Iranian forces in Syria fire rockets at Israeli targets in Golan

Iranian forces in Syria shell Israeli army targets in Golan Heights: Israeli military

US President Donald Trump is likely to embolden Iran's hardliners with his decision to pull out of the nuclear deal.

"We know that comes from the al-Quds force", Conricus said, adding that the occupation army "takes very seriously this Iranian attack". The assault prompted an extensive Israel Air Force (IAF) attack on dozens of Iranian targets in Syria.

Assad spoke in an interview with the Greek Kathimerini newspaper published Thursday, before Israel carried out airstrikes in Syria in response to what it said was a cross-border rocket attack by Iranian forces.

Asked whether Israel had attacked near Damascus or scrambled communications there, an Israeli military spokeswoman said: "I have no comment on that at this time".

But a military source told the official Sana news agency that some missiles had hit a number of air defence battalions, radars and an ammunition depot.

Four of the rockets were intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome antimissile defense system, and the rest fell short of the Israeli-controlled territory, the military said.

On April 30, Israel was said to have struck government outposts in northern Syria, killing more than a dozen pro-government fighters, many of them Iranians.




The spokesman said that the Zionist military didn't want to escalate. In m, centers and facilities of Iranian intelligence services and its allies, and logistic bases, like that of enclosure of Al Kiswah, in south of capital Syria. "The Syrian regime will be held accountable for everything happening in its territory".

The Guardian reports that Israel is determined not to "permit Tehran to establish a permanent military presence in Syria, accusing Iran of moving drones and missiles into its Arab neighbour".

Oil in NY extended gains above $71 a barrel on speculation that "the conflict between Iran and Israel could eventually threaten supply across the Middle East", Takayuki Nogami, chief economist at state-backed Japan Oil, Gas & Metals National Corp., said by phone from Tokyo.

With the war winding down and the group able to refocus on its longtime foe, Israel, the border between the two countries may again heat up. Israel "had been expecting an Iranian response for some time".

After targeting Iranian units in Syria in retaliation, an Israel F-16 was shot down by Syrian anti-aircraft fire in one of the conflict's most notable escalations. It also deployed new defences and mobilised some reservist forces.

Netanyahu before leaving Israel for the visit said that "the meetings between us are always important and this one is especially so".
