BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:45 A.M.) – A little before 3:00 A.M. (local time) this morning, the Israeli Air Force struck the city of Masyaf in the western countryside of Hama.

The Israeli airstrikes struck the Syrian military’s positions around the Masyaf National Hospital; this would result in several explosions that could be heard throughout the Hama countryside.

A source in Masyaf said the Syrian military managed to shoot down some of the Israeli missiles; however, the latter would eventually overwhelm their targets.

At least three soldiers were wounded during the attack; they have been transferred to a nearby hospital for treatment, the source added.

Below is a video from Masyaf; it shows the Syrian air defense units attempting to intercept an Israeli missile.

The city of Masyaf is where Syria’s S-300 air defense system is currently installed; it was not used during this morning’s confrontation.

Thanks in advance, Daeshbag!


Russia is an accomplice in these repeated Zio/Nazi aggressions. There is only one adequate response. Throw out the Russians and bring in the full compliment of the Iranian Republican Guard instead. Russia and Putin are no allies of Syria. Iran is.

Let me remain you that without Russia, Syria wouldn’t exist. However, there were strong economical and commercial deal with Turkey, strong support of USA to kurds, and friendly relation with Israel (despite IL-20). Certenly, Russia does not want to upset Turkey, USA, and Israel. As a result, the partition of Syria has appeared.
