Posted on 06/23/2014 8:41:58 AM PDT by incpak
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. Yesterdays 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.

MY HERO’S ..LOVE THOSE BRAVE PEOPLE..
It doesn’t make any sense for the government of Syria to attack Israel.
this is how you do it...
Welcome to Free Republic
G_d be with you Israel.
>>It doesnt make any sense for the government of Syria to attack Israel.<<
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?
It’s from a Pakistani website
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.
ISIS is rapidly becoming the Nazis of the Mid East.
ISIS would make Al Qaida look like SAINTS.
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 Sundays 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!
Good news for a change! #standwithisrael!
UN: “ the UN condemns Israel by protecting it’s self in all harsh terms “ sarcasm.
Or is that the cover story?
Originated in the middle east ... and well understood elsewhere.
Ona a serious note : Go Get ‘em Bibi. Kick their arses...
I take it you’re talking about the Israelis.
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.

The People’s Front of Judea or the Judean People’s Front?
Monty Python have been all over this idea since 1979.
[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.
Can you re-translate that to “ two eyes for one?” That’s how I live my own life. Screw with me, my family, my stuff, or my life and I will do my ever lovin’ best to make the payment double at least.-—Semper Fi
Am I the only one who notices that Syria/Asshat never complains or even admits getting smacked? Takes a lot of humility to avoid squealing at least a little?
God’s purpose for President Bush taking us over there seems to have been for our soldiers to take some of the heat that Israeli women and children would otherwise get.
Way to go, Marine. I’re read about Chesty Puller and recommend that people read the book “Chesty” to really know what being a Marine is about.
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.
