Israel 'Struck Advanced Iranian Air-defense System' in Syria

IDF accidentally summons reservists for emergency duty on Independence Day Holiday Glitch: Israeli Army Reservists Get Mistaken Independence Day Call Up

According to Daniel, Israel was bracing for a possible Iranian missile salvo or armed drone assault from Syria.

The release of the images came at a time when Iran was preparing for an anticipated retaliation to Israel strikes against Syria's T-4 airbase in Homs last week.

Israel has refused to confirm or deny responsibility for the strike in Syria.

The Israel Defense Forces on Thursday morning, Israel's Independence Day, accidentally sent out an automated emergency call-up of Israeli army reservists, before quickly canceling the summons.

Israeli military officials say an Iranian drone that crossed the border in February - triggering an Israeli raid in Syria and resulting in the downing of one of its jets - was "armed with explosives and was tasked to attack Israel", but they have not provided evidence to support this claim. "But it's very unsafe because Israel could end up going to war with Russian Federation".

This is while the airport is located in the Iranian capital, thousands of kilometers away from Syria.

All that has now changed.

A boom, a whoosh of air and then terror on Flight 1380
It is always destructive when a blade comes loose, although it is unusual for uncontained engine failures to be deadly, he said . In March, European regulators made an announcement requiring inspections of the engines within nine months of April 2.

The Sayqal base in Syria. On the contrary, Iran may already be laying the groundwork for a permanent presence on its Syrian client's territory.

These are courageous words.

Khazen also alludes to the warming of relations between Tel Aviv and Washington, which is at its best in decades since Trump was elected president as both view Iran as a common enemy and a threat to their strategic interests. Coupled with Hezbollah's growing strength, and the weekly Hamas-inspired protests in Gaza, Israel faces the specter of a three-front war for the first time since 1967.

This sentiment was also relayed by MP Elias Al-Khazen, a political science professor at the American University of Beirut, who told Annahar that "a direct confrontation between Israel and Iran is a legitimate concern", with the decisive factor being the "fate of the nuclear agreement". President Donald Trump is keeping troops in the area to keep from losing Syria to Russian Federation or Iran.

"Iranian media gave extensive coverage to the Israeli attack on T-4 last week". However, many major USA news outlets have failed to provide readers with the update. Hezbollah would certainly retaliate on behalf of Iran, and the Iranians would certainly fire a missile barrage at Israel as well.

Israel has fought half a dozen wars with Arab countries since its establishment in 1948, battled two Palestinian uprisings and endured dozens of deadly militant attacks. The Syrian Kurds are closely allied with the U.S. Yet Turkey regards them as terrorists and fears they are working with Turkey's own restive Kurds. Trump, on the other hand, would not recognize a strategy if it ran him over - he is completely transactional. European states are still dealing with the large influx of Syrian refugees and want to see the war ended, the region stabilized and the refugee issue brought under control.

However, given the potency of Israel's military and intelligence services, Kuperwasser believes Iran will likely proceed with caution.
