    Mere mention of Syrian strikes increased stock prices of defense suppliers like Lockheed Martin dramatically. Billion$ for the price of bombing an anti-venom factory in #Syria. Is there ever any other motive?

Of course, I doubt the Russians got caught out in the open. I don't see how Iran, Syria and Russia can not respond to this Israeli attack.

    Confirmation from FARS. Syria got its fighter jets back to the bases and then Israel attacked them with missiles.

    Syrian Fighter Jets Go Back Home After US Strikes End

    TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian warplanes that had left their bases before the US-led collation missile attacks on the country returned to their airfields across the country to continue air raids against terrorists' positions, a media outlet reported on Monday.

    The Arabic-language website of massdar news reported that the Syrian Air Force had evacuated all its fighter jets from its military bases days before the missile attacks on the country by the US, UK and France, adding that the fighter jets have now returned to their bases.

    In the meantime, field sources reported that the army aircraft resumed operation immediately after their arrival in their bases and started bombing terrorists' positions and movements.

    According to the Syrian army, none of the country's warplanes has been damaged in the coalition attacks.

    The US threatened to launch an offensive on Syria last week after claims that Damascus launched a chemical attack on civilians in the town of Douma near Damascus city.

    The US, France and the UK launched a series of strikes on Syria on Saturday in retaliation for the alleged chemical attack by the Syrian government in the town of Douma. The assault came hours before the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) team was scheduled to arrive in Douma to determine whether chemical weapons had indeed been used there.

    According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the missile strike against Syria’s military and civilian infrastructures was carried out by US warplanes and naval ships in cooperation with the British and French air forces, while the Syrian air defenses shot down 71 out of 103 missiles fired by the US-led coalition.

    Syria AIRSTRIKE – Military responding to 'ISRAELI ATTACK' in Damascus and Homs

    SYRIA’S air-defences have been firing at “unidentified objects” over Damascus in what is believed to be an Israel airstrike, it has been reported.



    Syria state television has confirmed its air defences are repelling attacks in the country’s Homs region.

    The military announced at around 1.10am local time (11.10pm GMT) that it had fired missiles towards the Shay’rat Airbase, to the south-east of Homs, and its surrounding area in the Homs Governorate.

    Local reporter Ibrahim Joudeh took to Twitter and posted a video of the missiles being shot at in the sky.

    He said: “Video shows Missile launched against unknown Target in Far East Damascus countryside."

    Mr Joudeh added shortly after that “another air defence missile was just launched”.

    According to local reports, several missiles were launched after “unknown warplanes” entered Syrian airspace from Lebanon.

    A military source added the Syrian military believes Israeli warplanes were responsible.

    Also a number of local reporters have said there are "Israeli warplanes" flying at high-altitude carrying out the attack after crossing the borders through Lebanon.

    It is currently unclear what the airstrike was targeting.

    Initial reports claim the raid is aimed at the T4 base, but others say it is aimed at Shyrat AB which was hit last year in the US Tomahawk attack.

    A source within the Syrian Army told local media site Al-Masdar that the T4 base was the operation’s “likely target”.

    They added that several explosions were heard near the base.

    A statement from the Syrian regime added that several missiles were intercepted, but these reports are unconfirmed.

    The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) declared that at least nine Israeli missiles were shot down.

    There are currently no reports of targets hit in Damascus.

    Reports say six missiles have hit Shayrat air base in Homs and three missiles have hit Dumayr airbase, but these are unconfirmed so far.

    The attack comes after reports of covert airstrikes carried out by Israeli forces at Iranian bases in the Jabal Azzan region south of Aleppo.

    According to Amichai Stein, a correspondent for the Israeli public broadcasting corporation, the Syrian Ministry of Defence claimed it had intercepted 3 missiles “that struck Dumair military airport”.

    He explained: “Syrian MoD claims to have intercept three missiles that struck Dumair military Airport northeast of Damascus and six missiles launched towards Shayrat military Air Base in Homs.”

    The Pentagon has declared there is "no US military activity near Homs at this time".

    It added: "We do not have additional details to provide."

    The recent incident follows a coordinated attack by the US, UK and France that saw over 100 missiles launched from US ships and UK Tornado fighter-bombers.

    The strike was designed to disable the country’s use of chemical weapons after it allegedly used chlorine against rebels in Douma, eastern Ghouta on April 7.

    The Real Next War in Syria: Iran vs. Israel
    Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: Syria is going to explode. I know, you have heard that one before, but this time I mean really explode. Because the U.S., British and French attack on Syria to punish its regime for its vile use of chemical weapons — and Russia’s vow to respond — is actually just the second-most dangerous confrontation unfolding in that country.

    Even more dangerous is that Israel and Iran, at the exact same time, seem to be heading for a High Noon shootout in Syria over Iran’s attempts to turn Syria into a forward air base against Israel, something Israel is vowing to never let happen. This is not mere speculation. In the past few weeks — for the first time ever — Israel and Iran have begun quietly trading blows directly, not through proxies, in Syria.

    And this quiet phase may be about to end.

    Israel and Iran are now a hair-trigger away from going to the next level — and if that happens, the U.S. and Russia may find it difficult to stay out.

    Let me try to explain what is unfolding from a lookout post on the Syrian-Israel border, where I stood a couple of days ago. To follow along at home, I highly recommend this website, which tracks the multiple interlocking Syrian conflicts in real time and is used by the U.N. observers here on the Golan Heights.

    Let’s start with the fact that the latest U.S., British and French cruise missile punishment attack appears to be a one-off operation and the impact will be contained. Russia and Syria have little interest in courting another Western raid and raising the level of involvement in Syria by the three big Western powers. And the three Western powers do not want to get more deeply involved in Syria.

    It is the potentially uncontained direct shooting war brewing between Israel and Iran that is much more likely and worrisome, because it may be about to enter round two.

    Round one occurred on Feb. 10, when an Iranian drone launched by a Revolutionary Guards Quds Force unit operating out of Syria’s T4 air base, east of Homs in central Syria, was shot down with a missile from an Israeli Apache helicopter that was following it after it penetrated Israeli airspace.

    Initial reports were that the Iranian drone was purely on a reconnaissance mission. But the official Israeli Army spokesman, Brig. Gen. Ronen Manelis, said Friday that the drone’s flight path and Israel’s “intelligence and operational analysis of the parts of the Iranian unmanned vehicle” indicated that “the aircraft was carrying explosives” and that its mission was “an act of sabotage in Israeli territory.”

    I have no ability to independently verify that claim. But the fact that the Israelis are putting it out should raise alarm bells. If it is true, it suggests that the Quds Force — commanded by Iran’s military mastermind Qassem Suleimani — may have been trying to launch an actual military strike on Israel from an air base in Syria, not just reconnaissance.

    “This is the first time we saw Iran do something against Israel — not by proxy,” a senior Israeli military source told me. “This opened a new period.”

    It certainly helps to explain why Israeli jets launched a predawn missile raid on the Iranian drone’s T4 home base last Monday. This would have been a huge story — Israel killed seven Iranian Quds Force members, including Col. Mehdi Dehghan, who led the drone unit — but it was largely lost in the global reaction to (and Trump tweets about) President Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons two days earlier.

    “It was the first time we attacked live Iranian targets — both facilities and people,” said the Israeli military source.

    (After the story appeared, the Israeli Army’s spokesman’s office disputed the characterization and accuracy of the raid by my Israeli source, and emphasized that Israel maintains its policy to avoid commenting on media reports regarding the raid on the T4 airfield and other events. He would not comment further.)

    Russian and Syrian military officials both attributed the attack to Israel and the Iranians not only openly announced their embarrassing losses through the semiofficial Fars news agency — they have played down previous indirect casualties from Israeli strikes in Syria — but then publicly vowed to take revenge.

    “The crimes will not remain unanswered,” Ali Akbar Velayati, a top adviser to Iran’s supreme leader, said during a visit to Syria.

    Since then, senior Israeli defense officials have let it be known that if the Iranians were to strike back at Israeli targets, Israel may use the opportunity to make a massive counterstrike on Iran’s entire military infrastructure in Syria, where Iran is attempting to establish both a forward air base, as well as a factory for GPS-guided missiles that could hit targets inside Israel with much greater accuracy — inside a 50-meter radius — and deploy them from Syria and with Hezbollah in Lebanon.

    These defense officials say there is zero chance Israel will make the mistake it made in Lebanon — of letting Hezbollah establish a massive missile threat there — by letting Iran do the same directly in Syria.

    Now you can understand why it is such a dangerous situation — even without the U.S., French and British punishment for Assad’s use of chemical weapons.

    Iran claims it is setting up bases in Syria to protect it from Israel, but Israel has no designs on Syria; it actually prefers the devil it knows there — Assad — over chaos. And it has not intervened in the civil war there except to prevent the expansion of Iran’s military infrastructure there or to retaliate for rebel or Syrian shells that fell on Israel’s territory.

    I understand Iran’s security concerns in the Gulf; it faces a number of hostile, pro-American Sunni Arab powers trying to contain its influence and undermine its Islamic regime. From Iran’s perspective, these are a threat.

    But what is Iran doing in Syria?

    Tehran’s attempt to build a network of bases and missile factories in Syria — now that it has helped Assad largely crush the uprising against him — appears to be an ego-power play by Iran’s Quds Force leader Suleimani to extend Iran’s grip on key parts of the Sunni Arab world and advance his power struggle with President Hassan Rouhani. Suleimani’s Quds Force now more or less controls — through proxies — four Arab capitals: Damascus, Beirut, Baghdad and Sana.

    Iran has actually become the biggest “occupying power” in the Arab world today. But Suleimani may be overplaying his hand, especially if he finds himself in a direct confrontation with Israel in Syria, far from Iran, without air cover.

    After all, even before this, many average Iranians were publicly asking what in the world is Iran doing spending billions of dollars — which were supposed to go to Iranians as a result of the lifting of sanctions from the Iran nuclear deal — fighting wars in Syria, Lebanon and Yemen.

    That is surely one reason Iran has not retaliated — yet. Suleimani has to think twice about starting a full-scale, direct war with Israel, because of another big story many people have not noticed: Iran’s currency is collapsing back home. Consider this April 12 story on CNBC.com:

    The Iranian rial “has plummeted to a record low amid growing economic and political uncertainty, causing a rush to the banks as Iranians desperately try to acquire U.S. dollars with exchanges forced to shut their doors to prevent long and chaotic lines.” The rial has lost one-third of its value just this year, the story noted.

    Moreover, Israeli military officials believe Russian President Vladimir Putin and Suleimani are no longer natural allies. Putin wants and needs a stable Syria where his puppet Bashar Assad can be in control and Russia can maintain a forward naval and air presence and look like a superpower again — on the cheap. Iran’s President Rouhani probably also prefers a stable Syria, where Assad has consolidated his power and that is not a drain on the Iranian budget. But Suleimani and the Quds Force seem to aspire to greater dominance of the Arab world and putting more pressure on Israel.

    Unless Suleimani backs down, you are about to see in Syria an unstoppable force — Iran’s Quds Force — meet an immovable object: Israel.

    False Alarm in Syria: Military Sources Says No Attack Overnight

    IDF: Iranian Drone Shot Down in February Was Carrying Explosives
    The IDF said on Friday an Iranian drone it shot down over Israeli territory in February was armed with explosives and was meant to carry out an attack.

    The IDF said that after analyzing the flight path and investigating the drone, it “concluded that the Iranian UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) was armed with explosives and was tasked to attack Israel.”

    By intercepting the drone, the military said, the “combat helicopters prevented the attack Iran had hoped to carry out in Israel.”

    “The UAV was identified and tracked by Israeli defense systems until its destruction, effectively eliminating any threat the Iranian UAV posed,” it said.

    If Israel wants to tangle with Iran, now might be a good time to do it. The place is going to explode. People are sick of the mullahs and there have been posts for days now about mass demonstrations there; I just haven't posted about them.

    But here's one. Scroll down a bit for the video (there's other stuff at that link too):

    Current sitrep has the Israeli defense establishment predicting an Iranian attack on Israeli territory, no later than Thurs. evening. (Israel's 70th Independence Day) Major decisions on a massive preemptive strike against Iranian assets in Syria are being made now. Not just a few bombing runs. A massive Israeli operation.

    I don't think this was it. I do think it is shaping the battlefield. Jabs and a few fakes.

    I think a slug match is coming. Can't say when.

    That's my understanding as well. Also I got the feeling that these protests might have some secret combatants imbedded, and using the mobility of the protesters to position themselves to take out the mullahs. Talk about a different world, eh.

    Got my fingers crossed, anyways!

    Might be the Russians are trying to establish an exclusion zone under the guise of an "exercise"?

    #BREAKING: The @WSJ is reporting that last week's airstrike by #Israel on an Iranian base in #Syria was targeted because of a "newly arrived advanced air-defense system" which could have "hindered future Israeli operations in #Syria".

    SO----Israel will NOT wait until Iran attacks?


    THEY will attack FIRST?

    I think it is obvious that the Mullahs in Iran completely believe they need to start a nuclear war to usher in the return of their version of the Messiah. Further, they will go down hard, violently and with piles of corpses if they feel seriously threatened with being overthrown. Ergo, Israel targeting them for "regime change," will fuel their paranoia, and make them adopt the famous, "the best defense is a good offense," doctrine.

    I posted an article on my wordpress blog indicating that Assad Junior, the Russians and Iranian backed forces were preparing to engage the US troops and their proxies now building firebases in Eastern Syria to control the oil there.

    When "it" breaks out, however you define it, the most likely place will either be Hezzbollah lighting up Northern Israel with missile strikes, or direct combat between the US and proxy forces, and the various Iranian and Syrian forces now massing on the West side of the Euprhates to attack all the US forces on the East side of the Eurphates.

    I WOULD ALSO REMIND EVERYBODY THAT ONE OF THE RUSSIAN TRANSPORT SHIPS NOW INBOUND TO THE RUSSIAN NAVAL BASE IS CARRY THE TYPE OF BOAT THAT IS USED TO BUILD BRIDGES: LIKELY OVER THE EUPHRATES RIVER!

    The game is afoot, gang. Iran and Syria are setting up their moves.

    [CORRECTION---NOT the Euphrates--the Zayandeh River

    Which leads to another thing I learned last night--to my surprise, because it's another thing that hasn't been in our worthless MSM news----


    One of Iran's major rivers IS DRYING UP.


    Apparently there's been an ongoing DROUGHT for a long time there, now. The twitter page I posted earlier--if you go to that link---there's a post just down the page from the pic I posted where some Imam or other is blaming the drought on WOMEN not wearing HIJAB---yep, not dressing in sacks is causing the river to dry up, per this guy.

    There are some pretty dramatic pictures of dams completely exposed and out of the water, due to the dropping water levels....


    I saw all this on one of the twitter pages MzKitty posted--but for the life of me can't find it now. Will search....


    ETA--couldn't find the tweet, but found an article about it:

    Iranian women who wear immodest clothing have caused the nation’s rivers to run dry and damaged the environment, a senior cleric has claimed.

    Ayatollah Yousef Tabatabai-Nejad, an arch conservative prayer leader in the city of Isfahan, said that a strict Islamic dress code must be enforced to ward off drought. The controversial cleric, previously accused of provoking acid attacks on women who flouted the dress code and for advocating the use of the whip, called for a new crackdown on the phenomenon of “bad hijab”, meaning that women are not properly covered up.


    https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/a...fies-rxbc9n987

    Apparently there are a NUMBER of causes for it--and many more places than just this one river:

    And a crisis is exactly what it is becoming, Madani explains: "Rivers and lakes are going dry one after another, we're losing wetlands, we're seeing land subsidence, we're seeing desertification, which is really sad." from "Iran's Water Crisis"-
    https://www.aljazeera.com/programmes...114752047.html


    Whether or not all this is affecting the Euphrates I haven't yet found, but am looking into it----


    The Zayandeh Roud, or “life-giving river”

    "Soleimani says Iran ready ‘to break the rules’ after attack on T-4 base"

    Following the attack that claimed the lives of seven Iranians in Syria, Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani arrived in Damascus and issued a direct threat to Israel. According to Soleimani, Iran is prepared “to break the rules of the game” by targeting Israel and the US directly.

    Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani directly threatened Israel on Tuesday while in Damascus, Hadashot news reported, citing the Lebanese Ad-Diyar newspaper. Last week, seven Iranians were killed in an airstrike that has been attributed to Israel. “Israel is going to pay the price,” he warned from Syria’s capital.

    Ad-Diyar stressed that the rare visit by the top Iranian commander was designed to send a clear message to the United States and Israel: if the acts of aggression continue, there will be consequences. Soleimani reportedly said that Iran is prepared “to break the rules of the game” following the attack on the T-4 airbase. According to Soleimani, a counterattack could include targeting Tel Aviv or American bases in the region.
