Netanyahu Claims Putin Ok’d Attacks on Syrian Army



Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that he has told Russian President Vladimir Putin that Israeli forces will continue airstrikes in Syria if they deem it necessary.

“If there is feasibility from an intelligence and military standpoint – we attack and so it will continue,” Netanyahu said during a visit to China, adding that he had informed Putin of Israel’s intentions.

According to the Jerusalem Post, the Israeli PM also dismissed reports that Russia was insisting that Israel cease its military operations on Syrian territory.

On Monday, Syrian President Bashar Assad told visiting Russian MPs that he is counting on Russia to prevent further Israeli attacks on Syrian soil and to help Damascus avoid a full-blown conflict with Tel Aviv.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry summoned the Israeli ambassador to Moscow, Gary Koren, to demand explanations for the airstrikes Israel conducted near the Syrian city of Palmyra on Friday morning. Israeli Defence Force (IDF) warplanes hit several targets near Palmyra, allegedly destroying advanced arms provided to the Lebanese militant movement Hezbollah.

Syria’s air defense force fired anti-aircraft missiles at the Israeli planes as they were returning to base. Syrian media reported that one plane was downed, while Israel denied any losses.

Israel also said that it shot down one of the interceptor missiles with its Arrow long-range SAMs, which saw the first-ever use of the system in battle.

After the incident, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman threatened that “next time, if the Syrian aerial defense apparatus acts against our planes, we will destroy it.”

In January, Damascus accused Tel Aviv of bombing the Mezzeh military airport west of the country’s capital. The airport was rocked by multiple explosions, with ambulances rushing to the scene.

The IDF has violated Syrian air space on a number of occasions, even before the conflict broke out in the country back in 2011.

Possibly the most infamous incident occurred in 2007 when an alleged Israeli raid destroyed a suspected nuclear reactor in Syria’s Deir ez-Zor governorate.

  1. The insane do as insanity does, and we bear the cost silently. With the (s)election of Trump into an office no longer in check, or balance, the question to ask is how we got here.
    The answer is fear, and the causal agent disappeared in the wreckage of 911. An event so well conceived it devasted man’s collective psyche, and ability to reason. It allowed Bush 2 to declare war on terror, a war without end. How crazy are we? Professional inquery begins with logic. Who benefits from the crime? Also, who didn’t? Well certainly not the true muslim, and not you or I. So who then? History has proven the real power lies within us, but we never use it, we forfeit. I argue times are as bad now as in 1650 England. Power absolutely corrupts. By design we are very confused, we trust not the news, not our teachers, not the air we breathe, and not God. When the powers have consumed everything, they will feed on their own. A consolation? No, we paid for the meal, funded the entire evil fare. Is this not mass suicide, and insane? Can we stop it?
    Short of armed revolution may I suggest for 1 week no one, yes not any one is goes to work. Think about it. Sound impossible? Well haw about we start with 20% participation.They will feel the message.

  2. Yea, the 2007 incident coincidently happened a few days after the attempted theft of nuclear weapons “accidentally” loaded onto a B52 which was forced down at Barkley, the then launching pad for all things Iraq. So, the obvious game there was to nuke the place, and then say they hit a nuke plant, “look the mushroom is proof” ! I’ll never forget it because the press release was as close to an open admission as I had heard. Anyone who ever worked a flight line knew it was.

  3. If you looked up the word “liar” in a dictionary you would find Nitinyahoo’s picture. What a psychopath.

  4. Assad should call his bluff. Putin will likely back him. Netanyahu is a disgusting war criminal. Shoot a few US planes down too since they are also there illegally without permission.

  5. Who still believes a well know liar ? There are a lot of other infos about Nuttenyahoo and Putin in Fulford´s weekly report. Whom do you think I personally trust more ?
