On November 13 afternoon, a series of Israeli airstrikes hit a key air base in Syria’s central region causing human and material losses.
A military official said in a statement to the state-run Syrian Arab News Agency that Israeli fighter jets launched an aerial attack on Shayrat Air Base in the eastern Homs countryside from the direction of Tripoli and Hermel in Lebanon’s northern region.
“Our air defense means confronted hostile missiles and were able to shot down some of them,” the unnamed official said.
The official went on to acknowledge that two soldiers were killed and three others were wounded as a result of the aerial attack. He also confirmed that the air base sustained some material losses, without providing any details.
Shayrat Air Base was attacked by Israel on several occasions in the last few years. The air base is not known to host any personnel of Lebanon’s Hezbollah or any other group backed by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.
A video that allegedly shows multiple large explosions at the air base surfaced online after the attack. The video is yet to be verified, however.
This was the first confirmed Israeli attack on Syria this month. On November 8, a series of strikes hit al-Qa’im crossing on Syria’s border with Iraq, killing at least ten people including Iranian nationals. The target of the strikes was allegedly an Iranian fuel and weapons shipment destined for Hezbollah in Lebanon. A recent report by The Wall Street Journal said that Israel was behind the strikes. However, this is yet to be confirmed by the Syrian or Iraqi officials.
Israel tuned down its attacks on Syria in the last few months. Officials from Tel Aviv claimed in October that recent Israeli attacks had destroyed about 90% of Iran’s military infrastructure in Syria. The officials said that Iran can no longer transfer weapons to Syria, manufacture weapons on the country’s soil, or establish bases there with ease.

SouthFart admin get your fingers out of your ass and get rid of this troll!
Imagine where the Russian Federation might be right now had they wiped out with force the F-U.K.U.$. contingent from Aleppo East and West in 2015?… And that Vladimir Putin had never restated the position that “9/11 was not an inside job” in 2017 in the Duran interview 3 years after the Maidan coup???…. Oh… And THEN promptly tendered the Russian Federation’s membership in the Ca$in0 HQ’d at 405 East 42nd Street, New York, NY, 10017, USA when Yanukovitch was expelled in February 2014 with the statement that ANY attack on the peoples of the Eastern Donbas would be an attack on the Russian Federation!!!…
Perhaps Vitaly Churkin might still be alive?!!!
May the “$ix-$ided” $tar” steering committee aka joe9211, kozlan & pal$ commence with their blocking out all cogent commentary in this section with their “diarrhea” at both ends starting in 5… 4… 3… 2… 1…
Behold Exhibit A: https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/zelensky-and-bush-give-joint-pro-war-presentation and the war criminal of war criminal(s) that V. Putin protected when he declared “repeatedly” that 9/11 was NOT an inside job instead of standing firm to his obligations and duties under the UN charter his government signed that was to ensure that 9/11 “could not” and “would not” be used to start wars and occupations starting with Afghanistan and Iraq that inevitably led to the demise of “Ukraine” by habitually looking the other way!… Sure would have kept these two https://www.911research.wtc7.net/wtc/groundzero/cleanup.html in line ???
And coulda… woulda… shoulda… to all of the things mentioned above!
And wouldn’t it have been nice to see the Russian Federation leading the security council in votes to investigate 3 buildings 2 planes that would have seen The “Dick” and Bush frog marched to a war crimes tribunal at the Hague where they should have seen court martial and swinging from the “end of a rope” for their crimes against humanity!
