BEIRUT (Reuters) - Syrian military air defences downed several missiles that Israel fired in an act of "aggression" near Damascus airport on Saturday, Syrian state media said.

 

An Israeli military spokeswoman said Israel does not comment on foreign reports.

 

During the more than seven-year conflict in neighbouring Syria, Israel has grown deeply alarmed by the expanding clout of its arch enemy Iran - a key ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

 

Israel's air force has struck scores of targets it describes as Iranian deployments or arms transfers to Lebanon's Iran-backed Hezbollah movement in the war.

 

"Our air defence systems thwarted an Israeli missile aggression on Damascus International Airport," Syrian state news agency SANA cited a military source as saying.

 

Witnesses at a major trade fair in the capital Damascus said they saw flares shooting up into the night sky.

Israel violates Syria’s sovereignty and international law by bombing Damascus and no one bats an eyelid. But the legitimate, secular Syrian government moves to retake its own land from Al-Qaeda in Idlib & the whole world goes mad.

 

Reality bites. But then again, even Russia (Assad's main backer) doesn't seem too phased. Wonder how that fits with the usual pro-Russian stance. And, of course, it wasn't "Damascus" (as in the city) which was bombed, but, apparently, military facilities of a hostile third-party.

 

Most of the people in Idlib are Syrians, and the land is their "own land" as well.

Israel would retaliate with atomic weapons (there are estimates that the count is 400 war heads) and the world is not ready for that

At some point, the Syrians and Russians along with Jordan and Egypt should just go into Israel and get it over with. Return land to the Palestinians and we will have world peace, at least in the MEast.

 

'nuff said. Let the fireworks begin. LOL

If You are hating the jews, why do you are not allowing them an independent country, to live on their own? Why do You want to disperse them along the world? At Israel they can defend themselves from the pogroms, and robbers. Or maybe You should like to rob some jews?

Maybe the Syrians and Russians will also get help from the Guardians of the Galaxy, esp. with those nukes.

All out war in the Middle East is doubtful. There is nothing to be gained by it. Perhaps in the future the situation could change but for now Israel has all the chips
