Israel Dropped 2,000 Bombs on Syria in 2018: Chief of Staff

Israel Dropped 2,000 Bombs on Syria in 2018: Chief of Staff

Alwaght- Israeli army's chief of staff has openly confessed that the regime has been bombing Syria on a “near-daily” basis for years, in an alleged campaign aimed at degrading Iran’s supposed military buildup there.

“We struck thousands of targets without claiming responsibility or asking for credit,” Eisenkot stated, the outgoing Israeli army's chief of staff has acknowledged, confessing to carrying out strikes on a “near-daily” basis.

The occupying regime rarely acknowledge striking specific targets in Syria but its outgoing chief of staff just openly confessed to running a large-scale bombing campaign in its neighbor’s territory. In 2018 alone, Tel Aviv dropped around 2,000 bombs on alleged Iran-linked targets, Gadi Eisenkot told the New York Times in his final interview as chief of staff before he retires next week.

While the Syrian government repeatedly accuses the regime of constantly violating its sovereignty and aiding the terrorists by their raids in the country’s airspace, Eisenkot claimed the Israeli actions are justified – and that, anyway, neither Damascus nor Tehran can do anything about it.

"We have complete intelligence superiority in this area. We enjoy complete aerial superiority. We have strong deterrence and we have the justification to act."

Despite the Lieutenant General’s claim about a moral high ground in the battle against the perceived Iranian threat, the Israeli Air Force was caught in several reckless –and sometimes lethal– actions during their missions in Syria. On Christmas Day the Israeli jets used two civilian aircraft in flight as cover to engage targets in Syria, the Russian Defense Ministry said, noting that israeli F-16s flew in as civilian jets were landing at Beirut and Damascus airports.

While a tragedy involving civilian airliners was averted last month, similar Israeli tactics led to horrific consequences before. On September 17, Israeli jets put Russian Il-20 recon plane into the path of Syrian air defense interceptor missile after failing to give Moscow enough warning of a strike on Syrian targets.

The Israeli tactics resulted in the deaths of all 15 Russian crew on board and compelled Moscow to supply Syria with S-300 missile defense systems. Russian also warned that, in the event of any threat to its servicemen deployed in the country, it will jam radio and satellite signals from military aircraft approaching from the Mediterranean, which seemingly forced Israel to slightly adjust its bombing routine and routes.

Yet, despite repeated dangerous behavior in the air, Israeli regime continues to intrude in Syrian airspace under the “the campaign between wars” military strategy which envisions a continuous and lengthy engagement to degrade an enemy’s military capabilities. Developed by Eisenkot, the tactic was given the green light by the cabinet in January 2017.
