More Iranian-backed militias were targeted in a suspected Israeli airstrike over the weekend in the Deir ez-Zor region; Other interests are reported to have been hit in the attack.
In eastern Syria, the Deir Ez-Zor region, specifically Al-Bukamal, experienced what is believed to have been another Israeli airstrike over the weekend. Al-Bukamal has been a frequent hotspot for Israeli airstrikes, especially in the last year or more as Iranian entrenchment has grown inside Syria, something Israeli officials have vowed to prevent.
This would be the fourth Israeli airstrike in Syria in January should Israel be the source.
Al-Bukamal is the major border crossing town from Iraq into Syria as the Iranian regime continues to seek a “highway” from Tehran to the Mediterranean coast.
In Saturday’s attack, it’s unknown whether or not there was a specific target, though it is confirmed that multiple vehicles were hit. However, the Imam Ali base in the area may have been of designated interest as it includes several Iranian military elements. Additionally, it’s reported that a new shipment of missiles arrived from Iran at the end of the week.
Between the four strikes that occurred in January, several dozen pro-Iranian fighters were killed in addition to the destruction of weapons and military structures such as munition warehouses, tunnels, and various military vehicles. Each of the strikes took place nearly one week apart from each other.
Saturday night’s series of attacks amounted to 15 total airstrikes.
Again keep your eyes on the Middle East, including the face that Fake President Biden sent in troops to Syria. Military Industrial complex needs war for their success. JUST MY OPION.
JERUSALEM, Israel – Israeli fighter jets, helicopters, and aircraft carried out airstrikes against the Syrian military Monday evening in response to an attempt by four men to plant explosives near the security fence between Israel and Syria Sunday night.
The Israel Defense Forces struck numerous positions held by Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces, including observation posts, intelligence collections systems, anti-aircraft artillery, and command and control systems.
“The IDF sees the Syrian regime as responsible for all operations carried out in its territory and will continue to act with determination against all attacks on the sovereignty of the State of Israel,” said the IDF in a statement.
Syria’s official news agency, SANA, said that the Syrian military engaged “hostile targets” near Damascus, and the enemy airstrikes inflicted “material damage” in the city of Quneitra. Al-Arabiya reports that some injuries were sustained during the strikes.
Shortly before the airstrikes, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that an air raid by unidentified aircraft had killed at least 15 Iranian-backed militiamen in al-Bukamal.
Citing “reliable sources,” the group said the attack targeted “positions of Iranian forces and Iranian-backed militias in Imam Ali Base, areas near Al-Sekka, and in Al-Bokamal desert in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor.”
SOHR sources said that military vehicles transported dead and injured militiamen to Iraq.
On Sunday, Israeli troops killed four men who entered Israeli territory and attempted to plant explosives near an unmanned IDF post along the security fence.
Iran has issued an arrest warrant for US President Donald Trump and 35 others over the killing of top general Qasem Soleimani and has asked Interpol for help, Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said on Monday, according to the Fars news agency.
The United States and Interpol both dismissed the idea of acting on such a warrant

Many times conservatives have such high standards that we want to win, but not at any cost. Our winning depends on our being right not expedient.
We need to fight to win the long haul, but we need to realize that small battles won allow us to keep fighting. Libs never declare total victory, because they are always pushing for more. Win a skirmish, a small battle and brag like crazy, then come back for more.
Libs are never satisfied. They desire to change society. They are willing to wait as long as it takes to fundamentally change America. And slowly they try…..
