Israel Strikes Various Syrian Armed Forces And Alleged Iranian Targets, In "Retaliation" For IED Placement Attempt

Early on November 18, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) carried out several strikes on alleged Iranian Quds Force targets, as well as Syrian Arab Army positions inside Syria.

This was in response to detecting an alleged attempt by “an Iranian-led Syrian squad” to plant an IED on the Israel-Syria border near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.


“IDF warplanes attacked military targets belonging to the Iranian Quds Force and the Syrian army tonight in Syria. The attack damaged warehouses, command posts and military complexes, and batteries of surface-to-air missiles,” the IDF said in a statement.

The strikes hit eight targets from the Golan Heights to Damascus these allegedly include:

  • an Iranian military complex near Damascus International Airport;
  • a secret military barracks which acts as a housing complex for senior Iranian officials as well as visiting delegations;
  • a command post for Division 7 of the Syrian army which cooperates with the Quds force;
  • mobile surface-to-air missile trucks which fired towards Israeli jets during the strikes.

The military added that “the attack was carried out in response to the placement of explosive charges next to the border fence between Syrian and Israeli territory by a Syrian squad acting under Iranian instruction,” the statement said.

According to IDF Spokesman Brig.-Gen. Hidai Zilberman, the anti-personnel mines discovered on November 17th were actually planted several weeks ago “by local Syrians under the command of Iranian Quds Force.”

Syria’s state-run SANA news agency reported that Syrian air defenses intercepted the “Israeli aggression” in the South of the country and downed a number of missiles that had been launched.

SANA also reported that Syrian air defenses had intercepted the Israeli air strikes over the capital city of Damascus.

Three military personnel were killed and one was injured in the attacks; according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, some 10 personnel were killed. “It isn’t clear if the casualties were Syrian or Iranian-backed troops.”

Defense Minister Benny Gantz, who was on a tour of the Northern Command on November 17th, where he was briefed on the regional situation and troop readiness, held Syria responsible.

“We have long been prepared for the possibility of terror attacks in the northern sector,” he said. “The IDF has the capabilities and the determination to respond severely to any incident both on the Lebanese and Syrian fronts… I say clearly: Syria is responsible for what occurs on its territory.”

The residential building was targetted in the hope that important members of Iranian forces or political elite were in residence the rest of the targets were just smoke and mirrors as a cover.

The Israeli plan was to stoke tensions while they view Trump as pliable and swayable at present as its obvious he’d quite like to leave Biden a mess to clean up and the Israelis are banking on Trumps volitility.

johnny rotten

Isisrahell is in panic mode, he sees the possibility that his North American colony fights to the last man go away, sacrificing himself on the altar of zion, then he plays what he assumes are the last chances, but it doesn’t matter who is the fake commander in leader in america, america is in the dark and the end is getting closer to Zionist terrorism.

Netanyahu was picking cue from Trump. It was widely reported that Trump was planning some adventure against Iran and The Slimy,Protest-Infested, Covid-Scared, Israel could not let Trump’s ‘good’ intentions go to waste


a political suicide for any politician in the disunited states of A to attack Iran and not even trump would be that dumb even if son in law, prime slime kushner, urges him onwards.

Ray " Uncle Sam"

i disagree! i times of war the USA always kept its President! That is still Trump!

Whats the use of small strikes?iran has a lot of manpower


I heard Russia has so good jamming systems, they don’t even need AA missiles.

Israel also have good Jam system and Iron Dome..and Palestine rockets use to hit Israeli territory…if you launch a cruise missile with just INS guide Jamming system is useless….but I remember you that 2 Israeli harop drones were Jamming in Armenia and both change the course when wre flying over Armenia ( not NK) and crashed in Georgia…also another Israeli drone crashed in Daguestan after chage the course…


“and Palestine rockets use to hit Israeli territory”

You know, there is a buge difference between hitting a teritory and gitting a target ;)

Palestine dont mind target!..if they destroy a military radar..Israel will never recognize beside have no importance!..for palestine the main purpose is to hit cities and people in panic running to shelters like in Gaza people have to do in every Israeli attacks!..while Israel just attacks poor SAA soldiers and warehouses…they didnt attack directly to Iranian troops despite some pro israeli/oposition sources claim and even less attack the heavy bunkers of Al Kiswah which have never been destroyed or damage as we can see in Google Earth because it need antibunker bombs and therefore IAF jets have to fly high and inside Syrian airspace to destroy it risking be shot down


Palestinians can’t* target. Period. Meanwhile Israel can target anything in Syria. If Russia allow SAA to open a S-300 radar, in few hours the whole batery is destroyed.

Rhodium 10

Could be happen…like if Russia allow SAA to use Bastion P guide by Glonass( 2.900km/h in extreme low fligtht)..in few hours all israeli warships in Haifa are sunk…


That will never happen, Chabad would assassinate Putin before the call would reach Assad.


but a hail of icbm:s from the Caspian Sea aimed on tel aviv, haifa and various what not places in palestine will drive the jews into the sea, for good or they’ll will be pushing up daisies in the negeve desert. rest assured.


Here we go again,Zionist terror without any real response,this has been going on or years,after all this time they still use Lebanese airspace.


Yeah yeah, you successfully kicked “Iran” out of Syria for the hundredth time with your pin-prick attacks on Syrian positions.

More likely in response to blowing up the stolen oil smuggling operations which ends up in Israel.
Gotta show they are not pleased with losing all that sweet cheap oil, they were counting on it dammit!


the jews in palestine will soon rot in hell and their crimes will not be forgotten by the world. and netanyahu will face icc in den hague and spend the rest of his life in a prison in Iran (although it would be better to make the world a better place by stringing him up in a lamppost).

How many years now is it that Israel has been pretending that they can turf Iran from out of Syria?

Turning into a major embarrassment and about as successful as America has been in Afghanistan.

The military added that “the attack was carried out in response to the placement of explosive charges next to the border fence between Syrian and Israeli territory by a Syrian squad acting under Iranian instruction,” the statement said.

This would be the same land that is of Syria, but occupied by Israel presumably?

Graham Steinberg

This barbaric, malicious ‘neighbour’ along with it’s fake peace deals ? Just continues to mock & humiliate the arab world…….

May it take it’s synagogues to Mecca & enjoy the “hospitality” afforded by the butchers of Yemen.

Brothers in blood…….

İsrail should NUKE them idiot mollas

Rodney Loder

Well you will support the narrative of the homosexual Sid Loder and his Freemason Jew maggots being in-charge of the Holy Ghost (telepathic singularity), this is the result of 67 years of evil people using mind control to take over the universe, since they murdered my mother that is, I was only 3 are the time often speaking from the cradle telepathically, my mother opposed the maggots using me to promote profanity and donating me Jesus Christ on to Israel.

Just a few more years of training and the Jews are sure I’ll lead them back back, training is not pleasant but better than being a Freemason maggot Jew.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
