Another Israeli strike on Syria? Right at the border against "Terrorists"

I had doubts about the first one-  But this one, which Israel admits too... I DO NOT believe this news, as presented, at all!

 Israel controls this border area with the Golan heights. Only their militants get in and out.
One reason this story may have appeared in the media is so Israel can claim there is a threat at their border- When there has never been a threat at their border!
So many people, including myself have pointed out the obvious collusion between Israel and their Islamic allies- That Israel needed something to happen to cover for it's malfeasance and shore up it's victim narrative was plainly obvious and inevitable

Israel reported no casualties counts for their alleged airstrike. The narrative and body count is bolstered, conveniently, by the the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights - But SOHR claims Syrian soldiers were killed. If it was Syrian soldiers then it was not on Israel's side of the border. Israel's admission to making this strike- their failure to provide a casualty count, when they should have been able to- Along with SOHR playing it's role. Adds up to a narrative fail
We don't even know how the missile was fired! By air or by land?
Then Netanyahu hits social media to shore up the bullshit!?

The military said it carried out the strike after troops saw "a group of armed terrorists" approach the border with an explosive intended to target Israeli troops. It said that Israeli aircraft "targeted the squad, preventing the attack."
It did not offer any casualty figure for the strike. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said four Syrian soldiers were killed by a missile fired from Israeli-occupied territory in the Golan. Observatory director Rami Abdurrahman said it was not clear whether the missile was fired by a plane or from a vehicle.
Can't even get the lies straight?
On Twitter, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sent messages commending the soldiers involved in the strike.

 This is the image the media runs with after Israel allegedly bombed via air or land, not sure, militants with explosives?

The strikes, that may not have took place at all, are alleged to have happened on the Israeli side of the border?

The Israel Defense Forces said the airstrikes were carried out in the occupied Golan Heights against four militants who crossed into the area from Syria.

Same image showing nothing of substance- same story

Oddly enough this morning there were reports questioning the previous airstrike also?

So, did Israel actually launch a strike?  Who, if anyone at all, was killed? Is this an entirely contrived narrative? Just what is fact and what is fiction in these multiple conflicting narratives? The first casualty of war is always truth. If anyone can fill in some blanks, please do?


  1. looks like the victims were family of the Israel "Druze" spy, i think this was a revenge attack by Israel targeting the family, then claiming it is an anti terrorist attack.

  2. Hi hans
    interesting, because I had seen the news regarding the Druze "spy"
    so called by Israel- but a Syrian in occupied territory is still a Syrian
    would you have a link for that information?
    because we would be talking assassination really wouldn't we?


  3. for those who may not be aware of this situation?

    An indictment filed last week in the Nazareth District Court against a resident of the town of Majdal Shams on the Golan Heights for espionage and assisting the enemy during wartime portrays Sudki Makat, a Druze supporter of the Assad regime in Syria, as the first Facebook spy caught in Israel.

    Only one of the crimes he is charged with for now is connected to direct contact with an enemy agent — Assad’s bureau chief — and it is quite doubtful that in light of all the things the Syrian regime has to worry about these days, it has the time to operate a spy in Israel.

    The other claims in the indictment relate to things Makat posted on his Facebook page. The Israeli media also broadcast the recordings of interviews he gave from the Golan to Syrian television. The main claim against him in the indictment is that the information he posted — on the Internet and in the press — concerning Israel Defense Forces activities along the Syrian border could have reached hostile organizations which could have used the information against Israel. There were no details on whether this actually happened.

    The information he supplied had to do with all the friendliness between israel's islamists and the IDF


    Earlier this year, Israeli intelligence forces raided the home of Sidqi Maqt, a Syrian Druze from Majdal Shams in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

    His arrest on February 25 was placed under a military gag order for several weeks before the charges were made public in late March. He was accused of espionage, assisting an enemy during wartime and contact with a foreign agent.

    Since his release, he has dedicated his time to documenting Israeli military activity along the Israeli-Syrian front in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights and the army's interaction with Syrian armed groups, most notably the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda, al-Nusra Front. He would then post all his information and documentation, including photos and videos, on his Facebook page.

    According to Israeli media, which dubbed Maqt the "Facebook Spy", the indictment references his posts on his Facebook page as evidence. Bizarrely, the indictment details the number of "likes" and "shares" his posts received, claiming that such posts "incited other Facebook users" to share "extremist sentiments" against Israel.

    What Maqt's case seems to have actually done, however, is bring to the forefront again the question of Israel's involvement in Syria's war, particularly regarding its relationship with al-Nusra.

    According to a friend of Maqt's, the information he posted online highlighted in detail the level of interaction between Israel and al-Nusra, an alliance Israel would not be keen on publicising.
