Israeli airstrike on central Syria leaves 2 dead, 7 wounded

Source: AP

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — Syria’s military said Israeli warplanes attacked army positions in the country’s central region early Wednesday, leaving two civilians dead and seven people wounded — six of them soldiers.

State media quoted an unnamed military official as saying the warplanes fired missiles while flying over the airspace of neighboring Lebanon. State news agency SANA quoted the official as saying that the strike occurred at 1:26 a.m. (2326 GMT).

The official said that Syria’s air defenses shot down most of the missiles, adding that in addition to the casualties there was also some material damage.

A Syrian opposition war monitor said the strikes hit positions housing Syrian fighters loyal to Lebanon’s Hezbollah group, west of the central city of Homs.

1. Seriously doubt that they shot down air-to-ground rockets

2. AP still looking for a fight that takes.

That areas choice of continuous War and fighting is getting old. Peace is good, cover that, there is a lot of it around the world. To me AP is a bummer most reads. Give those angry reporters a new job.

4. Yes, since 1948.

But what's more relevant is that Iran uses Syria to smuggle weapons etc to Hezbollah in Lebanon.
