Cecilia Uddéns sätt att beskriva och kommentera Israels attack är ganska häpnadsväckande – sverigesradio.se – inlägget är uppdaterat två gånger under dagen, alla tre versionerna finns på den – HÄR SIDAN – i den första versionen finns t.ex. det här: ”Den syriska regimen kommer att göra allt för att vända detta till en propagandaseger …” Rubriken i de tredje versionen – Israels nya flygattack mot Syrien en upptrappning – tyder också på att det är just det Israel vill uppnå, att hålla våldet och striderna igång, och helst få till en upptrappning.
Israel launches a second air strike on Syria; will it have re-precautions for Tel Aviv?
Alex Thomson – An act of war from Israel – but why now?
But what is really interesting is the timing. For these attacks by Israel come after a significant few weeks in which – in the central areas of the country, President Assad’s forces have made some notable strategic gains against the various rebel forces.
Alongside that, fighters from Hezbollah, coming in from Lebanon in the west to these central areas of fighting, have made a real impact on the ground.
It appears Israel has noted that and – under the guise of wishing to prevent the flow of arms from Syria to Hezbollah – has decided to act unilaterally.
New Israeli Airstrikes Hit Damascus

Ännu en attack från Israel mot Syrien! Är det så att USA och Ryssland försöker få till stånd ett slut på striderna i Syrien, och att det finns fraktioner bland västs finansgangsters som försöker förhindra detta?
sana.sy – Explosions Hit Scientific Research Center in Jamraya Caused by an Israeli Rocket Attack, Casualties Reported
Several explosions hit al-Hameh area in Damascus countryside on Sunday.
Initial information indicated that the explosions took place in Jamraya and targeted the Scientific Research Center there causing casualties.
The information also indicated that these explosions have been caused by Israeli rocket attacks.
The new Israeli aggression is a clear attempt to raise the gunmen morale after the painful blows they received at the hands of our valiant army in several places and after the achievements which were realized on the ground by our armed forces to restore security and stability to Syria.
Tony Cartalucci – Unprovoked Attack on Syria: US-backed Israel Commits Egregious International Crime
The West has carefully cultivated Israel into ”regional bully.” Immune from international condemnation, it is now being used to commit egregious war crimes against neighboring Syria, in hopes of provoking a retaliation and giving the US and its regional axis the justification it has long sought to militarily intervene.
Additionally, Israel’s selection by the US to carry out this attack was done specifically because Israel has long-ago exhausted its international legitimacy. What it is doing in Syria is a blatant international crime, in direct violation of international law. Currently, Syria and its allies hold the moral high ground against an enemy who is no longer fooling the world. If it is calculated that Syria can survive Israel’s unprovoked brutality, it would be best to do little or nothing, and incur internationally the same outrage that accompanies Israel’s brutality against the Palestinians.
In light of the US using Israel as its proxy against Syria, should Syria and its allies retaliate, it would be best to do so through any proxies they themselves have at their disposal. Just as Hezbollah and the Palestinians now routinely defeat Israel both strategically and politically, Syria now faces an opportunity to do so again, only on a much bigger scale.
The outrageous actions of Israel, the despicable double-game the US attempts to play by feigning disassociation with its regional beachhead in Tel Aviv, and the silent complicity of the UN, has people around the world desperately seeking retaliation from Syria, or Iran, or both. In reality, this is precisely what the West hopes to achieve – a wider conventional war in which they hold the advantage. By refusing to retaliate directly, Syria cripples the West politically, highlighting the unprovoked nature of their attacks on a nation they claim is a threat, yet fails to strike back even when its capital is under bombardment. By responding through its own plausibly deniable proxies, tactical and political pressure can be put on Israel to end its aggression.
It appears that the Western-backed terrorist front in Syria has been dealt a fatal blow and is in the process of complete collapse. The attack by Israel is a sign of desperation, seeking to expand a conflict that is about to end. Syria and its allies face difficult decisions and dangerous desperation in the coming days and weeks – with an axis of rogue states committing increasingly heinous atrocities in search of a response.
