The UAV which penetrated Israel airspace from #Syria was…Israeli made?!

In July an unknown UAV penetrated Israel’s airspace from Syria. The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) did everything to bring it down, to no avail. This included firing patriot missiles and sending an F-16 fighter jet to shoot down the drone, all of which proved to be unsuccessful. Because of its small size and agility, the UAV stayed in Israeli airspace for apparently half an hour, which must have seemed like an eternity to the IDF.

Well, the story just got more interesting.

According to Arie Egozi who writes for the reputable aviation magazine Flight Global, Israeli military sources now suggest that the UAV was probably:

a Searcher 2 designed by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) which was being operated by Russian forces deployed within Syria.

So it was one of our own UAVs which we sold to Russia. So that also means that the Russians are most probably using Israeli made UAVs in their campaign to defend Iran and Hezbollah’s ally Bashar Al Assad in Syria! These spy drones were sold to Russia in 2010 as part pf a $400 million arms package, well before the Syrian civil war started, but as history has shown, you never know where your weapons end up at.

#Syria opposition (esp #ISIS) also starving Syrians

We all know about the brutal siege imposed by the Syrian regime and its Hezbollah ally against the residents of the Syrian city of Madaya. Today, there were new reports that another 16 people have starved to death in that city.

This is a crime, which is also being committed by the anti-Syrian regime groups, including ISIS.

According to the Associated Press, the following places in Syria are also under siege, by the anti- Assad forces:

Fouaa and Kfarya: Two Shiite villages in the northern province of Idlib with a combined population of around 20,000. The villages have been blockaded by rebels for more than a year. Pro-government fighters recently evacuated from the villages describe desperate conditions there with scarce food and medicine, saying some residents are eating grass to survive and undergoing surgery without anesthesia….

This is in addition to:

Deir el-Zour: An estimated 200,000 people living in government-held parts of this city in eastern Syria are besieged by the Islamic State group. The U.N. says most of the residents are women and children facing sharply deteriorating conditions due to the ban on all commercial or humanitarian access, as well as the inability of residents to move outside of the city…

So how many people in Syria are living under siege by the regime and the opposition? According to the UN:

400,000 people are besieged in 15 communities across Syria, roughly half of them in areas controlled by the Islamic State group”.

And what percentage of them can the UN reach ?

In 2014, the U.N. was able to deliver food to about five percent of people in besieged areas, while today estimates show the organization is reaching less than one percent.

A crime of terrible proportions being committed, right in front of our eyes by the Assad regime and Hezbollah, alongside other anti- regime terrorists, like ISIS.
