Israeli Jets Bomb Syrian Position 'from Lebanese Airspace'


Israel on Sunday launched an air strike on a Syrian regime military target in the west of the country, Syrian state media reported, as Lebanese media reports said the Israeli jets fired the missiles from Lebanon's airspace.

"One of our military positions in Masyaf was the target of an Israeli air aggression," Syria's official news agency SANA said quoting a military source.

It was the fourth time this month that Syria has accused Israel of bombing a military position in the war-wracked country.

An Israeli military spokesman declined to comment on the report.

A war monitor, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, also reported the air strike and said it targeted a "workshop supervised by Iranians where surface-to-surface missiles are made."

"Iranian forces and forces from Lebanon's Hizbullah movement are deployed in that sector," Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP.

A government scientific research center is located in Masyaf and was hit by an Israeli air strike in September 2017.

According to the United States sarin gas was being developed at that center, a charge denied by the Syrian authorities.

Israel has carried out numerous raids inside Syria since 2017, targeting regime forces and their allies from Iran and Hizbullah.

On July 15 SANA reported that Israeli missiles had hit near a strategic air base in the north of the country but said there were no casualties.

According to the Observatory nine pro-regime fighters, including three foreigners, were killed in the mid-July raid.

When will the humiliation end? This is the 150th on the record air strike since the Syrian uprising against the despotic giraffe.

Where was Iran’s S300 and Russia’s S400 ? :)))

What happened to ado.australia S-400s?? Didn't he say 2 years ago that from now on Israel will not be allowed to fly over Syria and Lebanon ?

Thumb whyaskwhy 23 July 2018, 18:51

Yes... Israel now needs permission from Russia to fly in Syria and Lebanon and even in northern Israel! S-400 is a game changer and now only the US F22 raptors can do anything without Russian permission! israel is even more upset as they now cannot even enter Lebanese airspace!!!! Now Israel is finally vonerable in Lebanese airspace!"

I have the utmost respect for Mrs. gigahabib because as always it provides logical analysis of current events from a purely shia point of view.

Thumb galaxy 23 July 2018, 21:23

just like the same hypocrites who claim "America created ISIS" always cheer at the USA for bombing ISIS.

Thumb justin 23 July 2018, 21:49

it is called 'blowback' according to giga:)

Thumb s.o.s 23 July 2018, 21:28

Brothers fight ya zakzak, friends and allies as well. Look at the US and Fethulla Gulen. They even tried to topple the dictator president Erdogan. It’s no different between Syria and Israel.

أسفر القصف الجوي الذي استهدف مبنى للبحوث العملية في معامل الدفاع قرب مدينة مصياف غربي حماة مساء الأحد، عن مقتل 8 عناصر من ميليشيا أسد و11 عنصرا من الميليشيات الإيرانية.
