Israel Behind Mystery Attack on Syrian Port – US Sources

World Events and the Bible

WEB Notes: We are witnessing a very interesting turn of events here. Notice there is no proof, but the U.S. blamed Israel anyway. There is no doubt in my mind it was Israel. However, an “ally” to lay blame with no proof? This Admin also told the world about a base of Israel’s that until then, was a “secret.”

Another note, if this story is accurate, Israel continues to violate International law by attacking Syria who has not touched Israel. After two years Syria still cannot expel the “rebels” from their own country. Syria is no threat to Israel, that should be common sense by now. This is all a lead up to Isaiah 17:1.  

(RT) – US officials have revealed that explosions reported at a key Syrian port on July 5 were likely the result of an Israeli airstrike.

Three officials spoke to CNN on condition of anonymity, referring to the pre-dawn explosions in the city of Latakia as an Israeli operation which allegedly targeted Russian-made Yakhont anti-ship missiles.

The Yakhont is a cruise missile with a range of 300 kilometers, capable of delivering a warhead weighing in at 250 kilograms. Russia supplied Syria’s armed forces with a Yakhont missile battery in 2011.

Shortly after the July 5 incident, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that “huge explosions shook the area where a large Syrian army base and weapons depots are located.”

According to reports by the SOHR published by Haaretz, fighter jets were seen in the skies around the city of Al-Haffah, which lies east of Latakia. Several troops were reported as having been killed or wounded in the ensuing explosions.

Syrian rebels said on Tuesday that “foreign forces” had destroyed advanced anti-ship missiles in Latakia, but only hinted that Israel had been behind the attack, Arutz Sheva reported.

Qassem Saadeddine, spokesman for the Free Syrian Army’s Supreme Military Council, reported that the rebels’ intelligence network had identified missiles being stored in the depots which were hit.

“It was not the FSA that targeted this,” Saadeddine told Reuters. “It is not an attack that was carried out by rebels. This attack was either by air raid or long-range missiles fired from boats in the Mediterranean,” he said.

Syrian rebels described hearing and seeing huge blasts, the ferocity of which was beyond the firepower available to the FSA.

So far the Israeli government has declined to confirm or comment on allegations that it was behind the July 5 attack on Latakia. If the claims are true, the attack would mark the fourth Israeli strike on Syria within the past six months.

In May, Israel launched two airstrikes on Syrian territory. One of the strikes was thought to be on the country’s Scientific Studies and Research Center, which was previously attacked by the Israeli Air Force in January. Another attack, which took place on May 3, targeted Fateh-110 surface-to-surface missiles provided by Iran and based at Damascus International Airport.

“We have set red lines in regards to our own interests, and we keep them. There is an attack here, an explosion there, various versions – in any event, in the Middle East it is usually we who are blamed for most,” Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon told reporters on Tuesday.

“There is an explosion here or an attack there, somewhere in the Middle East, most of the time they accuse us,” he added.

Israel previously stated that the acquisition of sophisticated weaponry by Hezbollah in Lebanon, which is supported by both Syria and Iran, would represent a red line and merit a response.

In all prior instances of strikes linked to Israel’s armed forces, officials have not gone on record to take responsibility for the incursions. At the same time, Tel Aviv has made clear that the country is prepared to go into Syria if it means preventing Hezbollah or other militant groups from obtaining additional weaponry.

Israel considers advanced missile systems such as the Yakhont to be a threat to vital infrastructure on the country’s coast, including gas reservoirs and a power station in Hadera, Haaretz reported. – RT: Israel behind mystery attack on Syrian port – US sources

  1. The Russians have been unusually quiet about this. I suspect much new technology is being developed and deployed by both sides behind the scenes.

  2. We have to look to what the CIA have said themselves about Israel and it has occurred to me that the WH might be playing a double game here looking to rid itself of the Israeli succubus that is not only driving the US into the abyss but sucking it dry at the same time.

    The CIA said in a quite shocking report that it believed Israel would between 5 and 20 years of the reports writing, become a failed rogue state indicating that religious extremism in Israel would break its tenuous hold on democracy and that the US may have to develop further plans to de-nuke Israel if that eventuality occurred, the CIA were most concerned with Israel’s apparent eagerness to arm their nukes when even Pakistan and India showed some form of extreme reluctance to use theirs.

    Whilst America was being driven to make economic empire out of its friends, America itself became a satrap to Israel who are now quite unabashed at admitting they control America and it is Israel’s toe-cap in the groin prodding that is driving America’s once benign foreign policy into this current warmongering and self hating entity we see today.

    And to what ends too, I have often wondered if Israel was seeking to destroy the US and reap from the dissent and discord that would ensue from the US continental breakup, divide and conquer and a US fighting itself can present itself as a good reward for Israel who could likely seize more power and control in such an event.

    Zionism, once upon a time described by Churchill himself as a canker that is infecting western business and government alike, has hijacked like a parasite its religion, its hosts, Churchill warned of the hijacking of the peaceful Judaism as a vehicle to achieve their goals and it was not for the holy land they wanted Israel but a mistaken report that showed the land of Israel and Palestine was a raft sitting on a sea of oil but there wasn’t any oil and the Zionists really messed up there.
