BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu commented on the IDF’s attack last night in Syria’s capital city, Damascus.

In an interview with Radio Jerusalem, Netanyahu said the operation was an attempt to target a senior leader of the Islamic Jihad Movement, but failed.

“The Israeli army tried to assassinate and target an Islamic Jihad leader in Damascus without mentioning his name, but failed and instead targeted two from his movement,” Netanyahu reportedly said, as quoted by Sputnik Arabic.

On the possibility of the Israeli army entering into a military operation in the Gaza Strip, Netanyahu said that “if Israel enters into a large-scale military operation in Gaza, it will be greater than the three previous wars,” pointing to “tension in the south and rocket fire in the vicinity of the Strip.”

The Israeli Prime Minister said: “They know they are attacking us and we are ready to attack and eliminate them.”

He pointed out that “there may be no escape but to go out in a battle to clean Gaza, but I do not rush to war.”

Netanyahu’s comments came just hours after the Israeli Defense Forces carried out several strikes in Damascus and the Gaza Strip.

The Israelis have been stealing Palestinian homes and land holdings for the last 70 years and expect the original population not to react???
Try that [email protected] on China and Russia and see what reactions you get.

This is a lie! Arabs have stolen the whole Levant and North Africa during the 7th century, and even Spain…
BTW, even your stupid Coran twice says that the land of Israel belongs to the Jews and even ORDERS them to live there!
Oh, did I mentioned that before 1918, there were less than 15,000 Arabs living west of the Jordan river and it was a total shïthole with only rocks, marshes and sand?
I let you explain us how the population grew to 5 millions within a century! Even pigs don’t reproduce at such a rate!

You’re very selective about your Palestinian history. You neglected to mention that before the Jewish invasion of Palestine the majority of the population for hundreds of years was Palestinian Arabs. There were very few Jews living in Palestine during the 19th century and before and not too many even until the 1920s post-Great War. The majority of Jewish colonizers were smuggled in post-WWII from Europe under the noses of British Mandate controlling Palestine altering the population mix. Since then the Jewish colonizers have been expelling Palestinian Arabs and stealing their homes and land that wasn’t allocated to them under the… Read more »

Are Israel-USA-NATO willing to get rid of their creation ? I do not think so. These “WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION” can say whatever they want, only their citizens will believe them.

You don’t assassinate a jihadi, you just send him back to where he belongs.

So why won’t you Jews go ‘home’? The excuse for looting across the globe and hatred for God was for two thousand years was “we don’t have a home and God burned us out as promised for Our iniquity and rejection of all the prophets ” Well I think every person claiming to be a Jew outside Israel should be treated as an invader. By there own admission they segregate and reject the country they are parasites in. I hope you are not one of those fake Jews who live abroad and preach global h**o usury and unlimited immigration for… Read more »
