Support SouthFront

For the second time this month, Israeli warplanes struck an allegedly Iranian base located near the key Syrian city of al-Bukamal on the border with Iraq.

A Syrian source told al-Mayadeen that the airstrikes, which took place on September 17, targeted positions near the al-Bukamal border crossing.

“An attack, that was carried out an hour ago, targeted positions at the Iraqi-Syrian border near al-Qa’im and al-Bukamal, there were no victims [as a result],” the Lebanese channel quoted the source as saying.

The source didn’t reveal the exact location of the targeted positions. However, the Iranian-backed Fatemiyoun Brigade released several photos confirming that the al-Bukamal base was the target.

The same base was targeted by Israeli warplanes on September 9. FOX News reported that the base is going to be used by Iranian forces as a missile site.

These repeated Israeli airstrikes on Iranian positions near al-Bukamal could be aimed at hindering the reopening of the strategic border crossing between Iraq and Syria.

    There was an article posted stating that Putin told israeli PM not to attack Syria again and another that said that Putin gave the jews the OK; it appears that the latter is the case. Food for thought.

      Johnhelmer exposes oligarchs but Putin says “There are no oligarchs in Russia” Who is right?

        Good question. Nothing is as it appears to be.

    something drastic needs to be done to those squatters – can’t say what but it needs to get them evicted from palestine and probably worse than that to get things moving. however, once turkey, syria,iran and hebollah and various so called pmu groups are ready the squatters can look forward to being stretched and quartered and pinned to stakes from jerusalem to hell. they deserve nothing to save their grace for the simple reason they have no grace, just murders, just thievery and destruction of human lives on a scale that makes hitler seem like a toddler.

      Just when I agree with you about israel…you nonstop add Hitler into the scene. Why is that? There was no holocaust as has been verified many times. Hitler did no different than any leader today (Assad, Ruhani, Hamas, Nasrallah…just to name a few) to defend Germany and ethnic Germans in Poland. Are you living in Tel Aviv in a hasbara overcrowded room? The enemy of any moral state are jews.

          …in C.O.L.D. B.L.O.O.D. Let the ISIS (idf) mothers be killed in the same way. Let the ISIS (idf) become childless. DEATH TO ISRAEL NOW!!! DEATH TO THEIR HASBARA TROLLS!!! DEATH TO US GOVERNMENT AND THEIR ZIONIST JEW LOVING MONSTERS. AND DEATH TO ALL JEWS WHO CONDONE THIS!!!

    2. verner says:

      hitler is the measure the west uses to describe evil at its most extreme and I use hitler to describe the evil and destructive ways of the israelis which they by and large gets away with scot-free or with impunity in a manner that resembles what hitler did – think about it. murders and lebensraum objective and concentration camp gaza and theft of commodities, all from hitler’s playbook.nothing much to be surprised about except this takes place in broad daylight and hardly an objection from anyone.

    ISISRAEL is pure criminal scum, sum of dunmehs and Jewish Zionist Nazis. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1ef0d43c3c7e62f1813a233bb407eddbb9f5cb9a6b80c495e502f26afc228813.jpg

        israel is NOT a country, it’s a crime scene.

          israel is NOT a country, it’s a crime

      2. iosongasingsing says:

        That is why in Afghanistan the American Jews put Bin Laden and in Iraq Al Bagdadi, and are also allies of Bin Salman the ripper. Together with racist Israel they are the worst scum on the face of the earth.

    2. AleK says:

      True, but his ‘rivals’ – Gantz, Lieberman are probably even worse…

  4. Leon says:

    I read in several papers that on his last visit to Putin , Netanyahu was told that Russia won’t tolerate anymore strikes in Syria !!! It seems that Bibi wasn’t so afraid after this sternous warning.

    1. Real Anti-Racist Action says:

      Bibi does not fear Putin, Putin fears Bibi.
      All of Russia trembles before Israel.

        Nice one, I laughed loud, many thanks.

        Nutinyahoo is shetting in circles these days… He’s hoping he doesn’t get Arkancided.

      4. Silver Fox 183 says:

        Real Anti-Racist Action is a racist JEW of all people. Jews being the most racist and vicious race on Earth. The irony is amazing.

    2. xTheWarrior22 says:

      There are reports which say that Syria was given green light from Russia to use the S-300 System. Hopefully we will see some Zionists butchers captured by the SAA.

      1. Leon says:

        I hope you’re right

    3. Rhodium 10 says:

      I dont think Israel attacked Al Bukamal on 16 Sept…IDF attacked on 9 Sept and IRGC responded with a barrage of Fajr 5 rockets vs IDF military base…but on 16 Sep SAA sources denied any attacks in Al Bukamal…there was a IED strike vs SAA/NDF near Al Badía whre ISIS continue active!…other thing is that IRGC and Shia militia press Russia to defend Syria vs Israeli airstrike or they will have to deploy own Iranian SAD system there!

    4. Zionism = EVIL says:

      Nutter Yahoo was kept waiting for 3 hours and Putin did indeed gave him the finger and a lecture. Syria is now been given the green light to use S-300 to down Zionist junk. Hopefully, Nutter Yahoo will be in jail soon for the massive corruption the Jews are so well known for.

  5. Shy Talk says:

    Doesn’t look like much of a base

    1. Silver Fox 183 says:

      It’s not a base. They’re building a highway.

    2. Ashok Varma says:

      Israel’s poor PR is like Saudis now. This is just nonsense, there are no buildings or anything.

  6. dutchnational says:

    Like the alledged Iranian attacks on KSA, this is an alledged attack by Israel. Nobody presented any proof.

    1. dutchnational says:

      El Arabiya, a quasi official KSA newspaper, reported it was KSA bombing al Bukamal.

      1. Silver Fox 183 says:

        That seems wrong.

      2. PZIVJ says:

        KSA is butthurt about damage inflicted on them.
        So they want to make a BS statement about hitting back against a construction site?

  7. dutchnational says:

    Like the alledged Iranian attavks on KSA, this is an alledgedcattack by Israel. Nobody presented any proof.

    1. Silver Fox 183 says:

      Everybody knows who is doing these attacks. Israel is doing them from the SDF fake safe zone where the barbaric FUKUS invaders and occupiers are squatting on Syrian land, The traitor Kurds and the US let the Race of Satan use their territory to launch drones at these Iraqi militias. There’s only one party attacking these militias and it’s the Zionist entity.

  8. dutchnational says:

    Weird commenters here condemning Israel for what on second thought appears to be KSA bombing Iranian proxies, which is, in a weird way, totally logical,

    1. Silver Fox 183 says:

      Nope it’s the Zionist cancer that is behind these attacks. KSA is helping them though.

  9. Saso Mange says:

    They try to provoke response by Iran. Have been doing it for so long, poke in order to provoke.

  10. DaBoiiiii says:

    Can we stop calling Iranian backed militias “Iranian Forces”?

    They didn’t bomb the Iranian army or IRGC. They bombed allies of their fighting in Syria. 2 different things that carries a lot of nuances.

  11. Damien C says:

    If those photos are genuine then these were low yield missiles rather than the higher grade that one would expect from Israeli warplanes.
    The damage to the 80mm flat roof is minimal a heavier load would have moved it 100mts from its posts if now shredded entirely.
    The JCB looks like it was hit with an RPG than an airstrike

    Perhaps drones dropping motar rounds

  12. RichardD says:

    The SADF needs to upgrade the Dier Ezzor/Al-Bukamal region air defense capabilities. Pantsir, BUK, S-300, related radar and some MIG 29s would be helpful.

  13. John says:

    A construction site was hit, wierd.

    1. Silver Fox 183 says:

      They are obviously bombing the construction sites where Iraq and Syria are building a new highway to link the two countries. The Synagogue of Satan is determined to stop this highway.

  14. RichardD says:

    Where are these strikes originating from and whose airspace is being used?

    1. PZIVJ says:

      Might be from the huge airbase Ain Assad in Iraq. This would a good approach to hit targets from the dessert side.

  15. Zionism = EVIL says:

    Hardly a “camp”, a mud hut in the middle of nowhere. The Zionist arseholes are bigger liars as the Saudi scum. This in not even funny or worth commenting.

  16. Ashok Varma says:

    Am I missing something? where is the camp? looks like a few bricks and sand.

  17. Willing Conscience (The Truths says:

    Netanyahu is about to go out with a big bang himself now so he won’t be sending anymore jets in after the new government is formed, someone else will be doing that, and that’s if they do at all.
    The Israeli/Arab voters have come out in force this year and voted in one huge block, so it’s even possible after it’s all done and dusted, that the Arab block could actually help form part of the official opposition party, and then be privy to all the privileges that will entail, and wouldn’t that would make the Zionist choke like they never have before LOL.
    The opposition leader is privy to a lot of the same sensitive information the prime minister has available to him/her according to their political setup, which means the Arabs and anti Zionist political groups will now get to see a lot of the Zionists dirty little secrets, and also be be able to pass on to Iran some of Israel’s most sensitive security information if they want to, LOL LOL LOL.
    But that’s only if they do get enough numbers to form an opposition block, and it’s looking like they have a very good chance to, the loss of that US stooge Bolton has shocked the Zionist voters and made them turn on their leader in panic, they then voted for the next most pro Zionist party they could find, and cut their own stupid throats with their protest votes, LOL LOL LOL.
    Bye bye Bolton, bye bye Benji, thank you Trump. Oh and doesn’t Benji have about 20 years of jail time coming to him when he finally leaves office and faces the courts, LOL LOL LOL, I’ll bet the Iranians are dancing up a storm right now, LOL LOL LOL. Before Bolton got the sack it was predicted Benji would still be able to form a majority government despite all the corruption allegations, so I guess the loss of their most vocal warhawk in the US government had a lot to do with this outcome, and I suspect all the pro Zionist parties will be now looking at Trump with suspicion and confusion too, they’ll be thinking which Zionist puppet in the US administration will be next to get the axe from that insane madman Trump, how can we ever really trust him again, he just killed our greatest warrior just before we went to battle, LOL LOL LOL.
    Bye bye Bolton bye bye Benji, no more buttons for you to press anymore, well Benji might be pushing the button on his cell door to call a prison guard from time to time, but hopefully that’s all he’ll be doing soon.

  18. Bob says:

    Netanyahu just faced a general election – and it hasn’t gone very well – he desperately needs a ‘security issue’ to try form some sort of coalition government and secure executive power – because out of office and without protection from highest political office, Israeli prosecutors can come after him over raft of corruption issues. Netanyahu is a basic sociopath – he will do anything to secure his own skin.
