Russia Warned Iran Ahead of Israel's Extensive Strikes in Syria

14 May 2018

Israeli officials said this weekend that Israel's response to the Iranian attack has made it clear to Tehran that it does not possess the operational infrastructure it needs in Syria to successfully contend with IDF capabilities, according to a Friday report by Hadashot TV news.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the last group evacuated the suburbs Thursday night, bringing the total of those fighters and civilians who left the area since May 3 to a total of 8,400.

Following the move, the U.S. reimplemented heavy sanctions against Iran, including on six individuals and three companies the administration says has channeled millions of dollars to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard's elite Qods Force. Iran denied the accusation. The annexation has not be recognised by the worldwide community. The Observatory said at least 15 were killed in the strike, eight of them Iranians, including a member of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards.

"They need to remember the saying that if it rains on us, it'll storm on them".

Moncada also said there is "no possibility" that the May 20 election won't take place. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement Monday .

"I have established a basic principle: Whoever strikes us, we are going to strike them", Netanyahu said.

The Jewish state has long warned it will not accept Iran entrenching itself militarily in neighbouring Syria, where the Islamic Republic backs Assad's regime in the country's seven-year civil war.

Israeli forces have been blamed for a series of recent strikes inside Syria that have killed Iranians, though it has not acknowledged those raids.

The deal, signed between Iran and world powers, including Russian and the United States, had eased economic sanctions on Iran in return for the country reducing its nuclear programme. It also came just hours after President Donald Trump announced the withdrawal of the USA from the Iran nuclear deal.

All other signatories had sought to maintain the agreement.

Retired American four-star general and chairman of the Institute for the Studay of War Jack Keane was talking to Fox News about the febrile situation in the Middle East, as tensions ramp up following the USA's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.

Russia, which is also an ally of Assad, said on Thursday that Syria had shot down more than half of the missiles fired at it overnight by Israel. "They are trying to transfer forces and deadly weapons there with the explicit goal of attacking the state of Israel as part of their strategy to destroy the state of Israel". The global community's silence encourages Israel's aggression.

The scope of the attacks - which Israel called its largest in Syria since the 1973 Mideast war - raised the specter of a full-fledged war between Iran and Israel in Syria, a conflict that could potentially drag the militant Hezbollah and Lebanon into the mix with devastating effects, although both sides appeared to signal they wanted the confrontation to remain contained, at least for now.
