Last night Damascus was hit by two explosions. One, a suicide bombing at an officers' club, killed at least ten. The other happened at the Mezzeh airport. Damascus blames Israel. But, for disturbing reasons revealed by this Israeli intelligence report from DEBKAfile, Israel is an unlikely candidate. Who then? And why?
According to this Israeli news intelligence analysis, the war against ISIS is a "colossal failure." As a result, Israel now has threats pressing in from every border.
Iran-backed Hezbollah forces, including Russian-made artillery, are quickly amassing just over a mile from Israel's northern border with Syria. Are they preparing to attack the Jewish State?
At the G-20 economic summit in China, Obama and Putin met to discuss Syria. One President grimaced, the other smiled. Diplomatically, Russia continues to win; tragically, Syria continues to lose; and warily, Israel continues to adapt to a new superpower in the Middle East.
