Israel hits Iranian force in Syria to stop 'killer drones' - military

* Drones were to attack northern Israel, military says

* Syrian army says it destroyed most of the Israeli missiles (Adds quotes by Israeli PM and military, background)

JERUSALEM/DAMASCUS, Aug 24 (Reuters) - Israeli aircraft on Saturday struck Iranian forces near Damascus that had been planning to launch "killer drones" at targets in Israel, an Israeli military spokesman said.

"The strike targeted Iranian Quds Force operatives and Shiite militias which were preparing to advance attack plans targeting sites in Israel from within Syria over the last number of days," the military said in a statement.

The elite Quds Force is the overseas arm of Iran's Revolutionary Guards (IRGC). Israeli military spokesman Jonathan Conricus told reporters the forces on Thursday had been preparing to launch "killer drones" armed with explosives at northern Israel.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the military had thwarted the planned Iranian attack. "Iran has no immunity anywhere. Our forces operate in every sector against the Iranian aggression," he said on Twitter.

Syrian state media said Syrian air defences intercepted "hostile targets" over Damascus, the capital, Saturday night.

Witnesses in Damascus said they heard and saw explosions in the sky.

"The aggression is ongoing and air defences are confronting hostile targets and are downing most of them in the southern region," state media outlet SANA said, indicating areas south of Damascus.

The Syrian army said in a statement that "the majority of the Israeli missiles were destroyed before reaching their targets." Conricus, however, said the impact of the Israeli strikes was "significant."

Israel says it has carried out hundreds of strikes in Syria against Iranian targets trying to establish a permanent military presence there and against advanced weapon shipments to Tehran-backed Lebanese militia Hezbollah.

Now Israel has to fight Iranian drones. Where did the Iranians get this technology?

Obama gave it to them, purposefully, and on a silver patter.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran%E2%80%93U.S._RQ-170_incident

On 10 December 2011, Iran announced that it intended to carry out reverse engineering on the captured RQ-170 Sentinel stealth aircraft.[6] In April 2012, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps claimed to have succeeded in extracting the entirety of the data collected by the drone and are currently in the process of building a replica of the aircraft.[33] Iran claimed to have been approached by countries, including China and Russia, seeking information on the drone.

China and Russia aided Iran in reverse engineering the technology. Furthermore, it was IMPOSSIBLE for Iran to "hack the software" of the drone so that it's GPS flew it into Iranian airspace. Obama purposely had it flown into Iranian airspace.

That "incident" alone is pure Treason.

Not only that, Obama gave the Iranians at least $150 Billion, that helped to finance their development of weapons.

Obama’s Treason: Even Worse Than We Thought - But Leftist Privilege will prevent him from ever being held accountable.

We’re sliding into an unwanted war, down a slippery slope. The US, too, and possibly the UK. Only viable way out is a free and independent Khuzestan.

From your source:

"It's a lie," said Mohsen Reza, a Revolutionary Guards official, "Israel and the US do not have the strength to attack Iranian bases, and none of them have been harmed."

Lol.

Even if the province of Khuzestan was independent, Iran would still pursue their religious goal of world nuclear war.

90% of their oil revenues would be gone. How would they finance their nuclear program.

The goal is not some oil or finance scheme, but world nuclear war to kill off millions or billions which will bring their 12th Imam out of the Well he climbed into 1000(?) years ago. He will then lead the glorious Islamic armies to conquer the world by killing everyone - with the last two living humans obliged to kill each other and so bringing everyone to Paradise ... The Iranian Mad Mullahs are called mad for a reason.

You are no longer in the Western world ... welcome to the Middle East.

Correct. They are Satanic. They worship Satan, and they are tools of Satan.

Sounds dramatic, doesn't it?

It's 100% true.

Key Word - religous.

As long as the Mullahs rule Iran, Iran will be at war with Israel.

The Korhaan demands that the faithful make war against and kill Jews. That a Jewish state exist is intolerable to the Mullahs. The Mullahs will starve their people if they must to make war against Israel.

The war with Iraq nearly wiped out a generation of Iranian youth. The war against Israel could wipe out half the population of Iran and the Mullahs wouldn’t blink because they would all be martyrs.

True. But Israel and the Jews are held up for special treatment in the Hadith. Mohammad had a special hatred for Jews.

Muhammad says that one day the very trees and stones will help Muslims to kill Jews

Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar: I heard Allah's Apostle [Muhammad] saying, "The Jews will fight with you, and you will be given victory over them so that a stone will say, 'O Muslim! There is a Jew behind me; kill him!' "

Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar: Allah's Apostle said, "You (i.e. Muslims) will fight with the Jews till some of them will hide behind stones. The stones will (betray them) saying, 'O 'Abdullah (i.e. slave of Allah)! There is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him.' "

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."

It’s in there a few more times so Muhammad must of told a lot of his followers that ‘Jews be bad’

The point is not that Israel is special, just that Israel is the closest - Rome is next, then NYC - despite what Mo may or may not have said - it is what the Mullahs desire that is the point and world wide nuclear war is their aim - Israel is just in the way as is the Catholic Church (of which Frankie is making nice with the musselmen even suggesting a unification), and the US.
