Large explosions were reported at a Syrian military air base early Sunday in an attack widely attributed to Israeli warplanes. However, Syria denied an attack had taken place.
The reported strike occurred just after midnight at Mazzeh air base near Damascus, a key regime facility thought to have been targeted by Israel in the past.
The military airport of Mazzeh, in the west suburbs of Damascus, was hit by a possible Israeli missile, which hit a munitions store setting off successive explosions, the head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights Rami Abdel Rahmane told AFP.
I find this guys youtube page to be an interesting source for Israeli going on.
This was not an air strike. It could not have been, because the Russians must hide the fact that their -300 and -400 SA platforms are ineffective against the F35 strikers Israel is presently deploying. I think They have 4 operational units at this time, 100 on order.
The high end arms market evolves, image is everything.
Many thanks for that!
I didn’t have time to check out the individual videos just now but have already subscribed and will watch some later.
From 7 hours ago:
US-led coalition forwarded a sum of 150 vehicles carrying military-logistic equipment to the SDF-held regions on the Eastern bank of the Euphrates River via Simalka passageway at Iraq-Syria border. more convoys will be sent to the US bases in Syria in coming days.

Your guy on YouTube is the only one who seems the slightest bit concerned that this could turn into a major war. Thank you. Nobody on FR seems interested. I haven’t seen the papers yet today but I expect the same nonchalance. Your guy is on my wavelength.
