BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 A.M.) – At least three civilians were killed last night when the Israeli Air Force carried out an attack on the southern suburbs of Damascus, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported.

According to SANA, buildings in the settlements of Hujeira and Adliyah were also hit.

A source from the Syrian military said the Israeli Air Force targeted the Sayyeda Zaynab District of Damascus city after firing missiles from Lebanese airspace.

The source said the Syrian air defenses were quickly activated and confronted the Israeli missiles last night, but some of the projectiles managed to hit the Sayyeda Zaynab District.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) haven’t commented on the incident yet.

The Sayyeda Zaynab District is a popular destination during Ramadan, as many Muslims travel to Damascus to observe the holiday.

So Hezbollah resumed its pre-2009 habit of using human shields (an habit highly copied by Hamas since)?

Or the mighty IDF once again fails in getting its ordnance right onto its well-protected targets popping off 90% of its missiles on camera in well-timed interceptions and sticks to killing ordinary people in nearby apartment blocks, when it doesn’t hide behind airliners ? Bombing civies, Gaza and Lebanon style ? the way of the gloriously weak ? Tsahal’s mantra ?
