BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 P.M.) – The Syrian air defenses were activated tonight after several enemy projectiles began targeting the Damascus and Al-Quneitra governorates.

According to a military source, the air defense forces at Mezzeh Airport quickly engaged the enemy projectiles after they were fired from the Golan Heights region.

The source said some of the projectiles were shot down by their air defenses; however, several others were believed to have struck their intended targets in western Syria.

As of now, the Syrian military is blaming Israel for the attack; however, nothing has been confirmed.

It is time for Syria to hit back as the Zionist war criminals are weaker than a spiders web as even relatively unsophisticated Hamas rockets have shown. A few precise missiles on Zionist ELINT station on Occupied Golan with get the message through. Zionists are basically cowards and are afraid to die and will never escalate the conflict into a full scale war as their hovels of Tel-Aviv, Haifa, Ashdod etc will be razed to the ground.

Why bother with an elint station? Rain a thousand missiles on Tel Aviv.

And do not forget the good habit of, as usual, have kids in the rocket launching truck, so when Israel neutralise the launchers, they will kill the kids and Robrt Inlakesh will write a good propaganda article, accusing IDF of war crimes while…
Deliberately shooting artillery on non military targets is a war crime and using human shields is a war crime too…

+++ “It is time for Syria to hit back” => It’s Syria who started warring on Israel and always refused any peace treaty over 71 years. +++”as the Zionist war criminals” => How funny : since they record everything, all complaint at the ICC end dismissed because there is no war-crime, just the usual #PALLYWOOD forgery +++”are weaker than a spiders web as even relatively unsophisticated Hamas rockets have shown” => 2 or 3 rockets on 600 managing to score a few casualties, reclaiming the lives of 4 civilians from a community too close from the Hamastan’s pseudo-border for letting… Read more »

IRGC and Hezbollah are seasoned terrorists, so Israel bombs terrorists. I must admit they should give up containment and switch to extermination.

Might be a false flag by IRGC or Hezbollah to divert attention from Iran.

Hihi, I was mocking the false flag comments about the bombing of the ships in the UAE: none of both attacks were false flag 😉 The only cockroaches nests around are in Doha, Ankara and Tehran. The 4th is not in the region, I’m no sure if the nest is in Karachi or Islamabad… Maybe will they fire on Tel-Aviv tonight, during the Eurovision Contest. BTW, I hate Eurovision, music sux, but I will watch just to pi$$ off BDS and well, maybe some idiot will dare poking Israel there, especially if it’s Hamas : if it happens, IMHO, the… Read more »
