Most extensive Israeli attack ever on Soleimani’s military resources in Syria

Early Monday, Jan 21, the IDF struck Iranian Al Qods forces, command centers and ammo dumps in Syria for 50 minutes in volleys of guided missiles from the air and the ground. Syrian and Russian sources reported that Syrian air defenses intercepted at least 29 Israeli missiles, coming from three directions – Lebanon and two northern Israeli regions of Galilee and the Kineret (Sea of Galilee). The IDF called this its most extensive operation ever against Iranian Al Qods chief Qassem Soleimani’s forces in Syria and issued a statement warning the Syrian army not to retaliate against Israeli territory, citizens or military forces. The Mt Hermon area and ski sites were placed off-limits to civilians as of Monday. Before midnight, a series of explosions were heard across Damascus.

DEBKAfile’s military sources add: The earlier attack by four Israeli Air Force fighter jets on a target south of Damascus international airport during the day on Sunday was clearly the signal for a broader Israeli clash with Russia and Syria over the continued IDF offensive for evicting the Iranian military presence from Syria.
The Israeli military had five incentives to go forward:

  1. This first IAF air raid failed to connect to target.
  2. Syrian aid defense responses to the Israeli raid were closely synchronized with the Russian Khmeimim Airbase in Latakia and the Russian national air defense coordination center at Air Force HQ n Moscow.
  3. Israel’s Prime Minister and Defense Minister and newly-appointed IDF Chief of Staff were faced with a tough decision over whether to climb down on its campaign against Iran after being warned off by Russia against attacking Damascus or its airport.
  4. The IDF decided it could afford to let Lt. Gen. Aviv Kochavi’s first operation as IDF chief of staff be a flop.
  5. The Syrian ground missile fired into Israel and intercepted by its Iron Dome defense battery over northern Golan could not go unanswered, especially when it was not the first. A Syrian missile flew over central Israel on Dec. 26. The assumption at the time was that an Israeli posture of non-response would result in expanding Syrian ground missile volleys with Russian backing for every Israeli air strike over Syria.
    Therefore, Sunday night, Israel took up the challenge, threw the gauntlet down for Moscow, Tehran and Damascus, and turned its back on Moscow’s warning to stay out of Damascus’ skies. Urgent conferences are no doubt taking place in and between the three capitals on their next steps.

          Let’s be precise:

          Ten million bucks a day in welfare to kill medics and launch fake missile strikes against themselves in the Stolen Golan to conceal their LOSER air force’s failure.

    Maybe. But, the Syrians and Russians have been saying lately that they have been intercepting many, if not most, of the Israeli missiles. So, what’s the real version of events?

    If the USA is pouring billions into Israels missile defence systems over their own technology and we know the most advanced Israeli/US systems are far from a perfect shield, how come ageing Russian missiles systems are so successful? Propaganda? Hard to sell military hardware that is shown to be ineffective.

      While the air and missile intercept systems are clearly not able to stop everything, they are also not ineffective.

      There are a lot of effects on morale, politics, OPFOR planning and reactions, further weapons systems development by both sides, etc. Opinions may differ over the value of these effects but that does not mean they do not exist.

    perhaps a few leaked before and after satellite photos would clarify how effective the Russian systems are. We do know they didnt shoot down any Israeli planes and I’m sure not for a lack of want or trying.

    Israel’s continued air attacks on Syrian soil will occur one too many. When that happens I am afraid Russia will no longer hold Syria back and there will be a punishing retaliation aided and abetted by the Russians. Then what? Will the USA not back Israel for fear of igniting a major confrontation between the US and the Russians? The world does not want to see a major confrontation that could easily go nuclear because Israel continues to attack Syria without any provocation by the Syrian government.

    Israel has no need for a war. They are interested in peace. They have been begging for peace for 70 years. Syria is a provocation and Russia and Iran have no business being there. Iran is using Syria to wage war against israel. So it would seem that israel is actually defending itself and preventing an all out war that is inevitable if it doesnt keep Syria and the mulas in check

    Think about gog and magog

    • Jan 21, 2019 @ 19:52 at 19:52
      Permalink

      The prince of magog is a rebel angel, like the prince of persia in Daniel 10, not a human. It is brought down from space, not an area of earth. The seizing of gog in the north parts of space and the throwing down of the dragon are the SAME event, Ezekiel 38:4, 39:2 = Rev 12:7-12 = Rev 8:6-12. The Hebrew to English and Greek to English translations are poor, you need to do your due diligence when studying the Scripture.

      The 10 horns of Daniel 7 are the same 10 horns of Revelation 12:3, 13:1, and 17:12. They are 10 rebel angels who are princes over the nations of Ezekiel 38:

      10 horns/Daniel 7:7 = 10 rebel angels = 10 princes/Ezekiel 38:2-6 = the 10 horns of the dragon/Rev 13:1
      1. prince of magog
      2. prince of rosh
      3. prince of meshech
      4. prince of tubal
      5. prince of persia
      6. prince of put
      7. prince of ethiopia
      8. prince of gomer
      9. prince of beth-togarmah
      10. prince of eygpt (Daniel 11:42)

      The rebel angels have dominion over these areas of the world, and influence them to surround Judea prior to the final 7 consummation of judgment upon the fallen angels who get released from the aybss/prison in the near future. The final 7 year consummation of judgment will be the 71st week of Daniel 9. The 70 weeks are for the anointed, and at the end of the 70, the anointed are removed. Then the prince who is to come will make a covenant of the strong over the many. When the rebel angels get thrown down, and the fallen angels are released, they make an alliance, and this is the covenant of Daniel 9:27. It is NOT a peace covenant, it is an alliance of the strong (wicked angels) to rule over the many (humans).

        JP, speak not boldly about things beyond your understanding, being led to slaughter like beasts, as Peter warned. The prophets have said “Gather together ye nations, gather unto The Valley of Decision ”, is what The Most High EL proclaims through them. Yet here you are, saying its demons influencing this gathering. Do the prophets lie? Never. God rules ALL. Hence, in Job 2, altough we read Satan was the one who harmed Job,God tells Satan ”although you convinced ME to harm him without cause”. This shows that ultimately, when dealing with Gods people, Satan can do nothing without Gods express authorization. Again, the word proclaims it is God who plants and uproots nations, not fallen angels. It is imperative that we speak accurately about such things, lest we give them cause to accuse us before The Sovereign One, and thus incur punishment for our carelesness.

    The many who are now happy at the fact that little Israel stands up the the insane Goliath, how happy will they be when lets say that in Adar B, a general war unfolds with the opposition having hundreds of thousand of rockets. Even in Aza they are easily able to fire 500 in a day, and how many thousands in Lebanon, and the others? One of the few who doesn’t lie is Nasrallah, he has said various times that he has one rocket for every house in Israel ….. Perhaps there is no choice, physically, but that is not the whole story …..

        Per the writings, the Pharisees said unto Pilate, ”let his blood be upon our heads, and the heads of our descendants”, when referring to THEIR request for Rome to crucify him. In our courts of law, both parties are equally guilty. What say you on how Eloim’s court shall rule on this matter? Given mens courts are a mirror of the heavenly, shall EL ELYON be impartial in his judgment? NEVER
