Diplomatic sources in Beirut told Kuwaiti newspaper al-Qabas that 13 Hezbollah activists were killed in an alleged Israeli strike in Damascus over the weekend. The report has not been confirmed by any other source.

According to the report, Hezbollah has been unable to identify or locate the source which provided the intelligence allegedly to Israel that led to the sites being attacked.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which opposes the regime of Bashar al-Assad, said at least 42 Syrian soldiers were killed in Sunday’s strike, citing information from military hospitals.

    …and this is just the vorspeis. And since our friends at Hizbolah made their life mission fighting the Zionists, the Zionists are simply obliging. Everybody should be happy, I know I am.

    May there be many more Hizbullah, Revolutionary Guards and Syrian soldiers in body bags if Iran and Syria continue to threaten Israel.

    What a relief it is to hear that Israel has done something in its defense rather than threaten and then do nothing. Maybe now it will do something about Iran’s nuclear threat.

    Bravo Israel! Really awesome the the way you go off trampling the sovereignty of your neighbors with such impunity. And all with the blessings of our first Jewish president who pathetically stands before the world defending Israel’s right to defend her people. You probably know better than any of us that he would have your back if any of those neighbors decided you were the real threat and launched a raid on your nuke stockpile. Good luck.

      syria never revoked their declaration of war vs. israel. Bravo Israel for fighting back against an enemy sworn to your total annihilation.

      This is the most delusional post I have ever read. Jewish President! What a laugh.

    • Israel struck at Hizbollah because Hizbollah is an every-day threat to Israel. Arms on the way to Hizbollah in Lebanon, which will be used to bomb Israel, as in the past, are a causus bellus for Israel. Unfortunately, Hizbollah aims at the total destruction of Israel, and Israel is thus put in a position of having to defend itself from Hizbollah, wherever Hizbollah is. Countries that don’t want to suffer because of Hizbollah should make sure that Hizbollah doesn’t use them for its own goals.

  • Hi Shalom and tov miod benIsrael.

    As we approach the era of the dawning fulfillment of the prophecies of torah, the God of truth will wage war against the the god of lies and deception.

    Israel which stands on the side of the God of Truth should not back down to the god of lies, for in the end, good will thrive over evil and Israel will win has it had done in the biblical past and will do so again in this dawning era of endtimes.


    We are praying and standing with you brother Israel
