Israeli Fighter Jets Intercepts Target Over Syria As Iraqi Resistance Announce New Attack (Videos)

Early on March 31, the Israel Defense Forces announced that one of its fighter jets intercepted “a suspicious aerial target” that was making its way into Israel from Syria.

The target was not detected as having crossed into Israeli territory, the IDF said in a brief statement, without providing any further details on the incident.

Later, the Islamic Resistance in Iraq (IRI), an umbrella group of Iranian-backed armed factions, announced that it launched late on March 30 a drone attack against a “vital target” near the settlement of Eilabun in northern Israel. In a statement, the IRI said that the attack was carried out in support of Gaza and in response to Israel’s “massacres” against Palestinian civilians in the Strip.

The aerial target intercepted by the IDF on the front with Syria was most likely the suicide drone launched by the IRI at Eilabun.

This was the IRI’s sixth attack against Israel in the past ten days. On March 21, the group announced an attack against a power plant in Tel Aviv and on March 24 it said that it had targeted the headquarters of the Israeli Defense Ministry, the HaKirya, in the central Israeli city.

On March 26, the IRI announced an attack on Ovda Air Base in southern Israel. The next day, March 27, another attack against an IDF base dubbed “Spear” was announced. Moreover, on March 29, the group said that it struck a target in the Israeli-occupied Syrian Golan Heights.

All recent attacks were apparently carried out using suicide drones, specifically a type that is thought to be made in Iran and is commonly known as Shahed-101.

The IRI began launching attacks against Israel as well as against United States forces in Iraq and neighboring Syria on October 17 in response to the war on Gaza -which broke out just ten days earlier- and Washington’s unwavering support for it.

Last February, the group suspended attacks against U.S. forces after the death of three American troops in a drone strike on a base in Jordan, reportedly upon a request from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. Nevertheless, it escalated attacks against Israel this month.

when your enemy has to deploy a million dollar weapons system to counter your hundred dollar weapon then you have a strategic advantage.


the usa is it’s own best enemy with defense contractors looting the treasury with impractical expensive weapons. economic defeat is just as real as any other.

the isreali apartheid regime is being attacked by hamas, by hezbollah, by iraqis, by lebanon, by yemen. the only people not attacking the isreali apartheid regime is syria, who the regime is currently bombing when ever they feel like it. before long, the whole of the me will be up in arms against this genocidal apartheid regime in isreal. and why not, they have earned it, and the inadequacy of the un have made this inevitable.


ask yourself the question. why are israeli jets able to fly across syria and air raid and shoot syrians at will ? it’s because of jew-controlled russia (led by the jew putin), not giving strong air-defence systems to syria or worse, even forbitting assad to use the ru s-300 against the israeli intruders. likely putin also forbit iranians to install their air-defence systems in syria. it’s a real evil game that is played.

we must remember that sergei shoigu wanted to punish israel after the russian aircraft was destroyed in 2018 with many russian experts who lost their life. so he sent the s300 to syria. many people wanted retaliation. but then pladimir vutin came and said it was an incident, he didnt even show any sadness for the russians killed by jews. so we can hope shoigu becomes new president


the reason is obvious. zelensky=jew; merkel= tavistock institute trainee & bnai brith member= jewess, israel=jews. trump & daughter ivanka & son-in law jared kuschner member of jewish chabad lubavitch end time sect= jews ; putin, medwedev, solovjov = members of jewish chabad lubavitch end time sect= jews. they do not care about gentiles be it germans, russian, americans or ukrainians.

i’ve asked those questions myself as many have. the only military aircraft in the skies over syria are usually russian or syrian so maybe the russian admin don’t want any more accidents bringing down russian planes. the more s-300 that are sent out to other countries means less to protect the border of russia.

Peter Jennings

it’s obvious that a deal had been struck between the isreali apartheid regime and the russian admin but what that amounts to nobody really knows. one thing is for sure and that is the isreali apartheid regime will break whatever agreement they had. they always do. the cracks are already showing so we should soon get some answers.


treba neustále útočiť na okupantov. nech nemôžu v noci pokojne spávať.


as long as ussan tax cattle feed the horned beast squatting in palestine the beast will wreak havoc. when $lumville is finally freed from the evil tribe ussans and refuses to be the golem of the demons that own rancho goyim then the evil khazar mutts in semitic palestine will be destroyed. that day is not far off…hence the barbarism of the zionazi beast that sickens all of humanity as it lashes out in rage at inncoent civilians whose land it stole.
