Israel attacked Syria again on April 21, after two errant rockets landed in an open area in the illegally Israel-occupied Golan, causing no damage.
The Golan Heights has a strong al-Qaeda presence. Syria’s al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra, one of the most powerful forces in the opposition, seized the city of Quneitra in the Golan in 2014.
You would not know this from the media coverage of the attack, however.
Reports by AFP and in the Israeli media simply used the generic term “rebel,” and did not mention Jabhat al-Nusra is the major “rebel” force in the illegally Israel-occupied Syrian territory.
The attack recalls Israel’s support for Syrian al-Qaeda, which even mainstream media outlets have acknowledged.
