Sources: Al Qaeda Bombed Hezbollah and Framed Israel

Monday, April 27th, 2015

Israeli media have quoted “reliable sources.” probably Israeli officials, that Al Qaeda-linked rebels and not the Israel Air Force bombed Hezbollah targets early this morning.

Several Hezbollah fighters in Syria were killed in the attack near the Lebanese border, according to the Qatari-based Al-Jazeera, which said the IAF was behind the attack.

A Syrian army base, where long-range missiles are kept, reportedly was bombed.

The Israeli sources said that the Al Nusra front, affiliated with Al Qaeda, was behind Monday morning’s attack and took advantage of Israel’s killing four Hezbollah terrorists last night as they were planting a bomb along the border with Israel at the Golan Heights. A Hareidi unit spotted the terrorists.

Arab media quickly picked up the thread Monday morning, connected the dots and concluded that the bombing was a continuation of Israel’s reported strikes on Friday and last Wednesday  deep inside Syria.

Sources said Al Nusra is trying to force Hezbollah back into Lebanon. Hezbollah is fighting with forces loyal to the Assad regime and against rebels and a host of terrorist organizations that include Al Nusra. The elephant on the war front is the Islamic State (ISIS), which controls a large part of the war-torn country.

Israel consistently does not confirm or deny reports of strikes in Lebanon, Syria and other terror-based countries. The possibility remains that the Israeli Air Force indeed bombed Hezbollah again but wants to avoid appearing too offensive in the eyes of Iran and Russia, which has agreed to ship to Iran the advanced S-300 anti-missile system.


Reports: IAF Strikes Syrian/Hezbollah Targets Overnight

Monday, April 27th, 2015

Please see this article for an update on who bombed the sites.

Arab sources are reporting that the Israeli Air Force struck Assad’s and Hezbollah positions in Qalamoun, Syria around 2 AM Monday morning.

The Arab sources claim that Israel hit a Scud missile storage site and injured a number of soldiers from the 155 Syrian division in three sorties. Al-Arabiya claims that 30 Syrian soldiers were killed. There is no official response from Syria or Hezbollah.

The attack came hours after Israel killed four Syrians who were planting a bomb on the Golan Heights along the Israeli side of the Israel-Syrian border.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights claims the four planting the bomb on Sunday evening were Syrian soldiers.

Israel has launched a number of airstrikes in Syria lately, as Syria, though primarily Hezbollah and Iran, attempt to use the chaos and civil war in Syria to establish a new front against Israel on top of the Golan Heights. This would be the third Israeli IAF attack in two days.

In part, Israel is sending a message to Russia and Iran that they will destroy any missile systems, and in particular, the S300 missile system, that are transferred into Syria or Lebanon.

Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon said on Sunday night that Iran is trying to transfer sophisticated weapon systems to Hezbollah, and Israel will not let that happen, anywhere or anytime. He said Hezbollah is trying to establish a terror infrastructure along Israel’s border with Syria.

On Israel’s Independence Day, one of the Free Syrian Army groups sent a letter to Israel wishing Israel a happy Independence Day. The letter stated they look forward to peace with Israel and the opening of the Israeli Embassy in Damascus.

67th Independence Day: Snow on Hermon, Rain on BBQs and IAF Flyover

Thursday, April 23rd, 2015

Snow fell on Yom Ha’Atzmaut on the Hermon for the first time in 32 years Thursday, and rain from the Northern Negev to the Galilee doused thousands of barbecues.

The unusual weather did not stop the Israel Air Force from carrying out its annual aerial flights over the entire country, from Eilat in the south to the northern border.

Approximately 140,000 visited national parks, holding on their hats on their way.

Gale force winds howled in the Galilee and in higher elevations in the Hebron Hills. During the day, heavy rain fell on several areas, including Gush Etzion and as far south as Kiryat Gat, 27 miles north of Be’er Sheva.

The annual air show featured old Beechcraft prop planes and modern F-15 jets.

Iran Tells Its Citizens Israel IDF Joined Saudis to Bomb Yemen

Tuesday, March 31st, 2015

One of the Iranian regime’s mouthpieces reported has reported that the Israeli Air Force joined Saudi warplanes to bomb Yemen this week.

The article by the Fars [read: Farce”] News Agency was so ridiculous that even the less responsible news sites did not repeat the propaganda.

On the other hand, considering Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s statement earlier this week that “we see eye to eye with many of our Arab neighbors regarding the danger posed by Iran and we also view positively the benefit that this new partnership could have for the region,” perhaps the Fars report is a harbinger of the future.

Accord to Fars:

‘This is… the first time that the Zionists are conducting a joint operation in coalition with Arabs,’ Secretary General of Yemen’s Al-Haq Political Party Hassan Zayd wrote on his Facebook page.

He noted that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had issued direct orders for the Israeli air force to send fighter jets to the Saudi-led air raid on Yemen.

Several reports the past three years have indicated that Saudi Arabia is willing to allow Israel to use its air space to attack Iran.

UN Confirmed No Patients in Terror-Hospital that IAF Bombed [video]

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

The UN confirmed to the IDF Wednesday that the Al Wafa hospital used by Hamas as a base for terror and bombed by the Israeli Air Force Wednesday had been evacuated of patients before the Israeli Air Force bombed it, as reported by The Jewish Press here earlier today.

“The Al-Wafa hospital housed a Hamas command and control center and was utilized to direct and supervise the ongoing battles in the area. Among the hospital grounds, there was a lookout post, used to gather intelligence and monitor IDF forces activities in order to carry out attacks, and there were several access shafts to​ ​the Hamas tunnel network from within the hospital,” IDF spokesmen said.

The hospital was evacuated from patients and staff and continued to be occupied by Hamas gunmen who continued to fire at the IDF forces.

“The head of the Israeli Coordination and Liaison Administration with Gaza confirmed with the head of the WHO (World Health Organization) in Gaza that he has informed the hospital manager three times, that the premises should be vacated,” the IDF statement said. “The head of the WHO stated that the hospital manager declared there were no patients or staff in the hospital, and that the building is empty. This was confirmed by the Gaza CLA” on Wednesday.

The footage below shows secondary explosions, indicating an extensive amount of weaponry was stored.

Hamas told foreign media that civilians were killed in the bombing raid.
