Israeli Tanks Shelled Syria's Al-Quneitra Post Frequently Visited By Senior Hezbollah Commander

Early on June 17, Israeli battle tanks shelled a Syrian military post in the vicinity of the town of al-Qahtaniyah in the southern al-Quneitra countryside.

The post, which was located around 150 meters away from the separation line, belonged to the 90th Brigade, the largest unit of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) 1st Corps. The post usually hosts 12 Syrian soldiers. However, no casualties were reported as a result of the Israeli attack.

Local sources claimed that Munir Ali Naeem Shaito, a senior commander of Lebanese Hezbollah, visited the targeted post on several occasions in the past.

After the attack, the Israeli military dropped leaflets over al-Quneitra warning SAA service members from collaborating with Shaito, who is also known as “Jawad Hashim” and “Haj Hashim”. The leaflets included photos of Shaito along with Brig. Gen. Hussein Hammouch, commander of the 90th Brigade. Similar leaflets were dropped over the region last month.

This was the first Israeli attack on Syria since Naftali Bennett assumed office as the new Prime Minister of Israel on June 13.

Under Bennett’s predecessor, Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel launched a covert military campaign against Iranian forces and their allies in Syria. The last attack on Syria under Netanyahu command took place on June 8. Several targets were hit in central and southern Syria. At least seven SAA service members were killed.

“The Six-sided Star Symbol stands for Dualism. It’s the graphic representation of “As Above, so below”. Such as Hunab Ku, Yin-Yang, Atl-Tlachinolli and the Symbol of the Yggdrassil.”

Ya es hora de que el Ejército Sirio conteste este tipo de provocaciones, si una fuerza más débil como Hamas pudo confrontar a lo largo de 11 días al régimen Sionista, con misiles no muy sofisticados, me imagino que el SAA tiene mayor tipo de capacidades para dar una respuesta más seria a este tipo de provocaciones. Es el momento oportuno ya que el Ejército Israelí todavía se encuentra en estado de schok y de sorpresa luego, del reciente enfrentamiento con las facciones de la resistencia Palestina. Por lo tanto, no es el momento de dar señales de debilidad, si no que se debe dar una respuesta proporcional y precisa dada las circunstancias.

Exactly. Aren’t there supposed to be UN monitors there that should report this infraction and that any response is fully justifiable.

American False Idol Israhell

J-wish Orthod-x inbred idiots are the worst sub-human specimens on the planet, they are no better than their Isl-mic terrorist counterparts. If it was not for the American Jes-s Baptist terr-rists there would be no Isra-l as it exists today as the world’s greatest racist nation, profiteers of terror and ethnic genocide, the world would be at peace without this false idol of Isra-l, scourge of the earth.
