Israeli Warplanes Strike Inside Syria for Fifth Time This Year
ABC News ^ | Oct. 31, 2013 | LUIS MARTINEZ and JOSH MARGOLIN

Israeli warplanes conducted an airstrike early today on a Syrian military facility near the northern Syrian port city of Latakia along the Mediterranean coast, a U.S. official confirms to ABC News.

The attack is believed to be the fifth airstrike conducted by Israel inside Syria this year. Like the earlier airstrikes, the official said the latest attack presumably targeted advanced Russian missile weapons systems headed to the extremist group Hezbollah based in Lebanon.

An Israeli source also confirmed the attack to ABC News which like the four previous attacks this year has not been acknowledged by the Israeli government.

The air strike was first reported in Israeli newspapers which cited explosions at a missile storage facility near Latakia. The accounts differed as to what types of air defense missile systems may have been targeted by Israeli warplanes.

Thanks Pan_Yan.
The attack is believed to be the fifth airstrike conducted by Israel inside Syria this year... like the four previous attacks this year has not been acknowledged by the Israeli government. The air strike was first reported in Israeli newspapers which cited explosions at a missile storage facility near Latakia. The accounts differed as to what types of air defense missile systems may have been targeted by Israeli warplanes.
Types? The Russian kind.

So the Russians are giving advanced anti-aircraft missile systems to Syria. The rebels don’t have any planes. Obama and Company aren’t going in because Putin stole their lunch money. So are the missiles strictly to protect the Assad regime from Israel or was the IDF bombing something much more important?

There’s a lot of puzzle pieces that don’t fit together.

The missiles are for Assad to give to Hizb-allah to take to Lebanon. KGB Putin is continuing the Soviet Union’s foreign policy of support for terrorist organizations. Putin hates Israel because they are America’s ally and he wants revenge for America’s Cold War defeat of the EVIL EMPIRE. Putin is a genocidal mass-murderer and terrorist.
