A Sign of Desperation: Iran Claims Syria Killed Israeli Soldiers

Sunday, August 30th, 2015

It appears that Iran soon will put the Brooklyn Bridge on sale.

The regime’s Fars News Agency, whose previous journalistic scoops include Iran’s having found a cure for cancer, has reported that Syrian war planes killed three Israeli and Jordanian officers in a supposed air raid on Al Nusra forces in Dara’a.

The need to release such a report to boost morale is a sign that the Iranian-backed regime of Bashar al-Assad is in bad shape.

The same report boasted:

In similar operations on Friday, over 100 militants of al-Nusra Front were killed in the Syrian fighter jets’ operations in Dara’a.

The sources said that, over 100 terrorists, most of them from al-Nusra Front, were killed in a series of army airstrikes that targeted their gatherings in Dael town in the countryside of the southern Dara’a city.

If the story were true, it would be a public admission that Syria broke a 48-hour ceasefire, which collapsed before its Saturday expiration date with clashes in three cities, including two that have been surrounded by an alliance of rebels and Al Nusra, linked with Al Qaeda.

The third city is on the Syrian-Lebanese border.

With nearly a quarter of million people killed and half of Syria’s population displaced in the four-year-old conflict, Iranian soldiers are fighting alongside Assad’s forces in a do-or-die attempt to keep him in power.

As for the report of Israelis being killed, there is absolutely no chance that an Israeli soldier would be killed in action without the country knowing about it.

Two Mortar Shells Explode on Golan Heights

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

Two mortar shells fired from Syria exploded in the northern Golan Heights late Monday afternoon.

No physical injuries or property damage was reported. One person suffered shock.

The IDF said that the shells exploded in an agricultural area. It estimates they were the result of stray fire in the Syrian war and were not intentionally aimed at Israel.

The Golan Heights has been hit dozens of times the past year by rifle fire and mortar shells, sometimes aimed at soldiers and civilians.

Two Mortar Shells Explode at Golan Heights Fence, UN Peacekeepers Injured

Monday, May 4th, 2015

Two rockets landed at the Golan Heights security fence along the border with Syria late Monday morning, injuring two United Nations soldiers.

The initial estimate is that the incident was not intentional and was “spillover”  from clashes between warring factions in the ongoing civil war in Syria.

Foreign media reported last week that the IDF recently has beefed up forces  and moved more tanks in the Golan Heights and at Har Dov, on the Hermon mountain and overlooking Syria and Lebanon.

The military declined to comment.

The Islamic State (ISIS) reportedly has deployed forces near the border.

In an unrelated event Monday, three IDF Reservists were injured when their vehicle overturned during a training exercise on the Golan Heights.

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.


Dramatic Video Shows Syrian Rebels Blowing up Assad Compound [video]

Monday, February 2nd, 2015

A video released by the Free Syrian Army shows the explosion in a tunnel dug underneath a large base manned by forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The attack took place last month in northwestern Syria and shows rebels deploying M-40 recoilless rifles to attack the compound after the blast.

Iran Claims Syrian Forces Seized Israeli Missiles from Rebels

Sunday, October 27th, 2013

Iran’s government-controlled Fars News Agency reported on Sunday that Syrian forces seized “Israeli-made missiles, machine guns, rifles and communication devices” in clashes with rebels in the Daraa region.

Saudi Arabia has been known to be a major supplier of weapons to opposition forces, so if the report has any validity, it raises the fanciful scenario that the oil-rich kingdom is buying weapons from Israel and then shipping them to Al Qaeda terrorists who are using Zionist guns.

Syrian Rebels Kill 17 Hezbollah Fighters in Direct Hit (Video)

Sunday, October 27th, 2013

Syrian opposition media have posted a video that shows a direct rebel strike on a Hezbollah building near Damascus, killing a large but unknown number of the terrorist organization’s fighters.

Hezbollah has been losing popularity in Lebanon following reports of hundreds of casualties since the terrorist group’s leader Hassan Nasrallah sent them to fight along soldiers loyal to Syrian President Bassar al-Assad.

Hezbollah initially claimed its fighters were in Syria to protect Shi’ite religious sites against attacks by Sunni Muslims.

In what appears to have been a separate clash in Damascus on Saturday, at least 15 Hezbollah fighters were killed, and a separate video showed dead soldiers with Hezbollah label patches on their uniforms.

Media  coverage of the destruction of Assad’s chemical weapons has neglected the ongoing civil war that could tear Syria into several warring regions.

Al Qaeda, which has become a major force in the war against the Assad regime, lost control of a major border crossing with Iraq on Saturday when Syrian Kurds captured it after a three-day battle.

In the south, rebels took over the town of Tafas after weeks of heavy  fighting that killed dozens of people, according to, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
