Top US general visits Israel

2020/7/23米軍の戦闘機がシリア国内でイランの民間旅客機に異常接近し、旅客機の危険回避行動で乗客が負傷しています。
イスラエルからシリア国内へのミサイル攻撃が続いています。
そして米軍の共同参謀本部議長のマーク・ミレー将軍がイスラエルを訪問。どれもよくわからない点が残ります。

トランプは大統領選で劣勢となり、それをレーガン流強硬姿勢で逆転しようと目論む。イランの民間機が墜落していれば、一変に中東に火がつく。南シナ海、台湾海峡での軍事挑発も続いている。カリブ海のベネズエラ封鎖も。米国は世界戦争を始めかねない。日本がそのお先棒を担いでもネトウヨは賛成する?

「アメリカのために、絶対に謝罪しない。絶対に。事実がどうであろうと!」―パパ・ブッシュ。
これが1988年7月3日、ペルシャ湾で米艦がイラン旅客機を撃墜し、搭乗員290人全員を殺害した時の言葉。
絶対に、謝罪させろ!

Top US general visits Israel amid heightened border tension
JERUSALEM - America's top general made an unannounced visit to Israel on Friday for talks on "Iran and regional security challenges", Israel's army said as it confirmed a reinforced presence on its northern border.

General Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, held talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, alternate premier and Defence Minister Benny Gantz and Israel's army chief Aviv Kohavi.

Earlier on Friday, explosions on the Syrian side of the security fence in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights caused damage to a vehicle and a civilian building on the Israeli side, an army statement said.

The army said it was investigating the incident, and it was not immediately clear if there had been an attempted attack on Israeli positions from within Syria.

On Monday, five Iran-backed fighters were killed in an Israeli missile strike south of the Syrian capital Damascus, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The Iran-backed Lebanese Shiite militant group Hezbollah, an ally of the Syrian regime, said one of its fighters was among the dead.

Israel has launched hundreds of strikes in Syria since the start of the country's civil war in 2011, but rarely comments on such operations.

The Israeli army then announced an initial reinforcement of the northern border on Thursday, with Israeli media reporting the move was made in response to threats of retaliation from Hezbollah.

A further troop reinforcement on the northern border was announced on Friday, with the army saying it had "elevated its readiness against various potential enemy actions".

"The Israel Defence Forces holds the Lebanese Government responsible for all actions emanating from Lebanon," the statement said, without making reference to Hezbollah.

Gantz said Milley's visit underscored the close security ties between Washington and the Jewish state and warned Israel was "ready for any scenario and any threat".

"I do not suggest our enemies to test us," Gantz said in the statement.
