I just went to the Israel National News web site and they reported that there was a vehicle damaged but it was not destroyed and that no one was injured. They also reported that the IDF response had a direct hit on the location from where the attack originated in the Golan Heights.

No pictures then it never happened... they probably fired on the IDF and then the Israelis killed the syrians.

I am wondering if the Syrian Army was taking “credit” for an attack perpetrated by Hezbollah from the Golan?

Yesterday, the Israeli media showed an old Israeli jeep taken as booty either by Hizbollah or other forces in Lebanon after Israel left S. Lebanon in 2000. The story said that Syrian rebels had used it and the Syrian Army damaged it and there’s a picture of it. So maybe they are trying to link shooting at an Israeli jeep with the picture of the “captured” Syrian rebel jeep that at one time belonged to the Israel Defense Forces?

I can follow the logic of your thought. However, Israel’s Defense Minister did confirm this latest military action.

Post and run much?

Breaking News?

Beware of propaganda from the other side.

The Syrian army on Monday displayed an Israeli-made Jeep it said was captured from a rebel organization during recent battles for control of Qusayr, a Syrian city near the Lebanese border. Damascus claimed the vehicle was proof of Israeli and U.S. aid to the Syrian opposition.

There has been no confirmation from the Israeli side that an armoured vehicle was destroyed. Israeli media report that a vehicle was hit by small arms fire and that they (the Israelis) returned pinpoint fire on the site that shot at them. They used a domestically produced missile to silence that Syrian point. Repeat, no sign that Israelis suffered a major hit with loss of life...this is true for the moment.

I would like for you to read my postings. The information I have provided is at the Israel National News Agencies web site. Its there where I found out no Israeli vehicle was destroyed, that no Israeli’s were injured, that the Syrian site was destroyed and that the Defense minister did comment on this newest episode.

Armored vehicle? A horse covered by a blanket?

ok, SO WE ARE IN AGREEMENT. Let us hope that the Israeli Defense Force personnel stay safe while their adversaries chew each other up (apparently literally as Syrians are taking bites out of other Syrians’ hearts and livers).
How can any sane person or country expect Israelis to make agreements with these animals? The world knows that they are actually less than animals so why all the pressure for negotiations and Israeli compromise?

Yes we are in agreement. That includes Israel only negotiating from a position of strength.

Mad Albright said, during the bloody Oslo years (1993-2003) that Israel had to “make painfull compromises for Peace”.
Israel gave away some tangible assets to Arafart and got only bloody mayhem in return so what is it actually being negotiated each time? Answer, how much can Israel give, give, give until the Arabs are satisfied and willing to MOVE ON and end the conflict? The Arabs are not yet civilized enough to make peace and improve their miserable lives so there really is nothing to negotiate as of right now. Maybe, when the Arabs grow up, stop screaming and killing, maybe then, they can sit like human beings at a negotiating table. For now, they are too busy slaughtering each other while the world looks on, crying crocodile tears...

the incident occurred in the territory of Syrian village of Beer Ajam.

Sounds like a refrigerator malfunction to me.

No arguments here, and I can appreciate the ‘in fighting’ between the different sects within Islam.

I do not know how we can reconcile ourselves with any form of Islam and I am not being an Islamophobe here. Islamic thought (for all Muslims, not just so-called “extremists” for “moderates” as well) sees the world in two possible states of existence:

1) Dahr Al Hareb

or

2) Dahr Al Islam

Dahr Al Hareb (Hareb literally means sword) is a world of flux, incongruity and upheavel because not everyone is Islamic. Infidels are everywhere preventing the ideal world state where everybody is Islamic called, as above, Dahr Al Islam. A prefect world where everyone is Muslim.

Until that glorious epoch, Islam is at war (or on the sword) with everybody else including for some %$$@@@ -up reason, at war with their various sects as well.

The world is out of balance until we all accept Allah so there is no room for that magical word unknown to most Muslims and Arabs especially...here it is...wait for it...COMPROMISE!!
I would love to hear anybody out there reading this tract to contend with my basic premise. If somebody can “correct” me, I would be happy to listen...

That is one of the more interesting posting histories I've ever seen. Been here six years; posts new stories from a variety of sources on a variety of topics but never, ever comments. Strange behavior.

sunni/shia... both sides of satan’s coin. The only thing that stops them from killing each other is killing us or the Israelis.
