Syria: Israel Will Face 'More Surprises' If They Attack Again

Syria: Israel Will Face 'More Surprises' If They Attack Again

An Israeli AH-64 Apache was credited with downing the Iranian drone. And finally, Israel launched an extensive strike that focused on Syrian air defenses and Iranian forces in Syria.

The secretary said that the USA played no role in the events between Israel and Iran on Saturday.

The official added that the aircraft had targeted a Syrian army base in the central region of the country. Following which, military experts had analyzed the footage released by the Israeli Defence Force (IDF) on Saturday night and said that the Iranian drone was called Saeqeh (Thunderbolt) whose design was based off a United States aerial vehicle. Israel said Iran would be held responsible for its outcome. The Assad regime, in this fragile situation, is also trying to avoid reaching direct confrontation with Israel and trying to keep Iranian interests at bay. Most notable is the heave damage the Israeli military was able to inflict on Iranian locations, given the Iranians seemed to believe Israel was unaware of them. Gen. Ronen Manelis, said in a statement. "Whoever is responsible for this incident is the one who will pay the price".

"[Even though] no Syrian in his right mind would side with Israel against his native Syria, [there are] millions of Syrians lining up with the blue devils [Israel] against the fascist sectarian [Assad] regime that has surpassed all the monsters on earth in killing Syrians", an anonymous Syrian asserted, according to Breitbart News.

"This is not the time for talk, it's time for action..." More importantly for Israel, Iran is also a key player in Lebanon. "Iran's military presence in Syria was based on the invitation of the Syrian government", according to Velayati. "Those should leave Syria who are there without the permission of the Syrian legal government", Velayati was quoted as saying by ISNA. Israel's defense system alarms in northern Israel were supposedly triggered after a reconnaissance drone encroached on Israeli airspace, leading the Israeli air force to attack.

"We will continue to strike at every attempt to strike at us", Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared.

Israel has mostly stayed out of the prolonged fighting in Syria, wary of being drawn into a war in which almost all the parties are hostile toward it.

"The al-Watan commentary stressed that Israelis are panicked by the shooting down of the plane".

Since then, there have been no further clashes among Iran, Syria and Israel. The failure of the Obama administration to follow up on its warning to the Assad regime over the use of chemical weapons and barrel bombs against the civilian population, has weakened the USA position in the region.


Abandoning arms shipments and support for Hezbollah would be a major blow to the common goal of enabling a Lebanese fighting force to withstand a near-inevitable conflict with Israel.

Iran's expanding clout during Syria's almost seven-year-long war, including deployments of Iran-backed forces near the Golan frontier, has raised alarm in Israel, which has said it would act against any threat from its regional arch-enemy Tehran. That battle was triggered when Israel shot down an Iranian-made UAV that had breached Israeli airspace and ended with an IDF F-16I being shot down. In the Israeli counterattack, IDF planes destroyed several key Syrian missile systems, including new SA-17 system just recently delivered by Russian Federation. Both pilots survived, though one was seriously wounded. The pilots are now hospitalized and it's unclear at the time of this writing what led to the downing of the IAF plane.

Early on Saturday morning, reportedly eight Israeli warplanes were deployed to target positions inside Syria. The military said significant damage was caused. Notably, Hezbollah declared the downing of the Israeli jet marked the start of a "new strategic phase". All the Israeli jets in those sorties returned home safely.

It thought this war had made Syria incapable of confronting attacks. The Observatory said the raids resulted in casualties, but didn't specify. Damascus claimed of hitting more than one Israeli aircraft. "If Syrians confirm it [the report on downing the drone], we will confirm it, as well", Salami said. If Tehran withdraws its open hands from Hezbollah it would fragment the "Shia crescent" of influence even further than the above example and potentially allow the unbalanced equilibrium between Israeli defence force (IDF) & Hezbollah to grow in favour of the IDF. "I think it's good that our enemies learn and understand these capabilities". Iranian and its controlled Shiite militias, especially Hezbollah, are slowly encroaching on Israel's Golan Heights. Across its borders, Israel now faces Iranian commandos and allied forces, including the Lebanese Shiite Hezbollah movement and some of the most powerful Iraqi Shiite militias that challenged USA troops in Iraq a decade ago.

In May 2014, Iran said it had built a copy of the drone after reverse engineering most of its technology, citing the Tasnim News Agency.

Israel has shot down several drones that previously tried to infiltrate its territory from Syria.

"It is interesting that everywhere we find trouble in the Middle East, you find the same thing behind it".
