According to top Israeli defense sources, this war, if it takes place, must be completely different from the last one.

MESOP NEWS FOCUS : Should Turkey Officially Designate ISIS a Terrorist Organization?
By Uzay Bulut, March 20, 2017 – Uzay Bulut is a Turkish journalist. She covers Turkish politics, political Islam, and religious minorities in Turkey and the Middle East. –
BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 429, March 20, 2017 – Israel – EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Turkey – notwithstanding its official denials – has shown itself extremely reluctant to designate the Islamic State (ISIS) a terrorist organization, and that reluctance has hampered efforts to bring ISIS suspects to justice. Ankara has frozen the assets of ISIS but continues to stop short of officially labeling it a terrorist group. In view of the fact that ISIS has used Turkish territory as a transit route into Syria and Iraq and has placed sleeper cells in dozens of Turkish cities, Ankara would be well advised to designate the group a terrorist organization.

MESOP NEWS : IRAN – MEHR ALS ISIS IST DIE GRÖSSTE GEFAHR IM MITTLEREN OSTEN !
Israel droht Syrien mit Vernichtung von Fla-Systemen
RUSSIA TODAY – 19 March 2017 – Israels Verteidigungsminister Avigdor Lieberman hat am Sonntag Syrien gedroht, dessen Flugabwehrsysteme zu vernichten, sollte die Armee von Baschar al-Assad israelische Kampfflugzeuge unter Beschuss nehmen. „Nächstes Mal, wenn die Syrer ihre Fla-Systeme gegen unsere Flugzeuge einsetzen werden, werden wir sie ohne Zögerung zerstören“, erklärte der Politiker. In der Nacht zum 17. März hatte das syrische Militärkommando mitgeteilt, ein israelisches Kampfflugzeug abgeschossen zu haben.
Nach israelischer Darstellung attackierten die Kampfjets in der Nacht zum Freitag einen Fahrzeugkonvoi, der Waffen für die Hisbollah transportierte. Die syrische Armee erklärte, dass ihre Flugabwehr einen der vier israelischen Kampfjets, die in den syrischen Luftraum eingedrungen waren, abgeschossen hätte. Das israelische Militärkommando dementierte das entschieden. Nach Angaben der Zeitung Haaretz war das der schwerwiegendste Vorfall seit dem Beginn des bewaffneten Konfliktes in Syrien im Jahr 2011. www.mesop.de
