Syrian War Report – August 22, 2016: Deep Crisis in Eastern Syria (South Front video)

by Scott Creighton

It would appear the recent Israeli bombing of several targets inside the Gaza Strip was provided a convenient pretext when an al Qaeda-linked Palestinian group fired a useless homemade bottle rocket toward Sderot. Turns out, this same group is fighting against the legitimate government of Syria on behalf of US and Israeli interests in the ongoing regime change operation in that country.

“The Israeli Air Force conducted up to 30 airstrikes over the Gaza Strip overnight on August 22 after a rocket struck the Israeli border-city of Sderot. A half dozen people were reportedly wounded in Gaza due to these the Israel Air Force’s air strikes. Reports say that Aknef Beit Al-Maqdis, a Palestinian militant group linked to Al-Qaeda, was responsible for the attack on Sderot. The organization responsible for the rocket attack in Sderot on Sunday was Aknef Beit Al-Maqdis, which is a Palestinian militant group with close ties to Al-Qaeda. Aknef Beit Al-Maqdis was recently involved in the Syrian war by attacking pro-government forces in the Yarmouk Camp District of southern Damascus.

No casualties were reported in the Israeli town.” South Front
