The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) has deployed its defence systems and are “on high alert for an attack,” after identifying what it said was “irregular activity of Iranian forces in Syria”.

The IDF has also ordered local authorities in the Golan Heights, controlled by Israel, to “unlock and ready (bomb) shelters.”

Earlier this week, reports circulated in the media that Iran was preparing response to alleged Israeli attacks on Iranian facilities in Syria.

Relations between Tel Aviv and Tehran has been tense over the past time, with Israel viewing Iranian activities in Syria as a threat to national security. Israel has repeatedly claimed that Iran was allegedly building a permanent military base south of country’s capital of Damascus.

February was marked by a major escalation in the conflict between Israel and Iran in Syria when the Israeli army said its helicopter intercepted an Iranian drone launched from Syria and that the Israeli Air Force (IAF) struck Iranian targets in Syria.

The Israeli moves prompted fire from Syrian air defense systems, resulting in an Israeli F-16 fighter jet being hit. In the second wave of the attack, the Israeli forces struck 12 targets in Syria, including Syrian air defense batteries and Iranian military facilities, the country’s Defense Forces (IDF) said.

Israel lost the war against Syria and Lebanon and to take revenge they are now trying to provoke Iran and Hezbollah to start a war. The same with the Iranian nuclear accord: On orders from Israel Trump is taking revenge punishing Iran for losing the war. Khamenei was right: You never can trust the US. Ask the natives of North America, Nguyen Van Thieu, Ngo Din Diem, Marcos, the Sjah of Iran and Moebarak and many many more. It’s classic US policy. They speak with forked tongue. Maybe the EU and the rest should sidestep the US dollar from now… Read more »
