Israel Bombs Syrian Military....... again!

The target was a chemical plant that the Israeli’s claim was making chemical weapons and as usual claim it as self defence! I can’t help wondering what the West’s response would be if Assad/Russia planted a couple of cruise missiles into the Israeli’s nuclear/chemical/biological plant at Dimona in the Negev Desert?

I didn’t see any mention in the WMSM although RT and Sputnik did cover it.

Israel Bombs Syrian Military Positions, Killing Two Army Personnel By SANA

September 07, 2017 "Information Clearing House" - Damascus, SANA-General Command of the Army and Armed Forces affirmed that the Israeli warplanes fired several rockets from the Lebanese airspace at 02:42 a.m. on Thursday targeting one of the Syrian military positions near Massyaf in Hama countryside , killing two army personnel and causing material damage to the site.

“This aggression comes in a desperate attempt to raise the collapsed morale of the ISIS terrorists after the sweeping victories achieved by the Syrian Arab Army against terrorism at more than one front, and it affirms the direct support provided by the Israeli entity to the ISIS and other terrorist organizations,” the Army Command said in a statement.

The Command warned against the dangerous repercussions of such hostile acts on the security and stability of the region, reiterating determination to eliminate terrorism and uproot it from all the Syrian territories whatever the type of support provided to these terrorist groups is.

I admit I didn't 'search' for the story it came to me by e-mail. But I rarely read these papers, certainly not for accurate or detailed reports .... too much propaganda (try reading them) although The Guardian was more related to the incident than the other two were.

So your statement "I didn’t see any mention in the WMSM" was true, because you hadn't even looked.

Well .... there you have it, I was right as I didn't search every source. It's so easy to believe anything when you restrict your sources of information but I did look at a few more of the 'normal' UK MSM news sources and it wasn't covered. :wink:

I told you many times that peace will not return to Syria. The Syrian war has many years left in it without a political settlement. The deal that has occurred, is only a ceasefire brokered by Russia and Turkey.

First of all, the YPG is excluded, so Turkey plans to wager its war. Islamic State and Al Nusra are also excluded.

And the Regime just bombed a Damascus suburb minutes after the ceasefire was declared against groups that were supposedly included in the deal.

And on top of all that, you have Hezbollah.

Famous last words by General Paphitis !!!
I hope he now realizes how dreadfully wrong he has been and not as he stated " I'm always right "

Oh dear you silly people. Whether you gauge that we have lost or not is rather subjective. Saying that Assad has the upper hand militarily over some 2 bit rebels is certainly no victory over the coalition, SDF or the Peshmerga (where coalition is concentrating efforts).

Here are a few facts as to why the coalition hasn't lost.

FACT 1: Syria and Assad's Military capacity is virtually a shadow of its former self and has been destroyed and is no longer a threat to us or Israel.
FACT 2: The Israeli's are still bombing chemical weapons facilities in Syria under Coalition protection.
FACT 3: Coalition Air Operations are still occurring within Syrian Airspace with impunity and there isn't a thing anyone can do about it.
FACT 4: Coalition is still supplying arms to SDF (Assyrian and Kurdish) and Peshmerga militants.
FACT 5: SDF and Peshmerga still control about 35% of Syria and there is no attempt so far by Assad to change that. Wonder why?
FACT 6: Coalition will still operate inside Syria until Raqqa is liberated from ISIL.
FACT 7: Assad has given ISIL an Amnesty (because he is a terrorist fucker and a war criminal). A Convoy of 300 ISIL fighters were given safe passage through Syria right under Assad's forces and Hezbollah, to join up with other ISIL units near Raqqa to fight Coalition backed forces. They were all killed by Coalition Aircraft within 1 hour. Only a dozen or so survived the first barrage (no Amnesty from the Coalition it would seem).
FACT 8: Coalition gives no Amnesty to any terrorists.
FACT 9: Syria is a Pariah State like North Korea. The Assad administration is not recognized by the vast majority of States as virtually the entire world (minus 3 or 4 countries) are on the Coalition's side. That means, Syria will be under strict embargoes and isolation from the International Community until Assad is bought to justice. Remember Cuba? Look at North Korea too. That is Syria's future. They have no future.
FACT 10: there are still dozens of militant groups operating in Syria, and this "mop up" is likely to last several years.

Oh and that includes Cyprus. There will be no State visits of Assad to Cyprus or any trade between Cyprus and Syria either because Cyprus is an EU country and has to do what its EU Masters tell it to do. The EU and the Americans are virtually one and the same and that includes the Coalition.

Only thing going on your side is that Assad has managed to stay in power. But don't let that fool you. Situation is very fluid and we are waiting.

You've won NOTHING at all. Just maintained Assad as a Government of an utter shit hole and a couple of bases for the Russians which we do not care about anyway.

You want to see a real victory (which the coalition will never gloat about because of sectarian sensitivities), then I refer you all to IRAQ. Proof that the Coalition's approach was correct all along.

GOODBYE AGAIN! One of post just to educate you all about your very HOLLOW "VICTORY". Consider it a one off as I'm extremely far to busy to be discussing such matters with Children. And when I say children, I mean the likes of the senile Miltiades and Hoodwinked with his Information Clearing House and Black Listed News conspiracy links (which I will never read until hell freezes over).

You would think that for guys with one foot in the grave, you would do something more constructive such as play Golf or something. Poor sods!
