BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:35 P.M.) – The Israeli military is preparing itself for a potential attack by the Iranian forces inside Syria, Israeli Army Radio said on Tuesday, as reported by I24 News.

Citing unnamed sources, Israeli Army Radio said the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) were preparing their air defenses for a potential cruise missile attack from the Iranian forces that are currently present inside Syria.

In particular, the report claimed Israel was focusing its defense capabilities on harder to detect, low-flying cruise missiles and drone strikes – unlike high-arcing ballistic missiles that are easier to intercept.

Furthermore, they said this alleged Iranian missile threat is due to Israel’s attacks on their forces inside both Iraq and Syria.

Iran has yet to retaliate for the string of attacks launched by the Israeli forces in Iraq’s Salaheddine Governorate and Syria’s Damascus and Deir Ezzor governorates.

However, Hezbollah did retaliate against the IDF following an attack on their media center in the southern suburbs of Beirut in September.

Since then, the Israeli military has not been as active inside Syria and Iraq, prompting many to believe the Russian Armed Forces were playing a role in preventing these attacks.

Of course they are. A preemptive strike by Israel should prevent any attack that wasn’t going to happen from happening which will prove the legitimacy of that strike. Anyway I thought Russia had told Israel too keep out so looks like you all better get into your bunkers and stay there until it is all over ,

Indeed Peter, Israel has to justify the unjustified existence of its undeclared and totally illegal nuclear arsenal, the biggest US-funded middle-eastern army, as much as its utter contempt for the sovereignty of every single of its neighbors and their peoples’ lives, based on a non-existing imminent threat of annihilation from a non-existant combined Arab surprise assault aided by a non-existant Iranian first strike that will never happen. As you say, ever since the country with the bigger stick has formally told them to basically shut up and stay in their place, nothing such will happen anymore in the foreseeable future,… Read more »
