The left is not going to be happy over this, as Donald Trump's Military Operations is exposed against ISIS. Israel have conducted a bombing campaign over Syria, just one day after President Putin liberated the country from ISIS.

Israel bomb hell out of Syria following ISIS defeat

The Israeli army attacked an anti-aircraft battery near Damascus Monday after it claimed a Syrian SA5-type missile attempted to target Israel Air Force planes.

Haaretz.com reports:  The Syrian missile did not hit its Israeli targets but the Israel Defense Forces decided to hit the battery, the army said.

The army targeted the battery with four bombs and, according to the IDF, the battery was damaged to the extent it was no longer operational. The army said the battery targeted was the same that fired at Israeli jets last March, prompting Israel make use of its Arrow anti-missile system for the first time.


The Syrian military warned of “dangerous consequences” following the rare strike, claiming that they successfuly hit an Israeli jet during the strike. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded to the strike, saying that “today they attempted to hit our planes,” calling the incident “unacceptable.” He added that “if anyone attempts to harm us, we will harm them back.”

Israel believes Syrian forces fired out of assumption that the Israeli planes intended to attack. The Israeli army spokesperson told reporters that the planes were instead on a reconnaissance mission in Lebanon, photographing sites for Israeli intelligence.

“The Syrian regime is responsible for any firing from its territory. We see this incident as a clear provocation and we will not allow it,” said Ronen Manlis, an IDF spokesperson in a briefing with reporters.

“If anti-aircraft fire is being carried out for any military activity, we will respond as we did now,” he said.

The Syrian missiles were fired at IDF planes on a routine photographic mission that flew into Lebanese territory, an area under the protection of Syrian missiles. The Israeli army says that they are prepared for the possibility of Syrian retaliation, but do see the incident is an escalation.

Before striking Syria, the IDF says it notified Russia of its intentions. The attack comes hours before Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu will arrive in Israel for an official and he will meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who is hosting him.

In September, the Israeli military struck a chemical arms plant in in Syria, foreign media reports claimed at the time. The Syrian army general command confirmed in a statement the attack on what they called a military facility, and said that two people were killed and extensive damage was caused. Israel refused to comment on the reports.

Israel has attacked convoys bringing arms to Hezbollah and groups on several Israeli fronts dozens of times over the last five years, a top Israeli military commander confirmed for the first time two weeks ago.

The number of Israeli attacks on such convoys since 2012 is approaching triple digits, Maj. Gen. Amir Eshel, the outgoing commander of the Israel Air Force, told Haaretz.

The headline on this post is OVERSTATED... striking ONE MISSILE BATTERY is not bombing the hell out of Syria.  Israel's enemies would like nothing more than to use such headlines as propaganda to support the idea that Israel is an aggressor... when in fact, Israel was merely responding to an attack on its reconnaissance aircraft by anti-aircraft missiles fired from the battery they eliminated with a counter battery air strike.

Israel is not attacking Syria indiscriminately or unilaterally... they are merely responding to Syrian attacks on their aircraft as they attempt to engage Lebanese terrorist groups.  Syria would be well advised to stop their aggressive attempts to knock down Israeli aircraft... as long as they do, they can expect to suffer serous casualties and equipment losses.

 I do not think its over stated, and beside you was not there, and the attacks came after Russia did what they did, and Trump did what he did because of the media bashing for attacks ordered by Trump against ISIS.

 This time buddy I do not agree with ya...

LOL Tif

 

Tif...

Attacking ONE MISSILE BATTERY is not bombing the hell out of Syria... period.  Bombing the hell  out of Syria would be a criminal act... a war crime.  Israel has enough enemies attempting to smear her with such accusations we don't need to be fueling them.

Israel was simply responding in a defensive manner to Syria's attack on their aircraft flying over Lebanon's air space... by taking out the aggressive missile battery in Syria they are justified under international law.  There defensive reply to Syrian aggression is not a criminal act. 

The International Laws of War are at play here... claiming Israel BOMBED the hell out of Syria would make her in violation of the laws of war and make her a war criminal.  Let's not do that ... ok. Israel is very measured and careful about how they engage their neighbors... they are used to defending their acts as legal in the UN and various international courts and conventions.

 Like it or not Israel is now in the war against ISIS, ISIS CanKissOurAss, and I agree with this posting Russia hit ISIS, Israel took out a missile complex, that belong to ISIS, and the odds of it being funded by, Obama and Hillary Clinton, is at a all time high.

Israel Bomb The Hell Out Of Syria Following ISIS Defeat

1) ISIS doesn't have Russian made SA5 missile batters... this article was clear.. it was a Syrian SA-5 missile battery... that fired upon Israeli aircraft resulting in the Israelis taking the battery out:

2) Here is how it was reported:

"The Israeli army attacked an anti-aircraft battery near Damascus Monday after it claimed a Syrian SA5-type missile attempted to target Israel Air Force planes.

Haaretz.com reports:  The Syrian missile did not hit its Israeli targets but the Israel Defense Forces decided to hit the battery, the army said.

The army targeted the battery with four bombs and, according to the IDF, the battery was damaged to the extent it was no longer operational."

3) Four Bombs don't make for bombing the hell out of Syria and Syrian missile batteries are not ISIS units... Dang, are you able to read?  Let's try to keep the sensationalism out of our comments.  Israel has enough problems in trying to keep the world from labeling it a war monger and criminal. We don't need to help Israel's enemies by reporting she bomb the hell out of Syria.

Mr. Ronald Have A Nice Day Man

Israel has been involved for sometime now, this of course is not to be seen in American Media News, because of the link to Trump?

Trump Really Is 'Bombing the Shit' Out of ISIS Just Like He Promised

President Donald Trump pledged on the campaign trail to “bomb the shit” out of the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) in Iraq and Syria, and new figures reveal that he is doing just that. The United States-led coalition dropped more than 5,000 bombs on the group’s positions in August.

"Coalition airpower continued its annihilation of ISIS, releasing more than 5,075 weapons, the most of any month in the three-year campaign to defeat ISIS,” the figures released by the U.S. Air Forces Central Command showed. 

This number surpassed the previous monthly high for the campaign known as Operation Inherent Resolve, which was 4,848 in June, and double the number the year before, when it was just 2,244.

The military force said the majority of the strikes in August were conducted in support of Iraqi and Syrian ground forces battling ISIS on two fronts: to liberate the northwestern Iraqi city of Tal Afar, which has now been wrestled from the jihadist group; and the eastern Syrian city of Raqqa, where a coalition of Kurdish-Arab fighters are continuing a months-long siege.

Under the Trump administration, U.S. military commanders have been handed a greater remit to decide strike locations and the frequency of those strikes. Already, 2017 is the year with the largest number of bombs dropped by the coalition, with only three-quarters of the year passed. 

The year has seen 32,801 weapons released in the campaign against ISIS, compared to the campaign under the Obama administration, in which 30,743 were released in the whole of 2016, and 28,696 in 2015. The number of sorties is much lower than those in previous years, however, with 13,109 in 2017 so far, compared to 21,116 in 2015, and 21,181 in 2016.

The figures do not account for coalition aircraft, so they are not a full representation of the total bombing raids used against ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

Along with the Trump administration’s new strategy to defeat ISIS, the battle for the northern Iraqi city of Mosul was in play for more than half of the year.

The operation, which began in October 2016, became a nine-month slog that ended in Mosul's Old City with the capture of key buildings such as the famous Al-Nuri Mosque where ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared a self-proclaimed caliphate in July 2014.

Trump’s Defense Secretary James Mattis said during the operation that the military had changed its strategy and was beginning to use “annihilation tactics,” instead of attrition, to defeat the group. 

“Our intention is that the foreign fighters do not survive the fight to return home to North Africa, to Europe, to America, to Asia, to Africa, we are not going to allow them to do so,” Mattis said in May. “We are going to stop them there and take apart the caliphate.”

Increased strikes have brought increased casualties. Rights groups have condemned the U.S. coalition’s bombing raids for creating greater collateral damage. In one particular case, U.S. coalition strikes killed more than 100 people in the western Mosul neighborhood of al-Jadida.

The coalition said the building it had struck had been rigged with ISIS booby traps and resulted in a greater blast than what would have been caused by munitions. The U.N. and Mosul locals had put the death toll much higher, with some accounts reporting more than 140 civilians killed.

The coalition is also battling ISIS in Afghanistan, where the group is growing in influence in several provinces and has used the country to commit large-scale attacks in the capital, Kabul. The figures for bombs dropped in the country are the highest they have been since 2012. There were 503 “weapons released” in August, the highest total since August 2012.

Mr, Ronald,

 President Trump made promises to the American People, I wonder does President Trump know about the No Fly Zone Over The Tower Of Babel, and there has been no military action taken against terrorists there.

 I think it is time for the American People to know this and President Trump, creating a Rock and a Hard Place, for the United Nations seeing how they named their new building after the Tower Of Babel .

ALERT ALERT

 Will  Tea Party Hand The Liberals Their Ass On Election Day? 

It was this week two years ago that Hillary Clinton’s victory looked assured, when the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape of Donald Trump bragging about sexual assault appeared all but certain to end his campaign.

Jesse Ferguson remembers it well. The deputy press secretary for Clinton’s campaign also remembers what happened a month later.

It’s why this veteran Democratic operative can’t shake the feeling that, as promising as the next election looks for his party, it might still all turn out wrong.

“Election Day will either prove to me I have PTSD or show I’ve been living déjà vu,” Ferguson said. “I just don’t know which yet.”

Ferguson is one of many Democrats who felt the string of unexpected defeat in 2016 and are now closely — and nervously — watching the current election near its end, wondering if history will repeat itself. This year, instead of trying to win the presidency, Democrats have placed an onus on trying to gain 23 House seats and win a majority.

The anxiety isn’t universal, with many party leaders professing confidently and repeatedly that this year really is different.

But even some of them acknowledge the similarities between the current and previous election: Trump is unpopular and beset by scandal, Democrats hold leads in the polls, and some Republicans are openly pessimistic.

FiveThirtyEight gives Democrats a 76.9 percent chance of winning the House one month before Election Day. Their odds for Clinton’s victory two years ago? 71.4 percent.

The abundance of optimism brings back queasy memories for Jesse Lehrich, who worked on the Clinton campaign and remembers watching the returns come in from the Javits Center in New York.

“I was getting texts after the result was clear – including even from some political reporters and operatives – texting me, you know, ‘Are you guys starting to get nervous?’ or ‘What’s her most likely path?’” he said. “I was like, ‘What do you mean, starting to get nervous? What path? They just called Wisconsin. We lost.’”

“People were so slow to process that reality because they just hadn’t considered the possibility that Donald Trump was going to be the next president,” he continued.

Lehrich said he sees similarities between 2016 and 2018. But he said he thought Democrats were cognizant of the parallels and determined not to let up a month before the election, as many voters might have two years ago.

Other Democratic leaders aren’t so sure. Asked if he thought his party was overconfident, Democratic Rep. Seth Moulton responded flatly, “Yes.”

Democrats could win a lot of House seats, he said, or could still fall short of capturing a majority.

“The point is that we’ve got to realize that this not just some unstoppable blue wave but rather a lot of tough races that will be hard-fought victories,” Moulton said.

If Democrats are universally nervous about anything after 2016, it’s polling. The polls weren’t actually as favorable to Clinton and the Democrats as some remember, something 538’s Nate Silver and some other journalists pointed out at the time.

But Clinton’s decision not to campaign in a state she’d lose, Wisconsin, and the failure of pollsters everywhere to miss a wave of Trump supporters in red areas are mistakes Democrats are still grappling with today.

“Clearly last cycle, polling was off,” Ben Ray Lujan, chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, told reporters last month. “There were a lot of predictions that were made last cycle that didn’t come to fruition.”

Lujan emphasized in particular how pollsters missed the rural vote, calling it a “devastating mistake.” He said the DCCC has taken deliberate steps since 2016 to get it right this time around, but underscored a congressional majority still required a tooth-and-nail fight.

“So I’m confident with the team that’s been assembled, but I’m definitely cognizant of the fact we need to understand these models and understand the data for what it is,” he said.

One Democratic pollster said the data he’s seen makes plain that the party is favored to win a majority — but that it’s still not a sure thing. He said even now it’s unclear if the political environment will create an electoral tsunami, or merely a good year where Democrats might still fall short of a House majority.

“We’ve all learned a lesson from 2016 that there are multiple possibilities and outcomes,” said the pollster, granted anonymity to discuss polling data one month before the election. “And if you haven’t learned that lesson, shame on you. That 20 percent outcome can happen. That 30 percent outcome can happen.”

This year, Democrats have history on their side: The incumbent president’s party historically struggles during midterm elections. That wasn’t the case in 2016, when Democrats were trying to win the presidency for three consecutive terms for the first time in their history since Franklin Delano Roosevelt (The GOP accomplished the feat only once in the same period, with Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.)

Some Democratic leaders say the reality of Trump’s presidency — unlike its hypothetical state in 2016 — changes the dynamic entirely.

“Democratic energy is at nuclear levels,” said Steve Israel, a former DCCC chairman. “Democrats would crawl over broken glass to vote in this election.”

Israel said he still has concerns about November (political operatives always have concerns about the upcoming election). But he waves away the notion that the party might fall short of a House majority.

“Most Democrats and a heck of a lot of Republicans I speak to believe that Democrats will have the majority,” he said. “The real question is, by how much?”

Ferguson is, of course, of two minds: He thinks the push to repeal the Affordable Care Act and the day-to-day reality of Trump’s presidency fundamentally changes how voters will see this election.

But he’s also gun-shy about what could change in the next month, after the multitude of surprises that occurred during the last month of the 2016 race, whether the “Access Hollywood” recording or then-FBI Director James Comey’s announcement that the investigation into Clinton’s emails was re-opened.

Many Republicans argue the 2018 election has already seen its October surprise, with the confirmation fight over Brett Kavanaugh finally motivating conservative voters to vote.

“I don’t know what the October surprises will be,” Ferguson said. “But we make a mistake if we assume that what we’re seeing today is what we’ll see for the entire month. We lived through it two years ago.”
