Israel Claims To Have Intercepted "Syrian Regime Chatter" Confirming Assad Behind Attack

The planting and harvesting of false flags in Syria will soon need a full crop rotation following the latest "revelation" by Germany's Focus magazine (on Saturday), subsequently reported by the Times of Israel today, that Israeli Defense Forces had listened in on senior Syrian officials discussing a chemical attack last Wednesday in real-time. TOI reports that "according to the report Saturday in Focus magazine, a squad specializing in wire-tapping within the IDF’s prestigious 8200 intelligence unit intercepted a conversation between high-ranking regime officials regarding the use of chemical agents at the time of the attack. The report, which cited an ex-Mossad official who insisted on remaining anonymous, said the intercepted conversation proved that Bashar Assad’s regime was responsible for the use of nonconventional weapons."

More from Times of Israel:

An Israeli TV report on Saturday claimed that the missiles were fired by the 155th Brigade of the 4th Armored Division of the Syrian Army, a division under the command of the Syrian president’s brother, Maher Assad.


The nerve gas shells were fired from a military base in a mountain range to the west of Damascus, the Channel 2 report said.


The embattled regime has concentrated its vast stocks of chemical weaponry in just two or three locations, the report continued, under the control of Syrian Air Force Intelligence, itself reporting to the president.


The TV report further added that “the assessment in Israel” is that the attack was intended to serve as the possible start of a wider operation.


On Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the situation in Syria couldn’t be allowed to continue.


Netanyahu said that Israel “will always know how to protect [its] citizens” should Syrian weapons be turned on the Jewish state.


“Our hand is always on the pulse,” he said. “Our finger is a responsible one and if needed, is on the trigger. We will always know how to protect our citizens and our country against those who come to injure us or try to attack us.”

Israel, like the rest of the world, has refrained from responding to the Syrian crisis in any large-scale way, taking in only a small number of injured Syrians and reportedly carrying out covert air strikes at regime weapons sites. Yet officials have said action must be taken, with most expecting Washington to respond to the attack.

So let's get this straight: an attack takes place on Wednesday, Focus reports on Saturday, the news becomes mainstream after the US and the entire western world have long made up their mind that the perpetrator was Assad, the source is an anonymous Mossad operative, yet the contents of the actual conversation in which it is proven beyond a reasonable doubt that the perpetrator is "the 155th Brigade of the 4th Armored Division of the Syrian Army, a division under the command of the Syrian president’s brother, Maher Assad" are unknown.

It continues: supposedly the conversation was overheard in "real-time" in which case one wonders why Israel did not go public with this "information" or disclose just what the actual "chatter" was (together with proof of the identities of the speakers of course) earlier, or after the attack, in which case one can only assume the Assad regime, knowing very well the NSA and the entire world was eavesdropping on every form of electronic communication, was merely begging for the admiration that admission of such an attack would generate on the public arena.

Or something else just as nonsensical along those lines.

Either way, it is probably safe to say the terminal escalation is in play and now the "democratic" regimes are just following through with the PR motions, what actually happened be damned.
