Israel Bombs Syria for Second Time This Week … Series of Powerful Blasts Shake Damascus

 

From Reuters, Israel has bombed Syria for the second time this week. Powerful explosions rocked the outskirts of Damascus early Sunday. Syrian state television said Israeli rockets had struck a military facility just north of the capital. Earlier this week, Israel carried out a bombing run to prevent missile transfers to Islamist militants (VIDEO). President Barack Obama defended Israel’s right to bomb targets inside Syria to protect themselves. Syria is a tinderbox about ready to explode and we have a “dithering” president who makes claims of acting if a “red line” was crossed and then backs off as he does with domestic policy like the clueless over his head “Community Organizer” in Chief he is. Being President is just a little different when you play chicken against those in the Middle East than the GOP isn’t Barack? Obama is between a “Barack” and a hard place and has no idea what to do. How’s that Arab Spring working out for you Mr. President?

Israeli jets devastated Syrian targets near Damascus on Sunday in a heavy overnight air raid that Western and Israeli officials called a new strike on Iranian missiles bound for Lebanon’s Hezbollah.

As Syria’s two-year-old civil war veered into the potentially atomic arena of Iran’s confrontation with Israel and the West over its nuclear program, people were woken in the Syrian capital by explosions that shook the ground like an earthquake and sent pillars of flame high into the night sky.

“Night turned into day,” one man told Reuters from his home at Hameh, near one of the targets, the Jamraya military base.

More from the Washington Post:

Israeli warplanes bombed the outskirts of Damascus early Sunday for the second time in recent days, according to Syrian state media and reports from activists, signaling a sharp escalation in tensions between the neighboring countries that had already been exacerbated by the conflict raging in Syria.

Though there was no official confirmation that Israel had carried out the attack, the Israeli military later announced that it had deployed two of its Iron Dome rocket defense batteries near its northern border in response to what it called “ongoing situational assessments.”

Videos posted on the Internet by activists showed a huge fireball erupting on Mount Qassioun, a landmark hill overlooking the capital on which the Syrian government has deployed much of the firepower it is using against rebel-controlled areas surrounding the city.
