Four Israeli airborne missiles destroy Syrian SA-5 battery

IDF sources reported Monday that Israel’s retaliatory air raid of a Syrian SA-5 battery 50km east of Damascus which fired missiles at Israeli reconnaissance flights over Lebanon, destroyed the battery. This was the first Syrian ground-to-air missile attack on IAF planes over Lebanon. The tit-for-tat incident occurred as Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shogoi was heading to Israel for a visit to  Israel.

      It doesnt matter ISIS is not relevant anymore. I would like to see a Kurdistan nation to fight side by side with Israel against PLO and other terrorists.

        Israel still support Al-Nusra ( Al-Qaeda) terrorists who are no different to IS. The closeness of Masud Barazani with Israel will just cause more problem for Kurdish people. Kurd like Palestinian are after establishing their own country but going to bed with Israel is not going to help them and will cause more problem fore them!

          Al-Nusra is the lesser terrorist evil, Iran being the greater evil. As stated by the UN last February.

    @The Kurds acted wisely and that shows they are ready for a country. The strong will not follow the unwise in there act of foolishness. Iraqi and IRCG terrorist be warn silence isn’t an act of cowardice but strength. Israel attacked the Syrian SAM Batteries 3hrs later that is strenght so don’t celebrate victory yet. The Kurds are very ready for war but are much ready and better for a country. They don’t want to build a nation out of war. The people decided for a referendum and the got what the wanted. Support the dream of the Kurds people make peace before its too late.
