Israel Bombs Missiles Shipment in Syria

UPDATE: The target of the strike in Syria by the Israeli Air Force was a shipment of advanced Iranian surface-to-surface missiles which had been on their way to the Hezbollah, The New York Times reported.
A U.S. source said that the Fateh 110 missiles were being stored at the Damascus airport, the location of the strike.


Israel has carried out an air strike targeting a shipment of missiles in Syria bound for Hezbollah in Lebanon, Reuters reported today. The target of Friday's raid was apparently a building inside Syria that was hit by Israeli “standoff” bombs. These are bombs that can coast dozens of kilometers across ground to their targets once fired from the airplane, allowing Israel not to enter the Syrian airspace.

Lebanese authorities reported unusual intensive Israeli air force activity over their territory on Thursday and Friday.

“We believe that it (Israeli overflights) is linked to Israel's concerns over the transfer of weapons, particularly chemical weapons, from Syria to its allies Lebanon,” said a Lebanese official. (Reuters, 4 May)

The Syrian Free Army said there were three strikes by Israeli F-16 jets that damaged a convoy carrying anti-aircraft missiles heading to the Hezbollah along the Damascus-Beirut military road.

Just as this article states - Laser Guided Bombs together with a technique called Toss/Loft bombing.

So claimed Israel.

Now one has to recognise the modus operandi for the future.

Claim of Massacre and its reflection by their sponsored Media, thus immunise themselves from a reaction / public opinion backlash or better yet, safeguard a silence... Then Bomb its targets and claim something in accordance.

So, no massacre took place, it was simply a public relation stunt to prepare a bombardment by Israel.

What they really bombed is not clear, but certainly was no missile transfers.

What is the Mighty Axis of Resistance (aka Mullah Republic, Assad Hereditary Republic, and Nasrallah's Islamist Terrorist Gang) going to do about this "Zionist aggression"? They're going to huff and puff and then....nothing, nada, zilch, zero :-)

Correction: the Zionists carried out the massacres themselves, as they have been doing so for the past 40+ years that Hafez Assad, his sons, nephews, cousins, in-laws, etc have been running that regime and making it looking like the Baathists are the ones doing the killing.

Fars by fortune, Iranian by Grace of Allah, and Londoner by Virtue of Lax Immigration Laws.

Tony Cartalucci says of course airstrikes inside Syria go beyond "posturing," and indicate perhaps a level of desperation in the West who appear to have elected their chief villain, Israel, to incrementally "intervene" just as they had planned in regards to attacking Iran.

This, in fact, reveals the true nature of the attacks, a result of the U.S., Saudi, and Israeli proxies failing inside of Syria and the desperate need to carryout military intervention to save them, while leaving intact whatever remaining legitimacy and plausible deniability the U.S. holds globally, and Saudi Arabia holds across the Muslim World.

What poorly a desperation!

They killed that dog Imad Mughniyah, and what has Hezbollah done? Is Assad gonna get the Golan Heights back? It is safe and secure in Zionist hands, and Assad cannot do a thing about it....except for huffing and puffing. Now, pour yourself a nice drink (if your "holy" religion allows that) and try cooling off :-)

"liar by nature or by training?" Both. Lying comes so naturally to followers of that animal Khomeini.

what Tony Cartalucci has to say is slightly less important than the words of the average French poodle.

Zionist scum are destroying Syria anyway and it has nothing to lose by retaliating against Zionist hovels in Occupied Palestine and Golan. This US/Zionist war against Syria is headed for a major escalation. Stay tuned.
