The Latest: Israel says Iranians in Syria fired missiles
JERUSALEM (AP) — The latest on tensions between Israel and Syria (all times local):
Israel’s military says Iranian forces based in neighboring Syria fired about 20 projectiles at Israeli positions in the Golan Heights.
It says Israeli defense systems intercepted “some” of the incoming rockets and damage on the Israeli side was minimal. There were no Israeli casualties.
Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus says Israel views the incident “with severity” and has responded.
Israel has been on heightened alert in recent days, anticipating a possible Iranian retaliation. Iran has vowed revenge after blaming Israel for a series of deadly airstrikes on Iranian positions in Syria.
Pro-Syrian government media and activists reported earlier that missiles had been fired toward Israel from southern Syria late Wednesday targeting Israeli positions in the occupied Golan heights.
Should all out war break loose in the middle east, fueled by Drumpf's ratfuckery on the multilateral Iran deal, The Gadfly fully, and rightfully expects every single Trump supporter to offer up their very own military-age children to be in the first wave of invasion troops that will most certainly be necessary when the inevitable U.S. involvement and ground war in to Iran begins.
Think about it Trumpies - how much more passionately could you possibly demonstrate your patriotic duty to Trump Nation, and your worship of and loyalty to dear leader, than by bequeathing the lives of your own offspring as sacrificial cannon fodder in tribute to the glory of the Trumpian cause? . . . . .
♫ Onward Donnie's soldiers!
Marching as to war,
With the cross of Russia
Going on before.
Vlad, the royal Master,
Leads against the foe;
Forward into battle,
See, His suckers go!! ♫
