Jerusalem (AFP) - Israel issued stark warnings on Sunday over Iran's presence in neighbouring Syria after a confrontation threatened to open a new and unpredictable period in the country's seven-year civil war.

Israel carried out major air raids in Syria on Saturday, including against what it described as Iranian targets -- the first time it had publicly acknowledged doing so since the war began.

The raids came after an Israeli F16 fighter was shot down by Syrian air defences. The pilots survived, but it was Israel's first loss of a warplane in battle since 1982.

I saw elsewhere that this involved an Iranian staff of drone operators at a site fairly near the Syrian border. The IDF observed Iranian drone flight(s) and they struck at its source by triangulating on the radio control signals.

They dispatched several jets to deal with the threat which they did promptly. On the return to Israel, they were being shot at by Iranian/Hezbollah antiaircraft missiles. One jet was hit as it came back over the Syrian border and the jet crashed on Israeli territory, the two pilots parachuted, one was almost unscathed, the other was in critical condition in an Israeli hospital.

It's worth keeping in mind that the Western intel agencies are certain that Hezbollah has at least 40,000 missiles they could fire at Israel. Some locally produced, many others from Iran and other sources. Many estimates of Hezbollah missile numbers go up to 60K or 70K. What we know for certain is that they do have many tens of thousands of missiles that can be used to attack Israel in strategic depth.

Mossad is not fooled. This was a probing attack by Iran on Israel's defenses to determine their trigger levels for taking action against a foe deploying a new threat to Israel's security.

The God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob can protect nation israel, we need to Stand Down NOW. This is none of our business. I for one am finished buying the false narrative of "The Jews". If they are the people of YHVH, he will protect them. We should remain a supporter from afar, sell them what they need at market prices, but keep our forces clear of the region. BRING OUR TROOPS HOME FROM SYRIA!! This is an unconstitutional act of war to build bases inside of Syria and other ME nations. We as a nation now live by the motto "Might makes right". It simply will not end well for us at the end of the day, being the fighting force for internationalists.

THIS IS A TAG LINE...Exercising rights is only radical to two people, Tyrants and Slaves. Which are YOU? Our ignorance has driven us into slavery and we do not recognize it.

Israeli Officials Try to Spin Attacks as Targeting Iran

Israeli officials have been carrying out large-scale attacks against several military sites within Syria, claiming to have done major damage to Syria’s air defenses nationwide. The Israeli Air Force described the attack as the most significant attack on Syria since 1982. Israel’s F-16 crashed in Lower Galilee

The incident started with Israeli shooting down a small drone from the Syrian military research site that they’ve repeatedly attacked in recent weeks, a site they claim is an “Iranian base.” The drone crossed into Israeli airspace. Israel responded with airstrikes against Syria, as it so often does.

But Syria’s air defenses were a bit more successful this time, and one of Israel’s F-16s managed to crash. Whether it was hit by an anti-aircraft missile or just took shrapnel damage, the warplane crashed in Israel, and one of the pilots was hurt.

Israel responded to this with massive attacks against Syria, hitting four different military sites and apparently targeting air defense systems. Syria is threatening further action if Israel continues to attack, while Israeli officials insist the attacks will continue.

Interestingly, almost all Israeli officials are presenting this to the public as an attack on Iran, as opposed to Syria, and are now calling all of the Syrian military bases that’ve been attacked are “Iranian bases.”

Some Israeli analysts are warning that this is a very dangerous rhetorical strategy, as Russian officials have been trying to calm the situation, and with Israel both continuing to escalate and making it about Iran, they may be pushing Russia into a more explicitly pro-Iran stance.

The US State Department seems to be fine with however many attacks Israel wants to conduct, and is buying the Iran narrative hook, line, and sinker. In a statement endorsing further Israeli attacks as self-defense, the State Department didn’t even mention Syria, instead railing on about what a threat Iran poses.

This puts the post-attack rhetoric in a bizarre place, with Syria bragging that they sent a “clear message” in downing the Israeli warplane, and Israel skipping right over Syria in official statements and trying to make it into a war with Iran.

If they are the people of YHVH, he will protect them.

Survey says...

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) rights in Israel are the most advanced in the Middle East, and one of the most advanced in Asia.[1] Although same-sex sexual activity was legalized in 1988, the former law against sodomy had not been enforced since a court decision of 1963.[2]

In the Old Testament the real Israelites would have been heading off for another 40 year punitive vacation in the desert.... or into captivity by their enemies, again.

Not my problem, or it shouldn't be. From what I can see, this nation was founded with the blessing of YHVH. It uses myth to paint a portrait of miraculous foundings and delivery from its enemies when it should have lost. The words you write are unrefuted, and the madness of US foreign policy looks to drag us into war for no reason other than the vanity of Zionists, who I say for the umpteenth time, are not Jews, or Greeks, or Russians, or Brits, or Germans. They are simply people using the cover of the holocaust and bigotry to push a one world agenda. Right now, getting the world involved in massive world war in the ME is just fine with them.

Selling spirits on credit.

Just a coinkidink prohibition ended the same year the spirit vendors were starving 6-10 million people to death with a genocidal famine.

No surprise where Adolphe Coors learned his craft, either.
