The escalation between Iran and Israel has everything to do with Trump

"As long as Iran has breached the status quo in the region and has (yet to) evacuate its troops and missiles, any state in the region, including Israel, is entitled to defend itself by destroying the sources of danger", Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed bin Mohammed Al Khalifa said in Arabic on the social media website. It is reported by the human rights organization Syrian Observatory for human rights (SOHR), reports the online edition of the Chronicle.info with reference to the Correspondent. Their approval is not always can be officially confirmed.

It seems, though, that having a stable Syria as a neighbor would be more important to Israel than any short-term goal achieved in striking Iranian forces - who, for better or worse, are fighting ISIS and other extremists groups. Israeli cities would be hit, as might strategic targets in Iran.

"The holy system of the Islamic Republic will step up its missile capabilities day by day so that Israel, this occupying regime, will become sleepless and the nightmare will constantly haunt it that if it does anything foolish, we will raze Tel Aviv and Haifa to the ground", he said, according to state television.

"It makes Israel engage significant forces in direct counteraction to the Syrian air defense", says the military expert adding that in the confrontation with Israel the Syrian air defense has several weak points that prevent it from a more effective response to the attacks. "They were intercepted by the Iron Dome system, and the rest fell short inside Syrian territory".

Liberman also told Israelis they should not let the threat from Syria deter them from visiting the north.

"The Iranians tried to attack Israel's sovereign territory", Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman charged.

He said that it was a mistake to think that Thursday morning's attacks on the Iranian bases had completely solved the problem, but that the army was ready for anything and would continue to do whatever necessary to ensure Israel is secure.

"We did not cross Iran's borders", he said.

Russia has no plans now to deliver advanced S-300 air-defense systems to Syria, President Vladimir Putin's aide on military cooperation said, an apparent reversal following talks between the Russian leader and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. "I hope we've finished this episode and everyone understood".

Israel has repeatedly signaled alarm over Iran's presence in Syria, saying Iran is attempting to establish a permanent military presence in Syria to attack Israel as the civil war there winds down. Israel fired back on Thursday, hitting dozens of Iranian targets in Syria.
