Israeli ministers said on Sunday morning that Tel Aviv claimed responsibility for an overnight air raid in Syria alleging that it had prevented an Iranian drone strike on Israel and to send a message to Tehran that it should not feel “safe anywhere”.

“We are taking responsibility for the attack in Syria and are saying that Iran should feel it is not safe anywhere. Iran is working day and night all over the Middle East in order to build an empire that has set for itself the goal of destroying Israel”, Israeli Environmental Protection Minister Ze’ev Elkin told Channel 13 TV news.

Likewise, Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz told Kan public radio that Israel publicly acknowledged the airstrike to demonstrate that Iran “has no immunity anywhere”: “The [Syria] action was intended to cut the head off the snake”.

Meanwhile, the Iranian Labour News Agency (ILNA) has cited a senior revolutionary guards commander as denying that Iranian targets were hit in the Israeli raid.

“This is a lie and not true. […] Israel and the United States do not have the power to attack Iran’s various centres, and our (military) advisory centres have not been harmed”, Revolutionary Guards Maj. Gen. Mohsen Rezaei said, per ILNA.

The remarks by the two ministers echoed a statement by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is also defence minister, issued just minutes after the Israeli military announced the attack.

“Iran has no immunity anywhere. Our forces operate in every sector against the Iranian aggression. I have directed that our forces be prepared for any scenario. We will continue to take determined and responsible action against Iran and its proxies for the security of Israel”, he said.

The confirmation of the strike followed a SANA report on Saturday that Syria’s air defences were repelling “enemy targets” over Damascus, with most of them supposedly being shot down.

Shortly thereafter, the Israel Defence Forces tweeted that Israeli warplanes had hit alleged “Iranian Quds Force operatives and Shiite Militia targets” in Syria to thwart what it claimed was a looming “large-scale” drone attack on Israel.

In the aftermath of the strikes, IDF spokesperson Lt. Gen. Jonathan Conricus said forces had been put on high alert near the Syrian border.

“The IDF is prepared to continue defending the State of Israel against any attempts to harm it and holds Iran and the Syrian regime directly responsible for the thwarted attack”, he said.

Israel previously admitted to conducting hundreds of airstrikes against Syria in the past few year, claiming that the raids were aimed at countering an alleged Iranian military presence in the country. While Damascus has strongly condemned the strikes as a violation of its sovereignty, Tehran has on numerous occasions emphasised that its presence in Syria has only been limited to sending advisers to help fight terrorism.

The guys were on the roof of their van many km away filming it and someone found it suspect and called the cops. +++ “and the nutcase Israeli prime minister stating that the destruction of the W T C was good for Israel?” => It happened several years later and he actually stated that in the end, it had profited Israel as they… Read more »

and they were also all Saudis,and the Bushes allowed a single Saudi airplane fly out of US territory during the lockdown straight back home in Salafi land since the Ladens had deep business ties with them that they certainly didnt want put into plain light,you eternal simpleton.

Well, the Zionist criminals can gloat because Iran has so far failed to hit back, even when they killed Iranian nuclear scientists, generals in Syria and now bomb Iranian positions at will. The lack of response will only embolden the Zionists, who in reality are weaker than a spiders web.

Iran is not safe? The Zionists have stolen the Palestinian land and got themselves into a situation where they will always have to be fighting their neigbours. Who is not safe?

+++ “Iran is not safe?” => you have 5x more chances to be killed onboard a car on Iranian roads than at shooting rockets from Gaza into Israel. Statistically, you also have as much chances ending executed by the Mulahs’ regime or tortured to death/”disappeared” by their Basij being an Iranian as to be killed by IDF while being a Hamas or PIJ member. +++ “The Zionists have stolen the Palestinian land” => Wrong. Arab-Palestine is Jordan. Israel is Jewish Palestine. Another point : starting 1948, the Arab-League expelled 1.2 million of non-Israeli Jews and stole 200,000km² of real estate… Read more »

Most often such irresponsible loose foot in the mouth statements from Ministers from Israel who are not from Military or Defense Ministry will become a grinding stone around Israel’s neck! You guys are unnecessarily provoking & prodding Iran who has definitely shown a lot of restraint knowing fully well that if it tries to Militarily retaliate US & UK will come in support of Israel. This doesn’t mean Iran is any easy pushover. Every one has a threshold and their own strength and what matters more is what Israel is trying to achieve with such aggression.

Well the thing is before 2017 Israel never attacked so-called Iranian targets in Syria. Suddenly in 2017 Iran became a danger and Israel started their bombing campaign. In 2017, after the liberation of Aleppo city, it was clear the Syrian government would win the war. So it obviously looks like revenge taking and the wish
of creating a huge war hoping to continue its destruction of the region.

+++ “Well the thing is before 2017 Israel never attacked so-called Iranian targets in Syria.” => Wrong, they were already intercepting Iranian transfers of weapons to Hezbollah. +++ “Suddenly in 2017 Iran became a danger” => It already was so before, but they were too busy at fighting cockroaches rather than at what they are now : preparing a 2 fronts invasion of Israel, one from Lebanon, one from Golan Heights. +++ “In 2017, after the liberation of Aleppo city, it was clear the Syrian government would win the war.
