Israel Continues Its Interference in Syria

Firas Samuri

On June 2, Syrian Arab News Agency reported on Israeli aggression on the T4 airbase, located in the eastern countryside of Homs province.

It’s recognized that the Syrian Air Defense System managed to destroy two missiles. The remaining rockets hit targets on the territory of the base, resulting in one martyr, two injured servicemen, and damage to an arms depot and other equipment.

For the past several days the Israeli aviation repeatedly attacked the Syrian territory. Tel-Aviv struck artillery and two anti-missile batteries not far from Damascus, on the night of June 2. Three Syrian soldiers were killed, and seven others were severely wounded.

The Israeli forces hastened to declare that the strikes were a retaliation for the launches of the Syrian missiles towards Mount Hermon in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

The Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, said he had ordered the strike. “We won’t tolerate fire at our territory and will respond forcefully to any aggression against us,” he said. The Prime Minister also held a meeting on security issues after the Syrian attacks on the Golan Heights.

However, the actual reasons for the Israeli attacks are entirely different.

Currently, the country is preparing for the parliamentary elections, so Netanyahu needs good public relations to demonstrate his determination. He does his best to score points in the domestic arena, including the acts of aggression against the sovereign state.

Thus, he proves his intention not to return the occupied territories to Damascus. Notably, in the lead-up to the Knesset elections in April, the same provocation was seen.

Since the beginning of 2019, Israeli forces have carried out at least 10 massive strikes on various objects in Syria, which they claimed belonged to Iran.

Apart from open aggression against Damascus, Tel-Aviv often use another method of influence, namely accusing the Syrian government of preparing chemical weapons provocation. The Israeli Foreign Ministry has repeatedly stated that Bashar Assad possesses vast reserves of chemical weapons, and even is capable of producing a new shipment of arms, violating the international rules and restrictions.

Last month it became known that the Israeli government had been responsible for staging several White Helmets’ videos on the alleged use of the chemical weapons against civilians in Idlib province by the Syrian Arab Army.

It’s reported that the Israeli personnel has written scripts, trained the representatives of Civil Defense in the territory of the Golan Heights, then transferred them to Idlib province, and also looked for volunteers for staging fake videos. Later the footage was submitted to the mainstream media for further replication.

The actions of Israel in Syria are illegal. Tel-Aviv is not interested in the early resolution of the Syrian crisis. Hiding behind the fight against the presence of Iranian forces, supporting the White Helmets, Israel continues to violate the sovereignty of Syria, as well as provisions of UN Security Council resolutions.

The UN is an international organization designed to watch the peacekeeping process all around the World. When is it going to pay precious attention at the Israeli aggression towards Syria?

This is a decent analysis of the Syrian Civil war Assad, or we burn the country by Sam Dagher From a Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist specializing in the Middle East, this groundbreaking account of the Syrian Civil War reveals the never-before-published true story of a 21st-century humanitarian disaster. In spring 2011, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad turned to his friend and army commander, Manaf Tlass, for advice about how to respond to Arab Spring-inspired protests. Tlass pushed for conciliation but Assad decided to crush the uprising — an act which would catapult the country into an eight-year long war, killing almost half a million and fueling terrorism and a global refugee crisis. Assad or We Burn the Country examines Syria’s tragedy through the generational saga of the Assad and Tlass families, once deeply intertwined and now estranged in Bashar’s bloody quest to preserve his father’s inheritance. By drawing on his own reporting… Read more »

So why did the British Foreign Office in 2009 tell former French Foreign minister Roland Dumas that they were planning a conflict in Syria and asked if the French would like to join them. When asked on TV what was the objective of the conflict he replied that Israeli PMs had told him that iff a leader of a country did not cooperate then he had to be brought down.

Ever heard of Wesley Clark? His admission that the United States planned to ‘take out 7 countries in 5 years’ incl. Syria. I’m sure you’ve heard of a little country called Israel. Do you know about the Oled Yinon Plan? You wouldn’t be in Tel Aviv by any chance William? Do you know who has been funding and arming the various jihadist groups in Syria? You’d have to be pretty blind to Not see that the ‘civil war’ in Syria was a full scale attempt at regime change to replace the Syrian Govt with a puppet regime that bends its knee to Uncle Sam, Uncle Bibi, and Uncle MbS. I also echo what Haltonbrat said as well as the Roland Dumas admission.

“Assad decided to crush the uprising.” Syria has been in the cross hairs of the Neocohens since the 1990s, long before 9/11. It is one of 7 countries targeted for destruction in 5 years, to serve the Zionist Greater Israel Agenda. Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Iran, Libya, Sudan, Somalia. All of this has been fully documented. All of those countries have been attacked. Some have been completely destroyed. Criminal wars of aggression based on lies, economic strangulation “they have to do as they’re told if they want their people to eat”, proxy terrorist campaigns, political subversion and regime change, psychological warfare, cyber attacks, propaganda vilification through the pliant MSM. Of course there have been other more recent victims, Ukraine, DPRK, Venezuela. The SAS was training jihadi terror gangs in Turkey and Jordan at least 5 years before 2011. When unrest broke out in 2o11, Assad adopted a conciliatory approach from the… Read more »

One disturbing aspect of these continued Israeli strikes on Syrian territory is that the Israelis liaise with the Russians to ensure no Russians are killed or injured whenever such a strike takes place. This implies Russian military staff meeting their Syrian counterparts are aware of an impending Israeli attack, but do not inform the Syrians, this is incomprehensible. Hezbollah have warned the Israelis that any attack on their forces, especially in Lebanon will be met with retaliation, the Israelis have heeded that warning. Assad on the other hand is in a difficult position not wanting a war on two fronts, unfortunately the Israelis will continue [with impunity] to strike Syria until the Syrians are in a better military and political situation, or better still are given the S400 system which has a much longer range than the S300 and can reach out over Lebanese airspace [where the attacks originate]. Putin’s… Read more »

Yes, it seems rather moot as to why Russia supplies S300s to Syria who then apparently aren’t allowed to use them. No doubt the Saker will put forward a convoluted explanation why this is all part of a cunning plan on Putin’s part, but I for one would like to be a fly on the wall in the little tete-a-tete between Putin and Netanyahu.

Putin would prefer to supply, not S300s, but S400s, to Turkey. Maybe so it can shoot down a few more Russian aircraft. Or Shady Wahabia, which cooperated with Washington to collapse the oil price in a bid to destroy the Russian economy. As you say, no doubt this is all some cunning plan only someone with the intellect of the Saker could possibly understand. Certainly not mere mortals like me. Probably the same reason they refused to fulfil the contract to complete Bushehr. If I was Iran, Or Syria, I’d be more frightened of Russia than the Chosen Folk and their Washington stooges. Maybe all three are one and the same.

My understanding is that the Syrians still needed training to use the S300 missile defence systems. The training should have been completed as of March this year, depending on who or what you read and that source’s political agenda.

There may be other reasons that the Syrians have not yet used S300s against the Israelis. One reason is that the Israelis, when attacking Syrian targets, are continuing to use civilian aircraft or facilities and US-allied aircraft as shields. The Russian and Syrian rules of engagement are strict and do not permit attacking Israeli aircraft if there is the risk of accidentally hitting civilians and civilian structures, even when those Israeli aircraft themselves are not observing their own or others’ rules of engagement.

This aggression will continue until the Chosen Folk know that they will pay a price for their murderous antics. So long as they are enabled and facilitated to operate with complete impunity by Shabbos Goys like Trump and May (and Putin), they will continue to do so. As soon as they have to pay that price, they sh*t their pants and run squealing to Uncle Sam. Hezbollah bitch slapped the Chosen Folk in 2006, and after that they learned some manners and largely left Lebanon alone, apart from the small part they still illegally occupy. This is the only thing that works with the Chosen Folk. If Hezbollah had not been around to fight them for 20 years, kick them out and teach them a lesson, Lebanon would still be occupied and covered with filthy illegal Zionist settlements. Assad should lob a Scud into Israel every time Syria is attacked.… Read more »

Sure, how many do you want? 1. It supported US sanctions against Iraq that caused the deaths of 500,000 children from 1991-2003. Russia previously had friendly relations with Iraq. 2. It did the same with Iran. Based on WMD lies that Russia acknowledged were lies. Children died as a result. Did it in return for worthless US promises, never kept, not to place missiles on the Russian border. 3. It is currently doing the same with DPRK. Subhuman filth like Pompeo and Bolton have been bragging about people dying as a result. Russia previously had good relations with both. 4. It refused to fulfil its contract to complete Bushehr. To curry favour with the Zionists and their 30 shekel whores in Washington. 5. It refused to supply S300s Iran had paid for. To curry favour with the Zionists and their 30 shekel whores in Washington. It preferred to supply S400s… Read more »

“One disturbing aspect of these continued Israeli strikes on Syrian territory is that the Israelis liaise with the Russians to ensure no Russians are killed or injured whenever such a strike takes place.” Apart from Russian military aircraft shot down after an Israeli F-16 used it as a decoy. Israel’s attacks are strategically insignificant, merely election ploys by Nutty and attempts to make the IDF look important. They are also a desparate attempts by Israel to distract Russia / Syria and allies from the prime target of destroying ISIS/etc in Syria. Syria /Russia would be foolish to open up another front at Israel’s behest. It is more appropriate to wait until it suits them. Get rid of ISIS etc then sort the Golan. Israel fires long range glide bombs from outside Syrian airspace. Conventional Syrian air defense is suitably effective for these munitions. The use of S-300s against glide bombs… Read more »

Firas Samuri….”The UN is an international organization designed to watch the peacekeeping process all around the World. When is it going to pay precious attention at the Israeli aggression towards Syria”? The answer is never, since the US and the four other members on the UNSC have a veto on any action by themselves and importantly their allies, including Saudi Arabia and Israel, here is how Dr David Morrison describes that veto with regard to the aggression against Iraq. “The UK, France and the UK are above International Law, for all time. “Roosevelt and Churchill built into the architecture of the United Nations the principle that the US and UK are above the rule for all time They accorded themselves permanent seats on the Security Council, the only United Nations body with any authority, and gave themselves a veto on decisions of the Council The result is that they can… Read more »

Fully agree with your use of the word ‘never’ and also fully agree with your statement that U.S, France and U.K are above international law for all time. Anytime Israel and its repeatedly war criminal Govt is bought before the U.N…. Veto. Veto. Veto. And these countries go on about the ‘international rules based order’ with a straight face! Excellent comment Harry.

“resulting in one martyr”

injecting religion into this conflict isn’t helpful, especially given the normal use of the term by the Muslim Brotherhood et al.

How about “victim of an international crime of aggression by the world’s leading purveyor of same”?

I know it doesn’t scan as well, but the sane world can do without martyrs, thanks. Even when fighting Israel.

Syria is not known for injecting religion into this conflict or much else. But allow those when describing mass murder, terrorism and war crimes their own words for those killed defending the freedom of it’s people.
