Israeli air strikes knock over dozens of Iranian Guards and Syrian army targets

Israel fighter jets early Wednesday, Nov. 20 smashed dozens of Iranian Revolutionary Guards and Syrian military targets in Syria – payback for the four-rocket volley against the Golan. They included ground-to-air missile batteries, command centers, weapons stores and bases. The IDF reported that Syrian anti-air batteries were destroyed after opening fire on the Israeli jets, although a warning was relayed to Damascus to abstain. Syrian military sources describe the Israeli fighters as shooting missiles from airspace over the Golan and Lebanon.

At the end of the attack, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu issued a brief statement: “I have said clearly that if anyone harms us, we will harm them. That is what we did tonight to the Iranian Al Qods Brigades and Syrian military targets, after rockets were aimed from Syria against Israel. We shall continue to vigorously safeguard Israel’s security.”

DEBKAfile’s military sources: Israel and Iran have recently embarked on an extraordinary duel, conducted between Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Aviv Kochavi for the IDF and and the Al Qods Brigades chief Gen. Qassem Soleimani for Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.     

The Iranian general is determined to draw Israel into a drawn-out war of attrition on multiple fronts, Syria, Lebanon and the Gaza Strip, whereas the Israeli general’s tactics center on cutting short a potentially slow, debilitating conflict by sharp strikes against Iranian targets and those of its allies. Iran never knows when these surprise attacks are coming or where. Last week, Iran challenged Israel from the Gaza Strip with 450 Palestinian Islamic Jihad rockets. This week, the site of the duel moved to Syria.

    Well, as expected.

    The real question is, how iran will respond. Will they organise a missile strike from iraq and jemen, and what will they target. And will israel twarth that attack….

    In depth, there are some hard decisions to make for israel.

    Whatever the government decides, that multiple front war will come, sooner or later. Does israel wants to fight it under a president trump, or keep avoiding it, till there is no other choice, and fight it under a hostile white house and international community.

          For he said to them, “This is the rest; give rest to the weary, and this is the tranquility,” but they would not listen.
          10Who said to the seers, “You shall not see,” and to the prophets, “You shall not prophesy for us true things. Speak to us with smooth talk; prophesy mockery.
          smooth talk: Flattery.
          prophesy: (חֲזוּ, lit., envision) prophesy.
          11Turn away from the road, turn away from the path, cease from before us the Holy One of Israel.”
          turn away: (Turn) us (away).
          from the path: We want the false prophecy.
          12Therefore, so said the Holy One of Israel, “Because you have despised this matter, and you have put your trust in oppression and a perverse one, and you have relied upon it.
          this matter: the true prophecy.
          and a perverse one: a disgraceful one and a mocker.
          13Therefore, this iniquity shall be to you as a breach of a falling [wall], revealed in a fortified wall, whose breach will come suddenly.”
          as a breach: of a fallen wall.
          revealed in a fortified wall: Revealed to enter thereby the walls of your fortification. נִבְעֶה is an expression of revealing, as in Obadiah (1: 6): “His hidden things were revealed (נִבְעוּ).” Dunash, however, interprets נִבְעֶה as a protrusion, since the wall develops blisters (אֲבַעְבּוּעוֹת) because of the rains and the deterioration of the weak mortar.
          14And He shall break it like the breaking of a potter’s jug, crushed without pity, and in its crushing shall not be found a shard, to scoop fire from a hearth, or to scoop water from a cistern.
          a potter’s jug: An earthenware jug.
          shall not be found: in the crushing of its fragments a shard large enough to scoop fire from a hearth, to pick up fire from a hearth. All scooping up of fire is referred to with an expression of חֲתִיָּה.
          or to scoop water: Or to draw. Comp. (Haggai 2:16): “To draw off (לַחְשׂף) fifty measures.” Also (below 47:2): “Draw off (חֶשְׂפִּי) the path.” Draw water from your path, Epuyse in O.F.
          from a cistern: (מִגֶּבֶא) A pit full of water.
          15For so said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel; “With tranquility and restfulness shall you be saved, with quietude and trust shall be your might; but you did not want.

          Hmmm, why does davefromorange suggest that Jesus the Christ won’t fulfill his promise to save the souls of those who repent for their sins and accept Jesus as their Lord and savior (followed by changing their life to live according to biblical principles)? Does davefromorange dispute the Holy Bible or perhaps have an interpretation that apparently is not accepted by followers of the Word? I am biting here, what is the answer? You and me bro, dance-off. What do you believe?

        DEBKA posts that they will not allow “incitement, libel or offensive language.” What about if somebody is trying to be offensive but isn’t? “Jim Carol” evidently is attempting to be offensive but his post is unintelligible. He is fascinated with something he calls “sharmota” (??) repeating it three times and something else he calls “motha” –does he mean to talk about “moths?– along with goats and dogs? Some posts are idiotic.This one is Bizarre.

    It matters not if the entire world attacked Israel. God said He will destroy the attackers for His glory. Not the U.S., not the international community. God is not wringing His hands in heaven but will do as He said He would as written in Ezekiel. All past prophecies have come to be truth and so will those for the future. Thanks be to God!

    I pray that Israel continues to honor G-d, and stops the tilt toward embracing gay marriage, abortion and other such abominations. G-d will continue to bless and protect Israel, but allowing such evil behavior may bring unneeded death and hardship if Israel takes itself out from under G-d`s protection. Same goes for the U.S.

    I suggest letting the Haredim stay out of the military and not drafting them. Just some thoughts from a concerned Christian American who loves Israel.

    As a U.S. citizen, first I’d like to say I’ve been appalled for decades at the way Israel has been treated by the U.S. Gov’t. The US has and is being de-stabilized, such that I don’t recognize my country I’ve lived in for 6 decades. There is another certainty, with death and taxes, and that’s the inviolate capability to bribe American politicians. I don’t know how much longer you can depend on us, good friends.

    Another flagrant violation of international law in which this parasitic state which lives to inflict pain and suffering on other people once illegally again attacks its neighbors. As this Jewish people uave shown that they have no respect for other peoples life, liberty, property or freedoms so too should we treate this people. In nature the parasite behaves much the same and while we do our best to avoid it when we encounter it we know that i needs to be destroyed for the health of the body. The same applies here, for the good of the species this parasitic pestilence needs to be contained and brought under control.

      Yes as i have said before this is a very important point and why Israel is trying to bait Iran so that Russia and China agree not to extend sanctions. Israel loves to play the victim when it is the country violating International Law and its neighbors rights. Because come next year October Iran will be able to buy whatever weapons technology it needs to integrate into its domestic weapons production. With the karma that Zionism has built up i i would not be surprised if this leads to a true holocaust, no the holohoax from WW2.

      Russia expressed its readiness to discuss the sale of S-400 air defence systems to Iran earlier this year as soon as such a request was received from the Iranian side. Tehran may be interested in purchasing a variety of advanced Russian defence hardware, including the S-400 air defence system, the K-300P Bastion coastal defence system, Su-30 fighter jets, Yak-130 trainers and T-90 main battle tanks, a new report by the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) says.

      The report, dubbed ‘Iran Military Power’, part of its ‘Military Power’ series which also includes Russia and China, speculates that the Islamic Republic may begin shopping for advanced arms abroad to modernise its military after the United Nations arms embargo against Tehran expires in October 2020, on the fifth anniversary of the adoption of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action nuclear deal.
