28 Israeli jets fired about 60 rockets in overnight strikes on Syria – Russian MoD

Israeli Airstrike In Syria Was “Most Extensive Attack In Decades”:

In what is now being described as the “most direct confrontation between Israel and Iran in decades,” Israel exchanged fire with Syrian and Iranian forces during a late-night showdown that ended early Thursday morning.

The exchange came days after Israel called up reserve troops to the Golan Heights, the disputed border region.

It also followed by less than two days President Trump’s decision to pull the US out of the Iran deal. Trump said Tuesday that the US would swiftly reimpose economic sanctions on Iran that had been lifted following the 2015 agreement.

According to Syrian media, some 28 Israeli aircraft fired around 60 air-to-surface missiles at Syria during the exchange. Iranian lawmakers have denied the IDF’s claims that Iranian forces in Syria provoked Israel by firing on their positions in the Golan Heights border area.

Israel also launched roughly 10 surface-to-surface missiles, which struck military targets near Damascus and in Southern Syria, according to the Russian military.

Iran Claims Israel Attack Was A False Flag:

In the aftermath of one of the most severe Israeli attacks on Syria “in decades,” Iranian lawmakers said Thursday that Iran had no role in the attack, and that Shia nation doesn’t operate any bases in Syria.

Mohammad Javad Jamali Nobandegani, a member of the Iranian Parliament’s national security and foreign policy committee, said Israel’s claim that Iran had provoked Israel by firing first was “a lie,” adding that “Israel’s history of carrying out unprovoked attacks in Syria has been well-documented.

As predicted…

(See related information below the following article.)

*****

In Major Escalation, Israel Unleashes Airstrikes, Shelling On Syria In Retaliation For Alleged Iran Attack:

Summary:

The situation is fluid to say the least, but as far as we can tell this is what has happened tonight so far:

1. Sirens go off in Golan Heights

2. Loud explosions heard

Then blame-game begins…

3. AP: The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported Wednesday that Israel has attacked targets of the Syrian military on the outskirts of Quneitra.

4. AP: Activists reported rocket fire from Israel into southern Syrian just before midnight Wednesday.

5. AP: The Israeli army says it is investigating and has no further details.

6. IDF report that Iranian Quds force fired 20 rockets towards forward IDF positions on Golan Heights.

7. According to al-Mayadeen (pro-gov) 10 positions of the Israeli Army were shelled with rockets, and several vehicles were targeted with guided missiles.

8. The IDF views this event with great severity and remains prepared for a wide variety of scenarios.

9. Exchanges continue…

So it is unclear who started the ‘fight’ but for now rocket exchanges continue.

This is simply about the existence of a non-U.S. client state in a key strategic region sitting on massive oil reserves. It’s about empire — global games of power and money fueled by a desperate attempt to hold on to a unipolar world where the U.S. bosses everyone around.”

“This Is As Bad As It Gets” – Magma Flowing From Hawaii’s Kilauea Forces Thousands To Flee:

After first erupting on Thursday, Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano has continued to send molten magma up through the eight fissures that have now opened up in the ground in a part of Hawaii that is home to several ritzy neighborhoods, including the tony Leilani Estates, where residents have been forced to flee as the eruptions, as well as several powerful earthquakes, have destroyed power lines and disrupted and left parts of the surrounding area without water.

One area resident summed up the neighborhood’s plight in a statement to the Los Angeles Times.

“This is as bad as it gets,” said John Bennett, 61, a resident of the Leilani Estates neighborhood forced to evacuate. “We can’t go back in yet. I feel lost. I don’t know what to think. I’ve never been in this situation before.”

The estimated 1,800 people who live in the affected area have sought temporary respite in government shelters. Others have moved in friends on other islands.

Green Berets Are Now On The Ground Assisting The Saudi War On Yemen In “A Marked Escalation”

Green Berets Are Now On The Ground Assisting The Saudi War On Yemen In “A Marked Escalation”:

Once again a creeping, years’ long shadow war is expanding from indirect proxy intervention to direct engagement, complete with US “boots on the ground” where no American ground forces were previously thought to exist.

And it’s not Syria, or Libya, or central Africa where the now familiar pattern played out before, but in the Arabian peninsula where the Pentagon has long claimed to merely coordinate intelligence, refuel jets, and provide logistical support to the Saudis which have been bombing Yemen since March of 2015.

On Thursday The New York Times revealed for the first time that US special forces have been on the ground supporting Saudi coalition forces since late last year:

US Army Special Forces Secretly Fighting Saudi Arabia’s War in Yemen:

(ANTIWAR.COM) — The US military is more deeply involved in the Saudi War in Yemen than officials ever admitted. In fact, new evidence suggests the Pentagon lied to Congress during the March debate about US involvement, presenting the US role at present being limited to targeting and mid-air refueling of Saudi warplanes.

The New York Times is reporting on Thursday that there are actually a small number of US special forces on the ground at the Saudi border with Yemen. Those troops have not only been on the ground since late 2017, but are there on a mission to help the Saudi military fight Yemen’s Shi’ite Houthi movement.

Turkish Cargo Vessel Rams Greek Warship In Aegean Sea

Turkish Cargo Vessel Rams Greek Warship In Aegean Sea:

In the last three months, tensions between two NATO member states have escalated dramaticallyTurkey has threatened to invade Greek islands, Greece has responded, and Greeks now see Turkey as the greatest threat to their existence., but today it appears the situation may have escalated dramatically as Turkish cargo ship KARMATE has collided with the Greek warship ‘Armatolos’ despite warnings that it was on collision course.

KeepTalkingGreece reports that the incident took place at 4 o’ clock Friday morning, South-East off Lesvos within Greek territorial waters. The Turkish-flagged ship had deviated form its original course and fled into Turkish territorial waters. The gunboat was on NATO mission “Aegean Activity” patrolling for migrants and refugees illegally entering Greece from Turkey.

According to a statement issued by the Greek Navy, the Turkish cargo came towards the gunboat, “approached and touched” ARMATOLOS on the left side. KARMATE increased speed and made it towards the Turkish coast. It did not respond to continuous radio calls from ARMATOLOS to stop.

China installs missiles on three South China Sea outposts

China installs missiles on three South China Sea outposts:

CHINA has installed anti-ship cruise missiles and surface-to-air missile systems on three of its outposts in the South China Sea, US news network CNBC reports, citing sources with direct knowledge of US intelligence reports.

The move, if confirmed, would mark the first Chinese missile deployments in the Spratly Islands, where several Asian countries including Vietnam and Taiwan have rival claims.

Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop said the Australian Government would be “concerned” if the reports were accurate.

The Minister refused to comfirm or deny any Australian intelligence about the missiles.

But she said: “If the media reports are accurate, then the Australian Government would be concerned because this would be contrary to China’s stated aspiration that it would not militarise these features.”

Trump Formally Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize (The Man Who Threatened To Unleash Nuclear Armageddon On The Korean Peninsula)

Trump Formally Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize:

A group of 18 GOP lawmakers led by Rep. Luke Messer of Indiana, have signed a letter formally nominating President Trump for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize.

The letter is addressed to the Norwegian Nobel Committee, and states that President Trump has worked “tirelessly to apply maximum pressure to North Korea to end its illicit weapons programs and bring peace to the region.”

“His Administration successfully united the international community, including China, to impose one of the most successful international sanctions regimes in history,” the letter says. “The sanctions have decimated the North Korean economy and have been largely credited for bringing North Korea to the negotiating table.”

Germany has just FOUR Eurofighter jets available for Nato action – SHOCK report reveals

All part of the plan by TPTB.

Germany has just FOUR Eurofighter jets available for Nato action – SHOCK report reveals:

GERMANY has just FOUR useable Eurofighter jets available for Nato action out of a fleet of 128, according to a shock report today.

Respected magazine Spiegel said that coolant leaks in the fighter’s sensor system which detects enemy aircraft or incoming missiles have grounded all but a handful of the advanced warplanes.It means Germany is falling far short of its obligations to the Nato alliance and would be unable to intercept or repel a large-scale incursion of its airspace.Spiegel reported that technicians were able to replace the defective sensor pods on the wings – but the spare part necessary to seal the cooling circuit is no longer available because the manufacturer has been sold and no longer producing it.
