Considering that Benjamin Netanyahu has been having some problems forming a coalition government, it is not surprising to see another aggressive military action from the Israelis.
The Israeli military has confirmed striking “a number” of Syrian Army targets in cross border raids that, according to Damascus, left at least three soldiers dead and seven others wounded.
“Israeli warplanes and combat helicopters attacked several military targets belonging to the Syrian army, including two artillery batteries, a number of observation and intelligence posts on the Golan Heights front,” the IDF said in a rare press release, noting that it also targeted Syrian Army air defense posts.
The raids came in response to two rockets, allegedly fired from Syrian territory into Hermon in the northern Golan Heights on Saturday night, the IDF explained, posting a video of the attack.
The IDF posted this on their Twitter account.

Who the hell knows if the alleged rocket attacks against them were even real. Jews make up all sorts of shit to justify bombing the shit out of people. They’re just poking a hornets nest with this type of military action.
Ultimately though, this whole thing seems like another distraction cooked up by Netanyahu and company for domestic political reasons. It looks like he’s going to face another round of elections regardless of what chicanery he pulls.
