Israeli Aggression Against Syrian Tanks
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
Israeli warplanes attack Syrian targets at its discretion, each time unaccountably – the latest incident on Saturday.
Whenever its acts of aggression occur, Israel tries justifying the unjustifiable, a statement following Saturday’s attack saying:
“The IDF will not allow any attempt to harm Israel’s sovereignty and the security of its people, and sees the Syrian regime as responsible for what transpires in its territory.”
Israel claimed errant fire landed in illegally occupied Golan. The IDF struck the “origin of launches and two Syrian tanks,” it said.
No Syrian military “projectiles” were fired cross-border, not Saturday or earlier. Any landing in occupied Golan likely came from US and Israeli-supported terrorists – Syria’s military wrongfully blamed for what happened.
The Netanyahu regime outrageously complained to the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF).
Since May 31, 1974, it’s maintained disengagement and ceasefire between Israeli and Syrian forces, Damascus in full compliance, Israel a serial violator.
No Israelis were killed or injured in the latest incident, no damage reported. Lebanon’s al-Mayadeen TV reported two Syrian soldiers killed, no confirmation so far from its military. It’s unclear what damage was done.
Israel is allied with Washington’s war on Syria, arming and providing other material support to anti-government terrorists, treating their wounded in Israeli hospitals, along with striking Syrian targets at its discretion – fabricating reasons each time acts of aggression occur.
