Israeli Response to Syrian Missile Attack Described as ‘Biblical’

Israel and Syria reportedly scuffled again over the weekend.

And at least one news outlet correctly pointed out that the tit-for-tat had biblical connotations.

From Conservative Tribune:

According to the Israeli news outlet Haaretz, another instance of Israeli intervention in Syria is thought to have occurred in the early morning hours of Friday, with Israeli aircraft reportedly launching a strike on a location near the Damascus International Airport.

Those strike was believed to be in response to unconfirmed reports that a Syrian aerial defense position had fired a surface-to-air missile at an Israeli aircraft, though it was unclear if that aircraft had been hit, or if had been an actual jet or an unmanned drone.

Regardless, the rules of warfare in the neighborhood haven’t changed since the days of the Old Testament: “An eye for an eye” required a weaponized Israeli response.
