Secretary of the Iranian Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani said on Tuesday at a meeting with Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Muallem that Israel will receive a decisive response if it continues attacks in Syria.

“In case of continuation of such actions, specific measures will be taken to contain it and to respond decisively and symmetrically, giving an exemplary lesson to the lying and criminal rulers of Israel,” Shamkhani said, as quoted by the IRNA news agency.

Muallem, in turn, said that the Syrian government was committed to ensuring the security of the Iranian forces in the country.

Last month, Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps second-in-command Brig. Gen. Hossein Salami said in a television address that Iran’s strategy was to wipe “the Zionist regime” of Israel off the political map.

Relations between Israel and Iran have been very strained recently. Israel has been opposing Iran’s military presence in Syria, fearing Tehran might gain increased influence in the region. Iran has stressed that in only sends advisers at the request of the Syrian government.

Such loose Iranian talk just creates danger for Syria.

“Iran’s strategy was to wipe “the Zionist regime” of Israel off the political map.”
=> The only thing it’ll manage is wiping the Iranian regime itself by giving a try at it.
IMHO, they’ll just do as they always do : cheat’n’retreat… I should say shït’n’retreat… as usual…
They’d better stop with their fantasy to wipe out Israel : they really don’t seem to get that Damocles’ sword is already over their heads… How foolish they are!

Errr, didn’t Iran’s ambassador said that Iran had no bases in Syria, only military counsellors embedded into Syrian army? So, why wanting to retaliate big league if actually, IDF didn’t struck Iranian bases with IRGC militiamen getting killed? It’s just like on Jan.24th when Iran’s nuclear chief acknowledged he cheated JCPOA under Khamenei’s order and Khamenei said he knew westerners would pull out of JCPOA, but what happened was that once it became clear to CIA that Iran was cheating, Yankees pulled out! Now, since Iranian officials long time claimed before the UN having no bases in Syria, not being… Read more »

“just consider in how many countries IRGC or Hezbollah did terrorist attacks. Likely more than 40” Just consider how many countries Israel has unilaterally attacked and flattened so far, killing innocent children near DAILY to this very day, and how many people have lost someone close to their hearts in the past 60 years ? probably in the magnitude of hundreds of thousands, with tens of thousands dead after all the imposed wars and the occupation. If you take all Arab countries combined, namely Syria, Lebanon, not to mention Palestine itself, it goes through the roof. So many massacres, so… Read more »

@Gryz Woah, slow clap to that. I was planning to cut through that Zionist trolling dog @Daeshbags-Sux like a knife through butter. However, it seems that you’ve beat me to it. Well Done 🙂 😉

Thanks man, but I really do not deserve that much credit, to be fair. This guy is a troll by the book, and his “views” are just copy pasted mash-ups of the good old propaganda of the hasbara machine, with all the classical selective omission, outright falsifications and gross distorsion of basic historical facts and figures of the whole Israeli-Arab conflict to permanently shine a positive light of his idols. The guy often does not have accurate data, or a deep understanding of the issues he takes such solid stances on, nor does he really comprehend the true middle-eastern balance… Read more »

That’s why Iranian threaten retaliations 😉 Nevertheless… Dog that barks doesn’t bites 😉 The only thing I still don’t get is why IDF isn’t fücking up Hezbollah’s economics by spraying Round’Up all over marijuana and poppies fields in the Beka’a valley? Defoliant-spraying technology is well known, Yanks massively used this in Vietnam, some S-America countries also spray coca fields when they can locate these (not EZ considering all the jungles around). IDF should also target Hezb’s Captagon/Viagra labs too. Due to economical hardship, Iran already cut about the third of their funding to Hezb. If IDF ruins their drugs production… Read more »
