The 'Mystery Missiles' That Hit Syria Today.
The 'Mystery Missiles' That Hit Syria Today.

Talk about spoon-fed news!

Quote:Syria war: 'Iranian personnel among dozens dead' in missile attacks.

'Missiles hit a number of military sites in northern Syria on Sunday night, state media say,
with unconfirmed reports of dozens of fatalities.
The Syrian military said facilities in Hama and Aleppo provinces were struck.

It did not immediately report any casualties.
But a UK-based monitoring group said 26 pro-government fighters were killed, most of them

It is not known who was behind the attacks.
Western nations and Israel have previously hit sites in Syria.

Earlier this month, the US, UK and France bombed three facilities they said were associated
with the Syrian government's alleged chemical weapons programme.

Israel is meanwhile alleged to have hit an airbase in Homs province reportedly serving as an
Iranian drone command centre and containing an advanced Iranian air defence system.
Seven Iranian soldiers were among 14 military personnel killed in that attack.

Israel has repeatedly vowed to stop its arch-enemy Iran from strengthening its military presence
in Syria, Iran's closest ally. A Syrian military source cited by the official Sana news agency said
only that the sites targeted on Sunday night were "exposed… to a new aggression".

The source added that the strikes came after terrorist organisations had suffered defeats in the
countryside of the capital, Damascus, an apparent reference to the recent recapture of the Eastern
Ghouta region from rebel groups.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), a UK-based monitoring group, said the attack
appeared to have targeted a depot for surface-to-surface missiles at the 47th Brigade military base,
south of the city of Hama...'

This 'UK-based monitoring group' is in Coventry and where the majority of mainstream news regarding
Middle-East events, comes from.

Quote:'...The pro-opposition Orient News website also reported that large explosions were seen coming from
what were believed to be ammunition caches at the base. Missiles are also reported to have hit locations
in the Salhab area, west of Hama city, and the area surrounding Nairab military airport, which is close to
the city of Aleppo and its international airport.

However, Iran's Tasnim news agency cited the commander of an Iranian-backed Afghan militia as denying
that its base near Aleppo was struck. The SOHR cited its sources as saying 26 pro-government fighters
were killed in the strikes.
Four were Syrian and the others foreigners, a vast majority of whom were Iranians, it said.

It also noted that the death toll might rise as 60 fighters were wounded, some of them seriously, and several
others were missing. The SOHR said that given the nature of the targets, the attacks were likely to have been
carried out by Israel.

But Israeli Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz said on Monday morning that he was "not aware" of the strikes.
"All the violence and instability in Syria is the result of Iran's attempts to establish a military presence there.
Israel will not allow the opening of a northern front in Syria," he told Israel's Army Radio...'

My money is on Israel
Not sure if these are related, but take a look at the links in today's Q posts (4/30/18).

This belongs in my rabbit hole thread, but it goes down deep to explain the TRUE situation going on in Syria right now.  Listen and become clear.

I'm starting it at the 3.43 mark because it's soon after that where she starts on the Syria topic.

Could be. I'm not up on what sort of missile forces Israel has. I will say, however, for the record I'm dead certain that the US is not above handing out missiles to insurgent forces we are backing. Some of those we gave to the Afghans way back when the Soviets invaded there came back to bite us in the ass several years later after the Soviets were no more.
