WEB Notes: Another day, another Israeli strike on Syria. I find it amazing that Basher Assad has held onto power as long as he has.
Israeli warplanes struck a Syrian military position in a rural area near Damascus today, triggering Syria’s air defence system which destroyed most of the missiles, a Syrian army statement carried by state television said.
Reuters reported the statement saying several missiles were launched by the Israeli jets from inside the territory of neighbouring Lebanon at 03:42am local time (01:42GMT).
“The general command of the armed forces holds Israel fully responsible for the dangerous consequences of its repeated, aggressive and uncalculated adventures,” the army statement said.
