BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 A.M.) – Earlier tonight, reports from the western countryside of Damascus indicated that the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah were targeted by Israeli airstrikes in the Falita Barrens.

Local activists reported loud explosions coming from the Falita Barrens, claiming Israeli fighter jets were conducting a raid near the border.

However, a source from the Syrian Air Defense notified Al-Masdar News on Thursday morning that the Syrian Arab Army is not present in the Falita Barrens.

The source did add that the Syrian Arab Army is heavily shelling the area and this may caused some confusion.

Syrian opposition activists are now claiming Israeli warplanes struck Hezbollah’s positions in the area.

It is still unknown whether or not Hezbollah was attacked by Israeli airstrikes in western Damascus – Hezbollah’s media wing has not released a statement.

assuming no serious setbacks and the current rate of progression, any guess as to when Syria will be completely free of the infestation?

It all depends on how many rats the US Coalition can breed and train to infest Syria.

And now, al-Qaeda is trying to manipulate members of SAA into i.e. shelling Golan Heights on their own initiative to provoke Israeli reaction.
We have an expression for it : “semer la zizanie” which translates by ‘sow discord’ but discord is an understatement of ‘zizanie’ which comes from the Greek word for poison darnel (lolium temulentum), a toxic plant.
The interesting point is that AQ is an offshoot of Muslim Brotherhood and MB is NO STRANGER to the quarrels between Jews and Arabs in the region while the cohabited in peace for hundreds of years.
Shame on the idiots who buy such bias!

It is situations like this, when the Syrian government’s default response is to lie, obfuscate, etc., that steadily whittles away at their credibility. Especially since it is something that will be easily verifiable, and there can be nothing of value to be gained by the lie, other than trying to BS your base of support. They learned/ honed this approach from the Russians, who also have the same credibility problems. I just do not get the whole “never admit to something not positive, no matter how trivial”. When important stuff comes up, like the chemical attacks, there is no way… Read more »
