Israel Launches Air Strike On Iran Base Near Damascus

Update: the following CCTV footage from an industrial site at Kisweh, S. Damascus shows the moment of impact of the suspected Israel strike. Footage also shows what appears to be secondary explosions.

Meawhile, Syrian State TV reports that there were two civilian causalities as a result of the Israeli strikes on Al- Kisweh

* * *

Just minutes after Israel instructed local authorities in the occupied Golan Heights to "unlock and ready bomb shelters", after identifying apparent "irregular activity of Iranian forces in #Syria”, and putting Israeli troops on high alert, an Israeli air strike on Syrian army positions was reported after missiles were reportedly fired from Israel above Qunaitra province in Syria, and striking an alleged Iranian base in the Al-Kisweh region south of Damascus, an industrial area with many factories and a suspected Iranian presence.

No casualties have been reported, in the strike which reportedly targeted Iranian military communication bases:

The Syrian state news agency SANA reported the sound of explosions near Kisweh and said Syrian air defenses fired at and destroyed two Israeli missiles in the Kisweh area.

The location of the strike is shown below:

According to unconfirmed social media sources, two rockets reportedly hit a factory in the area.

In response to the Israeli attack, Syrian air defenses fired at rockets, with reports on the ground claiming that Syrian air defenses reportedly downed two incoming missiles.

All this takes place shortly after Trump announced the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.

For now there has been no official statement from Syria, or Iran for that matter, which is surely next on Israel's to do list.

Meanwhile, as journalist Danny Makki writes, and as we explained earlier, the tension on the ground will only escalate:

Lol ...

How many ZH readers saw this coming  ?

 

Aside; radio communications intercepted between the Israeli fighter jets revealed gut wrenching screams of pain in orchestral timing with the salvos of missiles fired.

Bibi will drag the US by hook or by crook into a war with Iran. The next step looks like a false-flag attack blamed on Iran:

Benjamin Netanyahu has accused Iran of planting “very dangerous weapons” in Syria in a bid to threaten Israel.

According to the prime minister, Iran is “seeking to plant very dangerous weapons in Syria … for the specific purpose of our [Israel’s] destruction.”

 The Israeli Air Force has allegedly struck the western countryside of Damascus tonight, causing loud explosions close to the occupied Golan Heights.

Jews are clever and cunning and ugly as Hyenas, but not one is Wise and True as the Lion. They do not know it, but their god of the Talmud is Lucifer.

Just like Hyenas, the tiny Jew will devour an elephant by avoiding the tough hide and eating its way through the elephant's fleshy asshole. The hyena and his *Mishpacha will then proceed to tunnel and eat its way through an entire elephant.

*Mishpacha: origin Yiddish. A pack of hyenas or a Zionist family.

Yeah, Iran is going to attack Israel head on.  These jack asses still don't know anything. Iran is not the same thing as the bunch of backwards Arabs the Israelis are use to dealing with.

Iran is going to wait for the pendulum to swing the other way with the US administration - which it will, because Trump got elected for his anti-war talk - and then they are going to use a proxy to do a redux of Lebanon barracks or something like that, and the US is going to pull up anchor and bounce.

Iran is obviously not happy, but they and the Russians and Chinese have spent the past few years uprooting the USD hegemony, slowly but surely. They will eventually denominate a currency in gold, backed by their nuclear arsenal, and then it will be GG for the US and the Israelis will be left hanging on the teet, but the milk will have run dry.

And naming a square in Jerusalem after Trump.  They know him and play him like a fiddle.

This, Israeli action, is the troubling part of Trump's decision.  Iran now knows that any response to any instigation by Israel is followed by the might of the US.   Reminds me of being a kid and gang would send a little boy over and kick you in the ass and if you responded, well.....

This is were we find ourselves.

I think it's a good guess that the Israelis are using air-to-ground standoff missiles (AGMs) fired from F-16s or F-15s. Since these are relatively small fighter jets, these AGMs must be much smaller than those cruise missiles the USSA launched. However, the cruise missile are really nothing but drones with warheads that have been proven easy to shoot down, AGMs are much faster, and so probably difficult to intercept. But these can only deliver small warheads, so they may be more symbolic, rather than substantial weapons.

While the synagogue of satan aka so-called israel agitates for more and more wars.

They are also Destroying your rights of FREE SPEECH:

"As is expected in this upside-down world of ours, while Mamma Merkel roams free to wreak havoc and cause more rapes and deaths of Germans at the hands of her sainted and untouchable Turd World "migrants," Ursula (89) and Monika (60's) -- with the gleeful approval of Jews all over the world -- are condemned to waste away a few years in German prisons for their thought-crime of Holocaust Denial" ™. Boy-oh-boy, the "usual suspects" sure do make it difficult for decent people of good will not to "hate" them, don't they?"

Dear God please effect the release of these women: Ursula Haverbeck, Monika Schaefer, Sylvia Stoltz from their jew supremacist terrorist oppressors !

This wins the award for stupidest, most financially ignorant comment of the year (so far). but I love it.

So, no one is going to do SHIT until the US gives them permission to, basically. I’m good widdat.

”denominate a currency in gold” Baahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! 

Backed by their nuclear arsenal! Baaahhaaaaaaaaaa!  So if I get a MIRV Certificate for 10000 Gold Roubles, can I present it to Vlad and he will give me a nuclear cruise missile?

Sadly, there may not be any of those intact in Israel after the billion Arabs surrounding little Israel finally say enough is enough. Just contaminated dust. It's really tragic that Jews won't stop attacking their neighbors. Always comes back to bite them.

You'd think Jews would realize that the only thing protecting satanic Israel from justice is American power, so they shouldn't destroy America. But they just can't help themselves, they undermine America from within at every turn.
