Do they have two new F35s?
If the Russians didn’t fire on the planes it means the Israelis cleared the attack with them ahead of time as has happened a few times before.
I love the IAF.
Definitely sounds like F-35s. If they were not picked up..
Israel usually has a good reason to do what they have to. Notice Assad never strikes back.
Just saw this.

This could be a ‘false flag’ attack aimed at setting up Israel. Why would they do this 1 WEEK before 0dungsh*t leaves office?
This today from Col. W. Patrick Lang (USA, ret.), former top Middle East analyst at the DIA and former instructor at West Point:
Out in the eastern desert the SAA and friends are pushing IS back from around Tiyas air base. NW of Damascus the water supply is going to be turned back on soon as the springs are liberated from the jihadis. The SAA are making noises about an offensive toward Quneitra. I don't understand why. The IS jihadis there have full Israeli support and the population is much reduced because of the nearby Israeli threat and their long ago destruction of the city of Quneitra.
TTG and I remain committed to the thought that the main threat to the long term viability of the Syrian Government is continued jihadi possession of and now consolidation in Idlib Province. We can only hope that the R+6 alliance is waiting for a visible result from the coming Astana negotiation before deciding on a decisive campaign. pl
There's an agreement; but we don't need to see the proof I suppose.
As Max Blumenthal, a Middle East & foreign affairs expert, just tweeted about this air strike: "Al Qaeda's air force"
Good for Israel! Whatever was stored there was most likely marked for the use of Hezbollah’s ongoing assaults against them in the murder of civilians.
Mattis is smiling tonight. So is this former 1/8 Marine mom.
Perhaps missiles rather than planes?
“Syrian state TV quoted the army as saying several rockets were fired from an area near Lake Tiberias in northern Israel just after midnight which landed in the compound of the airport, a major facility for elite Republican Guards and special forces. The airport was rocked by multiple explosions, some of which were captured by social media...”
“The airport southwest of the capital is a major strategic air base used mainly by Syrian elite Republican Guards and had been a base used to fire rockets at former rebel-held areas in the suburbs of Damascus. State television did not give any further details..”
“...In the past, Israel has targeted positions of Lebanon’s Hezbollah group inside Syria where the Iranian-backed group is heavily involved in fighting alongside the Syrian army. According to Israeli breaking, the airport was bombed because it was a “suspected holding ammunition depots for Hezbollah.”
Israeli defence officials have voiced concern that Hizbollah’s experience in the Syrian civil war, where it has played a significant role and recently helped the Syrian army regain the eastern sector of the city of Aleppo, has strengthened it.”
Has the Fraud condemned Israel’s actions and threatened them yet?
