a great deal of what any arab state will say after being attacked is untrue (eg that the planes entered syrian airspace at all)

This map corroborates the description of Jamraya:
Whatever they’re saying, this is the best summary I’ve got so far:

  • Jan 30: Jamraya
  • May 3: Airport storage hangers
  • May 5: Maysaloun, al-Dimas, Jamraya

If you look at the map, the May 5 hits are all in a straight line, so it may just be a matter of missiles all intended for Jamraya falling short on a given trajectory:
Here is a typical construction of the trajectory, observe how Route 2 matches the line of hits. But of course they fired their missiles from inside Lebanese airspace, so the curved route trajectory up to the target is nonsense:

    “what any arab state will say” – Orientalist much?

    All right then, “any mideast state will say.” They all lie, and with the exception of the Jewish state (which is at least halfway good but of course has the hardest positions to justify) they are not good liars, viz:

    A top Iranian general said any arms Israel targeted in Syria did not come from Iran, in remarks published on the Revolutionary Guards website on Monday. Brig-Gen Masoud Jazayeri “denied Western and Israeli media reports that an Iranian weapons depot has been targeted in Syria,” the website reported. “The Syrian government does not need Iran’s military aid, and these sorts of reports are propaganda and psychological war,” added the deputy chief of the armed forces.</blockquote
