A quite extraordinary situation has developed in the Middle East, where Israel can carry out airstrikes on what used to be a great power, Syria, and it can do so with impunity.
Israel has made no comment on the air strike, which reportedly targeted a missile delivery, but then it never does. Six times now, by my count so far this year, Israel has carried out air strikes inside Syria.
They're all on similar targets, sophisticated weapons such as surface-to-air missiles made in Russia, that Israel thinks are in the process of being delivered to the Assad regime's great ally, the Lebanon-based militia group Hizbollah.
There has also been no comment from the Assad regime on this air strike, certainly no kind of military response. The Assad regime of course has its hands full fighting the civil war.
