Israel hints it could hit Iran's 'air force' in Syria

It made that clear in 2013, when it held back from military action and, more importantly, said that even if it had intervened it would only have been in a limited way. Russia, Iran and Syria were quick to accuse Israel of the attack as well.

Israel also has said that Iranians should stay away from the Jordanian border and that Syria should not become a permanent home to Iranian forces. In retrospection, it may have been Israel's strategic mistake to allow Iran to create the threat in Lebanon but it certainly amplifies the current dilemma in dealing with Iran's similar ambitions in Syria. Yielding to Iran's political posturing will only assist Tehran in further solidifying its presence in Syria to the point of no return.

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". Clearly, Israel can not afford Syria turning into another base of operation serving Iranian strategic plans against Israel.

Israel's warning to Russian Federation, and the possibility that Russian Federation will anyway supply Syria with advanced air defenses, has heightened concerns that the region, and perhaps the world, is on the brink of a major all-out war.

An unnamed a commander from the regional military alliance supporting the Assad regime told the Reuters news agency hours later that a cyber attack had triggered a "false alarm" that resulted in a number of air defense missiles being fired, and there had been no attack on Syria.

The Syrian air defenses intercepted all the missiles, said the reports, adding that the source of the missile strike was not yet known. In fact, it is very unlikely that the war would still be raging if it were not for the interference of Iran. Israel on Friday, April 13, announced that the drone had been loaded with explosives and was on an attack mission, not a mission for reconnaissance.

He stated: "The Iranian octopus is trying to strangle us and break our spirit".

Israel is understood to have launched strikes over 100 times in Syria since 2012.

Undoubtedly Israel coordinated this attack with the United States military. A moderate Syrian force could play a significant role as a bulwark against Iran's entrenchment.

At the end of past year, the people of Iran took to the streets to protest against the cruel mullahs and the corruption that spans the whole leadership of the country.

Following the strike, Ali Akbar Velayati, the top aid to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, warned that Israel "should be waiting for a powerful response" to the strike on the airfield, saying "it will not remain unanswered".

Tehran is supportive of the group Hezbollah in the war-torn nation.
