BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 P.M.) – Israel’s increased attacks in Syria are unlikely to force Iran to withdraw from the country, the Soufan Group said on Tuesday.

“Israeli strikes, even if increased in frequency or intensity, are unlikely to force Iran to withdraw from Syria, but are also unlikely to provoke a wider conflict,” the report stated.

“Iran’s political and military decision-makers, including leaders of the hardline Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), have always stopped short of actions that would lead to hostilities with more capable conventional powers such as Israel or the United States,” they added.

While Iran denies having any bases inside Syria, the Israeli Defense Forces claim their strikes are specifically targeting these installations and storages.

Most recently, the Israeli Defense Forces heavily bombarded the Damascus countryside and Al-Sweida, resulting in the destruction of several sites, including a radar base.

Con este acto, Israel está sirviendo de distracción o diría que está apoyando indirectamente a los terroristas en Siria.

IMHO, Iran is likely ending withdrawing not by itself but after Assad asks them to do so and he may also drop Hezbollah. Why? – Avoiding having to fight IDF while Turkey is menacing to invade. – He may also drop Iran for a normalisation of relations with USA+EU and moreover a kind of Marshall plan to rebuild Syria – Although I’ve never red about such a plan, Bibi could use of very serious aces in his hand which would make a true win-win agreement for both would Assad considers using Syrian neutrality as a bargain chip : a.
