Memri Report: Syrian Moonshine

Memri Report

I didn't even know that the Israelis had a moon mission until some part of the spacecraft's flight went awry, giving rise to varied remarks in the Arab world, Syria's reaction being the most bizarre :
There were also bizarre reactions, like that of former Syrian MP Ahmad Shalash, who hinted that Syrian intelligence had caused the spacecraft to crash, apparently in retaliation for the airstrikes in Syria that are attributed to Israel. He wrote on his Facebook page: "An Israeli spacecraft has crashed on the moon. We have said previously that the operations of the Syrian intelligence [apparatuses] would surprise everyone and that the arena of conflict is unlimited. I do not want to say anything more explicit."
Yeah, I can understand that one wouldn't let too much of that intelligence get out.
