Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu suggested to Iranian Quds Force Commander Qassem Soleimani that he should look into the state of “bases he is trying to establish in Syria” instead of “interfering in the [Israeli] elections.”

The response came after Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Jarida reported that Soleimani spoke of the need for a response to the Israeli air raid, as it would cause Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to fail in the forthcoming elections, citing Iranian sources.

“Instead of intervening in the elections, Soleimani should look at the state of the Iranian bases he is trying to establish in Syria,” Netanyahu tweeted in response, referring to recent strikes by Israel targeting alleged Iranian military infrastructure in Syria.

Instead of interfering in the elections, Soleimani would do well to check the state of the Iranian bases that he is trying to establish in Syria.

Our policy is clear and will not change: We are determined to prevent Iran from militarily entrenching itself in Syria against Israel.

On Sunday, the Israeli Air Force carried out a missile attack on alleged Iranian targets in Syria, including “military facilities of [Iranian unit] Quds Force, including weapons depots, mainly in the area of Damascus International Airport, Iranian intelligence centre, Iranian training camp” in response to a rocket fired at the Golan Heights.

Israel has consistently expressed concern over Iran’s alleged attempts to establish itself in Syria, including a permanent military presence in the Arab Republic.

Tehran, in turn, has repeatedly emphasized that it has only been providing military advisers to Syria to help the country fight against terrorism.

He is facing a political crisis and is bullshiting. The strikes by IDF only caused 5-7 people to die – all Syrian Army people. The Iranians own their casualties unlike the Zionist army wimps, and they also reply back decisively. Netanyahoo is hot air. Maybe he should find another tunnel and make a deal with Hizb’Allah and cross it to Lebanon due to his problems with Israel’s judiciary.

Actually, a dozen of IRGC died and IDF has never been into pushing body-count, in fact, they avoid fatalities as much as possible but will instead demolish your military potentials, just think about how they defeated agressors in 1967 or 1973. These mostly ended alive but unable to take any action, in other terms, defeated and humiliated…

Iran didn’t managed to win against Saddam in 8 years of war. Yanks ousted Saddam from power within 5 weeks.
f there was real judiciary in Iran, Khamenei would be hanged to the 1st street-light and would have deserved it.

How nice it would have been if Israel & Iran were just so close neighbors next to each other rather than showing all their love & affection to each other over in Syria.

How amusing! Zarqawi (ISIS founder) hid in Iran before being smuggled to Iraq by IRGC/Quds-Force.
Soleimani managed to have Iraqi Qaeda’s fanboys to ally with Ba’athists, just think that gen.al-Douri just left the alliance after the fall of Mosul and drew all the ISIS ‘blitzkrieg’ plans until then…
You’re in bed with the Abu bakr troll, even if you don’t know it!

Under Khomeini, the main arms provider to Iran was… Israel! Khomeini even ordered 45,000 Uzi SMGs. In fact, if Iran didn’t lost the war to Saddam, it’s thanks to Israel dismantling their F-4s and selling them to Iran as spare-parts and also setting up a missile industry to build reverse engineered MiM-23 Hawk etc… Either you’re poorly informed or you’re a freaking hypocrite! You Khamenei has never hidden the fact he was into ecumenism when it came to jihad! He’s supporting Hamas which itself backs al-Nusra and ISIS/Sinai Wilayat. Treason has no boundaries and Iran, as much as Turkey, is… Read more »

“It is narrated on the authority of Ibn ‘Umar (‘Abdullah b. ‘Umar) that the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him) observed: Verily Islam started as something strange and it would again revert (to its old position) of being strange just as it started, and it would recede between the two mosques just as the serpent crawls back into its hole.”
– Sahih Muslim Book 1 Hadith 271

And it’s on the good way, hopefully fore the future of mankind.
