Syria strikes back as Israel discovers its warplanes aren't invincible

The escalation is the latest in an epic struggle building between Iran, which is trying to turn Syria into a forward Iranian military base, and Israel, which is determined to prevent this from happening at all costs. The Machiavellian Putin does not want the Iranian-Israeli confrontation to screw up his domination over Syria. Israel's campaign has generally taken place away from the media spotlight. In fact, Israel is an accomplice to many bombings in Syria, arming of the Jihadist terror groups in the Golan region, provided medical aid to terror groups and many other factors that are coming to light and igniting the Syria-Israel tension.

The head of this axis is the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Describing Bashar al-Assad regime as "a front for Iran and Hezbollah", she also criticized Tehran for having the irresponsible behavior for the Middle East. The Israeli moves prompted a response fire from the Syrian air defense systems. The most effective way to prevent a future escalation with potentially catastrophic consequences for the region is to dismantle any Iranian presence along Israel's border altogether. But Russia's influence has proven to be limited, while Iran is determined to spread its hegemony.

The European Union's top diplomat on Friday raised the prospect of collecting money for rebuilding Syria but only if fighting abates and Russian Federation makes sure its ally, President Bashar al-Assad engages in the stalled United Nations peace talks.

The US supports Israel's actions - but some say it should do more.

A decade ago, Russian President Vladimir Putin chose the West's annual security conference in Munich to say "what I really think" about the U.S. Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu plans to use this week's event for a similarly blunt wake-up call about the threat of war with Iran. These are two red lines Jerusalem has every intention of enforcing.

Russian officials defend Iran's military presence in Syria as legitimate.

He suggested instead that elements fighting the Assad regime launched the drone in order to trigger an Israeli attack on the government forces. "What this means is that Iran is right on Israel's border". And all the while, Iran remains a nuclear-threshold state that threatens regional and global security. Israel has shrugged these statements off.

Practical tips on how to avoid the scam
It is necessary to remember that too good to be true offers with great probability is a trap for unsuspecting newcomers. Representatives of a bogus casino will be in every way to evade concrete answers, misleading you.

Netanyahu, in condemning the attack, said the Iranian drone validates his warnings about Iran's aggression. The organization is much stronger, far better armed and is able to carry out offensive maneuvers after gaining extensive battlefield experience against jihadists in Syria.

While large areas of the country have stabilized, giving the impression of a war that is winding down, violence has exploded in other areas with renewed ferocity, killing and injuring hundreds of people in a new and unpredictable spiral of bloodshed.

As the conflict has become more regionalised and neighbouring states intervene directly rather than through proxies, the entanglements of the conflict have grown ever deeper.

Fortunately, all sides seemed to accept a rapid de-escalation.

Israel must strike Syria hard to decisively destroy Hezbollah before its forces redeploy to southern Lebanon to revert to guerrilla warfare. Together with the Quds force, the extraterritorial wing of Iran's notorious Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, and local Shiite militia, Hezbollah played a central role in the survival of the regime.

That situation changed over the past weekend when an Iranian drone entered Israeli airspace from Syria. This gave the Assad regime an opportunity to set a new precedent by firing on Israeli jets over Israeli territory, downing an Israeli F-16, and provoking further Israeli Air Force strikes on Syrian targets. But Moscow now appears to be prioritizing ties with Iran, which is emerging as its strategic partner.

But is a strategy of inflicting direct harm on Iran and Iranians the most effective? Russian combat aircraft and surface-to-air missile units are in Syria to back Assad. The number of casualties suffered by Syria or Iranian Quds forces remains unknown.

Throughout the ongoing Syrian conflict, news surfaced that Iran was forcing Afghan refugees and immigrants to fight on behalf of Assad in Syria. Did the Russian advisers participate in the air defense?
