Atwan in Ra’y al-Yawm: first time in half century Palestinian resistance movement allowed to attack Israel from Syrian lands

Translated today by our from the website Ra’y al-Yawm.

Author: Editor Abd-al-Bari Atwan:

“…If Israeli accusations, through Binyamin Netanyahu himself, that the Islamic Jihad was behind the firing of those rockets are true, this would be a very important development. This is the first time in about half a century that a Palestinian resistance movement is allowed to carry out a military operation against Israeli targets from Syrian territory. It is also the first time since Ramadan [October] 1973 war that missiles fired from Syria land in the occupied Golan and the Galilee Panhandle…”
