Israel – Iran on the brink of war

Russia linked Israel’s airstrikes against Iranian military positions in Syria with the US leaving the Iran nuclear deal.

The Israeli army on May 10 accused Iran of firing rockets at its military positions in the Golan Heights, forcing Tel-Aviv to retaliate with air strikes.

This is the first time Israel has directly accused Iran of attacking it from Syrian territory since the Syrian civil war broke out in 2011, according to al Jazeera.

Afterwards, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) responded by airstrikes on about 50 Iranian military targets across Syria, including training, intelligence gathering and logistics facilities,

Israeli missiles fired into Syria early on the morning of May 10.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman also boasted of air strikes that hit most of Iran’s infrastructure in Syria.

The above clash also made Lebanon worried after the country’s military accused Israeli fighter jets of violating their airspace.

In an effort to prevent this terrible scenario, French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel on May 10 spoke up to call for de-escalation of tensions in the Middle East region.

US and Israel provoked?

The latest Israeli airstrike mentioned above killed at least 5 Syrian soldiers and 18 gunmen, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).

However, both the Syrian army and the Russian side confirmed that Syria’s air defense systems blocked `the majority` of Israeli missiles.

Chairman of the Russian State Duma Foreign Affairs Committee Leonid Slutsky linked Israel’s airstrikes against Iranian military positions in Syria with the US leaving the Iran nuclear agreement two days earlier.

Right before US President Donald Trump announced his intention to withdraw from the Iran nuclear agreement on May 8, the IDF said it had discovered `unusual activities of Iranian forces in Syria` and opened bomb shelters.

A few hours after Mr. Trump’s announcement, Syrian media reported that the country’s air defense system shot down two Israeli missiles.
