Eleven Iranians among dead in Israel strikes on Syria Thursday

Eleven Iranians among dead in Israel strikes on Syria Thursday

Speaking at a security conference Thursday morning, Lieberman had this warning for the Iranians. Israel said Iran has been deploying its allied militias in the area.

The erosion of Iran's long-range missile capacity comes as part of Israel's ongoing effort to prevent Iran from acquiring a permanent military presence in Syria, according to Haaretz. Russia's 2015 intervention in Syria changed the strategic balance decisively in favour of Bashar al-Assad's regime.

Even before Mr. Trump announced the pullout, non-American businesses were wary about making any financial commitments in Iran, fearful of such an outcome.

"For now, we're not talking about any deliveries of new modern (air defense) systems", Izvestia cited Kozhin as saying when asked about the possibility of supplying Syria with S-300s.

It does seem that Israel might be seeking this opportunity to subvert the upper hand recently gained by Iranian and Syrian forces against rebel strongholds around Damascus. But the Israeli Air Force has had to be wary of Russia's ultramodern air-defence umbrella of jets and missiles over Syrian air space.

In an interview published on Friday, Kozhin said that Russian Federation was not delivering the S-300 air defense missile systems to Syria and no talks had been underway on their delivery thus far.

Israel said its Thursday strikes were in response to a barrage of Iranian rockets on its positions in the occupied Golan Heights, the most serious military confrontation between the two bitter enemies to date.

"It's nearly as though [Israel] is saying, 'Now that that announcement is made and we know that Iran is supporting Hezbollah ... that it's fair game to hit Iran inside Syria, '" Alvi told ThinkProgress, referring to the largely Shia Lebanese force present in Syria and fighting alongside Iran and Russian Federation in support of Assad's troops.

The comments come against the backdrop of a visit to Moscow by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this week.

Iranian targets have repeatedly been hit inside Syria in recent weeks in attacks thought to have been conducted by Israel. Without Russia's support, Iran's position in Syria is precarious.

A leading Iranian cleric said Friday that Tel Aviv and Haifa will be destroyed if Israel behaves "foolishly", while also vowing Iran will ramp up missile development despite Western criticism. Iran's force of Shia militiamen from Iraq and Central Asia has been useful for controlling Syrian territory but would be little more than cannon fodder against Israel. No one on the Israeli side was reported to have been injured.
