Israeli strike on Syria was carried out from Turkish base http://rt.com/news/israel-strike-syria-turkey-089/
Israel used a Turkish military base to launch one of its recent
airstrikes against Syria from the sea, a reliable source told RT. Israel
has been under scrutiny since last week, when it was reported to be
responsible for a July 5 depot attack in Latakia.News that Turkey assisted Israel in attacking another Muslim
state could result in serious turmoil for Ankara, once the
information is confirmed.
"Our source is telling us that Israeli planes left a military
base inside Turkey and approached Latakia from the sea to make
sure that they stayed out of Syrian airspace so that they cannot
become a legitimate target for the Syrian air force," RT's
Paula Slier reports.
In response, Turkey has denied that Israel has used its base to
Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu told the media that
existing reports of the incident are “absolutely wrong”
and those who spread such rumors are in “act of
betrayal.” “Turkey will neither be a part nor a partner of such
‘attacks.’ The ones who claim this want to damage Turkey’s power
and reputation,” he added.
Middle East expert and historian, Tariq Ali told RT that Israel continues to
attack Syria to get square with Hezbollah.“Hezbollah is like a red [rag to a] bull to Israelis and Israelis haven’t been able to wipe it out, though they tried many times. Now they are hoping they can do it by weakening or completely destroying the Syrian regime.Indirectly they are providing help to the rebels,” Ali said. “Israel is a country that considers itself above the law.”
