UPDATE: Latest Israeli Missile Attack on Syria..."WE DEMAND WWIII!!!!!!!!"

UPDATE #2:  April 17, 2018 according to Saker the missile Attack DID happen.  Who knows anymore?  "By deception......| Courtesy the "Fog of War and By Way of Deception" Newz.  This morning there is an update on last night's BREAKING NEWS that Israel had launched a missile attack on Syria.  According to this report, it was a False Alarm perpetrated by the 'usual suspects"
"   Claims made by Syria overnight that its air defences had shot down nine missiles from Israel were incorrect, a pro-Assad commander has said. He said the Syrian government's missiles were launched after a false alarm attributed to a 'joint electronic attack' orchestrated by the US and Israel. The commander, who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity, said the attack targeting Syria's radar system has now been dealt with by Russian experts...."

Israeli defense minister claims right
of 'total freedom of action' in Syrian airspace

BREAKING NEWS:  Several news outlets, including PressTV and RT are reporting that Syria is again the victim of missile attacks by foreign military jets.  So far at least 10 missiles have been intercepted and destroyed prior to reaching their targets.  Please read the following and I will have more thoughts in comments to follow:

A comment following PRESSTV report:

"Israel has a long history of lying and Robert Fisk related that while Tel Aviv was promising the US it was not attacking Beirut, Fisk was there watching the Israeli planes attack. Hopefully some identification of the missiles' manufacturer will be possible and that provide a 'Highly Likely' clue."


"Syrian air defenses repel missile strike against Shayrat air base in Homs province – state media 

Syrian air defense systems have been activated in response to a missile attack targeting Shayrat Airbase in Homs province, and, according to state media, managed to take down all the incoming projectiles.

Up to 10 missiles were destroyed by the Syrian Armed Forces, a military source told Sputnik. The Syrian air defenses managed to intercept some of the projectiles, according to a SANA reporter. Meanwhile, the Al Mayadeen news outlet is claiming that all the projectiles were intercepted and inflicted no physical damage or casualties at the targeted Syrian base.

The Pentagon has denied initiating strikes or conducting any other military activity in Homs province. “There is no US military activity in that area at this time,” the Pentagon’s spokesperson told Reuters. The same information was also shared with TASS news agency by Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahon.

The raid in Homs countryside reportedly coincided with another missile attack against a military airbase near Damascus. According to various Arabic media channels, three missiles targeted Al Dumayr airport, but they were all allegedly downed by the Syrian air defenses.

According to yet unconfirmed reports, the missiles entered Syrian airspace from Lebanon, which may indicate that the Israeli Air Force could have been involved, Al-Masdar News reports, citing a military source. The outlet’s reporter also published several videos allegedly showing the launch of interceptor missiles.

Israel, which hardly ever acknowledges its raids inside Syria, failed to comment on its alleged involvement. “We don’t comment on such reports,” an Israeli military spokesman told Reuters. The US Department of Defense spokesman, meanwhile, told Sky News Arabia that there are “a lot of players” in the region who could have carried out the Tuesday morning attack in Syria.

While it remains unclear who launched the attack, the reported strike comes just days after Washington, London and Paris carried out a coordinated strike in Syria in the early hours of Saturday morning. It also comes roughly a week after two Israeli F-15 fighters targeted another Syria’s airbase in Homs province, Tiyas (also known as T-4 Airbase).

Greencrow says:  There's something wrong with the Syrian Missile Defense System.  Sure, it's successfully knocking ALL the perp missiles out of the sky...but that's NOT good enough.  On a priority basis the Russians have to develop much better technology...something that will blow up the missile inches after it has left it's launching mechanism.  Now THAT's a good missile defense system!
