Israel Sets Red Line for Russia Amid Rising Fear of War

Israel Sets Red Line for Russia Amid Rising Fear of War

They could apply real pressure on the Syrian leader, and if they turned on him, it could potentially change the trajectory of the war and even threaten his hold on power. Moreover, the immediate Iranian threat may not affect Israel at all.

Israel does not acknowledge or confirm the attack in Syria at the T4 base near the city of Homs.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said after the U.S., British, and French strikes in Syria his country will continue "to move against Iran in Syria".

Israel has accused Iran of sending an armed drone into its airspace in February from the T4 airbase in Syria, to which it responded by bombing the base twice, reportedly.

Israeli media published images of the text message calling up the reservists which said "emergency call up has been activated". Israel said last week that the aircraft was loaded with explosives and ready to carry out an attack against it.

"The regime is oppressing you and when this regime disappears off the face of the earth then our two peoples can live together once more in coexistence", Netanyahu said to the Iranian people, according to Israel's Haaretz newspaper. "This opened a new period".

The number of confrontations with Iran in Syria have led to a kind of routine in Israel.

So now the whole neighborhood is holding its breath: Will there be a Round 3? Iran also plans to provide the missiles to Hezbollah in Lebanon.

As of Tuesday morning, several Israeli websites received details of wide-ranging information about the Iranian Revolutionary Guards' aerial systems in Syria, whose officers and advisers were killed in the recent attack.

An American attack won't target T-4, which is controlled by Iran, but more likely a base housing the Syrian planes that conducted the chemical attack.

'Israel will react strongly to any Iranian action from inside Syria, ' senior IDF source told Sky News according to JPost.

Both Russia and the Syrian regime accused Israel of being behind the strike but the Israeli military has refused to confirm or deny its involvement, as is its practice with almost all operations in Syria.

It is not easy to do this task, because of the strong relationship between the Democratic Union Party (which is intellectually linked to the PKK and operates under the Ocalan ideology) and the "Islamic Republic of Iran".

But what is Iran doing in Syria?

Tension on Israel's northern borders remains very high in light of the American attack against the Assad chemical weapons facilities last Friday and the expectation of Iranian retaliation for a separate strike attributed to Israel. Suleimani's Quds Force now more or less controls - through proxies - four Arab capitals: Damascus, Beirut, Baghdad and Sana. But Suleimani may be overplaying his hand. That concern is surely one reason Iran, for all its fist-shaking - has not retaliated - yet. Syria and Russian Federation have blamed Israel for an airstrike on April 9 against the T-4 airbase in Syria, which Iran is said to use.

Israel also has said that Iranians should stay away from the Jordanian border and that Syria should not become a permanent home to Iranian forces. "We think that withdrawing the forces from Syria is a mistake". The rial has lost one-third of its value just this year, the story noted.

It would seem, in other words, that Suleimani is at odds with both Russian President Vladimir Putin and Rouhani of Iran.
