Israeli Strikes In Syria Killed 19 Iranians This Week, War Monitor Says

Israeli Strikes In Syria Killed 19 Iranians This Week, War Monitor Says

Israel said it destroyed almost all of Iran's military infrastructure in the strikes which were launched in response to 20 missiles fired at the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

Tehran has accused Israel of trying to undermine Assad's government as it has consolidated major gains against anti-regime forces over the past year, with the help of Russian and Iranian military support. Israel fears that will allow Iran to more easily transfer weapons to Hezbollah, Lebanon's powerful Shiite guerrilla force, and reinforce the militant group's influence over the region.

Following the move, the United States reimplemented heavy sanctions against Iran, including on six individuals and three companies the administration says has channeled millions of dollars to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard's elite Qods Force.

Simmering tensions between Israel and Iran escalated this week following President Donald Trump's decision to pull the US out of the Iran nuclear deal on Tuesday.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: "The Iranians declare their intention to attack us".

On Friday, France urged Europeans to stand up to Trump over the nuclear deal and not act as "vassals", as the EU scrambles to find ways to save the accord and the billions of dollars in trade it unleashed.

In a lengthy statement Friday, the Iranian government warned that it would take "whatever reciprocal measures it deems expedient" if it is not fully compensated for the US withdrawal from the nuclear agreement as provided for in the accord.

During the rule of Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, Iran had close relations with Israel starting in the 1950s, including diplomatic representations and direct flights. The revolution's leader, Ayatollah Khomeini, declared Israel an "enemy of Islam" and cut all ties.

According to the newspaper's source, after Ryabkov gave the information to Iran an argument erupted between Iranian President Hassan Rohani and military commander Mohammad Bagheri, about the intention to fire missiles at Israel.

Israeli officials said this weekend that Israel's response to the Iranian attack has made it clear to Tehran that it does not possess the operational infrastructure it needs in Syria to successfully contend with IDF capabilities, according to a Friday report by Hadashot TV news.

Is the Mideast sliding to an all-encompassing, ruinous war?

.

No fewer than 11 Iranians were among those killed in unprecedented Israeli strikes on Syria this week, a monitor said Saturday.

Russia, which is also an ally of Assad, said on Thursday that Syria had shot down more than half of the missiles fired at it overnight by Israel.

In Yemen, the war in its fourth year is seen as a proxy between Saudi Arabia and Iran and can be a place for Tehran to retaliate and increase pressure.
