Israel Tries to Kill Assad in Damascus Air Raid (Updated)

Netanyahu claims Assad raid cleared by Russia


…by Nahed al Husaini, VT Damascus

White House sources say Israel never asked, never checked in and expects to be bailed out if Russia comes after them….good luck with that, they’re on their own.

____________

On Tuesday evening, Israeli F 15 fighter/bombers attacked the air defenses surrounding the Palace of the Lion, residence of Syrian President Assad and his family.  Israeli sources say the raid was authorized by President’s Trump and Putin.

If the American and Russian government’s have “green lighted” Israel’s efforts to decapitate the Syrian government, which is the only explanation for tonight’s action, it is a significant departure from stated objectives.

On Tuesday evening, after midnight, powerful explosions rocked the area around Damascus, resulting from Israeli raids targeting an important and sensitive location for the Syrian government’s air defense battalion, which is responsible for protecting Assad’s presidential palaces in Damascus.

Some sources from inside the city confirmed that the Israeli F15 Eagles bombed the strongest air defense battalion of the system in Mount Qassion, the fortified fortress of the presidential Palace of the Lion. All the radars and military systems in the military facility were cleared and settled on the ground.

Renewed Israeli raids on the sites of the regime reveals false allegations made by “Bashar Jaafari” a few days ago, Moscow sent a strong message to the Israeli side against the backdrop of raids on the city of Palmyra last Friday, on the order of President Putin to the Russian Foreign Ministry to recall the Israeli ambassador in Moscow the day after his return to Russia .

“Russia’s policy on Israeli strikes inside Syria has not changed,” Netanyahu was quoted as saying during a news conference. “Russia has not restricted our activities in Syria and I have made it clear to Putin that we will continue our strikes as long as we need them.

    The israeli air raids inside Syria are showing the (very bad) quality of the russian anti-aircraft defense systems.
    The S300 and S400 are essentially very expensive useless toys.

      May I present to you the wortless Haifa housewife, Ms Shakha Berghoot.

    If this had really happened, the story would also be on at least one of the other reliable sites like whatreallyhappened, RT or Russia Insider, among others.

    It isn’t. It’s made up.

    By posting this trash, VT is supplying ammunition to the liars who contend the independent news sources on the internet are fake. Shame on you.

    Using Israeli logic, if crimes against Jews never go into statute of limitation legally or ideologically then how come the Western countries can be their allies, how is it possible that they are confronting Arab and Muslim people ideologically for something they are not responsible for? Which Jews are/were ideologically prosecuted by Muslims, how could even the original pre-Israel Zionists know about Arabs? Israel is pissing on Yad Vashem with every day and hour of their prolonging of the Syrian war.

    The Israeli government don’t care about truth, they care about land first and then second come the Israelis. Israeli government doesn’t even care for Jews in particular where they are not beneficial for Israel. But when you make land as your God then all hell is open. It is an old game – land for life, much older than Israel or Jews or any nationality on this planet, there is no Judaic guideline or Judaic wisdom or walkthrough for it, there is no Cain for dummies handbook out there to take you through the levels of your goal.

    Doesn’t make sense considering Russia’s vast array of S-300/400’s aligned throughout Syria — isn’t protecting Assad a major reason of why they’re their? And, even IF the Israeli F-15 fighters registered “friendly” on their way IN to Syria, AFTER deploying their bombs on and around Assad’s fortress they should have been targeted — no?

    Something is definitely amiss but unfortunately par for the course in this complicated, fraudulent war (aren’t they all?).

    WTF?

  7. zman  March 23, 2017 at 7:02 am

    So, I guess that we can take it from this action that Israel can indeed take out Syrian air defenses? If not, then why did Syrian defenses not take out Israeli planes? Is the Russian system all they’re cracked up to be?..or is there validity to the claim that Russia compromised those systems, is this proof that Russia will indeed stab an ally in the back? That Israel can continue to do this smells. Russia’s trustworthiness is in jeopardy…which means their ability to sell their systems will also be in jeopardy. Is Russia wanting to also take the lead from the US in shooting themselves in the foot?

    Israel continues to prove to the rest of humanity that it has zero regard for international law, common decency and the total lack of any sound, moral judgement.
    This latest act of aggression against Syria by israel needs to be soundly condemned by the U.N. and everyone who has at least a modicum of moral fiber.
    Trump will say nothing in public.

    Dear All, Take a look at the name on the article. It is not Gordon’s, but Nana’s, working in a very dangerous environment, with electricity for like and hour or so a day, and a good part of the winter where she could get no gas. She has to hang out at the Dama Rose hotel to charge her phone up and have internet access. Her father was a Supreme Court Justice and she is a member of the Justice Minister’s tribe from Deir Ezzor. In the business this is considered a very good source. Taking Assad out would be a very aggressive act by Israel. Taking out his air defense might be a sending him a strong message. We will know more by what happens next, as always.

    • CitizenOfTheWorld  March 23, 2017 at 7:18 am

      I know the Dama Rose Hotel very well and at the rear entrance is a service gate to the Air Defense Ministry. Although I’m sure Nahed has a lot of connections and info I’m still shocked that Israel would actually commit such an act of blatant aggression and then be the first to declare it! usually they say we neither confirm nor deny any involvement and never admit to anything!!! Saying that Putin and Trump agreed to this makes it weird as well. I’m really baffled by this. bib must be out of his mind if he ordered such an attack without prior approval!

    • davor  March 23, 2017 at 12:24 pm

      Much appreciated. I also recommend for all who have time to listen the recent mr. Harris interview with ms. Al Husaini done here on VT. There is nothing like this on Syria online, at least not in English. A while ago she also did a great reporting on money trail from London to Isil. I share many of these articles with friends and others and I know it is hard for them to even comprehend something like this being bombarded all the time by MSM but ms Al Husaini stories are like sobering about Syrian war.

  10. Khalid Talaat  March 23, 2017 at 4:45 am

    This attack is a message to the Syrians. When we zionists are attacking you do not dare to defend yourself and use your air defense system; and to prove it to you we take out Assad’s defence unit. This is no less than a demand by Netanyahoo for total submission by Assad and Puttin. He is saying I am in control and should you resist me, I will terminate you. The attack in England is a news cover for the raid.
    There is only one effective response to this attempted humiliation. That would be an air strike on Bebe’s residence at night while he sleeps. No matter what the cost is for the mission and its consequences. If anything learned from Yum Kipur, is that zionist only respect those who make them bleed. Once they bleed they heed their own reality. An attack deep into Israel is the only thing that will sober up the rest of Israel into rejecting the Likudist or Jewish Fundamentalists.
    I am still suspicious of Puttin’s failure to impose a strict no fly zone over Syria from the beginning. He had the Libya precedent established for him and he was legally invited.
    What is Puttin made of is the question? His continued silence, if not followed by an effective response, will indicate collusion or submission at best.

      Update: Sometimes it is quiet beneficial to act upon the lies of a habitual liar. He bombed he says, it is only fair to bomb him back.

  11. Amelius  March 23, 2017 at 12:52 am

    If this is true, I hope Syria decides to strike the heart of Israel and makes sure they are finished forever. Shut them up for good and throw them in the dust bin of history, where they belong. Put them out of everyone’s misery. This imposter state of delusional khazarians, led by Talmud thumping satan worshippers, has been dragging the world to hell for 70 years. It’s about time they are held accountable.

    • JohnZ  March 23, 2017 at 6:33 am

      I’m with you. Target Nuttybombyou’s home or maybe even the Knesset.
      Syria deserves to retaliate big time.

  12. Detlef Reimers  March 22, 2017 at 9:43 pm

    Regardless of the truthfullness of this incident, Isreal will loose. It’s already loosing on a much greater front than most people might re. alize.

    If they go to war with Syria, Israel will loose all – that’s for shure. The forces against the last criminal paria state on the earth will not allow this to happen and they know how to achieve it.

    Speaking of the mind of the Israeli culprits, I think from their totally deranged and criminal world view such aggressive acts against any powerful neighbour state is a logical consequence but at the same time it shows what Zionism really is and always was from the beginning:antihuman, only serving a small atheistic elite inside Israel and elsewhere. This will shuerely come to an end in a way they didn’t expect.

    Bibi’s Endless War for Endless Peace is now right on his doorstep.

    Soon it will be on his streets.

  14. CitizenOfTheWorld  March 22, 2017 at 8:08 pm

    I doubt this is true. First of all nobody else reported this bombing and secondly Israhell isn’t in the habit of being the first to claim responsibility for an act of war. Once accused and everybody points to them they usually say “we neither confirm nor deny”. Bibi just wants to try and drive a wedge and plant mistrust between Russia and Syria. Why would Russia spend this much time and money then suffer many sanctions on it for being on the Syrian side then turn around and give Bibi the green light to assassinate President Assad. You never assassinate or try to assassinate a president of a sovereign state that isn’t at officially war with you then claim responsibility for it! Kind of odd and smells too fishy to me; something is amiss.

    • Raven Knight  March 22, 2017 at 9:16 pm

      This story was reported elsewhere. Here is the story in the Jerusalem Post. “Israel has declined to comment.” http://www.jpost.com/Breaking-News/Syrian-reports-claim-IDF-struck-regime-targets-near-Damascus-484822

      AFP was also reporting it as Breaking earlier on Twitter.

      CotW: If VT’s Bureau Chief says it happened, then it happened. I met her, know her & trust her.

      Israel’s Defence Minister recently threatened to bomb & eliminate all Syrian air defence systems.

      Of course, Russia & U.S. did NOT green-light any Assad assassination by Bibi & Israel.

      Bibi did this on his own — expecting back-up from Trump & Co. if Putin & Co. respond.

      It’s not coming. Trump can’t get U.S. military & Congress to cover Bibi’s ass for stupid stuff.

    • kaho  March 23, 2017 at 6:09 am

      I found nothing except one reference to VT. If it happened yesterday, the 22nd, then I wonder why the event is not more widely reported. But in any case it’s not the first time

      http://21stcenturywire.com/2015/01/20/israel-joins-forces-with-isis-tel-aviv-bombs-syria-for-sixth-time-in-18-months/

      So now you can just bomb your neighbors without even declaring war? I am quite sure that we learned in school that wars had to be declared. So apparently it is not correct what we learned in school. I find that very disappointing.

  15. wjabbe  March 22, 2017 at 7:36 pm

    Assuming this is true at face value, this is an act of war deserving an appropriate response from all injured parties. Their defenses were not effective if they could be destroyed so easily. We have a mad man in Tel Aviv and the U.S. if this is true.

  16. carsondyal  March 22, 2017 at 7:23 pm

    Assuming this story is true, and that’s beginning to become a big assumption on this website, why would Putin green-light Assad’s assassination when he has been helping his solid ally in the Middle East since Sept. 2015 defeat ISIS and all the other Western and Israel-supported terror groups? Trump giving Israel the O.K. to do this cowardly act? Plausible. Israel doing it on its own? Always possible. But why do you think both Putin and Trump saying, “Go ahead, murder Assad,” is the ONLY explanation?

    • JohnZ  March 23, 2017 at 6:41 am

      Isrealhell is attempting to drive a wedge between Russia and Syria.
      Won’t work. Nice try Bibi. Now wait for Syria to respond in kind….maybe
      as Bibi’s home gets blown to tiny bits and pieces.
