Israeli Strikes Target Iranian Positions in Syria


Israeli missile strikes targeted Iranian military positions in the Syrian provinces of Hama and Tartus on Tuesday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said.

Syria's state news agency SANA said its air defense systems downed several missiles launched from Israeli warplanes.

The Observatory said missiles struck Wadi al-Oyoun in the central province of Hama, near a scientific research center which was already targeted by Israeli strikes in July and last year. 

Iranian military positions in coastal region of Banias, in the province of Tartus, were also targeted, the Britain-based monitoring organization said.

"There was material damage," said Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman.

"The air defense system responded to an Israeli aggression carried out by aircraft... that targeted some of our military positions in the provinces of Tartus and Hama," SANA said, quoting a military source.

"Some of the missiles" were downed, the agency said, reporting an initial casualty toll of one dead and four wounded.

SANA is as credible as when @mowateh aka giga incorruptible habib says he is not shia and has only one account, or when @southern says he is patriotic, or even worse when @blablablabla says he is French of European parents and lives in Harissa.

bless anyone person, entity, organization, brigade or country that inflicts extreme pain and unbearable suffering, death, torture, and destruction upon the iranian sectarian terrorist militia and its members, sponsors, supporters or followers wherever they may be.

Expecting a response by hezbollah in the 'heart of occupied Palestine' anytime now!

Nassrallah revealed that Israel was warned via a foreign state that “the next response would be in the heart of occupied Palestine".

Tell me this wasn’t done with Vladimir’s green light ;)

Iran and hizbala still didn’t get that Syria is part of the Росси́йская Федера́ция ( Rossiyskaya Federatsiya ) and that Bashar has a leash around his long neck.

I’m loving it!
