Israel was NOT attacked; Israeli forces on Syrian Territory were Targeted
The Missile Attack on Israeli Forces in the Golan is Completely Legal
Israel’s Attack on Syria is Neither Legal nor Moral
Israel was NOT attacked last night! The missiles allegedly fired from Syria landed on Israeli military targets in the occupied Golan Heights where Israel is an illegal occupying power on Syrian territory. Armed resistance to occupation is both legal and moral.
The White House has condemned Iran’s “provocative rocket attacks from Syria against Israeli citizens” and expressed strong support for “Israel’s right to act in self-defense.”
But Israel has no “right” to be occupying the Golan Heights. The Syrian government, on the other hand, and forces allied with it, have the legal and moral right to attack Israeli forces on occupied Syrian territory.
