BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 A.M.) – The Russian Federation retrieved and returned the body of an Israeli soldier that was killed during the Lebanese Civil War.

According to Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), the remains of Sgt. Maj. Zachary Baumel was returned to Israel after his death 37 years ago.

The remains of Sgt. Maj. Zachary Baumel, who was killed in the battle of Sultan Yaqub in eastern Lebanon some 37 years ago.

The Israeli soldier was killed during the fierce battle for Sultan Yaqoub, which ended in the Israeli Defense Forces’ retreat and an imperative victory for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

Following the IDF’s defeat at Sultan Yaqoub, Baumel and two other Israeli soldiers were later paraded through central Damascus on top of a captured IDF tank.

Due to the fact that Syria and Israel have no diplomatic relations, the Russian Federation stepped in to mediate the recovery of the IDF soldier.

Nobody forced Arab at attacking them for 99 years now (pogroms started in 1920)

Nobody forced them to assassinate hundreds of brits along with tens of thousands of Palestinians living in Jerusalem before their artifical “return” , either.

Also the funny bit about not being able to prove they are even related to the Hebrews much less the fact they spit on following any of the religion that obviously says they rejected God and were punished for it. Usurpers like the Saudi shemalam

Yeah, attacked by the Arabs…like the ’67 preemptive strike by Israel? You know, when they claimed that Egypt was supposedly going to attack Israel, but weren’t. Like the way they’ve attacked Iran numerous times while Iran has never attacked them? What was Israel doing being involved in the Lebanese ‘civil war’? Oh, yeah, instigating it.

in the Yum Kippur war that Israel was this close to completely loose if it wasn’t for America’s USAF’s operation Nikel Grass, the biggest military airlift of its history at the time came to its rescue while Golda was (literally) crying on the phone pleading Kissinger for help (Nixon was out of the game obviously, sleeping under heavy medication before deciding to resign following the Watergate scandal), despite the tremendous advantage that state-of-the-art hardware and weapons that America gave the IDF, the overall kill ratio was between 1:2,5 to 1:3. Figures acknowledged by both parties to this day. Again you… Read more »

So is sniping unarmed people from stand-off distances like the cowardly war criminals they are. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyLzRv_kNXU

You’re probably gonna claim that CNN is fake news pro-Pal media right ?

Or making jokes about shooting unarmed teenagers around with assault rifles and live ammo : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ey48uTfIeww

What about mass murder of an impoverished enclave ? https://www.theguardian.com/world/2010/sep/23/un-panel-israel-war-crimes

The Guardian, another pro-Hamas outlet along with the UN, probably.
