SNAP SNAP SNAP: Syrian air defences fire on invading Israeli planes

September 6th, 2007 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

Israeli planes have invaded Syria from the northwest Mediterranean coast, and Syria has fired air defence missiles forcing the jets to leave.

No casualties.

Israel dropped bombs.

The most interesting point is that this story has come from SYRIA and not from Israel. Israel seems to be very very slow off the mark on this one. They could easily have played this one as ‘Syria attacks Israeli planes’, as they did when Israel bombed Damascus a few years ago (‘Israel destroys terror camp’).

This has been happening for years, but both sides have kept it quiet. Syria has been accepting Israeli overflights, not making an angry noise in the same way Lebanon has, protesting to the UN.

But the fact that Syria has taken the lead on this story, putting it in the public domain, shows that finally, finally, they may be playing the news-game just right.

They are not using phrases like ‘Zionist invaders’, but simply sticking to the facts: the jets dropped ‘munitions’ they said.

Israel has refused to comment so far.

    The reason Syria jumped on the story first might just be the story is fabricated. did you consider this? Also, where is the Syrian media showing live pictures from the aleged ‘bomb site’. None. Why? Propoganda. Doesn’t it seem to anyone very coincidental that days after the fall of the terrorists in palestinian camps this story goes out. Yes, done to stoke emotions and violence against Israel.

    So. You shouldn’t brag about Syrian media unless you know it is the truth.

    israel is testing the Syrian deffence system to see if the new Rusian weapons are as good as they say before the future war ,Israel might be looking for a way to Iran over Syria.

    Don’t worry anonymous, you can be assured very soon that there will be a proxy war with Israel, where Syria will not lay one finger and not shed any blood….

    Remember before least years summer war.
    Israeli jets flew over assads palace, after an Israeli soldier was abducted in the palestinian territory..
    Then a few weeks later
    Hizbollah(A STOOGE OF SYRIA), kidnapped the 2 israeli soldiers.

    The rest is History……..
