ISIS Calls For Backup: Israel Attacks Syrian Army Positions Near Damascus

Israel bombs Syrian army positions on the eve of peace talks in Geneva

War by any means

War by any means
By Rudy Panko | Russia Insider | February 22, 2017

Syria peace talks are expected to begin this week in Geneva. And what are the Israelis doing? Bombing Syrian Arab Army positions near the Lebanese border.

Because as we all know, the Israelis are really good at these “ceasefire” things. Especially when they have no business interfering in any way in a conflict:

Minutes ago, an Israeli warplane conducted an airstrike over the western countryside of Damascus, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions in the Qalamoun Mountains near the Lebanese border.

A Syrian Army source told Al-Masdar this morning that the Israeli warplane had crossed into Syria after flying over Lebanon’s ‘Arsal Barrens, where both Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State (ISIS) are headquartered in the eastern Beqa’a Governorate. The Syrian Army source added that the specific location of the attack was in the Jard Nalhleh area of the Qalamoun Mountains.

Oh, isn’t that interesting? The Israelis flew over ISIS and al-Qaeda positions — but saved their bombs for the Syrians. Quite telling.

There were no reported casualties.

If Israel admits that it did indeed bomb a sovereign state unprovoked (which is unlikely to happen), it will probably claim that it was targeting “terrorists” such Hezbollah. The problem is that Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has made it clear that Russia thinks Hezbollah has played an important role in defeating ISIS in Syria.

A bit of a diplomatic pickle for the Israelis, no?

Israel doesn’t want to return Syrian land that it stole, so it needs the war in Syria to continue. These airstrikes aren’t too surprising.

  1. Didn’t the Russians give the Syrians a bunch of missile systems. It seems that someone should man them and start taking out the Joo’s planes and send them straight to hell.

    • Things must be getting really serious in Israel, when they join the fight,(instead of getting the USA to fight its wars) desperately trying to keep the war going, after Russia’s air force put an end to ISIS/ISIL/DAESH/?? What can we expect next? Israeli ‘s Army actually fighting, and being sent back to Israel in bodybags?

      • Brian,
        “What can we expect next?”… A tough question, but it’s reasonable to predict what NOT to expect: any criticism of Israeli bombing by President Donald Trump – and that should scare the hell out of anyone concerned about military escalation in the Syria and the Middle East. It might be beneficial to remember that the largest anti-war protests in history, against the Iraq War, millions all around the Earth – before the war even started – wasn’t successful in preventing Bush/Blair/Cheney and company from creating a literal hell on Earth. The level of organization by peace activists necessary to stop what’s coming is massive.

        • I Agree……I just can’t understand how the Military Industrial Complex can keep getting away with scaring Americans and everyone else with “Terrorists” committing “Terrorist” acts, when THEY are the World’s worst Terrorists….
