In the aftermath of one of the most severe Israeli attacks on Syria “in decades,” Iranian lawmakers said Thursday that Iran had no role in the attack, and that Shia nation doesn’t operate any bases in Syria.
Mohammad Javad Jamali Nobandegani, a member of the Iranian Parliament’s national security and foreign policy committee, said Israel’s claim that Iran had provoked Israel by firing first was “a lie,” adding that “Israel’s history of carrying out unprovoked attacks in Syria has been well-documented.”
“Iran does not have military base in Syria,” Nobandegani added.
And while Iran maintains that last night’s skirmish between the Israeli Defense Force and Syrian Army forces was a false flag, and that the IDF struck first (continuing its pattern of airstrikes and other military assaults in Syria), the IDF boasted Thursday morning that Tehran “will need a lot of time to recover” from the most extensive Israeli attack in Syria since 1974.
Meanwhile, Israel said Iran paid a “heavy price” for its (nonexistent) aggression following multiple Israeli airstrikes against what Tel Aviv said were targets belonging to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corp’s Quds Force.
Unsurprisingly, the alleged Iranian attack resulted in no casualties or damage to Israeli infrastructure, with no rockets hitting Israeli-held territory (the Golan Heights border region is considered Syrian territory occupied by Israel).
“Iran will need a lot of time and resources to rehabilitate its operational, military and intelligence infrastructures we hit tonight,” an IDF spokesman said. The spokesman warned that “any other attempt” to hurt Israel will “pay even more.”
A map of the military targets published by the IDF shows multiple sites near Damascus and also near the Syria-Israel border.
Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman claims “all the Iranian infrastructure” in the Arab republic was hit.

During the attack, Israeli jets and mortars struck intelligence sites and arms depots, among other military targets allegedly operated by the Iranian forces. Syria’s SANA state news channel said earlier that a Syrian radar installation was hit in the attack while “tens” of missiles were intercepted.
Though the IDF says it’s not seeking “further escalation,” the IDF says that “the Syrian regime will be held accountable for everything happening in its territory,” and has warned against any retaliatory attack.
“They must understand that if it rains here, it will pour there,” said Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who spoke at the Herzliya security conference near Tel Aviv several hours after the skirmish began.
Lieberman added that Israeli forces remain on high alert, but said he hopes this “chapter” is finished.
Naturally, most Western media like the New York Times – which has repeatedly demonstrated a fervent pro-Israeli bias – opted to take the IDF at its word, a move that drew consternation from independent Syrian journalists.

Of course, in the aftermath of recent attacks on Syria over “chemical attacks” which were alleged but never actually proven, why even bother to verify Iran’s claims when it’s easier to just quote Israel.
Iran Claims Israel Attack Was A False Flag
I agree and believe this to be true!
This is not the first nor the last time that Israel has played this game. Is there anything different from previous allegations that Israel claimed it has been attacked?
No – the story is the same
No destruction to any infrastructure of Israeli buildings.
No civilian or IDF deaths
Every so called rocket that has been fired at Israel falls short of hitting it’s big ass wall.
After years of this – Whether it be Lebanese, Syrians, or Iranians.
I have a difficult time believing that any of those group of peoples military are incompetent of hitting their intended target.
This is a false falg – anybody that has been paying attention to this region could see this coming.
“Of course the people don’t want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally, the common people don’t want war neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany.
That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship.
Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.”

Mohammad Javad Jamali Nobandegani (the dictionary say this gobbledygook is pronounced “Iranian Asshole”), a member of the Iranian Parliament said: “Iran does not have military base in Syria,”.
This is known as misdirection. Nobody has ever said Iran has a military base in Syria. It is irrelevant. The pertinent question is: Why are Iranian soldiers in Syria?
Oh, and just for background; Iranian soldiers have been in Syria for DECADES – which is curious given they don’t have a military base there.
“The pertinent question is: Why are Iranian soldiers in Syria?”
Same reason the Russian military has been there.
Killing those U.S./Israeli rebel groups that refer to themselves as Al-Qaeda and ISIS.
There is a logical reason why those terrorist groups are diminishing in Syria, an it has absolutely nothing to do with the United States Military.
“There is a logical reason why those terrorist groups are diminishing in Syria, an it has absolutely nothing to do with the United States Military.”
Never said it did.
You make a good Liberal. Always hearing what you want to hear and not what is said.
For the record: I don’t believe the U.S. should be in Syria at all but that is totally distinct from Israel defending itself.
“Same reason the Russian military has been there.”
This statement is not true either. Russia has a base there and was there long before ISIS was invented. Iranian soldiers are ONLY there to terrorize Israel.
Here is something you might want to ponder:
Israel knows where Assad lives. They can kill him at any time. Israel prefers Assad in charge because he has always kept his thumb on the Muslim radicals. It was the U.S. that destabilized the region lately. All Israel is doing is keeping the situation with the crazies in Syria from getting completely out of hand. You will also note that Russia is allowing this. Hint: There is a message in there also. Ponder it.
This is just wrong – Israel does not prefer Assad in power. Why has Israel been assisting the militants to attack the government. Why have they been supplying them with weapons & giving them medical treatment. If Israel wants Assad to stay in power they would be helping Syria to defeat ISIS.
You’re ignorance of 50 years of Mid-East history is showing.
Do not confuse supporting one faction against another with fighting Assad. The root of this conflict is Sunni vs. Shiite. Neither Assad nor Israel directly has a dog in this fight. They are just using it as cover to screw with the other guy. This is also why you see Saudi Arabia playing buddy buddy with Israel.
If a gang from another continent invaded your home, razed your town, and killed your friends and family, I doubt you would believe the gang was “defending itself.”

The pertinent question is, “Why are Israeli soldiers in Syria’s Golan Heights?”

If Iran is saying they don’t operate any facilities in Syria, then they shouldn’t care one way or the other about the attack on them.
And we know Iran always tells the truth, lying is against Islamic law.
No body cares who struck first when the one who strikes first is the one being threatened. The “educated sounding” commenters who complain about that first hit stuff are like mouthy bratty children who never been in a fight that start crying when their bully friend got smacked first on the playground after years of getting in the face of another student. Everyone can see what’s really going on and the whiners look like brats. Shut up. Israel’s here to stay. Iran should be spanked and learn to get on with other kids. But truth is, some creeds of the religion will never include half the other kids. Never fools. Never. So what you going to do. How you going to keep the playground calm? Kick the brat out of school who is causing the problem. But we have incompetent adults running the playground, they have said time and time again to the one getting picked on and that most kids didn’t like, take care of yourself kid. And they did, they still are right now and they will.
Exactly, good points. I got into more fights with bullies in school than I want to think about. I used to got to ‘school officials’ about it every time before doing anything and they always gave me the brush-off. One teacher once told me to handle it myself. She shouldn’t have said that. I really took it to heart, LOL.
But THE TORAH ENCOURAGES 6 TYPES OF LIES:
(1) lying to gentiles (Baba Kamma 113a)
(2) lying to keep out of trouble (for “peace”) (Yebamoth 65b)
(3) when everyone should know you are lying, guzmah (Hullin 90b)
(4) scholarship (including Torah scholarship),
(5) sexuality, and

Lie beer man
Now, that sounds trustworthy.
Got beer, anybody. This is quite an interesting story.
I say we make a fortune as a nation and arm the living sh*t out of both sides and let them destroy one another. Let the fire of war burn hot and out of control until there ain’t one Muslim or Jew left standing. If we exert any military effort I figure it should be just to keep them contained in the Middle East til its all over.
The US and Israel smacks someone in the face and then cry “aggression” with as much media might as it can muster if the blow is blocked.
god Kevin you’re slow….
You have a lot of catching up to do. For homework, go back and read about the “Yom Kippur War”. That would be a good starting place.
All these strikes, false flags, threats, attacks, warnings, comments from “experts”, broken treaties, moving troops and equipment around, propaganda and much more are machinations taking place here and the Middle East are designed for a variety of reasons. The greatest reason, however, is to ultimately lead nations which are majority white with a Christian culture to fight a large war against each other, in effect, to wreck our civilizations and destroy our cultures once and for all.
Don’t be misled or fooled; the turmoil around the world but especially in the Mid-East are calculated to create conditions where countries must choose whom they will ultimately side with (US or Russia), and therefore setting the stage where one of the superpowers must eventually act offensively against the other. Why can’t the US and Russia just ignore the piss ants causing havoc, why can’t we just say let them wreck themselves, leave us out of it.
Sir. Perfect comment. God bless you.
Americans are not realizing that if Iran is not dealt with the American economy is over so …. what is going to happen is going to happen AND Iran is IRI and are terrorists implementing it’s Islamists all over the world to conquer all nations.
Call me “slow to the party”, I have also stumbled upon similar information with regard to this planned assassination of Trump. The perpetrators are called, The Shining Path. As it is with the Sanchez Peredes cartel, operating out of Peru, this group is a facillitator between Middle East terror groups, MS-13 and various drug cartels operating within Central America and now, inside of the United States.
One of the reasons that I found Paul Preston’s assassination plot revelation so compelling is because I am already aware that Trump, and for good reason, does not trust much of the Deep State infested Secret Service. I have previously reported that the President uses the Marines to provide much of his security. I have learned, independent of the fine work of Paul Preston that it was the Marines White House detail that called off the President’s trip to South America as they came across details of the plot. I have also been told loyal elements of the FBI shared similar information with key White House staffers. Additionally, I was told that the Federal Reserve shared key information on this point with Trump’s guard detail. Why would they do that? The answer is simple, Trump is protecting the Petrodollar as much as possible. Now, I am not here to make excuses for this President, however, his unwarranted and participation in the false flag Syrian chemical weapons attack and subsequent retaliation, was a deal made between Federal Reserve interests and Trump. The Fed needs Syria and Iran knocked out of power and thus, collapse the gold backed oil sales coming out of Iran. The Federal Reserve is willing to go to war over this issue, because it is a survival issue for this institution. Without a viable petrodollar, the dollar will collapse along with your job, pension and bank account. This is why Trump capitulated and gave the Federal Reserve what they wanted, which is to unseat Assad before turning their attention to Iran. I was told that it is the belief of American intelligence agencies that if Syria falls, Russia will not feel that they can adequately defend Iran from Israel. To date, Russia has not shown any real interst in going to war other than the typica blustering against the US imperialism.
The perpetrators of the assassination plot against Trump, The Shining Path, have distinctive Red Dawn ties to the paramilitary groups that are training in El Salvador and Honduras. They are also tied to the old CITGO oil empire which, in part, evolved into the BRICS organization which is seeking to destroy the Petrodollar by confining oil purchases to gold while bypassing the international agreement which only permitted oil sales in dollars. Interestingly, the old CITGO alliances tie directly to George Soros front groups and directly to the Chinese government. I do not believe that China wants war, at this time, with the US, however, this event and subsequent discovery of Shining Path’s involvement would have led to blaming China and thus, World War III could have commenced. Thi sis specufflation, but this is probably why China is cooperating with Korean unification. What this definitely indicates is that although the Federal Reserve is not active in trying to assassinate President Trump at this time, larger scale banking interests are very much interested in starting WW III and framing China for any assassination attempt. This group could be none other than the Rothschild’s Bank of Internation Settlements.
Trump’s complicity in the Syrian chemical weapons false flag attack is now understandable given how these moving parts of this story fit together.Trump has reached a deal with the Federal Reserve and regime change for Syria and Iran is his objective. Further trump needs a healthy Federal Reserve to continue to bolster his economic recovery for America. It is an ugly partnership, but it is a partnership.
My source for this information does not have a name as far as the public is concerned. He is a former ARSOF member. He was the source for my ground breaking revelations regarding the near military coup that almost took place against Obama by key members of AFRICOM and part of the Navy in the midst of the Clinton based plot to assassinate Ambassador Stephens because his CIA activities regarding gun-running, drug-running and child trafficking which were beginning to leak right before the 2012 election.
Blah blah blah….
Can’t read. ah.
Trump,Drumpf is playing for the Crown’s team. IMHO.
Israel’s confiscation and occupation of the Golan Heights (which formerly belonged to Syria), was starting to look lousy on a PR level. The solution? Give it back? Not a chance. Take more Syrian territory? Why not? How much? How about all of it. Then that pipeline the U.S. and the EU have been chaffing at the bit for. Conquer Syria and the gas line becomes Fait Accompli. The EU stops being at the mercy of Russia.
War was inevitable.
“Israel’s confiscation and occupation of the Golan Heights”
This is properly know as the spoils of war. As I recall, the US got a lot of its territory the same way… probably to include the place you call home.
“The EU stops being at the mercy of Russia.”
Given how Russia behaves, this would be a good thing. Not our fight though. Let the EU save themselves. Perhaps the French could withhold some Bordeaux from Moscow.
Ahhhh all of those sand-rats over there can suck it and suck it good!!
Embrace the hate you simple mf’ers… I swear you’re gonna go blind worrying about all this nonsensical bullshit. News flash bitches, SAME AS IT EVER WAS!
I know, I know it’s fun and entertaining to sit back and watch the 3rd world burn from the comfort of your easy chair while suckin on a Natural Lite or whatever redneck piss water you favor…….
Until it’s not…. ?☠️
Looks like the bar mitzvah boys are about to go postal.
Israel is doing the same thing that Poland did to Germany before the war. Bully and talk smack. Germany got fed up and did something and got stomped on. This is all a ploy to get Russia into a war so the international banking cartel gets rid of tha last countries who have stood up to the fiat money trap and want to rid themselves of the petrodollar rip off scam. Nothing more, nothing less. Whether you believe it or not, it doesn’t matter because there isn’t a damn thing you can do to stop it.
Sounds to me that the Iranians are afraid they will get their ass kicked. Saying that they didn’t fire missles and had no bases in Syria relieves them of the obligation to respond. Wise move, they would not be successful.
Think of 2006. The Israelis had total air supremacy over Lebanon – the skies were simply uncontested. The Israelis also controlled the seas (at least until Hezbollah almost sank their Sa’ar 5-class corvette). The Israelis pounded Lebanon with everything they had, from bombs to artillery strikes, to missiles. They also engaged their very best forces, including their putatively ‘”invincible” “Golani Brigade”. And that for 33 days. And they achieved exactly *nothing*. They could not even control the town of Bint Jbeil right across the Israeli border. And now comes the best part: Hezbollah kept its most capable forces north of the Litany river so the small Hezbollah force (no more than 1000 man) was composed of local militias supported by a much smaller number of professional cadre. That a 30:1 advantage in manpower for the Israelis. But the “invincible Tsahal” got it’s collective butt kicked like few have ever been kicked in history.
