Two killed in Israeli missile attack on Syria

Israel fired missiles at Syrian territory. Two people have died in an Israeli missile attack on Syria.

This was reported by the press service of the Syrian Ministry of Defense.



Although the Syrian air defense forces managed to intercept most of the ammunition, some of it did cause damage. There is destruction, two civilians were killed in the vicinity of Damascus.

Our air defense systems responded to enemy missiles and shot down most of them

- said in a statement.

Local news agency SANA suggests that the targets of the attack were the capital's airport and southeast Damascus. The defense department says that the IDF attacked the south of Syria and the outskirts of its capital. The missiles were launched from the Golan Heights, which belong to the Syrian Arab Republic and are under Israeli occupation.

Before that, the Syrian Ministry of Defense reported that the Israeli air defense forces repelled a missile attack by the Israeli army, the purpose of which was Damascus. Last week, three similar Israeli attacks on Syrian territory were recorded.

Actually, IDF strikes in Syria are not uncommon. Most often, they are directed against Iranian facilities in the country, as well as against pro-Iranian groups operating on Syrian soil. In Tel Aviv, they explain their actions by saying that they allegedly impede the supply weapons armed groups supported by Tehran.

          If the roof is blown away, then they simply will not receive equipment from anywhere. and with Uzis and Galils and Merkavas alone, they won’t fight much. They only modernize standard American weapons for themselves. But, we must give them their due, they do it very well.

          PS For the most part, the commentators are right - it's enough to read how Israel jumps on Iran, then Syria, then Palestine. I want them to get "on the head" for their aggressiveness.

            So do not read the biased and one-sided presentation of information. Such an article is a clear example of double standards and twisting facts in order to create the necessary narrative, just like the Western media do it against the Russian Federation.
            Propaganda and brainwashing.

            You are confusing cause with effect, this "aggressiveness" serves the purpose of "not getting hit in the head" from enemies who are just striving for this.
            Iran is trying to create a foothold in Syria to attack Israel, and if Israel stops the strikes, it will eventually get this attack. Dialogue with Iran is also not possible, Iran is not ready for it in principle, and the rest are its puppets, and they themselves do not decide anything.

        Hmmm ... So you think - was it worth creating this state for the "poor persecuted" Jews?
        Maybe Birobidzhan would somehow be enough for them, huh?

          Israel was created by Jewish refugees from the end of the 19th century, and by the year 47 had a complete state infrastructure and institutions of power.
          Even if the UN vote failed, the country would still not go anywhere, it would simply exist in the status of the same Taiwan.
          So the only ones whose opinion matters about the fact of the creation of Israel is the opinion of its creators, and they were not noticed in doubt.

        PS I am amused by the fact that in Russia these individuals were very zealously baptized on camera in Orthodox Churches, probably in Israel now they cook matzah just as zealously and go to the synagogue? Well, they got Israeli citizenship not just for beautiful eyes. So it turns out that in Russia they drove bullshit - they deceived everyone that they were Orthodox?

            And to whom can they drive something in Israel? It is in the Russian Federation that they are "famous personalities", in Israel they are nobody. They do not have media weight, the locals do not even know about their existence.

      In the modern world, this is not a measure of strength.

      Why do Iran and Syria tolerate this?

      Iran - because it is precisely these blows that knock out what he could answer with.
      Syria - because it does not want to become a bargaining chip in the Iranian-Israeli showdown, it is more than already forced to participate in them, it is simply not profitable for it.

      Quote: Atlant-1164
      not Iran or Syria bombing "Ben Gurion" ..

      This is precisely what Iran is striving for, trying to create a springboard for such attacks in Syria, and it is these attempts that stop the airstrikes.
      And Syria simply has no choice, since it cannot do anything against the will of Tehran.
      If Assad bucks, the Iranians will simply bang him and put a new puppet in the presidential chair.

    Perfect option.
    Putin supplies S-400s to Iran and Syria in exchange for Israeli UAVs and agrees with Iran that it will leave Israel alone.

    Israel is taking advantage of the situation in Ukraine, realizing that Russia will not raise the stakes in Syria until it ends in Ukraine. Well, another element of blackmail: if you help Syria and Iran, we will start supplying weapons to Ukraine.

      The world does not revolve around you. Your local war is the last thing Israel takes into account in its actions to ensure its own security.

      Russia will not raise the stakes in Syria

      Russia, in principle, cannot raise any stakes in Syria, regardless of the showdown with Kiev. That is why it concluded a number of agreements with Israel on Syria, because there is no alternative, physically no.

      1. The Russian Federation does not have the logistical capacities to project a force capable of at least something to oppose Israel in its own backyard, 3000 km from its own borders. Khmeimim is the ceiling of possibilities, a dozen aircraft, a couple of air defense batteries and 3-4 thousand people, that's about nothing.
      And this is on the condition that there is absolutely no opposition on routes, like Iran, for example, which has been unable to pull anything closer than a truck with cartridges closer than 1000 km to Israel intact for more than 10 years.

      2. In addition, the Kremlin is well aware that Israel will not make any concessions in matters of its own security. For the Russian Federation, these are "geopolitical show-offs", and show-offs are good as long as they are not expensive, but for Israel it is a matter of "life and death", and therefore the price no longer plays any role.

      And isn't that fair? Bash for bash and an eye for an eye, everything is crystal clear.
