RT/Moscow: Two civilian airplanes bound for Qatar were reportedly used as cover by Israeli jets launching missiles from Lebanese airspace against targets near the Syrian cities of Homs and Quneitra.

Syrian air defenses engaged incoming missiles shortly after midnight local time on Thursday, both near Homs in central Syria and Quneitra in the south, on the armistice line with Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. Following the attack, reports appeared that at least two flights – one passenger, one cargo – had to change course to avoid getting struck by air defense missiles.

  1. Israel seem hellbent on destruction and human suffering – well the leadership that is – are everyday people in this country or aware? I guess they can’t be and must be complicit given the palenstein plight. Just abhorrent, wheres the outcry from the media?!

    • THE GADFLIES OF GAD

      That’s how the Zionist Gads fly: gadflies on a wing and a prayer.

      When the wanton Arab boys come calling in arms and the arms of Karma, the ‘righteous’ renegades might do worse than quote Shakespeare’s “King Lear” as their enemies run amok:

      “As flies to wanton boys, are we to the gods, they kill us for their sport.” And who is to say they didn’t have it coming.

      “Not I,’ said the sparrow, ‘with my little bow and arrow.” – But ME said the beast, I’m the entire Middle East!

  2. Shouldn’t be too much longer before these IDF pussies find themselves shot down. It appears IDF is using the larger aircraft at random to use as cover, as they depart the airport. Perhaps one or more of these commercial aircraft might be modified to make an attack on the IDF planes having been slipped into the regular traffic at a moment no risk is posed to commercial operations. Or, some other sneaky, dirty, lowdown trick that Israel would approve of to knock these fighters out of the sky. Israel is begging to lose these planes.

    • “…and the world will support whoever shot them down.”

      Except in the USA and western Europe where it will be viewed as “Arab terrorist aggression against the poor Israeli Jews who just want to live in peace”.
