Iran expected to attack Israel following Lebanon's May 6 election

Iran expected to attack Israel following Lebanon's May 6 election”

Military and political sources have told Russian Federation and the United States that Tel Aviv will target Iran directly if Tehran acts on its threat to respond to Israel's alleged Sunday night attack on military bases in Syria, Haaretz reports.

The surveillance organisation "Syrian Observatory for Human Rights" said today that a military camp in human province was attacked last night by missiles.

"The others are foreign fighters, a vast majority of them Iranians", he told AFP. Russia's RT Arabic said the strike was carried out by U.S. and United Kingdom forces based in Jordan, which fired nine ballistic missiles at the Syrian positions.

All this is beginning to look rather like a coordinated Israeli-American operation to limit Iran's military activities in Syria - simultaneously conveying the message to Moscow that Russia's green light for Iran to establish itself militarily in Syria is not acceptable in Jerusalem and Washington. "Israel will not allow the opening of a northern front in Syria".

"We remain deeply concerned about Iran's unsafe escalation of threats to Israel and the region and Iran's ambition to dominate the Middle East remains", Pompeo said after a almost two-hour meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

"We will maintain total freedom of action".

Israel's largely successful ploy till now has been to play both sides of the Syrian war - assisting its United States patron in keeping Iran on the back foot while cooperating with a Russian military committed to stabilising the Syrian government.

Hundreds of emergency jet engine inspections ordered world-wide

"A new attack with missiles targeted military positions in the provinces of Hama and Aleppo", respectively in the centre and north of the country, Sana reported, citing a military source.

Michael Oren, Israel's deputy minister for public diplomacy, laid out four "red lines" that would prompt his country to strike Iranian targets in neighboring Syria.

Military commentator of walla AVI Issacharov writes: "the Israeli message struck a bunker in Tehran, a military confrontation acquired an open character".

It is not known who carried out the airstrikes, though several news outlets pointed the finger at Israel, noting that Israel refused to comment on the attacks.

"The Syrians must announce the statistics as they are responsible". He did not specifically refer to the latest attack in Syria. It has been the focus of a massive bombardment and intense fighting since the Syrian army recaptured eastern Ghouta earlier in April.

The sprawling semi-rural area east of Damascus had been home to thousands of armed Islamist and jihadist fighters, who were besieged for years but sporadically fired rockets and mortar rounds on the capital.

"They appear to have broken a seal of sorts", Schanzer said of Israel, adding that it may see a "window" now that Syria's air defenses have reportedly been beaten down.
