Israel has right to self-defence

Israel has right to self-defence

Le Drian said that the 2015 agreement on Iran's nuclear activities remained in force despite the U.S. pulling out on Tuesday.

As such, with Israel reportedly eliminating most of Iran's military infrastructure in Syria in the airstrikes on Thursday, this could further strengthen Russia's concerns as it eliminates a potential future competitor in Syria.

Israel conducted its biggest raid inside Syria in at least 30 years, saying Iranian forces there fired a barrage of missiles at the Israeli-held section of the Golan Heights.

On Thursday, Israel accused Iran of firing rockets from Syria into the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, the first time that Iran has attacked Israel with rockets.

Iran's long-awaited retaliation finally came.

The sudden surge in the exchange of rockets Wednesday night - on the heels of Trump's exit from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action - hints that Iran has suspended its strategic restraint.

Amos Gilead, a retired senior Israeli defense official, said at a security conference in the coastal town of Herzliya that Iran's intentions in Syria meant a wider conflagration may only be a matter of time.

President Hassan Rouhani had said on Tuesday that Tehran would remain in the deal, provided its benefits stayed in force with its remaining signatories. But he is a moderate. Israel has warned it will not tolerate its archenemy Iran establishing a military presence on its doorstep. S-300s could have significantly complicated the Israeli strikes.

"Both Iran and Israel have assured us that there are no such intentions".

Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron, following a meeting in Aachen, Germany on Thursday, called for "level-headedness and de-escalation in the region".

Riad Hadi, an Iraqi army veteran, said Iraq will end up paying the price for Trump's withdrawal from the nuclear deal.

He told reporters he hoped sharing his story would "increase the pressure" on Australia to change its laws about assisted suicide. Exit International , which represented the scientist, said Goodall passed away while listening to Beethoven's " Ode to Joy ".

"We are in the midst of a protracted battle and our policy is clear: We will not allow Iran to entrench itself militarily in Syria", Netanyahu said in a brief video address.

The third is that Russian Federation, which itself has a large military presence in Syria, will continue to indulge Israel's repeated incursions, preferring diplomatic rebukes to military confrontation.

Recently re-elected, he has plenty of political capital but not a lot of real cash to spare.

"Do we accept extraterritorial sanctions?" The ruble has had a rocky ride in recent months.

"We hit almost all the Iranian infrastructure in Syria", Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman asserted at a security conference following Thursday's morning airstrikes. Russia, like Iran, fights in Syria on the side of the Assad government. But it also emphasizes the diminishing U.S. influence in Syria - and the region in general. "They are determined to do it, and we are determined to prevent it". They fear growing Iranian influence in the region - not just to their north in Syria and Iraq, but over their southern border in Yemen.

The dramatic escalation here was the attack by Iran. No Israeli injuries or damage was reported.

How Iran would handle its Houthi proxies, in this case, is unclear.

Tehran is wary of a wider military conflagration with Israel that could jeopardize its military achievements in Syria at a time when it is trying to salvage the worldwide nuclear deal and may be limited in its ability to strike back. One figure appeared to run inside the truck right before impact.

There was no "plan B".

However, with the Syrian government and its allies continuing to gain victories over the rebels, who have now been reduced to largely the northern Idlib province and other smaller areas, it may appear to Russian Federation that Iran's help in aiding the Syrian regime to defeat the rebels has outlived its usefulness.
