Firing At Israel? You Can’t Be Syria

The violence from the Syrian civil war is spilling across its borders and affecting Syria’s neighbors in the region. Not surprisingly, a Syrian shell landed in Israel yesterday.

The next thing you know, the area turned into what we who play World of Tanks would call an “arty party.”

The IDF fired a warning shot, in the form of a guided missile, at the Syrian military on Sunday after a Syrian shell exploded in the Golan Heights for the second time in recent days.

“In the midst of Syrian infighting, a mortar shell fired by the Syrian army struck near an [IDF] outpost at Tel Hazeka,” IDF spokesman Brig.-Gen. Yoav Mordechai said. The shell failed to cause injuries or damages, but was one of a series of shells that landed in Israeli territory.

Military sources said the IDF fired an advanced Tapuz-type missile at a Syrian artillery cannon.

At the time, Israel sent a warning message to the UN, saying that any further firing into Israel will result “in a real response,” sources added.

Yeah, that “real response” can be summarized by your average American rapper: “Israel gonna make it rain up in here.”

      About to step in it?! Respectfully, I think we’re seeing Assad flailing away trying desperately to cling to power or to flee Syria with as much dough as he can carry.
      But don’t forget that although Israel and Turkey USED TO BE on good terms, they stopped that when the IDF stopped the “Flotilla” full of Turks of military age who wounded and perhaps killed some of the IDF’s commandos.
      But hey, that’s OK, Syria ACTUALLY filed a complaint at the Useless Nations about IRAN trespassing on Syrian territory.

    Real – It’s my first post tomorrow. Can’t give it attention tonight; left eye is killing me from my contacts.

    Old NFO – Imagine the irony of a joint strike from Turkey and Israel.

    Rick – Already there, IMO.

    Ranba – Oh, I’m sure the PLO is already shouting that.

    I’ve got my popcorn ready. Should be fun to watch the Syrians get their asses kicked, again. The Israelis should also go all in on hezbollah while they are at it. Give the Iranians some food for thought. Of course the Israelis are on their own now, since last Tuesday. Don’t know if they GAS about whathisname.

    Can’t wait to see Fearless Leader leading from behind on this one.

    The way we’re going, he’ll attack Tel Aviv because of the bitch slapping Netanyahu gave him on global TV.
