U.S. Officials: Israel Behind Recent Syria Airstrike


img330466Arutz Sheva: “A series of explosions last week at a critical Syrian port was the result of airstrikes by Israeli warplanes, multiple U.S. officials told CNN on Friday.

Qassem Saadeddine, a spokesman for the Free Syrian Army’s Supreme Military Council, said that the rebels’ intelligence network had identified newly supplied Russian Yakhont missiles being stored in the depots that were hit.

“It was not the FSA that targeted this,” Saadeddine said. “It is not an attack that was carried out by rebels. “This attack was either by air raid or long-range missiles fired from boats in the Mediterranean,” he added.

Rebels described hearing and seeing huge blasts, the ferocity of which, they said, was beyond the firepower available to them but consistent with that of a modern military like Israel’s.”

Opinion: President Barack Obama told Saudi Arabia’s king on Friday that he is committed to providing US support to Syrian rebels who have been waiting for shipments of light arms that have been stalled in Washington.

That’s support to al-Qaeda rebels. Makes you wonder why we killed Osama bin Laden.
