An analyst says the recent Israeli airstrikes on Syria show the Tel Aviv regime’s disregard for world public opinion.

Jim W. Dean, the managing editor of Veterans Today, said in an interview from Atlanta that the air raids demonstrate that the Israeli regime ‘doesn’t care about world public opinion.’
The analyst said that the timing of the airstrikes was well measured and carefully calculated by Israel. He said the airstrikes were conducted immediately after Damascus hosted a successful international conference on combating terrorism and extremism with Western, Arab and regional delegates.
The remarks come as the Syrian army said the recent airstrikes carried out by Tel Aviv on areas near the Syrian capital, Damascus, were aimed at helping the ISIL militants operating in the Arab country.
The Syrian army made the announcement in a statement on Sunday shortly after Israeli warplanes carried out two airstrikes against an area of the Damascus International Airport and another airport in the town of Dimas.
Commenting on Syria’s decision to take the Israeli violations to the United Nations, Dean said that the world body has “done very little to stop the Israeli aggressions” in recent years.
Syria has sent a letter to the UN to protest the latest Israeli airstrike on its soil, saying the move proves the regime’s direct support for the terrorists fighting against the government.
Dean also strongly criticized the US for influencing and preventing the international institutions from taking any action against the Israeli entity. The US has cast nearly 45 sole vetoes to stop condemnations of or measures against Israel.
Israel has carried out several airstrikes in Syria since the start of the crisis in the Arab country in 2011.
