Israeli-Iranian confrontation in Syria

The US also killed scores of Iranian militiamen for attacking Kurdish fighters and it may be that Iran will join forces with Russian Federation to hit Israel.

For few hours, it appeared that a major showdown was about to be unleashed.

"We will continue to strike at every attempt to strike at us", he told his Cabinet. The Israeli Air Force (IAF) responded by engaging twelve targets, including three aerial defense batteries and four Iranian military targets, all of which were located in Syria.

The Washington Post has treated an Iranian attack against Israel with unwarranted skepticism, using the event to unfairly question the motives of the Israeli military. Tehran provides military support to Assad, but is also fortifying its own military presence in Syria, not far from Israel's northern border, and helping its Shiite ally, Hezbollah, build up forces outside the Israel-occupied Golan Heights. In the Israeli counterattack, IDF planes destroyed several key Syrian missile systems, including new SA-17 system just recently delivered by Russian Federation.

In Syria, the pro-government Al Watan newspaper said the country's air defences had "destroyed the myth of Israeli air superiority in the region". A move that would set Iran back significantly. On Saturday, Kurdish forces shot down a Turkish attack helicopter, the first officially confirmed loss of a Turkish aircraft over Syria.

The U.S. policy in Syria has always been vague and often inconsistent. And last week Russia and the Damascus regime condemned a US-led coalition airstrike against government loyal militias, which may have included Russian and Iranian advisers, near Deir Ezzor. In the meantime, millions of innocent Syrians had to leave their homes, and even their country, becoming refugees - without forgetting hundreds of thousands of those who lost their lives.

Israel has conducted more than 100 bombings and missile raids in Syria against storage sites for weapons and convoys supplying the Iranian-led forces, but without ever admitting it or taking responsibility. The United States, Israel and Turkey all have deepened their involvement, seeking to protect their interests in the new Syria order.

"Part of the remains of the UAV the #Iranians tried to sneak into Israel", Conricus tweeted Sunday, along with a photo of the drone's debris.

In its statement Saturday, Hezbollah said the "brave confrontation of the aggressing Israeli planes", including downing an F-16, ushers in a "new strategic phase" that puts an end to the violation of Syrian airspace and territories. The next showdown will be crucial.

In fact, while the Russians were carrying out airstrikes in support of the regime, Iran played an arguably more crucial role on the ground through its paramilitary proxies and the Revolutionary Guard.

"It's the first time since 1982 that the Syrian military has been able to shoot down an Israeli warplane, so the stakes are really high".

Israel also made it loud and clear that it had no intention of letting Iran get away with its ongoing war games that are meant to make the Jewish State out to be the aggressor - as the Islamic regime has done via its jihadist terror group, Hezbollah, in Syria and Lebanon, as well as amongst the Palestinians in Israel's West Bank and Gaza Strip. The two sides are edging closer to a cliffhanger faceoff. The risks in Russia's Syrian and overall Middle Eastern adventurism are mounting on the Iranian side of Putin's ledger.

The US secretary of defense has reiterated that they are militarily present in Syria to confront ISIS.
