イランのシリア残留が決まりイスラエルは狂乱状態: ずくなしの冷や水



The Israeli military has admitted that over the past 18 months it carried out more than 200 strikes in Syria, which it claims destroyed hundreds of alleged Iranian targets, local media report.
Accusing Tehran of constants attempts to gain a foothold in Syria, and potentially deploy tens of thousands of soldiers on the ground, the IDF on Tuesday said that it carried out attacks against at least 202 “Iranian targets” on its neighbor’s soil. Overall, 792 bombs and missiles were launched at Syria since 2017, the IDF said on Tuesday during a special briefing with military correspondents.
Israel admits 200+ strikes against ‘Iranian targets’ in Syria over 18 months
Summarizing the achievements over the past year, after Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot issued a “highly confidential” report to the political echelon about the “Competence and Preparedness of the IDF,” the military stressed that Iran is still determined to smuggle in weapons and establish air bases as well as intelligence capabilities in Syria.
The IDF also noted that Iran’s proxy, Hezbollah, remains a threat but currently has no capabilities to launch precision strikes against Israel. The army said that Iraq is more important to Iran than Lebanon where Israel’s arch enemy is being accused of arming Shia militias. The IDF also said it is aware of the fact that missiles are being transferred from Iran to Iraq and from there to Syria.
Israel rarely acknowledges carrying out raids in Syria, but Damascus repeatedly accused the Jewish state of violating its sovereignty and aiding the terrorists. On Tuesday, Syrian air defense systems responded to an attack on targets located in the Hama and Latakia provinces. The raid, which Sana news agency pinned on Israel, left one dead and at least four others wounded.
Previously, Tel Aviv was accused of striking targets in other parts of Syria, including the outskirts of Damascus and on the border with the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Syrian Prime Minister Imad al-Khamis in a meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called for Iran's cooperation in the reconstruction of Syria in regions cleansed of terrorist groups.
"We will pursue reconstruction in partnership and cooperation with the friendly states, specially the Islamic Republic of Iran and Russia and their private companies," Khamis said during the meeting in Damascus on Monday.

Zarif traveled to Damascus on Monday for talks with high-ranking Syrian officials.
Last week, Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami had traveled to Damascus and signed an agreement for defense cooperation between the two countries with his Syrian counterpart.

Iran to supply Syria with new warplane and domestic-made S-300: report
BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:15 A.M.) – Iran is preparing to supply the Syrian Armed Forces with their new domestically-made warplane and S-300 missile system, a military source in Damascus told Al-Masdar News last night.

According to the source, the Iranians are planning to supply the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) with their newest warplane, which is dubbed the “Kowsar.”

Furthermore, the Iranian military is planned to supply Syria with their own version of the S-300 missile defense system.

No date was given regarding this transfer.

The Iranian military receive their first batch of S-300 missile defense systems last year after they purchased them from the Russian government.

Iran often produces their own domestically-made military equipment that is modeled after U.S. and Russian manufactured weapons; this has been a concern for Israel, as they fear these weapons will be transferred to their allies like Hezbollah.

New Israeli missiles could target places further away than Lebanon – analyst to RT
Israel is developing a new missile system, capable of striking anywhere across the Middle East. It’s not about targeting terrorists, analyst Ammar Waqqaf told RT, but about maintaining superiority.
The system, developed by state-owned Israel Military Industries (IMI) will be ready in “a few years,” and will “allow precise hits...on every point in the region,” Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Monday.

The announcement is about maintaining “Israeli superiority and ability to hit anywhere in the Middle East” Waqqaf, managing director of British think tank Gnosos, told RT. “This is basically a psychological sort of advantage that they try to keep as much as possible.”

According to Lieberman, the project will cost “hundreds of millions of shekels,” and is, on the surface, a reaction to recent rocket attacks from Hezbollah forces in Lebanon, and from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Quds Force in Syria. At present, Israel does respond to these attacks but is often limited to using imprecise artillery fire, or airstrikes, which are costly and more dangerous than launching a missile from inside Israeli territory.

“Israel always tries to impose and maintain its deterrence in the region. So far over the past decade, they’ve focused on developing their air force,” said Waqqaf.

However, Russian anti-aircraft weapons have made maintaining this deterrence more difficult in recent years. Iran uses the Russian-made S-300 anti-air missile system, as do Egypt and Syria. The newer S-400 system protects Russian forces in Syria; and the governments of Iraq and Qatar have expressed interest in acquiring it for themselves. Meanwhile, Turkey is pressing ahead with its decision to buy the S-400, despite objections from the United States.

Rather than countering poorly-armed Hezbollah militants across the Lebanese border, the new Israeli missiles are designed to counter more sophisticated adversaries.

“Hezbollah could be targeted easily and significantly in a large measure by artillery,” Waqqaf explained. “Hezbollah doesn’t have sophisticated air defense systems.”

“This would be more targeted at or against forces that are far away from Israel, where a clear line of aerial bombardment needs to be possible, with sophisticated air defenses and so on.”

“Israel already has surface-to-surface missile capability, but this announcement signals their intent to overcome the new countermeasures purchased or being purchased by their current or possible future opponents,” he continued. “This is about more far away places than Lebanon.”

Iraqi official denies Iran moved missiles to Iraq
BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – An Iraqi official has denied the Reuters report regarding the alleged movement of ballistic missiles to the Hashd Al-Sha’abi forces in Iraq, Al-Hayat reported.
“Such reports are not precise. There is a mistake in what has been said. The missiles are produced by Hashd al-Shaabi and they were unveiled during ceremonies to celebrate victory over the ISIL,” an unnamed Iraqi official told the Arabic-language al-Hayat newspaper on Saturday.
He added that the range of the missiles is no more than 50km, stressing that they are no threat to the neighbors.
The Iraqi official voiced concern that such allegations could pave the ground for targeting certain Iraqi groups or figures who opposed the US deployment in Iraq.
A report by Reuters on Friday claimed that ballistic missiles had been transferred from Iran to Iraq over the past few months to threaten Iran’s enemies in the region.

Iran moves missiles to Iraq amid turmoil with West
BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:20 P.M.) – Iran has reportedly moved its ballistic missiles to their on the ground allies in Iraq, the Reuters News Agency reported today.

According to the Reuters report, Iran sent these missiles to its allies in response to the U.S.’ increased sanctions against the Persian Gulf nation.
Reuters said that three Iranian officials told them of this recent move; it was also confirmed by two western intelligent sources.

“The logic was to have a backup plan if Iran was attacked,” one senior Iranian official told Reuters. “The number of missiles is not high, just a couple of dozen, but it can be increased if necessary.”

The Iraqi government and military both declined to comment.

Iran Deplores Netanyahu's "Shameless" Threats
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif condemned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's "shameless" threats against Iran.

"Iran, a country without nuclear weapons, is threatened with atomic annihilation by a warmonger standing next to an actual nuclear weapons factory. Beyond shameless in the gall," Zarif wrote on his twitter page on Thursday.

Speaking at the nuclear research facility in Dimona during a ceremony, Netanyahu noted that Israel remains ready to counter throats from adversaries both near and far.

Israel has never acknowledged possessing nuclear weapons, instead maintaining a policy of “ambiguity.” Western reports, however, have put the size of Israel’s nuclear arsenal in the hundreds of weapons.

The UN nuclear watchdog IAEA has on several occasions verified peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program under the JCPOA, to which Iran has remained committed since it went into force.

Zarif on Wednesday underlined his country's insistence on the necessity for the creation of a Nuclear Weapon Free Zone in the region, describing Israel as an obstacle.

"As world marks Int'l Day against Nuclear Tests, let's remember that only nuclear bombs in our region belong to Israel and the US; the former a habitual aggressor and the latter the sole user of nukes," Zarif wrote on his twitter page.

"Let's also remember that Iran has called for Nuclear Weapon Free Zone since 1974," he underscored.
