‘Kill first!’ Netanyahu claims Israel’s Syrian strikes thwarted imminent ‘Iranian aggression’

Via RT…

The Israeli Defense Forces have struck multiple ‘Iranian targets’ outside Damascus, claiming it helped prevent a deadly attack by ‘killer drones.’ Syrian state TV said the country’s air defenses intercepted most of the missiles.

There were multiple reports of explosions in the sky over Damascus on Saturday evening before midnight, as Syrian air defense forces engaged “hostile targets” coming from the direction of the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. In a rare admission, the IDF confirmed the raid, claiming that it targeted Iranian Quds Force operatives and Shiite militias who were allegedly planning a “large scale attack of multiple killer drones.”

The raid reportedly focused around Aqraba village, southeast of Damascus, but the majority of the missiles were intercepted before they could reach their targets, Syrian military sources claimed. There was no immediate confirmation of any death or injuries, even though Israeli military spokesman Jonathan Conricus said there might be casualties among the ‘militia.’

Israel frequently launches airstrikes in Syria, citing its inherent right to battle the ‘Iranian threat’ anywhere at any time, but rarely comments on specific operations.

“Our forces operate in every sector against the Iranian aggression,” Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted after the attack. “If someone rises up to kill you, kill him first.”

What psychopaths? By that reasoning, every other country in the world has the right to bomb Israel, because terrorist groups may well organize inside it. What a joke? With their great shill in office (Trump), the monstrous Zionists are more brazen than ever.

I would suspect that the average Russian would have a lot more courage than you if the tremendous courage of Russian servicemen and women in Syria is anything to go by. I remember well the Russian tented field hospital that was erected in the middle of civilian blocks of flats in order to treat the sick and wounded civilians caught up in the US/NATO backed terror shelling during the liberation of Aleppo. There were female Russian doctors there who refuse to retreat even when guided mortar bombs were fired at the hospital that was out of the line of sight,… Read more »

Don’t get butt hurt. I was talking about Putin’s government, not about the Russian troops.

@ Worvingtom Knight. It may have escaped you, but the English Language is rich in words to describe exactly what the writer wishes to convey. You wrote, “Bloody Russians have no balls ????”. That statement implies that you were describing Russians in general. I would disagree anyway with your reply where you subsequently indicated that the Russian Government was the target of your opprobrium. President Putin took the helm of Russia after more than a decade or the planned looting of Russia’s natural resources and the planned destruction of her engineering and military equipment sales etc by the USA and… Read more »

It’s called sucker-punching and then the whole thing comes down to who’s willing to be suckered and for how long.

Israel, you’re taking a long jog over a very short pier here. Don’t push your luck. Even America’s patience is starting to wear thin.

Notice how the IDF attacked “suspected” Iranians. They are not even sure who they are killing but they are sure that they “prevented an attack” by drones.

Was just having a little giggle about the”Killer Drones ” wonder if these are the ones that IDF sent over to Syria and the Russians took control of them, landed them checked them out. Now i suppose if you where in Israel you would think when are these bloody drones coming back, so i reckon they would be as jumpy as a cat on a hot tin roof ,ready to lash out at anything . Just a thought.
