Iran and Israel's Syrian shadow war laid bare

Iran and Israel's Syrian shadow war laid bare”

According to reports, Netanyahu informed Putin of impending strikes on Iranian military targets in Syria, and at least passively received Putin's blessing. Iranian action that would draw a punishing Israeli response now, before they have nuclear weapons, would probably not be in their interest.

Earlier on Monday, Nasrallah's deputy, Sheikh Naim Qassem, said the attack had affirmed "the balance of deterrence" between Israel and its adversaries.

President Trump's decision means the United States will be re-imposing trade sanctions that will affect companies seeking to trade with Iran since the deal was put into place.

However, Etzion views the Israeli strategy to directly confront Iran in Syria as one fraught with risk.

Iran, the main state sponsor of terror, exports harmful missiles and helps terrorist proxies and militias like Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Taliban.

Israel had tried to disguise the scale of the attack, he said. On Syria. And on Iran in Syria.

Rabinovich also noted that Russia's presence in Syria is not concerning for Tel Aviv, unlike that of Iran's.

In 70 years of colonising Palestine and denying the Palestinian people the most fundamental of human rights, including their right of return, Israel has respected neither worldwide law nor the sovereignty of its neighbours.The Zionist state is still occupying the Syrian Golan Heights, in violation of global law, and its intention toremain and continue colonising this part of Syria is clear.

Ahead of last week's attack, Iran had vowed to respond to an Israeli attack which it said had killed seven of its military personnel at a Syrian air base in April.

"We hope the global community will come together to fix the deal, for the sake of all people in the Middle East and beyond".

Russia and Israel established several channels of communication to prevent accidental clashes soon after the start of the Russian intervention in Syria in late 2015, including a hot line between the Israeli military command in Tel Aviv and Russia's airbase at Khmeimim. Right now, every government has an opportunity to insist that we give priority and due respect to established and recognised worldwide law and agreements.

"Israel has proven without a doubt that Iran has lied repeatedly over the years about its nuclear program". "What it means is that when Israel calculates its strategy of rolling back Iran from Syria, the risk is that Russian Federation will not only not side with Israel, but will ultimately curtail the effort". The Israelis do not want a wider war with Iran.

"Netanyahu's presentation demonstrates the incredible Israeli intelligence capabilities which prove that the Iranian aspirations for nuclear abilities are still in the works, including funding", Avital Leibovich, director of the American Jewish Committee (AJC) in Israel, told The Jerusalem Post via email.

In Zalzberg's opinion, Russian Federation is trying to "shape the rules of the game" between the two adversaries.

The one most agreeable to the White House would be regime change in Tehran: the association of leading figures in the administration like the national security adviser, John Bolton, with exiled Iranian opposition groups like the Mojahedin-e-Khalq may have be encouraging delusions about the likelihood of this happening.
