Recent Israeli Strikes On Syria Destroyed Compounds Near Lebanon’s Border, Killed Four Civilians

The August 19 Israeli strikes on Syria targeted three compounds near the town of Qarah which is located in the al-Qalamun Mountains, a just few kilometers away from the border with Lebanon.

On August 20, the Aurora Intel account on Twitter shared new satellite images of the targeted compounds which were located to the east of Qarah. All three compound were wiped out as a result of the Israeli strikes.

According to Aurora Intel , a fourth compound located to the west of the town was also targeted. This is yet to be verified via satellite images.

Lebanon’s Hezbollah maintains a fairly large presence near Qarah and in other parts of the Qalamoun Mountains where many bases of the Syrian military are located.

A source in the Syrian military had told the official Syrian Arab News Agency that the strikes hit targets near the capital, Damascus, as well as in southern Homs. Several Israeli munitions were reportedly intercepted by the Syrian Arab Air Defense Forces.

Casualties were reported a day after the strikes. Dr. Ahmad al-Sarim, head of Qarah’s town council, told Sham FM that four civilian workers were killed and three others were wounded in the aerial attack.

The strikes were launched from Lebanon’s airspace by warplanes of the Israeli Air Force. Beirut has issued an official complaint over the violation.

This was the second Israeli attack on Syria within a week. Late on August 17, the Israeli Defense Forces destroyed an observation post of the Syrian military in the southern governorate of al-Quneitra with guided missiles.

CORRUPT RUSSIAN SHIT HOLE

So once again the Russian pantsir fails to intercept anything. shocking news!

Sure … every time theres so much as a mortar launched in Syria a pantsir is there to shoot it down. Everyone knows that the Russians gave them to hezboulla and every Syrian household has at least one in the back yard. The Russians gave me one to keep the birds off my Raspberry bushes … I’m gonna take it duck hunting in the fall.

"Israel" is a terrorist NATO settler colony

This is worse than COVID. Zionism is the real pandemic.
