#AceNewsReport – Apr.24: Israel had its most significant standoff with the Gaza Strip in months on Friday night, as the IDF struck Hamas positions in the enclave and 36 rockets from fringe militant groups were fired at southern Israel: The initial response from an Israeli tank came after the first missiles were fired at around 11 P.M. Following the strike, at least 17 more rockets were fired at communities in southern Israel according to Haaretz:
Israel retaliates after missile fired by Syrian forces targets Israeli aircraft and nuclear reactor: Over the course of the night, the Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted six rockets, while the rest fell in open areas, the IDF said.
All this is happening while a so-called nuclear deal is being worked out, one with which Iran has never complied; nor will it ever. The goal of Iran (and its proxies) remains the obliteration of the State of Israel. Ditto for surrounding jihadists, including the Palestinian Authority, Hamas, Hizballah, Fatah, Islamic Jihad and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).
“Israel retaliates after Syrian missile lands near nuclear reactor,” Reuters, April 21, 2021:
A Syrian missile exploded in southern Israel on Thursday, the Israeli military said, in an incident that triggered warning sirens near the secretive Dimona nuclear reactor and an Israeli strike in Syria.
An Israeli military spokesman identified the projectile as an SA-5 surface-to-air missile fired by Syrian forces against Israeli aircraft. He said it overflew its target to reach the Dimona area, 200 km (125 miles) south of the Syrian border.
The missile did not hit the reactor, exploding some 30 km (19 miles) away, the spokesman added.
The sirens that sounded overnight in the Dimona area followed weeks of heightened tension between Israel and Iran, a close ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, amid renewed global negotiations over Tehran’s nuclear programme.
For weeks, Israeli media have said air defences around the Dimona reactor and the Red Sea port of Eilat were being strengthened in anticipation of a possible long-range missile or drone attack by Iranian-backed forces.
In public remarks on Thursday’s incident, Israeli Defence Minister Benny Gantz said the anti-aircraft missile was fired from Syria during an Israeli strike there against “assets that could be used for a potential attack against Israel”.
Gantz said Israel’s anti-missile systems had attempted to intercept the SA-5 but were unsuccessful.
“In most cases, we achieve other results. This is a slightly more complex case. We will investigate it and move on,” he said. Israeli security sources said the missile exploded in mid-air.
In response, Israel launched further overnight attacks inside Syria, the military spokesman said, targeting several missile batteries, including the one that fired the SA-5.
Syria’s state news agency said the country’s air defence system intercepted Israeli rockets over the suburbs of Damascus “and downed most of them”. Four soldiers were injured and there was some material damage, it said…..
