Israel Warns It Will Destroy Syria's Air Defenses "Without Thinking Twice"

"Israel's direct involvement in the Syrian conflict could be the flying ember that sets the region ablaze."

                         BY TYLER ROGOWAYMARCH 20, 2017


After six years of fighting, the chances that Israel may wade into the maelstrom that is the Syrian civil war is increasing after two more Israeli airstrikes rocked Syria over the weekend. One of the strikes was delivered Sunday via drone against a truck traveling between the Golan Heights and Damascus. One of the two people killed supposedly had close military ties to the Assad regime. The other strike came overnight and was rumored to have been aimed at another Hezbollah weapons convoy.

These strikes follow an early Friday morning Israel air raid that targeted a Hezbollah weapons transfer in southern Syria. That mission resulted in Syrian surface-to-air missile batteries firing on Israeli jets. At least one Syrian SA-5 SAM was intercepted by Israel's Arrow anti-ballistic missile system during the volley. The engagement was the first time the Arrow system has ever been used in combat. Now, Israel's Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman has clearly warned Syria of what will come if another missile is fired at an IAF jet, stating: "The next time the Syrians use their air defense systems against our airplanes, we will destroy all of them without thinking twice."

Syria has s-200s in that area. They need to upgrade to S-400.

S-400 in Syria is defending Russian assets. Golan Heights region is S-200.

I love the Russian People. They are so innovative. Until Trump smartens up  - I still consider Putin the Leader of the Free World.

I'd love to see the entire Israeli air force annihilated - but then again, we American tax-payers paid for it & our corrupt govt will just buy them more planes. +1 for the MIC (military industrial complex)

I wondered why was Syria was a target for the Zionists and when it was discovered that Golan Heights has vast reserves of oil, I knew why.

Exactly Burbia, they've been stealing Syrian oil in the Golan Heights for years. They gave drilling rights to Cheney's Halliburton.

Do they actually, ever think twice?

Comment by Sweettina2 on March 28, 2017 at 2:45pm

Deep Space, I'm with you. It seems Putin is espousing all that I believe. Russia is fed up with "containment" and NATO expansion. IsraAmerica is determined to push for war.

Less Prone- nope, if they'd thought twice surely they'd know their first idea wasn't too good. Blinded by money and power.
