Israel carried out its latest bombing early this morning targeting the outskirts of the Syrian capital Damascus from over the Lebanese capital Beirut, the Syrian air defense units shot down some of the incoming missiles.
A military spokesperson told the Syrian news agency, Sana:
At approximately 3:05 in the morning today, the Israeli enemy carried out air aggression with bursts of missiles from the direction of Rayak, east of Beirut, targeting some points in the vicinity of Damascus. Our air defense media confronted the aggression’s missiles and shot down some of them.
The military spokesperson added that the aggression led to some material losses without giving further details.
This is the first Israeli aggression against Syria this year, it took the Zionist entity of imported European and Russian settlers long this time after its latest aggression over a month ago on the 28th of December of last year which was a major escalation that targeted Syria’s main seaport of Latakia and the missiles buzzed nearby the Russian largest naval base abroad, could be the only Russian naval base abroad as well.
In the previous aggression against Latakia, the Syrian air defense units were forced to stand down as the Israeli fighter jets were using a Russian plane heading to the Hmemim base as their cover, this time, they used the Lebanese capital Beirut.
Today’s aggression also coincides with the first official visit the so-called Israeli ‘President’ to the United Arab Emirates, the UAE’s capital was targeted in the past few days by missiles and drones from Yemen, is the Israeli aggression against Damascus a message related to the Yemeni bombing of Abu Dhabi?
Abu Dhabi has reached out to Syria late last year in an effort to mend its relations with Damascus after years of estrangement, or better described as cold relations if Israel with its latest increased relations with the UAE thinks by bombing Damascus it’s sending a message to the Yemeni Army of such, the Israeli officials are very mistaken, though the Axis of Resistance acts as a coalition but only in defense and do not link their files together, each of the parties to the Axis of Resistance proved its capability to not only withstand the massive aggression against it, they are achieving victories over the aggressors.
In Syria, the general understanding remains that Israel is trying to drag the US forces illegally deployed in the country and in bases in nearby countries to a regional war for Israel to sacrifice the US troops to defend the Zionist settlers, and as long as Israel doesn’t cross a red line in its attacks against Syria, the priority remains to eliminate Israel and the US’s more powerful proxy, the anti-Islamic Wahhabi and Muslim Brotherhood terrorists of Al Qaeda and ISIS and deprive Israel of its US cannon fodders who would need to leave once their terrorists are defeated.
