Israel’s defense minister said Monday that the Israeli government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu doubled airstrikes in Syria since taking power in late December 2022.
“Since I took office, the number of Israeli strikes against the Iranians in Syria have doubled,” Israeli Defense Yoav Gallant said.
While Israel frames its airstrikes in Syria as operations against Iran, and they occasionally kill Iranians, the strikes often kill or wound Syrian soldiers and civilians. This year, Israel targeted Syria’s Aleppo airport several times following an earthquake that devastated the city.
Israeli officials rarely comment on individual airstrikes in Syria, and Gallant would not offer a number on how many strikes have been launched by the Netanyahu government. He claimed the operations are weakening Iran’s capabilities in Syria.
“As part of this campaign, we are working methodically to strike the Iranian intelligence capabilities in Syria,” he said. “These strikes inflict significant damage to the attempts by the Revolutionary Guard to establish a foothold a few kilometers from the Israeli border.”
The uptick in Israeli airstrikes came as Netanyahu has been facing a political crisis over a planned judicial overhaul. There has also been a surge in violence against Palestinians, including a recent bombing campaign in Gaza.

Well, Bibi you now have the whole Arab League against you, plus your declared enemy, Iran, which is also friends with the Saudis.! poor friendless Israel!!!
They do have one big “friend”.
“Sucker” is more like it.
Like the Shiites and the Sunnis will suddenly abandon their feuding.
With a name like jake I suppose you support Mr Bibi
A person’s name does not determine their world view.
So far he has consolidated power by taking pages from other autocrats to remain in the office until his last day on earth. Naturally, he must do everything to provoke a retaliation to solidify his position. Anti BiBi voices all will be silenced once the real war breaks out.
That’s pretty much why they call him Satanyahu.
The other day I read about military sources in the U.S. talking about “super bunker-busters”.
Yea, I did too. But no one had a follow up plan when they try to use it.
More fantasies. Sure, they magically know where the “Iranians” are. It is a distraction from irreconcilable internal division. Both sides of the divide feel they cannot afford to lose. It is not a fightvover some abstract principles, but over their future. So, beating up on Palestinians or Iranians serves the domestic purpose. However, with Arab world today at a very different place, it will be perceived as attacking their pro-Iranian and pro-Syrian policies.
Correct Title: Netanyahu Government Says Doubled Its Ego by Airstrikes in Syria
Yes, there are no targets left in Syria. This is the psychosis of impotence that besets necrotic barbaric regimes in their expiring moments.
As long as Iran moves its missiles into Syria,there are targets.
One could not ask for a more aggressive war than that, really totally unprovoked aggression. When the poor mistreated Israelis annex the Golan Heights and kill some unruly Palestinian kids the world is silent, when they do it it is justified. Poor Israelis have suffered so much, now it is their turn to beat others to pulp. The Israelis are just very nice people. They can do no wrong.
It makes sense to attack Iran in Syria, perfectly legal.
The Western power elite is a syndicate of evil people, they surpass Hitler.
It wasn’t good enough for Netanyahu that there was an earthquake in Aleppo so he bombed the airport there. It’s not good enough for him that he’s preparing for war against Iran for its non-existent WMD’s so he kills Iranians in Syria. The Western Media calls what Israel, the US & other allies do “collateral damage” but says Russia deliberately targets the people it kills. They must think Russia is better @ playing darts.
