A commander of the Israeli Air Force, Major-General Amir Eshel January 29 warnedSyria is falling apart, and who knows what will happen tomorrow. Tomorrow the war could not be, said the general, but we have to be ready for it — "just in case".
In addition, the Israeli armed forces, including the Air Force, were at the highest level of readiness since January 25.
An anonymous source "Reuters" recalled, that Syria has Russian missiles and other "advanced" weapon: a "arsenal." No such weapons in other states Near East. Israeli officials have openly expressed concern about the modern Russian weapons in Damascus, including anti-aircraft and anti-ship missiles. Israel fears that if such tool fall into the hands of "Hezbollah" in the adjacent Lebanon, in the event of a confrontation would weaken the defense of the Jewish country, if not punch a hole in it.
As for the Syrian WMD, in Israel they say about 1,000 tons of chemical substances from Assad. This information leads past Israeli national security advisor Uzi Arad.
The above-mentioned General Eshel describes arsenal of Bashar al-Assad as a "huge, partly modern, partly — unconventional."
Rumors and excitement and speculation of analysts suddenly … realized. January 30 at the dawn of the Israeli Air Force aircraft hit Military research center near Damascus. In order to avoid detection by means of ground planes were flying on a small height. According to the Syrian authorities on the subject two people were killed and five others were wounded.
In a statement, the Syrian side said that the Israeli Air Force attack was preceded by "unsuccessful attempts" to capture a military facility that had been made in a few months "terrorist groups."
Need to see that Israel's declaration of a "pre-emptive strike" and "just in case" were not empty words. And generally affects a very small distance from words to deeds.
By the way, for a day or three before the air raid, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, that need to be taken to prevent danger from the Syrian chemical weapons. Then spread the message about the concentration of aircraft in the northern Air Force bases.
After an air strike Western press is full of speculation about the purposes of attack. Referring to unnamed sources or anonymous sources diplomatically in circles reported that the object of the attack was a truck with a tool that Syria as if meant to convey the militants "of Hezbollah." In the car, as if transported by air missiles. Anonymous sources "Reuters" said an air raid helpful. In their opinion, Israel has given the Syrian side to realize that we should not try to arm the "Hezbollah".
But the Syrian state news agency SANA insists that the blow was dealt to the research center. And, according to the same «Reuters», this center in Jaramana is amongst the rest of the chemical tool.
As for the convoy, as the guide of Syria in Lebanon, the Syrian government denied Post about it.
West insists, "The Associated Press" transferred from Beirut that the purpose of the attack was the party implements for "Hezbollah". According to anonymous sources, as soon as Israel was preparing to prevent the supply from Syria to Lebanon SAM "Buk-M1-2" Russian production, which can change the strategic balance in the conflict with Israel, "Hezbollah".
What SAM! .. In Israeli press were even some titles: "Russia is helping Assad nuclear weapon?"
Had Prime Minister Netanyahu send in Moscow, the head of the Council of National Security — retired General Yaakov Amidror. He has to hold talks with his Russian officer Nikolai Patrushev, and Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov and discuss the issue of preventing looting Syrian arsenals. The Israeli government is concerned about the probability of occurrence and the terrorists of modern anti-aircraft and anti-ship missiles supplied by Russia "to the Assad regime."
At the current time, Moscow inspects messages IAF air strike on Syria. Russian Federation Ministry of Foreign Affairs has arranged on its Web site message, in which clearly said:
Taking immediate steps to clarify the situation in all its details.
Bezotstupno again call for an end to at least some violence in Syria, avoiding any interference from the outside and top obschesiriyskogo dialogue on the basis of the Geneva agreements of 30 June 2012. "
So makarom while Hillary Clinton in his "testament" the State Department (announced in an interview with the South American national public radio) reads that our home did not seem to want to move forward in implementing the Geneva agreements, Moscow and only does that calls for the implementation of these agreements.
The West in general can not accept the fact that Our homeland obstinate against Syria. In the day of the Israeli attack in the blog of the newspaper «L'Espresso», a note-known blogger Antonio Carlucci. This Signor writes:
Oh, that bloody Our homeland with her characters: a carnivorous bear, a bottle of vodka and the Kalashnikov. And forever totalitarian power, ready to cr
ush the people as their own, not a damn thing no idea of liberalism and the people nearby. Neuzh, the Kremlin and in fact "can not live without Assad?"
It turns out that this is the case a little differently, if a blogger writes. Bashar al-Assad himself said, expressing support for the government of Syria, Our homeland protects itself, not power in Damascus. This assessment of the position of Moscow comrade gave Assad met with a delegation of the Arab public that visited the palace Raud. Assad also reiterated its continued support for the Geneva communique "Action Group" of 30 June 2012. According to him, Syria "was able to overcome the most difficult leg of the journey, at the moment we are making to the process of return of refugees to their homes and the province is also the beginning of reconstruction."
Speech on the decay of Syria, on the future on the days of victory, "the opposition," the "collapse" of the country appears to be well in advance.
The position of the Russian Federation — is unchanged.
Our homeland, as well as Syria continues to insist on compliance with the Geneva accords. The deputy head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Gennady Gatilov said "Interfax" that this is not a review of the arrangements and all that, "recorded in Geneva," remains relevant. According Gatilova, Our homeland is ready to open a discussion with partners how these provisions should be implemented in practice.
But you can open a discussion, for example, with the Western "partners"? After all, according to the same Clinton, John Kerry transmission case, Moscow once again on the side of the Syrian president — "the death of the people."
Against the backdrop of the West started by the discrediting of the Russian Federation, including the likely use of a chemical weapon against civilian persons mercenaries «Britam Defense» under the control of Mr. David Golding, whose correspondence to the Web was hacked not long ago a cracker, "will" Clinton becomes clear. After all, no one expects from John Kerry's change of course the State Department. And because of the Russian Federation has no choice as to defend itself. Its interests in Syria. His face in foreign policy. Give way to the aggressors is tantamount to surrender.
