Israel is Trying to Legitimize Airstrikes on Syria

By Firas Samuri | Inside Syria Media Center | April 27, 2017

According to Reuters, this morning Israeli jets carried out five strikes on depots belonging to Hezbollah close to Damascus International Airport. After the explosion, a fire broke out.

It should be mentioned, that it is not the first time that Israel has launched airstrikes on Syria. On April 21, Israeli aviation targeted Syrian Army positions in the area of Khan Arnabeh in the province of Quneitra. This attack was committed when the government forces were repulsing a large-scale militant offensive.

Israeli Intelligence Minister Israel Katz has already commented on this airstrike, stating that it corresponds completely with Israel’s policy to act to prevent Iran’s smuggling of advanced weapons via Syria to Hezbollah in Iran.

Under the pretext of fighting the Lebanese Islamist militant group, Israel supports Al-Qaeda and ISIS. Moreover, according to, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman stated that ISIS doesn’t pose any risk for Israel’s security.

In addition, the Defense Minister accused Bashar Assad of using chemical weapons in Khan Sheikhoun.

Israel also supported the recent U.S. missile strike on Al-Shayrat air base in Homs and Israeli President Reuven Rivlin called on other states to follow the U.S. example.

Apparently, Israel seems to be justifying the U.S. and its own illegal interventions in Syria, which are not aimed at fighting terrorism. Furthermore, the Israeli official discredits and demonizes Assad’s policy, without weighty arguments. Such Israeli actions also reduce the effectiveness of the government troops in the fight against terrorism.

It’s obvious that the current Israeli authorities have chosen the escalation of the Syrian conflict instead of political settlement. Sending new jets to bomb Syria, Israel negates diplomatic initiatives that advocate for the rights of Syrians in Astana and Geneva.

The Israeli attack on Syria has already caused vehement reactions in the international community. Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang stated that China opposes the use of military force. He also urged the world community to respect the territorial integrity and the sovereignty of Syria.

  1. While I appreciate the final paragraph re China’s reaction, I’d hardly call it “vehement.” The goddam Zionists should be called out in, yes, vehement and strident terms by all nations of the international community. The Zioentity so-called Israel must be identified by name and atrocity (there are so many…), vilified, sanctioned, brought to heel, made to understand that its never-ceasing “victimization” card has become so frayed and worn that it should be relegated to the dustbin. In fact, why not relegate the entire Zioentity and Zionist ideology to the dustbin of history? The Palestinians, Iraqis, Syrians, Lebanese, Libya (and even quislings like Egypt and Jordan) would appreciate it. So would I and my tax dollars.

  2. If Israel really believes they have the right to attack Syria to stop Hezbollah from receiving advanced weapons from Iran, would Israel also agree to let Syria and Iran attack Israel to stop the delivery of advanced weapons from America?

  4. WHY are my taxes going to people who SPIT on MY GOD?
    Every year YOU give $4+ BILLION of your taxes to Israel.
    Israel where Israelis SPIT everytime they see a CROSS or Priest..
    Israel who, if it acknowleges The Christ at all, claims HE is boiling in excrement in Hell
    Then “your” politicians give some bogus excuse why they HAVE to take a trip to Israel.
    Then they come back with STUFFED SUITCASES .
    How much of YOUR money is being used to BRIBE “your” politicians?
    YOUR taxes coming back to YOUR country in “your” politician’s pockets, so they will vote to give MORE money to those who HATE Jesus.
    Israel demands the Palestinians “recognize Israel’s right to exist” —- WELL,
    How can People that “Do not EXIST” recognize their DENIER’S “right to exist”?!
    Israel DENIES that Palestinians even EXIST!
    Where is Israel’s Recognition of the PALESTINIAN’S EXISTANCE!?
    Palestinian DENIERS are Christ DENIERS.
    Israel is attempting to create a MYTH that the Palestinians “do not exist”
    That is standard “dehumanizing prior to exterminating”
    Israel also DENIES Jesus Christ.
    WHEN Israel acknowledges HIM at all
    Israel calls Jesus “the BASTARD of a Roman soldier and Mary, a PROSTITUTE”
    Israel claims that JESUS is in HELL, boiling in excrement.
    Israel is a HUMANITY DENIER.

  5. The “World’s Policeman” is deafeningly quiet in response to Israel’s assault on the sovereign state of Syria, using American weapons. Why? I suppose it never occurs to the “World’s Policeman” to treat both sides of this argument in an ‘even handed’ manner?
