US Provided Intelligence For Recent Israeli Strikes On Syria’s Deir Ezzor

Israel US joint air force war games

The recent Israeli strikes on the eastern Syrian governorate of Deir Ezzor were carried out with intelligence provided by the US, the Associated Press, AP, reported on January 13.

A US intelligence official with knowledge on the matter told the agency that the strikes targeted a series of warehouses in Deir Ezzor that were being used in a “pipeline” to store and stage Iranian weapons and components for the country’s Islamic nuclear program.

The strikes wiped out a number of military positions located between Deir Ezzor city and the town of al-Bukamal on the border with Iraq.

“US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo discussed Tuesday’s airstrike with Yossi Cohen, chief of Israel’s spy agency Mossad, at a public meeting in the popular Washington restaurant Café Milano on Monday,” the unnamed official told the AP.

The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 57 fighters were killed in the Israeli strikes. However, the al-Mayadeen TV, which is close to Damascus, reported that a Syrian service member was killed and at least 14 others were injured.

The US involvement in the strikes, which were the largest attack by Israel on Syria since the beginning of this year, is a clear message to Iran. Washington has been backing Israel’s undeclared war on Iranian forces in Syria since the very beginning. This support will apparently go on after the departure of the current administration.

Iran thank Russia for the intel…they know 2 hours before the Israeli intentions beside some missile close to Deir ezzor have been shot down by Russian Pantsir deployed there!


Laughable … minutes before the operation … is the ONLY warning

There have been ‘no accidents’ with Russian troops … so far

Israel has complete control over the playground err Syria

The IRGC are losing badly … but cannot admit defeat …

“The IRGC are losing badly”…7 years IDF tell the same and IRGC&Hezbollah continue growing its presence in Syria!…sorry but almost all missile have benn shot down and Israel caused less damage than a single ISIS offensive usual in Homs desert!


Who are you kidding? 57 dead and 15 targets destroyed. Stop with your usuall BS that the rockets are all intercepted, we hit our targets everytime we attack successfully.

Yeah Israeli& pro oposition propagande work well….but sadly for you Israel are unable to expel Iranians or Hezbollah from Syria…they only waste expensive missile and propagande told fakes success!

Despite mounting deaths among SAA and IRGC ranks. Why aren’t they getting dislodged?

Something doesn’t match-up.

Azeri punitive assault on Armenian position in NK last september was a pivotal point in dislodging Armenians completely.

With similar air assaults targeting high value targets in Syria proper, yet things doesn’t add up.


We can not do it all from the air, that is why I keep saying here we need to start a ground operation and clean the other side of the Golan. The SAA has failed in doing so, Turkey did the same in Syria when it hurt their interests. The warnings we give to the SAA commanders are falling on deaf ears, it’s time to roll the tanks.

Lets be honest, IDF helped Al Nusra and few terror group off-shoot during the hay days of rebel onslaughts. Russia, SAA and IRGC won’t let that happen. More bloods get spilled on land than on air. Accumulating personnel near Golan heights for an invasion is something israel can’t afford in next 2 years.

See, Air operations are zero risk medium return type of maneuvers IDF can indulge in for now.

Perhaps israel might roll tanks after 5 years. Meanwhile, by the time tanks keeps rolling, IDF won’t have any local sympathizers or groups to support or collaborate with.

Assad might soon reach an under the table deal with israel to maintain security in Golan Heights. That might happen sooner than expected.

Bravado aside, that deal makes more sense for Assad and Netanyahu than nothing.


“Assad might soon reach an under the table deal with israel to maintain security in Golan Heights. That might happen sooner than expected.”

Would be for the best, but it’s up to him.


Sorry? I feel sorry for you … you have no idea how much suffering the IRGC has caused Iraq / Syria / Lebanon / Yemen …

THEIR HATRED for the Shia is palpable … it’s epic


I wish I could lose this badly..


Explain the outcome then.

combine amerikan intelligence (oxymoron ) with Israeli pilot and result is successful attack on scorpion in desert


Last time I heard of an Israeli pilot, a Russian military plane was shot down by an S-200. Memorable!

Well…Zion State is the 51st state of America, how much US pay them? billions each year for 8 million ppl.
How much aid Zion get from other EU countries such as Nazi Germany that is supporting Zion which is really just Nazi under different skin and name now.
Which country suck Zion cuck in UN 24/7….yeah remove US and you see poor shit hole call Zion State and they would run the fuk out to EU.
Even now if those fuking Wahhabi Sunnis had any shame or balls and they boycott Israel – you would see how weak they are…Palestine is small and without US and EU money Zion wouldn’t lasted few years.

Remember those who cry foul…Wahhabi State (KSA) – Turkey – UAE – Egypt <- they cry out loud in UN each year but the same-time they have gay sex with Zion more and more each year.

Iran – Iraq – Syria – Algeria are the only hope for Palestinians.


You keep looking for excuses …

•??? ?
• the UN?

Laughable conclusion … as an outsider …

Explain … why the f/k are YOU ‘hot and bothered’ by Israel’s success?


oh wow I am shocked.. Usually US only provides intelligence and sat maps and logistics to ISIS…

Albert Pike

Israel – ISIS same thing.
