Israel Attacks Military Outposts In Syria With Jets & Ground-To-Ground Missiles

The Syrian army have reported that Israel attacked several military outposts near the Syrian capital with jets and ground-to-ground missiles in an early-morning strike. They also claim that Syrian air defenses shot down one Israeli plane and one missile during the Tuesday morning attack.

In a statement the Syrian army described the attack as “flagrant Israeli aggression” and renewed its warning of the dangerous repercussions of such attacks, holding Israel “fully responsibility for its consequences.”


The statement said the Israeli warplanes fired at the targets in Syria from inside Lebanon’s airspace, while the missiles were launched from the occupied Golan Heights.

Israel would not immediately comment on the report, though it has a long record of attacking targets inside Syria which, it claims, is necessary to prevent the transfer of advanced weapons to the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah. The group, which is perceived in Israel as a proxy of its nemesis, Iran, has been supporting the Syrian government in the multifaceted conflict, which has been gripping Syria since 2011. A senior Israeli military official disclosed last August that the nation’s air force had struck targets in Syria some 100 times.

The Syrian statement said Israel’s attack was aimed at supporting terrorist forces, to bolster them after advances of the Syrian army.

ALERT ALERT

Newsweek’s Headquarters
Raided By The NYPD

The headquarters of Newsweek was raided by the NYPD Thursday morning. Police reportedly took photos of the magazine’s servers.

New York Post reports:

About two dozen NYPD officers and investigators from the Manhattan district attorney’s office raided the offices of Newsweek and its parent company, IBT Media, on Thursday.

IBT Media was co-founded by Jonathan Davis and Etienne Uzac. The IRS placed a $1.2 million federal tax lien against Uzac in December 2017.

The agents were said to be photographing servers in the offices, but not downloading any files at the offices on 7 Hanover Square, according to sources.

Few details have emerged from the raid.

“Looking into reports that the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office @ManhattanDA raided Newsweek/IBT Offices today….sources say police have been there for hours. The DA has declined to comment,” tweeted reporter Avi Asher-Schapiro.

Newsweek is also in the news Thursday after an “insider” told The Wrap editor Jon Levine that the magazine has abandoned journalism for “rage clicks,” in the Trump-era.

“Newsweek was once a premiere media organization and an incredible springboard for young journalists hoping to grow a name for themselves,” the source told Levine.

“The company culture has turned the newsroom into a toxic work environment, while the publication has descended into a content farm for last-resort clickbait,” the source added.
