Syrian War Report – December 5, 2017: Israeli Forces Launch More Missiles On Syria


…from SouthFront

As ISIS’ self-proclaimed Caliphate collapsed in Syria, the Israeli military intensified their strikes on forces and facilities belonging to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies. The goal of the effort is to weaken pro-government forces ahead of a possible new round of escalation in the region.

On December 4, warplanes allegedly from Israel conducted airstrikes on the Dumair Airbase. According to reports, the airstrikes hit the radar installation and destroyed it.

On December 5. Israeli warplanes launched missiles on the scientific research center in the area of Jumraya in northern Damascus. According to the Syrian state-run media, Syrian air defense systems intercepted three of the missiles. The rest of the missiles – 3 or 4 – hit the target.

The Tiger Forces and their allies have liberated 5 villages and 3 hills from ISIS in the province of Deir Ezzor.

Government troops have captured the villages of Khutaytah, Abbas, Mazra’at Shamr, Qit’ah, Mujawwadah, the Nusuriyah Mountain and the hills of Bani and Khinzir. The Tiger Forces also outflanked and stormed the ISIS-held village of Jalaa – one of the last ISIS strong points in the area.

The SAA and the Tiger Forces are now in only about 12km from reaching their counterparts in the area of al-Bukamal. The rapid advance of pro-government forces show that the ISIS defenses have de-facto collapsed in the Euphrates Valley.

  1. They thought Iran would not be a smart move. What nation gave permission, if any, for the fly over of these war planes to attack Syria.

  2. The arrogance and insolence of Israel is a reflection of massive U.S. support however corrupt that support may be. Many U.S. citizens do not approve of our support of the crimes of Israel against its neighbors. But all we can do is talk. Only when enough Americans wake up and demand their government stop supporting an international criminal outlaw nation Israel will anything change. The whole situation is very sickening to put it mildly. Even the Russians refused to respond directly to illegal warfare by Israel.

  3. They will get theirs. It is written. Israel, an illegal state which can’t exist one day without US & UK support. When the respective populations wake up to the facts that their governments are co-opted through bribery, with dual citizens in power who serve not them, and the israeli funded lobbies are foriegn agents, and the taxes they pay are being stolen by same. That will be judgement day. Am I lieing.

  4. If a bottle rocket leaves Gaza and “lands in an empty field” in Israel “doing no damage” – as they almost always do – the Israelis wail that “No country can tolerate a rain of missiles coming down on them”, and proceeds to bomb the crap out of Gaza. US CongressClowns call that “self defense.” Yet when Israel rains destructive missiles on Syria… the Ziomedia again calls it “self-defense”. What sickening hypocrisy!
