Huge explosion reported at Syrian air defense base

Unconfirmed reports suggest a missile strike from Mediterranean Sea; social media explodes with posts blaming Israel

A Syrian air defense base near the coastal city of Latakia was reportedly destroyed Wednesday night, with multiple Syrian and Lebanese sources speculating that an Israeli strike from the Mediterranean was to blame.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported a loud explosion in a Syrian army base, and Twitter users quoted eyewitnesses who said the blast occurred near Snobar Jableh, just south of the city.

Unconfirmed reports suggested the explosion was the result of a missile strike from the sea. And social media exploded with posts alleging that Israel was responsible.

The coastal strip of Syria, encompassing the cities of Tartous, Latakia and Baniyas, is part of a predominantly Alawite portion of the country which remains loyal to the Assad regime.

Earlier on Wednesday the Lebanese government news agency reported six Israeli aircraft flying through Lebanese airspace along the coast north of Beirut.

TAP – so much for the agreement not to fire missiles and hold peace talks.

    Obviously the rest of the world will condemn Israel…..won’t they!
    Plausable deniability gonna be used yet again and we can all go back to watching rubbish on tv, safe in the knowledge that the leaders of Israel, US & UK are the good guys and that Syria & Iran are the evil that we need to be protected from. Will be interesting watching the MSM tryying to convince us.

    If this is true it amounts to an act of aggression against a sovereign state and therefore a declaration of war.
    I advise watching RT News and you’ll get nearer the truth.
