BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 A.M.) – For the first time this year, the Israeli Air Force has launched several missiles towards the Syrian capital city of Damascus.

According to local sources, the Israeli missiles targeted the vicinity of the Damascus International Airport; this prompted the Syrian military to activate its air defenses to intercept the projectiles.

The sources added that the Syrian military was able to intercept several of the Israeli missiles, but some had reached their intended targets near the airport.

They would add that a military warehouse was heavily damaged as a result of this attack by the Israeli Air Force.

A source in Syrian Ministry of Transport confirmed to SANA later that the Damascus International Airport traffic was not affected by the strikes.

SANA news told that only limited damage in that warehouse and only one missile hit the target..8 of them were intercepted and destroyed!…Israel has wasted 2.250.000 US Dollar( cost of 9 Delilah cruise missile) to damage a warehouse which cost around 20.000-30.000 US dollar repair it.

Problem is, that’s exactly what the zio warmongers want. Israel and it’s US puppets will always act with total impunity until all the Mid East nations band together against this Tyranny.

You are probably correct.I just find it hard to swallow such impunity by these zionist criminals always playing the victim and claiming that they are only defending themselves all the while striking firstly at whom they consider to be their enemy .Cowards .

@summitflyer, very hard to swallow.

p.s. Try to take down as much as possible, complain but do not give the aggressor a excuse to step up aggression.

If he outguns You.

@Byzantium, IMHO You are right. Only common action and political means can have success. If You mean that?

No use to unite for a war. Israel’s equivalent of expatriates will donate enough to pay for military spendings that outgun even the band.

p.s. A political appeal to the UN(SC) and to Israel’s liberal “expatriates” makes more sense.

@summitflyer, no use, Israel spent 21 billion $ on military, Syria less than two. Syria can only use political means via UNSC to contain attacks.

Attacks if this type will continue as long as Israel can violate with total impunity Lebanon’s airspace to position themselves for strikes. And as long as the S 300 are there without ever entering into service. A treaty between Lebanon and Syria should be signed , whereby Syria may defend Lebanese airspace. Israeli jets should be fired upon as soon as they enter it.

@Cyriak Papasissis, makes sense that the two countries share air defense assets. Or Syria and Russia hire theirs out to Lebanon.

Totally agree. Israel’s NUTenyahoo struck a deal with Putin during his last visit to Moscow.otherwise they would not want to risk been shot down. Putin must have given some type of assurance.

These Zio savages have become so brazen it’s time for Syria to say enough already and switch on those fckn S300’s and yes encompass Lebanese airspace just to show they now mean business.

@Byzantium, Russia undoubtedly limited the SS 300 to self defense. But that self defense IMHO means that Lebanese air space must be included. Otherwise the reaction time is so short that IDF air to ground rockets can get through. AFAIR our French friend Daeshback SX explained once in detail how the attack are done.
