The Israeli military has carried out airstrikes on a number of military targets inside Syria in response to a cross-border attack that left an Israeli teenager dead, authorities have said. In a statement early on Monday, the military said nine targets were struck and “direct hits were confirmed.” “Yesterday’s attack was an unprovoked act of aggression against Israel, and a direct continuation to recent attacks that occurred in the area,” said Peter Lerner, a military spokesman, referring to the death of a 15-year-old boy in the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights in a mortar attack launched from neighbouring Syria.

Sounds like the Israelis hit them pretty hard, with more to come if the Syrians and the Hezbollah fanatics don't get the message.

It doesn’t make any sense for the government of Syria to attack Israel.

No, it doesn't. Guess the rebels have now figured out they can get Israel to do their dirty work by launching a few mortars into Israel According to the article:

......"But Israel said it held Damascus responsible for any attacks emanating from its territory, and claimed Sunday’s attack was intentional."...........

Yes, it does. Everyone hates Israel. Pulling them into the war would serve others interest.

The story obscures who exactly was hit. Was it Assad or was it some Islamists?

Here’s the story from JPost: http://www.jpost.com/Defense/IAF-strikes-targets-in-Syria-in-response-to-cross-border-missile-attack-360222

Note that the Israeli teenager the Syrians killed in the rocket attack was a muslim arab.

do their dirty work

I thought that initially as well, that the rebels could try to trick Israel into retaliating against Syrian government installations. But I suspect we can usually rely on the Israelis to know what they're targeting. I haven't seen any claims of responsibility; that would change matters. I did see one theory that it was Hezbollah, an ally of Assad's.

It remained unclear whether the Syrian military or rebels had carried out the attack.

But Israel said it held Damascus responsible for any attacks emanating from its territory, and claimed Sunday’s attack was intentional.
+++++++++++++++++++++++
They hit nine targets, are holding Damascus responsible, but it isn’t clear, at least from this story, who they hit. The Israelis can pivot way faster than we can and I’d not be surprised that they hit targets that 1. helped Israel and 2. kept the enemy guessing.

Stability in the ME is best for everyone involved, but if you’re going to have jihadis killing people, let it be jihadi on jihadi death. That’s a win-win for civilization.

Has hussein stopped funding to Israel, so ISIS can be properly armed?

He’s already made sure of that.

He’s emptied Iraq of the ability to fight the terrorists back.

ISIS has taken over at least 2 Syria/Iraq border areas and have been moving the armaments (tanks munitions etc etc) to Syria.

Just like the dems put off the first time we went into Iraq to give Saddamm time to send all of his WMD’s and other armaments to Syria back then. Plus semi’s full of millions and millions of $’s of US cash. (Same ‘ol same ‘ol)

Now they are taking (or trying to) take over border areas of Syria and Jordan.

It makes perfect sense. They killed one A-rab kid and all it cost them was 9 military installations destroyed and who knows how many killed and wounded. Its genius!

Agreed, except it said Israel held Damsascus responsible regardless, so I assume Assad paid the price.

The way those guys shed names over there, I don’t take ISIS to mean much in the way of change. It’s still al Qaeda. It’s like the Democrats changing from Leftists to Progressives.

Sure there are beheadings now. So what has changed?

Daniel Pearl anyone?

It’s like musical chairs with names over there. PLO, Hezbollah, Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda, Taliban, ISIS, ISIL...

The only thing we know for sure, is that within six months there will be other factions claiming to be a new entity. I still think they are the same entity.

The only other constant is that Obama will have armed or given the entity financial support just before it blossoms.

Oddest thing. I remember seeing one air strike into Syria as it occurred, and there are usually constant military flyovers in Judah and Samaria. Skies have been quiet for days. It must be taking place well to the north, I suppose.

Thank you Lord Jesus for your people Israel and the blessings you bestow on those who bless Israel as well as the curse you curse those who hate Israel. Your nation Israel will be the Kingdom age leading nation when your dear Son and our God and Saviour Yeshua returns to the earth as King of Kings and Lord of lords, after the 7 year tribulation to bring in His 1000 year Kingdom age rule in Israel, whom you will use to bless the nations of the earth. Let those who love Jesus be blessed and those who hate Jesus Christ be defeated and run before Him seven ways.

[But Israel said it held Damascus responsible for any attacks emanating from its territory,...]

the city of Damascus houses some 7 variations of Islamic terrorists headquarters and will be destroyed and become a ruinous heap in due time, as the Scriptures clearly state.

Way too much instability throughout the ME now causing a great shift in populations....I think important to consider as ME leaders determine which nations they align with...which will now be affected by the change in their populations.

Jordon is in the cross hairs as well.... Just this past week SiSi of Egypt met with Saudi leadership....which also plays into this shift.

Israel has no choice but to be very guarded and strike quick and hard when threatened...it’s just so unstable there now and the Islamists would love nothing more than to provoke a war with Israel....

I’ve said for a long time that the Mid East re-shuffle won’t be complete until the Soddy Royals get their throats cut. They have been the source of the money for so much of the instability that the laws of nature require that they pay too.

Saudi is basically toe to toe against Iran in regards to the Caliphate and who will eventually be top dog. That’s why Saudi sends terrorist thugs into Syria....and so does Iran....Syria is important in both their agendas.

Now Iraq is in play once again...and of course would happen once Obam pulled our troops...you leave a void and the bad guys will always fight to fill it. Aphganistan too will go likewise.

Islamists/Muslims cannot and are not compatible with normal civilization nor will they ever be. Their entire view of life is through the Koran and the thuggery leaders who promote it...and why they are a miserable people.
