PostSubject: How A Dubious BBC Report Gave Israel The "Green Light" For Last Night's Attack On Syria   Sun Dec 03, 2017 2:04 am

Syrian state television has confirmed that Israel attacked a military base outside of Damascus overnight on Friday, which Israeli media reports involved both surface-to-surface missiles and airstrikes, while Syria says its air defense systems were engaged and intercepted two missiles. Like other recent strikes inside Syria, the Israeli jets reportedly fired from over Lebanese airspace, in order to avoid both Syrian anti-aircraft missile systems and provoking a Russian response. Though the extent of the damage or casualties is not yet known, Syrian media has confirmed material damage to the base, and other reports indicate mass power outages in some of parts of Damascus occurred immediately after the attack, which SANA says happened at 12:30am local time.



It appears the base†is likely the same one featured in a November†BBC report†which showed satellite images detailing the purported construction and renovation of an "Iranian military base" near El-Kiswah, which lies 14 km (8 miles) south of Damascus. As we've†noted before, the BBC report was dubiously sourced to "a Western intelligence source" and†the story was quickly utilized by Israeli leaders to ratchet up rhetoric in preparing its case before the international community for further attacks on the supposed†Iranian†targets. Israel has long justified its attacks inside Syria by claiming to be acting against Hezbollah and†Iranian†facilities and arms depots.
