Western sources: Israel Air Force hits SS-21 batteries, first attack in Syrian war on nuclear-capable missiles

Western military and intelligence sources report that Israeli Air Force strikes in Lebanon and Syria overnight Monday, Feb. 24
came on the heels of the first use in the three-year Syrian war of a Russian-made
nuclear-capable Tochka (Point) surface missile - NATO-coded SS-21 Scarab -
which carries a 480-kilo warhead with a range of 70 km.
These missiles were fired earlier Monday in the Syrian-Hizballah battle for Yabroud.
There was no information about the effect of the Israeli strikes.

Father, give victory to your people, though they be rebellious and stiffnecked ... We pray for their victory ... or the return of your Son, Jesus.

Give US eyes to see and wisdom

In Jesus name, Amen

I do hope Israel is not destroying Syrian ordinance that is used to hammer the muzzy rebels. Israel should wait until Syria has eliminated or seriously reduced the jihadi threat.

I am sure they notified our clown king of their intentions to do so. Oh wait, it would have been during his bed time so I guess not.

DEBKA. Could be true or could be BS. Haven’t heard any other reports of this yet.

DEBKA did report on the Israeli attack on that Syrian reactor way before anyone else did.

How come the US isn’t helping Israel in this important operation? Never mind! Anti Israel BHO is president.

Why oh why are we stuck with BHO until 2017? The operation would happen in a big way if we had a real patriot as president, TED CRUZ!
