Israeli Airstrike On Damascus Thwarted Iranian Attack On Israel - Report

Damascus following the last night strike

The last night Israeli airstrike on an Iranian position south of the Syrian capital of Damascus may have prevented a pre-planned Iranian attack on Israel, the Israeli Jerusalem Post reported on May 9.

The Syrian Observatory for Humanitarian Rights (SOHR) said that missile launchers and an ammo depot of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) had been destroyed by the Israel airstrike on the al-Kiswah area south of Damascus. The SOHR also claimed that eight members of the IRGC had been killed in the airstrike along with seven pro-government fighters. However, these claims are yet to be confirmed.

Although that the Israeli Army lowered the level of alert in the Golan Heights on May 9, Israeli sources reported that dozens of battle tanks and armored vehicles were deployed near the front with Syria. Reportedly, the Israeli Air Force also increased its activity over the Golan Heights.

Local observers believe that Israeli airstrike will not deter the IRGC, if it is indeed determined to strike the Israeli Army. However, there is no doubt that the recent Israeli airstrikes on the IRGC positions caused a notable damage to the Iranian force’s operations in Syria.

      tell iran to stop messing around, it might just save Syria from other attacks.

      • Merijn

        Better stop messing around, it might just save You Hasbara pathetic Little Cunt from other attacks.

      • Concrete Mike

        Hey you guys started this in 1953, it’s your mess, you created this problem with your own arrogance and stupidity. Plus you have the audacity to blackmail Syria, fuck you you uncultured swine, before you come here and mouth off look at some history books.

        You shoulda left Iran alone, like you should leave them alone now. But you cowards got nothing better to do.

        Fucking coward goat fucker supporter, you don’t even have the balls to use your real name.

      Russia and their allies Syria, Iran, Lebanon, Palestine and Jordan face serious provocations from US and Israel.

      • FlorianGeyer

        Yes indeed. Jordan is a powder keg at the moment . The average Jordanian despises Israel and the US.

      • sagbotgamot

        Jordan? I thought they are about to become a zionist Arab, like the Saudis

        • Nick

          Both states are Monarchies without any real public support.

        • Rob

          They are not Saudi wahabis. They are real Muslims but US and UK have occupied their country like Syria. Now US and UK military bases are there in Syria, so why Syrian government have invited them, no. They have occupied Syrian land by force and use it for military bases. Just few countries are brave in Muslim world like Pakistan because Pakistan is a nuclear power. Second Pakistan is ally with China and Russia.

          • You can call me Al

            The UK has no base in Syria; did you mean France ? — even they have no base and are staying at the US base.

      • James R

        Russia may be an ally of Syria, however it is clearly more a competitor than ally of Iran. Russia is closer to Israel than Iran, that is why they react correctly when the US strikes Syria but do not say a word or lift a finger when Israel conducts far more serious attacks on a regular basis.

    Nice of them to line the tanks up so close together like that. Now it will only take one missile to take them out.

    Notice in the left map there is no Israel. Israeli migrants scaring from this map a lot.
    After full liberation of Syria all Muslim nations Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Russia, China and Pakistan will come together to liberate Palestine from illegal European migrants Israel by using their own weapons and army units. They will not stay calm until to erect the Palestinian flag on Tel Aviv.

    • Frank Behrens

      some international pills will liberate your brain from some serious deep sitting problems…for inferiority complexes which lead to some illusion of grandeur…we recommand some serious long time (therapeutic) work.

      Or as it put someone who should know better :

      “We have offered them (the Arabs) a sensible way for so many years. But
      no, they wanted to fight. Fine! We gave them technology, the latest, the
      kind even Vietnam didn’t have. They had double superiority in tanks and
      aircraft, triple in artillery, and in air defense and anti-tank weapons
      they had absolute supremacy. And what? Once again they were beaten.
      Once again they scrammed [sic].
      Once again they screamed for us to come save them. Sadat woke me up in
      the middle of the night twice over the phone, “Save me!” He demanded to
      send Soviet troops, and immediately! No! We are not going to fight for
      them.[380]”

    On the Victory Day Parade 2018 celebrations in Moscow, Putin humiliated Netanyahu very badly. Nobody shook hand with Netanyahu. LOL. Mr. Putin had asked to his generals that don’t let Netanyahu evil butcher land theif close to me. Netanyahu evil using US CIA and NATO against Russia and his allies Iran, Syria, Iraq, Palestine, Lebanon, Libya, Turkey, Pakistan, China etc. Mr. Putin will retaliate if time comes. At the moment Mr. Putin is busy in other very important tasks.

    • Don’t read butthurt replies

      Very disappointing that they invited that parasitic walking abortion of Netanyahu to that parade. Inviting him was like inviting Hitler. Lost some of my respect because of this. Maybe he wanted to show Netanyahu who and with what they will be messing with if they start a war? I don’t know.

      • Rob

        Netanyahu was uninvited guest. Russian don’t like Israeli migrants due to their affiliation with US and NATO. There are two powers in the world blue the US, NATO and Israel and red the Russia, China, Pakistan, Turkey, Iran, Syria, Iraq etc.

      • Vitex

        keep your friends close and enemies closer

    • Jose

      If you understand how Russia acts, you will see that it prepares very well before it acts. And the way of acting is completely different from the Westerners.
      If Russia does not act now, it is because it is not prepared.

      • Merijn

        Or is preparing..or is prepared…or playing the waiting game…Time is on their side… the Longer it takes the better it will be…

    • Amine Mansouri

      countries don’t have allies, have interests

      • Merijn

        You have Good interests & Bad interests… Stealing Gold, Killing Peoples & Taking over Countries are Bad interests…

      • Rob

        Union is strength is the best interest and best policy. The political terrorists US and Israeli migrants want that their enemies divide so they will easily butcher nations and will take their lands. Example is Palestine, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Yemen etc.

    • Manuel Flores Escobar

      Netanyahu and Putin both with the St George ribbon on his jackets is a good sign vs Nato backed Nazis gangs in Baltic countries and Ukraine!

      • Rob

        Netanyahu is despicable. Mr. Putin hate Netanyahu the land theif and small kids kidnapper and butcher.

    • Django

      As we know, don’t ever shake hands with psychopaths, cowards and war criminals …

  • Rob

    The problem is the weak security. All Muslim countries should establish check posts where they should thoroughly check each vehicle for IEDs from outside and inside and the bottom of the floor by mirrors. They should do this until Israel is completely dismantled and all Israeli migrants are deported.

    • Merijn

      Just Chop Up them Wahhabis… will save a lot of IEDs & Troubles…they are Undercover-Zionazis

  • Rob

    Operation in Hama/Idlib and Daraa/Golan Heights will start together under Russian S-400, S-300 and Pantsir-S air defense systems and iskander ballistic missiles to retaliate immediately to any provocative coward attacks from US, UK, France and Israeli migrants. If strong air defense and Iskander ballistic missiles are not provided then Syria and their allies should not put their poor soldiers’ lives in risk for operation there.

  • Rob

    At the moment the SAA and their allies operations are continue in three pockets
    1. Yarmouk 2. Rastan and 3. Homs/DeirEzzor

    After liberating these 3 pockets the next is
    1. Hama and Idlib province.
    2. Daraa and Golan Hights.
    3. Al Tanf.
    4. Aleppo, Raqqa, Hassaka provinces.
    5. Whole Palestine.

    When Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Afghanistan and Libya liberated from foreign interventionists then there will be no fight. The holy lands of Arab should also be liberated from Saudi terrorists.

    • Amine Mansouri

      then iranian scumbags will control all of the great arab territory. FUCK IRAN, FUCK PERSIA, AND FUCK ISRAEL

      • Rob

        Are you with Israel or with Iran? Take one side because both are against each other. Israeli migrants are evil terrorists and Iran help Muslim countries to defend them against Israeli terrorists.

  • Promitheas Apollonious

    whose the idiot that arrange the tanks to be one next to the other. The rainbow queen of their parades they so proud off?

  • Feudalism Victory

    So what Iran does Iran pull back now?

    • FlorianGeyer

      Iran will wait patiently for a hysterical Israel to make a mistake I suspect.

  • Turbofan

    This story is a true as the story of Jack and the Beanstalk.Israel is bombing women and children in Syria..thats all

  • Vitex

    whatever. why would the iranian guards corps attack israel when that would give the “international community” the mandate to “bomb iran back to the stone age” as they clearly intend to do anyway?

    • Merijn

      Yeah let them start…there will be a lot of International Anger if they start another War… their Lies are pretty much done… A lot of Western Peoples at least start to doubt the Official Western-Government’s Narratives… which is a good Sign…

    • FlorianGeyer

      Because it is just another fake narrative to justify an attack on Iran I would think Vitex.
      What Israel is concerned about is a land attack on Israel from Lebanon IF Iran is attacked that would negate much of the Israeli firepower if the land attack was able to capture Israeli towns and cities.

    • scott_ewing

      My thoughts exactly.

  • Vitex

    here’s a theory – the Israelis were striking at S300s deployed in Syria? Before they become operational?

    • pao

      Don’t think Russia would like that too much considering they are to be gifted to SAA….would be like watching their investment burn not to defend them.

      • FlorianGeyer

        It would also damage the reputation of the S300/400 systems and for that reason they would have been used I think.

    • Joe Dirt

      Why would Israel bomb S300s and then meet with Putin the next day?

      • Vitex

        They’ve done stranger things.

        • scott_ewing

          Operation Cast Lead was pretty strange …

          • Vitex

            And USS Liberty.

    • Joe Dirt

      Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu traveled to Moscow to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin and participate in the Victory Day Parade in Red Square.

    • chris chuba

      I hope you are joking. So you think the Russians are so inept that they can’t protect a shipment of S300’s with their existing deployment of S3/400’s? Perhaps the legendary Mossad discovered the exact route the shipment was taking and did a surprise attack catching everyone off guard.

    • Ronald

      Maybe, but the very last ISIS pocket is tucked up against the Golan Heights, Israel is just trying to protect their “buffer”.

  • chris chuba

    FOX news hacks Southfront :-)
    Sure, why not, the lemmings in the U.S. will believe any fairytale.

    • Vitex

      A country that elects Trump or Macron (or John Key) will believe anything.

  • Toto Pinoccio

    Putin is a feeble old man.. cannot even protect Syria or Iran…Lol

    • Ace

      Said no intelligent person ever.

    • Rizzzzzzz

      Not his job too. First off . secondly he did enough by saving Assads ass and stopping the defeat and pro west/gulf monarchs anti Syrian/Iran agenda of completely taking over region

      • Toto Pinoccio

        Well, then he should exit Syria and avoid further humiliation

        • scott_ewing

          Should he now.

  • BL

    If one strike thwarted the attack, it wasn’t going to be much of an attack to begin with so the story is likely false.

  • Tchoutoye

    The headline of this article needs to be put in a bunch of quotation marks: one pair for it actually being a quote, and another pair for the sarcasm it displays.

  • Spit

    I have nothing in common with Muslims, but seeing what happened in Iraq.. So Many Children that never had a Chance.
    All of those Syrian Family’s… the American people where fooled.

  • Manuel Flores Escobar

    2 missile were intercepted and some parts fell in Higway Damascus Dera kiiled a couple in a car!…other missile hitted fell in a storage park!..Iranian souces have told that No IRGC have been killed or wounded!

  • Attrition47

    “Pre-planned”? When did anyone plan something after?

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      good question. I been wondering about that myself, but did not comment on it.

    • Bobby Twoshoes

      It’s a linguistic trick used by propagandists, this made-up word is supposed to be confused with “premeditated” which the listener is then supposed to associate with criminal acts and criminals are “bad guys” so the guys out to get them must be the “good guys” and therefore justified. Unfortunately this sort of thing is unavoidable when reporting on Israel.

    • goingbrokes

      Yes, lol. It means nothing but it makes ignoramuses think that it is terrible, underhand, treacherous and only done by israel’s enemies.

  • Joe Dirt

    On the same day USA rips up the Iran nuke deal, Israel bombs Iran in Syria. :D

  • chris chuba

    Israel (Bibi’s flaks) changed their story, now they are saying that Iran actually launched rocket attacks from Damascus.
    https://www.timesofisrael.com/sirens-sound-in-golan-heights-residents-urged-to-enter-shelters/

    Changing stories = BS along with illogical narrative, why would Iran launch moronic, futile, ineffective attack the day Trump withdraws from JCPOA, to underline that they are the Arch villains of the M.E.?
    Queue up FOX news to believe every word and go on a rant demanding war.

  • Smaug

    Given that the next article over is about how the Iranians fired missiles into the Golan, I would hazard to say that Israeli intelligence networks correctly anticipated an assault by one means or another.

  • leon mc pilibin

    They want another repeat of their sneaky 6 day war in 1967,where they pretended to be attacked ,when it fact they were the aggressors, as they destroyed their enemies air forces on the ground,all to justify a massive land grab,Golan Heights,West Bank,etc.Thats the reason for trying to sink the USS Liberty spy ship,to keep their evil act secret.They are nothing but thieving, warmongering scumbag,satanists.

    • scott_ewing

      The very establishment of Israel in 1948 was an invasion. The zionists (trash) have been playing victim ever since.

  • dcammer

    Blessed with the ultimate intellect the ruthless brilliance is a telling rejoinder of ethnic intransigence

  • Didier Favre

    This accusation reminds me strongly of the Douma false flag.

  • James R

    It is disappointing to me that obvious Israeli propaganda is reprinted uncritically here like this. The line that they prevented an attack on Israel is a sick joke, the aggressor is obvious here, they are the ones who have bombed Syria more than 100 times over the past five years, now the insurgents have failed, they are escalating these attacks with some childish lies thrown out in an attempt to mask that obvious fact. .
