Turkey’s Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu gives it away right here, though inadvertently!
And I quote.....
"Why didn't [Bashar] al-Assad even throw a pebble when Israeli jets were flying over his palace and playing with the dignity of his country?"
If the Israeli jets were flying over or near the Presidential palace then the hit was definitely in Damascus on the Research centre as Syria has claimed from the get go!
Oh, I am changing part of my earlier comment regarding this strike, made in this post. Israel's strike on Syria: Practice runs for Iran and target softening
Initially it seemed there were two strikes, one near Lebanon, having nothing at all to do with a convoy.
This is the strike the western media pushes as the only one that happened and ignoring, ridiculing or downplaying the strike in Damascus.
I am now more inclined to believe there was one strike and only one strike, on the research centre in Damascus, that Israel undertook in aid of the NATO mercs.
Thanks for that admission FM Davutoglu. You da man!
But , if one gaffe wasn't enough for the FM of Turkey, why not make it two?
Turkey will not tolerate and silently watch Israeli attacks on any Muslim country, Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on Saturday, Zaman newspaper reported.Earth to Ahmet, Syria is a Muslim country and Ahmet you have already acknowledged that indeed Israel attacked Syria in Damascus, no less. So leap into action! "Don't "tolerate and silently watch Israeli attacks on Muslim countries" What's stopping you? Seriously, this man speaks from both sides of his mouth.
The Turkish people, stuck with bad leadership, like so many of us. Sigh.
The attack by Israel also validates the Syrian claims that Israel is acting as a destabilizer
Israel 'destabilising' Syria, Assad says
Not that it wasn't obvious, anyway.
Take a gander at a few of today's headlines ..
Israeli defence minister suggests his air force hit Syria
Israel minister alludes to responsibility for Syria strike
Israel is destabilizing Syria.
