Rockets Intercepted Over Golan Heights, As Explosions Reported At Damascus Airport

In the early morning of November 19th, four rockets allegedly fired from Syria were intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome defense system over the Golan Heights.

All of the projectiles were intercepted and there were no damages and no casualties, according to the Israeli side.

After the incident, Israel’s Golan Regional Council said no special safety precautions would be put in place, following consultations with the military. The organization urged residents to keep to their routines.

Around the same time, local Syrian media reported that explosions were heard at Damascus airport, but there’s no other details provided.

Both reports, of the rockets launched towards Israel and the explosions at Damascus airport happened at roughly the same time.

The situation in Northern Israel has been calm for a while, but on November 18th, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) launched “surprise” military exercise in the area.

The drill, overseen by IDF Comptroller Lt. Gen. Ofer Sarig, is taking place in the Jezreel Valley and Upper Galilee and is to conclude on November 19th.

A military spokesperson said that IDF reservists were being called up and warned local residents to expect increased movement of emergency forces and military vehicles in the coming days.

The IDf claims that the drill will test the Northern Command’s “readiness and operational capabilities.”

This alleged northern border flareup came after the IDF and the Gaza-based Islamic Jihad group had an escalation in the week ending on November 17th. Israel launched a precision strike on Gaza, that killed Baha Abu al-Ata – an Islamic Jihad commander, and his wife.

At the same time, a target in Damascus was also struck, but Akram al-Ajour, another Islamic Jihad commander survived the attack. The IDF provided no comment on the Damascus strike.

Following that Islamic Jihad launched hundreds of rockets towards Israeli targets, to which Israel retaliated. The only victims were reported to be Palestinian civilians and Islamic Jihad members.

In August, Israel claimed that it had struck targets in Syria to thwart a drone attack by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ elite Quds Force. Syrian opposition activists reported three deaths in the attack.

    Burn the kikes!

  2. Free man says:

    Syria has no interest in attacking Israel.
    These are the Iranians that are trying to divert attention from the murder of unarmed of Iranian protesters by the security forces of the mullahs regime.

    1. Ishyrion Av says:

      First of all, Golan Heights are Syrian territory, and Syria can fire as many rockets it wants there.
      Second, Israel has no right to attack targets in another country, respectively in Syria.
      You are brainwashed.

      1. Free man says:

        “…and Syria can fire as many rockets it wants there.” — You’re kidding right? Assad doesn’t want to commit suicide.
        In my opinion neither Israel nor Syria should fire at each other. In this case, I think it’s an Iranian operation.

        1. 1691 says:

          Honey, regardless of what you think or feel this is no news. Israhell is running out of original ideas to start ww III thus they are playing again with their proxies. It’s a jew game. The Syrians and Iranians are having fun watching the desperado clowns.

          1. Free man says:

            “… Iranians are having fun watching …” – The thing is that Iranians are not having fun now. They kill each other.

          2. 1691 says:

            :)

        2. Ceasar Polar says:

          No relation to iran whatsoever. Syria is firing anti-missile batteries against a IOF from occupied Palestine, has nothing to do with Iran, but it is Syria’s right of self-defense.
          Go away ZioNazi troll

          1. Free man says:

            Written by an Iranian troll who supports the murder of Iranian civilians by the oppression regime of the mullahs.

          2. Ceasar Polar says:

            You got it 100% wrong. So you prefer the dictators like MBS that slaughters journalists in his embassies ? Or Egyptian Sisi that jails and torture and execute journalists and opposants ?
            Just get lost ZioNazi troll, you are being located in occupied Palestine.
            It is a fight between ZioNazi’s evil, and the will of the People’s (axis of Resistance), anyone with a heart will support Iran, Jihad al islam, Hezbollah, the Houthis against ZioNazis aggressors and Thieves!
            Get lost already!

          3. Nassim7 says:

            A strawman argument

          4. Free man says:

            So you support the murder of unarmed Iranian civilians by the mullahs regime because other leaders are also bad.
            What a distorted logic you have there in the terrorist regime of the mullahs.

          5. Ishyrion Av says:

            No, I think he wants to say: “you’ve got an obsession, baby”
            You don’t give a damn about Iranians, otherwise you would give your resignation from a troll job in the service of those who want Iran off the map.
            I think your idol Pompeo said: Iran has to chose: starve or submit. Only it’s not Iran (a country) but Iranians (the people).
            So get lost, fartkenstein!

          6. Free man says:

            The mullahs regime kills unarmed protesters on Iranian city streets. that’s a fact.
            All the other stuff you wrote is a collection of crap designed to hide the truth.

          7. Ceasar Polar says:

            The real terrorists are the ZioNazi regime in Occupied Palestine.

          8. Ceasar Polar says:

            So now you are crying for “unarmed civilians” when children, women, and elderly in Gaza are targeted on the DAILY basis, since decades now.
            When is your distorted logic there ?
            Just change your nickname to ZioNazi-scum because that is all that transpires from it.

          9. Free man says:

            The mullahs killed 5 times more unarmed civilians in a week than the number of jihadists killed by Israel in the recent fighting in Gaza.
            You kill your civilians brutally just because they are demonstrating. The world sees exactly what you are.

          10. Ceasar Polar says:

            Israel shot pregnant women and called it a 2-for-1 they even made T-shirts out of it, which you guys love.
            Israel killed more unarmed protesters in Gaza and occupied Palestine than the whole world combined.

          11. Free man says:

            “Israel killed more unarmed protesters in Gaza and occupied Palestine than the whole world combined. ” – Do you have data or are you just farting nonsense as usual?
            When I wrote five times more, I referred to the numbers Amnesty published about the fatalities in Iran and the numbers published by the health authorities in Gaza.

          12. Ceasar Polar says:

            Im not wasting my time with ZioNazis filthy liars.

          13. Free man says:

            You’re only wasting your life, period.
            As fools usually do.

            KYS

          15. Ceasar Polar says:

            Get lost dude. Palestine will be free.
            ZioNazi-scums will be evicted by to Europe.

          16. Karen Bartlett says:

            I doubt that Syria fired any rockets at all. They have their hands full already. Why would they bother? Israel probably is lying, imo, and as mentioned, is using “Syria fired rockets” as a pretext to fire their own into Damascus now that Syria and allies are cleaning up the terrorists.

        3. Karen Bartlett says:

          Are you a member of MEK?

          1. Free man says:

            If I oppose the murder of Iranian protesters I must be MEK?

      2. <> says:

        Golan is Syrian blah blah, they lost it in a war and guess what? they are not getting it back either. More rockets shot into the Golan would just provoke more response from the IDF, not a good idea.

        1. Nosferatu says:

          Response? Its clearly Israel who shoots at Syria and pays militants in Syria, while Syria has not done anythin bad to Israel in decaddes. What response are you talking about??????

          1. <> says:

            They hide Iranian militias like Lebanese government is doing in Lebanon and giving them shelter in their military bases. That is unacceptable, either they kick them out or we will do it.

          2. Nosferatu says:

            Syrians have right to invite whoever they want into their country. Unless they attack Israel, which the did not, its none of your bussiness. And gues what, there was no Iranian presence in Syria before Israel strated paying jihadi idiots to destroy Syria. So you are actualy geting results fo your own stupid policy. And its going to get worse. I would not count on existence of Israel in 2025 if i was you.

          3. <> says:

            and we have every right to bomb whoever endangers our borders and civilians. Fair?

          4. Nosferatu says:

            Iran or Syria did not endanger Israel or its citizens.

          5. <> says:

            I don’t get it, are you trolling me or are you serious? I’m confused here.

          6. Nosferatu says:

            Syria or Iran did not attack Israel in decades. Actually Iran did not attack anyone since 1798.

          7. <> says:

            Not directly, they use proxies.

          8. Monte George says:

            No, Israel uses proxies. Isis, Al Nusra, Al Sham, etc. Israel pays them. Provides weapons, supplies, medevac services, squad leaders (IDF have been captured wearing their dog tags in the field leading terrorist sqauds in Syria & Iraq, and their service numbers published).

            Here’s an ancient riddle for you: What purpose does it serve to lie, when everyone knows you are lying?

          9. <> says:

            I’m not lying, the IDF doesn’t need proxies we can handle them all on our own. Iraninas pay money to their terrorists to keep the peace away, go read how much help Hamas and Islamic Jihad got from Iran in order to counter the PLO.

          10. Monte George says:

            IDF failed disastrously to handle the second-string hesbollah militia during the invasion of Lebanon in 2006. This in spite of massive material and diplomatic support from the USA, and the emergency callup of all available reserves. Israel cannot win in combat against any well-prepared adversary, even with US support.

            They need proxies. That is why they spend so much time and treasure to mount their propaganda and lobbying campaigns trying to goad the USA/NATO to attack Israel’s perceived enemies (Iraq, Iran, Syria, Libya). The pitiful IDF is even unable to defeat the imprisoned, isolated population of Gaza.

            Israel has made enemies of almost all of it’s neighbors, and has alienated most of the people (if not yet the leadership) of planet Earth. “Jew” is once again becoming a dirty word throughout the world – even in the USA. Can’t you feel this happening? The clock is ticking. Their may yet be time to change your ways before all patience is lost and the ghastly final blow falls against your ancient, fabled tribe; consigning the nation of Israel to the realms of History, legend, myth and lost dreams.

          11. <> says:

            We don’t back down to terror, not from Hezbollah and not from Hamas. The 2006 war was a small operation, IDF used only 5% of its firepower and look what happened to them. We don’t need anyone else to do the job for us, we will prove it soon enough.

          12. Monte George says:

            IDF used everything (non-nuclear) it had, appealed to Washington for emergency resupply and sent the reserves into combat. And they got creamed by Hesbollah’s second string. The real world is calling you; answer the phone.

          13. <> says:

            If you think we used everything we had, you’re so mistaken lol. 10K soldiers entered, do you even know how big our army is? look at their casualties number. Our war is not against Lebanon it is against Hezbo, but if they drag them down it will be an all out war. If they want peace they need to dissolve Hezbo, or bare the consequences of a future war.

          14. Monte George says:

            All out war means the end of Israel, and a clear path for the rest of us to a peaceful world. Bring it on.

          15. <> says:

            would be happy to, expect us.

          16. Ceasar Polar says:

            You have no place on this place.
            Just go back to twitter, with your zioNazis friends.

          17. Ceasar Polar says:

            Liar they were at least 50K including navy, and armed forces. IsraHell tried to occupy Lebanon once again, and it was gloriously defeated thanks to Hezbollah (and of course Russian weapons KORNETS, gotta love them ATGM’s).
            Right now they are more surprises for zioNazis scums of the earth.

          18. Monte George says:

            You don’t back down to terror? You are the terror. Hesbollah and Hamas will not back down from you.

          19. Ceasar Polar says:

            The IOF and the Mossad are the real terrorists.
            Hezbollah alone will annihilate isrHell next time anyone of your diapers military try to cross the border north.
            Palestine will be free.

          20. Concrete Mike says:

            So if iran uses proxies as you claim, why dont you use proxies too?

            Iran and syria do not threaten israeli citizens, on the other hand Israel is threat to citizens in Syria, Iraq and Lebanon.

            No way Israel will ever attack Iran, you dont have a deathwish. You just like to stir shit up.

          21. Dawn says:

            Syria and Iran have also every right to bomb whoever endangers theirs borders and civilians! Which Israel is doing on daily basis! Retarded troll!

          22. Monte George says:

            No, not Fair. Israel has no borders.

          23. Ceasar Polar says:

            Thus it is not a country. A total illegal entity in the ME.
            A Western OUTPOST trying to grow like a cancer in the ME.

          24. Ceasar Polar says:

            war criminals, children killers, pregnant women killers, hell is real.
            On earth you will live in constant 24/7 fear for what the ZioNazis did, until the end of times if necessary.
            Never a zionazi scum will be in peace in Occupied Palestines, until it s liberated from the occupiers.

          25. Ceasar Polar says:

            Filthy liar.
            It is called RESISTANCE.
            Palestine will be free.
            The occupiers are coming back to EUROPE where they came from

        2. Ceasar Polar says:

          Israel have no legal existence, it s called Occupied Palestine.
          Let alone the GOLAN. Lol
          You are pathetic ZioNazi reminding everyone how Nazis used to react to resistance.
          Land thieves, the IoF are the real terrorists. Just asking kids in Gaza, will tell you that.

    2. Ali Alsaaidi says:

      That’s a good theory buy then again syria air defense cant protect iranian forces from a large israeli air attack, Iran knows that

      1. Free man says:

        Calculated risk by the Iranians.

        1. Ali Alsaaidi says:

          I say its a stupid move and why only 4 rockets if you say you hate israel ?

          1. Free man says:

            The Iranians are experts in walking on edge.
            The purpose of the four missiles is to divert attention not to start a war.

          2. Ali Alsaaidi says:

            Yes but one day their luck wil ran out what if israels decides to hit back with 10 F16 ?

          3. Free man says:

            Good point.

          4. Monte George says:

            Take one down and pass it around … 9 F16s on the wall! Recursively subtract one and repeat until you reach zero.

          5. Free man says:

            Your prediction happened.
            Israel did send its F-16.

          6. 1691 says:

            Oh dear, you are so confused. You must be a jew.

      1. Free man says:

        pussy Mike at it again.
        Can’t you put together one logical sentence?
        You’re embarrassing.

        1. Concrete Mike says:

          Why would i bother constructing a proper sentence for a biased peice of shit like you.

          You cant even put a logical argument together, all you do is cheaply blame iran and call for regime change.

          You are a peice of shit human being.

          1. Free man says:

            You are an angry and hateful old man just like your favorite mullah regime.

    4. gustavo says:

      My friend, the leaders of protesters are paid by CIA-Mosad-M16 groups, the other are just sheep.

      1. Free man says:

        The protests began spontaneously in hundreds of Iranian cities because Iranians have legitimate grievances.
        If the enemies of Iran are exploiting the situation then the mullahs regime can only blame itself for that.

  3. John says:

    I don’t give this much weight. It sounds like almost nothing.

    1. <> says:

      Islamic Jihad also thought it’s ok to shoot rockets, we destroyed all of their 5 years plans in just 2 days and they begged Egypt to convince Israel to stop. Now they don’t even dare to bark on the media, they got their lesson from us. I don’t suggest anyone to test the IDF and shoot rockers over here, a new man is about to enter the PM office.

      1. John says:

        I doubt it.

      3. Nassim7 says:

        Israel never responds to “begging”. It is against their religion – Zionism.

        OTOH, the Israelis did beg the Hezbollah to let them withdraw from Lebanon in 2006. :-)

        1. <> says:

          Not true, Hezbollah asked the Lebanese govt to cry to the UN to stop the Israeli offensive, we were ready to go all the way to Beirut. That is how UNIFIL was created in southern Lebanon, but they are a weak force that can not handle Hezbollah. Don’t worry, we are coming for them sooner or later with all their rockets, no one is scared of them and for every rocket they shoot we wll wipe out a village this time.

          1. Karen Bartlett says:

            Typical cowardly Israeli response: “we will wipe out a village” of unarmed civilians.

          2. <> says:

            They are very armed, how do you call those rockets they store in the villages? I call them terrorists. Ask the Russians how they solved the Chechen issue, Grozny was a good example.

          9. Karen Bartlett says:

            As you well know, Hezbollah and the Palestinians are engaged in defense of their homes, their homeland and civilian lives. Israel is the aggressor in the ME and illegal occupier in Palestine. Israelis are the terrorists and always were.

    Light them up IAF, Iranian beetches.

  5. Derek Johnson says:

    Just a reminder, don’t feed the Zionist troll <>

    He wants you to react just like the SDF provocateurs throwing Molotov cocktails. Do as the military Police have done and show great restraint, just ignore him.
    Hes fuming that Russia saved Syria and his Oded Yinon plan has failed.

    When no one engages him he will f*ck off back to Brooklyn.

    1. Trauma2000 says:

      But Golan Heights still needs to be liberated – and Palestine still needs to be freed. I do note that IsraHell is building some lovely homes on the West Bank for future Palestinian returnees. Its nice that they take such care building homes for Palestinians … otherwise those building will just have to be demolished.

  6. Rodger says:

    Cui bono? What would Iran or Syria gain from firing 4 measly rockets towards the Golan? What would Israel gain by ‘intercepting’ them?

    1. Nosferatu says:

      exactly

    2. Trauma2000 says:

      It’s False Flag – IsraHell LIES – ‘By way of deception we shalt make war.’ Ring any bells. False Flag is used as PRETEXT for masking blatant aggression against innocent people.

  7. Friend of Russia says:

    The truth is explosions heard in Israel, rockets intercepted over Syria

  8. Mike says:

    Pointless and pathetic rocket attacks from Israel with no military value, it must be because of the military build up against their Al-Queda buddies in Idlib. The fact that the Israeli do the same thing shows what a paper tiger they really are.

  9. Trauma2000 says:

    ZioTrolls are thick in this thread… Guess the time zone is Tel-Aviv is conducive to Trolling right now. They get paid by the post you know. The more the troll the more money they make from the U.$. Taxpayer.

    1. Mike says:

      Even with all that American tax payer funded aid, Israel still has poverty rate of over 20% even their own media says so, https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/More-than-1-in-5-Israelis-live-in-poverty-highest-in-developed-world-475444. So this trolling must be an employment program for unemployable losers like iron zion, jacob wohl, or toronto tonto. Also that Yankee tax money must be going to lining the pockets of Bibi and his cronies.

  10. AM Hants says:

    Why is there no official writer or links for this article?

  11. gustavo says:

    Syria continues without a good air attack defense system, despite the S-300 system. Russia has total capability to stop any Israel attack to Syria land, and it looks like Russia does very very little to to stop Israel attacks.

  12. Leland Roth says:

    Israeli probably had something to do with murdering JFK, we know they were involved with 911 & counthless murderous attempts on Trump’s life & now whines about a few probably Mossad sent rockets to justify their ongoing murderous rages against Gazans….& ANYONE who stands up to their seemingly eternal bullying ways. They have dual citizens like Schiff in US Congress subverting law & order over countless lies & whatnots? What is the DIVINE answer to dealing with these foolish Zionists?

      Israel also killed Roger Rabbit.
