The Israeli military launched fighter aircraft against Syria today, firing multiple missiles at the T4 military base near Homs, Syria.
To their surprise, Syrian air defenses not only intercepted "most" of the air-launched missiles, but also "hit" an Israeli fighter jet, forcing it - and others -- to flee! There is no claim that any jet was actually shot down, but multiple sources confirm one was hit.
According to covert intelligence sources from non-US-government entities with whom I used to work during my time with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, the Israeli attack effort "completely failed."
"Somehow, the Syrians got tipped-off about the coming attack and they were ready when Israel tried to strike" one source told me.
Israel last attacked the T4 Base in April, and inflicted heavy damage on that base.
