AMMAN (Reuters) - Syrian anti-aircraft defenses shot down missiles fired at the Syrian air base of Shayrat in Homs province late on Monday and another base northeast of the capital, Damascus, Syria's state television and pro-Iranian Hezbollah media said.
The IDF reportedly believe an attack by the Iranian army will be launched from one of the bases they control in allied Syria - and have warned Tehran against any action. "The occupying Zionist regime will, sooner or later, receive an appropriate response to its actions".
On April 10, Israel's Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said that he did not actually know who had launched the missiles at the Syrian airfield. Iran confirmed that several of its military personnel were killed.
Last week's missile strike was therefore the second go at the same target, but this time seemingly with intent to specifically hit the Iranians hard, as the source said. The target of the drone is still unclear.
The Iranian presence in Syria may pose the most hard and complicated threat to Israel in half a century.
Earlier the official Syrian media reported that Syrian air defense has shot down a rocket near the city of HOMS.
However, an Israeli security official seemed to acknowledge the leak was sanctioned, telling Reuters that it provided details about "the IRGC air force (which) the Israeli defence establishment sees as the entity that will try to attack Israel, based on Iranian threats to respond to the strike on T-4". We have no other option.
He stated: "The Iranian octopus is trying to strangle us and break our spirit".
Deputy Hezbollah leader Sheikh Naim Qassem echoed the threats from Tehran.
Yossi Kuperwasser, former director-general of Israel's Ministry of Strategic Affairs, said that conflict between the two countries is not necessarily inevitable.
The ongoing civil conflict in Syria, which on the surface is not our business, becomes our business and that of our allies when chemical warfare is unleashed on any civilian population. The Kremlin announced that the phone call covered various issues, including what it called the Israeli attack on the T-4 air base in Syria. But President Donald Trump ended the Central Intelligence Agency program previous year to try and extricate the US from the civil war, an effort that was again thrown into doubt when an alleged chemical attack this month prompted USA and allied airstrikes against Assad's forces.
Seth J. Frantzman is the executive director of the Middle East Center for Reporting and Analysis and a writing fellow at Middle East Forum. It could be devastating for Israel's flourishing high-tech economy and for Iran's already collapsing currency.
It all comes down to whether allowing the murderous Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, the terrorist group Hezbollah and their allies Iran and Russian Federation to take complete control is in our best interest, and hope it doesn't backfire like it did for President Obama, who tried to keep us from getting.
It probably would have been more appropriate if it said "Defined by Defense" because in the end it was more of the same. They won Game 1 by a 7-0 score and were 5-1 victors in Game 3. "Coots is playing 28 minutes a night for us right now".
