Israel strikes 9 military targets in Syria

Nine Syrian military targets have been hit by Israeli jets and guided missiles, the IDF says, claiming it was a decisive response to a series of cross-border shootings to protect the citizens of Israel.

The strikes on targets in Golan Heights were carried out shortly after midnight, Haaretz reports citing an IDF official, who called it a direct response to Sunday’s deadly incident when an anti-tank projectile fired from Syrian territory struck near the border fence on the Israeli occupied Golan Heights.

“The shooting [on Sunday] was a very serious act of provocation, and a continuation of a series of attacks carried out over the past several months against IDF forces throughout the border region, and in this area specifically,” the statement reads.

A military command headquarters reportedly was among the targets hit in Syria.

Earlier on Sunday, in response to the killing of Israeli teen Mohammed Karaka, IDF artillery pounded military outposts on Syrian territory, with speculations about possible strikes against other targets.

The killed teenager was an Arab citizen of Israel, accompanying his father, a Defense Ministry civilian contractor, to the Golan, the ministry said, uncertain whether the boy was 15 or 13 years old. The father and two more people we injured in the incident.


It was not clear who exactly fired the anti-tank missile that hit the Israeli border from an area contested by the Syrian army and the rebels.

Relations between Syria and Israel have been tense since the civil war erupted in the country more than three years ago.

Ripped by internal warring factions, numerous cross-border shooting and shelling have become a common occurrence in the Israeli controlled Golan Heights, which Tel Aviv secured following the Yom Kippur War of 1973.

IDF aerial retaliatory strikes were reported in January 2013, when Israeli planes allegedly struck deep within Syrian territory, reportedly targeting anti-aircraft weaponry outside Damascus.

Israeli warplanes also struck a Syrian air-defense base near the port city of Latakia in October 2013, as confirmed by US officials, with some experts speculating that the target was missile equipment that may have been transferred to Lebanese Hezbollah.

In May 2013, Syrian media reported "Israeli airstrikes" targeting military positions in Damascus, following bombing in Rif Dimashq governorate. In July 2013, RT reported that Israel used a Turkish military base to launch one of its recent airstrikes against Syria from the sea, a week after July 5 depot attack in Latakia.

The Israeli military has carried out air strikes on targets inside Syria, including a military headquarters, in response to a cross-border attack that left an Israeli teenager dead.

In all, Israel said it struck nine military targets inside Syria, and "direct hits were confirmed."

The targets were located near the site of Sunday's violence in the Golan Heights and included a regional military command centre and unspecified "launching positions." There was no immediate response from Syria.

In Sunday's attack, an Israeli civilian vehicle was struck by forces in Syria as it drove in the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights.

A teenage boy was killed and two other people were wounded in the first deadly incident along the volatile Israeli-Syrian front since Syria's civil war erupted more than three years ago.

The Israeli vehicle was delivering water as it was doing contract work for Israel's defence ministry when it was struck.

"Yesterday's attack was an unprovoked act of aggression against Israel, and a direct continuation to recent attacks that occurred in the area," said Lt Col Peter Lerner, a military spokesman.

He said the military "will not tolerate any attempt to breach Israel's sovereignty and will act in order to safeguard the civilians of the state of Israel".

The sudden burst of violence has added to the tense situation in Israel, where forces have spent the past week and a half in a broad ground operation in the West Bank in search of three teenage boys believed to have been abducted by Hamas militants.

Israel has carefully monitored the fighting in Syria, but has generally kept its distance and avoided taking sides.

On several occasions, mortar shells and other types of fire have landed on the Israeli side of the de facto border, drawing limited Israeli reprisals.

Israel is also believed to have carried out several airstrikes on arms shipments it believed to be headed from Syria to Hezbollah militants in neighbouring Lebanon.

It was not immediately clear whether Syrian troops or one of the many rebel groups battling the government carried out Sunday's deadly attack in the Golan. Lerner said it was clear that the attack was intentional.

Israel has repeatedly said it holds the Syrian government responsible for any attacks emanating from its territory, regardless of who actually carries them out.

Israel captured the Golan Heights, a strategic plateau overlooking northern Israel, from Syria in the 1967 Middle East war. Israel's annexation of the area has never been recognised internationally.

The incident occurred in the area of Tel Hazeka, near the Quneitra crossing. The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Syrian troops had shelled nearby targets on the Syrian border earlier in the day.

Israeli police identified the boy as Mohammed Karaka, 14, of the Arab village of Arraba in northern Israel. Local media said he had accompanied his father, the truck driver, to work.

Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he spoke to the boy's father and sent his condolences. "Our enemies don't differentiate between Jews and non-Jews, adults and children," he told an international gathering of Jewish journalists.

Netanyahu said in conflicts like Syria, where al-Qaida-inspired extremists are battling Iranian-backed Syrian troops, there is no good choice and it is best for Israel to sit back and let its enemies weaken each other. "This is a fault line between civilisation and savagery," he said.

hmm
So Israel doesn't know who was responsible for the attack on land it illegally occupies, yet it nevertheless attacks Syrian army positions in "retaliation" for the attack.

It also declares that it will hold the Syrian government "responsible" for all attacks emanating from Syrian territory on Israeli-occupied territory, while also ensuring the world that Israel does not distinguish between Western-backed jihadists' attacking the Syrian state, with the support of the West and Israel, and the "Iranian-backed Syrian troops" defending the state against these monsters.

Israel has, of course, attacked Syrian army positions multiple times throughout this conflict, but this, we should believe, isn't because of any preference on the part of Israel for jihadists in the conflict. Similarly, when multiple news agencies, including Israeli, report the existence of Israeli-run hospitals in the Golan Heights used to treat injured jihadists, this again isn't proof of Israel's siding with the jihadists against the Syrian government.

I assume, too, that when the jihadists repeatedly express a desire for the establishment of an Islamic caliphate in Syria and for the extermination of non-believer minority groups throughout the land, this also shouldn't be viewed as an indication of the jihadists possibly being a worse option of the two sides in the conflict or an indication of the jihadists' being the more "savage" of the two sides in the fighting, since, to quote the venerable Nentayahu in typical double-speak, "there is no good choice [in this conflict] and its best for Israel to sit back [sic] and let its enemies weaken each other"...

Like a page out of GWB's 9-11 handbook.
It has been shown that Israel and Saudi Arabia have been funding some of these anti-Assad groups.. so they take no responsibility for that?

They don't have to, since hey can count on the Western media to keep the issue hush...
netanyahu's advice to Obama:

"What you're seeing in the Middle East today in Iraq and in Syria is the stark hatreds between radical Shi'ites, in this case led by Iran, and radical Sunnis led by al Qaeda and ISIS and others," Netanyahu told the NBC program "Meet the Press."

"Now, both of these camps are enemies of the United States. And when your enemies are fighting each other, don't strengthen either one of them. Weaken both," he urged.


BIBI is afraid US and Iran will work together to contain Isis I guess?

the whole thing is a clusterfuck.. it may be out of control at this point.

All of this policy -- the destruction of the region -- has been to benefit Israel and the Saudis, but firstly Israel...

Obama is the perennial puppet and prostitute of Zionism and the U.S. military establishment; he can drag his feet, and play possum, all he wants, but the fact remains that Netanyahu is more powerful than Obama is, truth be told, and people like Obama, and the various bureaucrats working in Washington, serve the interest of Nentanyahu's
people, not the reverse.
well to be fair Obama has kind of contained Israel as well. his insistence on the 1967 borders was a clear warning to Israel.

that is why so many neocons hate Obama.
