JNS.org – Reports have revealed that a Hezbollah weapons depot was the likely target of a purported Israeli airstrike in Syria on Wednesday night, while a southern Beirut stronghold of the Iranian-backed Shi’a Muslim terror group was also rocked by twin suicide bombings on Thursday that left dozens dead.

Pro-Assad regime operatives on Facebook said that the strike, which was near the Damascus airport, hit “military outposts near the airport, and there is a high probability that it was IDF warplanes that struck,” the Jerusalem Post reported.

“Israeli warplanes entered from south Lebanon, arrived at Qalamoun and flew above the international airport in Damascus where they struck nearby military outposts,” Syrian opposition activist Ahmed Yabrudi said.

    The more terrorists that suicide bomb each other the better it is for us all.As described in Gog and Magog, the bad guys will turn on each other so lets hope that this is the start of that prophesy and the beginning of the end of fanatical Islam.
