A previous article said Israeli warplanes violated Syrian airspace multiple times. They overflew the Beka Valley. They attacked a weapons storage facility. They struck a convoy allegedly en route to Lebanon.
On Wednesday, they bombed a scientific research center near Damascus. Israel committed naked aggression. What follows bears watching. More on what happened below.
Israel is serial aggressor. It's targeted Syria for decades. In August 2008, Mossad assassinated Mohammed Suleiman. He was General and Special Presidential Advisor for Arms Procurement and Strategic Weapons.
He was in charge of financing and arming Syria's military. He had close ties to Hezbollah. Longtime Israeli spy Ali Jarrah provided logistical information. Israel used it to kill him.
Months earlier, Mossad killed Imad Mughniyeh. He was a senior Hezbollah leader. He was assassinated by car bomb in Damascus.
He was falsely accused of masterminding the 1983 US Embassy Beirut attack. He was spuriously linked to truck bombing French and US marine barracks in Lebanon.
Without evidence, he and Hezbollah were claimed to be involved in highjackings, hostage taking, rocket attacks against Israel, suicide bombings, and more.
Argentinean officials also bogusly charged Mughniyeh in connection with the 1992 Israeli Buenos Aires embassy bombing. It killed 29 and wounded another 242 civilians.
