“The Israeli bombardment in Syria is a new aggression against an Arab territory and the whole ummah (Muslim community),” Hamas Spokesman Hazem Qasem said in a statement, the Middle East Monirtor reported.
“The Israeli bullying is backed by the US administration and all Arab entities seeking normalization with the Israeli occupation.”
The Tel Aviv regime mostly keeps quiet about the attacks on Syrian territories that many view as knee-jerk reaction to Syrian government’s increasing success in confronting terrorism in country.
The Israeli attacks are thus considered an attempt to prop up foreign-backed Takfiri terrorist groups suffering heavy defeats against Syrian government forces.
Israel has also been a main supporter of terrorist groups that have opposed the government of President Bashar al-Assad since militancy erupted in Syria in March 2011.
