That news was conveniently preceded by the preparative meme implantation of "Syria/ Chemical/ Weapons"
It's clear the strike was not about chemical weapons despite the lies..
I'm going to link and quote from an Atlantic article saved from yesterday:
The country has reportedly staged a new strike on Syria—and this one was different from previous ones.
The Syrian military said Israeli warplanes fired missiles from Lebanese airspace at a Syrian military positions near Masyaf, killing two army personnel and damaging the site
The site is "the country’s premier research institution, and stored surface-to-surface missiles"Stored surface to surface missiles. How many missiles might have been stored there?
"Amos Yadlin, the former head of Israel’s military intelligence, while not confirming that Israel was responsible, said on Twitter the strike was “not routine.”
“It targeted a Syrian military-scientific center for the development and manufacture of, among other things, precision missiles which will have a significant role in the next round of conflict,” he (Amos Yadlin) said.Amos Yadlin: Israel targeted "precision missiles which will have a significant role in the next round of conflict”
Does that read to you like Israel is softening the Syrian target in advance of "the next round of conflict"?
Is Amos Yadlin telling us that the strike on a facility that stored surface to surface missiles was done to leave Syria at a disadvantage for the next round of the conflict?
And if Israel engaged in this most recent strikes is Amos Yadlin also implying that Israel will launch more strikes?
Certainly I am not suggesting that this was all of Syria's missile inventory- however, if enough were destroyed & cannot be replaced in short order doesn't that leave Syria disadvantaged?
Possibly? I don't know? I find Yadlin's statement both intriguing and worrisome.
Since I am of the mind that the US, Israel, Kurdish remake agenda has been impeded by the SAA success at Deir ez Zor.
I notice Lebanon has moved their army to the entire eastern border with Syria
"Lebanese troops have established an unprecedented presence in the northeastern area of Jurud Ras Baalbek, a belt of territory that has been a longstanding source of contention with Syria"Coinciding with Israel Staging Large Military Drills on the Border of Both Syria and Israel
"The drills will include ground, air, sea and intelligence forces and focus on defending an attack along Israel's northern border."
Turkey has been moving military equipment to it's border with Syria for some time now.
Then you have that massive, massive shipment of vehicles and weapons to the PKK/YPG in the stolen Syrian territory in the north.
Washington has provided 1,285 truckloads of weapons and ammunition to the PKK's Syrian armed wing, the People's Protection Units (YPG).
During a face-to-face meeting between Mattis and Canikli on Aug. 23, the Turkish side provided aerial photographs which indicate that the number of trucks is far higher than claimed.
the 1,200 trucks of weapons are enough to adequately equip at least 60,000 soldiers,
I also notice the media is pushing the weather terror drama non-stop- Which would provide a very convenient distraction...
Related too both Syria and the employing of weather as a terror tool:
