IDF publishes images of destroyed Iranian military sites in Syria

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had said that Iran had "crossed a red line" and Israel's action "was a consequence" of that.

"The Israelis believe they are facing a nightmare scenario right now where Iran is on the march in Syria with the intention to start a war that will end Israel".

He added: "Whoever hurts us, we will hurt them sevenfold, and whoever is preparing to hurt us, we will act to hit them first".

In a statement carried by Syria's state news agency, an unidentified Syrian Foreign Ministry official described Israel's overnight attacks as a "new phase of aggression".

Pointing to the civil war in Syria, Merkel said that numerous global conflicts today were flaring on the doorstep of Europe. The IDF was prepared, intercepting the rockets with Iron Dome missile-defense system, and then going on the offensive in a massive wave of firepower. There were no casualties.

Iran on Friday condemned Israel's air raids in Syria, saying they had been launched on "invented pretexts".

The Iranian leadership has made no secret of its intention to establish a grand, radical Shi'ite empire across the Middle East, stretching across Iraq, Syria and Lebanon-and beyond.

Ties ebbed with the outbreak of the Syrian war in 2011, when the Hamas leadership-in-exile left Syria amid President Bashar Assad's crackdown on Sunni Muslim rebels, many with ideologies similar to those of the Muslim Brotherhood, the parent movement of Hamas. The U.S., Israel and the Saudis could decide it's time to knock them completely out of the game and make a combined strike against their nuclear facilities and military.

"We saw it was very clear what the Iranians were doing, attacking Israel from Syrian soil", he said.

The exchange of fire was the most direct confrontation between the two Middle East rivals after years of stand-off in Syria and came one day after Donald Trump pulled the United States out of the Iran nuclear agreement and reimposed sanctions on the regime.

"Throw the Iranians, Qassem Soleimani and the Quds forces out of your country!"

The suspected Israeli strike came after the IDF gave orders to open public bomb shelters in the Golan Heights after reports of "irregular Iranian movements" inside Syria. No Israeli injuries or damage was reported. Iran will now feel the need to react, and push back.

The sanctions issue has added to tensions between the United States and its European allies over the nuclear deal.

White House National Security Adviser John Bolton advocated military action against Iran on multiple occasions before going to work for President Trump recently. Rockets fired from Syria were aimed only at targets in the occupied Golan Heights and not inside Israel's internationally recognized borders. Pulling out of the JCPOA can be seen as the moment when the USA signalled to Iran that the gloves had come off, but the battle was already brewing.

Qasemi criticized what he called "the silence of countries and global institutions in the face of such acts and aggressive behavior by the Zionist regime".

Iran's foreign ministry blamed the Israeli air strikes in Syria on "fabricated and baseless excuses", according to the AP.

Iran has been threatening to unleash its proxies against Israel for some time now and the Israelis always take that seriously.
