Syria Denying Israeli Attack on Rockets Stash

Iranian TV reported that official sources in Syria are denying the CNN report from Friday, that the IAF last weekend bombed Latakia harbor in Syria.

Friday’s CNN report cited three unnamed U.S. officials who said that the blasts that took place at the critical Syrian port of Latakia were the result of airstrikes by Israeli fighter jets. According to CNN, the airstrikes targeted Russian-made Yakhont anti-ship missiles.

In a statement released the previous Friday, the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights—a pro-rebel group—said that “huge explosions shook the area where a large Syrian army base and weapons depots are located.”

According to reports that reached the rights group, fighter jets were seen in the skies in the area of the city of Al-Haffah, east of Latakia. It was further reported that several troops have been killed and wounded in the explosions. Fires broke out in the region.

This is the fourth reported Israeli strike in Syria in six months.

  1. In one night from evening to dawn, Damascus will be removed from being a city by God. Most people don’t know that Damascus Syria has historically remained inhabited from the time of it’s founding until today. Despite military losses it has always been populated. YET ISAIAH 17 SAYS THAT GOD WILL TAKE IT AWAY FROM BEING A CITY. That’s a permanent statement by God, not a temporary one! That has not happened as of yet. What could cause that? God could do this any way that he wished to. One possibility is if Syria attacks Israel with WMD’s the only way to stop it soon enough to save the nation would likely be a nuclear strike on Damascus and possibly other targets as well. If God chooses to use mans weapons of mass destruction as one of the tools to bring that about then today’s news concerning Assad should get you interested enough to take a longer look at Isaiah 17. I’m not saying it is “without question”, but without question it looks like it is VERY LIKELY. In addition Iran continues determined in it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Yet here we are with the clock ticking. In July of 2012 I wrote a small book that lists some of what the Bible says will happen in the end times as well as what will happen during the period known as the seven (360 day) year tribulation and other soon to take place events. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s about 6 or 7 pages, so it’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.

    Shame on Obama and his flunkies. Publicly pointing the finger at our trusted ally, Israel, endangers them. Obama knows that the Assad regime and their arms supplier, Putin's Russia, have threatened to attack Israel. By blaming Israel, even when the Syrian dictatorship wasn't, Obama is encouraging Russia, and their client Syria, to attack Israel. They have the ability to kill many Israelis and cause wide spread destruction. You, Mr Obama, are an evil monster.

  4. You're assuming Obambi is smart enough to figure that out… I'm betting on stupidity as opposed to malice…

  5. As always, it’s better sending a clear signal than a muddy one. Back in 1937, the Taliban of Europe, the Nazis, had their strength in their chaps. Their weaponry were still limited, and both France and Britain could have finished them off without problems.
    Like today, the present day Nazis, the Mullahs of Tehran have their strength in their chaps. The Syrians do the job by themselves, but Israel and/or the United States has to eliminate the nuclear facilities in Iran, and, preferable, finish off the fascist clerisy.
