Breaking Report: Israel Jets Bomb Syrian Weapons Compound
Gateway Pundit ^ | April 30, 2013 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 04/30/2013 1:29:52 PM PDT by Hojczyk

Israeli Defense Forces held surprise military drills today near the Lebanon border with over 2,000 soldiers.

Israeli Jets reportedly entered Syrian airspace and bombed a chemical weapons compound near Damascus this morning. The UPI reported:

The Free Syrian Army says Israeli air force jets flew over President Bashar Assad’s palace and bombed a chemical weapons site near Damascus, Maariv reported.

The report said Israeli jets entered Syrian airspace close to 6 a.m Saturday and flew over Assad’s palace in Damascus and other security facilities before striking a chemical weapons compound near the city.

The Hebrew language daily said a Syrian army air defense battery positioned in the city fired at the Israeli jets, but the aircraft left Syrian airspace unscathed. FSA rebels posted a video showing smoke rising from the headquarters for chemical weapons.

There were no reports of the extent of damage or casualties.

Neither Damascus nor Jerusalem responded to the report.

I hope they gave him the single digit salute as they streaked overhead.

Bibi didn’t waste time commenting on Jason Collins and sodomy...he took care of business.

Thanks for being a world leader with a pair, Bibi. God bless you. Maybe when you’re done running Israel, you’ll come over here and teach leadership skills to American politicians.

UMMMM Little help here... “ The report said Israeli jets entered Syrian airspace close to 6 a.m Saturday and flew over Assad’s palace in Damascus and other security facilities before striking a chemical weapons compound near the city.”

Saturday? As in LAST saturday or is this a Prophetic report? How in the freak could this have happened a few days ago without us hearing it?

This was reported earlier, both the build up exercise
and the over flight and bombing.

I think a daisy-cutter is technically a ‘drill’. Or maybe an auger. So they had an auger over Assad. Works for me.

Maybe a “bunker-buster.” Whatever the Israeli Air Force does is fine with me. As “Sultan Knish” has pointed out, there’s no good side in Syria ... it’s Boy Assad or worse.

I strongly suspect he gave top Israelis a wink and a nod during his recent visit. If he says anything bad about the Israeli attack it will probably be for show, not for real.

In all seriousness, the radar Putin sold Syria can’t detect missiles going after a Russian commercial airliner, and can’t detect IAF dropping bombs... I’d be calling the returns phone number on the packing lists.

Exactly...It was almost unbelievable that two missiles were launched at an airliner and the airliner maneuvered and they missed.
