Strong blasts have hit the Syrian capital, according to media and eye witness reports. According to state TV a military research center was targeted. It also says that the explosions have been caused by an Israeli rocket attack.

The blasts reportedly occurred in the area around Mount Qasioun in Damascus in the early hours of Sunday.

The area hosts a military research center in Jamraya, which came under Israeli attack earlier in January.

The Israeli Air Force conducted an airstrike on Syrian territory on Friday reportedly targeting a shipment of advanced missiles.

Video footage uploaded onto the Internet showed a massive ball of fire rising into the sky. RT could not immediately verify the authenticity of the video.

My heart breaks for the innocent in all of this.

It is on and crackin'. Russia must have given the green light. I guess they are to divide the spoils.

It is gonna be real bad amongst Israel's muslim neighbors, they are not gonna get down with this.

Maybe all hell is about ready to break loose??

I highly doubt this will get much mainstream media coverage, unless its to glorify Israel in some way.
This is truly sickening.

Well be hearing about the target later, but i suspect they are after weapons being transferred to Hezbollah or some other group.
Otherwise itll be the chem weapons prolly.

I just cant understand why any rational sensible government would preemptively attack another nation.

Yes I realize that the US government has done it for decades but I said "rational and sensible".

And of-course if the Syrians defend themselves against israel, they'll be obliterated thanks to US tax payers.

What kind of bomb was that? In the second video it's all small explosions up till 20 seconds and then mushroom cloud. That couldn't have been a tactical nuke, could it?

ah...they hit weapons it.

IMO bull puckey. That is their excuse they are trying to keep weapons away from Hamas. They are the only nuclear power in the Middle East. They have more hardware than nations 10 times their size.

They have an agenda and the US is down with it. They want to reinvent the Middle East.

Bout time Israel got off the pot and did something without asking the USA. Granted I am certain they are using money/weapons that the USA gave them....
