BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:55 P.M.) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu commented on Israeli airstrikes against Syrian Arab Army (SAA) military positions in the Syrian-controlled area of the Golan Heights, speaking from Jerusalem on Saturday.

“Last night the IDF attacked Syrian military targets,” stated Netanyahu. “This was a vigorous response to mortar fire at our territory. Our policy is clear: We will not tolerate any spill-over or trickle whatsoever – neither mortars nor rockets, from any front. We will respond strongly to any attack on our territory or our citizens.”

The Israeli leader added that Jerusalem considered Iran’s alleged “attempts to establish itself militarily in Syria as well as its attempts to arm Hezbollah with advanced weaponry, via Syria and Lebanon” with the “utmost gravity”.

The Israeli strikes came after 10 projectiles allegedly landed on Israeli-controlled territory in the Golan Heights. Two people in Quneitra were reportedly killed in the attack, and two Syrian government tanks destroyed.

Clashes between the SAA and militants continue to rage in the Golan, with Syrian army officials accusing Israeli forces of giving cover to anti-government fighters.

Netanyahu….the Middle East’s most warhungry citizen. Perhaps he should acknowledge the years of torture & abuse his own country inflicted on the Yeminite infants and other infant Jews from other Middle Eastern countries who migrated to the stolen lands of Palestine & Golan Heights in 1948.

There was no stolen land of Palestine : 1st, there was never ever in history a state of Palestine! It’s Roman emperor Hadrien that renamed Israel like this to insult Israelis as it was Israelis long term foes’ name romanized, the Philistines and Philistine derivates from the word “Invader”. Note that Philistines were Greeks from Crete that invaded the Gaza strip around King David’s era. They were also an arch foe to Egyptian who called them ‘the people from the sea’. Giant Goliath was a Philistine. The ‘Mandatory Palestine” was territory seized by Brits from Ottoman Empire and was an… Read more »

Actually, without the irrational aggressivity on Israel, there’d be no problem. Israelis are more the scapegoat for any “Arab” problem as the finger is always pointed on them for any dog or cat crushed by a car, meanwhile, the real problems are charged on the ME states that are simply corrupted from the top to the bottom, inducing nefarious levels of poverty. A perfect example is KSA which has 25% of population under the poverty threshold. And, BTW, Lebanese, Syrians, Iraqis, Iranians and Egyptians are even not f*****g Arabs! And, even under Ottoman domination, Israel was nowhere near to be… Read more »

Even in 1948, 1967 or 1973? IMHO, there was surely NO orders from the hierarchy but personal initiatives at the local tactical level. Note that we’re around “Quds day” and Eid with Khamenei and Nasrallah pouring oil on the ashes again and you should remember that Khamenei signs $7000 checks to anyone killing an Israeli. With Damascus having a hard time to pay salaries, well, just look at all the haters here who would surely push the button to nuke the country any day, what you have here are some idiots betting at the Khamenei lottery. This is not very… Read more »
