Okay so we are definitely way out of the routine.
The Jews used to do this only once every month or six weeks. Now they’ve done it three times in the last week, and appear to be starting a campaign.
They are freaking the hell out about ISIS losing.
That’s also the push for the US to get more involved.
The Israel Defense Forces says it has responded to a “projectile launched from Syria towards Israel” by firing at Syrian army positions.
“Moments ago, a projectile fired from Syria hit an open area in the northern Golan Heights. No injuries reported,” the IDF’s Twitter account posted on Wednesday. Half an hour later, the IDF reported it had “targeted the Syrian military position that fired the mortar.”
The IDF fired back at the village of Samadanieh al Sharqiyah in Quneitra province, near where Syrian government forces have been engaging rebels over the last week, according to Beirut-based broadcaster Al-Mayadeen TV.
The mortar was reported by the IDF while Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was visiting a nearby village in the Golan Heights.
“While I was speaking, I said here that we will not tolerate errant shooting and we will respond to all firing. During my speech, there was errant fire from the Syrian side that landed in our territory and the army has already attacked,” Reuters quoted the PM as saying.
“Whoever attacks us, we attack them. This is our policy and we will continue to implement it.”
Yeah, I think if the Syrian military had attacked Israel, we’d be in a bit different situation right now.
According to Martin Jay, a broadcaster and Middle East affairs analyst based in Beirut, even though the stray round from Syria was unintentional and didn’t cause any damage, Israel felt it had to assert itself in an increasingly volatile geopolitical situation.
“It’s very, very important that Netanyahu makes the very firm point that they’re ready for anything that comes over,” Jay told RT. “Just a few weeks ago there was an incident of an Israeli jet hitting a Hezbollah target in Syria and Assad made a very firm statement that he would strike back. He did try to strike back with some sort of missile – it was questionable about what type it was – which was intercepted on the Israeli side.”
“So, there’s a great deal of tension there. The great worry is that these skirmishes or these exchanges actually evolve into a full-on conflict because so far, technically speaking, Israel is not actually involved in the Syrian war.”
On Saturday, Israeli warplanes fired on two Syrian tanks in response to “over 10 projectiles” landing in the Golan Heights. But according to the Syrian government, the IDF instead hit a parking lot and a residential building, causing civilian casualties.
And on Sunday, the IDF struck two artillery launchers and an ammunition truck on the Syrian side of the border after “several Syrian projectiles” landed in Israeli territory without causing any casualties. A similar incident occurred in the same Golan Heights region on Saturday.
No one actually wants this war to end. Honestly, I don’t even think the Jews want Assad dead – at least not yet.
They just want it to go on and on and on and on.
