I have travian friends from around the world and many in the Middle East. Tonight I have been told that Israel has hit both Lebanon and Syria but that has not been reported here - which indicates that either it has been covered up or it hasn't actually happened. Both are equally likely but .. well my friends in Lebanon sound fairly convincing. And why is the UK media not reporting it?
I heard a bird cry, sharp and free. My name is Jordan.
It is being played out in Syria, where Israel has mounted more than 100 airstrikes in the past six years on Iranian military bases there and to prevent weapons transfers to the Tehran-tied Hezbollah movement.
Shortly before Trump’s announcement, the Israeli military warned of the “irregular activity of Iranian forces in Syria.” And soon after the president spoke, explosions were heard near the Syrian capital Damascus, with Syria’s state media announcing military bases were being targeted in Israeli airstrikes.
On Tuesday night, Israel announced it had opened bomb shelters and called up some military reserve units as it braced for a possible Iranian response to the Israeli airstrikes on several Syrian military bases that are used by Iranian forces, one just south of Damascus. May 09, 2018
I guess the UK media appeared to be late in reporting it because the quickest and loudest reports they got were from Israel - "we were attacked and we are defending ourselves!" - and they know there will be arguments over who shot first.
