According to the report, the targeted storage facilities housed long-range surface-to-surface missiles that Syria had transferred to the Hezbollah terrorist group. A number of Hezbollah fighters and Syrian military soldiers were reportedly killed in Saturday’s strike and members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard were reportedly among the wounded.

The same report said it was the third Israeli strike in the Qalamoun region over a period of one week. Israel declined to comment on the report.

The news came hours after Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu stressed the importance of cooperation with Russia in relation to military operations within Syria during a meeting with Russia’s President Putin on the sidelines of the World Climate Change Conference near Paris.

Days ago, a senior Israeli defense official publicly noted that while Russian jets sometimes breach Israeli airspace, close cooperation ensures that the planes are not inadvertently targeted by the Jewish state.

    We are currently experiencing the most potentially explosive environment since the Cuban Missile Crisis in October of 1962! Unfortunately, then we had a decisive, strong, contemplative President! The Polar opposite of our current President!

    Don’t allow them to get close. You are our Creator’s nation forever, so you are the only one to get rid of it forever.

  • Well done, Israel!

    As bad as it may seem, you need a strong dictator to deal with Islam. Democracy does not work against Islam as it does not work in Muslim countries either.

      Oh, I don’t know: Churchill, Roosevelt, et al (from the west) did okay against Hitler.

      Don’t underestimate the democracies when they _really_ get angry, not just a little upset.

        The Allies completely flattened large German cities and atom bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki. I would call that ‘resolve’. As you say, when deemed ‘necessary’.

      100% correct Peter. Very well put. Short, sweet and concise.
