BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:40 P.M.) – The Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani told his Russian counterpart Nikolai Patrushev that if Israel strikes Syria again, his nation will issue a ‘regrettable’ reaction.

“The Zionist regime is seeking to stabilize crisis in Syria and has taken measures in direct support of terrorist groups and for hitting the Syrian army and the forces fighting against terrorism,” Shamkhani said, as quoted by Tansim News Agency.

Shamkhani’s comments come just ten days after the Israeli Air Force carried out a devastating attack in western Syria.

During the Israeli attack, the Syrian military fired an S-200 air defense missile at the enemy F-16; however, it struck a Russian IL-20 reconnaissance aircraft.

Russia found that the Israeli F-16 used the IL-20 as cover, which ultimately resulted in its downing off the coast of Latakia.

More seriously, IDF should consider this and directly strike in Iran! Since MBS told ’em he was OK to let IDF use the Saudi airspace… Seriously, if some creep publicly bragged he’ll burn my house and kill my family b4 killing me, was known to work at it and was sending hired thugs to harass me, I wouldn’t only go after the thugs in a t*t-for-tat. I’d go after the one who are… Read more »

Douchebag you are truly losing it with that armchair general phase of yours. You go like “Strike everywheeere !! strike everyooone !!” 15 years. 15 god d**n years that they’ve been feeding us this bullshit empty threat about their ability and intention to strike deep inside Iran “tomorrow”. And so far, NOTHING. Talk about a fuckin broken record , geez.But 10 times more air defense density and brand new C4I intefrated and multi-ayered systems comprised of both imported (S-300 VM and Tor-m1s) and homegrown derivatives of FM-90 (Herz-9 short range) Buk-M2 (Raad mid-range), and Standard Missiles mixed with chinese AESA… Read more »
