Prayer Alert: Syria Threatens to Bomb Israel's Ben Gurion Airport

News Staff : Jan 23, 2019 : Israel Today

It is unlikely that Syria itself has the ability to make good on its threat, but Iran and Hezbollah do.

"Syria will practice its legitimate right of self-defense and respond to the Israeli aggression on Damascus International Airport in the same way on Tel Aviv airport," Syrian Ambassador Bashar Jaafari warned members of the UN Security Council, insisting that they "stop the Israeli repeated aggressions on the Syrian Arab republic territories."

Earlier this week, Israel carried out a series of airstrikes against Iranian military targets near Damascus. Recently-retired IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot acknowledged earlier this month that over the past several years, Israel had dropped thousands of bombs on Iranian and Hezbollah targets in Syria.

The Israeli strikes have been largely carried out with tacit Russian approval and a clear green light from the Trump Administration.

It is unlikely that Syria itself has the ability to make good on its threat, but Iran and Hezbollah do. And while both certainly know that an attack on Ben Gurion Airport would mark a major escalation and elicit a crushing Israeli response, some fear they might be crazy enough to disregard the consequences.
