    A residence in Damascus was destroyed by Israeli missiles and what is not explained is this was the son of a Palestinian resistance commander, who was also assassinated in Gaza. So far, Iron Dome has intercepted twenty of over 200 missiles that made a mess around Rafah.

    Around the corner, the Ukranian tycoon who heavily backed the right-wing death squads has turned coat and is seeking rapprochement with Moscow.

    Here is the German answer to the Turkish prisoners: nothing. Just let them go.

    Russia has seized Sirrin Airbase as soon as the U. S. bugged out, and have looted a gymnasium. The landing strip will of course turn into a significant asset for humanitarian recovery.

    One of Iron Dome's Tamir Interceptors landed in Gaza with its radar and fuse intact, which means thy classified technology are now belong to Gazans. The U. N. has just reaffirmed that Golan belongs to Syria, and Israel should pay Lebanon for the 2006 oil spill. Trump and Erdogan just met, but nothing much seems to have come from it. Instead, the U. S. is invigorating Qamishli.

    Continuing the fracas from the top of the page, Israel claims that four missiles were launched by Iran from inside Syria, all were repelled, and they retributed by annihilating dozens of Iranian and Syrian military installations.

    Syria maintains they were watching their radar, the attack came in, and most of it was blocked, except for a few civilian casualties. Israel did not mention civilians.

    Why would Iran launch a measly four missiles to achieve nothing but massive return fire?

    They are busy with thugs paid $60 to start fires. Again there is a scene of legitimate peaceful protest against gasoline prices, into which, there is a mostly Saudi-backed media blitz, along with a few suitcases full of cash, to exploit the situation and turn it violent. There are now some heavily armed gangs and wounded police. Same way the Syrian situation started. We keep finding international tentacles that buy violence and terror where otherwise there would be little. Meanwhile, terror acts prevented by Homeland Security are believed to amount to zero.

    Syria tends to under-report its losses and defeats, but it does seem reliable to say their Frankenstein air defenses get rid of 70-80% of the incoming. Iron Dome probably can block four. What we can also see is they did not enter Syrian airspace beyond Golan. It is relatively easy for them to take jabs at Damascus which is fairly close to them. Oh, and recycle the same story.

    Turkey is far from pleased with Israel in general, a few years ago they had almost become fellows, but now with the West Bank, embassy in Jerusalem, etc., it's all evaporated. Their invasiveness to Syria seems to have come to a standstill.

    It seems that the UAE and Syria’s President Assad have come to some agreement about the state of affairs in Syria and the Middle East.
