Israel Attacks Syria

Israel has attacked a terror base deep within the borders of Syria.

JERUSALEM – Israeli warplanes bombed Syria on Sunday, striking what the military called an Islamic Jihad training base in retaliation for a suicide bombing at a Haifa restaurant. It was the first Israeli attack deep inside Syrian territory in three decades.

“Any country who harbors terrorism, who trains (terrorists), supports and encourages them will be responsible to answer for their actions,” government spokesman Avi Pazner said.
A direct military response by Syria appeared unlikely. One parliament member, George Jabbour, said military action has not benefitted Syria in the past.

It’s about time Israel did something about this. Syria has attacked Israel with impunity and without retaliation for far too long.
