On 12 January Israeli aircraft carried out multiple missile strikes on the suburbs of the Syrian capital Damascus. The attack was repelled by the Syrian Air Defence and most of the missiles were shot down, while a warehouse near Damascus International Airport was damaged by the strikes.

On Sunday morning Benjamin Netanyahu said that the Israeli Air Force had targeted Iranian targets in Syria. “The recent attacks prove that we are as determined as every to act against Iran and Syria”, he said as cited by Haaretz.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry said it had sent letters to the United Nations following an Israeli aerial attack near Damascus. Syria’s Foreign Ministry has demanded that the United Nations take immediate measures to prevent new Israeli attacks.

It is not the first time Israeli authorities have said that Tel Aviv is conducting operations against Iranian targets in Syria, while ignoring Tehran’s statement that its forces maintain an exclusively advisory role in Syria, denying any plans to establish a permanent military presence in the country.

Earlier in December, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to continue Israeli operations in Syria to counter Iran’s military presence in the country, following Washington’s decision to withdraw from the Arab Republic.

Actually, there is still only one Rotschild still being a billionaire with only about $1.5bln wealth, which is not even the half of Hamas leader Haniyeh who stole $3.6bln from UN-help to Fakestinians… We’re no more in the XIXth century when the Rotchilds’ were the wealthiest family on Earth. This is nowhere near Amazon’s boss Jeff Bezos whose personnal wealth is about $150 billions…
You’re just 2 centuries late when it comes to history and 14 centuries late when it comes to mindset, thanks to stupid religious beliefs…

Actually, they act in compliance to UNSC resolution 1761 ordering the disarmament of Hezb, to the Hague Convention and the UN Charter.
By doing violations on these 3 international “human rules”, Iran, Syria, Lebanon and Hezbollah can only blame themselves for IDF strikes and only idiots won’t get why.
