IDF Attacks Syrian Chemical Weapons Base, Syria Threatens Israel with 然epercussions

Sep 7, 2017

Syria warned about 電angerous repercussions after the Israeli Air Force attacked a chemical weapons development site.

Israel痴 Air Force (IAF) attacked a sensitive Syrian military installation in Hama, deep inside the country, early Thursday morning

The Syrian army stated through SANA, the country痴 official news agency, that Israeli warplanes fired several rockets from Lebanon痴 airspace, targeting a Syrian military posts near Massyaf in the Hama countryside, killing two army personnel and causing material damage to the site.

典his aggression comes in a desperate attempt to raise the collapsed morale of the ISIS (Islamic State) terrorists after the sweeping victories achieved by the Syrian Arab Army against terrorism at more than one front, and it affirms the direct support provided by the Israeli entity to the ISIS and other terrorist organizations, the Army Command said in a statement.

Syria has long alleged that Israel is secretly collaborating with ISIS in its war in Syria.

Syria Condemns 践ostile Acts

Syria warned there could be 電angerous repercussions of such hostile acts on the security and stability of the region, reiterating determination to eliminate terrorism and uproot it from all the Syrian territories whatever the type of support provided to these terrorist groups is.

According Arab media, the site attacked is a Syrian center for the development and production of weapons, including long-range missiles and possibly chemical weapons.

AFP reported that Syria痴 army operated a military facility at the targeted site that included a branch of the Scientific Studies and Research Center (SSRC).

The US has accused the SSRC of developing the sarin gas used in a chemical attack on the Syrian civilians in April, which killed 83.

Rami Abdurrahman, who heads the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), said two facilities were hit, a scientific research center and a nearby military base where short-range surface-to-surface missiles are stored. He said the attack killed two people and wounded five.

溺any explosions were heard in the area after the air raid, said Abdurrahman, whose group relies on a network of activists across the country. He said some of the blasts may have been secondary explosions from a missile storage facility being hit.

He said Lebanese Hezbollah fighters and Iranian military officials often visit the site.

Israel has remained silent, as was its conduct in similar previous incidents.

First Israeli Attack on Syrian Target in Years

If confirmed, this would be the first Israeli attack on a Syrian target in years. While Israel has repeatedly attacked Hezbollah weapons shipments and convoys within Syria, it has refrained from striking at Syrian targets which were involved in the terror group痴 military buildup.

Speaking to IDF Radio, former IDF intelligence chief Amos Yadlin called the incident 殿n escalation because it targeted a 鉄yrian center for the development and production of accurate missiles.

Speaking last month, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman stated that Israel will not stand by while Iran advances in Syria and establishes itself militarily on Israel痴 northern border

Syria is an artificial ad hoc nation in the midst of a civil war. They should have thought of all that before they started getting ideas above their station.
The wisdom of the ancients has been taught by the philosophers of Greece, but also by people called Jews in Syria, and by Brahmins in India
-Megasthenes, Greek Ambassador to India, 300 BC

Why is it that on June 4th 1967 I was a Jordanian and overnight I became a Palestinian? - Walid Shoebat, PLO terrorist
