Israel Strikes Syria, Lebanon and sights set on the Sinai

Israel's busy, busy, busy-
A round up of the latest happenings

Israel strikes Syrian village killing pro-Assad forces

An airstrike by Israel yesterday on a government held village in the Syrian Golan Heights has reportedly killed fighters loyal to President Bashar-Al-Assad alongside two Hezbollah militants, raising fears that the Syrian civil war could be further spilling over into the wider region.
Israel strikes targets in Syria, Lebanon in two separate attacks

In Lebanon, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine said Israeli warplanes struck near the Lebanese border with Syria, wounding six. The jets hit an arms depot in the area of Qousaya in the Bekaa region in eastern Lebanon, the group, which has close links to the Iran-backed Lebanese Shi'ite movement Hezbollah, added.
The Syrian army confirmed that Israeli airstrikes hit a pro-Syrian Palestinian militia base along the Syria-Lebanon border, injuring six. In a newsflash, state television quoted a military source as saying Israeli planes had at 3:15 P.M. struck a base belonging to the Damascus-based Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command, a faction that backs President Bashar Assad. 

Meanwhile in the Golan Heights, reports emanting from Lebanon said a vehicle in the outskirts of the Syrian town of Khader, near the Israeli border, in the Quneitra district was bombed at noon.

Syria says Israeli drone attack killed 3 in country's south

In a statement aired on State-run Syrian TV, the Syrian government said that a pilotless Israeli plane struck a civilian car near the predominantly Druze village of Hader, killing the three villagers.
Al-Manar TV, an outlet of Lebanon's militant Hezbollah group, said the strike targeted a car carrying members of the Syrian National Defense Committees, a pro-Assad militia, near Hader. The village is surrounded by Syrian opposition-controlled territory.
 The Sinai strike news reads like a heavy promotion- Presenting a need for that which is simply desired. Hence preemptive strikes

 Israeli army to launch Sinai strikes

A senior military officer has said Israel could attack militants affiliated to the Islamic State group in neighbouring Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, if they were about to attack Israeli soldiers or civilians.
The “threat of terror from Sinai” has grown in recent years, Brigadier General Royi Elcabets said on Wednesday.

Speaking at a ceremony marking the end of his two years as commander of the Edom division that controls the border with the Sinai, Elcabets said IS’s Egypt affiliate could attempt to attack Israel.

“It is our duty to preempt it and strike at it, if and when this happens,” he said in remarks relayed by the military.

      Us just approved tow missiles to Lebanon (analog the Ukraine demand for javelin in exchange for nukes). The stories of Assad imminent demise have faded as the UN was out yesterday warning about humanitarian issues in the area where Assad and Hez are on the march. Only thing missing are some Israeli airstrikes from an alleged Syrian she'll landing in the Golan.

      Add to this Azeri launching it's first exercises with Russia in what looks like a clear drift from the us and Israeli tilt. Iran has doubled down on its defiance in Syria and broader national interests inside and sco bid. No white flag in spite of the hype. Iran deal looking more and more like a lose lose for the US as Iran gazes east. All make the Kurd break all the more urgent as putin has promised a caspian deal by year end. Throw in the armenia spring like protests. Maliki few weeks ago said overtly his ouster was organized in a neighboring state. The revolutionary guard weeks ago promised a surprise in Syria. Flip over to the latest surge of violence in Algeria. Russia media just reported that the s400 was caught in photo in country.

      If anngfan is correct in her assertions about erdogan why do the turkstream deal? One would have to assume a sabatoge op. Dial back to a bloomberg article last year about a remote pipeline hack in Turkey in a throwback to the stories during the cold war when the siberian pipeline employing the alleged corrupted stolen software via a 3rd party blew up (still denied).

      and then I responded regarding Aangirfan's post
      so if you wouldn't mind, could you be more specific
      I just don't want to assume anything :)
      thanks

    2. "The stories of Assad imminent demise have faded as the UN was out yesterday warning about humanitarian issues in the area where Assad and Hez are on the march. Only thing missing are some Israeli airstrikes from an alleged Syrian she'll landing in the Golan"

      Wasn't that whole refugee campwhic invoked the PLO pretext disguised as empathy?

      It would appear that the claptrap about assad imminent demise and russia waning support illustrates the paradox which occurs when information warfare meets kinetic engagement and loses. Every time the israelis move it is because Assad is taking ground. When Assad was interviewed late last year he explicitly said as much. With Iran coming out on the heals of the deal and reiterating their support for Assad regime, what to do? Perhaps the next leg here is a move to inflame the Iranian Kurds and their Azeri brethren (going back to the russian Azeri naval drill and the coming Caspian agreement which Putin promised is close to being signed by YE).

      In view of the hawkish comments coming out of the Iranian regime about pursuing a resolute post deal independent policy, it is still unclear exactly what the US get from the deal? As russia made clear the deal itself nullifies the motivation for deploying missile defense in FSU. That deployment must have Iran doves wondering if they got the Gaddafi handshake or an incipient student movement (or the latest CEE analog of utility rate hike outrage). Maybe iran will follow Russia and preemptively move on NED?

      Or are turkey energy hub ambitions about to meet a south pars fed nabucco Phoenix? Now about Assad granting russia exclusive exploration rights offshore...

      thanks for clarifying :)

      That's seems to be the case

      "Perhaps the next leg here is a move to inflame the Iranian Kurds and their Azeri brethren'

      It appears as if the move has begun to inflame the Iranian Kurds
      Judging by the recent incidents in Turkey, including the pipeline explosion- which was most certainly the work of NATO's PKK Kurds as they push towards Iran- It appears that "Kurdistan" is set to connect the Caspian to the Med- for pipeline purposes of course
      Oh yes and the rail line attack

      http://www.tasnimnews.com/english/Home/Single/815270
      "Following a bomb attack on a railroad used by a train traveling from Turkey's Ankara to the Iranian capital, Tehran, Iran cancelled all Thursday trains to the Turkish capital in a bid to ensure the safety of passengers"

      So, what ever the deal was with Iran, I haven't had time to look into it has done nothing to slow down the destabilization remake campaign of the ME.

      I suspect we are going to need a bit more time to get an idea of what is unfolding, but, it does seem that the NATO destabilization is heading for Iran

      Nabucco was dead in the ground without Iran, can't say what's going on there
      and Russia exploration rights??
      with your help, which I appreciate, perhaps we can keep tabs on the situation, to the best of our ability? :)

    4. I notice, checking on the Iranian news that in France there is a big anti Iranian show going on
      Another NO Good Organization in Action
      And Paris- so I guess... the usual suspects are behind this?

      Paris protest for human rights in Iran
      http://www.ncr-iran.org/en/news/iran-resistance/18860-paris-protest-for-human-rights-in-iran

      Definitely Iran is being set up for NATO targeting. To Israel's benefit ultimately

  2. The Khazar Mob infesting Palestine just murdered another Palestinian baby and the usual suspects are crying crocodile tears.

    Time for another Israeli False Flag, to divert the world's attention from the latest Zionist butchery. Like the one last year when they diverted the world's attention from those four Palestinian kids playing on a Gaza beach that were blown to bits by Israeli Navy gunboats.
    Just another day in Palestine, but this one was witnessed by journalists staying at a nearby hotel, who started writing about the deadly carnage.
    When the story was getting traction, the Israelis kidnapped three of their own, and killed them to regain their permanent victim status.

    Who will rid the world of this pestilence?
