The situation in Syria becomes more bizarre every day.
Israel launched a missile attack on the Syrian Army in Syria in response to a Syrian Army battle against terrorists during which “a projectile was launched from the Syrian territory and fell on the Israeli-controlled part of the Golan Heights, causing no injuries.”
I have yet to hear anyone offer any evidence that the Syrian Army deliberately fired “a projectile” at Israel. In fact, is it not possible that the terrorists fired this projectile and blamed it on Syria so that Israel would jump the gun and attack Assad’s forces with no more evidence than the word of a group of scumbags who would gladly cut the head off of every Jew in Israel? Nah, that’s crazy, right? How about it being an accidental overshoot or an errant rocket or missile?
This looks and smells an awful lot like Trump’s cruise missile attack on Assad’s airfield with about the same amount of evidence to support it…. ZERO!
I know we can’t trust terrorists, but now I am wondering if we can trust our own people and our allies. My first impression is that something smells awfully bad here. We will see how this plays out in the days to come.

“Enemy warplanes of Israel launched two missiles from the occupied territory [Golan Heights] at 18:45 [local time] on one of the positions of our army. It caused material damage,” the source told Sputnik.
According to the source, the strike was carried out when the Syrian army was repelling terrorists’ attack in Quneitra.
“These actions will not stop the fight of our Armed Forces against terrorist groups which are close to Israel,” the source added.
Earlier, the IDF said that a projectile was launched from the Syrian territory and fell on the Israeli-controlled part of the Golan Heights, causing no injuries. The Israeli military did not specify whether or not the shelling from the Syrian territory was deliberate or there was an accidental overflight of a projectile or mines through a dividing line. The troops have been searching the area.In November, the IDF said a missile believed to be launched from Syria, hit the Israeli-controlled northern Golan Heights without causing any casualties. The IDF responded with retaliatory fire.
Israel occupied the Golan Heights in the 1967 Six-Day War with Syria and annexed the territory in 1981. The international community has not recognized the Israeli annexation.
