Israeli airstrikes against the Syrian Tryas Military Airbase have left at least 12 people dead, and considerable damage. There are claims that fighter jets and cruise missiles were involved in the attack.
Locals reported over 20 missiles hit the site, and Syrian media initially expressed the belief that this was a US attack. The Pentagon denied involvement, however, and both US and Russian officials have since confirmed the attack was Israeli.
Israel attacks Syria often enough that this makes sense, and the fact that the attacking planes were said to have come from Lebanese airspace also suggests Israel, as that is their standard method of strikes against Syrian targets. The base attacked, indeed, was attacked by Israel just back in February.
Israel is believed to be using a Dolphin Class submarine for the missile attacks, and their usual array of warplanes for the airstrikes. Israeli Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef has said that Israel has a “moral obligation” to intervene in Syria militarily.
Israel, of course, has not confirmed being behind the attack. This is not uncommon for Israel, who has acknowledged only a tiny fraction of the myriad attacks they’ve carried out against Syria in recent years.

God bless Israel!
Why? The gas attack was probably from the rebels or ISIS.
SYRIA NEEDS TO RESPOND BY ATTACKING TEL AVIV.
very anti war. By the way Assad has killed thousands . Never bothered you or your kind in the least.
Syria & Russia, both terrified of Israel, will do noting except “protest” & snivel.
So Israel hasn’t claimed responsibility for the strikes,America hasn’t claimed responsibility but,the headline on this site is “Israel Attacks ” ? Where’s the proof? Isn’t this the same site that’s asking for proof that Assad gassed his own people but, with no proof is pushing the narrative that Israel attacked Syria,before America bombs Assads military? Why is the person writing these stories so skeptical of the entire western world’s perspective but,is quick to embrace the narrative Russia is pushing? Why the double standard I thought this was an antiwar platform that doesn’t choose sides?
” I thought”
So far, all available evidence contradicts that claim.
When I said I thought I was saying “I thought this site was an antiwar platform that doesn’t choose sides”as in un-biased and it’s purpose was to prevent war and save lives,not promote anybody’s military.
The purpose of Antiwar.com is to oppose war. And it does.
Syria thought the attack came from the US but it turned out to be Israel. So Syria was right.
