Israel weighs consequences of US-led tripartite attack on Syria

Israel weighs consequences of US-led tripartite attack on Syria

Haley denied the existence of any fixed date for the return of USA troops from Syria, insisting, "we haven't said that we're going to bring them home in six months".

Days before Western airstrikes against the Syrian regime last week, Israel is believed to have carried out its own attack on the regime's T4 airbase in central Syria on April 9. Israel per longstanding policy, has not publicly claimed responsibility.

Ali Shirazi Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's representative to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corp said that.

"This is the first time we saw Iran do something against Israel - not by proxy", Manelis continued.

Iranian-Israeli relations have always been highly tense, as Tehran doesn't recognize Israel's right to exist.

"The founders of modern Zionism did not say the attacks on the Jewish people would cease once we establish a Jewish state", Netanyahu told the Keren Hayesod-UIA World Conference in Jerusalem. We're economically successful as we've never been before.




Israel and Syria are bitter enemies sharing a tense border.

Israel released satellite images yesterday of Iranian bases in Syria, a clear warning to its old enemy as both are drawn deeper into the Syrian conflict.

Israel also fears that Russian Federation may arm the Syrian air force with more sophisticated air defense systems that could weaken Israel's ability to strike, Lisnyansky noted.

A day earlier, just hours after the Western coalition struck the military targets in Syria, the Israeli army released a statement saying the drone was an armed one meant to carry out an attack in Israel.

The Israeli military attempted to distance itself from the comments and "disputed the characterization and accuracy of the raid" by the Israeli source, Friedman said.

Israel has warned that Iran's Revolutionary Guard may be planning an air attack in retaliation for a suspected Israeli strike which killed seven Iranians at an airbase in Syria earlier this month.
