Israel on Alert for Potential Iranian Attack

Israel on Alert for Potential Iranian Attack

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.

Earlier this month, at least seven Iranian military personnel were killed in the missile strike on the T4 airfield, including Colonel Mehdi Dehghan, who led the drone unit.

On Tuesday morning, the IDF released aerial photos of Iranian bases in Syria showing the scope of Iran's military presence in the neighboring country. And Iran can increase financing to Hamas and ride the current wave of violent riots at the Israel-Gaza border to further distract the Israeli military in the south.

"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.

Iran wanted to install the Tor defense system in response to an Israeli airstrike on the T-4 base earlier this year, intelligence officials said. The target of the drone is still unclear. Tracking from Lebanon into Syria is another indication that the attack came from Israel. One aircraft was shot down by Syrian air defense systems on its return to Israel.

Despite the Israeli source's comment to the New York Times that the killing of Iranians at Tiyas was unprecedented for Israeli missions in Syria, a 2015 air strike there that Hezbollah blamed on Israel killed an Iranian general along with several of the Lebanese guerrillas. We have no other option.

This is while the airport is located in the Iranian capital, thousands of kilometers away from Syria. However, the Syrian reports did not mention the second target.

"This could prompt Iran, if it thought for a moment that it might not retaliate, that it now needs to", said Danny Yatom, a former Mossad director in an interview with Israel Army Radio.

Iran claims it is setting up bases in Syria to protect it from Israel, but Israel has no designs on Syria; it actually prefers the devil it knows there - Assad - over chaos. Putin and Rouhani share an interest in Syria quieting down now, and not becoming a financial drain or a military quagmire - by Suleimani turning it into an arena for a direct war with Israel.

But in general, Israel has stayed out of the Syrian war.

President Trump called Syrian leader Bashar Assad a "monster" on Friday night as he announced airstrikes to punish Assad for an apparent chemical weapons attack against Syrian civilians.

Seth J. Frantzman is the executive director of the Middle East Center for Reporting and Analysis and a writing fellow at Middle East Forum. It could be devastating for Israel's flourishing high-tech economy and for Iran's already collapsing currency. The attacks were insufficient, and did nothing to destabilize the Assad regime or to keep Iran out of Syria.

Israel has refused to confirm or deny responsibility for the strike in Syria.
