BREAKING: Israel Attacked, Warplanes Respond…

The Syrian Civil War continues to expand into a full-scale regional conflict. As evidence of this, the Israeli Defense Forces just launched a strike targeting fighters inside of Syrian territory.

On Friday afternoon, Israel struck back after two rockets fired from Syria landed in the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights. On the same day, a mortar strike also fell in Golan. In response, the Israelis struck a military position in Quneitra.

While Israeli media remains somewhat silent about who caused the first attack, the official agency of Syria, SANA, claims that the Israelis hit a military site under the control of President Bashar al-Assad’s Syrian Arab Army.

Further, the SAA asserted that the Israeli strike was an act of “aggression” that only caused “material damage.”

This is far from the first time that Israel has become involved in the Syrian Civil War. Tel Aviv, which considers both Assad and his Hezbollah allies as major threats, frequently lobs shells or conducts airstrikes in order to keep Assad from transferring advanced weapon systems to Hezbollah.

Today, the area around the Golan Heights continues to be a scene of fighting between the Syrian government and various rebel factions, most of which are hardcore Islamists.

Israeli commandos have been caught on camera crossing over into Syria in order to drag the wounded or dying from the battlefield.

These patients, all most all of whom are rebel fighters, are treated in Israeli hospitals. Therefore, Israel, the sworn enemy of the Arab Middle East, has actually helped to save the lives of jihadists.

While this may seem like a monumental act of selfless humanitarianism, many question Israel’s willingness to aid Islamic militants.

Major General Herzi Halevi, the leader of IDF intelligence, has said openly that Tel Aviv prefers ISIS to the Assad regime.

Speaking as a representative of the Israeli government, Major General Halevy bluntly told a conference audience that Israel does not want ISIS defeated in Syria.

Israel’s position regarding the Syrian Civil War makes them somewhat of a rogue agent for the West, which seeks to destroy ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

For the Israelis, their option essentially boils down to defending the Golan Heights, a contested area that the Syrian government has made claims on since 1967. Although al-Assad is in no position to take on the IDF, there may be a time down the road when Syria makes new claims on the Golan Heights.

    Israel has the right to defend itself. The Bible says there will never be peace over there (or in the world ) until The Lord Jesus Christ comes back.

    Isreal must aggressivly defend the Golan and all other Isreali territory. Gaza should come again under Isreali control. The mess there that has been left behind in the aftermath of the withdrawal is
    not at all conducive to Isreal’s security.

    Ten rockets could land well inside of Israel’s boarders & Israel could respond with only one retaliatory ricket strike, and STILL these cowards would accuse ISRAEL of initiating the aggression.

    More focused on North Korea’s conflagration
    Update
    Insightful re NK, in case you are concerned about it.

    Just a note, China has warned NK not to test their new mega nuke or they may invade.

    They have deployed 150,000 troops on their boarder to prevent NKs from rushing into N China. A misfiring of the NK nuke would wipe out NE China Provinces.

    Well I think isreal is well within it’s rights to act as a soverign nation but as I have thought for many years the us needs to let them handle there own fights. And Russia should not be involved either. As this bubbling pit could and probly will drag every country into world war 3 and there will be no consise winners.

    Israel must do whatever it takes to survive; otherwise, they would have disappeared as a nation a long time ago. Their non-aggressive yet determined self-sustainment should be a lesson for the whole Middle East, but Middle-Easterners don’t appear to want to learn from their neighbors, only to fight them.

    Not a bad idea at all; ISIS beats Bashar, takes over whole Syria, and founds an Islamic Republic, even now Israel might be helping them secretly, after all it is in their National Interest, by doing so they secure their borders may be when ISIS has their own country peace may come to the middle east, killings stop, Russians will be out and PEACE will prevail!

    May be I am dreaming….lol
