Iran targets Israeli bases across Syrian frontier

Iran targets Israeli bases across Syrian frontier

Israel captured the Golan Heights in the 1967 war, annexing it in 1981 in a move not recognised internationally. But for months, it has repeatedly said it will not accept a permanent Iranian military presence in Syria.

It is a conflict that needs to be averted and the time to do it is now. "But it also revealed a weakness: Those rockets don't have any brains".

Israel has conducted scores of strikes on Iran and its allies inside Syria, rarely acknowledging them publicly.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor reported that dozens of rockets were fired from Syria towards the Israeli-occupied Golan, without saying they were fired by Iranian forces.

"This just further shows that the Iranian regime can not be trusted". Syria's state news agency SANA said Israeli missiles hit air defense positions, radar stations and a weapons warehouse, but claimed most incoming rockets were intercepted. In addition, the auto was destroyed, which was carried out the launching of missiles into Israel.

Some of the rockets were deflected by Israel's Iron Dome missile defense system, while others caused damage to Israeli military facilities. "Our reaction was a effect", the Israeli leader said in a video posted on social media.

"It's in Israel's interest to keep the conflict in Syria, where Israel has an overwhelming advantage", Indyk said. Those strikes killed at least seven Iranians. Iran will now feel the need to react, and push back.

In the short-term, there is grounds to hope that this will not escalate into an all-out war.

In February, Israel shot down what it said was an armed Iranian drone that entered Israeli airspace.

During the Syrian civil war, the buffer zone between Israeli and Syrian forces has led United Nations observer forces to reconsider the mission "due to safety issues", stemming from the Quneitra clashes between the Syrian regime forces and the opposition fighters, according to an article on Wikipedia. Israel's response was massive.

Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman noted that: "No-one wants an escalation - certainly no-one wants war". "We will not let Iran use Syria as a base to attack us from".

She was rushed to the hospital, where she recovered away from the public eye. "Thanks so much for all the well wishes everybody... Alicia Keys did a rendition of it, so I did her version and I hope I made Prince very proud.

The stakes here are huge. Iran is not likely to give up on its goals in Syria after expending so much effort in the civil war there.

Iran has condemned Israel's recent attack on Syria, calling it an attempt by the main supporter of Syrian terrorist groups to retaliate their many defeats against the government of Syrian President Bashar as-Assad.

External powers are not well placed to influence either side.

The Israelis also attacked two elite army divisions loyal to the Assad regime, the 4th Armored Division, the Republican Guard, and 60th Brigade and hit Kesweh, a high security area that houses key regime and Iranian intelligence units.

"Israel doesn't want another Hezbollah inside Syria, it doesn't want another Lebanon", said Andrew J. Tabler, a Syria scholar at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

Analysts say that Trump's decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal has emboldened Tehran, which feels it has less to lose if it enters into conflict with USA allies.

In such circumstances, Tehran will see Israel's actions as an additional indicator of U.S. intent.

Trump knows that his political base in the USA loathes the idea of American involvement in yet another war in the Middle East.

Pro-Iranian factions have in the past attacked Israeli tourists overseas or Jewish organisations, notably in Latin America.

Iranian media described the Israeli attack as "unprecedented", but there was no official Iranian comment on Israel's claims.
