TEL AVIV, Occupied Palestine – Provided last night’s strike was indeed carried out by Israel, the timing would be significant and unlikely to be coincidental.
Yesterday several Israeli figures, including the former head of Military Intel had implicitly suggested Israel should respond to the suspected chemical attack.
Of course, this likely isn’t the actual point, but Israel could be using the uncertainty created by the prospect of a possible US strike, to mitigate the risk involved in striking deep inside Syria.
And, last but not least, show that these strikes are possible, and that Western countries refusing to take a stand are doing so for lack of will rather than lack of means.
