Israel Claims Syrian Strike

I've Been Thinking:
In a rare move, Israel accepted responsibility for air bombing Syria earlier this week.
The bombing was a response to the Iranian Al Quds Force launching of 20 missiles toward Israel. In the end, Israel struck and destroyed 50 sites, maybe even a few more.
Not all the targets were pre-arranged. According to Israeli Air Force sources, however, every site that launched a rocket was identified and destroyed. The targets included mobile operations like the S-200 rocket systems, command and control HQ's, radar and stocks of weapons.
As in the past, the explosions registered on the Richter Scale. This time they registered 2.6 in magnitude.
It is important to know that the elite Iranian force is embedded in Syrian camps.
Syrian fighters were trained in old Soviet-style strategy. In looking at the targets a specific Soviet-style pattern emerges. There are three lines and the first two lines have three clusters. Classic Russian defense pattern.
Of the 25 soldiers killed in the attack, most were Iranian. Israel has said that they were targeting equipment and not people - that makes sense.
This is now a game of cat and mouse. The game may still escalate.
