BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:45 A.M.) – The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) unleashed a massive attack on the Damascus countryside at 1:05 A.M. (local time), tonight, hitting a number of targets in and around the town of Al-Kisweh.

According to a military source, Israeli jets were first spotted over Jabal Sheikh-Golan Heights area; they would then fire several missiles towards Al-Kisweh.

The Syrian military then activated their air defense units, but were unable to stop all the missiles that were fired at the Damascus countryside.

The spokesperson for the Israeli Defense Forces confirmed the airstrikes, claiming that they were targeting Iran’s Quds Forces.

The Israeli Air Force is now launching another wave of strikes on Damascus, with some reports claiming they are hitting targets near the Damascus International Airport.

FU*KING TERRORIST CRIMINAL REGIME OF ISIS-RAHELL

ISIS was created by IRGC, it’s the alliance of al-Qaeda in Iraq and Saddamists.
Actually, IDF never did any genocide. In fact, they’re even avoiding casualties as much as possible. In 70 years, they only did 75-85k fatalities on their enemies. It’s about the half that were induced by PLO on Lebanon when Arafat started the civil war in 1975 when he tried to take the control of the country. He already tried in ordan in 1970-71. King Hussein killed 27,000 Palestinians while suppressing the failed coup.
Hussein pounded PLO refugees camps with artillery and aviation until Arafat gave up.

Thank you for the information. I always thought Israel is an immoral/apartheid country that steals Palestinian land and kills them. Now thanks to you I/we know the truth /sarcasm

You keep talking out of your a**e. Where’s the explanation that ISIS was created by IRGC? You have no such explanation. ISIS was engineered by the West to make it difficult for Iran to supply the Syrian government with weapons and much needed supplies. Care to explain why ISIS was created between Syria and Iraq (right in the way of Iran’s supplies)? It’s simple to make it difficult for Iran to continue its support to Syria – but you never mentioned that. Iran is the Shia powerhouse, yet ISIS see Shia as infidels. So why would Iran create ISIS (whose… Read more »

Putin is the only man who is standing between “arabs” and Israhell.
IF he moves away, the “arabs” will annihilate Israhell.

Piro : let me laugh! Arabs see Turkey and Iran as threats and are no more into trying to annihilate Israel for long, they’ve been humiliated enough at trying and are not enough suicidal to want to end into a radioactive Mushroom. Even Iran, despite being loudmouthed, hasn’t the bälls for a direct confrontation and Assad is far from packing an enough powerful army+economy, in fact, as for his dad, wouldn’t be there old Ba’ath party hardliners who probably would assassinate him and his family would he sign a peace treaty, it’d be done for long. Most Ara leaders avoid… Read more »

If Putin is the one standing between Damascus shooting down Israeli F-16jets and Israel responding with nukes ,Putin needs to call Netanyahu’s bluff and let him know under no uncertain language ” you use nukes on Syria , we use nukes on you ” .Netanyahu and the zionists are chicken shits .They will definitely back down on the threat if any such thing has been launched . Israel is the one bombing Syria against international law and let no one give me the bull$hit of striking at Iran targets in Syria.Let Israel try and hit Iran directly and see how… Read more »

Such attacks are every day occurence of late. The only thing the Great nation of Syria does in the face of such attacks is to type and send a letter to the UN. Syria hopes to develop immunity to irael attacks in the near future?

The immunnity is simple to obtain : they just have to stop letting Iran transfer weapons to Hezbollah (or eventually Hamas or PIJ) through their territory.
When Assad gives a few hundred of Syrian made M-302 rockets to Hamas or Hezb, don’t be surprised if Israelis strike the depot, it’s even their legitimate right to do so!
If you’re stockpiling oil canisters and have recruited thugs to burn your neighbour’s house and moreover are proffering threats on him, don’t be surprised if your neighbour ends throwing a Molotov cocktail on your canisters! You asked for it!

=> Amusing since IRGC/Quds-Force targets were blasted and since SyADF interfered despite having been warned to avoid, 6 SyADF air-defense systems have been demolished too.
