehouse in the Damascus countryside.

While the Syrian military’s air defenses were able to intercept many of the projectiles, the Israeli Air Force was ultimately able to destroy their intended targets in Damascus.

We consider President Putin as a Hero in front of US, UK, France etc. But in front of Israel, Putin is a BIG Zero. He can do NOTHING to IsraHell aggression.

+++ “Putin as a Hero in front of US, UK, France etc” => Let me laugh, Russia is even in partnership with NATO ??? Why do you think Putin or Lavrov say “our partners” when speaking about our countries? https://tinyurl.com/y6nmonob +++ “But in front of Israel, Putin is a BIG Zero. He can do NOTHING to IsraHell aggression” => Why would he? Russia has very good relations with Israel, even better than many may think. If Israel target IRGC or Hezbollah, these can only blame such actions on THEMSELVES. Putin has even warned Iranians that their attitude toward Israel was… Read more »

This is an undeclared, illegal war against Syria. The pretense of ‘thwarting Iranian drone attacks’ is ridiculous. Iran hasn’t attacked Israel even once. Rather, the Israeli government is angered at their allies’ (jihadists’) losses. Well, and there isn’t much more for Netanzbhu to do than lash out at Iran.

Dave : you should definitively : 1. Read the Hague Convention 2. Put your nose into history books Syria already declared war on Israel and the status hasn’t changed since 1948. Iran attacks Israel for decades and all over the world. IRGC and Hezbollah attacked Israeli or Jews in about 56 countries. e.g. on Feb 13, 2012 : – A motorcyclist attached a sticky bomb to the car of the wife of the Israeli defence attache to India while she was on her way to pick up her children from school. In July 2012, the Times of India reported that… Read more »

You have no idea what the h**l your talking about!! You are either ignorant, or just plain stupid!!! Just by continuously saying for years upon years, your only goal is to see Israel wiped off the face of the map/earth, that in itself is disgusting and horrible and basically a verbal threat attack, that NEVER ends!! Also, ‘stupid’, they sponsor more terrorism than you can ever imagine, attacks that have taken place in Israel, and killed countless innocent people!! Let’s not forget th repeated chants of “Death to America”, while at the same time having actually paintings of American cities… Read more »

They didn’t attacked SAA. They never attack SAA unless SAA shoots at them first.
IRGC and Hezbollah were packing drones in preparation of a swarm attack on Israel.
In virtue of UNSC Res.1559 and Res.1701 which bans transfers of weapons to Hezbollah, IDF “intercepted” the transfer.

Because it’s there. Because they want to. Because they can.

Is there an election coming up in Israel? Some vote in the Knesset that might go against Natanyahu? Is he in political trouble again over some minor embarrassment that can be drowned out by yet another threat-averted triumph? It always pays to look at Israeli domestic politics. In this case I don’t see anything there to account for this attack. So it’s down to “Because”.
