Skip to comments.Israel Furious with White House for leak on Syrian strike

Israel is fuming with the White House for confirming that it was the Israeli Air Force that struck a military base near the Syrian port city of Latakia on Wednesday, hitting weaponry that was set to be transferred to Hezbollah.
Israel has not acknowledged carrying out the strike, one of half a dozen such attacks widely ascribed to Israel in recent months, but an Obama administration official told CNN on Thursday that Israeli warplanes had indeed attacked the Syrian base, and that the target was missiles and related equipment set for delivery to Hezbollah in Lebanon.
Israels Channel 10 TV on Friday night quoted Israeli officials branding the American leak as scandalous. For Israels ally to be acting in this way was unthinkable, the officials were quoted as saying.
A second TV report, on Israels Channel 2, said the leak came directly from the White House, and noted that this is not the first time that the administration has compromised Israel by leaking information on such Israeli Air Force raids on Syrian targets.
Was Biden the usual blabbermouth?
Obama and America have now lost
the trust of EVERY country in the world.
We have satellites and NSA etc to gather the intel. Debka says Israel was ready to attack Iran a few times but Obama-Tron leaks prevented this
I agree, and the list of nations upset with this amateur in the White House is growing ever longer. Certainly we can include Germany, France, Saudi Arabia, and Israel to name just a few.
“This administration is despicable”
Amazing how they don’t know a damn thing going on in their own administration or obamacare, but they know Israel carried out a strike and announce it to the world.
They are beyond despicable.
Before he’s finished he’s going to get a whole lot of people killed.
You got our permission.
This is perfectly understandable when you recognize Obama’s objective: to destroy America’s in the world. Therefore, he emboldens our enemies through weakness and alienates our allies by deception and betrayal.
“Amateur”? Do you really think that this “leak” was accidental? Under Obama we have stabbed Israel in the back too many times for this to be due to incompetence.
Biden thinks that all Israel needs is a double barreled shotgun to fire in the air.
No. This was done at our boy king’s behest. But he lies like a rug so why even bother asking him. He’s also an enemy islamist.
These leaks are a deliberate effort to hobble Israel’s efforts to counter the Iran threat. They are direct Jarrett/Obama policy and Israel better get a clue about the nature of this US administration.
The next president is going to have his hands full just trying to repair our relations with our ‘allies’.
ALLIES in quotations due to the fact that by the time we get rid of Bronchobama, we may have none.
I hope every Jewish American voter reads this.
I doubt most of them care.
The first mistake was that they still think we are allies.
“the target was missiles and related equipment set for delivery to Hezbollah”
Source of the shipment = ?
Not so sure there will be another president:^(
