BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:35 A.M.) – The Israeli Air Force carried out a number of airstrikes over the Mezzeh Airbase in west Damascus tonight, destroying an ammunition depot while causing a series of explosions around this military installation.

According to Israeli media reports, the fighter jet that carried out this mission was an F-35; this is the first time that these Israelis have used this aircraft against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

Video footage of the Israeli airstrikes was captured by an Al-Masdar field correspondent that was approximately 500 meters from the Mezzeh Airbase when the attack occurred.

The death toll from the Israeli airstrikes tonight is still unknown; however, a senior officer from the Syrian Arab Army told Al-Masdar News that it is not expected to be very high because there was not a large presence of soldiers near the ammunition depot.

Neither Syria or Israel should be “wiped off the map”. If Hezbollah wasn’t anti-Israel we wouldn’t have this problem.

Hezbollah has nothing to do with it. Israel bombed Syria because it is part of the US/NATO coalition that still wants to topple Assad and Israel doesn’t want to give the Golen Heights back to Syria.

Do you really want a nuclear war? Because it’s what will happen if you try to do it! They’re at the same level as France on this matter and they have submarines and silos to launch these too, not only airplanes with cruise missile! The only solution is PEACE! Both Jordan and Egypt have a peace treaty where they really committed themselves in and have no problem with Israel, actually, it’s even the contrary, Israelis help them unless fringes of their population still are very into wanting to destroy their neighbour. Ahmedinijad nearly led Iran in a war against Israel.… Read more »

It’s already too late https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_strike https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samson_Option The only abomination would be the result of your genocidal projects. “Politics is the choice between the bad and the worse.”-Otto von Bismarck You should meditate it : all the options you suggest are always the worse : blowing a non-nucleat 38 kilotons device in a Saoudi harbour with just 73k inhabitants, destroying a country with 8.5M ppl which moreover is the 4th world nuclear power with 5 (very soon 6) nuclear armed submarines. Well, if their arsenal may not, as the US or Russian ones, be able to obliterate the planet at once,… Read more »

Syria always refused to sign a peace treaty with Israel. Legally speaking, they’re still at war, thus, both are entitled to strike military targets, thus, it was a Hezbollah arms depot that was struck. It could be interesting to see the UN reaction while the founding act of HB, although they were still known as “Organisation of Islamic Jihad” at the time, was… Killing 301 UN Blue Helmets in 2 minutes using two truck-VBIEDs with massive explosives amounts (9.5t and 2.5t). For sure the UN will help!

Instead, Putin mused, the US should take note of Israel’s approach towards terrorism.
“Look at Israel’s example. Israel never steps back but always fights to the end, and this is how it survives. There is no alternative. We need to fight. If we keep retreating, we will always lose.”

According to intelligence sources, it was a storage of Fateh-110 missiles that were in transit from Iran to Hezbollah and up to be moved into Lebanon… There is no official confirmation on the Israeli side thus, targetting missiles transfers to HB in Lebanon is typical as they perfectly know that HB will attack them with these. HB having the destruction of their country in their charter, if they were about to transfer these missiles in Lebanon, this strike makes sense as usually, they let HB operating into Syria as long as they don’t intend such transfer. The use of F-35… Read more »
