An airstrike, purportedly conducted by the Israeli Air Force in Syria near the city of Palmyra, has killed 9 Damascus’ “fighters”, AFP reported. According to the news agency, three of them were Syrians, while the remainder were “foreigners of unknown nationalities”.

The airstrikes took place overnight between 20 and 21 April near the cities of Homs and Palmyra. The Syrian Arab News Agency reported that the air defences engaged “airborne threats” and managed to shoot them down near Palmyra.

Earlier, the Israeli outlet, The Jerusalem Post reported that the airstrike had targeted the Syrian Arab Air Force’s Tiyas military base, generally known as the T-4 Air Base.

SANA also branded the attack “Israeli aggression”, but the IDF and Tel Aviv have so far not commented on this claim. Damascus has accused Israel on a multitude of occasions of conducting illegal air raids on the Arab Republic, urging the international community to pressure Tel Aviv on the issue. The latter, however, only claimed responsibility for some of these airstrikes.

Israel justified its airstrikes, claiming it targeted Iranian-backed fighters, who were allegedly scheming to attack Israel from the Arab Republic.

While Tehran has indeed sent military advisers to Syria in order to help the latter fight against terrorist groups, the Islamic Republic has denied the claims that it sent military forces there.


About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
