The situation in Syria continues to heat up. Overnight there was a major attack on Syrian military positions in Latakia, Northern Syria. Israeli jets engaged Syrian positions alleged to be an Iranian arms depot and research facility for chemical weapons. This attack was also supported by 28 tomahawk cruise missiles allegedly launched from British and French ships in the Mediterranean.
During this attack, a Russian reconnaissance plane was mistakenly shot down by Syrian air defences that were trying to hit the Israeli planes. Putin is very angry and blaming Israel for the loss of the 15 Russian service men.
Previously Putin brokered a deal with Turkey to set a 20 KM buffer zone in Idlib starting near mid October as well as the removal of the more radical militants from the area. Will this work in staying off further escalation?
For more details you can watch the video reports below from Israeli News live and a Middle East Update from Pastor J.D. Farag. I also had another report from Amir Tsarfati but it was removed by YouTube for a so called violation of policy!
