Israel targets Syrian artillery positions & ammunitions truck in second incident in 2 days

https://www.rt.com/news/394026-israel-targets-syria-truck/

The IDF struck two artillery launchers and an ammunition truck on the Syrian side of the border after “several Syrian projectiles” landed in Israeli territory without causing any casualties. A similar incident occurred in the same Golan Heights region on Saturday.

“In response to several Syrian projectiles launched towards Israel, IDF targeted 2 Syrian regime artillery positions & an ammunitions truck,” the Israel Defense Forces tweeted on their official feed on Sunday afternoon.

The tweet came three hours after the IDF said Syrian projectiles had “hit an open area in the northern Golan Heights,” while noting that “no injuries were reported.”

Earlier on Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that even shells reaching Israeli territory accidentally would be met with a swift retribution.

“Our policy is clear: We will not tolerate any spillover or trickle whatsoever – neither mortars nor rockets, from any front,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his Cabinet on Sunday, vowing “we will respond strongly to any attack on our territory or our citizens,” according to the AP.

On Saturday, the IDF ordered an airstrike less than an hour after about 10 stray shells landed on Israel’s side of the border near Quneitra, where President Assad’s forces are battling Al-Nusra Front militants. Israel said that two tanks were destroyed.

Citing military sources, Syria’s SANA state news agency reported: “Israeli warplanes attacked services facilities and residential buildings… claiming a number of lives and causing material damage.”

Israel does not openly participate in the Syrian conflict, but since 2013 it has carried out several officially unacknowledged air strikes on its neighbor’s territory. According to Israeli officials, these have targeted the weapons supply routes of the Hezbollah militant movement, Israel’s Lebanon-based adversary.

In March, Syria said that it had launched anti-aircraft missiles aimed at Israeli military jets after they conducted airstrikes near the city of Palmyra, and were returning to base. Syrian media reported that one plane was downed, but Israel denied any losses.

According to the IDF, one of the Syrian projectiles was itself intercepted by an Israeli Arrow-2 missile, prompting Israel to disclose that its planes were operating in foreign airspace.

      At the time of the settlement, US justice officials said the company and its subsidiaries had paid millions of dollars in bribes and failed to implement a system of internal controls that would have prevented bribery. The company was charged under the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

  2. US is Hostage of Zionist Extremists

    We are just bystanders to an internecine Jewish conflict which determines our fate. 
    You’ve never heard of Vladimir Jabotinsky, left, (1880-1940) but he may be the reason the world is
    veering toward world war. He is the founder of Zionist Revisionism which was the 
    anti socialist, i.e “right wing” of Zionism which controls Israel and is responsible for Donald Trump’s election. 

    Jabotinsky’s goal was ”to turn the Jewish people into a leading power on the international scene.”
    Benjamin Netanyahu echoed this sentiment when he said “Israel is a rising global power.”  
    His father, Ben Zion Netanyahu (1910-2002) was Jabotinsky’s Secretary.

    What can be learned from the Israeli media is that over the past 16 months, Netanyahu has made four state visits to Moscow the last of which, in June, 2016, featured the handing over to Israel of an American-made Israeli tank that had been abandoned by its crew during a battle with Syrian forces during Israel’s 1982 invasion of Lebanon.
    It was then sent to Russia for examination and has since been exhibited at a military museum in Moscow. Netanyahu had requested the return of the tank at an earlier meeting between the two in Moscow that April. There was no indication whether or not Syria had been consulted.
    The report about the return of the tank was reported in the New York Times (6/6/16) under the byline of Isabel Kershner, the paper’s longtime senior correspondent in Israel. It was one of the rare mentions in the media of the “growing cooperation” between the two countries.

    Kershner noted the large number of Russian Israelis from the old Soviet Union who are receiving pensions from Moscow—there are over a million in Israel–but her article largely focused on the desire on the part of Israelis to learn what had happened to three Israeli soldiers who had been part of the tank’s crew and had abandoned it.
    What Kershner failed to mention were the most important results of Netanyahu’s visit.
    According to Israel Defense News and the intelligence site, the debka file, the two leaders decided at their June 7 meeting to deepen the military ties between the Russian and Israeli armed forces which, citing reports from military and intelligence sources, led to speculation that “the historic  decision spells the end of the IDF’s unique relationship with the US military.”

    That remains to be seen, but further, according to the report, Putin and Netanyahu decided that a joint exercise by the Israeli and Russian naval and air forces will be held this summer as part of the first stage of expanded ties. If they go through with these exercises, keeping that out of the US press will present quite a challenge.
    The bilateral decision for the joint war game was reportedly tied to an agreement to allow Russian gas companies to compete for contracts to develop offshore natural gas fields claimed by Israel, confirming what Netanyahu had said in Moscow, that “Our doors are open now to all companies from all countries that have substantial experience in developing gas fields, including Russia of course.”

  6. According to this report,
    Putin had tried repeatedly to win a foothold for Russian companies, especially energy giant Gazprom, in the development of Israel’s offshore gas fields and export industry.
    The Russian leader tried to convince Netanyahu by saying that the presence of the Russian navy and air force in the area would guarantee that no Arab or Muslim military force, such as those of Iran, Syria and Hizballah (sic), would attack the gas fields.
    In October of 2015, shortly after Russia entered the Syrian conflict, Ha’aretz’s military correspondent Anshel Pfeffer, analyzed the Netanyahu-Putin relationship in an article, entitled, “Israel’s Hushed Military Ties with Russia Now Paying Off.”
    Noting that the Pentagon was refusing to hold “de-confliction” talks with the Russian Defense Ministry to coordinate the two nations’ air-operations over Syria and would make do with just “technical details,” Pfeffer wrote:
    The fact that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu requested, and received, a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, immediately when the Russian deployment to Syria began, should not come as a surprise.
    Despite Israel’s strategic ties with the United States, both sides have maintained a discreet and intimate security relationship which is much closer than meets the eye.
    Israel received from Putin in 2008 advance warning of Russia’s plans to attack Georgia, in a personal meeting he had with former president Shimon Peres at the Beijing Olympics opening ceremony. This enabled Israel to call back in time private defense contractors and advisers who were working at the time with the Georgian army.”

    If you are with me so far, you will see a different picture emerging of both Netanyahu and Putin than what one finds in the US media. For those who have been led to see the Israeli prime minister as a staunch friend and ally of the United States, the evidence paints him as more of an opportunist who takes full advantage of the power of the Jewish political and religious establishment in the United States to lead its politicians around by the nose while milking its taxpayers for everything he can get. To cite his own words, he finds America “easy to move.”
    Putin was compared by Hillary Clinton to Hitler following Russia’s annexation of Crimea in response to what was clearly a US orchestrated coup in Ukraine directed at reviving NATO and taking it to Russia’s doorstep. His subsequent actions are those of a nationalist leader trying to stymie Washington’s efforts at another regime change, his, and his alliance with Netanyahu as with his successful restoring of relations with Turkey’s Recipe Erdogan is a sign of that . This, by the same measure, led him to prefer Trump who praised him as a strong leader to the point where some have accused him of being a Russian agent or Putin’s Manchurian Candidate for refusing to step back from that position.
    It is a bizarre situation beyond anyone’s imagination and may give the concept of a menage a trois a whole new meaning.
