Following Airstrike, Syria Files Complaint Against Israel at UN

By, DEBKAfile, United with Israel & VOA News


Following the airstrike on Syria's Scientific Studies and Research Center (CERS), which is responsible for research and development of nuclear, biological, chemical and missile technology and weapons for the state, the Syrian Foreign Ministry sent a letter of complaint Thursday to UN Director-General Antonio Guterres and to the president of the UN Security Council, about Israel's "unabated aggression" against it and its support of terrorism. The terrorist organization Hamas also joined in and condemned the overnight attack on Syria, saying in a statement that they are opposed any aggression against any Arab or Muslim country.


Earlier that day, the Syrian army warned Israel of "serious consequences" officially accusing Israel of sending fighter jets to carry out a strike on CERS." The Syrian army warns of the serious consequences of these kinds of aggressive activities against the security and stability in the region," the statement began. “The army is determined to destroy terrorism and obliterate it in all Syrian territory, and it doesn’t matter what kind of aid is given to these terror gangs," it continued in an allusion to what it claims is Israel's active support for the terror group.


The Syrian army accused Israel of launching the strike in an "attempt to raise ISIS’ morale, which is collapsing after the crushing victory achieved by the Syrian army against terror," repeating its charge that Israel is in cahoots with the Islamic State. The attack proves Israel is directly supporting ISIS and other terror organizations," stated the Syrian army.


Syrian opposition news media reported early Thursday that Israeli aircraft had struck several Syrian regime targets Wednesday night.  One was the proscribed chemical weapons facility in which missiles are also produced.


A UN report published earlier Wednesday determined that Syria had used chemical weapons against rebel-held areas nearly 30 times since the country's civil war began in 2011, including the April attack in Adlib that left almost 90 people dead and hundreds of others wounded. Wednesday was also the 10th anniversary of the Israeli attack which destroyed a Syrian nuclear plant built by North Korea.


Syria warned about “dangerous repercussions’ after the Israeli Air Force attacked the chemical weapons development site.  The Syrian army stated through SANA, the country’s official news agency, that Israeli warplanes fired several rockets from Lebanon’s airspace, targeting a Syrian military posts near Massyaf in the Hama countryside, killing two army personnel and causing material damage to the site.


“This aggression comes in a desperate attempt to raise the collapsed morale of the ISIS (Islamic State) terrorists after the sweeping victories achieved by the Syrian Arab Army against terrorism at more than one front, and it affirms the direct support provided by the Israeli entity to the ISIS and other terrorist organizations,” the Army Command said in a statement. Syria has long alleged that Israel is secretly collaborating with ISIS in its war in Syria.

Rami Abdurrahman, who heads the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), said “Many explosions were heard in the area after the air raid,” adding that some of the blasts may have been secondary explosions from a missile storage facility being hit. He said Lebanese Hizbullah fighters and Iranian military officials often visit the site.


If confirmed, this would be the first Israeli attack on a Syrian target in years. While Israel has repeatedly attacked Hizbullah weapons shipments and convoys within Syria, it has refrained from striking at Syrian targets which were involved in the terror group’s military buildup. `stand by while Iran advances in Syria and establishes itself militarily on Israel’s northern border


Syria claims to have handed over all its chemical weapons, as part of an internationally-brokered deal in 2013, but the U.N. accuses Damascus of using chemical weapons on a number of times since. Lebanese media reported that the Israeli warplanes violated Lebanese airspace, launching their missiles at the Syrian plant from inside Lebanese territory.



 Five-Year-Old Five-Year-Old Told Leave School Bus, Stand on Road Alone


A five-year-old Haredi student was let off a school bus on a busy road in Beit She mesh. A passing civilian noticed the child standing alone on the road, and asked what had happened. According to the boy, the driver let him off since he was not properly buckled.


According to Kikar Hashabbat, the bus company said the bus chaperone, not the driver, was the one who decided to let the child off. The child, they said "caused problems...and was therefore let off the bus." They also said the driver and chaperone came back some time later and took the boy home. The boy's parents, they claimed, were told about the decision.


In a statement, the bus company said, "The Della transportation company is a professional company which abides by safety rules. In this case, the chaperone ordered the driver to let the children off. Any questions or comments should be directed to the client who ordered the bus, and not to the company itself."

 Paradise Regained, Paradise Lost

By Don Canaan (Commentary)

This year marked the 34th anniversary of the return of the Sinai by Israel to Egypt--a day of mourning by many of the 2,000 settlers who settled and later were forcibly evacuated by Israeli authorities under the command of Ariel Sharon, from the seaside city of Yamit on the Mediterranean.

Yamit was former Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Dayan's dream--a projected seaport and city of 250,000 founded on the Sinai sand dunes overlooking date palm trees and the blue Mediterranean--a populated buffer between the Gaza Strip and Egypt on the other side of the Suez Canal.

Some alternate historians say Moses and the children of Israel passed near the site of Yamit 3,500 years ago as they wandered for 40 years through the Sinai Desert on their way to the proverbial land of milk and honey.

Since April 25, 1982 only the whine of the desert wind weaves its currents through the crevices of destroyed homes, businesses and monument--a memorial to the young men who died during the 1967 Six Day war.

Christians, Jews and Muslims died during three Arab-Israeli wars and battles that took place in the Sinai in 1956, 1967 and 1973--Egyptian and Israeli--young people who fought and died in that desolate, forsaken desert wasteland.

The modern-day chariot carrying Egyptian President Mohammed Anwar al-Sadat hugged the intermittently green coastline of Sinai on its historic mission to Jerusalem. Israelis glancing upward into the clear night sky saw merely a jet banking gently to the northwest.

Official Israeli government policy was that the settlers had to be removed and the army came and forcibly removed the remaining diehard residents. The Jerusalem Post described the scene: Apocalypse had arrived in Yamit and in the dust and noise and destruction one could wander freely. Dozens of bulldozers and giant mobile air hammers were loose in the city like a pack of predatory beasts."

April 25, 20011 marked the 29th anniversary of Israel's withdrawal from Yamit and Sinai and a cold peace between long-term enemies.

That gift of peace silently glided overhead as the Sabbath disappeared and the stars appeared. At 8:01 p.m. Sadat's jetliner landed at Ben-Gurion Airport and the first minutes of a then potential peace came to the Middle East.

Old enemies became new friends. The crowds roared its approval when Sadat shook hands with Moshe Dayan. A person standing nearby, according to the Jerusalem Post, said Sadat told Dayan, "Don't worry Moshe, it will be all right."

The peace treaty between the two nations was signed on March 26, 1979 and on April 25, 1982; the events that had started on a November day at Camp David came to fruition. Sinai was returned to Egypt. Yamit was bulldozed to the ground. But Anwar Sadat did not live to see that day. He had been assassinated seven months before.
